  • Galactic News: Colonia Population Boom

    2017-06-25

    The latest census data from Colonia indicates that the system has seen a massive influx of immigrants in recent weeks. Although precise details have not been made public, it is understood that many of the region's new citizens are from the core systems.
    The spike follows the introduction of a migration subsidy from the Colonia Council, which has made it much cheaper for potential immigrants to reach Colonia. Sources close to the Council have confirmed that the move was designed to stimulate economic growth by attracting skilled workers to the region.
    The Colonia colony was founded almost a year ago, and since then it has expanded rapidly. For some, it represents an alternative to the violence and political disharmony they believe has come to characterise life in the core systems.
    Social and political experts have predicted that as long as the Federal-Imperial conflict persists, the Colonia community will continue to grow.

  • Galactic News: Weekly Expansion Report

    2017-06-25

    This report presents the latest data on expansion and withdrawal among the galaxy's minor factions.
    Here are the latest factions to have expanded into new systems:
    Alliance of Yemakinni
    Hraean United
    Selkit Crimson Raiders
    Socho Gold Raiders
    Hel Purple Energy Industry
    Kokara Galactic Exchange
    Gold General Corp.
    Sirius Hot2Cold
    Tujing Empire Party
    Values Party of Belis
    Expansions occur when a minor faction reaches a sufficient level of influence and there is a populated system within striking distance. Expansion is costly, so when a faction expands, the wealth and development level of the system it controls are temporarily reduced.
    Here are the latest factions in withdrawal:
    HIP 73428 Exchange
    Independents of Mildeptu
    Alioth Pro-Alliance Group
    BD+07 4267 Gold General PLC
    Yenistani Guardians of Tradition
    Sui Xenates Indie Union
    Dinde Systems
    Briganu Confederacy
    Begovans Industry
    Mabe Company
    Factions are considered to be in withdrawal if their level of influence within a system drops below a certain level. If the faction's influence remains low for a total of five days, the faction must leave the system entirely. If the faction manages to increase its level of influence, it remains in the system.

Combat activities can bring a civil war to an end.
    Here are the latest factions to experience war:
    Colanja Gold Power Services
    Wolf 359 Blue Travel Commodities
    Coalition of Ngaliba
    Ololos Drug Empire
    The Pilots Federation

    Labour of Geras
    Wars occur when a minor faction invades a star system controlled by another minor faction. For the duration of the war, the standard of living, wealth level and security level in the disputed system are reduced. Combat activity between the two warring factions determines the outcome of the conflict. If neither faction succeeds in dominating the other, the war ends in a ceasefire.

  • Galactic News: Superpower Campaigns End

    2017-06-25

    Last week, the Empire and the Federation launched initiatives designed to bolster their presences in the Pleiades star cluster.
    Both superpowers placed open orders for construction materials for use in their respective campaigns, and the response from the galactic community was overwhelmingly positive. Huge quantities of material were delivered to Obsidian Orbital for both the Federal campaign and the Imperial initiative.
    It seems that despite widespread opposition to the Federal-Imperial conflict, both superpowers still enjoy considerable support among the galactic community.
    The Merope Expeditionary Fleet, which coordinated the Imperial initiative, and the Pleiades Resource Enterprise, which oversaw the Federal campaign, have extended their gratitude to their supporters.
    Pilots who contributed to the initiatives can now collect their rewards from Obsidian Orbital in the Maia system.

  • Community Goal: Colonia Expansion Initiative

    2017-06-25

    As the Colonia community continues to grow, the Junkyard Dogs have placed an open order for various commodities to support another wave of expansion.
    A spokesperson for the organisation confirmed the materials would be used to construct new outposts in the region. The amount of materials received will determine exactly how many outposts are built.
    The Junkyard Dogs have promised to reward pilots who deliver tantalum, power generators and silver to their base of operations at Tolagarf's Junkyard.
    The campaign begins on the 22nd of June 3303 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.

