Galactic News: MetaDrive Audit Complete

19 NOV 3302

The independent audit of defunct technology company MetaDrive Inc. has now reached an end and, other than a few minor items, the acquisition of all remaining assets has been completed.

One such item is the Imperial Eagle of the company's late chairman Femi Dakarai, which was owned by MetaDrive. In a strange turn of events, the ship was stolen by former MetaDrive employee Raan Corsen, who disappeared shortly after the audit began.

A number of files relating to Dakarai's affairs are also believed to be missing. A junior member of the audit team reported that a series of so-called 'exodus documents' could not be located. The employee was unceremoniously removed from the audit team shortly afterwards.

A spokesperson for BigSix, the auditor, provided a statement:

"The audit of MetaDrive is now complete, and contrary to previous misleading reports, we have all the documentation we need. It transpires the Eagle spacecraft stolen by Raan Corsen crashed somewhere in the Alioth system while fleeing security forces. The vessel was fully insured, so BigSix is not unduly concerned by its loss."

Galactic News: Weekly Expansion Report

19 NOV 3302

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:

Official Darkates Freedom

Sol Workers' Party

Labour of Geras

Modgud Commodities

Ambivas Power Partners

HIP 114530 Guardians

Partnership of Nitikaba

Betel Free

Sui Xenates Indie Union

Jaques

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:

Wolf 359 Blue Travel Commodities

Labour of Ethgreze

Independents of Mildeptu

The Pilots Federation

Zugen Incorporated

LP 811-17 Gold Energy Partners

HR 8170 Brotherhood

Yhele Guardians of Tradition

HIP 28987 Empire Pact

Codorain Network

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.
