Galactic News: Explorers Urged to be Cautious

26 AUG 3302

In his keynote speech at a recent conference, Karl Devene, head of the Federal Astrocartography Department, warned would-be explorers of the dangers of venturing into the void:

"While there are some very well-organised expeditions, many are poorly prepared and have no goals beyond pursuing ridiculous myths echoing back from the edge of inhabited space. It is dangerous and irresponsible to venture into uncharted areas without proper discipline."

"What we need is sound astrocartographic data – not a bunch of amateurs traipsing all over the place and making a complete mess of the whole situation."

"I will be making deputations to various authorities to curtail these activities and leave exploration in the hands of the professionals."

"If humanity finds itself in a first-contact position, do we really want some grubby, ill-prepared spacer to be our envoy? I think not."

Galactic News: Weekly Conflict Report

26 AUG 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:

LP 64-194 One

LHS 5072 Industries

Kakas Flag

Nuenoch allied

Ross 692 Law Party

Confederation of Sui Xing

Nezhenses Gold Posse

People's Party of Bolon Tzu

Tabaldak Gold Cartel

Monarchy of LHS 3117

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:

Angelic Church of Messi

HIP 57352 Free

Blood Brothers from Alrai

Traditional Borme Defence Party

HR 826 Empire League

Warra Confederacy

Urd Confederation

The Fuel Rats Mischief

Union of Malloc Independents

Parhua Purple Major Corp.

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.
