Our Crunchy are state-of-the-art autonomous operating units that are there to support the Squishy units. They are AI units that operate within strict boundaries set by the Earth Corporation Technological Alliance and as such they do not harm or act unilaterally against Squishy.
Reports have been circulating that Crunchy have rendered Squishy units against their will. We can assure you that this does not happen. These are times of conflict and as you know, in battle, there are occasions where it is necessary to render some Squishy for water for the the survival and resupply of existing units on Mars. Each Crunchy comes equipped with the ability to render Squishy through a door located in the main section, but all Squishy introduced to this entrance has done so voluntarily and with pride.
As you know, the abilities of the "Chair" in residence on a Satellite in orbit around Mars are transferable to the Company Representative. These abilities include being able to determine when the fiscal year Quarters will start and when movement is allowed to commence.
Movement usually proceeds from the chosen "first" player and rotates on the agreed clockwise Earth rotation basis.
We are happy to announce that a new power has been ratified at the EAGM (Earth Annual General Meeting) and now the Chair has the ability to not only determine which Company commences movement in the Quarter, but also will be able to determine the EXACT order of Company commencement.
We would like to put an end to the rumour that the biologically bred space exploration units commonly referred to as "Squishy" are missing Earth citizens who where being subjected to Indentured Servitude. They are NOT.
We all know that there are citizens who are subject to Debt Repayment Through Labor as legally established by the Credit Card companies in 2028. This does not mean that there is any connection between our Corporation and citizens subject to Labor Repayment being pressed into service as Squishy for space exploration.
The New York True News reporter who "broke" this supposed supposition was actually found to be suffering from previously undiagnosed paranoid schizophrenia and has left the news industry to seek professional help.
We cannot explain the disappearance of so many Indentured citizens, nor should we have to. It is true a subsidiary of our Corporation manages several Indentured Service Depots, but they have been under Corporate FBI investigation. We refer you to the CFBI report that concluded that the missing citizens had indeed travelled off-Earth before disappearing, but the report concluded they were either on vacation or had moved to space to avoid Debt Repayment Through Servitude.
Our Corporate Squishy only come from vat grown cloning techniques that are Corporate FDA approved and subject to rigorous oversight and supervision. Squishy are autonomous biological worker bees and nothing more. They have carefully restricted intelligence and need constant direction from our Satellites in orbit to explore and do the job they were "trained" to do with cognitive brain impression. While in space, Squishy are kept at a minimum moistness level and are in stasis until reactivated through rehydration with water. Squishy are also ethically recycled for the water when their usefulness has ended. We restate that Squishy are not people.
We at the Corporation would like to unequivocally state that OUR Corporation has absolutely nothing to do with the Solent Red travesty. We're not too sure about the involvement of the other Corporations however, because that would just be the kind of inhumane thing in which they would be involved.
