Huge fleet skirmish at the London/Crossley wormhole
A large fleet of over 700 DEN warships responded to the EMP action in Crossley, where a 4000 hull DEN platform was destroyed. Reports show the DEN ships caught a group of CIA ships napping and inflicted significant losses on the humans. IMP and GTT fleets moved to assist the CIA, matching DEN fleet numbers, but the arrival of over 1200 Hexamon ships seems to have tipped the battle in favour of the DEN-HEX alliance.
The combined DEN-HEX force pushed through the wormhole into the Heartland area of human space and retaliated, attacking several CIA platforms in response. The outnumbered Empire fleets abandoned the area and fled, they are currently waiting for the larger alien force to make their next move from their hiding places.
AFT are not pirates
After the report last issue of an AFT ship boarding and capturing an IND ship, Mr Kapan of the AFT moved to assure the peripheries that it was an isolated event and that his faction of the AFT are nothing more than honourable traders. Following other communications it appears the AFT have moved to return the ship that was taken to it's rightful owners.
So the AFT appear to be back to peace loving traders. With the AFT PD not being heard of for months we were unable to get any further thoughts on recent actions.
DTR declassify Boltzman Brain device information
Morley Decker, PD of the DTR has started to release information about the Boltzman Brain device in the Straddle system. An account stretching back some years about an alien device located at an unknown starbase. Here follows an extract:
Surprisingly, it was the smallest of the affiliations who made the discovery. The QNG knew little of their own history. They knew of being bombed to the point of extinction on Fake in Teller. They knew of the great transit from their ancestral homes (a tale for another day). The belief that they had served the ARC was a mistaken one, but they continued to try to gain knowledge from these ancients. The sought knowledge, technology and artefacts of the ARC, TCA and the UNK. After talking to an ARC nymph, the QNG discovered an asteroid orbiting the star in Straddle. But care was needed because this system was owned by the DTR, who at the time were known for great projects, yet short patience.
The QNG were looking for traces of a race called the UNK. A rumour had been acquired to examine the orbit of the star in A1 of the straddle system.
Special Action/Straddle/Alien Ship
While the scan for an alien ship has failed, the sensors have detected an anomalous asteroid just a few million kilometres above the chromosphere of the star. Entering orbit on the dark side in order to avoid the heat, the team scan the rogue body. The sensors detect that this thing must be artificial. This could well be associated with UNK ship as the pitting on the sunwards side shows that it has been hammered for a very long time.
Give us your Moxa, we need to blow stuff up
