On 120.6.19, pilots reported unusual spawns in GVB . . .
. . . and then an GBS-gate infestation disappeared in front of them without them launching a missle!
There were suggestions that Lithium could be involved . . . so who knows . . . but my sources say Aeghwhyn and DUBERANGER will be receiving Flux Buster patches for scaring-off an infestation with their mere presence.
(UUNN HQ) It took over a week, but pilots finally cleared the last super-infestation yesterday from Quantar Gate. It is estimated that approximately 800 nuclear missiles — including 20 specially-modified Maul missiles — were needed to complete the task.
Pilots Andanwen, Cat4Par, Cono, Donnie, Flowbar, GrimJack, HitGirl, Kanthakeh, Koopmans and Rail69 have all been nominated for FluxBuster awards. Donnie, Flowbar and Rail69 have also been nominated for the Defender of the Barrier medal for their particularly important roles in taking down these infestations.
Prof. Athena ShaiDen was originally nominated, but she requested to be taken off the list, saying that “it was not appropriate” for a person in her position.
(UUNN HQ) A new “FluxBuster” patch has been unveiled to recognize pilot participation in significant efforts to destroy Conflux Hives, clear Conflux Swarms and drive off Conflux Sentients. The patch can be awarded multiple times and pilots are encouraged to display them proudly on their flight-suits.
The first pilots to receive the patch are Aeghwhyn, Alafan, Don_Brasco, StopSign and Tallo — who combined to clear eight infestations scattered throughout Solrain space and disrupting trade.
