A cargo pilot ferrying settlers to the newest world cluster will be in court starting Monday on charges that he vented the oxygen supply to the passenger cabins, asphyxiating all fifty-seven passengers, including eight children. Investigators have reviewed the ship's log, but all cameras were deactivated shortly before the venting.
The pilot could not be reached for questions, but snuck out a partial statement several months ago using a stolen mobile device. ``This is Billy Pagget, Captain of the Dauntless. I was framed. A man in a space suit tampered with the air support systems. My brother-in-law tried to buy my ship last year but I refused. I drafted paperwork to change the beneficiary just a week before--`` The pilot was cut off by the IED before saying more. The chief prosecutor says the ``man in a space suit`` defense will not sway a jury and is confident of a guilty verdict.
