  • Galactic Hour News Roundup: Crackdowns on Collaborators, Cartels, and Cults Edition
    by Ret Gloriaxx on October 28, 2020 at 17:38

    The Scope’s Galactic Hour with Ret Gloriaxx brings your roundup of the latest news from around the cluster, as CONCORD and the empires respond to crime, terrorism and cults in the chaotic aftermath of the Triglavian invasions and stargate disruptions. Above: SARO Marshal-class Battleships in Yulai CONCORD’s Inner Circle Authorizes SARO to Hunt Down Triglavian Agents and Supporters Yulai, Genesis – CONCORD’s elite Special Affairs for Regulations and Order (SARO) division has been authorized by the Inner Circle to hunt down Triglavian agents, supporters and infiltrators across all CONCORD member states, subject to local jurisdiction in territories not covered by the Yulai Accords and Convention. In practice, the move is aimed at rooting out Triglavian infiltration of space industrial infrastructure and any relevant facilities on planetary bodies. The agreement of the Inner Circle’s core empire delegates was critical to permitting SARO operations of such sweeping scope in territories not normally subject to CONCORD law enforcement. Colonel Oveg Drust of SARO Command Liaison noted that, “the primary jurisdiction and role of local law enforcement agencies will naturally be respected and SARO units will generally be operating in a support role.” Asked to comment on the effect on capsuleers, Colonel Drust responded, “capsuleer activity is covered by the Yulai Convention and CONCORD law enforcement is bound to respond within the limits laid out therein. Whether the Accords and Convention require updating is a matter for political direction. However, SARO is concerned that Triglavian subversion and infiltration may impede necessary work to ensure the security of New Eden.” Reform of the Yulai Accords and Conventions is notoriously slow, requiring highly technical negotiations subject to veto at several stages by Inner Circle and CONCORD Assembly delegations. Moreover, rumors of factionalism within the CONCORD administrative apparatus and the ambiguous role of the Society of Conscious Thought swirl around political and diplomatic sectors in Yulai. CONCORD’s institutional inflexibility is noted by many observers as one reason the core empires demanded the formation of EDENCOM. Above: Blood Raider Forward Operating Base, Derelik Region Amarr Empire’s House Sarum Increases Investment in PMCs as Blood Raider Threat Rises Sarum Prime – House Sarum has formally lodged records of its increased investments in private mercenary companies with the Amarr Trade Registry and Imperial Chancellor’s Office. Additionally, major investments in rearmament and recruitment programs have been filed, indicating that House Sarum intends to take a prominent role in the rebuilding of the Amarr Empire’s military capabilities following the gruelling war with the Triglavian invaders. The increased used of PMCs by House Sarum is believed to be a measure bridging the gap in forces available to it to meet its commitments in the Sarum Military Circuit of the Amarr Empire. Increased Blood Raider activity throughout the fringes of the Amarr Empire has been reported, with the extensive holdings of House Sarum in Devoid and the Bleak Lands exposed to this threat. The chaos of the Triglavian invasion is considered by the Ministry of Internal Order to have “enabled the insidious Sarikusan sects to infiltrate isolated colonies and convert them to the vile Blood cult heresy.” House Sarum has responded by carrying out raids on Blood Raider installations but is rumored to be preparing a major offensive on cultist bases and purge operations in colonial settlements. The Shining Flame company, a major Amarr PMC associated with House Sarum, is reported to be among the beneficiaries of the buildup spearheaded by the Sarum military. The ruthless reputation of the Shining Flame has