And those are the main stories this week.
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, 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.”
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.
