Breakthrough in Artefact Research?
After meticulous and sometimes tedious investigation, scientists working under Dr Arcanonn have uncovered that the recently discovered "Unknown Artefacts" may have some basis in human technology.
Audio studies of the objects show that they emit a distorted but audible signal matching the very long-established Earth signalling scheme morse code, through which the artefact broadcasts the identity of the nearest celestial body when released into free space.
Speculation is rife as to what purpose the artefacts have - scanners, navigational aids, or Thargoid homing-beacons. All of which is considered more concerning now that it is understood that the artefacts appear to have knowledge of morse code, and thus potentially other human technologies, embedded within them.
Dr Arcanonn's team have renewed their plea to the Federal Government to release any information they possess about the artefacts in order to assist with the continuing research.

GalNet Weekly Conflict Report
This weekly transmission takes the latest GalNet data and lists some of the systems currently in conflict around the galaxy. (*).
These are 10 of the 11,074 minor factions involved in a civil war:
Labour of Ugrashtrim
Nationals of Erishiko
Beta-1 Tucanae Power Network
Natural FAUST 68 Flag
FAUST 68 Jet Brothers
Nationals of Halai
Bureau of Ross 209
Arth Purple Organisation
21 Draco Republic Party
Civil wars take place between minor factions in the same system over ownership of major assets like starports. During civil wars only combat missions and activities help bring the conflict to a resolution. Security, development level and standard of living indicators all drop for the duration of the civil war.
The following are 10 of the 2655 minor factions at war:
Tau Ceti Crimson Legal Solutions
Sublime Order of van Maanen's Star
Eranin Peoples Party
Asellus Primus Purple Crew
Leaders of Apinayimas
Dragons of LP 764-108
9 Ceti Advanced Organisation
Justice Party of Maridal
LHS 3598 Transport Group
Wars occur when a minor faction invades another star system. For the duration of the conflict standard of living, wealth and security are all severely impacted. Combat missions and activities determine who wins the war. If no winner emerges then the war will end in a ceasefire.
