The Militia for Independent Research along with their partners, Wayfarer Industries have succeeded in their pledge to make the 49 Arietis system a hub for privately funded and co-operative studies into alien research. As one of the closest systems to the Pleiades Sector, without Federal or Imperial presence, the once lawless and poorly patrolled system has seen an increase in security formed by the new government.  War broke out last week in zones across the system including main starport Gaiman Dock, home to the 49 Arietis Gold Council headquarters who have been in control of the sector for some time.

The poorly maintained Gold Council defence force were quickly routed by combat vessels belonging to both Wayfarer Industries and the MIR but reports suggest that many ships bearing the 8th Dragon insignia were also present.

Citizens of Shepherd Orbital in the Jardovici system will rise tomorrow to find themselves under the administration of a new government.

A dictatorial regime originally based in the nearby system of Munfayl, the Black Birds Consilium wasted little time in securing assets in Jardovici over one standard year ago, including Cori Survey and Guerrero Prospect.  Seeing little opposition from the system’s then government, the party’s influence on local politics quickly escalated until the arrival of yet another foreign faction, the Guardians of Tranquility.

Keen to form a mutually beneficial relationship between the two parties, the Guardians were quoted as agreeing t...

After a long and drawn out battle in the HIP 80243 system, the Eta Draconis Gold Vision Company stand victorious over the HIP 80243 Republic Party. An important station essential to the system’s agricultural and tourist industry has fallen under the control of the invaders thanks to the joint efforts of the Flying Tigers and 8th Dragon Squadron. Despite much resistance from the locals, who themselves employed a special ops team known as the Elite Secret Service to assist them, failed to defend Yegorov Terminal efficiently leading to a complete abandonment of posts by Republic Party officials early this morning. Administration of the station will now be overseen by Flying Tiger handlers, Gold Vision Company and its President, Vidar Vondell. The President assured the population that ‘this is the beginning of a better life for all who have made HIP 80243 their home...
