(UUNN HQ) Without any fuss, fanfare — or even so much as a press release, Commander H.A. Nelson was reappointed by The Directorate for another four-year term as Hyperial Station Governor.
Nelson was a surprise selection as governor in 111 because he is Quantar by birth. His long rise through the ranks in the HSS proved his loyalty, and he was made a citizen of Hyperial in 108.

(Quantar Core) The rapidly-expanding Hamalzah’din Path within Quantar allegedly tested its political muscles recently when its leader Qashish Nost’avor allegedly threatened a call for elections if the Tahirs decided to endorse or reward the recent vigilante actions against Hyperial that resulted in the destruction of the Phosphorous Nanoproducer — which had allegedly housed a secret GenMod before it was attacked and put out of commission in 117.
“We have no illusions about what the Hyperial are,” said Qashish Nost’avor,” but we also need to remember who we are. Our leaders have led us astray and many have lost their way. We must look inward — not outward — to discern Hamalzah’s will.”
“This all started when a Hyperial supporter came into our space, tuned our unattended beacons and destroyed our building. Where were our Lions then?” he added. Continue reading
Vol. III, No. 5 – by Ares Kiden
This issue has turned out to be *** The Hyperial Issue *** … because, well, I guess the rest of the factions are just pretty boring!
Hyperial Building Destroyed
It started with a series of explosions at the already-damaged Phosphorous Nanoproducer that began on the late Dr. Kelvin Rauder’s birthday. Then a pilots decided to repair that producer — and that sparked a see-saw battle with Quantar pilots (primarily Ambrosius) lobbing nukes at the building; and a group of pilots from various factions led by GrimGriz attempting to defend and repair the building.
Along the way there was lots of taunting, insulting, challenging and general deriding going on. There were even a couple ship-to-ship battles. In the end, the building was destroyed — but that has still not put an end to the debate over whether the building had housed a secret Hyperial GenMod laboratory.
We may never know. Continue reading
(Octavius Core Station) Massive rioting and a number of sporadic rioter conflicts have been seen across all of the major cities on Ares Prime, with the largest and most severe ones being in Trivera and Eiro — where groups promoting all-out war against Martius have clashed with protesters calling for an end to Imperial rule. More than 50 fatalities have been reported so far, with over seven hundred injuries.
Other smaller groups have had more peaceful protests centering around issues such as the recent skyrocketing price of Baby Bitz(tm) and the long-running complaints about the ‘Nix hitbox.
(Great Pillars Station) Emperor Atticus Septus died in the early hours this morning. The following is a statement recorded by Atticus Aqilus , his nephew and his heir.

(Solrain Core) The STCC has announced that Arbin Mallow, the long-time member of the STCC, has won the race for Speaker for Soria by a wide margin, taking 67% of the vote with an extremely-light voter turnout.
Mallow, who has been a member of the STCC since 086, ran a very quiet campaign riding the strength of his substantial connections and political capitol to victory over Aeolsah Radic — the long time aide to Demeter Garreth who was named interim Speaker when Garreth took over as Premier on 6.1.
(UUNN HQ) The polls are now open for Citizens of Solrain to elect a new Speaker for the planet Soria:
Although Aeolsah Radic is technically the incumbent, since he has held the post since Demeter Garreth took over as Premier on 118.5.1, Mallow is a long-time STCC Member with extremely strong political ties.
The poll will remain open until 118.7.1.
