The Rising Cost of Justice
Several years ago a trio of badly damagedship crash landed in the harbor of Iron City, it was believed that these ships had suffered an attack inspace which drove them to seek refuge on earth. Members of the harbor patrol made their way out to the ships to offer aid to their crews not knowing what they would find waiting for them within. What they found were not injured crewmen, instead they were the first human victims of a species bred to kill. The Sirik were unleashed on the city and they very nearly destroyed it. As more than a hundred of the monstrous aliens swarmed through the city it was only through the efforts of the Red Moons, the Legion, the Corsairs, Blue Boomerang, the Allies of Freedom, the crew of a Qish ship, and ordinary citizens that the invaders were defeated.
This event resulted in a short lived cease fire between the Iron City gangs and the Blue Boomerang being indcuated into the Allies of Freedom. It also resulted in a new less pisitive outlook towards aliens in the eyes of the residents of Iron City, and they have never quite recovered from that prejudice.
