Commanders, recent occurences in the Elite Dangerous universe have set in motion a series of events in the upcoming months that will create a turning point for human civilization in the Milky Way.
Senator Kahina Tijani Loren, also known as Salomé was killed on April 29th 3303. With luck, her supporters allowed for a critical message to be delivered to several data points in the Teorge system. We have now become aware that the Empire, Federation and Alliance are aware of an unknown alien threat lurking beyond inhabited space, with reports of hyperdictions and potential attacks on Federation vessels in the Pleiades nebula, Maia to be exact. We have reason to believe the major factions in inhabited space are planning an exodus to Earth-Like worlds outside of inhabited space in the event of catastrophic attacks occurring in inhabited space. The First Contact Defence Initiative is calling on Commanders throughout the Milky Way to come to our aid. Our plan is two fold: reinforce defences in inhabited space and establish the resources in the Colonia sector to enact a counter attack if necessary. Our goals and protocols are as follows:
1 Preparation for alien attacks must be underway in both Sol inhabited space as well as the Colonia sector. For now, this will include training new pilots as well as helping Commanders obtain the credits and practice to become combat ready, giving them the assets and combat experience to be ready for any alien threat.
2 While many suspect the Thargoids to be behind this threat, we cannot confirm for a fact that they are involved with our limited knowledge of recent events. Thus, the First Contact Defence Initiative will follow "First Contact" protocol. This means that first contact with aliens(edited)
must not be met with hostile force unless hostile force is delivered by the aliens. If no deadly force is used, instructions via the Chief Diplomat will be given to those who make first contact via Discord.
3 All communications for the First Contact Defence Initiative will be conducted on Discord: https://discord.gg/C7DQfqb
4 We are requesting support from as many player groups as possible. This isn't a one group effort, and we are willing to make voice and text channels for every player group that decides to join our cause. In particular, we are looking to make contact with the Children of Raxxla, Canonn Research and the Fuel Rats.
The First Contact Defence Initiative looks to honor the memory of Senator Kahina Tijani Loren, and protect all of inhabited space. The best way we feel that can be done is to heed and prepare for the threat she perished to warn us of.
