Solrain Core (TRI-FP) – In a surprising move, Solrain manufacturer Tens & Piney has just recalled all stocks of their Travant Plus gravity driver engine.

“After performing extensive market research, Tens & Piney has decided to repackage the Travant Plus model engine,” stated Vivian Duvazaco. “While it is too early at this time to release any specific details, we believe that we can better match the Travant Plus engine to the market needs of our customers, thus creating a new paradigm in engine design that will allow the Travant Plus to create a greater level of synergy between Tens & Piney, and our customers, by providing a value proposition that clearly shows we have fully internalized their needs.”

Travant Plus production centers were at a standstill this evening, and existing inventory is being assembled for recycling.

Corridor Station (TRI-FP) – Doctors working with patients infected with the virus unleashed by the terrorist Letifer, have indicated that ‘several thousand’ patients have now been killed by the virus.

“Despite our best efforts to contain its spread, we are definitely facing an epidemic here,” commented Tahir Penjia Neamru. “Our doctors are doing their best to make those infected comfortable, yet they have been unable to slow the spread of this plague. We can attribute the deaths of several thousand citizens directly to this virus, and unfortunately, we believe the situation will only get worse, before it gets better. I can only hope that the efforts initiated by Samsun bear fruit quickly.”

Sources within Samsun indicate that, despite the lack of improved facilities, research into a cure is proceeding, using data transmitted from volunteers on Perasca who have contracted the virus.

(Quantar Core)  A late evening raid by Lions of Hamalzah agent Maus, with a small group of TRI pilots as escort, has led to the escape of the Fourth Tribe’s spokesperson Hrafn.
Although opposed by several pilots loyal to Octavius, including pilots from OEC and OMC, the rescue team managed to get Maus to the prison station, where he was able to get Hrafn to his ship for a quick departure. Despite hitting a petal, Hrafn was safely returned to Quantar Core station, where he is undergoing physical and psychological therapy for the various injuries inflicted by his captors.

The whereabouts of Maus is currently unknown, after pilot Elmdor downed Maus, shortly after Hrafn escaped.

“Everyone here is pleased to see one of our own returned to us safely,” stated Governor Delphia Neamru. “Perhaps next time, Phoenix Rising will think twice about abducting innocent bystanders, and trying to extort concessions out of the Fa’hil Memta. I will personally ensure that those pilots who were brave enough to assist in this operation are suitably recognized ”

There has been no official comment from the Octavian government regarding this incident.

Corridor (TRI-FP) – Damage assessment following the Sentient Conflux attack of the night before last indicates that the Quantar Heavy Miner (Khamsin) Naval Yard at Corridor station was disabled, while the Fast Transport (Whirlwind) suffered ‘significant’ damage, although is still operational.

A statement was released from the office of Station Governor Sathama Randi:

“Shortly after 9pm ET on 105.02.13, a pair of C8-S were detected at Corridor station, escorting a C13-S ‘Kamikaze’. Despite more than adequate warning from the CLAWS array of an impending attack, Quantar beacons remained untuned for most of the evening, allowing the Conflux to approach Corridor undetected.

“With the majority of active Quantar combat pilots engaged in personal activities around Hyperial space, Corridor remained undefended except for the brave efforts of Quantar pilot Nistus, who tried valiantly to defend Corridor, despite being severely outgunned. As the attack continued, a broad coalition of pilots eventually arrived to push back the Sentients – while these pilots arrived too late to save the Khamsin yard from critical damage, this timely arrival of reinforcements, mainly from outside of Quantar, ensured that the Whirlwind naval yard remained operational.

“We have already petitioned TRI for assistance to provide repairs to the damaged naval yard.”

It is anticipated that the released chemicals and minerals will be quickly hauled away by pilots eager to manufacture items such as Amananth’s FlashFire.

Hyperial (TRI-FP) – As part of their ongoing commitment to assist with finding a cure for the virus that is currently affecting Perasca, Hyperial relief agency Topaz Cross announced today the results of a planet wide donation drive of Hypsos.

“As soon as we heard about the terrible virus that has been unleashed on Perasca, Topaz Cross sent out a planet wide request for help. The response has exceeded our expectations, and we have been able to use the donations to pledge a significant level of assistance to the building of the Samsun research facilities.

“While this pledge will no doubt help, there is still much to be done, and all of us here at Topaz Cross are confident that with the assistance of the pilots of Quantar and TRI as a whole, Samsun’s facilities will be speedily completed, and the heinous act of terrorism that released this virus will be shown to have been for naught.

“Topaz Cross will continue to monitor the situation on Perasca and provide any assistance possible.”

Tahir Queliar Neamru was quick to respond:

“As history judges us by our actions, the people of Hypsos have risen above the pettiness and bitterness shown by others, to perform a truly noble act. We thank the generosity of the people of Hypsos, and hope it will serve as an example to those Quantar pilots who would rather see our planet side citizens suffer, than accept an olive branch from an old adversary.”

Hyperial (TRI-FP) – Hyperial based corporation Samsun Universal has pledged to find a cure for the virus that was unleashed upon Perasca by Letifer early last week.
“All of us here at Samsun are exciting about helping our neighbors,” commented Samsun spokesperson Yar Tardon. “We believe that working closely with Quantar and TRI on this important project will not only help ease some of the tensions that exist between us, but also offer a valuable first step towards more favorable relations between us all.

“TRI has been most generous in offering the services of their pilots to expand our planet side research and development facilities, and we are sure they will quickly rise to the occasion, and enable us to move forward to finding a cure.

“Once we have found the cure – and we are confident that we can – it is our intention to license the manufacture of the vaccine to one or more larger TRI corporations, as the Samson facilities do not have the capacity for such a large scale production operation.”
