TRI Reports Ship Missing

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ)  TRI Corporation reported this morning that one of its unmanned cargo tows has stopped responding to remote commands and all telemetry has been lost.

The ship launched from Klatsches Hold at approximate 08:00 UTC and was en route to GBS Station with what is rumoured to be extremely valuable cargo.  The last telemetry was received at approximately 08:23 UTC from Zealots Refuge.  TRI Corp requests that any sightings be reported to tri@tr-subspace.net, but pilots have already begun to form search parties since disabled ships — in unregulated space, with no living crew — are considered legal salvage.

Festival! 120 Event Schedule Released

THURSDAY – 120.11.26

BEER FEST FMs

Every party needs beer, so pilots will have a number of “beer-sharing” missions to take on. Watch the Faction Mission board on Thursday for details.

THOUSAND WORDS CONTEST (already announced)

We published three pictures on UUNN on 120.11.13.  You pick one and write a story about it.  What is the place in the picture.  What happened there … or what will happen.  What’s it’s purpose?  What’s its secret? Is it past … present … or future?  Let your imagination run wild!  Make it long or make it short.  Make it funny or make it tragic.  It’s up to you.

Submit YOUR story to librarian@tri-subspace.net by Sunday 120.11.29 at 24:00 UTC.  If our editors select your story for publishing in the Sarath V Memorial Library, you will receive a Newtron Literary Award (aka “The Newt”) and 5 million credits.

FRIDAY – 120.11.27

FESTIVAL LIGHTS! (MOVED TO SUNDAY)

SATURDAY – 120.11.28

TREASURE HUNT

TRI-TRAN-1 is a remotely-operated cargo tow.  TRI has lost contact with it and it’s stuck somewhere far out in Unregulated Space.  Because of the upcoming holiday, TRI may not be able to dispatch a search party for some time  — which means the derelict ship will be legal salvage!  More details regarding its route/possible location will be announced on 120.11.28.
