(UUNN HQ)TRI-SEC announced today that is is calling off the manhunt for the clone-pilot -Gent-. Those who participated in the manhunt that resulted in the capture of the other two clones — Gent (Solrain) and _Gent_ (Octavius) — have been rewarded as follows:
Two Tache’s Crest medals have been awarded to pilot Aion for the capture and arrest of the Gent and _Gent_ clones. Aion also received 2 million credits in bounty reward from Octavius.
The new Paladins Pride pin has been awarded to Kefla (two pins) for his assistance in pursuing and apprehending the clones; and to GrimGriz for providing intel on a clone’s location. GrimGriz also received 250,000credits for that information.
The Office of Governor Hasdrubar Carto has also announced that it is discontinuing its bounty and information offers on the one clone who has not been apprehended.
(UUNN HQ) The recently-detained “Gent clones” escaped while being escorted by a TRI-SEC team under contract with Governor Carto. The team was escorting the detainees from the hangar deck on Octavius Core to an off-station Inquisition facility when,
Octavius Core, main hangar deck
according to witnesses, there were multiple explosions on the hangar deck. When the thick smoke cleared and order was restored Gent, -Gent- and _Gent_ had disappeared. Their ships, which had been disarmed and disabled, were somehow launched. It is unknown whether they were also rearmed.
“This was a well-coordinated plan,” said Solder Ronin, Commandant of TRI Security. “We had those ships disabled and locked down so there was inside help. We’ll be reviewing hangar logs and surveillance to determine how this happened.”
In order to better track the fugitives, TRI-SEC has arranged with Solrain and Quantar for minimal bounties to be assigned. Continue reading →
(Octavius Core Station) Two days ago there was some strange news that came out of Hasdrubar Carto’s Office on Octavius Core. They were calling for the pilot Gent to turn himself in, but they never indicated why. Not even a trumped-up fake-news kind of charge. He had a -6 PR with Oct, but we’ve all been there at some point. Didn’t seem to be worth all of the fuss.
Then yesterday, this same pilot started broadcasting gibberish on F5:
Some suggested that these are some kind of distress calls and I don’t think they’re wrong. I contacted the Security Office on Oct Core to ask whether he had turned himself in yet, but they did not respond. Continue reading →
(UUNN HQ) The following statement was released by the Office of Governor Hasdrubar Carto:
*** FROM THE OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR *** *** FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ***
Governor Hasdrubar Carto is calling for the surrender of the pilot going by the callsign ‘Gent.’ He is to cease all piloting activities and should present himself at Octavius Core. Gent is guaranteed safe conduct, but only if he surrenders himself within 48 hours. Anyone who interferes with the successful surrender will be dealt with severely.
No additional information was provided and the office of Governor Carto declined to comment further. Pilot Gent is Solrain Specialist with a slightly negative (-6) political status with Octavius. It is unclear why the Governor would call for his surrender. Additional details will be provided as they become available.
(Octavius Core) Multiple explosions reverberated across Octavius Core Sector today at approximately 21:15 UTC. According to the Office of Oct Core Governor Hasdrubar Carto, there were no fatalities or injuries as the facility was not functional and has been awaiting needed service for almost a year.
“I wouldn’t be so sure no one was killed,” said station maintenance worker Danu Seneca. “That recycler has been infested with squatters, smugglers and who knows what else — for years. Best to blow it up completely, if you ask me.”
The Governor’s Office said it does not know what the next steps will be for the facility.
(Octavius Core) Octavius Core Station sustained fairly significant damage today when it was attacked by Conflux drones and sentients.
“The attack started around 22:00 when we received alerts that some of the outbuildings were being hit,” said Oct Core Station Governor Hasdrubar Carto. “Then there were several direct nuke-hits on the station. Our sensors showed quite a few conflux in-sector, including C0s, 3s, 7s, 14s — and probably others. There were a lot.”
“One C14 was doing something at the energy transfer port. I don’t think it was able to damage anything, but we have crews out inspecting the port right now. It’s a good thing Axiomoon and Utanmadan showed up when they did. I think things could have been much worse.”
According to Carto, the damage was limited to some external armor and one cargo bay, which took a direct nuke hit. That bay had contained BCUs, Dreams, Featherfires, Flashfires, Lances, Mauls, Nitrogen and POS Markets.
“I don’t mean to downplay the loss,” said Governor Carto. “But it could have been much worse. Most of these things can be replaced easily.”
Octavius Core (TRI-FP) – At approximately 8:00 pm last night, a Conflux Sentient raiding party, led by C13-S ‘Kamikaze’ and associated escorts attacked Octavius Core station, causing major damage to market stocks.
“Octavius Core station stocks were almost totally destroyed, “stated Governor Hasdrubar Carto. “Despite the total lack of advanced warning from TRI, our hard working engineers brought production back online within minutes, and we expect station stocks to recover to adequate levels quickly.
“Octavius cannot continue to suffer these attacks, compounded with the apathy shown by the TRI Executive Council and their Conflux Studies Division. If TRI continues to refuse to enhance early warning systems, Octavius shall be left with no alternative but to take matters into its own hands.”
In related news, Quantar medical staff at Corridor have indicated that Governor Sathama Randi has been upgraded to stable condition, and is expected to be back at work within weeks.
Corridor (TRI-FP) – Quantar Corridor station governor Sathama Randi is in critical condition today after a significant conflux attack against both Corridor and Octavius Core.
Shortly after 21:10 ET, sentients were identified as present in Outer Third, and headed towards Corridor station. A defense force was quickly assembled, and managed to box the sentients in at Outer Third. During this battle, a second conflux attack force was identified in Vorgus2, and headed for Octavius Core station. Octavian pilots responded to this new attack, and prevented the sentients from leaving Vorgus2. With sentient activity subsiding at Corridor, the Quantar force left the area to assist Octavian forces. This lull in the battle appeared to be no more than a ploy by conflux forces, to lure TRI pilots out of position. With Corridor left undefended, a pair of C17-S “Lamprey” sentients launched a sneak attack, destroying market stocks. A secondary explosion within the station collapsed the ceiling of Governor Randi’s office, inflicting serious injury to her.
“I am grateful for the efforts of all pilots who prevented loss to Octavius Core,” commented Governor Hasdrubar Carto. “The losses suffered at Corridor and the injury of Governor Randi is unfortunate. While Quantar and Octavius have had their differences in the past, if my staff, or I, can be of any assistance to our Quantar neighbors, they have but to ask”
