Although there has been no official report, I have heard from trustworthy sources that an autopsy was performed on the recently-deceased Emperor, and the results were pretty shocking. It appears that Septus has been kept alive for some time with the aid of illegal Prosthetics and other dangerous drugs. Some have suggested that, if this is true, then Septus technically lost his legitimacy to rule when his natural organs (allegedly) began being replaced.
DSS Data Raises Questions
An individual going by the name R. Cainhas been asking questions about DSS and has put some interesting (but not conclusive) data together. What he has found is that most of the DSS that have been recovered and deciphered are not pre-collapse artifacts. In fact, only 35% of them (at most) are pre-collapse. Given that fact, he goes on to question whether other artifacts may also be of more recent origin … which would then open of a whole new set of questions.
I had hoped to get Jalil Aq’tamm’s opinions on this, but he has not responded to my questions. Continue reading →
(Octavius Outpost) Dorator Technologies R&D has announced its new manufacturing and distribution strategy in the wake of the recent acquisition the manufacturing rights for several pieces of TRI Corp equipment.
“We have decided to focus most of our production and distribution from two locations,” said Malkev Dorator II, Sr. Vice President of Operations. “We will be focusing our weapons production at Octavius Outpost station. It will be the sole manufacturing outlet now for the Barrak, Cobra and the Flail. The only exception will be the Hammer, which will continue to be manufactured in Solrain at Wake station.”
“Regarding the new acquisitions,” said Dorator, “the Nightwatchman radar, TRIC-1 Capacitor, TRIP-1 power plant, Vector engine and Warden shield will now be manufactured exclusively at our Hyperial Manufacturing facility.”
“We are also very excited to announce that we will be testing the first non-faction manufacturing operation at Klatsches Hold where we will be making the Drop Tank refueling system.”
According to Dorator, the Drop Tank test facility is now operational. Other manufacturing changes should be moving forward over the next two weeks.
(Solrain Core) In a surprising move, Dorator R&D has purchased the rights to several pieces of equipment from TRI Corporation. They released the following joint statement:
TRI Corporation has agreed to sell all rights to its non-M.O.D.x. equipment lines to Dorator Technologies R&D effective today. This includes the DropTank refueling system, NightWatchman radar, TRIC-1 capacitor, TRIP-1 power plant, Vector engine and Warden shield.
The sale includes the intellectual property, manufacturing rights, certain manufacturing equipment and current unsold inventory.
Dorator will be coming up with a manufacturing and distribution strategy for its new equipment lines over the next 30 days.
Although the sale price was not part of the release, sources have indicated that it was approximately 4.2 billion credits. It is also believed that Sorian Bancorp provided significant financing for the purchase.
(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.
(UUNN HQ) The recent release of an unusual audio file by Dr. Thane Dannewar has created a small flurry of offers by companies making promises to “find waldo” . . . for a fee.
According to Dr. Dannewar, overtures have been made by Ayabar Labs, Dorator Tech, Lexxor Intelligence and the SET Group. “I find it pretty disgusting,” said Dannewar. “I went looking for group problem-solving and all I got is group profit-seeking. If they want to help — well I released the file. Go ahead and help. There won’t be any contracts.”
To date, the only analysis of the audio has been offered by data recover expert Jalil Aq’Tamm who felt the issue was one of “deep sound” — but had not been able to decode any potential underlying datasteam. Another entity who refused to provide a name suggested they were focusing on a “spread spectrum” analysis.
Subspace Transceiver Repaired Pilots finally rallied to repair the subspace transceiver in The Narrow Canal, and Solrain pilots are once again happily receiving KTRI broadcasts. There is still no word on how the transceiver was damaged in the first place.
Octs Debate DSS History The Octavius Emperors from Ares Prime and Martius seem to be having a dispute about the historical fragment recently found on a DSS. What is being lost in the whole “whose sword is bigger” debate is the fact that this thing might be one of the oldest pieces of history we have found to-date and may even hint at our roots. Continue reading →
(Octavius Core Station) Emperor Venticus has released a statement regarding the DSS that was deciphered roughly two weeks ago, that appeared to refer to early Octavius.
It gratifies us that another bit of the great history of Octavius has been unveiled. The story fragment on the DSS deciphered by pilot Nafcon tells a story of our very earliest days – around 2700 BT. While we have no records of the admiral mentioned in this text or the “8th Expedition” – what appears to be clear is that this admiral was instrumental in establishing the beginning of our empire, and he did it here … on Ares Prime. Our historians believe that pieces of this story may have actually contributed to one of our greatest legends – the legend of the Golden Emperor.
We have already begun negotiations with Dorator Tech to be provided access to any further, related information it may find. We encourage pilots to search Octavius Shore for DSS, since this is where this particular find was made.
