(UUNN HQ) It appears that the “Hive Buster” mission that was initiated on 118.9.25 (and then roundly ignored) has been changed and simplified. The original mission called for the completed destruction of all hives in five targeted sectors withing a one-hour period.
The “new” mission is calling for destruction of “most” of the hives, and does not appear to have a time limit.
Each of the targeted sectors had five hives. Pilot Morris has reported that some of these are not respawning after destruction — and that those that do respawn are greatly weakened.
Some pilots have questioned whether the new mission will, in fact, shut down the energy waves coming from Conflux Space that have now disrupted mining operation for months . . . or whether this is simply a tactic to get to pilots base to “try something.”

(UUNN HQ) Xenobiologist and Conflux “expert” Professor Athena ShaiDen believes she has uncovered a potential strategy for destroying the targeted Flux hives. “I have been monitoring the telemetry from the test-runs against the hives,” said ShaiDen. “Mr. Adiar is absolutely correct in his assessment that timing is everything. But I think one thing that no one has publicly discussed is that longer-established hives are much more difficult to destroy than newly-spawned ones — which only take about 5 nukes to take out.”

(Outpost Station) Carlo Adiar is saying that “timing is everything” for the current hive-destruction mission. Adiar is the TRI-DEF Assistant Director for Conflux Studies and was part of the team calling for this mission. “We still can’t determine exactly what is going on, but we do know one thing for sure: there is some very strange EM coming out of those five sectors — and there are five hives in each of those sectors. That’s not normal. The hives have to be connected to all of this.” Continue reading
