This audio was commissioned for a bit of a joke to please the players in my Traveller RPG campaign.  In the campaign, the Aslan forces have invaded the bottom of the sub sector. By all accounts the Aslan have been rolling over the forces of the Imperium. This invasion is a backdrop for the campaign, rather than the focus. Anyway, this audio was a snippet of news brought in by Xboat.
