What We Know

Grand Theft Zeppelin

The following is a general status update regarding Roswell and Kaitlynn's attempt to acquire transport out of Little Shanghai.

Being somewhat expensive, most aircraft moored at the Little Shanghai spire are protected by a variety of countermeasures against theft, including active and passive firewalls and nanomachines ranging from the less-than-lethal to probably illegally deadly. However, a cursory search indicates that one target on the spire may lack some of these defenses - the Jenny McCarthy, a brand spanking new ultralight/zeppelin hybrid craft belonging to the Bodily Purity sect of the Church of Natural Medicine. A celebration of some sort appears to be taking place on the platform it's docked at.

Choi Family Drama

The following has been gleaned from quick mesh research following a meeting with Allen "The Gang" Scott.

Roswell is either a fork of or has been unwillingly forked to another Roswell (hereafter referred to as Roswell 2.0), who appears to be a generally upstanding hyperelite corporate citizen. A quick mesh search will list him as Senior VP for Combat Applications at Cognite, as well as a member of the Board of Directors for Direct Action. Additionally, there is evidence that he has consulted with TerraGenesis regarding facilities security for their terraforming infrastructure.

There is no evidence that Roswell 2.0 existed more than 3 days prior to the arrival of Roswell and Kaitlynn in Little Shanghai [AF 10 January 28, Planetary Standard], but a joint press release issued by Cognite and the Choi Family claims that Roswell 2.0 is the victim of identity theft and forknapping, and that the other Roswell is merely a low-quality fork that has been subjected to blunt psychosurgery by Barsoomian separatists in order to turn him into a psychotic radical for public relations purposes.
