Things aren't looking good. The Federal Navy is trying to fight a war on two fronts, and right now, it's losing. The President has ordered the Navy to provide more firepower to the Gold Advanced Partners so that they can oust the rebels once and for all! Unfortunately, it doesn't look like they're going to get here fast enough to stop the rebels from fortifying their position.
That's where you come in! Every combat bond you earn on behalf of the Federation in Banki will help weaken the rebels' position and increase the amount of credits the Gold Advanced Partners are permitted to spend from the federal war chest! Help the people of Banki in their hour of need, and prevent the deployment of Capital Ships to this sector.
This far from civilisation establishing a reliable supply line can prove to be problematic. That's why the Explorers' Association, in conjunction with Universal Cartographics, are offering to pay premium on all high quality metals brought to Naddoddur Terminal. Once collected, the raw materials will be processed for use as key components aboard the Explorers' Association's newest Ocellus Exploration Station.
