  • Galactic News: Federal Capital Ship Destroyed by Thargoids

    Over the past few months, several reports have surfaced of Federal convoys coming under fire in the Maia system. While circumstantial evidence strongly suggested Thargoid involvement, the Federation declined to comment, saying only that the matter was “under investigation”.

    But fresh reports indicate that another attack, resulting in the loss of a Farragut-class Battlecruiser and a number of other vessels, has recently taken place. In a galaxy-wide announcement, the Federation confirmed that the attack was perpetrated by Thargoid Interceptor-class vessels, as corroborated by those who survived the assault.

    Chief of Federal Security Admiral Aden Tanner issued the following statement:

    “Since we cannot communicate with the Thargoids, and cannot therefore determine the motive for this attack, it cannot be considered an act of war in the conventional sense. Nevertheless, I can confirm that the Thargoids are now considered an enemy of the Federation.”

    Admiral Tanner’s statement was swiftly followed by a public address from Federal President Zachary Hudson, speaking from the White House on Mars.

    “Like many others, I hoped that the Thargoids would prove to be peaceful. Today I am forced to concede that my optimism was misplaced. What I say now, I say to every citizen of the Federation: Action will be taken.”

    “I have given Admiral Tanner total authority over this matter, and extended to him the full resources of the Federal Navy. I have every confidence that he will address this threat to the Federation.”

  • Community Goal: The Battle for Ho Hsi

    Recent reports indicate that conflict has erupted in the Ho Hsi system between Ho Hsi Jet Comms Limited and the Freedom Party of Ho Hsi. System security forces were caught off guard by the violence, which began without warning and has escalated rapidly since then.

    Both sides have issued calls for aid, appealing to independent combat pilots for support. Commanders who participate in the conflict will be generously rewarded by their chosen faction.

    A representative of system security forces issued the following statement:

    “It would be irresponsible of us to encourage independent pilots to join this fight, but if the galactic community can bring this conflict to a swift end, they will have our gratitude.”

    The two factions have set out week-long operations to take control of the system, which will begin on the 14th of September 3303.

  • Galactic News: Chapterhouse Campaign Concludes

    A spokesperson for the Kamadhenu Chapterhouse of Inquisition has announced that its plan to establish a series of starports between Colonia and the core systems has received the wholehearted support of the galactic community.

    Hundreds of pilots took to their ships to deliver construction materials to Shajn Market over the course of the three-week campaign, allowing the Chapterhouse to achieve its ambitious goals.

    As the campaign drew to a close, a spokesperson for the Chapterhouse released a statement:

    “Thanks to the hard work of the galaxy’s independent pilots, construction of the first starport is almost complete, work on the second is well underway and construction of the third will begin soon.”

    “We are immeasurably grateful to those who supported this initiative, and we look forward to a future of increased travel and trade between Colonia and the core.”

    Pilots who contributed to the campaign can now collect their rewards from Shajn Market in the Kamadhenu system.

  • Galactic News: Weekly Economic Report

    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:

    Official Darkates Freedom Party

    Laedla and Co

    Liberty Party of Zeessze

    Union of Wolf 359 Labour

    Coquim Industry

    Opila Ltd

    Kini Drug Empire

    LHS 3479 Interstellar

    Crimson State Group

    Brani Federal Holdings

    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:

    Quator Ring

    Nationalists of Aulin

    Morgor Crimson Pirates

    Alliance of HIP 13269

    Sauraratec Industries

    38 Lyncis Comms Network

    Hehe Camorra

    Luyten 347-14 Prison Colony

    Revolutionary LP 1-52 Labour

    United Kini Coalition

    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

    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:

    Jaques

    HIP 80700 Jet Central PLC

    HIP 47058 Central Corp.

    Dhak Union Party

    Yemaki Dynasty

    Workers of Damontae Republic Party

    Lemana Drug Empire

    Natural Mehit Liberty Party

    Washiri United

    Liberals of Coyotani

    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:

    Ngakwites Empire Consulate

    Amahu Labour

    Shongbon Comms Systems

    Yhele Empire Party

    New Rutujil People's Party

    Mikir Comms Corp.

    HIP 14676 Coordinated

    Hez Pef Jet Transport Company

    United HIP 64498 Progressive Party

    Bletii Inc

    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.
