A spokesperson for the Sirius Corporation has announced that its appeal for microresources has been enthusiastically received by the galactic community. Hundreds of pilots responded to the corporation's appeal by delivering unknown fragments, untypical shield scans and aberrant shield pattern analysis to Cormack Hub in the Procyon system.
As the campaign drew to a close, Li-Yong Rui, CEO of Sirius Gov, released a statement:
"While irresponsible fortune hunters continue to destabilise the galaxy's starports by selling Unknown Artefacts on the black market, the galaxy's superpowers stand idly by, mired in bureaucracy and paralysed by indecision. Well, we say: no more."
"I will do everything in my power to put an end to the technological plague and restore the galaxy's starports to functionality. The effort to conquer this epidemic starts now."
Pilots who contributed to the initiative can now collect their rewards from Cormack Hub in the Procyon system.

Animosity between the Empire and the Federation has been growing for months, but leaked communications suggest that clandestine negotiations may be taking place between the two superpowers.
Jason Nygaard, a reporter for The Federal Times, said:
"We believe the Federation is meeting with Imperial dignities behind closed doors. The nature of these meetings isn't clear, but we have noted unusual ship movements around the historic Cambridge space port."
Cambridge, once of the few ancient Earth cities preserved in its historic form, is notably free from surveillance. It has been associated with many remarkable events in its long history.

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.
Green Party of HIP 103138
Union of Wolf 359 Labour
Potriti Gold Mafia
AG+21 1754 Citizen Party
Chet Crimson Society
Chicoana Silver Travel Corp.
Gold Travel Ltd
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:
Limapa Blue State Commodities
Chamunda Crimson Gang
Kini Drug Empire
Junga Patron's Principles
Purungurawn Purple Society
Labour of Geras
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.
