Galactic News: Independent Scientists Comment on Sightings

16 JAN 3303

Professor Ishmael Palin, independent scientist and leading authority on xeno-biological research, has added his voice to the debate over sightings of mysterious spacecraft.

In a statement, Professor Palin said:

"I have no wish to be alarmist, and I can understand why the galactic superpowers have issued a somewhat noncommittal response. But suggesting that these craft may be of human origin, or the product of a hoax, rather stretches plausibility."

"To my mind, there is a clear visual connection between these mysterious vessels, the shipwrecks found in HIP 17862 and the Pleiades, the Unknown Artefacts and the Unknown Probes. And I believe we can draw only one conclusion: we are sharing the galaxy with an intelligent non-human species. We therefore have an obligation to discover as much about this species, and its intentions, as possible."

Independent engineer Ram Tah, who has been leading research into the Synuefe ruins, also commented:

"I share Professor Palin's view that these reports are of great significance. But attempts to communicate with these vessels have proved fruitless, as have efforts to discern their point of origin. We must learn more about these ships and whoever – or whatever – is piloting them."

Galactic News: Weekly Economic Report

16 JAN 3303

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:

Limapa Blue State Commodities

Uru Federal Interstellar

Union of Wolf 359 Labour

Coalition of Ngaliba

Lords of Ngaliba

Cemiess Commodities

Orrere Ring

Eravate Network

Eravate Life Services

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:

HIP 111755 Gold Cartel

Iapodes Purple Dynamic Holdings

NLTT 6667 Republic Party

Green Party of CD-54 4840

Surya PLC

Crimson Transport Ltd

Future of Udegoci

Carpaka Central Industry

HIP 1419 Empire Consulate

Union of Kappa Phoenicis Labour

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.
