Philip Ross addresses Omni-Tek leaders
Philip Ross uses the planetfall anniversary celebrations to address Omni Tek employees in public regarding the recent mysterious visions.
Complete transscript of Ross' Planetfall Address:
Citizens of Rubi-Ka, Omni-Tek Employees, welcome
First I want to thank everyone that helped defend this part of the city yesterday during the incidents that prevented me from meeting you then.
I am also informed by Omni-Tek departments that the investigation into the recent 'visions' that some employees have had is moving forward.
Now let that matter wait, we're here to honor Planetfall day, even if we this year are a few days delayed.
Many long years ago our forefathers touched upon destiny when they made Planetfall upon this planet.A moment in history, when we stepped out from the old and into the new, leaving an age behind us. A moment and when the soul of mankind, long suppressed, finds utterance.
That moment was 775 years ago when the first brave pioneers set foot upon OT3934-12; the planet we now know as Rubi-ka. It is fitting that at this solemn moment we make the pledge of dedication to Omni-Tek, her employees and to the still larger cause of humanity. At the dawn of its colonization of Rubi-ka, Omni-Tek started on it's unending quest, and trackless centuries are filled with the striving and grandeur of her success and her failures.
Through good and ill fortune alike we have never lost sight of that quest or forgotten the ideals which gave it strength. All that you see around you we built in those 775 years, something that happened through blood, sweat and tears of men...
Nay, heroes we must not forget.
Let us remember the crew of Captain Yves Boulez who first arrived in this solar system...
Let us remember Min-Ji Liu, the first human to ever set foot on Rubi-Ka's soil...
Let us remember the pioneers who soon would follow them and disappear...
Let us remember those who stood at the dawn of this planet's history, filled with vision to become what we are today.
The achievement we celebrate today is but a step, an opening of opportunity, compared to the greater triumphs and achievements that awaited us then. Nevertheless, the past is over and it is the future that beckons to us now. That future is not one of ease or resting but of incessant striving so that we might fulfill the pledges we have so often taken and the one we shall take today.
As all of you have heard, through wisdom and hard work, mankind has yet taken the step to a new future, and perhaps a new tomorrow. Again, after 775 years mankind will step out of the old and into the new; again, leaving an age behind.
Like the pioneers of old, new pioneers are moving as we speak to the the city of JOBE to ensure that again OMNI-TEK may continue it's unending quest, for endless trackless centuries to come. Let this day be remembered not just as the day we made Planetfall, but also made the first steps to c.....
(Ross is interrupted by an aide delivering a message)
Fellow employees, during this speech, a force from Omni-Tek Armed Forces moved towards Jobe to put force behind our claim on the portal.
They are under attack.
Driven by these...'visions'...reactionary forces have attacked. Therefore my order must be clear.
I give the Omni-Tek armed forces...No...All Omni-Tek Employees present the order to go to aid them.
That is all. I thank you.
