Galactic News: Weekly Expansion Report


Here are the latest factions to have expanded into new systems:Expansions occur when a minor faction reaches a sufficient level of influence and there is a populated system within striking distance.

Here are the latest factions in withdrawal:Factions are considered to be in withdrawal if their level of influence within a system drops below a certain level. If the faction's influence remains low for a total of five days, the faction must leave the system entirely. If the faction manages to increase its level of influence, it remains in the system.

Galactic News: Rahu Operation comes to an End

An Alliance spokesperson has announced that its operation to the crew of an Alliance convoy from opportunistic slavers in the Rahu system has reached a successful conclusion.

Hundreds of independent pilots supported the campaign by recovering escape pods from the remains of the convoy and delivering them safely to Acharya Station. Meanwhile, combat pilots neutralised slavers who were attempting to take escape pods from the wreckage.

As the operation drew to a close, an Alliance spokesperson made a brief statement:

"We are immeasurably grateful to the galactic community for its support. Countless members of Alliance personnel have been spared a lifetime of enforced slavery, and we have you to thank for it."

Pilots who contributed to the initiative can now collect their rewards from Acharya Station in the Rahu system.
