Yenni-bodies Pirates?

A PIR outpost was miraculously discovered by an IMP freighter, of all things, in the Yanni system with several Javelin class warships in orbit. After noticing the IMP freighter and seeing the public post by Jack Jones on subspace, the PIR decided to flee and leave a combined force of IMP and FET forces to capture the outpost. A brain damaged three-year old commentator who still believed in the goodness of people and Santa Claus was quick to commend the IMP on their good work, dismissing those who thought it no more than a convenient clearing up operation signifying* completion of operations in the nearby FET claimed systems of Graydown, Canth and Onissian by IMP puppet Edward Lowe. Meanwhile, the Wolf Lord Lyceum summed up the view of many when he screamed, “What is this amateur b*llshit?” into an uncaring universe.

*** In Brief ***

The GRC have annexed the former KRL system of BriXx and proclaimed it a sanctuary for their perverse tree-hugging ideology. With the reformation of the FLZ, who will enslave these furries who desperately need to be enslaved and put to work. The galaxy only has room for one affiliation of lazy napping tea-drinkers!

The GTT have wrestled out competitors in the Wimble winkle warket with one HEX trader resorting to calling into question Xavier Fox’s parentage. But everyone knows… He came out of storm and nightmare of blood and snow. Are you guided by the Stellar? He wants to know... Would you die for the Emperor? Then hear his call! Raise your horns for master Lysander. Till the heavens fall... He takes it from the living! He came out of dark and fire from down below. All he needs is merchandisers. He wants to know... Will you die for the Emperor? He'd sell you all. Raise your notes for great consume in his metal mall... He takes it from the living!

The DTR’s own Admiral Bridge has revealed the value that the IMP place on the poor crew of their logistics freighters. After responding to an automated SOS call from the HMS Andromeda, Bridge found the ship slowly turned to debris and its crew left abandoned to die. Former Viceroy Lord Simms admitted the crew were an unfortunate victim of his lack of attention. How many more poor souls are left to die in the great expanse because these senile toffs don’t give a shit whether they live or die? He takes it from the living!

The TOAD is looking for LiQuan’s old stash. Somebody, somewhere, something.

Scientists in Zewt system have calculated that it is almost certain that at some point Crossonan will be hit by a large displaced asteroid and is likely to suffer an extinction level event. Some are said to be incredulous as to why this has not already happened. We contacted the GRC for comment but we have heard no intelligible response.

*** Special Report: Flagritz Terraforming ***

Our intrepid Felini reporter, Son of Kang, was sent through the Black Gate stargate where he met with representatives of the FLZ who took him beyond into the secretive Flagritz Republic which few free aliens have seen. There he received a personal tour by terraformer extraordinaire, Kayxaer of one of the challenging projects being undertaken by the FGZ.

Project A

“Here's an orbital image of a terraforming project {A} that we've been working on off and on over the past year. We never bothered to capture the original status of the planet-- we weren't expecting press interest-- but five sectors of ruins were rebuilt, twelve cultivated sectors were added, and thirty degrees were knocked off of the mean temperature of the planet. We then added all of the visible forest, seas, shallows, and grassland sectors and generally rebuilt the planetary ecosystem from the former cracked and barren crust. The natives are certainly appreciative.

Project B - start of terraforming process

“Here's a much more difficult project {B}, which we've been working on for roughly three years that had interlocking problems making planetary restoration far more complex. This particular planet is finally approaching the point where the various issues have been sufficiently teased apart that the pace of terraforming is beginning to accelerate. As you can see, the temperature has been reduced fifty-five degrees (starting temperature was 378) and we're building up the atmospheric pressure and have begun modifying the atmospheric composition.

Project B - current status

“While there's essentially no benefit to the Flagritz from these planetary restorations, planet A was an amusing test project (and the citizens there are certainly pleased) while planet B has historical and archeological significance. (It's hard to enjoy the spoils of war when the damn Cliriq stripped off the atmosphere and what little's left is churning out corrosive acid rain heated to the boiling point. So we're fixing it).

“There are other projects running, but these are probably the most dramatic.”
