As Federal and Imperial factions continue to fight for control of the Neits system, the New Galactic Cooperative of Worlds has issued a statement denouncing the violence. GalCop's representative, Jahena Yar Savor, addressed both sides of the conflict, and appealed for an end to hostilities in the spirit of cooperation and unity.
"Our differences must not be settled through violence," said Savor. "This conflict may have begun because of ideals, but it has led to very real damage. Until both sides set aside their differences and their weapons, the citizens and business interests of Neits will continue to suffer."

A demonstration was held today at Leoniceno Orbital in Azaleach calling for the immediate release of all information submitted in response to former Federal president Jasmina Halsey's appeal for exploration data.
"Something isn't right here," said one of the demonstrators. "Mountains of data were submitted, and within two days they were able to review it thoroughly enough to declare there was absolutely nothing of interest? This reeks of a cover up."
Speakers at the rally demanded that the Azaleach Partnership, to which the information was submitted, release the data so its findings could be independently verified.
"Science relies on openness, collaboration and peer review," argued one speaker. "It's an integral part of the process. Any conclusions based on secret data should be treated with suspicion."
Recent reports indicate that a number of starports forced to suspend services due to Unknown-Artefact related interference have been restored to normality through the application of meta-alloys. Ackerman Market in Eravate, Gabriel Enterprise in Harma, Weyn Dock in 64 Arietis and Onnes Gateway in LFT 37 are all now reported to be fully operational.
This development – a testament to the hard work of the pilots who have delivered meta-alloys to the affected stations – will no doubt bring hope to those still affected by the technological plague.
The starports currently closed as a result of Unknown-Artefact related interference are:
Lave Station, Lave
Ising Dock, 109 Piscium
Fozard Dock, HIP 19934
Irens Dock, Manite
von Bellingshausen Port, Almar
Haack Gateway, Halbangaay
Gurragchaa Gateway, Warkushanui
Korolyov Hub, Arawere
Lobachevsky Outpost, Pic Tok
Carter Port, Rhea
Meanwhile, the following starports continue to experience technical issues:
Alexander Freeport, HIP 18843
Bloch Vision, Loperada
Love Ring, Evejitaka
Robigo Mines, Robigo
Saunders's Dive, Wolf 1301
Skvortsov Orbital, 63 G. Capricorni
Kooi Gateway, HIP 93377
Jaques Station, Gliese 1269
