Galactic News: Superpowers Respond to Strange Sightings

13 JAN 3303

Following several sightings of mysterious spacecraft, the leaders of the galaxy's three superpowers have released official statements.

Emperor Arissa Lavigny-Duval, currently undertaking a tour of Imperial systems, exhibited reservation:

"To surmise that these encounters constitute proof of the existence of non-human intelligence would be rash in the extreme. We cannot rule out the possibility that these ships could be experimental human spacecraft, or even the product of an intricate hoax. I urge all Imperial citizens to remain calm, and not to leap to conclusions."

Federal President Zachary Hudson, meanwhile, struck a characteristically strident tone:

"I have reviewed the footage submitted by the galactic community. Granted, the evidence is not conclusive. But tell me this: would you rather prepare for an attack that may not come, or be met by an attack you did not prepare for? We know nothing about the true nature or purpose of these vessels. It would be in our best interest to prepare for any eventuality."

By contrast, Alliance Prime Minister Edmund Mahon was diplomatic:

"Like the Emperor, I believe it would be premature to conclude that these are non-human spacecraft. But it is clear to me that these encounters warrant further investigation. We must gather more evidence and keep an open mind. Knowledge, not ignorance. Proof, not speculation. That is the way forward."

Galactic News: Weekly Conflict Report

13 JAN 3303

This report presents the latest data on conflict among the galaxy's minor factions.

Here are the latest factions to experience a civil war:

HIP 5712 State Corp.

Wolf 359 Blue Travel Commodities

Union of Wolf 359 Labour

Potriti Gold Mafia

AG+21 1754 Citizen Party

Eranin Peoples Party

Chet Crimson Society

Marquis du HIP 110867

Villae Cartel

Luyten's Star Co

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:

Ross 754 Labour

Cemiess Commodities

Labour of Ethgreze

Kokary Liberals

United LHS 3479 Green Party

Chamunda Crimson Gang

The Pilots Federation

Zugen Incorporated

39 Tauri Interstellar

Revolutionary Heheng Future

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.
