[Breaking News] Is “The Hand of God” protecting The Pilots Federation ?

dans Freelance reports/Pilots Federation Par

Just this once, we will talk about the very discreet Operation Burn Elites.

 

Our regular readers knows that we’re following closely the operations actualy en cours that aims to uncover the so-called Club, this bunch of self claimed “true elites” grand bourgeois who shadowy manipulate the superpowers and the mega-corporations to achieve an agenda that we don’t know anything about.

 

Until now, we had talk mostly about Operation Sirius Business, Singularity Movement, Protest Against Wreaken, and finaly Deus Ex Machina Initiative.

 

Deus Ex Machina Initiative was created to be a frame of resources sharing. In this frame, Singularity Movement and Operation Burn Elites was deployed, and with success in the case of Singularity Movement.

Operation Burn Elites stayed discreet and hadn’t respond to our repeatedly demand of informations

We were, therefore, confined to examining, with a magnifying glass, the play of influences in systems under the control of The Pilots Federation, and those in which the faction is present.

 

We genuily thought that Operation Burn Elites was struggling to start because since its launch on July 16, 3303, no noticeable changes has been observed by our teams examining faction’s influence levels in these systems.

 

Yesterday the Operation Burn Elites spokesperson contacted us to bring to our attention some disturbing points:

 

“Since the start of the operation on 16 July, Cmdrs returning from a long exploration began work on influences according to a well-established and planned roadmap. They have sold nearly 400 million cr of exploration data in systems where The Pilots Federation is present in order to destabilize its influence. Our main goal is to get The Pilots Federation out of all these systems, we have to go through the war before we can put them into retreat, and to do that, we have to play with the influences of others prior. This is what these explorers did by selling their data to specific factions in each of the target systems, at a rate of 5 to 10 million per day each, rotating daily until they no longer have anything for sale. Nearly 400 million were sold and we expected this first phase to have a significant impact. This phase lasted a little more than a week. We didn’t see any change. We know that the system of updating the display of these changes of state can sometimes show some weaknesses, so this hasn’t particularly focused our attention and we have moved to the second phase of our operations. This time, more than forty pilots were involved in various activities, always following our roadmap. To date, we have seen no significant change regarding the level of influences of our targets, which is simply impossible!”

 

He showed us that the curves of influence of the systems where The Pilots Federation is present or in position of control are flat and haven’t moved more than one tenth of a percent since July 7, when the Pilots Federation extended to Eravate and some other surrounding systems, following the community goal that ended on 29 June 3303. The influences of the other factions are fluctuating as usual, which is really weird !

It isn’t impossible that it’d just the access to the data that could be blocked, giving us this impression of total immobility, or it’d just something else that could totally escaped us.

 

If this is what the Club has found best to do to preserve The Pilots Federation, it can be said that it didn’t act there in the discretion that typically characterizes it.

These manipulations are indeed very crude and totally awkward.

It puts us in a position to assert without too much risk that, contrary to what some have said, The Pilots Federation is indeed a piece of choice in the strategy put in place by the Club to achieve its objectives.

 

As always, The Onionhead disclaims any responsibility for possible maltreatment of words and verbs during the writing of this article.

Would the Club be on the verge of getting out of the shadows?

dans Alliance/Empire/Federation/Freelance reports/Palin/Thargoids Par

First of all, we apologize. This article was write as fast as it needed and the following is probably not in a perfect english. We’ll do our best to fix that as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

 

For several weeks now, the newsroom of The Onionhead have been paying close attention to the events in Pleiades Sector.

If you are one of our regular readers, you certainly have noticed a few articles that mentioned a few changes that have gone unnoticed but of great importance, at least as far as the finality that we can assume taking into account the elements in our possession, which we have brought to your attention.

If this is not the case, we advise you to read the following articles:

 

Thargoids Have Returned !

The lie behind the community goal

Breaking News : The Oracle of Pleiades Sector

[Latest News] Outbreaks, Sirius, Pleiades Sector

[Breaking News] Presence of feds weakened in Maia

 

First, some facts

 

On June 17, 3303, we were told that the Thargoids were back, which is probably true, if we believe what we were able to discover later.

It is the way in which this return has been announced to us that is somewhat problematic.

You can read all of this in the article Thargoids have returned but we will still take a few minutes to explain all this.

