  2. VOTE OF DISCLOSURE FAILS! ALL PARTIES OUTRAGED! AHEM MISSING! This morning, an emergency vote was called by the Free Tajaran People's Party on the nature of the crashed object. Due to the extremely volatile nature of the event, there were nearly no absentees, with the exception of Ahem Kah’nrir who has been refusing all calls since the discovery of the crashed satellite. The vote? Declassify all known information about the recently crashed PRA satellite. The fighting started almost immediately, as a member of the Free Tajaran People’s Party physically shoved a member of the Blue Party after a heated debate before the building. When the proceedings arrived to the Assembly itself, the situation was no calmer, individual voices were nearly inaudible due to the heated discussion. The room, however, quieted down once Supreme Commander Nated stepped up to the podium to speak. The speaking order followed as usual, however, little attention was paid to the speakers as they were continuously interrupted by shouting and arguing from the other seats. The proceedings had to be halted multiple times before the National Assembly finally moved to the voting. In the end the motion to DO NOT DECLASSIFY won out. Denied by a majority vote which was only achievable by the Adhomai Blue Party switching at the last minute, when they were promised the farmers and land which was damaged by the satellite would be recompensed. The minority supporting the disclosure primarily consisted of Free Tajaran Party and multiple Junta leaders. Ahem Kah’nrir was absent. However, it appeared that the vote was divisive within the parties themselves, as many members of the denying majority stormed out angry, seemingly displeased with their own party’s decision. A peculiar sight was the quiet Commander Kahan Hro’rammhad who had voted “Yes” on the disclosure, he seemed to be particularly upset, shaking his head fervently as he exited the building. Readers will note, Commander Hro’rammhad had previously unanimously supported decisions made by Supreme Commander Nated. While it is too early for predictions, experts and political analysts state that this could mark a shift in the political climate and that the current approach has gained the anti-war tent “many more enemies than they anticipated”.

  4. The Directory of Defense Operations Turns Towards the Traverse! Translated to Tau Ceti Basic Today, the groundbreaking organization established by Grand Councillor Weashbi, took its first major official action. In the previous weeks, the Federation’s best and brightest were examined critically and six Directors were found and placed within the organization. Thankfully, the Grand Councillor promised to handle the Tupkala Reformation personally so the Directory could focus on other matters. The Directory declared their intentions to “increase presence” within the Traverse due to the recent troubles from the Federation’s distant worlds. The Qukala have been asked, in addition to the previous measures, to begin stationing themselves at accessible points and provide medical and social aid to all Federation Citizens that have been negatively impacted by recent events. To ensure a swift resolution to the civil unrest, the Directory stated the Ruupkala and Sromkala have been deployed to the Traverse to restore faith in the Federation and to drive out dangerous activity with the assistance of the Qukala already present. The Directory said they are “optimistic” about the situation, and believe it can be resolved without any further serious action. We'll place our faith in them and hope for the best!