caused disquiet in the frontier settlements of the Empire. The uncertain situation has also led to an increase in the alert status of the Minmatar Republic Fleet’s patrols along the border with the Amarr Empire and Ammatar Mandate. Above: Jita 4-4 Expansion Project Remains On Track Despite Invasion, say PKN Caldari State Security Forces Raid Activists Amidst Claims of Criminal Activity New Caldari Prime – Corporate security forces have carried out raids on alleged “criminal anti-corporate subversives” in several megacorporation territories across the Caldari State. The largest raids were carried out on New Caldari Prime, particularly in the satellite corporate districts around Landfall City. The Chief Executive Panel has issued orders to the Caldari Navy and State Peacekeepers to “co-operate fully with all corporate security operations against criminals and terrorists.” Units of Lai Dai Protection Service, NOH’s Internal Security, and Sukuuvestaa’s Peace and Order Unit have been particularly prominent in carrying out sweeping operations in their corporate districts, and outlying towns and cities controlled by their parent megacorps. All megacorporate security forces have to some extent been involved in a clearly co-ordinated sequence of operations that the CEP has declared “necessary to secure the good order of the Caldari State and the future prosperity of all citizens in our corporate way of life.” Security operations have extended to vital space infrastructure, including the Caldari Navy’s Jita 4-4 station and its ongoing expansion works, said by PKN Interstellar to be back on track following the invasions. Despite the relatively light touch shown by megacorps such as Hyasyoda, Kaalakiota and Wiyrkomi on New Caldari Prime, security operations on worlds beyond the core have been reported by numerous witnesses to be “brutal and indiscriminate”. An official of Ishukone Watch, speaking on condition of anonymity, has told a Scope News correspondent of her “shock and horror” at seeing reports of Intara Direct Action forces being used as contractors in CBD-controlled corporate territories. The Scope requested comment from CBD and Spacelane Patrol but no response has been received. The security operations come soon after an alleged increase in violence by protestors against the State’s conduct of the Triglavian war. Spacelance Patrol has gone so far as to link last week’s assassination of Kurt Tansaaki to the protest movement. Tansaaki was the former Executive Governor of a Deep Core Mining Inc. colony on Kaunokka III, evacuated with the DCMI executive staff before the fall of Kaunokka system to the Triglavian Collective. Above: Angel Cartel Trading Post, Curse Region Angel Cartel Operations in Gallente and Minmatar Space on the Rise Claim FIO and RSS Aufay, Sinq Laison – Angel Cartel activity in Gallente Federation and Minmatar Republic space is on the rise, according to a joint statement issued by the Federal Intelligence Office and Republic Security Services following a security co-operation summit in Aufay system. Angel Cartel infiltration of industrial and financial operations is a particular source of concern to the two security services, with an increase in smuggling also noted. The RSS has also noted an increase in people-trafficking carried out by the Cartel, and use of slave labor by industrial operations in fringe systems. Angel involvement in manufacturing and smuggling of all manner of illegal and counterfeit goods has been of great concern to the Minmatar authorities, with the Gallente Federation noted as a major destination for such products. The FIO and RSS have committed to further co-operation in the fight against the Angel Cartel and its affiliates. In addition, the use by the Cartel of outlaw mercenary units and renegade warclones will be met by the development of dedicated FIO and RSS units modelled on SARO’s ‘Red Troop’ counter-warclone unit.

