Galactic News: Federation Issues Rebuttal

25 JUN 3302

Admiral Maxton Price of the Federal Navy has rejected claims that Farragut Battle Cruisers stationed in Merope have made unprovoked attacks on independent pilots operating in the area.

In a statement, Admiral Price argued that the allegations were baseless, and that the Federation had not initiated any conflict:

"It is true that Federal vessels have exchanged fire with independent pilots, but these exchanges were not instigated by the Federation, and any claims to the contrary are false."

Admiral Price was asked to respond to calls from Dr Arcanonn of the Canonn Interstellar Research Group for a public inquiry into the Federal presence in Merope. He responded:

"The presence of Federal ships in Merope is entirely legitimate. If our ships are fired upon, they will respond in kind, but I can assure you that the Federation does not have a military agenda in Merope."

Galactic News: Weekly Expansion Report

25 JUN 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:

Gliese 58 Inc

Varangian Syndicate

Chontaiko Purple Central Prtnrs

Values Party of 16 Persei

LTT 1798 Incorporated

Parana United Commodities

Dedalo Corp. Interstellar

Independent Kongi League

League of Byeri First

Krivisci Partners

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:

EG Union

Magn Allied Interstellar

Social Shotep Worker's Party

Narasimha Silver Raiders

Bureau of Ross 209

Green Party of Pataheimr

United 6 Andromedae Democrats

People's Blati Coalition

Pixel Bandits Security Force

Liberals of Wolf 871

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.