  5. Article #3 of the Peacekeeper Mandate arc Tau Ceti Foreign Legion Deployed President Joseph Dorn has announced his latest plans regarding the deployment of the Tau Ceti Foreign Legion. The rising tension within the Corporate Reconstruction Zone has reached dangerous heights, resulting in the implementation of the “Peacekeeper Mandate” - an attempt to stabilize the volatile regions. The Refugee Crisis of 2463, after the events of the Second Solarian Invasion and the influx of Skrell Migrants, the TCFL has seen a massive increase in size. Many of the enlisted personnel are now finishing their initial training, and are beginning to contribute to the success of the Republic of Biesel. He said: Sources from within the Dorn Administration have confirmed that the Tau Ceti Foreign Legion has already begun to set up operations across Mictlan, with many citing the “Samaritans” as the primary cause. The fledgling movement believes that Mictlan must stand on its own, with the group having engaged only in civil disobedience so far, but calls from within are said to be calling for more active resistance against “imperialists”. They have managed to rally supporters to their cause through several social media avenues, primarily utilizing Chirper for the proliferation of their propaganda. The video below was uploaded recently to their Chirper. Most of the video is spoken in the planet’s native tongue, Tradeband, but closed captions are available for those unable to understand. Viewer discretion is advised. We can only hope that the Tau Ceti Foreign Legion is able to contain the threat, and ultimately integrate those within the Corporate Reconstruction Zone. The agreement between the Coalition of Colonies and the Republic of Biesel is said to go into effect later this week, reducing both the trade tariffs and restrictions on immigration between the two nations. Date: 10/25/2463

  7. Contraband Seized Aboard an SCC Space Station Tau Ceti law enforcement has confirmed the seizure of a large contraband shipment yesterday aboard a corporate space station. The cargo came into the possession of the station's crew after the ship, a small civilian corvette, carrying it had to dock with the facility because of an emergency. A group of wounded and hungry refugees from the wildlands was present in the crew's compartment. The contraband was discovered after engineers were dispatched to repair the ship. Guns, nuclear waste containers, and barrels containing an unidentified acid were found in the ship's engine room. The origin and purpose of the shipment are currently unknown. The identification of the chemical was hindered because of heat damage caused by a fuel leak. However, specialists confirmed that the compound is some kind of industrial-grade acid. The nuclear waste that was found was likely the byproduct of a rustic nuclear fission technique. The pilot of the ship was found dead inside the locked cockpit. While the body had clear bullet wounds, coroners were unable to identify the cause of death due to the extensive damage caused by the fuel fire. Another passenger died in an unrelated chemical incident. The remaining survivors have been already interrogated and were given asylum by the government. Authorities are still searching for the ship's registry; they suspect that the smugglers likely registered it in the frontier. While extranet crime forums claim that the incident was linked to the Bayonet Hand's killings, Tau Ceti law agencies dismissed this hypothesis. Smuggling is becoming increasingly common in the wildlands and the reconstruction zone. Stellar Conglomerate's liaisons promised to continue working with the government to solve this security crisis.
  8. The Parliament Discuss the Growing Tensions in the Nomadic Host of the Southern Borders 23.10.2463 Government and Nomadic representatives from the Nomadic Host of the Southern Borders met today with the Parliament to discuss the growing tensions in the semi-autonomous province. While conflict between the settlers and the nomadic population was already commonplace, skirmishes are becoming more frequent. The local constabulary is overwhelmed; the small officer corps has to cover large distances in the rural region to answer any call. Unable to count on the Crown's protections, the settlers are starting to organize themselves into militias. Squads of armed farmhands and ranchers patrol the properties in search of any nomadic caravan trespassing. Believing themselves to be the rightful owners of these lands, the Rhazar'Hrujmagh rarely retreat without a fight. The settler's representatives asked for the Crown to send reinforcements to protect them from the Nomads. The Rock Nomads requested the dissolution of the militias. Grand Duke Akym Yudenikh urged Her Majesty to deploy the army to protect the farms and ranches of the Host; he claimed that most of the land was being wasted because of the nomad's presence. Grand Admiral Mahtra Dynhaas sided with the Rhazar'Hrujmagh; Dynhaas argued that the nomadic caravans are a necessary part of their border defense and should not be disrupted. Prince Serhiy Oliinyk suggested moving a portion of the constabulary from the northern regions to the south to prevent further escalation. Count Tscherim Sanguszkho praised what he called the "Nomadic Warrior Spirit" and proposed resettling all sedentary populations to other provinces. The Rock Nomad delegate spoke on behalf of King of the Mountains Rustam Harmaliik to the parliament: After consulting with Field-Marshal Rrhazhal Zarkradar'Akhan, Queen Shumaila decided to move some northern constabulary forces to the Nomadic Host for the time being. Royal Peacekeepers involved in the Adhomian Democratic Front's investigation are also being deployed to uncover the cause of the hostilities. Grand Duke Yudenikh warned Her Majesty about spreading the Kingdom's internal security too thinly.
