New reports have surfaced about a confrontation between Nimbus Station Executive Officer Mike-037 and several of his subordinates. The confrontation occurred in the fighter bay of Nimbus, starting out as a heated disagreement between two groups of enlisted personnel. The argument itself was nothing to write home about, a simple disagreement over the exchange of shifts. However, this disagreement became even more heated and more critical when the XO overheard the disagreement and stepped in to investigate.
Mike-037 inserted himself to calm things down and ended up making them worse. The two sides of the argument joined forces grilling him with questions about the released documents. What would have normally been an issue where several crew would have likely disengaged and calmed down at the sight of a superior turned into a heated stand-off between the group of enlisted man and the station’s second in command. It becomes clear from the video linked below, the crew demonstrate a complete lack of respect for the Lt. Commander.

One thing, however, is crystal clear. Lt. Commander Mike-037 is unflappable during the confrontation, he maintains a clearly authoritative stance and does not get angry in what must have been an entirely frustrating situation. Whether one is to believe the documents accusations the XO was perfectly willing to take the focus and frustration of the group and let it roll off his back and that should be a strong note about his character.
Our own investigation into the actions of Nimbus Station XO Mike-037 have uncovered a conversation told to us by medical staff on condition of anonymity, for fear of reprisal. The conversation took place in the Nimbus Station Sickbay on May 21st. At the time a new Spartan had just spliced in and been treated for multiple injuries. Mike himself admitted that he found it easier to kill aliens.
The pair also had a conversation about the potential for using the developing fan clubs against the system. Apparently the pair have had some degree of experience dealing with the manipulation of public opinions, mentioning being used for propaganda purposes. The entire issue is further complicated by the apparent unwillingness for Mike himself to speak to anyone about this issue, at least nowhere that is visible to the public.
The Department of Protection and Investigation (DPI) has sent investigators to Nimbus Station in order to determine the nature of the allegations and if there is any thing actionable to be done. A high level official within the department commented that the investigators may expand their investigation into other areas if they feel it is necessary to do to. This further highlights the other problems facing Solas Tempus and the political fight they are embroiled in right now.
