TRI Offers Reward for Missing Transport

by Thane Carios

(Solrain Core)  TRI Corporation announced today that it will offer a 3 million credit reward for the location of the missing transport ship (TRI-TRAN-1) with its cargo intact.

“We realize now that we need more help with this,” said Solder Ronin, Commandant of TRI-TRAN-1TRI Security.  “Our searches have turned up nothing.  As far as we can determine the ship should be somewhere between Inner Gyre and Light Lost — so that’s a lot of space to cover.

“The big concern is that shield and armor storms that frequent this area will destroy the ship before we can get to it, so time is critical.”

Ronin said that the ship is a standard remote-piloted Solrain tow with 500u of cargo.  He indicated that if the cargo was not intact, TRI Corp will pay a reward equal to 10% of the value of the remaining cargo.  If the ship is empty, it will pay 250,000 credits.

If you locate the ship, contact TRI-SEC immediately at tri@tri-subspace.net

TRI-SEC Releases Statement on Prosthetics Smuggler

UUNN Newswire

(Solrain Core) TRI-SEC today released a statement from Commandant Solder Ronin on the recent apprehension of a Prosthetics smuggler:

On 118.3.23, a TRI Security officer on regular patrol stopped an scanned a pilot in Zealot’s Refuge.  The pilot, Garrod Kelton, was found to be carrying 30 units of Prosthetics.  He was immediately detained and his ship impounded.

During questioning, Mr. Kelton indicated that he had been contracted anonymously to move the Prosthetics from Klatsches Hold to Lothars Landing in exchange for for 11 units of platinum (about 500,000 credits).  He claims to have picked up the cargo from a storage container on Klatches Hold and did not know who would be receiving the contraband at Lothars.  He did indicated that when initially contracted, he was told that the significant proceeds of the transaction would be used to help fund the Rismore campaign in Hyperial, but we have been unable to ascertain any concrete ties to Mr. Rismore or anyone else in his campaign organization.

Mr. Kelton is a citizen of Solrain and is being turned over to the STCC for appropriate prosecution.  If we receive any other pertinent details that can be released under Solrain law, we will make them public.

We will continue out vigilant patrols in an attempt to disrupt all Prosthetics trade and request the cooperation of all law-abiding pilots.

Prosthetics Smuggler Apprehended

by Thane Carios

(Solrain Wake Station) A smuggler flying a Phaeton was apprehended yesterday in Bronci Rift by TRI Security for allegedly having Prosthetics in-hold, a commodity that hasProsthetics been outlawed for many years.  The pilot’s name has not been release pilot pending an official arraignment.

There has, as yet, been no speculation regarding the smuggler’s planned destination or destinations.

After years of lobbying and protests — primarily by Quantar — Prosthetics exports from Hyperial were outlawed by TRI after evidence was unearthed that the Prosthetics included organic tissue of questionable origin.  Hyperial was thought to have stopped all Prosthetics production in 107.

Hyperial Antiflux Supplies Disappear

UUNN Newswire

(Hyperial) Hyperial authorities reported that the small supply of rare Antiflux ECMs antifluxthey had provided at Hyperial Station were taken on 117.11.1.  The news triggered a pricing panic with very few Antiflux left.  Prices were nearing 500,000 credits by the end of the day.

TRI-SEC indicated that they had an idea who had purchased the Antiflux, and that they planned on questioning the pilot.  “We have the purchase data from Hyperial and are going to be talking to the pilot — primarily for his own safety,” said TRI officer Layton ‘Scorch’ Morrison.”  Technically, nothing illegal has happened since the Antiflux were purchased at the market price.   But pilots tend to react rather emotionally when it comes to hoarding of rare goods.  This guy needs to understand what he’s setting himself up for.”

Explosions Damage Amananth Station and Production Facilities

by Thane Carios

(Amananth) A series of powerful explosions today damaged sections of Amananth station, as well as the Antiflux Custom Producer and the RB-4 Science Factory.

According to TRI-SEC, the station appears to be functional, but they have had no success in communicating with the station AI either via remote or hardlink.  The same cannot be said for the two separate production facilities.

“The RB-4 factory is very badly damaged,” said TRI-SEC Officer Thadeus “Ace” Adder.  “It’s structural integrity is at 20% and I’m not sure whether it can even be repaired — it antiflux-cp-damagelooks pretty bad.

“The curious one,” continued Adder, “is the Antiflux CP.  It shows some fairly significant external damage, and there’s no entry port, but my scans continue to report ‘no damage.’  I’ve tried several times — even docked and had my entire ship’s system rebooted.”

There is currently no evidence as to what caused the explosions at this time, but the unofficial theory is a Conflux attack, since they have attacked both Amananth station and the orbital facilities before.