  • Galactic Hour News Roundup: Triglavian Totality Edition
    by Ret Gloriaxx on October 22, 2020 at 16:08

    The Scope’s Galactic Hour with Ret Gloriaxx brings your roundup of the latest news from around the cluster, in a momentous week that has seen massive disruptions to the stargate network as the Triglavian Collective’s stellar manipulations altered the map of New Eden. CONCORD Empires Agree Continued Support for EDENCOM via New Eden Defense Fund Yulai, Genesis – Core empire delegates agreed continued funding and material support for EDENCOM at yesterday’s CONCORD Inner Circle meeting in Yulai. The agreement stipulates ongoing funding from the New Eden Defense Fund and secondment of military units to EDENCOM command, as was the case throughout the Triglavian invasions. The agreement also provides for cross-empire co-operation, permitting EDENCOM fleets drawn from multiple member states to operate in joint taskforces. While observers of interstellar diplomacy expected the resourcing of EDENCOM by CONCORD and the empires to continue, Provost Marshal Kasiha Valkanir made a clear case for the importance of maintaining the New Eden Common Defense Initiative as a standing force. Marshal Valkanir asserted that it would be vital for EDENCOM to be capable both of responding to further Triglavian aggression and strike into the occupied systems making up the new Triglavian region of “Pochven”. CONCORD sources have told the Scope that empire delegates expressed broad support for EDENCOM based on the successful defense of nearly 150 systems, and the total fortification of over 50 systems subjected to heavy invasion efforts by the Triglavian Collective. While the Caldari State’s territories took the brunt of losses, it is known that leaders and authorities within all empires privately believe that the outcome across New Eden could have been much worse. Projections by military experts on the Scope’s staff suggest that without the united command of EDENCOM, and particularly the formidable support of loyal capsuleers, the number of lost systems could have totalled as many as 81. Science specialists assigned to determining the strategic goals of the Collective suggest the invasions were aimed at gaining control of at least 21 systems, to include a specific set of star types, with the goal of initiating simultaneous stellar events within a particular timeframe. Other analysts suggest the resources of the Triglavian Collective were brought below a presumed strategic reserve level when they launched the final offensive that brought their conquests to 27 systems. This school of thought notes the pause in invasion operations between the fall of Krirald and the stargate disruption event, and also points out that the wave of attacks fell short of doubling the A0 star systems under Triglavian control. Above: CONCORD Bureau, Yulai IX (Kjarval) Inner Circle Agrees New Distribution and Security Measures After SCC and DED Analysis of Bounty Funding Efficiency Yulai, Genesis – In additional business at yesterday’s Inner Circle meeting, the executive body of CONCORD agreed to proceed with new funding distribution and security measures aimed at improving the targeting and efficiency of the longstanding bounty programs of the DED and empires. In particular, the SCC and DED presented an analysis of bounty funds disbursements compared with renegade, pirate and other criminal activities in the outer regions, showing systemic failures in the current joint DED and empire programs involving contracting of security surveillance to independent capsuleers. The Caldari State had requested the analysis following intelligence from both Ishukone Watch and Lai Dai Protection Services indicating separate Guristas Pirates and Angel Cartel efforts to subvert monitoring and disbursement protocols. The Inner Circle has ordered that the SCC urgently institute new security and monitoring for freelancer reward funding, and take full responsibility for bounty programs in nullsec. DED surveillance and intervention operations will continue, with the division’s nullsec focus being on intelligence work, tracking and anticipating criminal and terrorist activity in the outer regions. Above: Rogue Drone “Progenitor” under attack by Triglavian vessels in Pochven (credit: Aria Jenneth) Drifters and Rogue Drones Sighted Fighting Triglavian Forces in “Pochven” Region Pochven – EDENCOM forces and loyal capsuleers have reported numerous sightings of Drifter and Rogue Drone forces in conflict with the occupying Triglavian forces in the “Pochven” region formed by Triglavian stellar manipulations. EDENCOM is continuing to deploy expeditions to assess the status of the occupied star systems and evaluate the possibility of continued resistance support and civilian evacuations. While it was anticipated that EDENCOM operations in Pochven would meet resistance by Triglavian Collective forces, the effort has also been hindered by the presence of numerous Drifter strike forces and Rogue Drone swarms. An assessment of the ingress routes into the region is underway, with preliminary