Corrections
• On 2:28, we erroneously referred to Deland Tyerell by his former Aleenan racing nickname of “Pabs.” Tyerell has not used that name in several years, and we apologize for the error.
• On 2:21, we reported on the secession of the Bimkall sector from the Republic. Upon further review, that sector does not exist. HoloNet News apologizes for any confusion.
