Solrain Core (TRI-FP) – TRI announced in a press release today that a formal request had been sent to Amananth to cease production of GateKey MODx for TRI ships.
GateKeys are required to pass the specially-tuned gates leading into Conflux space. Per the release, TRIR-CSD will be simultaneously decommissioning the generators that prevent normal jump access.
“The GateKeys have been a drain on resources,” commented Spiro Wengat, an aide to Sagrith Hubri. “It’s high time the CPUs and other valuable components used to produce them were diverted to more important needs. The defensive merit of the existing system has been limited.”
Dr. Aulus Calatorius, representing the Division of Conflux Science and Defense, was less reserved in his comments. “The TRI GateKey project was a poorly-considered travesty,” Calatorius remarked. “The frequency shifts on the transfer gates never have done a [deleted] thing to keep Conflux swarms out of our space. TRI’s distortion wave generators should have been removed long ago, so that our forces could take the fight to the Conflux unhindered.”
No representatives of TRI-R CSD were available for comment, although pilots are advised to return surplus GateKeys to stations for recycling.
