Conflux Score Lucky Hit?
Inventories were damaged and production was disrupted when Amananth Station was attacked by a Conflux C10-s on 119.1.9. The damage was caused by a deemed “lucky hit.” Call me skeptical, but I think I would look into station defenses more closely before writing this one off as “lucky” — or maybe the next “lucky hit” will target nukes (i.e. BIG boom) — or take out a big chunk of the remaining, irreplaceable Antiflux inventory.
In this instance it was Flashfires, Guardians and Whistles that took the hit — and a quickly addressed Faction Mission to repair things was completed in just a few days (nice work, folks!).
Pilots See Odd KTRI Messages
For at least a coupe of weeks, pilots have reported seeing strange messages on KTRI. TRI Corp said it could find no evidence of these messages or any security breaches to that system. I’m not sure what the odd messages were, but if anyone has more specific info, just give me a shout and I’ll see what I can dig up.
Solrain Company Makes Quiet Deal
Pilots started noticing that Electronics were no longer being produced at Amananth. Most assumed this was caused by the damaged from the Conflux attack. But once repairs were completed and other things went back online — Electronics production stayed offline.
I did a little digging into this — which is not easy with anything relating to Amananth. But apparently a small company named Vargas-Wood Manufacturing recently acquired all rights to Electronics production from TRI Corp. Apparently all commodity production on Amananth is owned and managed by TRI Corp. Who knew? I thought the creepy computers down there ran everything.
I tried contacting Vargas-Wood to ask if they intended to resume Electronics production on Amananth, but could not get past the voice response system.
