Labor Day 2011. The S.S. Victoria Alvarez shipped from the port of San Pedro and began her cruise across the Pacific Ocean with 144 Passengers. Captain Jonathan Kincaid kept a tight control of his crew and passengers. Standing at Six feet Four inches and a slight paunch and graying hair was a hard ass to his crew but they respected him nonetheless. Having served in the Navy for two decades Captain Kincaid tolerated very little when it came to his men and even the passengers were in awe of him. Among the passengers were 76 men and 68 women.

Henry prepped the Spinach as he broke over 14 heads of it and with a serrated knife began to break it down further and walking into the freezer to grab severl batches of Carrots and walking back out of the Freezer he tossed them on the metal table with one hand and closing the freezer door with the other hand. Tall and gangly with jet black hair and wearing white pants and a red shirt with a white smock over it. Greer was ladling the Beef & Broccoli in to a small bowl. Greer's red hair and his grey uniform clashed thought Henry.

Howland Island lay over 60 miles to the southwest of the Cruise Liner Victoria Alvarez. To the men on the deck of the submarine they saw the shape of of the Cruise Liner as it began to be enveloped by the evening sky. Without any explanation the Moon appeared to envelop the Cruise Liner. Xian-Le the Executive Officer pointed to it and explained that could not be the real Moon to his Commander, Wo-Fan. They climbed back down into the submarine and returned to their duties without much thought to what they had just seen.

How this piece of American history came to be on Titan is a mystery to us all but I promise all of you that I will do everything in my power to find the answer to this mystery and therefore I am appointing a task force to investigate this mystery. Thank you and God bless us all on this holiday and give thanks to god we are still in his bosom. Let us all enjoy this day and remember those people who have fallen in the name of Freedom and Liberty" "There you have it folks as we just learned from President Edwin Perry about the mystery of the Victoria Alvarez that disappeared on Labor Day of 2011.

2077 AD. After reading the report from the National Space and Air Intelligence's final conclusion of what caused the mystery disappearance of the Victoria Alvarez President Lyman Pitt wanted to know more about the Presidential Administration of that time. "I want to see any and all documents from President Dennis Richardson's administration, on this matter as fast as possible. Do you understand me?" cried President Lyman Pitt. Dumbfounded as to how an Ocean Liner like the Victoria Alvarez could be found on a moon of Jupiter's was stupefying and with the answer in front of him it still boggled his mind. Chase Hoagland, his Executive Assistant ran out of the Oval Office with his blonde hair loosening from it's usual neat and poofed pompadour look. Not even a full month yet into his administration the new President while sitting at his desk and realizing if he can't handle the information once it becomes public knowledge everything could blow up in his face.

December 2011. "Do you have any answers as to the how or why the Victoria Alvarez disappeared in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Mr. Hoagland" asked President Dennis Richardson. Edwin Hoagland sat down and opened the file and glanced at it before beginning. "All we have learned is that there's a thin connection between the owners of the Victoria Alvarez and a mysterious organization known as the Forum. Apparently a former member had a falling out with the Forum and we have only sketchy information on the Forum. There is no documentation other than that this organization was incorporated back before the Revolutionary period and a loose connection to Scottish aristocracy".

April 2014. Tony Shelburne was poring over the papers of Walker Shelburne, his Great Grandfather. After 6 hours Tony was getting tired when he decided to look at one more page. Halfway down the page Walker Shelburne describes his appearing before a meeting of the Firm in the summer of 1919 and sketchily describes his business with this mysterious organization. "I do not trust this organization and only had to meet with them because of my appearing at an old castle in Scotland that one of their ancestors owned. I told them that as a writer I was doing research on Scottish Castles. Despite them trying to inquire about what I had learned they did not quite believe me and were asking me some personal questions. I stopped them and decided that my life was not worth their inquiries. Over the years I heard of this organization only in whispered tones and as I got older bits and pieces of information on them would appear in my researches for the stories I was writing.

I am sure they still exist and must warn you to be cautious when it comes to the rich and powerful interests that tend to keep positions in academia, the media, businesses, government, et. al" After reading this Tony Shelburne filed the information away and returned to his life thinking that maybe some day.