A distress signal was received by a few Cmdrs pointing to the HIP 17044 system. In this system was discovered the still smoldering wrecks of a federal fleet consisting of Farraguts cruisers, Federal Corvettes and their usual escorts. Not a ship able to fly, no survivors. The traces on these ships suggested that the attack had been carried out with totally unknown weapons. A communication relay was found on the site, totally intact, and emitting in loop: The Thargoids have returned. However, a careful examination of the wreckage of one of the cruisers made it possible to catch an encrypted message. Once decrypted, this message evoked the attack by saying that it had been led by an unkwown ship. Let us note that some time ago, Professor Palin had indicated that what we named until then “unknown ships” were in fact Thargoids ships. We can not doubt that the chain of command on board these cruisers had this information in mind when it said it was being attacked by unknown ships. Except to have lived reclusive out of all information, the hierarchy onboard knew that what we named until now “unknown ships” were Thargoids vessels. So why did they talk about unknown ships, said about their assailants? The newsroom of The Onionhead, for his part, thinks that the convoy has not probably been attacked by Thargoids and that we are led to believe it. And it seems that it works. As a result of these discoveries, no one questioned the official version delivered by the Pravnet announcing that the Thargoids had attacked and totally destroyed this convoy. Note also that this convoy carried the fruit of the larceny of a federal commando, data stolen from Pr Palin shortly before.

Meanwhile, Pleiades Resources Enterprise continued its expansion into Pleiades Sector on behalf of federal interests.

 

It was also during this period that the last message conveyed by Cmdr Salomé was found, her last will in a few sorts. In this message, she confirmed the logs of Teorge that Raan Corsen, Tsu Annabelle Singh and Yuri Nakamura had been able to transmit April 29, 3303, logs registered by Rebecca Weston. Both of them said that a very powerful organization in the shadows is still manipulating the mega-corporation and the superpowers in order to achieve an agenda whose purpose is totally unknown to us.

 

Serious business begin.

 

July 3, 3303 began Operation Sirius Business responding to Salomé’s posthumous appeal by attacking Sirius Corporation.
The next day, it was Deus Ex Machina Initiative (see the article Free Palin!).
Deus Ex Machina Initiative is not an operation in itself but includes a number of ongoing or future operations designed to push the organization acting in the shadow evoked by Cmdrs Weston and Salomé out of it. 
Deus Ex Machina Initiative followed the various elements made public in our columns.
Several operations are therefore carried out jointly and in a coordinated manner:
Singularity Movement, demanding that the Federals leave Pleiades Sector and lift the house arrest weighing on Pr Palin (see Oresrians, Singularity Movement, Procyon Blockade, and Free Palin!), And Operation Burn Elites (see article [Last News] Outbreaks, Sirius, Pleiades Sector), taking up the same claims as those announced by Singularity Movement, associated with the lifting of permits preventing us from accessing Col 70 Sector (see article Wreaken Wrecked), Barnard’s Loop, Regor Sector and the HIP 22460 system.

 

Operation Sirius Business made a lot of noise because it had been conducted quite efficiently.
Singularity Movement, on the other hand, did not have the same human and material resources, so the beginnings were a bit more difficult. A first victory had closely followed the creation of the movement when its fighters had been able to defeat the cruiser Farragut posted in Maia. But that was not enough to speak of decisive victory.
This victory occurred few days ago and today, Pleiades Resources Enterprise no longer controls the Maia system at all.

 

Visibility is the one thing they cannot abide.

 

Between early July and the end of the same month, we witnessed a change in the deployment strategy of the Club.
Seeing that his main play in Pleiades Sector, Pleiades Resources Enterprise, was going to be in trouble, and not wishing the Federation to give too much support to the corporation, a new element was deployed in this strategic sector: The Oracle.
The Oracle is a mega-ship controlled by a mysterious corporation named I.P.S.A.L. Project. Two other equally unknown and equally independent corporations also have their offices in the mega-ship: Janus Incorporated and Rational Logistics.
We immediately discussed this in our columns (see The Oracle of Pleiades Sector), indicating that as the Club’s maneuvers through the Federation through Pleiades Resources Enterprise were now revealed in full light , he had no other recourse but to deploy new pieces on the chessboard, hitherto unknown. This was confirmed with the very recent arrival of Abroin Universal PLC on the scene.

 

All these corporations share the same traits.
They are new, unknown to the general public and are displayed as being independent.
However, just follow the money to realize that this is not the case.
I.P.S.A.L. Project, Janus Incorporated and Rational Logistics all offer missions to few systems in Pleiades Sector controlled by both the Federation and the Empire, while the recent community goal launched by Abroin Universal PLC clearly shows its allegiance to the Alliance.

All this is only smoke screens hiding other smoke screens intended to hide an agenda that this organization is determined to keep secret at all costs, leaving for it to kill with impunity.

 

Aegis.

