TRI-HQ (TRI-FP) – Inventories of Cromforge Enterprise equipment have been hit hard by apparent sabotage, according to a press release issued today by Cromforge spokesperson Cila Rotup’uh.
“Shortly after 9pm a large group of Octavian pilots, primarily from squad OEC, entered Quantar space, escorting Livia Pulchra towards TriPoint station. In a preemptive strike, Pulchra was quickly returned to Octavian space by pilot spork of Quantar squad Brotherhood. Facing strong resistance around TriPoint, the Octavians moved towards Quantar Core and Corridor instead, and were able to destroy Cromforge’s Thorn manufacturing facilities at those stations. Two more attempts to sabotage the primary Thorn facilities at TriPoint were thwarted by pilots from assorted Quantar squads, including Brotherhood, DDZ, and Fourth Tribe. Pilot Radi was able to inflict two pod rides on Pulchra, with able assistance from CaptainCow of DDZ.
“The loss of the facilities and equipment at Corridor and Quantar Core is unfortunate, but Cromforge will recover from this. We are, of course, very grateful to all those pilots who helped to successfully protect our facilities at TriPoint, while extremely disappointed that a squad such as OEC would lower itself to escorting a known saboteur like Pulchra.
“Credible information from pilot Hrafn has led to Octave Propulsion Labs being identified as the ultimate instigator of this incident, and Cromforge is currently reviewing its options for remediation.”
OPL’s public relations department did not immediately respond to TRINN’s request for comment.
