(Octavius Outpost) Dorator Technologies R&D has announced its new manufacturing and distribution strategy in the wake of the recent acquisition the manufacturing rights for several pieces of TRI Corp equipment.
“We have decided to focus most of our production and distribution from two locations,” said Malkev Dorator II, Sr. Vice President of Operations. “We will be focusing our weapons production at Octavius Outpost station. It will be the sole manufacturing outlet now for the Barrak, Cobra and the Flail. The only exception will be the Hammer, which will continue to be manufactured in Solrain at Wake station.”
“Regarding the new acquisitions,” said Dorator, “the Nightwatchman radar, TRIC-1 Capacitor, TRIP-1 power plant, Vector engine and Warden shield will now be manufactured exclusively at our Hyperial Manufacturing facility.”
“We are also very excited to announce that we will be testing the first non-faction manufacturing operation at Klatsches Hold where we will be making the Drop Tank refueling system.”
According to Dorator, the Drop Tank test facility is now operational. Other manufacturing changes should be moving forward over the next two weeks.
(Solrain Core) In a surprising move, Dorator R&D has purchased the rights to several pieces of equipment from TRI Corporation. They released the following joint statement:
TRI Corporation has agreed to sell all rights to its non-M.O.D.x. equipment lines to Dorator Technologies R&D effective today. This includes the DropTank refueling system, NightWatchman radar, TRIC-1 capacitor, TRIP-1 power plant, Vector engine and Warden shield.
The sale includes the intellectual property, manufacturing rights, certain manufacturing equipment and current unsold inventory.
Dorator will be coming up with a manufacturing and distribution strategy for its new equipment lines over the next 30 days.
Although the sale price was not part of the release, sources have indicated that it was approximately 4.2 billion credits. It is also believed that Sorian Bancorp provided significant financing for the purchase.
(Amananth) An apparent lucky hit caused much more significant damage than expected in yesterday’s sentient attack on Amananth Station. Some suspected that the attack was targeted at the nukes recently stockpiled on Amananth, but those items were not damaged. What was impacted was production of Flashfires, Guardians and Whistles — along with significant inventories of those same items plus Displacers as well.
Pilot Orka reported that DPDQ communicated the following message:
TRI Corporation issued the following statement regarding reports of unusual messages being broadcast on KTRI:
We have checked all systems and can find no issues, errors or security breaches. In order to investigate this further, we would need timely reports of exactly when messages are appearing. Images of the corrupted messages could also be helpful. Reports should be made to email@example.com.
(Quantar Core)Festival 118! came to a close with some mixed reviews. About 40 pilots were online over the four days of the holiday, but according to TRI Corporation, which sponsors the annual holiday events, pilots participation in contests and events was fairly disappointing across the board.
Conversely, there was some disappointment with TRI Corp’s event management as well. Pilot Sinver slammed the running of Friday’s Treasure Hunt event, saying:
“I was looking forward to this all,day while at work. I’ve wasted an entire evening because quite frankly, you couldn’t organize a piss up in a brewery. The clues were useless. Don’t even bother tomorrow. Just park the ship and forget about it. A great idea, really great idea terribly executed. My entire evening wasted. Thanks guys.”
Voting has opened today for the 118 Pilots’ Choice Awards. Medals for Combat, Mining, Conflux Hunting, Economy Support and Leadership will be awarded to pilots receiving the most votes — though there is a seven-vote minimum to qualify for an award. A Pilots’ Choice Award can be given to ANYregistered pilot and any pilot can vote — but just once.
ALL PILOTS are encouraged to participate by voting HERE
Any awards will be presented to pilots during this year’s Festival! celebration which will run from 118.11.22 through 118.11.25.
(UUNN HQ) It’s finally done. Thanks primarily to Clanlord, Gen.Tra and Morris, the targeted hives in sectors First Sight, C-3309, C-1101, C-1102,and C-2199 were destroyed and most of them have not re-spawned. And as predicted, asteroids that were staying in a high-entropy (heated) state after mining have finally begun to cool.
“Unfortunately, we still don’t know exactly what was causing the problem with mined asteroids not-cooling,” said Carlo Adiar, TRI Corp’s Assistant Director for Conflux Studies. “Nor do we know which hive(s) and sector(s) were the source. But we just didn’t have the luxury of taking the time to narrow it down one-by-one.” Continue reading →