 

And here today, our beloved Pravnet announces the creation of an organization, Aegis, whose aim would be purely scientific ? Don’t forget that on the old Earth Lore, Aegis was the shield of Zeus, with the Medusa head placed on its center and Medusa petrified anyone who watch her.
Today, the Club shows us that it has decided to hide in full light!

But we are not fooled.

When Pravnet writes: But not everyone believes such initiatives represent the best way to proceed, with a growing number of voices calling for an inter-superpower initiative that consolidates existing knowledge and resources. We read: many operations aimed at destabilizing our efforts to realize our agenda are currently taking place, and this must stop.
When she goes on: While I applaud recent efforts to learn more about the Thargoids, we can achieve far more by working together. We read: Bravos boys, you are much more effective than we thought and we underestimated you, we will not make this mistake again, and this time we will oppose you a united front.

 

Today we can say without taking too much risk of being mistaken that the Club is made up of eminent members of the Federation, the Empire, the Alliance and mega-corporations (Sirius and Wreaken Construction & Mining, or Bank of Zaonce, for the most obvious).
We can also say that this Club has an agenda to implement in which you and I are only pawns that can be eliminated at leisure if it becomes embarrassing and if the opportunity occures.
Finally, we have every reason to doubt the goodwill of this Club with regard to the 6 trillion souls that populate our galaxy, until this agenda will be known by all, subject to the approval of all, without any fear whether rejected or amended.
There is a threat to humanity at present, and this threat is certainly not that of an invasion of the Thargoids, but rather the lack of transparency and the will to power of some rich and powerful people.

Who knows what they will be able to do?

 

This article is subject to be updated during the days followed, so stay tuned.

[Breaking News] Presence of feds weakened in Maia

dans Freelance reports/independants/Palin/Thargoids Par

Singularity Movement scored at Maia.

Pleiades Resources Enterprise is still present in the system, but no federal entity has been in position of control in the system since that night.

Tonight, the Singularity Movement achieved a major victory in their mission to rid the Maia system of Federal control.

Two days ago, the fighting raged on between the Ant Hill Mob and the Pleiades Resources Enterprise as they tried to desperately hold onto their last remaining base of power in the system. Only the outpost, Maia Point, located on Maia A 2 b planet, was still under their control and they did not intend to let it slip through their fingers as easily. The feds therefore concentrated all the forces present in the system to defend this outpost.

That’s when the general coordinator launched a call to arms: “A win today, means no Federal Base in Maia tomorrow!”

The Deus Ex Machina Initiative received the call as well. Although occupied around Shinrarta Dezhra, pilots participating in the Initiative’s “Operation: Burn Elites” were dispatched in support of the troops engaged by Singularity Movement in this decisive battle.

Fierce fighting raged the whole day and night, making many Federal casualties. However the feds finally gave up the game in the end.

Today, there is no longer any base under control of the Federation in Maia!

Who would have bet a few weeks ago that such a thing was possible?

A superpower was forced to bend it’s knees in front of a group of independent pilots who aren’t, for the most part, seasoned fighters.

Previously on July 20, Federal President Zachary Hudson promised (mostly to those who  wanted to believe it) that the Federation was going to protect humanity from the “threat of an aggressive non-human species“. However, it has now been proven that they don’t have the ability to keep control of the smallest stones floating in a near system suburb of the Core Worlds.

A month earlier, pilots received a distress call from a Federal convoy  that was apparently attacked and entirely destroyed by Thargoids. This convoy consisted of the Federal thieves that stole  Professor Palin’s data. However, there is evidence that seems contradict this report. Even though serious doubts still hang over the subject today, this had resulted in the consolidation of the position of the federal President in the Congress. A majority had, then, supported the issue of increasing military budgets. Yet, sighted observers of federal political life said that this unity was fragile.

There is no doubt that it will be even more so when Congress will hold the President accountable for the use of force he has made in the recent weeks of increasing the Federation’s military expenditure. This will please opposition leader Felicia Winters, as well as former President Jasmina Halsey’s supporters in Congress.

However, we must not forget that all this certainly please much more our dear Club. Its members probably rubs their hands while I write these words. Hudson is so power hungry that he is easy to manipulate. But his warfare policy no longer deluse us, and the Club will eventually make him fall into disgrace. We can even assume that the pawns needed for the Club to pursuing his agenda without Hudson are already in place in Pleiades Sector (see http://the-onionhead.ovh/2017/07/21/latest-news-outbreaks-sirius-pleiades-sector-2/ and http://the-onionhead.ovh/2017/07/14/breaking-news-the-oracle-of-pleiades-sector/).

