The Observer Section

5

General Trygve Lie sat on his chair, focused on reading a report that he got from one of his men. They were assigned to monitor the situation of a large reptilian creature, witnessed by one of the satellites as it left the smoldered remains of the Authority's Site-014. Apart of him wanted what the satellites saw to be completely false, a mistake caused by radiation interference, even though he knew that wasn't a thing. The monitor on his terminal told him a different story.

Feeling as if he had gotten all the information he needed for the report, the uneasy general walked out of his office.

"General Lie!" The General's second in command was waiting outside of his office, standing in attention as the man opened the door to leave.

"As you were. Now, tell me why you're here?" The General was of an older breed, short white hair, just over 6 feet tall, and still in good shape.

"The UNAAC is holding a meeting." The General towered above Michelle Pearce, his the over-eager Lieutenant-General. She was of the newer breed, short hair, and in good shape.

"What does that have to do with us?" Blue Book rarely got involved in what the UNAAC did, which is why he was not going to attend.

"I heard rumors that they know who was behind the detonation of that nuke in Nevada"

"Unless whatever terror group did it has access to spaceships, it does not concern us."

"A little birdie may have told the Russian government about the Authority's AEGIS, which may or may not be brought up in the meeting, but I can't confirm that."

"Perhaps I will attend it then. Though you shouldn't just give out incriminating information to governments for no reason" The General said as he made his way down the hall, towards the meeting room in which the UNAAC meets.

"The Russians offered the little birdie some additional funding if the bird gave them more information on the incident."

"I think that is called 'taking a bribe' if I am not mistaken." The General did not like this type of political game.

"Considering what the report said about the large reptile leaving the blast site. I think we, the little birdie, will need the extra funding" She said, although hated to admit it.

Two security officials stood in front of the doors that lead to the meeting room. They were well built and firm.

"Apologies sir, but this area is restricted." The security official on the left stated.

General Trygve took out a laminated piece of paper, no bigger than a trading card, from his pocket and showed it the two security officials. "You know the rules of being a representative of a non-member state, right?"

The man on the right glanced at the paper, and at General Trygve.

"You may not speak unless asked to, and you may not vote."

General Trygve embraced what the security officer said, though he felt agitated by it.

Both of the security officials opened the door, catching the attention of the other representatives as General Trygve revealed himself entering the room.

"It's nice to see Blue Book deciding to show up, please take your seats at the observation area." The Speaker glared at General Trygve as he entered, not impressed by the time of the General's arrival.

"This meeting is now in session." The Speaker said as she banged her gavel twice.

The meeting was uninteresting, the Russians only beat around the bush in their attempt to bring up the AEGIS to the Authority. And with the main reason for his attention to the meeting passed, General Lie zoned out for the remainder of the talking.

After it was adjourned, the General made his way to Jennifer Smith, the representative for GEAR.

"Hello Jennifer, it's been a while"

"What business do you have with GEAR?" Jennifer went straight to the point.

"I need a status update on those actuators that we hired you to develop"

The president of GEAR was visibly distressed from this question, "I actually have the files for those in my briefcase, we actually completed the project, and the files in my briefcase are the blueprints. But a few weeks back the UNAAC passed a motion prohibits the sale of blueprints developed by para-companies to individuals or groups that are not direct members of the UNAAC, or directly approved by them. This includes observer organizations, like Project Blue Book."

The General sighed, "of course they did something like this… Just give me the blueprints, I'll deal with the fallout."

Jennifer examined her options, thinking about Blue Book and its position to the UNAAC. She knew that Blue Book was technically a higher power than the UNAAC, and she knew that Blue Book paid really well. "Alright," The president of the para-company opened her briefcase and handed the General a rather large file that used elastic bands to keep papers from falling out.

The General took the file back to his office where Pearce was waiting patiently, "What happened?" She was curious about the meeting the General had left.

"Nothing interesting, the Russians failed to do much with what the 'little birdie' gave them."

"That's a shame. Say, what's that your holding?"

