History[edit | edit source]
In 2266, Rajipur was aware that 1990s pacifist Alfred Bleikoff had recently been revived from cryogenic freeze and would be giving a press conference on Earth. He spotted Bleikoff in India disembarking from a shuttlecraft along with Captain James T. Kirk and called to him, identifying himself as a reporter. As a result, Bleikoff gave his press conference a day earlier than planned in the Taj Mahal.
During the conference, Rajipur asked if there was something he'd seen about Earth that he didn't like, and Bleikoff answered that he felt an "absence of human warmth." That statement created a media frenzy and was the focus of coverage in Space News and other media. (TOS comic: "Prophet of Peace")
- It was unspecified whether Rajipur's Interplanetary Press article was the one printed in Space News. At least nine other reporters attended the press conference.