 

[Edit] : The news being what it is, a flow that runs at full speed, we have published a new article that follows up on this one.

[Latest News] Outbreaks, Sirius, Pleiades Sector

dans Alliance/Freelance reports/independants/Palin/sirius Par

Our dear Pravnet adored isn’t very chatty lately. The little it agreed to tell us about our small inhabited areas concerned mainly the political and economic state of the factions. That is very little.

And yet, there is so much to say.

 

Since the Club’s omni media doesn’t deign to do its job correctly, it is us, simple pilots, who will do it in its place.

 

So, the latest news : 

 

  • A wave of outbreak (pandemia?).
  • A first reaction from Sirius Corporation’s forces to the victorious assault on Takurua by Operation Sirius Business.
  • A new operation joins Deus Ex Machina Initiative.
  • Tension rising one more step between Empire and Federation.
  • A community operation proposed by an “independent” faction in the Pleiades (it seems that everyone wants to be there at the moment, to believe that this sector will soon become the holiday resort of all the VIPs of the Galaxy in the next weeks ).

 

A wave of outbreak

 

According to our colleague The Galactic Bugle, an epidemic of unprecedented epidemic and famine is currently taking place in the Core’s Worlds. And globalization compels, it also affects Colonia.

He reports about 80 systems affected at the time of the discovery a week ago, and this number has dropped by half during the past week, down to about 40 systems. The phenomenon seems to have been sudden.

The outbreaks doesn’t seem to become a pandemia.

It is astonishing to see that in these days, and regarding the enormous resources our superpowers have, such outbreaks can still take on such a magnitude.

And while we see military spending growing day after day, famine is rampant in many systems. If this continues, we’ll can even speak of a humanitarian catastrophe!

They build cruisers, outposts and infrastructures in the Pleiades or California Nebula, secretly launch the Dynasty project, an highly expensive project, which is supposed to save us in case of Thargoids invasion, and during that time we are starving!

We weren’t consulted when these decisions were made, but it is on our backs that they are build.

After that, we’ll be found some people again to say that all this is for our better good. Fortunately, there is still some common sense in this Galaxy.

 

Sirius Corporation strike back.

I mentioned a little communication concern with the staff who manage the organization and access of the coordination platform of Operation Sirius Business. But all this is behind us. DJTruthsayer assured us that we were welcomed on board and we’ll be given a Press access as soon as we renew the request.

Until we have this access and therefore a little more precise information, we will resume our follow-up work.

Today, the spokesman for Operation Sirius Business reported a reaction from Sirius Corporation in Takurua.

As we pointed out in our columns, Operation Sirius Business had succeeded in causing Sirius Corporation to retire from the system.

The mega-corp has taken over in hand, it seems, and has counterattacked by declaring war on Almagest Freedom Party, probably with the aim of regaining some influence in Takurua. A call to arms was immediately launched to assist the Almagest Freedom Party.

Considering things from the strict strategic point of view, it seems that Sirius Corporation also hopes to disperse the troops of Operation Sirius Business in order to slow down its progression to Avik. To say it right away, it will not be easy for the mega-corp, even it have more assets than Operation Sirius Business. Its influence in Avik hit the ground, literally.

 

Operation Burn Elites join Deus Ex Machina Initiative.

On the Pleiades side, things don’t look very good for Singularity Movement. Their support for The Ant Hill Mob seems to be bogged down and Pleiades Resources Enterprise regained ground later this week. This doesn’t seem to stop pilots engaged in the fight since the trend observed today is going down. You can join the coordination platform of Singurarity Mouvement by clicking here.

 

The battleground has also been on the side of the Federation of Pilots since Operation Burn Elites was launched last weekend.

We tried to contact a spokesperson of the operation, not without difficulty. He didn’t wish to say more, inviting us to refer to the text announcing the launch of the operation.

It will not be easy, here either, to do our job properly, but we’ll do our best.

 

Tension rising one more step between Empire and Federation.

One of our readers had the good idea of informing us of quite disturbing facts within the Empire. The federal troops seem to have led a rather effective coordinated attack aimed at the blockade of many imperial systems.

We were told the fact in the Cubeo system in particular. And this seems to be confirmed in other systems.

A call to arms has been launched recently to ask the federal pilots to lend a hand to the federal troops engaged in this struggle.

We don’t know much more yet, but we will keep you informed as soon as we know more.

 

Abroin Universal PLC lance une opération communautaire.

Yesterday, Abroin Universal Plc launched a new community goal to build an outpost in Pleiades Sector for the study of Thargoids.