surveys indicating the altered space-time topologies of the occupied systems has caused a number of new unstable wormhole links to emerge. EDENCOM scientists have not ruled out the possibility that Drifter and Rogue Drone manipulations, together with a large use of conduit and filament technology by Triglavians and capsuleers is radically altering the underlying topology of the linked systems of Pochven. The nature of the changes to the occupied systems and the space-time topology of New Eden in general is not yet established, and many scientists believe that the period of such changes is not yet over. Above: An altered Sakenta III in transmuted glare of the system’s primary Caldari Resistance in Sakenta III Renews Contact with Caldari Navy Scouting Forces Sakenta, Krai Perun – Fresh reports from Sakenta system indicate the resistance forces on Sakenta III are still operating despite a lengthy period of occupation by the Triglavian Collective. Among the numerous occupied Caldari State systems in Triglavian space, Sakenta was an early conquest by the Triglavians, falling in mid June to the invaders. Caldari Navy Marine Scouts were reportedly able to link up with the Sakenta III resistance network some days ago and operations to impede the Triglavian Perun Clade’s hold on the planet apparently continue. Before the collapse of gate connections and formation of Pochven, the most recent reports from Sakenta suggested the resistance on both Sakenta III and V had collapsed or been eradicated. The overall situation remains unclear and there has been little contact with Sakenta V, which the Triglavians have apparently favored as a primary planetary base of operations in the system. Triglavian efforts at bioadapting the population of Sakenta are reportedly being accelerated as their widescale planetary “nanoforming” efforts have begun to alter the atmospheric, hydrological and geological parameters of planets under their control. In the Caldari State and corporate authorities continue to call for calm amidst continuing protests over the conduct of the Caldari system defense during the invasions. Protests had diminished during the stargate disruption crisis, with megacorporate handling of the immediate emergency broadly perceived as competent and necessary to support by most citizens. Popular ire has however returned its focus to the fate of the occupied systems and pressure on the CEP and “Big 8” megacorps continues to be at its highest since the “Provist Revolution” of YC110. Above: Evacuation flight from Skarkon under attack by Triglavian forces Chaos and Conflict on Skarkon Continues as Propaganda and Facts Blur Together Skarkon, Krai Svarog – The Minmatar system of Skarkon continues to be a source of disturbing and confused reports as occupation by the Triglavian Svarog Clade has thrown a system already plagued by conflict into total chaos. Reports from the periods immediately preceding and following the stargate collapse event suggested that the Triglavian Svarog and Veles Clades were engaged in a territorial conflict over Skarkon, with the Svarog evidently establishing a stronger claim ultimately. With the evacuation of the relatively low-population Krirald system considered successful overall, the primary focus of Republic authorities has been on the plight of the millions that remain in Skarkon, particularly on the heavily-industrialized and high-population second planet. Nevertheless, the Tribal Council has reaffirmed that both Krirald and Skarkon are “sovereign possessions of the Seven Tribes of Matar” and has ordered operations aimed at restoring them to Minmatar control to continue in both systems. Claims the Republic’s system government and military have abandoned Skarkon have been described by Sanmatar Maleatu Shakor as “baseless slander and lies by traitors to humanity who have aligned themselves with the brutal Triglavian invaders.” Khumatar and System Governor Kril Efrit, who has remained in Skarkon, has been commissioned as a Valklear General commanding the official Skarkon Tribal Resistance Army by order of the Tribal Council. Updated accounts of the final evacuation flights from Skarkon II and the former Republic Parliament station have told of Triglavian invasion units cutting off access to spaceports and docking bays during their final assaults on system infrastructure. It is claimed that Svarog units are particularly brutal and indiscriminate when attacking. The final flights to escape intact from the Parliament station have reported Svarog Clade carried out boarding assaults with heavy infantry equipped with powered armor, personal shields and kinetic weapons. A number of evacuation ships were trapped or heavily damaged, apparently leading to several being destroyed in space before they could escape. Above: Veles Clade occupied station (Vale II in far background) Federation Senate Calls on Administration to Urgently Investigate Possible Evacuation of Occupied Gallente Systems Vale, Krai Veles – The Federation Senate has passed an advisory motion urging the administration of President Celes Aguard