(Solrain Core Station) With Solrain’s traditional celebration of The Reconstruction Days looming next week, and with the clash over the confiscation of the Tache Uzelin’s empty ship still fresh in everyone’s mind, TRI has announced plans to issue a few of its own awards on Sunday, 114.07.06, following the Solrain awards event. TRI’s statement indicated that the awards will focus on pilots who fly for the benefit of all the factions rather than just their home faction.
This year’s Reconstruction Days festival is being chaired by Speaker Demeter Garreth of the STCC, who’s re-election campaign for an unprecedented 10th term of Speakership is set to kick off during the holiday. She is well known among many pilots and their dirtside relations as “the pilot’s Speaker,” a moniker she claimed during the closing days of the last election cycle (by stating as-yet-unfulfilled intentions to become a jump pilot herself), which according to most pundits, enabled her to snatch a victory from certain defeat at the polls. We caught up with Speaker Garreth, who had this to say about TRI’s announcement:
Frankly, what TRI Corp is trying to do here is really a non-issue. Pilots are not stupid–they know The Reconstruction Days has been a standing Solrain tradition for nearly a thousand years, since the early days of the SRI. The attention seekers at The Corp are desperate to find relevance for themselves in the post-TRI era, and The Corp tossing out some awards to some (albeit very deserving) pilots, won’t be a distraction from our plans at all. Solrain is not necessarily at odds with multi-factional pilots, or those of the other factions. We hope pilots of every cut will attend this year’s Reconstruction Days. I assure you, I’ve got something up my sleeve to announce that will surely not disappoint.
“The Reconstruction Days” is a three day festival that celebrates the Solrain Reconstruction Initiative, with one day for each of the SRI’s “Three Laws of Pioneering” which later formed the basis for the (now defunct) TRI Charter.
