Priest Calls for Accountability

UUNN Newswire

(Khalar Fa’el, Quanus) Rabb Nost’avor, the Seneschal of The Temple of Roh in Khalar Fa’el, made a surprising statement today, clearly breaking ranks with the Tahirs.  “The Fa’hil Memta is supposed to be the ‘voice of our people.’  They are not supposed to be politicians, diplomats or warlords.  They are supposed to be conduits.”

“While Hyperial has been an adversary as long back as our memory travels, we have to live in the present — and I’m not sure that the majority of the people would support the recent actions,” said Nost’avor.  “It is conceivable that the destroyed research could have benefited Quantar.”

Tahirs Unveil New Award

UUNN Newswire

(Quantar Core)  After nearly two weeks of delays — and apparently some internal heated debates, the leaders of Quantar have announced that several pilots would be awarded for their support of the recent destruction of Hyperial’s jump-ship test program, and it’s (alleged) Genetic Modification research lab.

Chrysalis Campaign RibbonThe new award, the Chrysalis Campaign Ribbon, is being awarded to pilots who supported the extended campaign by Quantar — some of it apparently covert — to derail and destroy what Quantar is calling, Hyperial’s renewed attempts to circumvent the co-operative program developed by the other factions — and managed by TRI Corp. — for Genetic Modifications and jump-ships.

Recipients of this unique ribbon designed specifically for this “campaign” were:  Ambrosius, Blonder, Crackhead, Eismann, Hammer-BS, Jalil, Nereid, Roidrider and Valmagier — several of whom had recently been called “terrorists” by Hyperial Special Representative Dr. Viggio Ragne.

 

Quantar Breaks Silence

UUNN Newswire

(Quantar Core Station)  Third Tahir, Dr. Silar Tashawar made a statement today about the recent attack on Hyperial assets, breaking an unusual period of silence.

“Speaking strictly as Silar Tashawar — not as a member of the Fa’hil Memta — I want to express my admiration and gratitude for the work of  Ambrosius, Crackhead, Eismann, Hammer-BS, Nereid and Roidrider.

These pilots carried out a mission at our direction, and successfully completed it.  Although we attempted to maintain strict secrecy, they survived multiple ambush attempts and successfully destroyed the ‘Chrysalis’ Genetic Modifications lab that Hyperial had secretly constructed within the Phosphorous factory.

“These pilots are heroes, not terrorists.  I now call on my fellow Tahirs to join with me in giving them the official recognition they absolutely deserve.”

Dr. Tashawar is the newest member of the Fa’hil Memta.  After the assassination of Queliar Neamru, the Qua’ it tahir elected Tashawar as the new Third Tahir on 111.3.18.

The (Unregulated) Update

unregulated-updateVol I, No. 7 by Ares Kiden

Well I went on holiday … and I stayed a lot longer than expected.  But my mom finally kicked me out so I’m back with another UPDATE!

Pilots Stay Away in Droves
The holiday crowds were in stealth-mode for this year’s Reconstruction Days with minimal participation in the organized events (“minimal” is a generous term here).  Some blame was put on the numerous protests of the recent Speaker’s election but it’s hard to believe that was the sole reason.  I really liked the “What’s Your Story” contest about The Henge.  I guess I should have entered.  I would have WON.  (My theory is that it was a VERY ancient, VERY huge trampoline.)

Landmark Election
Well the recent Solrain election for the Speaker’s Chair for Amanra was a landmark in a number of ways.  A long-time incumbent was unseated.  TWO challengers ended up tie in the popular vote, forcing a runoff in the STCC – which has not happened in a long time.  Supporters of Verhal have hit the streets in droves, with protests in boroughs and cities across all three planets.  While there has been no violence, there’s been unrest-a-plenty.  Protesters have contended that Hyperial was instrumental in influencing the election.

Quantar Celebrates Drone Destruction

UUNN Newswire

(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 Qyuantar's Flamecommendations.  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!

 

Quantar Calls for Drone Destruction

UUNN Newswire

(Quanus) The Holy Office of the Tahirs has released the following statement regarding the Hyperial Rauder-1 drone ship that has gone missing for about a week.

The Hyperial Government has been pursuing an obviously-secretive agenda since before the beginning of the year.  There have been Faction Missions with no explanation for their purpose.  Then suddenly they announce they have developed a drone jump-ship.  History has demonstrated that no good could possibly come of this.

Now Hyperial has asked everyone to help search for their drone and has offered a reward for assistance.  Quantar, too will as for assistance — both from its own pilot population and any others who would want to join.  We call for the destruction of the Rauder-1 drone, and will happily offer:

  • 20 million credits
  • an artifact of your choice from the following:  PCS-2, PCS-3 or CM-4
  • the Quantar’s Flame medal

In order to receive this award, you must send a screen shot of the kill message to:  quantar@tri-subspace.net

Based on the Hyperial search request, you should focus your efforts in the following sectors:  Main Gate, Inner Cloud and The Reaches.

Amananth Station Scan Planned

by Thane Carios

(UUNN HQ)  Prof. Athena ShaiDen has announced a plan to do a comprehensive scan of Amananth station.  The effort will begin at 15:00 UTC on Saturday 116.3.5.

“To achieve the objective, we need at least six pilots to participate,” said ShaiDen.  “Pilots must have a scanner and an Insight equipped.  We will meet at Evening’s End where I’ll provide each participant additional instructions, and then we’ll head to Amananth.  The actual scanning should take no more than half an hour.  I believe this will be much more effective than the high-res photographs being collected by Hyperial.”

Prof. ShaiDen recently took a sabbatical from her position at Sutonia University.  When asked about whether this mission is connected to her sabbatical, she declined comment.
