Coralhouse Denied

28 Jun 05

An Academy ethics board has rejected a huge legacy left by the late Ruth Coralhouse because the conditions attached were considered inappropriate. She wanted the money to go towards research into producing a device to transport physical objects between Perplex City and Earth, so that her ashes could be scattered here. Academy rep Valerian Reynolds said that accepting the gift might unduly influence the direction of their research.

Salk Briefly Emerges from Sudden Coma

23 Jun 05

Sentinel reporter Pietro Salk revives briefly from his coma to work furiously on his key, before collapsing again. The fruits of his labour are posted by his wife on their family website.

(The doctors aren't saying what caused the coma in the first place, but it looks very like a malicious attack using some kind of neural disruptor - the same kind of weapon used in the Cube theft. Has Pietro become another victim of V?)

Some things I don't know

15 Jun 05

Violet is shocked by the message encrypted on the Recon key. (The solution is explained in full here.) It seems that Aiko Entrescore, a member of the Academy's Cube Retrieval Team, is also a secret member of the Recons.

But that isn't the biggest shock. The worst comes when one of the Cube Hunters on Earth decides to email Sente with the news - leading to Aiko's immediate and very public arrest. Violet isn't sure she can trust us anymore.

Iona Interviews... Henrik Tanner

1 Jun 05

An interview with the Academy's Head of Security - the man responsible for protecting (and losing) the Cube. The chat reveals a few interesting details. For example, the Cube theft could have been executed by a team of four people, if two had specialised skills in hardware and software. The heat sensors and 'k-locks' used in the museum are also said to have been rather antiquated. But Tanner is sure Sente will get the Cube back.
