As long as this campaign features God Emperor Trump in Terminator Armor, I approve.
I always like to add a bit of satire into my house campaigns, too. The Gun Drone strike bit is a stroke of brilliance. Games are meant to be fun, injecting humor wherever possible is highly encouraged.
If I may add some humorous injections:
The presumptive new leader of the Water Caste has been accused of violating security protocols when transmitting classified data over the Tau comms relay and these transmissions were intercepted by agents of the United Systems of Atreidia. The data was related to the Gun Drone strikes. (Too soon?)
One of the United Systems of Atreidia representatives to the Tau empire is promising free admission to the Tau Air, Earth, Water and Fire Caste academies (a right normally only reserved for Tau). There are Gue'La rioting on the planetoids of Atreidia for such concessions from the empire.
There is dissent among the citizens of the United Systems of Atreidia, the two largest of their factions are split between representatives-- the argument being over how much participation or autonomy Atreidia should have within the Tau sphere (i.e. would Tau goods be taxed when imported, or would Atreidian goods be taxed when exported, participation in the Tau education and healthcare systems, etc.). Depending on how far home you wanted to drive the point, you could insert something to the effect of "Northern Atreidian Fringe Trade Agreement (NAFTA)."
