TRI HQ (TRI-FP) – The following release from TRIR was received via automated delivery today from the office of Dr. Giovanni Castillo, Acting Director of TRI Research.
It is my sad duty to announce, as Acting Director of TRIR and the official in charge of ongoing investigations into misappropriation of funds, that we have uncovered a great deal of disturbing information regarding the so-called “black-research” project involving the recombination of Human DNA and Conflux bio-matter.
Although a large number of records have been destroyed or erased, there is now enough evidence for us to indict Dr. Nevin Yrral, currently suspended Director of TRIR, on charges of treason, espionage, and unethical behavior. Dr. Yrral has betrayed the trust of pilots, his superiors in TRI, and his fellow researchers. Continue reading →
TRI HQ (TRI-FP) – TRIR Acting Director Dr. Castillo today announced that the first major “break” has surfaced in the investigations into misappropriation of research funds.
Although some details are currently being withheld due to concerns over pilot security, Castillo stated that a number of “black-research” projects have been discovered within TRIR. These projects have apparently been funded by the diversion of other, legitimate, project funding, through special charges including ‘external consulting’ which at first glance appear to be legitimate.

TRI ASSORTED (TRI-FP) – TRI pilots have determined they need to take Research into their own hands, with the call for many pilots to end the Economic Affairs Office (EAO) freeze on current TRI Research budgets.
Billed as “government of the people, by the people, for the people”, RazorsKiss organized a meeting for interested pilots earlier this week to gather together and discuss a proposal originally presented towards Octavius Prefect Porcius Versalus. The proposal called for the formation of “A consortium of squads from all factions will comprise an investor’s board, and thus fund TRIR’s other sections, as well as wisely distribute and invest the funds required at their discretion.”
The meeting itself was large, and hinted at many approaches to the situation, but no real solutions were decided upon. The results of this meeting were then organized into four talking points for pilots to further discuss.
TRI HQ (TRI-FP) – The surprises keep coming for TRI Research. This evening, Acting Director Castillo announced that, after heated negotiations, the Economic Affairs Office (EAO) has agreed to restore partial funding to TRIR under TRI’s emergency relief funding procedures. Although exact figures were not available, the totals available are said to be approximately 20% of TRIR’s normal budget.
“Obviously, reduced funding means reduced capabilities,” stated Acting Director Castillo. “Nonetheless, I am grateful that the EAO is committed to helping TRIR continue operations during the difficult times which will be brought on by these investigations.” Castillo went on to explain that two of the popular programs benefiting from the funds would include the Conflux studies headed up by Dr. Q’son, and the Communication projects headed up by Dr. Calsux.
