(UUNN HQ) Approximately 50 pilots (including several drones) were logged-in for duty during the Festival! 119 Holiday, and for most of the events there were at least a few contestants. The organizers in TRI Corporation have already been discussing ideas on how to improve next year’s events.
Pilots Choice Awards
A number of votes came in just under the wire and the final rush resulted in Clanlord receiving the required seven votes for the Pilots Choice Award for Econ Support.
Clanlord was, by far, the leading overall vote-getter with 16 votes across all categories, but only received the required minimum of seven votes in one category. There were a total of 13 qualifying voters, casting 59 votes (not everyone voted for each category). A number of people voted without including their Pilot handle — those votes were not counted.

(UUNN HQ) This year’s TRI Trivia contest is a little bit different than previous versions of the contest. This one has a bit of a theme. As usual, there are five questions to answer — and all of the answers can be found here on UUNN; on TRI-Databank; in the Sarath V. Library; or on the Timeline of The Reconstruction. Hopefully it will require a little bit of “digging.” Continue reading
(UUNN HQ) The following events have been announced for the upcoming Festival! holiday which runs from 119.11.28 through 119.12.1 this year.
THURSDAY – 119.11.28
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.
STORYTELLER CONTEST (already announced)
We published three pictures on UUNN on 119.11.19. 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 (minimum 3,000 words). Make it funny or make it tragic. It’s up to you.
Submit YOUR story to email@example.com by Sunday 119.12.1 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. Continue reading
Sarath V Memorial Library
***** FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE *****
We’re going to try this again! Here are the “inspiration pictures” for the Sarath V Memorial Library’s Storyteller Contest 119. Your story should describe the place … what happened there (or what will happen) …. what’s it’s purpose? … what’s its secret? Is it from the past … present … or future?
Choose a picture and let your imagination run wild! You can even incorporate more than one of these settings into your story if you want.
It can be a narrative (report … log … memorandum … etc.) or a full-blown story with characters. It can be third-person or first-person … or even scripted like a play or screen play.

Make it long or make it short (minimum 3,000 words). Make it funny or make it tragic. It’s entirely up to you.

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.

(Barnard, Hypsos) The office of Chief Justice Dante Fablemi III has released the following statement:
In the declaration of our recent Faction Mission, we made it clear that it was not open to Quantar pilots. It appears that we need to reinforce this matter. Effective immediately, I am authorizing a 2 million credit bounty for confirmed kills of any Quantar pilot in Hyperial space. Confirmation should include images of the kill message and the kill marker on the map. It should be submitted to: email@example.com
Voting has opened today for the 119 Pilots’ Choice Awards. Medals for Combat, Mining, Conflux Hunting, Economy Support and Leadership will be awarded to pilots receiving the most votes — though there is a seven-vote minimum to qualify for an award. A Pilots’ Choice Award can be given to ANY registered pilot and any pilot can vote — but just once.
ALL PILOTS are encouraged to participate by voting HERE
If there are qualifiers for the medals, they will be awarded on 119.12.1.
(UUNN HQ) A new “FluxBuster” patch has been unveiled to recognize pilot participation in significant efforts to destroy Conflux Hives, clear Conflux Swarms and drive off Conflux Sentients. The patch can be awarded multiple times and pilots are encouraged to display them proudly on their flight-suits.
The first pilots to receive the patch are Aeghwhyn, Alafan, Don_Brasco, StopSign and Tallo — who combined to clear eight infestations scattered throughout Solrain space and disrupting trade.
