(Danubia, Martius) For the first time in 50 years, the war helmet of Emperor Atticus VI will be made available for public display.
“The last time it was displayed was for the 100th anniversary of his death,” said Anto Islin, Legate for Danubia Province. “Emperor Septus felt it appropriate to made it available to the public again on the 150th anniversary of his death.”
The public display at the Imperial Heritage Museum in Danubia will begin tomorrow, 117.12.2 — the anniversary of Atticus’ death — and will continue until the end of the year.
Atticus VI (85 BT – 33 BT) is best known as the last Emperor of a unified Octavius. Atticus VI took that throne in 45.8 BT after the culmination of the Unification Wars. Atticus VI held the throne for just 12 years, dying at age 52

(Solrain Wake) Seven days ago it was determined that the audio that was captured by Dr. Thane Dannewar did, indeed have underlying data. Dr. Dannewar has been completely unavailable to the media, but today he released the following statement.
“Initially it was a very emotional time,” said Dannewar. “You have to understand, I have been searching all of my life for answers about planet Solrain. I’ve always had some irrational hope that it was out there to be found somewhere . . . still managing to survive. I’m not sure this recent finding supports that hope.
“What we have appears to be a log created by a distress system. After the initial entry at 5:52 all subsequent log entries are periodic, every five minutes. The final intact entry is at 11:00. There is some corruption of the data within this timeframe and that is unclear whether the log itself was corrupted or the dataset became corrupted in the intervening time.
“The key is the date: 4816.16.8. This is a Sorian Standard date-stamp. The Sorian year 4816 corresponds to the TRI Year 2000 BT — the assumed year of The Great Collapse. While we usually see Sorian dates expressed as ‘mm.dd’ it is not unheard of for that to be reversed in some systems – and that is the case here. So the event triggering this distress system happened in 2000 BT at 5:52 on 8.16. The system stopped recording at about 11:00. So if we assume this is authentic (and I believe it is), we can hypothesize that what we are seeing is a five-hour period representing the initial effects of The Great Collapse – and, possibly, it’s final catastrophic effects.”
Dr. Dannewar said he is continuing his search for additional evidence of the lost planet, it’s current location, and its fate.
In a cooperative effort between TRI-Databank, the Sarath V Memorial Library and UUNN, an interactive time line has been developed to record important historical events running from 3900 BT to the present. It includes information that had been available on previous, static timelines and has been updated with new information. Entries are sized based on universal importance and color-coded for faction-specific events. Continue reading
(Etruscera, Martius) Consul Cicero Rnenta, Consul for Martius, was quick to respond to the recent statement made by Emperor Venticus of Ares Prime about recent DSS decryptions.
“They’re grasping for legitimacy,” said Consul Rnenta. “They are taking roughly 100 words that were decrytpted and interpolated from an unverified, badly corrupted DSS and turning it into a claim that our greatest legend originated on Ares. It’s not even a very well-supported theory let alone something resembling historical facts. I’m not sure whether that DSS is real history … I’m not sure exactly how old it is … and I’m especially suspect of Solrain dating appearing in something purporting to be Octavius history.

Pilot Nafcon was the first to submit a decryption of the DSS code release yesterday by Dorator.
“Just after the Establishment of the colony on Ares in 4093, Adm. Ryne Patten, leading the 8th Expedition, has us a…. control the military …. abolish the colony assembly and declare emperor Octavius. Patten was saying: “The Eight Expedition …. from our little planet ……… a backwater. Our ancestors were pioneers, conquering a new world. WE are the pioneers living that spirit of Ares. We are not scientist or philosoph-men………children of the warrior. Though we are far from home it is the warrior blood that drives us.
.. no official word from the Governors on Martius, but sou ….at it is … security forces on high Alert — even though….back from Ares w …..ake”

(Hyperial Station) Just a day after completing its first public DSS collection efforts, Dorator Technologies R&D is releasing the decryption of one of its DSS.
“First let me say that we are not in the business of doing data recovery and decryption for free,” said Malkev Dorator II, Sr. Vice President of Operations. “We have some very big clients willing to pay very well for our services. But we are willing to do contract work of all types — for individuals, squads, organizations, factions — even other corporations. Continue reading
