The Journal 1

12 Dec 3305 I have decided that I should start to keep a journal. I am not entirely sure that this is a well thought out idea, but I figure someone should record it. Who better to record my journey than myself? It is the night before the Distant Worlds 2 Expedition and I find myself nervous and giddy....

Week 1

The expedition started with some "minor" turbulences. My Frame Shift Drive acted up because of the mass jump of thousands of other CMDRs. That was way too much stress for that thing, though repeatedly hitting it with the wrench seemed to wake Snow White from her slumber. With the FSD running...

The Divine Chronicles II

The Chronicles Chapter 2   So it wasn't pretty at first. But I came into contact with the commander Renraiku that took it upon himself to generously share his reward earnings with me. I was able to leave that wretched loaned sidewinder into something much more appealing.  After watching him murder...

Tread the Stars - Now Where?

### Circa Polaris Australis So, I'm currently in the delightful Laming Depot. It's just what I'd expect from an Imperial outpost: I take one look at the mechanics and lock my hatches. I should have found a secluded crater on a moon to land in to sleep. Anyway, I want to get out of Empire territory...

Preparations

The sidewinder sat in pieces strewn about the hanger, techs were pulling more pieces from the tiny ship. To one side two figures stood watching the process and talking quietly.  One with her arms akimbo suddenly spun towards the other who stood at parade rest with the quiet self-assured nonchalance of...

Week in Review

Here are this week’s main stories.

The conflict in the Paresa system has ended with Nova Imperium being defeated by Imperial forces. As the conflict drew to a close, Senator Denton Patreus declared that the isolationists’ forces had been significantly depleted.

In related news, Imperator Mordanticus, the leader of isolationist group Nova Imperium, has been captured by the Empire. His arrest was made during the conflict between Nova Imperium and the Empire in the Paresa system. The Imperator will be brought before the Senate on Friday the 25th of January to answer charges of treason against the Empire.

The Interstellar Health Organisation (IHO) has approved Vitadyne Labs’s nanomedicines as a legal medical product. The IHO has lifted all restrictions, with the caveat that distribution must be handled by an established pharmaceutical company.

The disappearance of famous actor Consuela Knight and the crew of her luxury yacht has sparked a flood of rumours. Independent reporter Flint ‘Firemaker’ Lafosse discussed the mystery on the Rewired news feed, speculating that a Thargoid weapon could be responsible, among other theories.

Finally, the Omega Mining Corporation has requested deliveries of raw materials for a new Orbis starport, to be built in the heart of the galaxy. The construction of this starport constitutes part of the ambitious Distant Worlds II expedition. Project leader Erimus Kamzel stated the objective to be humanity’s first starport in the Galactic Centre region.

And those are the main stories this week.

Mystery of Missing Crew Sparks Rumours

The disappearance of famous actor Consuela Knight and the crew of her luxury yacht has sparked a flood of rumours.

Independent reporter Flint ‘Firemaker’ Lafosse discussed the mystery on the Rewired news feed:

“The scientists say this might be an anomaly that only affects organic tissue. But that doesn’t explain the discovery of Consuela Knight’s half-eaten meal, does it?”

“Others think it could be a new Thargoid weapon that disintegrates humans while leaving ships intact. Or maybe the cultists were right, and the Far God has started snacking on individuals before it arrives to eat the whole universe.”

“For all we know, this has been happening to ships for years. Maybe it usually gets hushed up, which is harder to do when a big-name celebrity vanishes. Which of us might be next? Think about that next time you jump into hyperspace…”

Imperator Mordanticus Captured

Imperator Mordanticus, the leader of isolationist group Nova Imperium, has been captured by the Empire. His arrest was made during the conflict between Nova Imperium and the Empire in the Paresa system.

Chancellor Anders Blaine made a pronouncement on behalf of Emperor Arissa Lavigny-Duval:

“With its fleet destroyed, Nova Imperium’s seditious agenda has been halted. The so-called Imperator, Duke Kaeso Mordanticus, will be brought before the Senate on Friday the 25th of January to answer charges of treason against the Empire.”

Political journalist Cassia Carvalho commented in The Imperial Herald:

“For the emperor to assemble the entire Senate is a rare occurrence. It seems likely that she will make an example of Mordanticus, perhaps with a public trial.”

“lthough Nova Imperium survives in the Paresa system, the loss of both its fleet and military commander may have delivered a mortal blow to the isolationist cause.”

Nova Imperium Defeated in Paresa System

The conflict in the Paresa system has ended with Nova Imperium being defeated by Imperial organisation Yupini Limited.

As the conflict drew to a close, Senator Denton Patreus made the following statement:

“With the aid of our loyal Imperial auxiliaries, the isolationists’ forces have been significantly depleted. Let this be a warning to others – the Empire will not tolerate insurrection.”

Pilots who participated in the conflict can now collect their rewards from Dyson City in the Paresa system.

Sir Edmund Percival Hillary KG ONZ KBE (20 July 1919 – 11 January 2008) was a New Zealand mountaineer, explorer and philanthropist. On 29 May 1953, Hillary and Nepalese Sherpa mountaineer Tenzing Norgay became the first climbers to reach the summit of Mount Everest. They were part of the ninth British expedition to Everest, led by John Hunt. Hillary was named by Time as one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century.

Hillary became interested in mountaineering while in secondary school, making his first major climb in 1939, reaching the summit of Mount Ollivier. He served in the Royal New Zealand Air Force as a navigator during World War II. Prior to the 1953 Everest expedition, Hillary had been part of the British reconnaissance expedition to the mountain in 1951, as well as an unsuccessful attempt to climb Cho Oyu in 1952. As part of the Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition he reached the South Pole overland in 1958. He subsequently reached the North Pole, making him the first person to reach both poles and summit Everest.
