Funding Denied for ShaiDen Project

by Yaz Shanndar

(Solrain Core)  In a surprising outcome, the funding applied-for by Conflux expert Professor Athena ShaiDen of Sutonia University was denied by Sorian Bank.  The loan, which most expected to be granted, was to help mass-produce a special kind of narrow-beam scanner ShaiDen had developed.  The scanner was used to take readings from Conflux infestations — with the goal of finding better ways to destroy — of even deter them.

Professor ShaiDen was unavailable for comment, but Carlo Adiar, TRI Corporation’s Director of Conflux Studies spoke out, “This is just incredible.  Professor ShaiDen and I do not always see eye to eye, but this was a no-brainer.  And the 500 million credits she was looking for is just a drop in the bucket for Sorian.  Her reputation alone should have been plenty of collateral — but she had a working prototype!  I don’t get it.” Continue reading

Quants say Hyperial is Secretly Developing GenMod Program

by Thane Carios

(Quantar Core)  The Quantar Holy Office of the Tahirs is claiming that they have evidence that Hyperial has been secretly pursuing a genetic modification program with the goal of rebuilding its fleet of jump-capable ships.

“We now know what Hyperial’s secret faction missions have been all about,” said First Tahir Penjia Neamru.  “We already knew that they were testing jump-ship technology, because of the Rauder-1 drone.  Now we know that they have also been secretly pursuing their own genetic modification program.  The goal is clear.  Rebuilding their fleet .”

Quantar claims that the Hyperial program is code named “Chrysalis” and that it began over two years ago, with testing beginning early this year.  The Tahirs have also released an image (seen below) allegedly taken inside the Chrysalis GenMod lab.  It is likely that is was this information that was taken from Hyperial last declared to be contraband last Wednesday.  It is unclear whether Octavius was working with Quantar to obtain and publish the information.

The (Unregulated) Update

Subspace Transceiver Repaired
Pilots finally rallied to repair  the subspace transceiver in The Narrow Canal, and Solrain pilots are once again happily receiving KTRI broadcasts.  There is still no word on how the transceiver was damaged in the first place.

Octs Debate DSS History
The Octavius Emperors from Ares Prime and Martius seem to be having a dispute about the historical fragment recently found on a DSS.  What is being lost in the whole “whose sword is bigger” debate is the fact that this thing might be one of the oldest pieces of history we have found to-date and may even hint at our roots.

Pilots Rally to Repair Transceiver

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ)  Pilots rallied yesterday to repair the damaged Subspace Transceiver in The Subspace Tansceiver - Narrow CanalNarrow Canal, to try and restore KTRI broadcasts to Solrain pilots.  According to our reports, most of the work was done by four pilots:  hifly, JokeR_GdI, Nafcon and Valmagier.  All four have received the Keval’s Thanks award for their efforts.

Now that the transceiver is fully repaired, TRI Corporation is working on reactivating it to restore broadcasts.  It is still unknown what originally caused the damage to the transceiver.

Sol Pilots are Missing KTRI

by Thane Carios

(Solrain Core Station) Solrain Pilots have been reporting that there is a problem with their KTRI broadcasts while other factions’ pilots have reported no problems whatsoever.

“Well this was expected,” said Tristan Kamihira, TRI Corp. Director of Sector Assets.  “We had the problem a few weeks ago with gibberish being broadcast across the entire KTRI network.  The root of the problem was traced to the damaged Subspace Transceiver in the Narrow Canal.  Until that is repaired, Solrain pilots will not be able to receive KTRI broadcasts.”

TRI Corporation has put out a request that pilots — especially Solrain pilots — help with this repair effort.

Yes, I’m late this week.  It has been a slow news week and I was HOPING something interesting would happen.  But alas …

Dorator Signs DSS Agreement with Hyperial
In the not-at-all-surprising category, Dorator Tecnologies R&D signed an agreement with Hyperial late last week, where Dorator will be receiving all DSS and UCs sold by pilots to Hyperial station. Dorator calls it a win-win since Hyperial was not using the artifacts for anything and Dorator will get them for a very attractive price.

Engineers Quietly Leave Amananth
With absolutely no fanfare (and by this I mean they sneaked out), the multi-corporate team that had been working at Amananth to help figure out how to repair the Antiflux CP, has disbanded and been transported back to their respective home spaces.  TRI Corporation officials insist that this does not mean they are giving up.  They simply felt that it was not necessary to be on-site at this point — an felt the team needed to refresh and reboot.
