(Amananth) An analysis of the recent series of missions has ultimately pointed to Hives in Conflux Space sectors: First Sight, C-3309, C-1101, C-1102, and C-2199 as the reason for recent asteroid cooling problems. Pilots are currently being directed to destroy these hives quickly and to ensure they do not re-spawn.
Additional details will be provided as they become available.
(Amananth Station) According to unnamed sources within TRI Corp., five days ago, a Solrain Traveler-Class Transport ship registered to Tache Uzelin was found floating in The Depths, approximately 71,000 meters out beyond the C2201 gate. The cockpit/lifepod wad missing, but the ship was otherwise undamaged and powered-down.
Uzelin’s ship was found by a Quantar pilot who was artifact hunting in The Depths. That pilot asked to remain anonymous. Upon finding the Solrain “derelict,” the pilot immediately reported it to the STCC, but TRI-SEC was first on the scene. They did a preliminary investigation, searching the area for evidence of exactly what happened, and then took possession of the ship.
Tache Uzelin was the former head of TRI-DEF but moved to the private sector once the TRI Charter was non-renewed. Uzelin had most recently been working as a defense consultant to the STCC.
TRI-SEC has not released any official statement on its findings.
Darkspace Dispatch Vol. I, Number 5
Reports have been received that Pilot Draiocht ran across a sentient Krakken-class conflux while on patrol in conflux space. flux.jpg (3131 bytes) Although he was caught completely by surprise when the sent ship chased him through a gate, he was able to destroy the conflux and did confirm that he received a sentient “kill confirmation” from TRI.
Although running across flux in flux space is not typically considered “news,” this is the first reported sighting of a sentient in that territory. There is an unconfirmed report that TRI has requested biometric logs on pilot Draiocht for 104.11.24 to confirm his sobriety.
