Festival! 117 Awards Announced

by Yaz Shanndar

(Solrain Core) Awards for the Festival! 117 have been released — with a couple that were unexpected.  “Festival! is the biggest holiday of the year,” said Garth Taren, President & CEO of TRI Corporation.  “TRI Corporation works very hard and very closely with Solrain, Quantar and Octavius to sponsor a diverse series of holiday events that are available to a broad array of pilots of all levels.  This year we had races, contests, missions, trivia — and even a Haiku-writing contest.”

Taren went on to say that the Festival! holiday provides a perfect platfor for special recognitions:  “Festival! gets everyone’s attention in a unique way because it’s roots come from ALL of the factions.  This year, we are pleased to introduce a new, very prestigious award called ‘Sarath’s Orb,’ and along with that, we are absolutely thrilled that we will be able to announce two Pilots Choice Awards because there is nothing better than being recognized by your peers.” Continue reading

STCC Provides Details on Name the Heroes Event

UUNN Newswire

(Cornea Station) STCC’s initial Reconstruction Days holiday schedule did not provide any details about its Name the Heroes event — simply saying that it was a “trivia-type event.”  As it turns out it is — and it’s a very fitting topic for Reconstruction Days.

Almost everyone knows the story of The Thrice Seven.  They were the seven pilots sent by each faction to test-pilot TRI’s first single-pilot jump-ships.  Many had auspicious careers before and after this test-pilot duty.  Some had tragic ends.

For 5,000,000 credits and a Seeker of Knowledge medal, name at least five of Solrain’s members of The Thrice SevenName all seven and win a PCS-4, too!

Answers should be submitted to STCC@tri-subspace.net by Saturday 117.7.8 at 24:00 UTC.

STCC Releases Reconstruction Days Event Lineup

UUNN Newswire

(Solrain Core)  The event lineup for this year’s Reconstruction Days holiday — which from from Friday 117.7.7. through Sunday 117.7.9 — has finally been released by the STCC:

1. Name the Heroes

This is a trivia-type event.  Full details will be released on the Friday, so keep an eye on UUNN!  Answers, submitted to STCC@tri-subspace.net will be due by Saturday 117.7.8 at 24:00 UTC.

2. What’s YOUR Story?

The Henge is a pre-collapse site that dates to approximately 2,800BT.  Its massive structures and ancient technology have puzzled archaeologists and engineers for decades upon decades.  The most popular theory is that it’s a launch site, but there is no real data to back that up.

the-henge

Take a look at the picture of The Henge . . . read the little we know about it in TRI-Databank . . . and then let your imagination run wild.

Tell us your story about what The Henge’s original purpose was – and maybe detail its eventual demise.  Was it a technological wonder?  Was it an epic failure?  How long did it operate?

Your story does not have to be scientifically accurate — just creative!  We’re not looking for a novel, plot or characters (but feel free, if you want) – just your description.  Make it long or make it short.  Make it funny or make it tragic.  It’s up to you.

Submit YOUR story to STCC@tri-subspace.net by Sunday 117.7.9 at 24:00 UTC.

We will publish ALL of the stories.

  • The WINNER will get a Cesium Medal – and 100u of Cesium!
  • The RUNNER-UP will get a Platinum Medal and 100u of Platinum!
  • ALL OTHER entrants will receive a Captain’s Commendation and an Antiflux.

3. The Production Race – Saturday 117.7.8 at 15:00 UTC

Fire up your favorite Market Tool and Race against friends and foes alike to manufacture an item that we will announce.  The race will begin at Cornea Station and will end there exactly 90 minutes later.  Use any ship.  Use any equipment.  The thing you need MOST will be your brains!

The pilot who delivers the MOST of the requested items will win a Cesium Medal and 5 million credits!  The second and third-place finishers will win the Platinum and Antimony medals respectively.

There must be at least three racers in order for this race to be run.

  • The data should not only be decrypted, but where there is corruption, you must attempt to interpolate to make sense of the information.  It is also important to try to determine a date wherever possible.
  • Your should submit your one decrypted DSS entry to quantar@tri-subspace.net.
