The first battle of the rebellion is a defeat, and it shocks the administration, but with media blackout now across over half of the Federation, very little news of the battle reaches the public's ears.
Some citizens still regularly protest the policies of the Federation but their numbers ever dwell. The law enforcers have gone from overseeing the protesters to brutalising them. Most of their leaders, including Rudolph Pyrolithic, a grandson of the distinguished Randall, are detained on unspecified charges and coerced to confess. The media fill the airwaves with reports on these enemys of the Federation while glossing over the rebellion.