  9. A New Era of Negotiations! President Hadii Deftly Resolves Dispute with One Call! 20.10.2463 Horrible tragedy struck two weeks ago when all contact with the newly created satellite, nicknamed “Tajani”, ceased! While the kosmostrelki response was swift, they could do very little without a signal to locate said satellite. After days of anticipation, the satellite's emergency beacon re-activated, reporting from the DPRA territory before being lost, forever. In the Republic, Tajara are taught that mistakes are acceptable, but what happened next was not! Both Ilvyat Kraschym and his wife Vladya Kraschym refused to report to the government what exactly happened! While Chief Naval Commander Samirro Qarrarhaz repeatedly messaging the scientific team behind the endeavor, he received only vague and nonspecific answers as to what exactly had happened. Only after days, when Qi-Xon Tri independently contacted the Chief Naval Commander, was the failure revealed. Both Ilvyat and Vladya Karschym have in the meantime fled from Hadii Institute of Orbital research and are being actively pursued. If the readers or any of their loved ones have seen those two Tajara, please contact their local authorities. As it was much too late to respond with a swift rescue operation, which the illegitimate state of DPRA would have surely taken as unwanted aggression. President Hadii instead arranged for a call between himself and “President” Almrah Harlala. While the specifics of this negotiation were not disclosed, the President called a press meeting to explain what exactly had happened. President Hadii finished his speech, as a roar of applause swept the room. The president then left, before anyone could raise any questions, Minister Zhuldyz Hadii stepped up in his stead on the podium. The room performed a standing ovation as Minister Hadii exited the room, ending the conference.

  12. Explosion kills dozen; Embassy levelled BREAKING - Mendell City officials report that the Jargon Federation Embassy has been bombed by foreign elements. A terrorist attack destroyed the Jargon Federation Embassy located within District One of Mendell City, resulting in the death of about a dozen, including many Jargon diplomatic representatives. It is believed an early warning from NanoTrasen managed to save the lives of many within the Embassy and its surrounding city bloc. An asteroid station in Aurora was also targeted in a related terrorist attack, which resulted in the theft of experimental materials; experts are now concluding those stolen materials share similar explosive properties with those used in the Jargon Embassy attack. “It’s undeniable that this is the work of the rogue faction that held the Aurora hostage,” said Lieutenant Deputy Bernard Summers, “Our scientific investigation team has matched the same classified energy signatures from the theft to this bombing.” Deputy Summers spoke to the press shortly after the bombing and promised “justice” against those who had conducted this heinous crime. “Our hearts go out to the Tau Ceti citizens who were unfortunately caught in the crossfire of this foreign attack, as well as the representatives who we failed to protect.” Tau Ceti Defense Agencies are investigating potential links between the Aurora hijackers and an influx of Skrell refugees. When questioned by the press, Deputy Summers had this to say, “There is not a doubt in my mind that the terrorists got through our relaxed borders with the refugees. In my opinion, the TCFL has no idea who is coming or going right now.” The Jargon Federation has expressed its deepest regrets to the diplomats and Tau Ceti citizens but declined further comment regarding terrorist cells within skrellian refugee ships.
