Rismore Found Dead

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ)  TRI-SEC is reporting that remains found and reported to them by a pilot on 120.4.27 have been confirmed to be those of Berl Rismore, who famously ran for Mayor of Barnard (and lost) in 118.  The remains were found in the access port of the MagnesiumBerl Nanoproducer in Hyperial Station sector

Although Rismore was last heard from just two months ago, promoting a Hyperial Faction mission, TRI’s forensics experts insist that based on their study of the remains, he has been dead for at least twelve months.  Rismore, age 33, was also a member of The Directorate.

TRI-SEC has turned the case over to Hyperial Station Security (HSS) for further investigation

Explosions and Confusion Lead to Escape from Octavius Core

By Thane Carios

(UUNN HQ) The recently-detained “Gent clones” escaped while being escorted by a TRI-SEC team under contract with Governor Carto.  The team was escorting the detainees from the hangar deck on Octavius Core to an off-station Inquisition facility when,

Octavius Core, main hangar deck

according to witnesses, there were multiple explosions on the hangar deck. When the thick smoke cleared and order was restored Gent, -Gent- and _Gent_ had disappeared.  Their ships, which had been disarmed and disabled, were somehow launched.  It is unknown whether they were also rearmed.

“This was a well-coordinated plan,” said Solder Ronin, Commandant of TRI Security.  “We had those ships disabled and locked down so there was inside help.  We’ll be reviewing hangar logs and surveillance to determine how this happened.”

In order to better track the fugitives, TRI-SEC has arranged with Solrain and Quantar for minimal bounties to be assigned. Continue reading

Infestation Epidemic!

UUNN Newswire

Corridor Audit Results Released

UUNN Newswire

TRI-Corporation has released the results of its audit of all activity on Corridor Station on 119.10.5:

TRI Corporation’s Security (TRI-SEC) and Station Ops (TRI-SSM) divisions completed their investigations into the RF Transceiver production issue.  We have determined that the Faction Mission did, indeed, result in the delivery of the commodities required to produce RFTs.  We have also determined that RFT manufacturing did take place.  The reason why the Faction Mission did not appear to successfully result in RFT manufacture is that the items manufactured appeared to be immediately purchased, and therefore did not appear on Market Tracking systems.

The remaining question revolves around the purchaser.  Systems show the purchasing ship as an Octavius tow with the transponder XTR-v1059.  That transponder was registered to a ship destroyed in one of the very early conflux attack in 100.6 AT.

We are continuing our investigation, focusing on possible system-tampering, and remain confident that we will identify the true purchaser.

 

What Happened to the Transceivers?

by Ares Kiden

(Corridor Station)  Questions are being asked after the Fa’hil Memta called for a mission to haul RF Transceiver supplies to Corridor Station — primarily because the mission RF Transceiversdoesn’t seem to have worked.

“The mission was completed in a day,” said Station Governor Sathama Randi, looking like he has not gotten much sleep  “But somewhere between the hangar floor and the RFT manufacturing unit, things just . . . disappeared!”

According to Gov. Randi, the mission called for pilots to haul-in 600 units of Electronics; 500 units of Germanium;  600 units of Magnetics;  600 units of Silver; and 1,200 units of Water.

Station Ops personnel continue to search for the missing commodities and TRI-SEC has initiated an audit of arrival and departure logs.

 

Black-Market Factory Shut Down

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ)  TRI-Security, under contract from Tens & Piney shut down a black market SportLP power plant factory on Lothars Landing today after it was exposed in a news clip by pilot GrimGriz.

“It was not much of an operation there,” said TRI-SEC officer Layton ‘Scorch’ Morrison.  “The perps took off and we destroyed the equipment they had there.  It took maybe 15 minutes.  Not sure I’d use on of those SportLPs.”

It’s not clear why black-marketers would select the SportLP as it is inexpensive and fairly plentiful.

Former -=DSA=- Boss Attacks Quantar Facility; References Hyperial Leader

(Quantar Core Station)  On a day when Hyperial was honoring its former President, Dr. Kelvin Rauder, pilot GrimGriz went into Quantar space with pirate tags . . . destroyed the already-damaged Duelist factory in Omni IV  . . . and then publicly made the following, somewhat cryptic, statement:

Many years ago, GrimGriz led the Dead Space Armada, one of Solrain’s premier factionalist squads.  But since then his checkered history has seen him flying Quantar colors with both The Brotherhood and AQM, and now — apparently — supporting Hyperial in a one-person squad named “Lost s0ns of H.”   Continue reading

Prosthetics Smuggler Dies Avoiding Capture

UUNN Newswire

A smuggler flying a modified Phaeton fast-transport died today while being pursued by TRI Security  (TRI-SEC) forces.  TRI-SEC had scanned him and found him to be carrying two units of illegal Prosthetics.  The chase continued through Dark Gateway, Primus Point, Arkans Cloud, The Outer Edge and The Outer Rim.

The smuggler’s ship hit a petal while exiting the Outer Rim gate towards The Rim.  For some reason — perhaps because of the ship’s illegal ship modifications — the LifePod(tm) did not separate and the pilot was killed.  The Solrain smuggler used the callsign Orico, though it is believed that this was a stolen transponder.

“Prosthetics activity seems to be on the rise again — especially out of Lothars,” said Solder Ronin, Commandant of TRI-SEC.  “Prices have skyrocketed and these smugglers are willing to take big risks for big profits.  But it won’t be worth it.  We will catch them.”