This faction, hitherto unknown, is, it seems, independent and corporative in character. When this news came, everyone on the newsroom immediately thought of The Oracle and its trio of “independent” companies.

To read the text of this news, it seems this time that this “independence” is directed towards the Alliance.

The subject undoubtedly deserves further investigation.

AM I Sirius ?

dans Freelance reports/sirius Par

The Onionhead planned to inform you about the status of the Sirius Corporation’s dominion today because one of our reporters saw last night some interesting changes in the systems under control of the mega-corp: Sirius Corporation is at retreat state.

 

So I joined the Operation Sirius Business’s voice server to learn more.

I must confess that the welcome was rather cold, and the word is weak. To begin with, it took me several hours too much time to get an administrator to answer my access request, but in the end, the type of access he gave me wouldn’t give me the necessary information for writting decent articles on the subject. In addition, any additional request from me to obtain this access has remained unanswered. After several hours After waiting in vain, I finaly left this server.

 

Meanwhile, I was chatting on one of the busiest social networks in the community to get a little more detail from DJTruthsayer, the Cmdr behind Operation Sirius Business, leader of Sovereignty.

 

Here’s what he told me : So Op:SB is a joint operation between 27 pilot groups, moving against sirius corp. We are all in this for our own reasons, but creating content for our members is the primary motivator.

 

We’re organised fairly simply, with each pilots group providing a leader who can join in the planning of the operation, meaning every group gets a voice. In practice our BGS experts are calling the shots, we just go and do what they tell us to!

 

We have knocked Sirius Corporation out of control in Takurua and are now in the process of forcing them to retreat from Avik. Our Long term plan is to take sirius corporation out of control of every system they are in, followed by forcing a retreat where possible.

 

What a corporate-speak, as you can see.

 

To the question: Do you think that the operation Protest Against Wreaken or those engaged in the framework of Deus Ex Machina Initiative have affinities with yours in terms of goals?

 

He replied, These groups are free to join us and we will be happy to welcome them. Our main goal is to provide fun for our members.

 

Did you read that: to offer fun to its members!

 

And I skip on the simple fact that DJTruthsayer seems totally unaware that things are happening outside of what he is organizing. It would be laughable if lives were not at stake.

 

This disorderly and disparate horde totally lacking discretion does not seem to be concerned by the fact that all current policies in the Milky Way are led by an shadowy group with enormous power, even they claims the contrary. They do not appear to be more concerned with the people they kill during their operation since it is for the fun.

But it isn’t surprising, after all, because during the short time I got to their voice server, I could see the prominent presence of the SDC, including the notorious Besieger, the one who killed Cmdr Salome on 29th of April. He seems to have recovered from the destruction of his ship shortly after. And to say that the spokesman of the Operation Sirius Business announces publicly that the operation was decided after the text Salomé’s Requiem was made public.

No matter the dead, the show must go on, and with a lot of glitter if possible!

 

Meanwhile, the communication services of the mega-corp remain silent on this attack against it. Only the local press talks about it. Possibly even amusing Sirius Corporation. We can even assume without too much risk of being mistaken that it even suits the affairs of the puppetmaster.

 

By our side, on the other hand, it is out of the question to continue to cover such a masquerade since we are refused to do our job properly, we prefer to linger longer on more serious subjects where we will be free to do our job.

Breaking News: Operation Burn Elites

dans Community/Empire/Federation/Freelance reports/independants/Palin/Pilots Federation Par

While the Shadow Cartel sends us his Oracle in the Pleiades, Deus Ex Machina Initiative sees his ranks grow.

 

The Operation Burn Elites, this is its name, was released yesterday evening discreetly and immediately joined the Initiative.

Its objective is nothing less than besieging the Federation of the Pilots at Shinrarta Dezhra.

The number of claims to be met for ending the seat include the cancellation of a few permit-locking in the following sector: Col 70, Barnard ‘Loop, Regor, and the permit-lock that block the access of HIP 24460, the end of the house arrest of Pr Palin by the feds, – taking into account the demand of the Singularity Movement, also part of the Initiative -, the withdrawal of the federal and imperial troops, – this last point is new -,  in the whole Pleiades Sector, including Maia, and the end of any interference from Superpowers in Pleiades Sector.

 

The newsroom tried to find out more by contacting the Cmdr who had posted the public announcement of the operation to tell us more but he didn’t even respond while we write these lines.

 

The Pilots Federation besieged in Shinrarta Dezhra, nothing but that!

You have to be damned reckless, or you can be really self-assured, to get involved in such an operation.

However, it must be said that they chose the right moment.

