The Catastrophe, Remembered

By Yaz Shanndar

Most pilots remember exactly where they were when it was happened.  Listenting to JPR . . . fighting Conflux . . . tuning beacons . . . mining . . .

Then everything went dark.

The following is the 115.4.30 recording of the speech by Sarath V on the third Anniversary of The Catastrophe (he died just six months later).

This week, on 120.4.30, we mark the eighth anniversary of The Catastrophe.  And as with every year since 114 when Founders Day was officially moved, this anniversary overlaps with the Solrain holiday.

Solrain has planned no space-based Founders’ Day celebrations this year.

It’s Hellion Day!

by Yaz Shanndar

(Wake Station) Here’s a “Fact of the Day” for you …

Although it’s not considered a holiday anymore, some older Sols will remember today as “Hellion Day.”  It is a commemoration of the day that has traditionally marked the end ofhellion the Dark Age that followed The Great Collapse — the day when Sorian explorers first landed on the planet Hellion.

Many non-Solrains don’t know it, but Hellion was a product of The Great Collapse, which altered its orbit so much that it’s frozen oceans melted.  The newly-thawed planet was discovered in 1,959 BT and terraforming began in 4,908 BT — but the first explorers did not arrive until 1707.10.15 BT on the ship New Dawn.
