(Hyperial Station) Hyperial today recognized the efforts of several pilots who worked to repair the damaged building in Hyperial Station sector. Dr. Viggio Ragne, Hyperial Special Representative for the Office of the President, released the following statement:
“We are elated to be able to recognize four pilots who put aside their daily duties to repair the Phosphorous Nanoproducer that had been attacked by Quantar two years ago, and which had experienced 3 suspicious explosions over the last few days. We are awarding the Hyperial Duty Ribbon, 20 PR units and 100,000 credits each to pilots GrimGriz, Imorg, Me.1 and Orka. Orka had initially performed repairs on the structure, while GrimGriz, Imorg and Me.1 brought the building back from the brink of collapse after subsequent explosions nearly destroyed it.
“And I must make special mention of Imorg, a Quantar, who risked censure by his own faction and clearly demonstrated that not all Quantar are deceitful and evil.”
(Quantar Core)Festival 118! came to a close with some mixed reviews. About 40 pilots were online over the four days of the holiday, but according to TRI Corporation, which sponsors the annual holiday events, pilots participation in contests and events was fairly disappointing across the board.
Conversely, there was some disappointment with TRI Corp’s event management as well. Pilot Sinver slammed the running of Friday’s Treasure Hunt event, saying:
“I was looking forward to this all,day while at work. I’ve wasted an entire evening because quite frankly, you couldn’t organize a piss up in a brewery. The clues were useless. Don’t even bother tomorrow. Just park the ship and forget about it. A great idea, really great idea terribly executed. My entire evening wasted. Thanks guys.”
(UUNN HQ) TRI Corporation announced today that on behalf of Octavius, Quantar and Solrain, it has presented special awards to the pilots participating in the recent “Hivebuster Mission.”
Pilots Clanlord, Darkness, Gen.Tra, Morris and Tui were awarded a special Hivebuster Campaign Ribbon. The ribbon, designed specifically for this mission, is unique to this campaign and will never be awarded again. In addition, each of these five pilots has received a special award of three AB4s (deposited in their Depot storage) to recognize their willingness to continue pursuing this mission in the face of some daunting odds.
Clanlord, Gen.Tra and Morris were also awarded Defender of the Barrier medals for their significant roles in bringing about the final destruction of the targeted hives.
(Quantar Core) Although the asteroid cooling problem seemed to overshadow this year’s holiday, there were a couple of activities.
The first one was an opportunity for pilots to vote for a new Quantar award — the Shahir Assad or “Shining Lion.” The award is for lifetime achievements in service of Quantar. As with the Solrain Hall of Fame, the voting ended in a tie between Tezrend and Ambrosius, so a randomized choice was made — and the winner was Tezrend (aka Tesrend)! Votes were also received for tom-t and the late FS-Falcon.
The other holiday contest was QuanTrivia where there were four entrants getting all five answers correct and winning a Cesium Medal, a CM4 and 1 million credits! Congratulations to the winners: Hammer-BS, Gander, ML-Death and Clanlord!
The awarding of medals and prizes should be completed over the next few days. Continue reading →
(Quantar Core) On 118.8.5 pilot FS_Falcon passed from this life. A Quantar Optimus, FS_Falcon led the squad Fatal Shadows (a multi-factional squad) for many years and was a pillar of The Reconstruction. In recognition of his long history of contributions both as an individual and as a leader, he has now been awarded both the TRI Order of Merit and Hamalzah’s Divine Grace.
In addition, the Echoes of Hope is being awarded to pilot ShapeShift for his efforts in organizing and running the memorial for this pilot who touched many lives.
(Octavius Outpost) In a very unusual move, an additional medal has been added to the list of Festival awards. The awards committee has decided to posthumously award the Sarath’s Rage Medal to pilot Wilson. Sources who declined to be named indicated that the award was hotly debated — primarily because of Wilson’s squad (The Gang) and it’s predilection to collect certain fees from unwilling pilots.
“With him it was always about the orphans of Octavius,” said long-time friend and colleague, Liet, struggling to contain his emotions.
The Sarath’s Rage medal is awarded to “individuals who have had a long career as a combat ace.” Along with being posted to Wilson’s pilot record, the medal will also be presented to his wife, Mrs. Wilson, with the sincere condolences of the entire pilot community.
The new award, the Chrysalis Campaign Ribbon, is being awarded to pilots who supported the extended campaign by Quantar — some of it apparently covert — to derail and destroy what Quantar is calling, Hyperial’s renewed attempts to circumvent the co-operative program developed by the other factions — and managed by TRI Corp. — for Genetic Modifications and jump-ships.
Recipients of this unique ribbon designed specifically for this “campaign” were: Ambrosius, Blonder, Crackhead, Eismann, Hammer-BS, Jalil, Nereid, Roidrider and Valmagier — several of whom had recently been called “terrorists” by Hyperial Special Representative Dr. Viggio Ragne.
