  • Galactic News: Data Appeal Concludes

    2017-01-24

    Engineer Ram Tah has announced that his appeal for data from the Synuefe ruins has been enthusiastically received by the galactic community. Hundreds of independent pilots responded to the appeal, resulting in a massive influx of deliveries to Felice Dock, the campaign's centre of operations.
    As the campaign drew to a close, Ram Tah released a brief statement.
    "I am hugely grateful to the galactic community for its support. It is my hope that this data will allow us to unlock the monolith network and discover further Guardian sites."
    Pilots who contributed to the initiative can now collect their rewards from Felice Dock in the Meene system.

  • Galactic News: Weekly Economic Report

    2017-01-24

    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
    HIP 105577 One
    Avan Labour Union
    LTT 377 Purple General Corp.
    Order of Ethgreze
    G 41-14 Purple Travel Solutions
    Ruchbah Industry
    Cemiess Commodities
    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:
    LHS 535 Silver United Ltd
    49 Arietis Left Party
    San Guan Silver Family
    14 Herculis Commodities
    Independent Sopdu Labour
    League of 36 Ursae Majoris
    Surya PLC
    Workers of MCC 445 Green Party
    HIP 1419 Empire Consulate
    Taurina Silver Transport PLC
    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.

  • Galactic News: Sirius Corporation Campaign Ends

    2017-01-24

    A spokesperson for the Sirius Corporation has announced that its appeal for microresources has been enthusiastically received by the galactic community. Hundreds of pilots responded to the corporation's appeal by delivering unknown fragments, untypical shield scans and aberrant shield pattern analysis to Cormack Hub in the Procyon system.
    As the campaign drew to a close, Li-Yong Rui, CEO of Sirius Gov, released a statement:
    "While irresponsible fortune hunters continue to destabilise the galaxy's starports by selling Unknown Artefacts on the black market, the galaxy's superpowers stand idly by, mired in bureaucracy and paralysed by indecision. Well, we say: no more."
    "I will do everything in my power to put an end to the technological plague and restore the galaxy's starports to functionality. The effort to conquer this epidemic starts now."
    Pilots who contributed to the initiative can now collect their rewards from Cormack Hub in the Procyon system.

  • Galactic News: Weekly Expansion Report

    2017-01-24

    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:
    The Pilots Federation
    39 Tauri Interstellar
    Liberals of Delta Pavonis
    Co-operative of Yiman
    Kuwemargl Patrons of Law
    Heike Co
    Kapurri Emperor's Grace
    Kondriates Prison Colony
    LHS 199 Guardians of Tradition
    Jaques
    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:
    Labour of Ethgreze
    Kokary Liberals
    Eranin Peoples Party
    BD+07 4267 Gold General PLC
    LHS 3598 Transport Group
    HIP 13269 Silver Drug Empire
    Dominion of Skadjalini
    HIP 113632 Empire Consulate
    Aisoci Empire League
    Briganu Confederacy
    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.

  • Galactic News: Clandestine Federal-Imperial Negotiations?

    2017-01-24

    Animosity between the Empire and the Federation has been growing for months, but leaked communications suggest that clandestine negotiations may be taking place between the two superpowers.
    Jason Nygaard, a reporter for The Federal Times, said:
    "We believe the Federation is meeting with Imperial dignities behind closed doors. The nature of these meetings isn't clear, but we have noted unusual ship movements around the historic Cambridge space port."
    Cambridge, once of the few ancient Earth cities preserved in its historic form, is notably free from surveillance. It has been associated with many remarkable events in its long history.

  • Galactic News: Weekly Conflict Report

    2017-01-24

    This report presents the latest data on conflict among the galaxy's minor factions.
    Here are the latest factions to experience a civil war:
    Kokary Holdings
    HIP 5712 State Corp.
    Green Party of HIP 103138
    Union of Wolf 359 Labour
    Potriti Gold Mafia
    AG+21 1754 Citizen Party
    Chet Crimson Society
    Chicoana Silver Travel Corp.
    Villae Cartel
    Gold Travel Ltd
    Civil wars occur when minor factions compete for control of major assets such as starports. When a faction is involved in a civil war, the standard of living, development level and security level in the system it controls are temporarily reduced. Combat activities can bring a civil war to an end.
    Here are the latest factions to experience war:
    Limapa Blue State Commodities
    Kokary Liberals
    Vanayequi Independents
    Chamunda Crimson Gang
    Kini Drug Empire
    Junga Patron's Principles
    Purungurawn Purple Society
    Zugen Incorporated
    Labour of Geras
    Mother Gaia
    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: Laksmii Jet Power Industries Operation Thwarted

    2017-01-24

    Authorities in the Parun system have reported that the Laksmii Jet Power Industries plot against the Independents of Parun has been foiled. The operation centred on smuggling various items into Underwood Port so Imperial agents could use it to conduct guerrilla attacks against the Independents of Parun, the system's controlling faction.
    After learning of the plot, the Independents of Parun placed bounties on Laksmii Jet Power Industries ships operating in the Parun system. The strategy resulted in the destruction of hundreds of Laksmii Jet Power Industries vessels, severely undermining the organisation's plan.
    A spokesperson for the Independents of Parun thanked those who supported the operation.
    Pilots who contributed to the initiative can now collect their rewards from Underwood Port in the Parun system.

  • Community Goal: Sirius Corp. to Address Unknown-Artefact Issue

    2017-01-24

    It is widely understood that Unknown Artefacts have the ability to extract materials from their immediate environment as part of a complex self-repair process. Unfortunately, this can have disastrous effects on starships and other forms of machinery.
    Perhaps the worst affected by this phenomena have been the galaxy's starports, many of which have had to suspend services as a result of Unknown Artefact-related disruption. The high prices offered for Unknown Artefacts on the black market means many starports have been flooded with the mysterious objects. And although meta-alloys can be used to counter Unknown Artefact-related interference, the scarcity of the material means this potential salve has had little impact.
    But a recent announcement from the Sirius Corporation indicates that the company intends to tackle the issue by funding a major new research and development project. The purpose of the project is to make starports and other outposts more resistant to Unknown Artefact-related interference through the application of specific microresources.
    In support of this programme, the Sirius Corporation has placed an open order for unknown fragments, untypical shield scans and aberrant shield pattern analysis, and promised to reward pilots who deliver these materials to Cormack Hub in the Procyon system.
    The campaign begins on the 19th of January 3303 and will run for two weeks. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.

  • Galactic News: Independent Scientists Comment on Sightings

    2017-01-24

    Professor Ishmael Palin, independent scientist and leading authority on xeno-biological research, has added his voice to the debate over sightings of mysterious spacecraft.
    In a statement, Professor Palin said:
    "I have no wish to be alarmist, and I can understand why the galactic superpowers have issued a somewhat noncommittal response. But suggesting that these craft may be of human origin, or the product of a hoax, rather stretches plausibility."
    "To my mind, there is a clear visual connection between these mysterious vessels, the shipwrecks found in HIP 17862 and the Pleiades, the Unknown Artefacts and the Unknown Probes. And I believe we can draw only one conclusion: we are sharing the galaxy with an intelligent non-human species. We therefore have an obligation to discover as much about this species, and its intentions, as possible."
    Independent engineer Ram Tah, who has been leading research into the Synuefe ruins, also commented:
    "I share Professor Palin's view that these reports are of great significance. But attempts to communicate with these vessels have proved fruitless, as have efforts to discern their point of origin. We must learn more about these ships and whoever – or whatever – is piloting them."
