Freelance Report: Unknown Probe Transmission Decrypted by Canonn

20 AUG 3302

The Canonn Interstellar Research Group has discovered, recorded and translated a tight-beam transmission from an Unknown Probe directed at Merope 5c.

Research into the Probes has so far been hindered by their scarcity, but with the increasing number of Probes being found, transmission analysis efforts have ramped up, leading to successful decryption. The transmission was found to contain blocks of octal numbers describing planetary data such as radius, surface temperature, gravity and atmospheric composition.

The nature of the 'receiver' on Merope 5c is now under investigation.

Galactic News: Assassination Attempt on Patreus Thwarted

20 AUG 3302

Recent reports indicate that an attempt was made on the life of Admiral Denton Patreus as he delivered a speech at Mackenzie Relay in the Cemiess system. The Imperial Internal Security Service confirmed that it apprehended three individuals carrying firearms who attempted to approach the admiral's podium.

Following the incident, Admiral Patreus appeared slightly shaken but said: "I will never submit to terror. These individuals will be brought to justice."

Subsequent reports identified the culprits as belonging to the organisation Emperor's Dawn, but it is rumoured that the dissidents were bankrolled and supported by a second party.

"Emperor's Dawn was smashed – it's history," said a researcher for the Imperial Citizen. "Someone else was behind this – someone with a major grudge against Patreus."

Galactic News: Weekly Expansion Report

20 AUG 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:

Lundji Major Corporation

Earls of LHS 283

Byel Tan Jet United Corp.

Canary Mining Corporation

Nidarijedi Empire Party

Traditional Velliep Justice Party

Ch'anjie Netcoms Commodities

Gabri Labour

Wolf 1414 Nobles

Tomani Blue State Co

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:

New Wolf 248 Independents

Chinicollo League

Paletes Order

Social Mombawet Revolutionary Party

Confederacy of Mandubii

Nisgayo for Equality

United LHS 1101 for Equality

Vetta Bureau

Official Huano Regulatory State

Negidals Co

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.
