The (Unregulated) Update

Oct Core Bombarded by Flux

Oct Core was attacked by Conflux on 7.5 with the station sustaining some minor damage.  Apparently the Conflux attacked outbuildings first, but there has been not official report on any damage there.  They also attacked the station and were trying to do something at the ETP.  This was the largest station attack we have seen in quite some time.  You have to wonder if this was random or if Flux aggression will be ramping up.

Chatty AI

For the first time in a very long time we’ve been hearing from the Amananth Station AI (aka DPDQ).  First in relation to repairing the production for the “inhibitor” (aka antiflux); and later when it apparently scolded RazorsKiss for having someone blow up an old New Dawn area in the station.  The messages were transmitted in hex — which just seems lazy to me.

STCC Establishes “Hall of Fame”

by Yaz Shanndar

(Solrain Core)  Premier Demeter Garreth announced today that the STCC has decided to establish a new Reconstruction Days holiday tradition.  Each year, they will open up a poll to name a Solrain pilot — past or present — to the Solrain Hall of Fame.

“We have had so many pilots making contributions of all kinds,” said Garreth.  “It’s time we put their names in lights.”

The poll is OPEN NOW so the STCC encourages you to log in and record your vote by clicking the image below.

“All you do is go to the poll, enter your vote  and enter your call-sign.  It takes about 30 seconds,” said Premier Garreth.  “And while the nominee must be Solrain, ANY pilot for ANY faction is welcome to register a vote!” she added.

The poll will be open through midnight on Sunday 118.7.8.

Conflux Invade Oct Core

by Thane Carios

(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.”

Mallow Scores Easy Win in Speaker Race

UUNN Newswire

(Solrain Core)  The STCC has announced that Arbin Mallow, the long-time member of the STCC, has won the race for Speaker for Soria by a wide margin, taking 67% of the vote with an extremely-light voter turnout.

Mallow, who has been a member of the STCC since 086, ran a very quiet campaign riding the strength of his substantial connections and political capitol to victory over Aeolsah Radic — the long time aide to Demeter Garreth who was named interim Speaker when Garreth took over as Premier on 6.1.

 

Polls Open for Soria Speaker Election

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ)  The polls are now open for Citizens of Solrain to elect a new Speaker for the planet Soria:

Although Aeolsah Radic is technically the incumbent, since he has held the post since Demeter Garreth took over as Premier on 118.5.1, Mallow is a long-time STCC Member with extremely strong political ties.

The poll will remain open until 118.7.1.

Amananth Mission Completed. DPDQ Breaks Silence.

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ)  Shortly after the completion of the recent Amananth mission (simply described as “Supplies are needed …”) UUNN received this brief dataset from DPDQ, the AI controller of Amananth Station:

57652061 7474656d 70742074 6f20636f 64652066 69782070 726f6475 6374696f 6e20666f 72207468 6520696e 68696269 746f722e 20205375 63636573 7320756e 63657274 61696e2e 20205465 73747320 77696c6c 20626567 696e206f 6e636520 72657061 69727320 616c6c20 746f2074 68652066 6163696c 69747920 61726520 636f6d70 6c657465 2e

It translates as …

we attempt to code fix production for the inhibitor. success uncertain. can tests begin once repairs all pilots to facility are complete.

It seems apparent that this, and the recent mission, relate to an attempt to re-start Antiflux production.