to investigate further possible means of evacuating Gallente systems under Triglavian control in Pochven. The move follows resumption of contact with the heavily-populated worlds of occupied Vale, confirming that many billions remain alive in the system. While the Federation lost relatively few systems, the conquest of highly-developed Vale and its numerous populated planets was a devastating blow to the Gallente government and citizenry. Although there are also deep concerns over the fate of remaining civilians on Gallente worlds such as Ignebaener V and Angymonne IV, the tragic loss of Vale has dominated the social and political response to the Triglavian invasions in the Federation. In particular, reports of widespread Triglavian alterations to the biospheres of the Vale planets have shocked Federation citizens and driven political calls for action. Against this background, claims of Veles Clade beneficence in Vale have been made by so-called “Kybernaut” capsuleers and the Internal Triglavian Revolutionary Organization, also styling itself as “Intriguerre”. Such claims have been universally dismissed by Federation politicians as propaganda aimed at excusing naked aggression, mass murder and atrocity warfare. Despite this political response, reports that much of the population on Vale is co-operating with the occupation forces continue to trickle through the “information quarantine” established by EDENCOM. Persistent reports credit Veles Clade with making available protective bioadaptation alongside the extensive planetary “nanoforming” that appears to involve massive deployments of Triglavian “mutaplasmid” technology. President Celes Aguard herself was moved to comment that [alleged Veles Clade concern for the population of Vale] “strikes me as rather akin to the tender mercies the Garouni Spitting Spider lavishes on the prey it keeps in its silken larder”. Above: Triglavian Stellar Transmuter in shutdown state, orbit of Arshat primary star Amarr Empire Focuses on Territorial Integrity and Analysis of Triglavan Stellar Manipulation Arshat, Domain – Emerging from the Triglavian invasions with relatively lights losses in terms of systems occupied and populations trapped or displaced, the Amarr Empire has adopted a strong focus on ensuring the security of the greater Amarr Empire, Khanid Kingdom and Ammatar Mandate in the aftermath. Despite some early dismay among the Holder classes at losses such as Raravoss, Harva and Niarja, criticism of the conduct of the war from Amarr elites became muted as Amarr forces established effective defensive doctrines and the strategic position stabilized. While the severing of the Niarja-Kaaputenen corridor remains a matter of deep concern, Imperial authorities have established further secured jump links to the Caldari State in conjunction with the Empire’s closest ally. Essential military and industrial traffic is flowing between Empire and State at “acceptable levels” according to the Amarr Trade Registry. Exploratory planning for establishing a new primary civilian stargate link is said to have begun but there has been no public commitment from the Amarr Empire or Caldari State as yet. One notable item of progress within Amarr territory, widely hailed by the Amarr Certified News service, has been the successful shutdown of the Triglavian stellar transmuter captured by EDENCOM forces following the victory in Arshat system. Despite the scientific and technical effort being led by a cross-empire science group, and with questions raised over the exact circumstances of the shutdown, Amarr authorities clearly consider it an important element of a propaganda effort aimed at projecting stability throughout the Empire.

  • BREAKING – Further Stargate Shutdowns Ordered Across New Eden as Spacetime Instabilities Increase
    by Lina Ambre on October 13, 2020 at 10:59

    Yulai, Genesis – More stargate shutdowns have been taking place across regions surrounding the systems occupied by the Triglavian Collective under the SCC Stargate Security Directorate’s emergency protocol. Regions affected so far are Domain, Molden Heath, Everyshore and several are either shut down by now or in the process of being shut down. EDENCOM has confirmed that AEGIS commandos are present on stargates connecting to the occupied systems in an attempt to carry out the “ultimate contingency”, believed to be a plan to destroy the stargates. However, the scale of spacetime instabilities has reportedly taken AEGIS by surprise. Difficulty in even boarding the stargates due to the extreme nature of the gravitational distortions now taking place has been encountered by at least one team according to the Scope’s Ret Gloriaxx, reporting from Ennur in Molden Heath. Local control authorities and maintenance crews are also said to be out of contact with the outside world, hampering AEGIS efforts to secure core stargate systems and carry out what is assumed to be an effort to trigger massive fusion reactor overloads to destroy the stargate infrastructure itself. Time is evidently running out as potential catastrophe looms.