 

Indeed, since the 4th of July, the social and political situation in the Shinrarta system wasn’t very good for the Pilots Federation. Many protest movements broke out and spread like wildfire in all places where the faction is present in the system.

Taking advantage of the opportunity, The Dark Wheel, until then rather calm and discreet, has redoubled efforts to develop its commercial network. And it did well because today, the latter is in an economic boom.

The misfortune of some is the happiness of others.

 

The Dark Wheel.

They’re usually arousing as much fascination, fear and admiration. To be still there after several centuries of turmoil is enough to create this kind of feeling, actually.

 

So clever, the one who can says what all this will lead to, but one thing is sure, it surely will not help the shenanigans of our dear puppetmaster.

Or not, who knows.

Summer Great Expedition

dans Community/Freelance reports/independants Par

Since the technology of our FSD drives has improved, exploration of deep space has been greatly changed. The time of the pioneers is over. The Galaxy has narrowed and previously difficult points of access are now within the reach of the majority, with a long-term effort and some risk-taking.

 

Our dear leaders stay warm in the promiscuity offered by this small inhabited bubble so-called the Core Worlds. It seems to suit them, even if it’s true that they feel cramped out there, just see their policies explicitly expansionist. They have the nose in the handlebars of their scams, their manipulations, and some even hate flying in space. They therefore imagine that what they experience is great, beautiful, and the power they exercise or think they exert on our lives gives them the jubilation that one can feel during the loss of lucidity that usually accompanies psychotic access . One cannot blame them, the exercise of power demands to muffle the cries of conscience and the empathy that characterizes our species. This has always been the case, and this is even more true today, while human history has never known such extensive dominions.

 

The puppets that are our leaders have always expressed their contempt for the community of independent explorers, and for good reason, it reminds them of how far back they lack of objectivity and the height of the vacuity of their ambitions.

 

That is why we are going to give the floor to this community today, and in particular to an expedition en cours: the Summer Great Expedition, launched to join Beagle Point in the footsteps of the pioneers of the Distant Worlds expedition.

Its organizer, Cmdr Kazahnn Drahnn, kindly answered our questions.

 

The Onionhead / Piaf: Hello Cmdr Kazahnn Drahnn. Can you introduce yourself in a few words to our readers?

 

Kazahnn Drahnn: Hello to all, so I introduce myself, I am the Cmdr Kazahnn Drahnn of the LOSP. I am in charge of an Anaconda, the “Venator”, which I optimized thanks to the engineers in grade 5 for exploration.

My crew is composed of thirty mainly military personnel, even if the ship is not armed, with a scientific team to study any finds.

I recently joined the Magellan division of the LOSP, which allowed me to form the Summer Great Expedition.

 

TOP: How did you come up with such a long expedition? I remind you that the Summer Great Expedition is an expedition to Beagle Point. It’s not the next door.

 

Kazahnn Drahnn: One evening in March 3303 I was in the Pleiades sector with Cmdrs Yuksarr and Kalhaan and we were looking for Cmdr Salomé. After several hours of research in the systems by crossing our data and by informing the various ships of the other factions in search of her, we decided to stop the investigations.

Cmdr Kalhaan returned to Jitabos, and then Yuksarr and I went down a little further down towards 46 Eridani. We were able to discuss our future projects and one of them was common to us. The one to reach Beagle Point.

That’s how the idea of bringing together a small group of explorers to reach Beagle Point came up to me.

 

TOP: How many pilots participate? Are they all seasoned explorers?

 

Kazahnn Drahnn: At present, the Summer Great Expedition has 79 commanders, 46 of whom are fleet A and 33 are fleet B.

Some are seasoned explorers, others are novices. But from now on, as we reached Beagle Point and are en route for our return, I think we can all be qualified as seasoned explorers, if I may. However, everyone, no matter their level at the start of the expedition, learned a lot during the trip. We all stuck together in the tough times, like the day we lost our first SRV in a terrible accident at the first Waypoint in the Eta Carina Nebula. Moreover, for the small anecdote the place of the accident was referenced in the “Galactic Mapping Project” under the name of “Hathor’s Prophecy”, a mixture of the names of the two commanders involved in the catastrophy.

 

TOP: A french-speaking expedition, but I understand that english and german-speaking were also part of the game?

 

Kazahnn Drahnn: At first, the expedition was intended to be exclusively french-speaking, or even reserved exclusively for members of the LOSP. However, after reflection, I decided to open this one to all the members of the french-speaking community in order to make the most of this experience to many on the other side of the galaxy.

Then, by publishing our expedition on the main holonet forum, several english-speaking commanders decided to take part in the tour, and it was with great pleasure that we welcomed them.

