For several weeks, things have been taking shape regarding the recovery of the pods, whose presence is now confirmed, being held in the Titans. After a scanner upgrade, it is now Sirius offering a potential solution for extracting the pods. This development is inevitably posing a problem for Medicorp. Explanation.

It’s an ethical question that the NGO will have to face in the coming hours and days following today’s announcement by Sirius Corporation regarding the solutions proposed to extract the pods kidnapped by Thargoids, held in the heart of the Titans (see the article). Indeed, since its foundation in 3303, Medicorp has always categorically refused the use of any type of weapons during its missions. By essence, no rescue ship can be equipped with any form of weapon: offensive, defensive, mining, etc. Even on SRVs, which come equipped as standard, the use of lasers is prohibited for rescuers. This militant doctrine is the guarantee of neutrality, allowing medics to work on many fronts and to be tolerated by a large majority of political organizations, pirates, military, scientists, etc.

The latest developments regarding research to extract pods from the Titans were, until today, relatively well accepted by Medicorp, which was already ready to save innocent victims. However, the solution envisaged by Sirius, consisting of modifying underground penetrating charge missiles used for mining, is not at all to the liking of Medicorp’s authorities. If this solution is indeed retained, it cannot, a priori, be used by Medicorp rescuers since it directly contradicts their creed.

Medicorp at an Impasse

For the first time since its foundation, MediCorp is facing a complex and significant dilemma: saving lives with the unavoidable constraint of using missiles or being unable to do anything?

At the moment, the leadership of the organization has not spoken on the matter and has not responded to our questions. Will Medicorp establish an exceptional derogation? Or will it remain firm in its founding principles to avoid potential abuses? Or will it forge an uneasy alliance with third-party ships, thereby relinquishing its neutrality and its commitment to not forming alliances?

It will be very interesting to follow the lively discussions already beginning in pilot bars in Kalak and the surrounding areas. In any case, without a definitive confirmation from Sirius on the chosen solution, there is little chance that Medicorp will take a firm stance… but it is clear that administrators, philosophers, doctors, and rescuers must be debating the best… or least bad… decisions to make.
