(UUNN HQ) The recent release of an unusual audio file by Dr. Thane Dannewar has created a small flurry of offers by companies making promises to “find waldo” . . . for a fee.
According to Dr. Dannewar, overtures have been made by Ayabar Labs, Dorator Tech, Lexxor Intelligence and the SET Group. “I find it pretty disgusting,” said Dannewar. “I went looking for group problem-solving and all I got is group profit-seeking. If they want to help — well I released the file. Go ahead and help. There won’t be any contracts.”
To date, the only analysis of the audio has been offered by data recover expert Jalil Aq’Tamm who felt the issue was one of “deep sound” — but had not been able to decode any potential underlying datasteam. Another entity who refused to provide a name suggested they were focusing on a “spread spectrum” analysis.

(Solrain Core) Dr. Thane Dannewar announced today that he has isolated what he believes may be a transmission from the lost planet Solrain.
“I know this just sounds like static to most, but I have been able to specifically extract this as a unique signal — distinct from the cosmic background noise,” said Dannewar. “I have no idea what might be contained in this signal at this point. I’m releasing it so that others may be able to help ‘group-think’ a way to confirm that this truly is a broadcast of some sort — and if it is — figure out how to extract the data it contains.”
Dr. Dannewar is the grandson of Cameron Dannewar, best known for his role in the Thrice Seven — but who also known for his passion for uncovering the fate of the planet Solrain, which was lost in The Great Collapse.

(Octavius Core Station) In the last week, a name resurfaced in the duty rosters that only a handful of veteran pilots will remember: RazorsKiss. A former New Dawn squadron leader, RazorsKiss was heavily involved in early Conflux research with TRI-R and in the Amananth 20 affair. He agreed to a brief interview regarding his disappearance — and recent return.
Hello, RazorsKiss – and welcome back to active duty after all these years. Exactly how long were you gone from active duty?
As far as I can recall (things are a bit fuzzy, with the Collapse, NDC going dark, my injury…) I think I last logged flight time somewhere in early 104.
What made you decide to return to flying?
I woke up – at Oct Core. I played some catch up – now older, and more than a little grey – and applied for reinstatement. Continue reading

(UUNN HQ) For the first time in over four months, pilots have reported Conflux infestation activity at several points around space.
“There does not appear to be any particular patter at this point,” said Carlo Adiar, Assistant Director for Conflux Studies at TRI Corporation (TRI-R/CSD). “I do not see this as a dangerous incursion at this point … just more of a traffic nuisance.”
When vorlon31 was contacted for an interview about the recent infestations, he simply responded “ALL FLUX MUST DIE.”
(UUNN HQ) TRI Security has released the following statement regarding this morning’s hack of TRI Databank.
We have determined that the hacking of TRI Databank this morning was a very minor security breach impacting only the home page for the databank system. No other data was corrupted and we have found no evidence that any critical systems have been touched.
(UUNN HQ) TRI Databank, which serves as the public access point to TRI Corporation’s extensive cultural, historical and technical archives was apparently hacked today, raising fears that TRI’s systems could have been compromised in even more serious ways.
The hack is a fairly simple graphic with a somewhat ominous message.
TRI Corporation has refused to make a statement until more is known about the situation.
(Quantar Core) The Quantar squad Brotherhood of the Stone is offering a special Miners Days Holiday mission to find new asteroids in any Quantar sectors — with credits awarded for each previously-uncharted non-common asteroid. The Quantar Tahirs have agreed to double the payouts and to offer a Captain Commendation to each participant, and The Spade of Karadron medal to the pilot with the most qualified finds.
Full details on this squad-sponsored mission can be found on TRI-PLOG.