Finally, since Cmdr Melbus was bilingual (french and german-speaking), he told the german community that we were going to Beagle Point and that is how we also counted among the germans.

 

TOP : This diversity of communities around the ancient languages of our good old Earth seems to be totally ignored by our dear leaders, indeed. You mentioned a disaster, have you had any losses during the trip?

 

Kazahnn Drahnn: Overall, the whole expedition went well.

But as I mentioned above, our first loss was to be deplored at the first waypoint in the Eta Carina nebula. An accident involving an SRV and an ASP Explorer.

Then we lost the Cmdr Snake (german-speaking) at the waypoint in the Rendezvous Point system, he didn’t negotiated well its descent on the planet and was destroyed instantly.

Then, Cmdr Mist0 crashed during a bad maneuver by looking for geysers or other POIs on a mysterious planet identified in the Galactic Mapping Project under the name of “Heavenly Mists” because it is very dense in mist and possessing a special relief steep, and therefore very dangerous.

The Cmdr Astrix Swayer also lost its Diamondback Explorer due to technical incidents at rehearsals of a massjump.

It is for Fleet A the three losses which we have had to deplore.

For Fleet B, there were also a few casualties. Cmdr Penpenbf was destroyed by a pirate mod when he arrived at Sagittarius A *, unthinkable as far from the bubble but yet it is a reality. He had technical concerns that caused his loss.

 

TOP: This kind of expedition is anything but a health walk, as all too often let the officials of various shores hear. With regard to the two convoys, why split the expedition into two convoys?

 

Kazahnn Drahnn: Splitting the expedition into two parts came from a need of some of us, who come from the Wing Atlantis, to make another trip. Their goal was not to reach Beagle Point unlike us, but we still decided to fly under the same banner at least for the first two waypoints. We segregated the fleet in Hawking’s Gap. Their objective was to carry out a reconnaissance survey of the abandoned bases that can be found in the Hawking’s Gap and the Conflux, while passing by Sagittarius A * and Colonia. This for personal purposes.

 

TOP: You told me, off, that the SGE was close involved in the Galactic Mapping Project? This is a project that we know very well , some of us, amoung our newsroom, have been actively involved. Can you talk to us about that?

 

Kazahnn Drahnn: The expedition is of course a partner of the Galactic Mapping Project. In short, the LOSP has been the ally of the Children of Raxxla for a long time and we have always worked hand in hand regardless of geopolitical contexts. It was obvious to me that we were moving closer to Erimus Kamzel and the Galactic Mapping Project for such an ambitious project.

The idea is to list all the peculiarities that our galaxy can contain in order to improve the navigation map of all the pilots in their future voyages within the Milky Way.

Currently, the expedition has proposed several POIs and three have been retained to enrich the galactic map:

 

 

TOP: Now that you have a communication platform dedicated to french-speaking explorers, you have solid foundations for future projects. Do you already have such projects?

 

Kazahnn Drahnn: Since the Summer Expedition was a great success, we have already started to think about other expeditions / explorations more or less long. But I can not tell you more because they are “work in progress” status.

 

TOP: Thank you so much for spending some of your time, and good flight to all the expedition.

 

Kazahnn Drahnn: I also thank you and good news for your newspaper, which is very much appreciated by my crew and by the crews of the other ships as well.

Breaking News : An independent scientist escapes from death !

dans Federation/Freelance reports/Palin/Thargoids Par

Recently a Community Goal was carried out with the aim of enabling Pleiades Resources Enterprise to build an outpost to serve as an observation post in order to ensure our security against possible Thargoids attacks.

We have reported in our columns that this federal interference is not to the liking of lovers of free science. They demanded the lifting of the house arrest that weighs on Professor Palin in Maia as well as the withdrawal of the federal troops from Pleiades Sector.

To ensure our safety, they say.
In the past, security has often served as a pretext for much interference, or worst.

An incident that happened yesterday contradicts all this beautiful propaganda. It almost cost the life of an independent scientist.

But let’s see what he has to say.

 

TOP: What’s your name?
Cmdr Virgil Cooler King: Virgil Cooler King, of the faction SANCTIS …. Call me Cooler.

TOP: You seem to be shaken up?
Cmdr Virgil Cooler King: Incredible these guys! … Not even armed! … Not a cannon or even a gun on my ASP Explorer! I do not understand?!…

TOP: Keep your calm Cmdr. Tell us what led you to Maia?
Cmdr Virgil Cooler King: Am invited by Palin, at that time I just finished my first delivery of fragments. I saw nothing at the landing. I had not noticed the beast!

