As the number of newly discovered Thargoid structures continues to grow, reports from the Pleiades Sector IR-W D1-55 indicate that the Oracle, an Ocellus starport, has relocated to the system in order to study the region’s Thargoid structure.
Governor Ahmed, the starport’s principal administrator, released the following statement:
“The Oracle has long been a hub for scientific research, and in recent years many of our researchers have started focusing on Unknown Artefacts and Probes. The Thargoid structures are ripe for further study, and I therefore believe it is essential that we have a dedicated research centre at one of these sites.”
“We need to know more about the Thargoids – what they want, why they’re here and ideally how to communicate with them. My hope is that the Oracle will help us answer some of these questions.”
The Oracle is expected to arrive in the Pleiades Sector IR-W D1-55 within the next few days.

This report presents the latest data on conflict among the galaxy’s minor factions.

AG+21 1754 Citizen Party
Allied FK5 2550 Autocracy
Liaedin Electronics PLC
Zhu Veddi State Limited
Mob of HIP 7106
Progressive Party of Ross 210
Civil wars occur when minor factions compete for control of major assets such as starports. When a faction is involved in a civil war, the standard of living, development level and security level in the system it controls are temporarily reduced. Combat activities can bring a civil war to an end.
Here are the latest factions to experience war:
HIP 22145 Gold Mafia
Crimson State Group
Co-operative of Yiman
HIP 96289 Blue Major Inc
Khakum Prison Colony
Independents of Jura Lungs
Democrats of BD-02 4304

Wars occur when a minor faction invades a star system controlled by another minor faction. For the duration of the war, the standard of living, wealth level and security level in the disputed system are reduced. Combat activity between the two warring factions determines the outcome of the conflict. If neither faction succeeds in dominating the other, the war ends in a ceasefire.
