XENOARCHAEOLOGICAL MATTERS

Wayfarer Industries, a leading private xenoarchaeological group based in the Pleiades Sector who have made some exceptional progress in the discovery and analysis of alien artifacts over the last ten years, has lashed out at the increased Federal and Imperial scientific teams deployed within the region.

The group, who pride themselves in their vision of professional transparency say that the highly-classified research conducted by both galactic superpowers devalues any meaningful scientific advancement concerning alien civilisations and suggest that their activities could lead to a potentially disastrous outcome. Spokesperson, Raquel Verte was quoted live on Galnet airing the group’s views.

“We have been out there for more than ten years, “she said. “In that time, we have made some of the most important discoveries in our field and have been completely honest in all aspects of our work. Since the discovery of the first artifact, the Imperial and Fed science crews have all but overtaken our outposts and our operations have been repeatedly downplayed, contradicted and even plagiarized by the heavyweights...

JARDOVICI: THE DAWN OF A NEW ERA

Citizens of Shepherd Orbital in the Jardovici system will rise tomorrow to find themselves under the administration of a new government. The recent election results between the Jardovici Justice Party and foreign power, the Black Birds Consilium, have now been fed to all local news networks confirming an overall majority win for the BBC.

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 to make no moves towards control of Jardovici and are rumored to having employed the services of a mercenary group in order to ensure the legislative victory of the BBC in the next election.

Ardelle Kingston, leader of the Justice Party, has rubbished the results with claims that the Black Birds Consilium have been involved ...

SEEDS OF CORRUPTION

In 3301, mercenary group, the 8th Dragon Squadron, settled into Patocuda with the intention of using the system as their base of operations. With much zeal, many local high fliers quickly saw the opportunity to forward their own personal goals, leading to an influx of private financial investors and local corporations seeking to exploit and profit from the system’s new administration.

From shrewd business types to wily politicians, many have jostled to take their place among the many appointed civilian positions required in organizing, maintaining and ruling an interplanetary government. Patocuda has since flourished, seeing new trade routes and other business opportunities opening far beyond system borders and many frontline industries have already expanded their own operations into other neighbouring star systems throughout the sector.

Galnet has reported news of this nature since the Dragons first set down on Coney Gateway, but recent geopolitical analyses suggest that over the last two years, the 8th Dragon Council – the true founding members of the group – have found themselves with less and less say in how the day to day running of the faction is run.

HIP 80243 – VICTORY IN UNITY

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.’

When asked if he had plans to exploit more opportunities within local borders the President declined to comment.

The war, while over, appears to have caused some tension between the 8th Dragon Squadron and the Elite Secret Service, however...

SAVE THE TIGERS

The 8th Dragon Squadron are to make a return to the Alliance space once critical to the inception of the long standing mercenary group. A formal contract has been drawn up by commander Igor Rock of the splinter squad, the Flying Tigers of Eta Draconis – once 8th Dragons themselves – requesting battle assistance in the HIP 80243 system. Conflict over the control of vital system resources and holdings has ensued between the local HIP 80243 Republic Party and the Eta Draconis Gold Vision Company who have strong historical ties with the 8th Dragons. Intel suggests that the Republic Party have managed to secure heavy Federal backing in defence of their operations and sightings of at least one Farragut class warship in system has been reported. Currently the Flying Tigers have taken substantial losses over the last few standard days, and whether the support of the 8th Dragon Squadron will make a difference or not remains to be seen.
