ORCA CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS - On Y20 D322, a new financial institution in the outer rim announced its grand opening and entrance into the galactic banking and investment market. According to current galactic records, Outer Rim Commerce Association or ORCA is an upstart in the finance market currently dominated by Galactic Central Bank, Bank of the Core, and InterGalactic Banking Clan. The holopad screen begins with prospective clients begin to file in as the announcement begins.



The holopad screen transitions to Layla Pureheart who begins to speak. "Greetings and welcome to Outer Rim Commerce Association's grand opening announcement, we hope that you find our institution perfect for your financial and trading needs. I give it now to our new Chief Executive Officer, Gabus Peacecraft with the details."



The holopad then transitions and focuses on CEO Peacecraft who begins his statement. "Thank you Layla for the introduction. We at ORCA are excited about our public launch and we hope to stir up change in the current stagnant financial sector with our new take on the traditional banking model. I would first like to state that ORCA is a neutral corporation that offers a multitude of services to the galaxy with a specific goal of trying to give back to the community and providing a platform for the disadvantaged to contribute more to the galaxy as a whole. To this end, we offer a variety of different services potential clients looking to invest, startup business, or just need help during times of financial hardship. Two of the most exciting services we provide are the Galactic Investment Collective and Corporate Initiation. The Galactic Investment Collective or simply known a GIC is our take on a traditional savings and credit account whereas instead of a set APY, investors are paid dividends of 80% of ORCAs profits which the added advantage of the top five investors being granted a seat in our Board of Investors who would be able to give input and give advise the bank on certain corporate affairs and direction. To the aspiring entrepreneurs watching, our Corporate Initiation program may be appealing as it's designed to inject prospective business with credits and assets to help create or maintain their ideas and plans. For the protection of our customers, we have been backed by various community members such as the Count Palatine of Illodia, Solarius Masha for the first Board of Investor's seat, and by being insured by Mishka Sorokin to handle middling deals of up to 1,000,000,000 credits. Next, Tachibana Ryu, our Chief Financial Officer with details on our casino for inner gamblers within us all."



The holopad transitions again to a live video feed of clients enjoying various games at the casino and CFO Ryu begins to speak. "As stated by CEO Peacecraft, for more interactive investors we also provide another avenue for profit through our eloquently designed casino. This is an exciting opportunity for all sentients to enjoy and potentially walk away with far greater amounts than walking in with some luck, smart plays, and fortitude. In the future, we plan on hosting various events such as auctions, prize raffles, and parties so even if you plan on not becoming an investor in the GIC, we still welcome you to enjoy our various planned events. All this information and events will be hosted on our main communications server located here. We at ORCA wish you a whale of a time."

The holopad video transmission feed ends, with an infomercial on marriage counseling.
