Uzelin Mysteriously Missing for Several Days

UUNN Newswire

(Amananth Station) According to unnamed sources within TRI Corp., five days ago, a Solrain Traveler-Class Transport ship registered to Tache Uzelin was found floating in The Depths, approximately 71,000 meters out beyond the C2201 gate. The cockpit/lifepod wad missing, but the ship was otherwise undamaged and powered-down.


Uzelin’s ship was found by a Quantar pilot who was artifact hunting in The Depths. That pilot asked to remain anonymous. Upon finding the Solrain “derelict,” the pilot immediately reported it to the STCC, but TRI-SEC was first on the scene. They did a preliminary investigation, searching the area for evidence of exactly what happened, and then took possession of the ship.

Tache Uzelin was the former head of TRI-DEF but moved to the private sector once the TRI Charter was non-renewed. Uzelin had most recently been working as a defense consultant to the STCC.

TRI-SEC has not released any official statement on its findings.


Octavian Awards Presented by Cineon

By Thane Carios

(Outpost Station)  One the final day of this year’s Feast of the Fallen, Emperor Cineon presented three of the highest awards given by Octavius to its pilots with National Honors going to Algore; Night’s Blade going to _RAZAAR_ and Emperor’s Emissary going to Toulos.

When asked how these particular pilots were chosen, Cineon responded, “Aveg et H’nore (Glory and Honor). That is at the heart of everything for Octavius. These pilots have brought Glory and Honor to Octavius through their actions.” Cineon also went on to say, “These things usually are awarded to committed factionalists, but also to those, like Toulus, who brought honor upon themselves — and our entire people – through their actions.”

Toulus was the first Octavian to achieve Optimus since The Catastrophe two years ago.

Fight Club Medals were also awarded to Filzi (for The Last Dragon I on Saturday) and kresch (for The Last Dragon II on Sunday).

Emperor Cineon kicks off Feast of the Fallen with a BANG!

UUNN Newswire

(Outpost Station) Today in a rare act for a member of the royalty, Emperor Cineon personally flew up to Outpost station from the planet Cinatus below. He remained in Outpost sector space for nearly an hour conducting the opening ceremony for this year’s Feast of the Fallen, the Recitation of the Heroes, where the name of an Octavian warrior or hero from the past is called out aloud and the hero’s accomplishments and victories are recalled.

Early in the ceremony, Jellyfish appeared in the space around the station, followed by an attack from a Sentient c9 Kraken. The Sentient seemed to target the Emperor’s Dragon heavy fighter directly. Pilots Shadowhart, -Mabasha-, Filzi, and Mas-0 were all in the area providing support,  however it was Emperor Cineon himself that brought down the Conflux interloper! Once defeated, the Sentient did not return, and the Emperor, somewhat invigorated by the action, resumed his speech.

Various Fallen (and “Fallen Away”) Heroes of Octavius were named by Cineon and many other pilots over f5:chat including: Quincitius II (Cineon’s father, assassinated some 16 years ago), Enkido Khan (Thrice Seven Explorer who discovered Amananth), Savo, The Tyke, Lxholla, WileE, Ridgeway, SHUG, BladeR, Magnus-Ex, Fellblade, {ND}Falcon, Razorskiss, Odiche, Zaltys, Havik, Wyx, and others.

The Emperor concluded the ceremony by docking at Outpost and buying every pilot docked an Oct Lite for several toasts.

Thane Carios

(Outpost Station)  The explosion at the Octavia Lite production facility on 114.5.21 has been officially ruled accidental by Imperial Corps of Engineers (ICE) investigators.

“This was a freak accident,” said Darel Tassker for ICE.  “We had a failure of a pressure release valve that caused the fermenting tank to explode.  All of the injuries were cuts, contusions and abrasions.”

When asked about the rumors flying around, Tassker said, “This was an accident, pure and simple.  The conspiracy theorists will just have to be disappointed this time.”

Octavian Tri-Emperor Cineon, who is Grand Marshal of this year’s holiday, is expected to fly out from Cinatus to Outpost Station at some point for Feast of the Fallen events and ceremonies which start this Friday, 114.5.23.  According to sources within the Imperial Guard, exhaustive random security sweeps are being conducted on all buildings, factories and stations throughout Outpost sector.

Pilots are encouraged to bring repair beams to Outpost sector to help repair the facility.
