Galactic News: Weekly Expansion Report

08 APR 3303

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:

Parhul Silver Electronics Hldgs

Allied Kui Xenab Regulatory State

Betel Free

League of Ross 1015

Defence Force of LHS 1122

Gliese 9106 Partners

Zhu Vedani Blue Transport Dev

New Rutujil People's Party

Haeduwong Systems

NLTT 8084 Natural Services

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:

Eranin Peoples Party

Zugen Incorporated

Bodb Dearg Order

Confederation of Dahan

Peng Dung Jet Creative Network

Cegreeth Citizens' Forum

Bureau of Tetrian Liberty Party

Jaques

Eta Horologii Gold Vision PLC

HIP 117865 Empire Pact

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: Message Received from Col 70 Sector

08 APR 3303

A weak signal from the Col 70 Sector has been detected by listening posts in both Federal and Imperial space.

The message is incomplete, but it appears to pertain to some kind of rally point. Meanwhile, Federal and Imperial intelligence services have confirmed that thousands of covert and coded messages have recently been transmitted in the vicinity of the Col 70 Sector.

"Something is going on out there," said an unidentified member of the Imperial intelligence community. "We think it could be...her."

A bounty has been issued for Commanders Salomé, Tsu Annabelle Singh and Raan Corsen, but with all three fugitives still at large, the Empire has increased the bounties to five million for Salomé and two million apiece for Singh and Corsen. An Imperial spokesperson reiterated that pilots should not attempt to communicate with these individuals, and should shoot on sight.

Imperial intelligence services have also placed a bounty on one Commander Yuri Nakamura, referred to as 'Conformist Oboe XX' in an intelligence briefing given to the media. A two- million-credit bounty has been placed on Commander Nakamura.
