As many as fourteen (14) Rorquals are reported to have been destroyed in a single Pandemic Legion dreadbomb in western Querious. Zkill currently shows nine (9) of the killmails, along with the losses of a Minokawa, Nidhoggur, and Thanatos that may have attempted to save the mining ships. Also lost was a solitary Skiff, likely in the belt to deal with Mercoxit. Independent reports confirm, however, that the accurate number is fourteen. All of the ships lost belong to KarmaFleet in Goonswarm Federation. At this time it is unknown if the ships were unable to seek outside assistance or simply failed to do so.
One Imperium member speaking anonymously was heard to comment, “Kick Karmafleet.”
