Missions and More Missions
Well we saw a burst of mission activity in the last few weeks. First Octavius and Quantar coordinated efforts (whaaaat???) to try to do something about Magnesium supplies. Quants were, of course, mining and Octs were gathering. The missions went pretty quickly but ultimately did fairly little to increase supplies. At the same time, TRI Corporation sponsored a mission to collect Biomass — which is a pretty tricky task requiring pilot coordination to collect any serious amounts. I guess there was not a lot of coordination as there isn’t any biomass around and that mission is still standing at 29% after 23 days. Lastly there was a mission to bring Medical Supplies to Great Pillars station.

The diagnostic log also mentions “TRI.” And since “BT” means “before TRI” . . . well that’s news.
