Galactic News: Malfunctioning Starports Restored with Meta-Alloys

20 MAY 3302

Recent reports indicate that a number of starports forced to suspend services due to Unknown Artefact-related interference have been restored to normality through the application of meta-alloys. Ackerman Market in Eravate, Gabriel Enterprise in Harma, Weyn Dock in 64 Arietis and Onnes Gateway in LFT 37 are all now reported to be fully operational.

This development – a testament to the hard work of the pilots who have delivered meta-alloys to the affected stations – will no doubt bring hope to those still affected by the technological plague.

The starports currently closed as a result of Unknown Artefact-related interference are:

Lave Station, Lave

Ising Dock, 109 Piscium

Fozard Dock, HIP 19934

Irens Dock, Manite

von Bellingshausen Port, Almar

Haack Gateway, Halbangaay

Gurragchaa Gateway, Warkushanui

Korolyov Hub, Arawere

Lobachevsky Outpost, Pic Tok

Carter Port, Rhea

Meanwhile, the following starports continue to experience technical issues:

Alexander Freeport, HIP 18843

Bloch Vision, Loperada

Love Ring, Evejitaka

Robigo Mines, Robigo

Saunders's Dive, Wolf 1301

Skvortsov Orbital, 63 G. Capricorni

Kooi Gateway, HIP 93377

Jaques Station, Gliese 1269

Freelance Report: Attempt to Sabotage Jaques Station Thwarted

20 MAY 3302

Three individuals carrying pamphlets identifying them as members of 'The Hands of the Architects' have been apprehended at Jaques Station. Starport personnel discovered the individuals attempting to modify the station's frame shift drive.

A station spokesperson said: "The individuals are apparently members of a cult that arose shortly after Jasmina Halsey first claimed to have encountered super-intelligent, non-human life. Materials confiscated from the individuals indicate that they hoped to force a mis-jump during Jaques's forthcoming journey to Beagle Point. Apparently they thought this would give them an opportunity to meet Halsey's 'architects'."

The would-be saboteurs are currently being held in custody at Jaques Station while starport personnel discuss possible extradition with nearby systems.

Freelance Report: Diamond Frogs Reportedly Attacking Traders

20 MAY 3302

A Radio Skvortsov commentator recently reported that extremists from the Eravate system were attacking traders running liquor and other legal narcotics to Skvortsov Orbital.

The traders, who hail from all sides of the galaxy, were invited to the system by the Diamond Frogs to supply a party celebrating the return of the Distant Worlds Expedition. But recent reports indicate that the Eravate extremists are not the only ones preying on the traders.

According to these new reports, some Diamond Frog ships are also participating in the piracy. Although there is no evidence that the Diamond Frogs' leaders or prominent Commanders are orchestrating or participating in these attacks, numerous pilots have reported being interdicted by hostile Diamond Frog vessels.

One disgruntled Commander claimed that he had been interdicted multiple times by a number of different Diamond Frog ships. The pilot said: "The dingbats keep pulling me out of supercruise, and it's starting to get annoying! Don't get me wrong, the Diamond Frogs seem like good people, and I'll continue to deliver booze for those brave explorers, but they really need to get their house in order and put a stop to these shenanigans. It's casting a shadow on the whole endeavour."

Galactic News: Weekly Conflict Report

20 MAY 3302

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

Here are the latest factions to experience a civil war:

Di Kun Crimson Public Systems

Pemotenil Mafia

Pemotenil Labour

San Saona Monarchy

Liberty Party of LP 751-1

Labour of Convoumia

MCC 378 Republic Party

LP 932-12 Dynamic Inc

Ch'in Yang Blue Partnership

Ch'in Yang Travel Exchange

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:

Kured Empire Assembly

Future of Misisture

Dark Echo

Angeli Imperial Enterprises

Gold Vision Commodities

Black Omega

NLTT 6667 Republic Party

LFT 1448 Independents

Ross 370 Federal Holdings

Confederation of Quikudi

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.
