Pretender to the Throne Announces an Alliance With the TCC! By John Comyn, Associated Press April 30, 2562 AVALON, KLAUDOF — The second fleet of the Terran Colonial Confederation's navy has established a blockade around the Klaudof system after a diplomatic incident and months of tense negotiations between the Terran Confederation and the Avalonian government. The blockade has turned back any ships attempting to enter the system and has blocked most communications from within the system. Guinevere III of House Pendragon, daughter of the previously deposed monarch had announced an alliance with the T.C.C. shortly before the blockade was established in a bid to return the previous regime to its position of power. The Avalonian government and Star King Penruddock have been rendered unable to provide any statement due to the blockade. In response to the Terran Confederation's military intervention, the S.C.G. has issued a partial trade embargo on the Terran Confederation. Speaker of the Sol Assembly Jackson Ishmael has issued a statement condemning the actions of the T.C.C., and urges them to pull back their naval forces under the threat of harsher sanctions.