  13. Talk.NT Message Board 1711 | My Account | (0) New Messages | Affiliates | Help TOP page > General Discussion > Synthetic > New borg brain announcement Posted by: galaxyBrian - 06/06/2463 - 03:20 mornin fellas! friend at work told me about this new thing that zeng and heph has been putting together. some sort of new brain or something to replace the old mmi tech everyones been relying on forever. probably about time they did it, link here if you want to read the article yourself but i put all the best bits below interesting stuff!! i know @circuitdoc might be able to weigh in right? --------------- Reply from: ddddd - 06/06/2463 - 03:21 Wtf Why Are You Awake At 3AM Go To Bed LOL --------------- Reply from: ghostinthemachine22 - 06/06/2463 - 03:28 >Wtf Why Are You Awake At 3AM Go To Bed LOL it's only 3am where YOu are moron. they might be on a totally different timezone, or planet! good post btw OP. I saw some ZH trucks pulling up near a factory near where I work and I know they have borgs there so they must be rolling this out already --------------- Reply from: circuitdoc - 06/06/2463 - 03:40 This is actually really interesting! The old MMI design suffered from what we'd call "rot" which was as gross as it sounds - the brain being exposed to the air like it was meant it would begin to literally rot over time. The old cradles would pump some preservation fluid in but it's never been perfect, you would not BELIEVE the stench if you open a cyborg that's not been maintened for long enough (refilling fluid and cleaning the brain were a part of the job). Basically, a fully-enclosed solution has been a long time coming, but I've ranted about that enough in the past haha. Interesting to see them rolling out the upgrades for free, but these things never are. I did a quick search and the ZH fluid they're using is SUPER proprietary, and expensive. This is how they'll make their money on this, I'll even put credits on that being the case. REALLY interesting is that brains don't appear to need lobotomising any more? The suppression of memories is handled by an onboard processor and the diodes (for interfacing with the brain) are sunk into the greymatter almost automatically. This should make the job a lot easier. --------------- Reply from: galaxyBrian - 06/06/2463 - 12:52 >it's only 3am where YOu are moron. they might be on a totally different timezone, or planet! no i was posting at 3am LMAO --------------- BACK TO TOP
  14. Chapter 3 - INTERMISSION/FALLOUT Date : Dec 1st and beyond (Began by the finale of KOTW.) This is the THIRD CHAPTER of Aurora's (tracked) story. After the conclusion of the SECOND SOLARIAN INVASION and the KING OF THE WORLD arc, the galaxy is in turmoil! The uncertain future of the Orion Spur has been decided as the Solarian Alliance caves in, leaving the New Human Wildlands in its place for much of its territory. Now, an intermission phase is entered before the next chapter of the Aurora's story begins.
  15. COMPROMISE: Aeson and Strom Come to an Agreement After nearly two weeks of back and forth negotiations upon the jewel world of New Hai Phong, it seems that tensions between Hephaestus Industries and the Solarian Government have subsided. Today, Senator Hendrik Strom and CEO of Hephaestus Industries Titanius Aeson both shook hands on a public broadcast announcement of what is being called the “Common Sense Compromise,” by the men responsible for its realisation and implementation. This agreement comes in a time of great uncertainty and corporate turmoil and is set to change some solarian policies not only with Hephaestus, but with all other Stellar Corporate Conglomerate affiliates as well. Within the compromise however, there were a new series of restrictions and measures both for and against megacorporations and their subsidiaries in the Solarian state. Together, however, Aeson and Strom have stated that they hope this change will be for the better and benefit all parties involved. As for what was decided upon, some of the key points are listed here: Hephaestus Industries will maintain full ownership of their assets and facilities based on and around New Hai Phong and are permitted to expand them at their leisure with Solarian Corporate Authority oversight. Any and all Hephaestus facilities based on New Hai Phong are subject to inspection by the SCA at the Authority’s convenience. Vessels are not subject to inspection. All Stellar Corporate Conglomerate affiliates must release all Tajara from their employ at any and all facilities or vessels based in Solarian space and are indefinitely forbidden to hire Tajara to these locations. The Eridani Corporate Federation is exempt