Обеспечьте защиту мероприятий по новому полету Golconda
Combat pilots are required in the Upaniklis system to assist the Golconda in resuming its voyage.
The ancient generation ship, which originated from Earth in the 22nd century, has been retrofitted by the Artificers Clan into a functional modern vessel. The majority of its former population have decided to leave the outpost Forester's Choice and return to their traditional nomadic lifestyle.
Captain Jonathon Forester, leader of the Golconda Union, announced:
"In 3305 the galactic community provided us with the chance to end our original journey, so it will be fitting if they can help us start a new chapter among the stars."
Local security forces warned that pirates may attempt to hijack incoming shipments or take control of the Golconda itself. As a defensive measure, Upaniklis Vision Incorporated has offered bounties on all wanted ships in the system. Pilots are asked to deliver bounty vouchers to Fozard Port.
According to the Federal Diplomatic Corp, these events do not violate the legislation that protects isolated societies from cultural contamination. It added: "Partnership status with the Federation has been extended to the Golconda and continues to apply to Forester's Choice outpost."
The campaign begins on the 2nd of June 3308 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.

Fight for the Kumo Crew
The Kumo Crew syndicate has engaged in open warfare on the pirate insurrectionists gathered in the HIP 10792 system.
A recent coup attempt led by Arch-Corsair Vidar Trask, formerly one of the senior members of the Kumo Council, has failed. His forces were unable to eliminate Delaine and take control of the criminal organisation.
The rebels' vessels have concentrated in HIP 10792. Trask is commanding a coalition of loyalists, independent pirate gangs and as-yet unidentified mercenaries, collectively calling themselves the Trask Death Corsairs.
Despite suffering from some visible wounds as a result of the assassination attempt, Archon Delaine broadcast this message:
"Trask has betrayed all of us, and for that I want him crushed! I will pay well to wipe out every single traitor who fights in his name."
The Kumo Council faction will reward all independent pilots supporting its operation against the Trask Death Corsairs in the HIP 10792 system, which is being orchestrated from Crimson Exchange.
Should the initiative reach Tier 1, the following paint jobs will be made available to qualifying contributors:
Top 75% - Viper Mk III Pirate Faction Orange Top 50% - Vulture Pirate Faction Purple Top 25% - Fer-de-Lance Pirate Faction Red
These rewards are cumulative, and higher contributor bands will receive the paint jobs from lower bands.
The faction has set out a week-long operation to take control of the system, which will begin on the 19th of May 3308.

Seltene Waren für Rackham-Festivität beschaffen
The entrepreneur Zachary Rackham has asked for deliveries of rare items to Edmondson High in the Beta Hydri system.
At a press conference on the planet Homeland, Mr Rackham announced:
"It's not every day that a humble businessman like me celebrates becoming a trillionaire! So I'm holding a week-long party in the upper floors of Rackham's Spire. To make sure my guests are entertained, I'll need to keep my stocks of Apa Vietti from Upaniklis, Gerasian Gueuze Beer from Geras, Pantaa Prayer Sticks from George Pantazis, Uszaian Tree Grubs from Uszaa and Anduliga Fire Works from Anduliga high throughout the entire week."
"I've also arranged for pilots to receive temporary permits to the Beta Hydri system, which will last until the 2nd of June. Anything to make life easier for my trader friends!"
Mr Rackham faced criticism for hosting a celebration at a time when so many have died in recent Thargoid attacks. In response, he claimed he had "a duty to boost public morale by filling the news with happier stories".
Financial reporter Bryanna Blanco commented in The Federal Times:
"The guest list for this party includes politicians, media magnates, publicity gurus, and many others who would prove useful if you were running a presidential campaign. Should Rackham get enough of them on his side – presumably by sparing no expense on their comfort and entertainment – I think he'll officially set his sights on the Federation's top job."
The campaign will run until the 19th May 3308. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.

Deliver meta-alloys to support Professor Palin's research project
Commanders have been asked to collect meta-alloys from Thargoid barnacles as part of a wider xenological study.
The research project is being orchestrated by Professor Ishmael Palin, one of the most prominent experts in Thargoid technology:
"With escalating Thargoid activity in the core systems, it is increasingly important that we learn as much as possible about this species. Only through scientific study can we better comprehend their biomechanical nature and, where possible, enhance our defences against it."
"The initial phase requires fresh samples of meta-alloys, the unique material used in the construction of Thargoid vessels. These can be harvested from barnacles that the Thargoids have seeded on selected planets."
Pilots can deliver meta-alloys to the starport James Sneddon in the Morten-Marte system. As part of the Federal Reclamation Co's support for this initiative, the station's market offers a high price for any Thargoid tissue samples.
In addition to credit payments for all those delivering meta-alloys, class 4A, 5A and 6A corrosion resistant cargo racks will be available to selected contributors. The 5A and 6A versions have been exclusively manufactured for this project, and are not commercially available at present.
Professor Palin stated that possessing these cargo racks will be of great benefit in the project's planned second phase, scheduled to occur in the next few weeks.
The cargo racks will be awarded as follows:
Top 75%: 4A Corrosion Resistant Cargo Rack (capacity 16) Top 50%: 5A Corrosion Resistant Cargo Rack (capacity 32) Top 10%: 6A Corrosion Resistant Cargo Rack (capacity 64)
The campaign will run until the 12th May 3308. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.

Sirius Corp Humanitarian Campaign for Didio
Sirius Corporation has organised humanitarian support for the Didio system, which is under attack by Thargoid vessels.
The Alliance Defence Fleet is currently combating the Thargoid threat in Didio, under the command of Admiral Rachel Ziegler.
Admiral Nikolas Glass, who acts as a liaison between the megacorp and the Alliance Defence Force, provided details of the campaign:
"With the strategic defence pact yet to be ratified, the Council of Admirals has not approved the deployment of Sirius Navy ships as part of an Allied fleet. However, Sirius Corporation is keen to show its commitment to helping the Alliance, and will do so by supplying vital resources to the Didio system's besieged population."
"Large quantities of basic medicines, evacuation shelters and food cartridges are urgently required. These can be delivered to Chariot of Rhea in the Leesti system, from where they will be delivered to Didio in military convoys."
A joint operation between the superpowers is currently underway in Didio, Novas and Sosong to counter recent Thargoid invasions. This is to buy time for Salvation's anti-xeno superweapons to be constructed.
The delivery campaign begins on the 28th April and will run until the 5th May 3308. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.
