A return to the hotseat

"Look, Admiral. I wish I could help more. He'll, I'd give you years off. But the president asked for you personally. You certainly raised some eyebrows in Alpha Centauri the other month, and NLTT 21440. Now, I just need you to meet your new co-pilot. She's a rising star, just finished her mandatory...

Illusion and Deception

Falling Angel had docked once more at Vance Port. Monfort had travelled with her, rather than taking two ships on the same journey. Once the shuttle arrived at the ground port, he insisted on hiring a car and driving the rest of the way. "Fair's fair, after all," he said as the sleek blue...

Is this the real life or just a conspiracy?

Weeks have passed since I've updated this log. I almost want to apologize to my computer for not speaking to it in so long. That's weird. Isn't it strange how you become connected to things like that? ..... I really need to learn to control my ramblings and actually log important things. It...

Misadventures of Moonriver: Day 026

Time: o400 hours. I have a feeling that I will need to record my thoughts in order to make sense of it all. That is why I will be keeping an audio log. I decided to name it the misadventures, since mr. Price no longer goes around the ship with the datapad for the collaborative diary and some rather...

Exploration update. General Notes: 1. Sent the night on Spaido OC-D d12-4 A 3. A little rock with not much to see. 2. Woke up this morning to find that Cmdr. Rusty Dog was transmitting real time video over the deep space communication network. He, and thousands, are on the Distant Worlds 2 (DW2)...

Week in Review

Here are this week’s main stories.

The Federal Intelligence Agency has revealed that a nuclear weapon was taken from an unregistered outpost discovered last week, where dozens of personnel were gunned down by unknown perpetrators. The portable warhead, codenamed the Lucifer Device, is believed to possess enough power to destroy an entire city.

The Ambrose Foundation has confirmed that Lady Talitha Ambrose is missing, and that the family’s entire fortune has been lost. Believing that Lady Talitha has been kidnapped as part of the theft, the family has employed the Wallglass Investigations Agency to locate the missing heiress.

A campaign held by the Holloway Bioscience Institute to build a xenological research centre has concluded successfully. The new planetary outpost will be used to study lifeforms identified by the galactic community.

In other news, a number of priceless artefacts, spanning centuries of artistic history, have been stolen from the Museum of Civilization on Mars. In each case, the works were replaced with the image of a winking cat.

Finally, the Atlas Research Group has called for shipments of military materials to increase security in the Merope system. The initiative started with pledges from Atlas that public safety in the face of continued Thargoid activity remains a priority.

And those are the main stories this week.

Nuclear Weapon Stolen

The Federal Intelligence Agency has discovered that a nuclear weapon has been taken from an unregistered outpost.

Senior Agent Rochelle Karim made the following statement:

“Further examination of the outpost discovered last week confirms that it was home to unlicensed nuclear research. Personnel at the site were constructing a portable fusion warhead codenamed the Lucifer Device.”

“One operational prototype was produced, but we have failed to locate it. Our assumption is that whoever invaded the base now possesses a movable bomb with a 300 megaton yield – enough to destroy an entire city.”

“This investigation is a top priority and we are exploring all available leads.”

Heiress Confirmed Missing

The Ambrose Foundation has confirmed that Lady Talitha Ambrose is missing, and that all of its assets have been lost.

Baroness Oksana Ambrose, head of the institution, told the media:

“Everything we own has been transferred from our accounts to who knows where. Emergency funds are being used to settle debts and pay staff, but essentially the Ambrose Foundation is ruined.”

“I can only assume that vicious criminals have kidnapped Lady Talitha and tortured her into surrendering her inheritance.”

“I have used the last of our reserves to hire the Wallglass Investigations Agency. I pray that they can locate and rescue my beloved daughter.”

Xeno-Research Campaign Ends

A campaign from the Holloway Bioscience Institute to build a xenological research centre has concluded successfully.

Chief researcher Dr Roy Casimir told the media:

“Thanks to Nahuaru Crimson Bridge Int we now have sufficient materials to build a planetary outpost where our scientists can study lifeforms identified by the galactic community.”

“We are also grateful for the exploration data provided by many pilots, which will help us create a new research catalogue.”

Pilots who took part in the campaign can now collect their rewards from Williams Vision in the Nahuaru system.

Lagoon Nebula


The Lagoon Nebula (catalogued as Messier 8 or M8, and as NGC 6523) is a giant interstellar cloud in the constellation Sagittarius. It is classified as an emission nebula and as a H II region.

The Lagoon Nebula was discovered by Giovanni Hodierna before 1654 and is one of only two star-forming nebulae faintly visible to the naked eye from mid-northern latitudes. Seen with binoculars, it appears as a distinct oval cloudlike patch with a definite core. A fragile star cluster appears superimposed on it.

Some icons used here are from EDAssets site. Some of the radio stations are provided by Soma.
