Octavius Core (TRI-FP) – Octave Propulsion Labs today issued a request for proposal (RFP) for what they term as ‘pest control’ throughout Octavian space.

“Recently, there has been significant conflux swarm activity in and around Octavian space,” remarked Zru Tudezaw from OPL. “OPL believes that there is significant benefit in keeping Octavian space lanes clear of the conflux pests. After consulting with Octavius CSD, there is strong evidence to suggest that clearing sectors of conflux will create ‘zero conflux activity’ (ZCA) windows within those sectors.

“As ever, OPL is taking a proactive path, and asking for interested parties to submit proposals for not only actively fighting swarms, but also working to create as many ZCA windows within Octavian space as possible – enabling those pilots who wish to further Octavian interests in other ways to do so in peace, without having to be concerned about conflux pests popping up.

“All proposals will be reviewed early next week, and the contract will be awarded shortly after a winner is selected.”

Proposals and questions should be submitted directly to OPL no later than 105.04.10 23:59 ET.

We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused, and we are doing everything in our power to find those responsible.”

Outpost (TRI-FP) – In what appear to be totally independent actions, pilots working for Tens and Piney as well as Cromforge Enterprises launched successful raids against a warehouse being used by competitor OPL at Outpost station.

“It is a shame that Cromforge and T&P have decided to turn this peaceful challenge into a dirty war,” stated OPL spokesperson Zru Tudezaw. “However, this surprise attack upon our facilities will not go unpunished. We are reviewing our options, and rest assured, we will implement a suitable proportional response.”

“Cromforge can not and will not allow OPL to win this bid,” remarked Cila Rotup’uh for Cromforge. “Their plans to reverse engineer the cure into a new, more potent, virus are simply unacceptable, and they must be stopped at any cost. Cromforge will continue to ensure that the citizens of Perasca receive this cure without being priced gouged by T&P, nor reinfected by OPL.”

Tens & Piney declined to comment on the incident.

Solrain Core (TRI-FP) – In a statement issued by -=DragonEye=- Wing Commander dahalb, a lockdown of Solrain trade is being enforced by pilots loyal to Solrain.
“Solrain Trading has been suspended until further notice. All haulers wishing to trade with Solrain must seek approval from DE Command Staff.

Due to the nature of the current economic climate, production of certain things cannot be compromised. As such any hauler caught without authorization will be dealt with harshly. We apologize for the inconvenience and trust that during this period we will have your understanding.”

“Tens & Piney is grateful to the forward thinking of the pilots who have taken this course of action,” remarked T&P’s Vivian Duvazaco. “It is exactly this type of strategic common sense that will not only ensure T&P’s victory over Cromforge and OPL, but also provide a profitable future for all of TRI.”

While we are staunch supporters of free trade we have found it necessary to levy some strategic controls on the markets within the commonwealth,” commented Osprey, -=DragonEye=- commander. “We believe this action to be in the best interest of Solrain and in turn all of TRI. We are not interested in downing innocent pilots and are very willing to work with anyone that contacts us.”

The STCC declined to comment, citing this as a ‘pilot issue’.
