Report on the Culling of ___M7S-218___:

The planet moon M7S-218 was culled on 08 – 234 – 1/34 (Genii standard) .

Culling began at ___dawn + 8___. The Gate was locked until ___dawn + 13___.

The first Homeworld First Response (HFR) teams arrived at dawn + 13.2 . This response time is excellent average poor .


The nine (9) HFR teams had at their disposal two (2) flying vehicles and five (5) wheeled multi-terrain vehicles. This enabled a wide area to be covered in a very short time. We had a professional staff of ten (10) trauma surgeons (Manaran, Genii, Satedan, and Vra), thirteen (13) paramedics, and twenty-five (25) qualified nurses, as well as all available volunteer staff from nineteen (19) medical facilities. We were able to quickly triage patients and remove them to appropriate trauma centers, three portable on-world units and four off-world (Homeworld Center for Paediatrics, Genii Traumatic Burn Center, Homeworld Emergency Care, and Manara General Health). The Death in Transit rate was 38%, significantly lower than on post-culling rescues without flying vehicles.

No live Wraith were encountered.

There was evidence of significant resistance around the medium-sized city nearest the gate. The culling was apparently terminated midway. There was evidence of off-world assistance, possibly Genii.

Dearest Cousin:

I hope this finds you alive and well. We are glad of the latest reprieve, even though all we can do is lick our wounds. Every night I find myself praying that if God is merciful She will strike down every Wraith that walks. I fear for my soul; your own Nanama would have heavy words for me, and scriptures about Understanding and Balance. But I would rejoice. I would dance on the bones on the Wraith.

Anyway! I am inclosing datafiles and videofiles of a mystery patient we received accidentally after M7S-218. I'd appreciate your running the palm and retina scans against your military database, or maybe known mercenaries? I haven't heard of any official Genii involvement in the expulsion of the Wraith, but I can read between the lines — real heroism took place there, cousin, the sort we need more of.

Our patient is aphasic but other than that fairly clever, good with the younger ones, hard-working, surely missed. But as you know, repatriation is mandatory after a month — these cullings stretch our resources to and beyond breaking point. We're meant to be first responders, after all. We cannot rebuild societies or lives or cities, just bodies, and that not very well these days. Pray for me, I'm starting to understand despair. But I would feel better if you could find my mystery Genii's kin!

Love to your brother and your little ones, and do visit again soon (bring those taha noodles!),

DataFile&L.Radim#E.Weir: Greetings
Dr Weir:

When last we spoke, I gave you my condolences on behalf of my people on your loss.
Now I think I would like to give you something rather different. No strings attached,
I think you say; you also say, from the goodness of my heart? I would like you to
remember that the Genii understand honour, and love, and family.

You can contact me the usual way. I will be waiting.
