Sol Scientist Believes He Has Identified Ancient Signal

by Thane Carios

(Solrain Core)  Dr. Thane Dannewar announced today that he has isolated what he believes may be a transmission from the lost planet Solrain.

“I know this just sounds like static to most, but I have been able to specifically extract this as a unique signal — distinct from the cosmic background noise,” said Dannewar.  “I have no idea what might be contained in this signal at this point. I’m releasing it so that others may be able to help ‘group-think’ a way to confirm that this truly is a broadcast of some sort — and if it is — figure out how to extract the data it contains.”

Dr. Dannewar is the grandson of Cameron Dannewar, best known for his role in the Thrice Seven — but who also known for his passion for uncovering the fate of the planet Solrain, which was lost in The Great Collapse.

STCC Provides Details on Name the Heroes Event

UUNN Newswire

(Cornea Station) STCC’s initial Reconstruction Days holiday schedule did not provide any details about its Name the Heroes event — simply saying that it was a “trivia-type event.”  As it turns out it is — and it’s a very fitting topic for Reconstruction Days.

Almost everyone knows the story of The Thrice Seven.  They were the seven pilots sent by each faction to test-pilot TRI’s first single-pilot jump-ships.  Many had auspicious careers before and after this test-pilot duty.  Some had tragic ends.

For 5,000,000 credits and a Seeker of Knowledge medal, name at least five of Solrain’s members of The Thrice SevenName all seven and win a PCS-4, too!

Answers should be submitted to STCC@tri-subspace.net by Saturday 117.7.8 at 24:00 UTC.

Library Sends out Request for Thrice-Seven Info

The Sarath V Memorial Library has broadcast a request for documents, or any other information relating to the “Thrice Seven.”

“Since the recent recovery of Enkido Kahn’s log fragment, there has been a surge in requests for details about the Thrice Seven and we find our resources — both in the Library and the Databank — to be sorely lacking,” said Head Librarian H.E. Jenkins.  “We are reaching out to everyone for either documented information like news clippings, pictures, books — or even oral history and legend . . . just tell us what you remember.”

Submit your information on the Thrice Seven HERE.

The Thrice Seven were some of the most memorable heroes of The Reconstruction Initiative.  It was made up of seven pilots each from Octavius, Quantar and Solrain – primarily explorers and test pilots.  Some, like Enkido Kahn, had already made a name for themselves before becoming part of this legendary group.  But together, as the original TRI test-pilots and later as the explorers of farspace, they became legend.

 

UUNN Time-Mistake Causes Ceremony Confusion

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ) Today’s ceremony for the transfer of the Enkido Kahn Log DSS and the awarding of the Emperor’s Emissary medals was tarnished by a mistake by UUNN who published the ceremony time as 16:00 UTC, when it should have been 15:00 UTC. because of this error, Hammer-BS — discoverer and decrypter of the DSS missed the ceremony entirely.

“We feel horrible about this,” said UUNN Founder and Publisher, Fence. “Especially for Hammer-BS. He played a huge role in this history-making affair, and he deserved to be there for the honors. This won’t happen again.”

Since many people missed the ceremony, the following is a transcript of the Emperor’s statements.

In-Station during the transfer of the DSS

This moment is historic for our people, and all I can say is “thank you.” I know you are not from Octavius . . . and you were not out there particularly looking for our history. Nonetheless, the two of you, because of your efforts and talents, have done something special for Octavius and something very special for me .

So I want you to know how personally grateful I am – not as an Emperor, but as someone who, a little boy, idolized Enkido Kahn and who read stories about him and emulated him in play with his friends.

Please go ahead and initiate the transfer.

Now let’s head outside to do the “official” stuff.
Awards Ceremony Outside Outpost Station
Welcome Octavius! Welcome Quantar!  . . . and Solrain.

Aveg et Honore!

Today we celebrate both glory and honor.

We celebrate the glory of one of the great heroes of Octavius, whose voice has come back to us through the ages. We honor the pilots who have made this possible.

In the year 38AT, Enkido Kahn – one of the great heroes of Octavius and a revered son of Cinatus – made one of the great discoveries of our era.  He made a decision to divert from his mission of scanning anomalies for jumpgate construction and investigate a dim star . . .  He took a great risk, and he changed history with his discovery of Amananth.

Because of the efforts and talents of two pilots, Hammer-BS and Jalil, his voice has come echoing back to us through the years . . . from a time on the eve of his great discovery.  We hear his determination, his dreams and his doubt. And our hero becomes a REAL person to us.  And so today, we celebrate the reality of Enkido Kahn and we honor Hammer-BS and Jalil.

To that end… It is my honor and my pleasure, to present the Emperor’s Emissary medal to Hammer-BS and Jalil.  Their efforts have made Enkido Kahn alive to us again. And their generosity bring the remnants of his log back to us so that we may remember and honor him better.

Aveg et Honore to Enkido Kahn!
Aveg et Honore to Hammer-BS!
Aveg et Honore to Jalil!

