Freelance Report: First Expedition to Rho Cassiopeiae Confirmed

18 APR 3302

Commander turkwinif, flying an Anaconda specially outfitted for long-distance hyperspace jumps, has become the first pilot to reach Rho Cassiopeiae. The class-F hypergiant star is notable for being visible to the naked eye from Earth, and for being positioned in a particularly hard-to-reach area of what explorers call the Formidine Rift.

Many pilots have previously tried to reach Rho Cassiopeiae, and their lack of success led many to consider the star beyond the reach of current technology. Commander turkwinif reported that reaching the system required careful route planning and the use of numerous FSD fuel injections.

Freelance Report: Fuel Rats Reach Milestone

18 APR 3302

A Fuel Rats public relations official has announced that the collective has now succeeded in rescuing more than 10,000 stranded pilots.

Comprising a widespread network of voluntary search and rescue agents, the Fuel Rats has maintained a success rate of over 95% since its foundation in June 3301. On average, the group saves 36 pilots a day.

"The Fuel Rats is the only collective entirely dedicated to such rescues," said the representative. "For a cooperative based on volunteers, donations and goodwill to reach such a milestone in less than a year is impressive."

"When I look back at our anarchic beginnings, and see this ragtag bunch of misfit explorers expand into this remarkable cooperative, I am humbled."

The representative also explained that the group is planning a memorial service for all those the Fuel Rats failed to save. The service is currently planned for the 5th of May 3302 and is scheduled to run for one week.

Galactic News: Weekly Economic Report

18 APR 3302

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:

Gullici Jet Pirates

Chao Wu Commodities

Unionists of CD-66 2585 0

Nocoma Solutions

Natural HIP 18327 Nationalists

HIP 117706 Purple Netcoms Inc

Angelic Church of Messi

Kelie Silver Major Industries

League of Hrunapori Autocracy

Independent Kiliwatsuki Free

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:

LP 104-2 Silver State Comms

Paucates Gold Brothers

Kaiablingah Blue Raiders

Grovichun Purple Boys

United Epsilon Indi Flag

LTT 8517 Jet Gang

Irukama Labour

Natural Vega Liberty Party

Gridge Life Exchange

Maiki Silver Mafia

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.
