(Quantar Core) While Hyperial has remained stone-silent, Quantar has been openly celebrating the destruction of the Rauder-1 drone jump-ship. The Holy Office of the Tahirs has just released the following statement:
Farishaba ‘at Hamalzah! Today we honor Valmagier, a highly-decorated Solrain Optimus, who successfully destroyed the Hyperial drone jump-ship Rauder-1 in Inner Cloud. Admittedly he struggled with the decision whether to destroy this ship or to report its location to our enemy. But Hamalzah was good and led our brother Hammer-BS to the location as well — which crystallized the decision for Valmagier.
For his efforts, Valmagier will receive the highest award we give to otherworlders — Quantar’s Flame. We hope he wears this as proudly as he wears his many other commendations. In addition, Valmagier will received the promised rewards of 20 millions credits and a CM-4 . . . as well as out most sincere thanks and deepest blessings.
And we would be remiss if we did not recognize Hammer-BS for his part in this as well. He is a loyal brother who works tirelessly for the good of Quantar … and for all. It was his presence that was ultimately the catalyst for the destruction of Rauder-1. Therefore, we are honored to present him with the Quantar’s Flame medal as well. Shalim, Brother!
(UUNN HQ) Hyperial today has finally provided some details regarding its Rauder-1 drone ship that has been broadcasting hex code on pilot channels over the last week.
We have run into some issues with our Rauder-1 testing program. One of the biggest challenges in this project is maintaining the datalink with the drone. The systems initially built by TRI were designed to handle pilot communications, but the amount of data transfer needed to remotely control a ship over large distances is quite a different matter.
We lost contact with Rauder-1 in Outer Cloud when it was returning from a test flight. We believe the gibberish code it is broadcasting is related to its malfunction.
We are initiating a Faction Mission to patrol several sectors. We encourage pilots to run these missions with 50K radars. If there are ANY sightings of the Rauder-1, please report it immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org

Sorry that I’ve been away a while. Here’s an update of some recent news . . .
Ship Broadcasts Repeated Gibberish
Pilots have reported that Rauder-1 has been periodically broadcasting hex code over the F5 global chat channel. Some pilots have replied, but have received no response. Rauder-1 is the test-drone which was originally tested by Hyperial on 117.4.14 (see article below).
New Timeline Resource
A new historical resource has been launched in a cooperative effort between TRI-Databank, the Sarath V Memorial Library and UUNN. The new resource is an interactive timeline, which updates the old JOSSH timeline and includes some interesting new functionality. It can be accessed HERE. Continue reading
