5a85a1c81b13ca19ca41c90aUtopia Initiative Concludes As the campaign drew to a close, Pranav Antal released the following statement:
“Our thanks go to those who supported this campaign, which will help us safeguard the Sim-Archive for at least another century. But while the Archive is of singular importance, it does not represent the limit of our ambitions. It is my hope that we might one day be able to digitise the human consciousness, thereby transcending our physical selves.”
Pilots who contributed to the initiative can now collect their rewards from Chargaff Orbital in the Airman Di system.]]>

5a85a1361b13ca3edb048d1cProactive or Reactive? Gianna Tachibana, an Imperial senator based in the Achenar system, offered the following assessment to The Imperial Herald:
“The Pleiades is at risk of becoming a no-go zone, accessible only to the most courageous Commanders. The formation of militias of independent pilots has unquestionably had an impact, as has the advantage afforded by Aegis’s ongoing research. But one cannot escape the feeling that humanity is being reactive, rather than proactive.”
“What is needed is a comprehensive military strategy. The time for a coordinated response is now.”
Meanwhile, authorities in a number of systems have reported that sales of Thargoid-themed novelties, including toys and clothing, have skyrocketed in recent weeks. The manufacture of such merchandise has been condemned by many as insensitive.]]>

5a859fd09dd29d74a968382eThe Bulwark Project Federal Shadow President Felicia Winters shed further light on the initiative, which has been christened the Bulwark Project:
"As the Thargoids' aggression escalates, it's essential that we find ways to minimise casualties while continuing to protect ourselves. Aegis is doing commendable work, but it needn't be our only line of defence."
Imperial commentators have criticised the initiative, however, drawing attention to long-standing conventions against the development of artificial intelligence. Shadow President Winters was quick to dismiss such concerns, saying:
"The purpose of the Bulwark Project is to investigate alternative defence strategies, not to develop machine intelligence."
The operation has received financial support from the Momoirent Central and Co, which has placed an open order for various commodities for use in the campaign.
The campaign begins on the 15th of February 3304 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.]]>

5a7c664e9dbb3f4c053f9044Preserving the Sim-Archive Pranav Antal, leader of Utopia, elaborated on the nature of the project:
"The Sim-Archive is Utopia's primary achievement – a vast digital repository containing the collective wisdom of all our departed brothers and sisters. But, like any system, the Archive requires constant maintenance, as a failure in the system could result in the loss of irreplaceable knowledge. We have therefore placed an open order for various commodities for use in this delicate work."
The Official Airman Di Front has been authorised to oversee the initiative, and has pledged to reward pilots who deliver the requested goods to Chargaff Orbital in the Airman Di system.
The campaign begins on the 8th of February 3304 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.]]>

5a7c6689b2837d70e811b97dRam Tah's Last Hurrah In a statement, Ram Tah said:
"Public interest in the Guardians may have waned, but I believe there is more to learn. Only through thorough investigation and analysis can we hope to fully understand the Guardians, their technology and their relationships to other species. This knowledge could be of great importance to humanity."
The campaign has received a financial boost from Meene General Industries, which has promised to reward pilots who deliver artefacts from Guardian sites to Felice Dock in the Meene system.

5a7c2524b2837d57693651eeGalactic Leaders Renew Appeals for Aid In response, Federal President Zachary Hudson and Emperor Arissa Lavigny-Duval have issued fresh appeals for aid, imploring independent pilots to support relief efforts.
In her announcement, Arissa Lavigny-Duval said:
“Relief coordinators are doing everything they can, but without the support of the galactic community, the restoration of these stations will take a long time. I therefore implore independent pilots to deliver essential commodities to the affected starports, and to evacuate civilians.”
The Emperor also confirmed that Aegis is investigating reports that the Thargoids are moving towards the core systems.]]>

5a73324ae0c5d750f8229b51Alliance Initiative Alliance official Torvan Dast issued the following statement:
“The remoteness of our California Nebula outposts makes reaching them a potentially dangerous proposition. This new starport will bridge the gap between the settlements and the galactic core, and lessen the risk to ships journeying to and from the California Nebula.”
The initiative is being overseen by the LP 128-32 Corporation, which has placed an open order for various raw materials for use in the construction. The organisation has also placed a kill order on all ships on its wanted list, to ensure that those contributing material to the campaign can do so safely.
The campaign begins on the 1st of February 3304 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.]]>

5a71bb0545e8214e4a4f1682Galactic Community Comes to Aid of Dove Enigma The would-be saboteurs tried to destabilise the vessel by flooding its black market with Thargoid Sensors, which have the capacity to damage ships and starports. Fortunately, the assault was countered by a group of pilots who delivered large quantities of meta-alloys to the ailing ship, thereby stabilising it.
The Dove Enigma was specially commissioned by the Colonia Council as a commemorative gesture for the pilot Commander DoveEnigma13, and as such is of personal significance to many. The ship is also the destination of the Enigma Expedition, a collective mission currently charting a course to the Colonia system.
An engineer stationed at the Dove Enigma gave the following statement:
“We’ve received more than enough meta-alloys to stabilise the ship, and the surplus will allow us to safeguard against any further sabotage attempts. We’re hugely grateful to the pilots who came to our aid. Their efforts are a testament the compassion of the galactic community.”]]>
