Police Update on Orb Sightings.
It has come to our attention over the last few weeks that ships of an unusual design have been reported throughout the eight galaxies. GalCop would like to assure all Captains that there is as yet no cause for alarm regardless of rumors circulated by the discredited Dr H.Z. ( formerly a senior rocket scientist for Lance & Ferman ) The 'Orb' ships as they have become known have been monitored by 'GalCop' for some time and you can rest assured we are exercising all means at our disposal in our on-going in depth study of this new phenomenon. In the interests of open cooperation with the public here follows infomation pertinent to busy Captains that has so far been deduced by exhaustive investigation. 1) They are quite small. 2) Their ships are quite speedy. 3) They do not carry ID transponders. 4) Their communications so far do not seem to be amenable to our universal translators. 5) We are therefore finding it difficult to charge them under the 'Failure to carry an ID transponder' act. 6) They have been quite antisocial towards officers who have gone about their lawful duty with regard to point 5). We therefore recommend to Captains that until such time as we can initiate a useful verbal intercourse with these beings, a healthy respectful distance be maintained. The Galactic Co-operative of Worlds Police would be grateful for any useful information regarding 'Orb' sightings and purposes.