"The blueprints for the last piece to the TitanX. I just need to send it to the SRB so they can finalize the design, then we will get the EMB to begin production." The General smiled as he entered his office. He removed the elastic bands from the folder and began to scan them, one at a time, with the device that others would often mistake for a printer on his desk. The process took a little of half an hour, but after the scanning was complete he put the papers back in order in the folder and sent it to the archives.

He sent the file he made with the scanned papers to the part of SRB where it was needed. He then looked at the report of the oversized lizard he left on his desk during the UNAAC meeting. "Now the weapon we designed specifically to kill oversized Xenos like you, has its last piece." The Head General couldn't help but smile as he said this.




The General smiled as he looked at the TitanX-01, towering above any other mech that Bluebook had produced before. Lie knew that this was needed, as the frequency of Kaiju appearances had been rapidly increasing in modern times. Though he could not help but create the proposal for the TitanXI in his mind. That's not to say that the TitanX wasn't impressive to him, because how could 60 meters of mecha not impress a person?

The next day Lie put in the order for the development of the TitanXI, with the only real improvement he wanted being that the mind of the pilot wouldn't become stuck in the machine. Which was something that the SRB could get on board with.

"Hopefully we don't have to use this thing before the TitanXI is done." The General said as he sat up in his chair, ready for another busy day of work when he heard a knock on his door. "May I come in?" the General's second in command said from the other side of the door.

"You may"

Pearce entered the office and stood in attention, "The UNAAC is having a meeting" she stated.

"At ease, what's this meeting about?"

"The UNAAC is going to be-"

There was another knock on the door, "UNAAC needs Project Blue Book to be represented in the next meeting." The voice on the other side of the door was not one that the General recognized. "I'll be there" Trygve answered. Footsteps could be heard as whoever was at the door left.

"I think I know what the meeting is about now" the General stated, "do you mind assuming control while I am at this meeting?"

"Yes sir" the Michelle answered as she stood in attention.

General Trygve exited his office and made his way towards the meeting hall. "Come right in" The two men in front of the door were quick to let the General in. Trygve Lie knew how the UNAAC treated him in different scenarios, and he knew what it meant when they treated him well.

The General opened the door, to find that he had arrived slightly late. "Now that Bluebook has arrived we can begin, please take your seat in the defendant's area" The Speaker was not impressed by the time of the General's arrival. "Now let us begin this trial" The speaker stated.

"This is the case of GEAR breaking UNAAC terms of service and selling developed blueprints to the non-member organization known as Project Blue Book" The speaker announced why the General was here.

The majority of this "trial" was simply the examination of security footage showing the GEAR representative handing the General the folder that contained the blueprints of the actuators Bluebook needed. Even though Bluebook was one of the defendants Trygve wasn't called to the stand until nearly 3 hours into the trial.

When he was brought to the stand, he immediately ignored the questions that the prosecutor asked him and began to speak his own words, "Under the collateral damage criminal immunity act section 9, any third party hired by Project Blue Book may be completely pardoned of any crimes committed while under the command of Project Blue Book. And since GEAR was under our employ, they are immune to your laws."

"That only applies in emergency scenarios, so unless you can provide proof of this being an emergency scenario then that doesn't apply." The Speaker was persistent.

"Here you go" The General handed the Speaker a document from his inner coat pocket.

The Speaker spoke again, "What am I looking at?"

General Lie responded, "a classified ongoing operation"

"How am I supposed to believe you?"

"Because I am the acting Head General of Project Blue Book, and I have far more to lose by lying here than I have to gain"

"Is there any other evidence that you can provide to assure us that this is an Emergency Scenario"

"The description of an Emergency Scenario is that the acting Head General of Project Blue Book considers it an Emergency Scenario, so if I say it is an Emergency Scenario that's what it is"

The Speaker went quite and the General spoke again, "If that is all I will be taking my leave."

"You can't just leave in the middle of a trial" The Speaker was trying to keep any order they could in this courtroom.

"Project Blue Book isn't subject to the laws of the UNAAC, and we never will be" The General made his way to the doors of the meeting hall and exited them swiftly. Making extra effort to return to his office in a timely manner, and continue the work that he felt actually mattered.
