Just finished this new addition to the Confiscated Vagrant Vessel Series! Each piece from this series poses as documentation of the search and seizure of vagrant ships by the Antarctic Collective Navy.

According to historians from the Rothera Historical Society:

At the close of 2536 CE, the search for the missing Antarctic Collective Ship (ACS) Golden Pear intensified. As the search efforts grew desperate, High Counselor Tyrell Welford authorized collecting all possible Antarctic Collective debris found within a 2000 km radius from Bouvet Island by any means necessary. Reclaiming wreckage sunk in the perpetually violent ocean was technologically impossible for Antarctica in the 26th century. The nature of the situation left search parties with only three viable options:

  • Skim for floating debris.
  • Search nearby shorelines.
  • Hunt for debris in the ships of the vagrant vessels that littered the ocean’s waves. 

On January 1st, 2537, the Middle Council passed a measure authorizing the Antarctic Collective Navy to legally confiscate any vagrant vessels suspected to contain salvage belonging to Antarctic Collective ships. Occupants were either grounded on the nearest shore or subject to lethal force.
