At the risk of annoying my colleague (and editors), I think Thane may be having a slow news month. Meetings between Faction Leaders (Garreth), Bankers (Prescott) and Corporate Execs (Dorator) don’t seem to be a very big deal to me. If these kinds of people didn’t have meetings, what else would they do with their time?
Do You Have Questions About Great Collapse?
There’s a guy over on this channel who seems to be suggesting there may be some facts about The Great Collapse that have been buried for some reason. I always accepted that the extended dark age in the aftermath of the event is the reason we have so little understanding. Any other conspiracy theorists out there?
What’s Going on With Prosthetics?
I don’t understand what is going on with Prosthetics. They were declared contraband years ago, but there is still a black market for some reason and my sources tell me they are selling for over 4.2 million credits to the right buyers. Who is buying these and why?
(Solrain Core) Sources revealed today that a meeting is planned on Solrain Core Station between STCC Premier Demeter Garreth, Elden Prescott III (Chairman Emeritus of Sorian Bancorp) and Malkev Dorator, Founder of Dorator Technologies R&D. The Premier’s office refused comment when asked about the date and time of the meeting or its purpose.
Oct Core was attacked by Conflux on 7.5 with the station sustaining some minor damage. Apparently the Conflux attacked outbuildings first, but there has been not official report on any damage there. They also attacked the station and were trying to do something at the ETP. This was the largest station attack we have seen in quite some time. You have to wonder if this was random or if Flux aggression will be ramping up.
For the first time in a very long time we’ve been hearing from the Amananth Station AI (aka DPDQ). First in relation to repairing the production for the “inhibitor” (aka antiflux); and later when it apparently scolded RazorsKiss for having someone blow up an old New Dawn area in the station. The messages were transmitted in hex — which just seems lazy to me. Continue reading →
(Solrain Core) Premier Demeter Garreth announced today that the STCC has decided to establish a new Reconstruction Days holiday tradition. Each year, they will open up a poll to name a Solrain pilot — past or present — to the Solrain Hall of Fame.
“We have had so many pilots making contributions of all kinds,” said Garreth. “It’s time we put their names in lights.”
The poll is OPEN NOW so the STCC encourages you to log in and record your vote by clicking the image below.
“All you do is go to the poll, enter your vote and enter your call-sign. It takes about 30 seconds,” said Premier Garreth. “And while the nominee must be Solrain, ANY pilot for ANY faction is welcome to register a vote!” she added.
The poll will be open through midnight on Sunday 118.7.8.
(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.
About a month ago, Emperor Septus named his nephew as the new Supreme Military Strategist — which was surprising only in that it took so long for him to boot Ares Prime’s Petillius Lucanus out. Then, last week, a sniper took shots at Aqilus’ hunting party, killing a Praetorian identified as “Kasius” — who it turns out was Kasius Faust, the Emperor’s personal guard.
And while it seems unconnected Aqilus, Martius also announced a vague partnership with Hyperial. I have yet to find out what that is all about. Continue reading →
