You mean there's actually more information on the original colony drop over
Australia (which seems to be what you're saying in stating that the Feds
diverted it)? The most I'd ever heard was that it occurred. Its always

one ever worried about any of the details (except for the new bay that the
Albion flies over in 0083).
