  • Galactic News: Galactic Leaders Address Thargoid Discovery

    2017-06-19

    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

    2017-06-19

    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
    Ross 754 Labour
    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.

  • Galactic News: Weekly Expansion Report

    2017-06-19

    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:
    Leschanatya Future
    LTT 3981 Purple Legal Limited
    Earls of Primpo
    Sokaram Citizens of Tradition
    Revolutionary Eluskapu Partnership
    Purple Universal Co
    League of Wikmeang Party
    Kherthaje Collective
    HIP 68936 Partners
    Bactrimpox Gold Society
    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:
    Crimson State Group
    HIP 13269 Silver Drug Empire
    Dominion of Skadjalini
    League of HIP 3509 Flag
    HIP 111755 Citizens of Tradition
    Movement for Pienate Labour
    Bodharail Empire Party
    CD-54 9671 Empire Group
    Revolutionary Abazates Democrats
    Flesk Transport Organisation
    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: The Thargoids have Returned

    2017-06-19

    Over the past few days, media streams have been abuzz with news that the so-called Unknown Ships are in fact Thargoid vessels, as many had speculated. The Federal Times, having spent several days confirming sources and authenticating reports, has now published an in-depth account of the events that led to the revelation.
    It is understood that Professor Ishmael Palin, a leading authority on xenobiological research, determined the vessels' origin by comparing data from the Unknown Ships with older Thargoid samples. Palin's experiments resulted in conclusive proof that the Unknown Ships were Thargoid.
    A short time later, Palin's data was seized by Federal agents, who attempted to convey it to a Federal research facility. But in a shocking turn of events, the ship carrying the data was attacked en route to its destination. There is strong evidence to suggest the attack was executed by Thargoid vessels.
    The incapacitation of the Federal vessel resulted in the information entering the public domain. But the cryptic nature of the data meant that The Federal Times was compelled to conduct further research before publishing its report.
    In its story, The Federal Times also posited that the barnacles may be of Thargoid origin, given their relationship with the Thargoid ships. But it stopped short of suggesting a link between the Thargoids and the Unknown Probes and Artefacts, which many also believe to be nonhuman objects.
    Meanwhile, the public mood was best summarised by Kelvin Masters, a freelance journalist, who contributed the following to the Rewired news feed:
    "Look at the history books. Every time we've met the Thargoids, there's bloodshed. We need to prepare for the worst. I mean, they've already attacked human ships! What kind of contingencies do the superpowers have in place? And what do we know about the Thargoids' capabilities? What kind of weapons do they have? What kind of defences? And why did the Federation take Palin's data? Were they trying to keep it quiet? These questions need to be answered!"
    The leaders of the galaxy's three superpowers are expected to make statements shortly.

  • Community Goal: Knights of Karma Appeal

    2017-06-19

    Over the past year, the Qa'wakana system has become a focal point for the Knights of Karma, a rapidly expanding organisation that has attracted support from across the galaxy. Now the group has announced plans to establish a new mining facility among the rings of Qa'wakana 6.
    A spokesman for the organisation released a statement regarding the proposal.
    "Plans for the facility are underway, but we will need the support of the galactic community if the project is to succeed. We are therefore offering generous remuneration to pilots who deliver construction materials to Carpini Terminal in the Qa'wakana system."
    The spokesperson added that the organisation had placed a kill order on all ships on its wanted list.
    "The construction of this new facility is sure to aggravate those who want to preserve the status quo, and we are expecting resistance. So we're asking combat pilots to help us protect innocent traders from persecution."
    The campaign begins on the 8th of June 3303 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.

  • Galactic News: Conflict in Jotunheim Draws to a Close

    2017-06-19

    Authorities in Jotunheim have announced that the operation to drive the Autocracy of Jotunheim from the system has succeeded.
    The organisation entered the system in order to bring it under Imperial control, but the Revolutionary Jotunheim Resistance was swiftly mobilised to repel the incursion.
    Both factions issued calls for support, and hundreds of independent combat pilots responded, but ultimately the Revolutionary Jotunheim Resistance emerged victorious. The Autocracy of Jotunheim has now withdrawn from the system.
    The success of the resistance operation was due in no small part to the support of Jasmina Halsey. Scores of pilots responded to her request for commodities, which were then donated to Revolutionary Jotunheim Resistance.
    As the conflict drew to a close, representatives of the Revolutionary Jotunheim Resistance and the Yum Kamcabi Purple Life Industry thanked those who supported their operations.
    Pilots who participated in the conflict can now collect their rewards from Big Harry's Monkey Hangout in the Jotunheim system.
