As the galaxy reels from the revelation that the Thargoids have returned to human space, reports have been received that a number of independent pilots have discovered huge Thargoid structures in the Pleiades Sector OS-U c2-7, Col 285 Sector CV-Y d57, Aries Dark Region DB-X d1-63, HIP 19026, and HIP 14909 systems.
Initial reports indicate that the structures are many hundreds of metres in diameter, and consist of a number of organic-shaped elements surrounding a central edifice. There is a clear visual relationship between the structures and the Thargoid vessels sighted in the Pleiades star cluster.
Even more remarkable are reports that the structures encompass large subsurface complexes, accessed via the central edifice. Drone-like machines have also been seen roving the sites.
Professor Ishmael Palin, who played a central role in identifying the so-called Unknown Ships as Thargoid, commented on the discovery:
“This is a remarkable development, and one that raises many questions. What is the purpose of these structures? Are there others out there? And what about the drones? Are they being controlled remotely, or are they autonomous?”
“With each new discovery, we revise our perception of humanity and its place within the cosmos.”

This report presents the latest data on the security status of the galaxy’s minor factions.
Here are the latest factions to experience a lockdown:
Ngaliba Blue Camorra
Potriti Gold Mafia
Independents of Tau Ceti
Green Party of Lung
Baraswar Crimson Vision Ltd
Quince Jet Family
When a faction experiences a lockdown, the security rating of the system it controls temporarily increases and the system’s wealth temporarily decreases. Bounty hunting activity can shorten the lockdown period.
Here are the latest factions to experience civil unrest:
Green Party of LFT 926
Independents of LHS 3262
Quaaybuwala Empire League
Silver Creative Network
Ither Purple Brotherhood
Quince Creative Holdings
LDS 413 Partners
HIP 43880 Gold Dynamic Inc
La Te Ti Purple Electronics Corp
Civil unrest is the result of illegal activity. When a faction is affected by civil unrest, the standard of living in the system it controls temporarily decreases, as does the system’s wealth. Combat missions and activities can bring civil unrest to an end.
