The Empire has entered a state of conflict with the isolationist group Nova Imperium in the Paresa system.
Senator Denton Patreus announced:
“The loyal Imperials of Yupini Limited have engaged the isolationists’ illegal armada. We call upon Imperial auxiliaries to support our allies and destroy the Nova Imperium fleet.”
Imperator Mordanticus, leader of Nova Imperium, has requested the support of the galactic community:
“Nova Imperium’s survival depends upon winning this battle. I urge all those who believe that Hadrian Duval should be the Emperor to support us.”
The two factions have set out week-long campaigns to overcome their foes, which will begin on the 10th of January 3305.

Supply campaigns for the Federal and Imperial navies have concluded successfully, with traders delivering large amounts of military provisions.
The League of Zearla, acting on behalf of the Federal Navy, stated:
“Many thanks to all the pilots who came through for the Federation. You can now collect your rewards at Payson Hub in the Zearla system.”
An announcement was also made by the Sirsir Co, which coordinated a similar supply campaign for the Imperial Navy:
“You have performed a great service for the Empire. Payments have been authorised at Mitchell Hangar in the Sirsir system.”
Marquis Felix Novantico, a retired military strategist, commented:
“Tensions caused by Nova Imperium have triggered much activity of this kind. But for the Federation to do the same suggests concern about a potentially hostile Empire, should Hadrian Duval claim the throne.”

A luxury star yacht belonging to famous actor Consuela Knight has reached its destination with nobody onboard.
The incident was reported by independent newsfeed The Sovereign:
“Consuela Knight’s beautiful ship often attracts admirers when it arrives at a starport. But on this occasion it also brought security forces, since the custom-built private yacht was completely empty.”
“Investigators discovered that the ship was in perfect condition with all escape pods intact. There were signs of recent activity, such as unfinished meals and handheld equipment on the floor. Computer records confirmed the crew's presence until a few minutes before arrival, when all five people – including Ms Knight– simultaneously vanished.”
“Engineering and hyperspace experts have begun analysing data to unravel this mystery. But there is no reason to believe there are any survivors of this phenomenon.”
