Multiple Sentients were downed, though the Conflux host thought to contain the Thrice Seven Ipuki-Hanh rammed into Outpost Station before it could be destroyed by defense forces. As of press time, TRI officials were not available for comment on possible damage to Outpost Station after such a violent collision.
The bulk of the sentient Conflux attack finally ended at approximately 00:20, though a single sentient did decloak off of SpaceDrake’s wing at 00:30 and attempted to down his Tempest. The sentient failed, quickly being destroyed by a full TRI wing.
At approximately 00:40, another sentient was spotted in Arkan’s Cloud. It quickly retreated to the anomaly in sector and jumped out. These two incidents have led to theories regarding cloaked Conflux in Outpost sector during the attack. Some pilots believe that the sentients might have been cloaked near station, and that the sentient attack upon the TRI wing at 00:30 could have been a diversion to allow the other C17 Sentient to escape to Flux space with possible intel on CLAWS. New Dawn Conflux War Command believes this theory is at least plausible given the “increasingly organized nature of Conflux attacks.” (LupinOne)
There is also worry among many TRI pilots that the Conflux may attempt or have attempted a scan of Outpost Station while cloaked. There is no comment on this concern by TRI officials to date.
Expert sources within SNN have aired concerns that the Conflux’s use of C-0s against Solrain Core could imply that the enemy is gathering intelligence on Professor Vandagriff’s lab. Other sources also find it peculiar that no C-0s were present at Outpost Station for this assault.
Could the Conflux be finished with their scans of Outpost? Could Solrain Core be their next objective? Could a crippling attack on Outpost Station be pending if indeed the Conflux are done with their scans upon Outpost?
All of these questions and more remain unanswered tonight as Outpost and Solrain Core Stations continue repairs after yet another night of heavy assaults.
Shortly after the attack, TRI pilots invited Ipuki-Hanh to “kiss their behinds” after another apparent Conflux defeat. Further information is within the INFORMATION portion of the SNN article accessible via the “Comments” link below.
