Economic disaster strikes the Galaxy
What disreputable scientists seeking funding are calling “another collapse aftershock,” large stockpiles of commodities began mysteriously dwindling shortly after our last issue. In what some are reporting as station protests over quality of life concerns, large quantities of some very expensive commodities have slowly trickled away to parts unknown.
The rumors around unreg are of a more sinister nature. A grizzled dockworker from Lothar’s Landing offered his take:
“Oh, they’ll tell you it’s this or that, but watch the moving pieces. This guy is found dead in Hyperial, later some platinum goes missing. That guy peacefully passes, and some gold goes missing from the station floating above the Empress.
As often as not, the ‘conflux attack’ or ‘production malfunction’ or ‘station protest’ is just cover for someone gettin’ paid for having done something nasty”

Solrain Squad Starfleet has been flouting military dominance in all faction space, thoroughly trouncing Octavian opposition and tuning their Quantar “allies” space a deeper shade of blue, meeting only contracted opposition.
Manufactured Food Production Skyrockets
Pilots from multiple squads have been putting Hyperial’s new manufactured foods facility through the paces, will over 2000 units reportedly produced over the last 2 days. A representative of Squad E.R.I., a major force in this endeavor, had this to say:
“The people on our stations have been getting by on bare sustenance for long enough, let them enjoy the best of processed foods, and let that food come from Hyperial.”
Be vigilant pilots, and as always:
In these trying times there is always Light at the Gateway of your Heart. Fly safe.