There was also a bit of excitement shortly after the Emperor had docked at Outpost when a pirate name Huzzah made his way toward outpost Sector and was fought primarily by pilot Clanlord and the station’s defense drones, but with Jalil actually landing the kill-shot.

Enkido Kahn DSS to be Returned to Octavius

by Kedra Brenari

(Cina, Cinatus) Consul Nestro Zagabi announced today that the DSS that was recently found in Amananth space (The Split), and had its data recovered and decrypted by Quantar pilots, will be returned to Cinatus – the birthplace of the Octavius hero Enkido Kahn.

“This DSS is an Imperial treasure,” said Zagabi.  “It contained the log entry from one of our great modern heroes, just weeks before one of his greatest accomplishments.  We are arranging to have the DSS delivered to Emperor Cineon this Saturday (116.3.19).  The Emperor will be personally receiving the DSS and speaking to the pilots who discovered it and recovered its precious message.”

“Emperor Cineon has also made the unprecedented decision to immediately present the Emperor’s Emissary award (which is usually only presented during the Feast of the Fallen holiday) to pilots Hammer-BS and Jalil – both for making this unparalleled find, and for being so accommodating and generous in returning it to us.  We welcome anyone who would like to join in Outpost Station sector us in celebrating this great find, and in honoring these two pilots who have made this all possible.”

Emperor Cineon is expected to be arriving at Outpost station around 16:00 UTC  with the transfer of the artifact shortly afterwards.  The presentation of the Emperor’s Emissary awards will take place outside Outpost Station after the DSS has been transferred and the Emperor has had a chance to speak privately with Hammer-BS and Jalil.

DSS Yields Thrice-Seven Log Entry!

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ) Just hours after the dataset from a PC-DSS1 “Rare” was recovered and released, it has been fully decrypted and appears to be a log entry from Octavius hero Enkido Kahn dated 038.3.5 — just two months before his discovery of Amananth.

E.Khan Log – 038.3.5

We have been away from home now for two and a half years … for us. At home it has been more than four years.

We started the journey in our “77” intending to scout potential anomalies for new gates in sector EK.033.1.0. We left the warmth of Usil for this dark place and while there were anomalies to examine along our path, I decided to head directly for the pale bluish star three light years away. We have spent our two and a half years traversing this last parsec and it has been the most difficult voyage I have ever undertaken. This was the emptiest of voids and the crew, excited in the very beginning, has been restless and difficult since then. Six months into the journey I ordered eight of them into stasis chambers to preserve our supplies, and I watch my back carefully as the other three are in the mood to revolt. We begin preparing for deceleration in two weeks and I will have to awaken the rest.

I have determined that a single planet orbits the dim star, and while I have hopes that we will find people there, there is no way to tell at this range. I pray to my ancestors that my gamble here will pay off. In my mind’s eye I see celebrations and parades when we return to Cinatus … but it could just as well be a security escort and a prison cell awaiting me.

The data recovery was done by pilot Jalil — formerly an engineer at Ayabar Labs, and now self-employed at Jalil’s DSS Salvage & Recovery.  Decryption was performed by pilot Hammer-BS, who also originally found the DSS in The Split and gave it to Jalil Aq’tamm for data recovery.  The log is in pristine condition with absolutely no corruption and is a rare peek into the real life of a legendary pilot.

After his discovery of Amananth, Enkido Kahn would go on to become a test pilot for the first single-pilot jump ships as a member of the “Thrice Seven.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emperor Cineon kicks off Feast of the Fallen with a BANG!

UUNN Newswire

(Outpost Station) Today in a rare act for a member of the royalty, Emperor Cineon personally flew up to Outpost station from the planet Cinatus below. He remained in Outpost sector space for nearly an hour conducting the opening ceremony for this year’s Feast of the Fallen, the Recitation of the Heroes, where the name of an Octavian warrior or hero from the past is called out aloud and the hero’s accomplishments and victories are recalled.

Early in the ceremony, Jellyfish appeared in the space around the station, followed by an attack from a Sentient c9 Kraken. The Sentient seemed to target the Emperor’s Dragon heavy fighter directly. Pilots Shadowhart, -Mabasha-, Filzi, and Mas-0 were all in the area providing support,  however it was Emperor Cineon himself that brought down the Conflux interloper! Once defeated, the Sentient did not return, and the Emperor, somewhat invigorated by the action, resumed his speech.

Various Fallen (and “Fallen Away”) Heroes of Octavius were named by Cineon and many other pilots over f5:chat including: Quinctius II (Cineon’s father, assassinated some 16 years ago), Enkido Khan (Thrice Seven Explorer who discovered Amananth), Savo, The Tyke, Lxholla, WileE, Ridgeway, SHUG, BladeR, Magnus-Ex, Fellblade, {ND}Falcon, Razorskiss, Odiche, Zaltys, Havik, Wyx, and others.

The Emperor concluded the ceremony by docking at Outpost and buying every pilot docked an Oct Lite for several toasts.