  • Massive Stargate Disruptions Across New Eden as Authorities Struggle with Spacetime Instability
    by Lina Ambre on October 13, 2020 at 09:52

    Yulai, Genesis – Massive stargates disruptions across New Eden have been attributed by CONCORD and local authorities to their efforts to halt the collapse of the entire stargate network due to “extreme spacetime instabilities” afflicting star systems across the cluster. The shutdowns of regional gate networks reached deep into the core of New Eden’s high-security space, with the Forge region experiencing a total shutdown and reboot late in the evening. Spacetime instabilities affecting stargates proximate to locations of so-called “metaliminal storms” were detected late yesterday morning, according to sources at the Secure Commerce Commission. Stargate maintenance crews across New Eden have been reporting dangerous shifts in the spacetime resonance patterns between pairs of gates as the frequency of power fluctuations caused by cluster-wide spatiotemporal anomalies has increased. Above: Minmatar Republic stargate shut down under SCC protocol The local impact of metaliminal storms raised fears of cascading failure across the gate networks of the affected regions, leading crews to co-ordinate regional shutdown and restart protocols in an effort to correct the resonance pattern deviations. Some success in temporarily correcting for the anomalies was seen but the constant increase in the frequency of the power output fluctuation of the artificial wormhole pairings of the network continued to cause grave concerns. An emergency session of the SCC’s Stargate Security Directorate determined that all stargates in a region should be shutdown according to the protocols enacted by crews in Pure Blind, Tenerifis and Venal regions. Further regions impacted by metaliminal storms experienced resonance deviations and stargate shutdowns were Catch, Tribute, Providence, Fountain and Vale of the Silent. Hopes that the problems would be limited to the outer regions affected by storms were dashed when crews in Aridia, Fountain, and Geminate activated the shutdown protocols as instability readings increased on several gates in those regions. The Khanid and Kor-Azor regions of the Amarr Empire also began the reboot procedure, swiftly followed by many regions in the outer perimeter of the cluster. Ultimately, shutdowns were determined to be necessary across many regions of New Eden, including Heimatar, Placid and the Forge. The SCC’s Stargate Security Directorate has deployed teams to key stargates across New Eden and continues to co-ordinate the response with the stargate control authorities of the core empires and CONCORD member states. Above: Federal Navy fleet monitors Cat system stargate to Vale system Empire Fleets Mobilize to Secure Gates Surrounding Occupied Systems In response to an escalating situation, with fears of a new Triglavian offensive sweeping through the population of New Eden, the core empires have deployed fleets to secure the gates leading to the 27 systems occupied by the Triglavian Collective. As the stargate disruption crisis unfolded, the Amarr Empire was the first to mobilize, rushing fleets to secure stargates leading into occupied systems in the Domain region. The Caldari State, Gallente Federation and Minmatar Republic soon followed suit, with stargate security fleets deployed to key systems in the Citadel, Essence and Metropolis. Deployments to territories bordering the occupied systems in Black Rise, Derelik, Lonetrek, Molden Heath, Everyshore, Sing Laison, and the Citadel were also rushed from fleet reserves of all the empires. The alarm sweeping New Eden at the disruption of the gates has been heightened by fears this is a prelude to a renewed offensive by the Triglavian Collective. Additionally, EDENCOM Command has reportedly ordered AEGIS commando teams to the stargates bordering the occupied systems amidst swirling rumors that there is a plan to physically destroy the stargates leading to Triglavian-held territories. According to the Scope’s sources, EDENCOM’s Joint Scientific Taskforce fears that shutting down the stargates will be insufficient to stop a cascading disruption centered on the occupied systems. Stargate pairings remain in a state of spacetime resonance even when stargate systems are fully powered down, with physical destruction or removal at least one stargate in a pair known to be the only sure way of totally severing such links.
