Broken string

Atroco system. Lasswitz Port. Maintenance area 42. Recycling access corridor number 2 “She getting you to do her dirty work again?” the brutish looking man asked with a grin that jerked his tribal tattoos into a feral rictus. Walking beside him, the smartly dressed figure just shrugged....

Too Close For Comfort

Well, here I am out past Sagittarius A, swapping time between seeing the sights with some fellow commanders, and actually exploring undiscovered parts of the galaxy for myself instead of surveying R2R routes for other companies. I should digress a little to explain that being over 25k light years...

My past adventures... Now I am back. Commanders log #0001

It's been a while since I did a log of my travels in space and that's because I have been away from the pilots seat to pursue other paths but before we proceed any further. I want to tell you a past story of why I left this life to explore another. It all started 3 years ago. I was a new pilot, fresh...

Abandoned

It's a funny thing. I'm sat here, lights blazing, looking at an abandoned... research? site in the middle of bleedin' nowhere. Some 8000LY from home and what do I see on my scanner? A high wake pattern. It's too far gone for me to scan now but someone was out here. That probably shouldn' be weird,...

CMND Log 029: En route to Goliath's Rest

March 19 3305:  Arrived in Philipea W-KE Yadda Yadda, the Crown of Ice system.  Trip here had been relatively uneventful, my new update to my market connector now pings planets with high deposits of notable materials when scanned, which I find very helpful.  I've been only stopping for Water/Earth worlds...

Cultist Occupation of Starport Continues

Archambault Terminal in the Chun Tstar system remains under threat of nuclear destruction by the Children of Tothos.

Senior Agent Rochelle Karim updated the media:

“Despite the best efforts of our negotiators, the cultists remain in control of the starport and still intend to detonate the Lucifer Device. This 300 megaton weapon is capable of wiping out Archambault Terminal, along with the starport’s entire population.”

“Their leader, Barnabas Cole, has transmitted messages via the starport’s comms array, repeating claims of ‘preparing to bring Tothos’s light to us all’. There is no mention of a deity named Tothos in historical or mythical records, which suggests the faith was recently founded by Cole.”

“Despite this, several civilian ships arrived in the Chun Tstar system over the past few days, attracted by Cole’s sermons and seeking to join the cult. The FIA is monitoring the situation closely.”

Distant Worlds Starport Operational

The first starport constructed in the Galactic Centre region has officially opened its doors.

Explorer’s Anchorage, an Orbis starport, has been built in the Stuemeae FG-Y d7561 system as part of the Distant Worlds II expedition.

Councillor Magnolia Gill, the starport administrator, announced its operational status:

“For the last four weeks we have watched our new home take shape, using materials delivered by many hard-working pilots. Now it spins in the galaxy’s heart, a monument to humanity’s ingenuity.”

“As well as serving as a safe haven for future explorers, Explorer’s Anchorage is a scientific research installation. We hope to learn more about the supermassive black hole at Sagittarius A* and other astronomical phenomena in the Galactic Centre.”

The Distant Worlds II exploration fleet is continuing its journey across the galaxy towards Beagle Point.

Week in Review

Here are this week’s main stories.

The Children of Tothos cult has taken control of Archambault terminal in the Chun Tstar system. Access to most station services has been suspended. It is feared that the cult’s leader, Barnabas Cole, plans to detonate the Lucifer Device as part of an apocalyptic ceremony.

Rackham Capital Investments has appointed Taja Gavaris as its new CFO, following the death of its former financial officer. CEO Zachary Rackham was not involved in Gavaris’s appointment, leading to speculation of a scheme to remove Rackham from the company.

And finally, the Distant Worlds II expedition has gathered the resources required to construct a new megaship and installation in the Stuemeae FG-Y d7561 system. The fleet will now continue its journey towards Beagle Point.

And those are the main stories this week.

Rackham Fatality Creates Power Struggle

Rackham Capital Investments has appointed a new CFO following the death of its former financial officer.

Business analyst Marlon Royce reported on the situation:

“Aaron Salazar was CFO at Rackham Capital Investments from its inception. After a sudden cardiac arrest at the Ivystone Spa proved terminal, the board of directors voted to install Taja Gavaris as his replacement. Little is known of Gavaris outside of her meteoric rise up the corporate ladder.”

“CEO Zachary Rackham was not present at the vote, the CEO has taken a leave of absence to cope with his grief. “The multi-billionaire businessman, also known as ‘Calico Zack’, established the company following a lucrative career as an independent trader, although rumours persist that he actually operated as a pirate.”

“Insiders have speculated that Gavaris’s appointment may be part of a scheme to oust Rackham from the top spot.”
