The modern OEDV colony serves as a busy commercial star-port and as a vital defence and maintenance outpost for Star-fleet and Fleet 6. Despite the dramas of the past, life under the Dome is peaceful and content. In fact so peaceful that the colony was recently expanded by the arrival of over five thousand additional colonists. New facilities have been unveiled, new accommodation created and the OED is undergoing a large program of rebuilding to take the OED to the next level.
Very recently OED V has obtained a new civilian Governor who is not the first but is perhaps the youngest Governor of OED V to date. Everett Abbott has dreams to breathe new life into OED V and Fleet Commander Kendra Kerr is looking forward to his work.
We asked Fleet Commander Kendra Kerr, current Fleet Commander of Fleet 6, for her opinions on the current state of the OED.
"As soon as I was appointed the commander of this fine Fleet, it was clear to me there was something special about the Colony. It had grown by leaps and bounds
thanks to the unselfish and enduring work of previous Fleet Commanders, and of course, previous Governors and Lt. Governors. Without their dedication, OED V
would have been left as a devastated planet after that comet struck 10 years before. I have high hopes for this area and those within it"
Life is peaceful now, but there is a rumor the Vrenn are plotting in the background. Do you feel a civilian Governor will be an asset or downfall if an attack should happen?
"Governor Everett Abbott may be young but he was chosen because of his ability to see things from an outside perspective. We are convinced he will bring
a lot of traffic this way and the Vrenn will realize be hostile is no longer a viable option. I am sure true, sustainable peace with the Vrenn is possible
and Abbott, with the wise aid of Commander Jira Silvester, will be able to make this happen."
Everett Abbott had the following to say following his appointment to the role of Governor.
"I personally feel as though the Colony was be under utilized thus far for it's capacity as a tourist destination. Previous attacks years ago by the Vrenn
continue to taint the modern tourists view of OED V. I plan to change that as best I could and have offered tax incentives and low fee building permits
in an attempt to attract more flow this way. In five years from now, I am quite certain we will be saying, Vrenn who?"
