(UUNN HQ) In a very tightly-contested vote, Hammer-BS edged out Nessos for this year Shahir Assad Award. This is only the second time this medal has been awarded, the first being in 118 when the award went to Tezrend. Other pilots receiving votes were Cagle, Jalil and Spork. Two votes were not counted — one being for a Solrain pilot and the other for a pilot not on the duty roster.
The Shahir Assad (“The Shining Lion”) is awarded to Quantar pilots who have been honored by their peers for a lifetime of exceptional service to The Children of Hamalzah.
(UUNN HQ) Quantar has opened voting for its prestigious Shahir Assad award. The following was released by the Office of the Tahirs:
We Quantar are walkers of many paths: miners and philosophers … zealots and diplomats … warriors, scientists, evangelists. Each have their place within our society and within our history. The Fa’hil Memta calls on all people of Quantar to vote for a Quantar Masafiir (jump-pilot) – past or present – a Shahir Assad, the shining lion, embodying the very best of our culture, our religion and our race.
*** VOTE HERE ***
Voting is limited to the people of Quantar and all votes must be in by midnight (UTC) on last last day of this years Miners Days holiday — 120.9.6 .

What is Going On?
There have been many many missions relating to the non-cooling asteroids, but we have heard results from exactly ONE. Is there some kind of secret agenda happening here? Or is everyone too embarrassed to admit that after all is said and done, they still have no idea what is causing the “high entropy state” in the asteroids? There’s been a bit of frustration building in the jump pilot community and I’m pretty sure much of it could be resolved with just a little bit of communication. Continue reading

(Quantar Core) Although the asteroid cooling problem seemed to overshadow this year’s holiday, there were a couple of activities.
The first one was an opportunity for pilots to vote for a new Quantar award — the Shahir Assad or “Shining Lion.” The award is for lifetime achievements in service of Quantar. As with the Solrain Hall of Fame, the voting ended in a tie between Tezrend and Ambrosius, so a randomized choice was made — and the winner was Tezrend (aka Tesrend)! Votes were also received for tom-t and the late FS-Falcon.
The other holiday contest was QuanTrivia where there were four entrants getting all five answers correct and winning a Cesium Medal, a CM4 and 1 million credits! Congratulations to the winners: Hammer-BS, Gander, ML-Death and Clanlord!
The awarding of medals and prizes should be completed over the next few days. Continue reading