from these restrictions. This also applies to citizens currently working abroad for SCC Affiliates. It is no longer illegal for former NanoTrasen employees to leave the Solarian Alliance. However, any citizen that is a former employee of an SCC affiliate who leaves the Alliance for work must maintain a Solarian Citizenship and residence, and will be subject to all taxes to their property and income typical of a citizen working within the Alliance. The Solarian Alliance will instate a fee to renounce Solarian Citizenship equal to 15% of the income of any citizen wishing to renounce their Solarian citizenship in favour of that of another nation. Any attempt to renounce citizenship without the payment of this fee will not be acknowledged by any SCC affiliates. This measure does not affect existing dual citizenship laws with the Jargon Federation or Eridani Corporate Federation. After this agreement was signed, with Aeson negotiating on behalf of the SCC and Strom on behalf of the Solarian Government, the two spoke at length about the progress they hope to see. “It just makes common sense, you know? This agreement that we’ve come to, not only makes it easier for us at Hephaestus to continue providing the Solarian people with steady employment and industry, but takes a load off of the fine Solarians who used to work for NT, our pals back in Biesel. Let’s hope this tosses them a line.” Strom, commented that the compromise was, “A step in the right direction for Sol-Corporate relations.” Furthermore, he elaborated, “We should welcome the opportunity to work with corporations in strengthening our society and protecting our great nation from savage, violent, xenos within and extremists on our borders without. Mister Aeson has shown today that those in the corporate world can be just as reasonable as the rest of us, and I think we’ve made great progress towards helping the people and being business friendly.” When asked as to why he wished to reverse such a sweeping, wide law like the criminalisation of former NT employees leaving the alliance for work, Strom was quoted as saying, “We’re not the enemy of the common Solarian that finds themselves forced to work for NT - we’re on their side against corporate dominance of their homes and incomes. It’s not right to punish them for the greed of their CEO who hates everything our great alliance stands for.” In opposition, Senator Le Hanh Trang staged a rally today in Cua Song protesting the compromise, decrying Strom’s actions as, “Selling out the people of New Hai Phong to the SCC and spitting in the face of the Solarian national spirit. Its an embarrassment.” Trang has been pushing since the collapse of the Alliance’s frontiers that all industry on New Hai Phong should be removed from Hephaestus ownership and be given to Einstein Engines or the newly established Solarian Corporate Authority. In other news, the Republic of Elyra has formally announced that they will begin further corporate restrictions in the coming months, the details of which are still undecided.
  16. Unathi Trapped in Tau Ceti! With the end of the invasion, Izweski forces have begun the process of returning back to Uueoa-Esa system. A portion of volunteer forces will remain to help distribute relief to those on Biesel and in surrounding space, helping the rest of the Republic of Biesel’s allies move medicine, provide food, and relocating those displaced by the brief conflict. By the mercy they show, the spirits are most pleased by sinta aiding their allies. The rest of the forces, largely levies, were previously expected to return home by now. Sources in Tau Ceti are reporting that the Republic of Elyra, in a bid to question Hegemon Not’zar’s honor, has shown caution. They are mandating sinta-led forces using the warp gate in Elyran territory may only send a portion of the troops at a time, ferrying them back to Hegemony space slowly, now that the conflict has ceased. Not’zar, in a measure of goodwill and faith, has gone along with the government of Elyra’s wishes, stating in brief, "[...] [he has] no ill-will towards the Republic." Such estimates as a result of this delay are predicting a return of most sinta to Izweski space a week from now. A majority of the Izweski’s honorable warriors will be stuck in space for the duration of the Keeping of Memories festival. A tragic time to not reconnect with those recently lost by the conflict! Many warriors are now flocking to Biesel, and Not’zar has paused many levy movements that would keep sinta stuck traveling during this sacred holiday until the Keeping of Memories has passed. The spirits be praised, for we will kindle their memories soon!
