Raider mechwarriors on two legs -- manned types and also un-manned types -- were dropped to supervise proceedings and enforced co-operation. Captain George surveyed the scene in person, wearing a purple leather cloak and a military hat.
People were given a matter of hours to decide whether to stay or go. Those who left had to grab what they could carry, and were herded 1000-per-ship, and in a few hours were ferried to the mainland where they were dumped to start life new.
