From the Desk of Fleet Admiral:
Dear Fellow crew members of the Sephiroth and the ZAFT. I have seen some lack of duties on some of my ships during the First Year of ZAFT. If you do not meet your standards of your rank and position, here is the Airlock and say goodbye. I know my members will not slack off now. I hope will never resort to this option.