  17. The following news bulletin blinks open on each Eridanian device and visual implant connected to the extranet. 15 . 11 . 2462 PRIORITY NOTICE MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD OF FIVE AND THE SOL ALLIANCE. In breaking news, a few days ago the greater Alliance of Sovereign Solarian Nations announced to the galaxy that Prime Minister Michael Frost was found dead within his suite upon Unity Station in the Sol system. As the news was made public, the Board of Five were quick to convene with the Alliance’s political representative - Governor General Mei Luo - with whom they are now prepared to address the Eridani Federation. We now cross to them, live. Connecting . . . MEI LUO, a middle-aged woman of Solarian descent dressed in a black suit, stands at a podium. A small pin with the emblem of the Sol Alliance is attached to her suit jacket. Emblazoned on the front of the podium is the same emblem, but larger. She is flanked by all members of the Board of Five, and behind them, a white wall with the Eridani Corporate Federation logo. LUO: “Good evening, citizens of the Eridani Corporate Federation. It is with a heavy heart that I address you tonight. Our head of state, Prime Minister Michael Frost, was found deceased three days ago. This is a devastating loss for our nation as a whole, and we implore everybody to remember him how he truly was; a hero, for the people of the Alliance.” MEI LUO pauses for a moment, as she flicks through a few papers on her podium. LUO: “We are confident in our accusation of Zavodskoi Interstellar for their hand in this heinous act. Rest assured, justice will be secured. For now, I will hand over to the Board.” MEI LUO folds up her papers, and then speaks once more in Sol Common. LUO: “For the Prosperity of all Eridanians, and for the Sol Alliance.” MEI LUO steps back from the podium with her papers, leaving room for Amon’s corporate representative; KALI AKERELE. AKERELE stands at the podium, her posture rigid and firm. She speaks succinctly, with a self-assured tone. AKERELE: “My fellow Eridanians, the news today is grim, but it is certainly no cause for alarm. The Federation will carry on as it always has; hardworking, prosperous, and above reproach. We will aid our esteemed Solarian colleagues in this deal, and ensure the continued wellbeing of our nations.” KALI AKERELE turns a page as papers rustle in front of her for a moment as well, before she continues. AKERELE: “Also, some of you may notice an increased presence of our Private Military Contractors in the coming days, whether in the streets or in your workplaces. We assure you, as always, they are present only for your safety and protection. Be sure not to interfere with any of their operations, and follow any instruction given by them to the very letter. That will be all. Thank you.” The feed fades out, fading to black, until a ‘Replay’ icon appears over it. Translations available in: [Tradeband][Sol Common][Tau Ceti Basic]
  18. WARP ACHIEVED; SPEED ACROSS REGION INCREASES EPSILON URSAE MINORIS - Probing Discoveries of Unknown Investigations has sent a communique via the Communications Relay housed within the Lxzti Station confirming the development of the ‘Czjkan Drive’ - a crude warp drive capable of breaching FTL speeds. Whilst inferior to the bulk of those created by humanity; relations amongst the galactic community haven’t been cordial enough to allow for the transfer of schematics involving more advanced warp drives. Whilst the ‘Czjkan Drive’ is said to require immense amounts of energy, it is said to double, if not triple, the speed in which the Epsilon Expeditionary Forces can reach the outermost reaches of the developing nation’s sphere of influence and is expected to be capable of reaching Qerrbalak in merely sixteen months - exponentially better than the previous thirty-six months the trip would take. Capable of achieving 0.032 light-years per day, it is considered one of the more faster engines produced by the species. The construction of a new generation of vessels, known to the greater scientific community as ‘Thok-Class’, will begin test runs on Gnisep 18 Jzki-Wxi, which when transferred to Tau Ceti Standard, is November 14th. The invention of the ‘Czjkan Drive’ is said to bring a time of prosperity, paving new pathways as well as increasing the region’s ability to protect their borders from vile plunderers. Military Overseer, Growing Hunger of Insatiable Greed, has stated that all efforts will go forward to improving the ‘Czjkan Drive’, as well as the weaponry aboard the new Thok-Class Vessels. Cheers to you reader, and good luck to our siblings in the Epsilon Ursae Minoris System - forging pathways through sheer might!