  • Community Goal: Renowned Chef Issues Appeal

    2017-06-25

    Celebrated chef and culinary scholar Dr Cordelius Swainn has issued an appeal to the galactic community for rare goods for one of his famous celebrity soirees.
    In a statement, Swainn said:
    "I create unique dining experiences for the wealthiest patrons and most important dignitaries to visit the Lave system. I will be hosting another of these events in a few weeks for one of my most important clients, and am therefore seeking rare commodities from across the galaxy. But it is not only food I require – I am in need of a wealth of exotic goods, all of which will contribute to overall ambience."
    The appeal is being financed by Dr Swainn's corporate partner, Lave Incorporated, which has promised to reward pilots who deliver the requested commodities to Lave Station.
    The campaign begins on the 22nd June 3303 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.

  • Freelance Report: Canonn Responds to Thargoid Revelation

    2017-06-25

    Doctor Arcanonn of the Canonn Interstellar Research Group has issued a statement from the Gnosis concerning the recent discovery that the so-called Unknown Ships are in fact of Thargoid origin.
    "Finally, the Thargoids have revealed themselves, moving from the shadows into the starlight. We cannot predict where this road will lead, but surely there is no way back. We stand at a precipice, staring into the abyss...yet we can take some comfort from the fact that humanity has faced this threat before and prevailed."
    "The first reports of Unknown Artefacts – riddles in space – now seem so long ago. How could we have known it would come to this?"
    "Rest assured that should the worst happen, should governments fall and our civilisation be shaken to its very foundations, Canonn will stand against the darkness."

  • Galactic News: Galactic Leaders Address Thargoid Discovery

    2017-06-25

    The leaders of the galaxy's major powers have responded to news that the mysterious ships seen in the Maia system and Pleiades Nebula are Thargoid vessels.
    Federal President Zachary Hudson released a characteristically forthright statement.
    "Earlier this year, I said I would rather prepare for an attack that may not come than be met by an attack I did not prepare for. Well, the Federation has not been idle. For months, we have been expanding our Navy in preparation for just such a day. Some, such as Edmund Mahon, believe this is unnecessary. But perhaps Mr Mahon has not read the reports of Federal ships being attacked by Thargoid vessels. If the Thargoids want a fight, it's a fight they'll get."
    Addressing the media from the Imperial Palace on Capitol, Emperor Arissa Lavigny-Duval said:
    "The facts are these: the Thargoids have highly sophisticated starships, they have a relationship with the organic constructs, and they have the means to remotely disable human spacecraft. In some quarters, these facts have given rise to concern. But I urge you not to panic. The human race has surmounted countless challenges in the past, and created a civilisation that spans hundreds of star systems. Do not be too quick to discount the human race."
    Finally, Alliance Prime Minister Edmund Mahon released the following statement:
    "Our next steps must be taken with great care. Despite President Hudson's claims to the contrary, there is no proof that the Thargoids have attacked Federal vessels. We must not assume the Thargoids are hostile. Theirs is clearly an intelligent and technologically sophisticated race. There is a great deal we could learn from them."

  • Galactic News: Weekly Economic Report

    2017-06-25

    This report presents the latest data on the economic health of the galaxy's minor factions.
    Here are the latest factions to experience an economic boom:
    Colanja Gold Power Services
    Social Zaragas Independents
    New 31 Aquilae Green Party

    LTT 377 Purple General Corp.
    G 41-14 Purple Travel Solutions
    Kokary Holdings
    Cemiess Commodities
    Eravate Network
    Laedla and Co
    Boom is usually the result of consistent trade profit and completed trade contracts. When a faction experiences a boom, the wealth of the system it controls temporarily increases and trade missions completed in the system have double the effect on influence. The faction's influence may also increase. Booms typically last until they naturally expire.
    Here are the latest factions to experience an economic bust:
    Nang Ta-khian Public Co
    Lambda Hydri Jet Clan
    League of 36 Ursae Majoris
    Caraswang Gold Public Inc
    h Draconis Resistance
    Values Party of Orishpucho
    Lambda Hydri Industry
    Gyvatiges Citizen Party
    Amun Public Co
    Orishpucho Crimson Legal Int
    When a faction experiences a bust, the wealth of the system it controls is temporarily reduced and the faction's influence is temporarily diminished. Trade actions do not contribute to boom while a bust is active. A bust typically has to run its course before ending.
