Freelance Report: Pilot Breaks Eight-Hour Sagittarius A* Barrier

26 JAN 3302

Buckyball champion Commander Alot has broken the eight-hour barrier for a trip from Sol to Sagittarius A* in his ship, Rhonda the Anaconda. Having failed in his first attempt to set a sub-eight hour record by just six seconds, Commander Alot ultimately succeeded in completing the 25,900 light year journey in 7 hours, 56 minutes and 41 seconds. He announced his success in characteristically matter-of-fact style at 2.00 pm on the 24th of January: "That's. More. Like it."

No stranger to the Sagittarius A* Buckyball challenge, Commander Alot has made the trip no fewer seven times. He has more or less dominated the number-one slot since first wresting it away from the original record holder, Commander Anuranium, in April 3301, when he completed the run in 11 hours and 46 minutes.

As tributes from fellow Buckyball pilots poured in, the 'fastest pilot in the galaxy' confirmed he would be taking a well-earned break from the cockpit, although he said he hoped to catch up with the Distant Worlds expedition later in the year.

Galactic News: Weekly Security Digest

26 JAN 3302

In this weekly report, the latest GalNet data is assembled to present ten minor factions experiencing civil unrest or lockdown in their systems.

Here are 10 of the 1,128 minor factions in lockdown:

Progressive Party of Nawait

Binjamingi Allied Ltd

Ining Industry

Union of Contien Progressive Party

Ngaru Services

Neperimpox Jet Fortune Ind

Sietae Federal Corp.

Igal Empire Assembly

Fretensis Patronage

HIP 1885 Patron's Principles

Lockdowns increase the security rating for a system but also have a negative effect on the system's wealth. Increased bounty hunting activity can shorten the lockdown period.

Here are 10 of the 1,104 minor factions experiencing civil unrest:

Pontae Camorra

Laifan Co

Taramaliwa Allied Commodities

LP 466-235 Fortune Corporation

Iota Horologii Ltd

Wayan Energy Network

Democrats of Masans

Manbatz Systems

Uniting Noegin

United Nedos League

Civil unrest is caused by illegal activity within the system as well completing contracts from more nefarious sources. The wealth rating and standard of living will suffer when a system contains civil unrest. Combat missions and activities can be utilised to end civil unrest.