TOP: The beast? What are you talking about exactly?
Cmdr Virgil Cooler King: It’s by lifting off! I noticed a cloud of ships above the research center … Then I saw the monster! A Farragut cruiser of the Federation!

TOP: Ah yes, I understand better. Everyone knows that a federal cruiser is posted over the base of Pr Palin. He’s under well guard. What did you do then?

Cmdr Virgil Cooler King: Rather curious by nature, I approached to put an eye on it for a moment, as well as the small devices that whirled around, all was quite normal… Then I turned to the void and started my FSD.

TOP: And then?
Cmdr Virgil Cooler King: This is when the I.A. warned me! We were attacked! I turned and saw the Fed’s cruiser that was also firing at the other small ships around it! I could not tell you who had assaulted who? … Am not armed as I said, and my hull is paper thin!

TOP: Quite curious indeed. You seem to be saying that the chain of command aboard the federal cruiser would have lost their mind? This will give the protesters an additional reason to ask for the lifting of the house arrest on the professor. Okay, and then?

Cmdr Virgil Cooler King: Everything went very fast, I had to flee as fast as possible! Lack of fortune, my FSD triggers no faster than me! And there! 2 shots and … Boom! Just had time to jump into the pod … I was lucky a guy in Cobra came to pick me up and took me back to the research center. Otherwise I would still be dead…

TOP: Wow! It was a close call. Well, and otherwise, what do you think of all this now that you are safe?

Cmdr Virgil Cooler King: What does this ship look like at Palin ?! … Does he protect him or threaten him? … In any case, I threatened no one! All these services I have rendered them! … They have drawn me in the back like a bird, the cowards! … I am disgusted!

One can understand it, which would not be so.
Fly safe, Cmdr, and keep serving science as you do.

Breaking News : The Oracle of Pleiades Sector

dans Federation/Freelance reports/Thargoids Par

Today, our beloved Pravnet gave us a short news.

Apart from the usual reports concerning the political, economic and social condition of our little bubble, the propaganda organ of the Club doesn’t offer us much interesting news.

Thus, it deserved to be mentioned.

 

But it must be confessed that it wasn’t only the scarcity of interesting news that attracted our attention.

Reading this one carefully, several elements seemed strange to us.

 

The name of the station to start. The Oracle. This rather curious name has evoked some texts from the works of the historian Drew Wagar (from p160 to p176). We are currently researching whether this is interesting enough to be developed. If so, this article will be edited accordingly. Nonetheless, it could be totaly irrelevant. [Edit] : It seems that the Oracle mentioned on the Drew Wagar’s work is more a legend than something that was historycaly.

 

Beyond the name, a number of points are quite disturbing to be mentioned.

 

The Oracle is controlled by the I.P.S.A.L Project faction

 

After some research on the holonet, nothing more interesting could be found.

 

I.P.S.A.L Project is a small independent corporation which now controls the Pleiades Sector IR-W d1-55 system. This faction shares this occupation with two other factions: Janus Incorporated and Rational Logistics. Both are independents and are corporations. These 3 factions are not present anywhere else.

 

We find it strange that Pravnet mentions that the Oracle is expected to arrive in the Pleiades Sector IR-W D1-55 within the next few days, although this presence is already listed elsewhere. Someone seems eager to see these 3 factions installed in this system.

 

Would the Club have asked the feds to be more discreet in Pleiades Sector by inviting them to act through small independents corporate factions that no one had heard of so far?

 

Admittedly, Pleiades Resource Enterprise is starting to be a bit too showy.

Breaking News: Operation Sirius Business scores victory against Sirius Corp in Takurua

dans Freelance reports/independants/sirius Par

After eleven days of effort, Operation Sirius Business finally scores against Sirius Corporation.

Sirius Corporation security forces in the system were harassed for 11 days. The fighting was hard, but eventually Sirius Corporation’s influence was at its lowest, giving the Takurua Legion faction the opportunity to claim control of the system.

The spokesman for Operation Sirius Business said:
“We’re very happy with the results of this first offensive. The two-pronged approach of attacking Sirius Corp along with supplying tailored support to their rivals, allowed for a change of power with a minimum of loss in lives and infrastructure.”

Operation Sirius Business is now changing its target and its forces are now moving towards the Avik system.

 

You will not be surprised if we tell you that Sirius Corporation has not yet bothered to speak on the subject.

 

At the same time, the influence of Pleiades Resources Enterprise also seems to be falling in some of the systems that the organization has under its control. It is impossible to say for the moment whether this is the result of a coordinated attack or just the fruit of the usual game of influential movements. We will keep you informed as soon as we have more details.
