Corporations Continue Policing the Sol System



Combined ground and air forces from Thrawn Synthetics attacked and destroyed
a pirate raider base located at 17:17 on the planet Earth on turn 15257.

WELLINGTON - Thrawn Synthetics and Thundersky Inc have destroyed 2 separate pirate bases in the Sol System in recent turns. The pirate groups operating out of the bases were reported to be attacking cargo shipments and stealing the goods being transported. No reports have indicated if the pirate groups were working together, but investigators have noted a similarity in their pirating operations.

The raider group on the planet earth has been linked with over 100 raids on various cargo shipments, with attacks still occurring with some frequency. Though their main base has been destroyed by forces from Thrawn Synthetics, rogue groups appear to be continuing the attacks. These raids appear to be random, with no particular resources being targeted. Thrawn Synthetics reportedly received upward of 63,000,000 credits from the government for their work in defeating the rebels.

Representatives from Thrawn stated, "Thrawn Industries feels that it is its responsibility to act against piracy on earth. We may have been targeted by raiders but even if we weren't, we always act in the interest of Earth." A statement from AristocraTech reaffirmed the defense contract with Thrawn Synthetics, which is given in exchange for his grant of the port of charter. An official stated that "His attack on the pirate base was well within his duties, not to mention his rights" as planetary defender.
Thundersky Inc. has had their own run-in with raiders on the planet Mercury. Representatives from the corporation stated that the rebels attacked one of their industrial facilities located on the planet. The corporation acted swiftly to counter the problem by destroying the raider base. "Thundersky Inc. believes in fixing the problem instead of a single attack," said CEO Lightning Strikes!. He continued, "Thankfully there is a small number of corps reacting to such attacks, as the pirates getting uppity would not be good for in-system trade."

New Cities Growing as Earth Declines



Industrial operations across the galaxy have provided new opportunities for disenfranchised workers on earth. Pictured above are auxiliary support structures of Corp1234567890's metal mining operations on Luyten III.


VALLEJO, LUYTEN VI - As the planet earth continues an unprecedented decline in population, some former citizens of earth have found new opportunities outside of the Sol system.

In the previous 1000 turns, Sector 1 has seen 13 new cities incorporated across 6 different solar systems, ranging from Naertho to Luyten, and even to Centauri, a system which often sees little in population growth. Of these systems, Luyten has seen the most growth, with 6 cities incorporated. Panther has also seen an influx of citizens from earth, with 3 cities being incorporated.

Much of this growth can be attributed to population resettlement from earth. Following the systemic crash of earths’ economy and the lack of sufficient industry and services on the planet, some former citizens of earth have sought new opportunities outside of the planets’ atmosphere.

These workers often find employment at the new mining and production facilities being established across the sector. As more workers resettle to these new locations, communities form around the industry, and a city is soon established.

One of these newly incorporated cities is centered around the expanding metal mining operations on Luyten III. The city, “Bus”, is the first permanent sign of established civilization on the planet, which is a gas giant in the Luyten sector.

Corp 1234567890, among the largest and most influential corporations in the galaxy, owns the metal mining facilities located in Bus. When asked about his influence in the growth of new cities in the galaxy, a representative of the company took no responsibility for the incorporation of new communities. “Humanity spreads just fine on its own, Corporations are needed only to grow it “taller”. I see it as a symbiotic relationship.” Later, when commenting on the future of the city, the representative for Corp 1234567890 stated “I may keep an eye on it, cultivate it as a market for excess goods, and trading.”

Intentional or not, Corp 1234567890, along with several other large corporations, are having a direct impact in the spread of humanity.

Utopia and Ark Cease Hostilities



Mexico City during a heavy bombardment from The Ark Group. Horrific civilian casualties resulted
from the assault on the city. This city represents numerous other humanitarian disasters resulting
from the conflict.


CAPE TOWN - The war between Utopia and The Ark Group is coming to a resolution, according to official statements from members of the Utopia guild. Subliminal, the Vice Chairman of Utopia, issued a public statement declaring that Utopia has been defeated by the members of the Ark guild, and wished to cease hostilities to avoid more unnecessary losses due to war. The statement took responsibility for approving the attacks and also made a formal apology to Ark members.


Subliminal stated: “I gave my approval for all of the attacks and for Razor. I apologize for these attacks and promise to the best of my ability to assist in reparations and as I am fond of saying, “Peace on Earth.” This message was echoed by two other members of Utopia, the Azura Consortium and Broseidon Industries.

Members on both sides have begun to cease hostilities against one another, while plans for an agreement are being established. Machina Morituri had set terms for possible peace agreements that are to be accepted by turn 17155 by members of Utopia. Morituri has presented two options: either Utopia must pay reparations and refrain from any hostile actions for 5000 turns, or face banishment to the Rigil system. It appears Utopia has accepted the terms of the first agreement and will seek to avoid any banishment.

Some corporations appear to be concerned about the terms of the agreement. Umbrella Corp is pushing for mutual disarmament and reparations from Honeypot for damage and destruction of his facilities. Honeypot has not made an public statement at the time of this posting.

BREAKING: Umbrella Declares War with Ark Group, Other Corporations

MEXICO CITY - Umbrella Corporation has just announced itself to be in a permanent state of war against the Ark Group and all its affiliated organizations.

The volatile corporation also declared that a state of war exists between themselves and any other corporation who tolerates a state of peace and neutrality with Ark. In theory this could mean that Umbrella is at war with most, if not all, corporations in the sector. Umbrella has called this decision “final and irreversible”, apparently to convey their stance in the strongest terms.

This announcement of war comes after the long process of ratifying a treaty between Ark and Utopia following the devastating war that killed millions and caused still untold amounts of collateral damage on the planet Earth.

Umbrella has been in complete opposition to the peace terms set forth by the Ark Group, stating that Ark “perpetually puts the community interests in direct confrontation with its own ambitions, with arrogant disregard for Earth based corporations or Earth’s population itself.”

When Umbrella was recently asked by GNN about the state of their relationship with Ark, the corporation stated that it was unable to provide any comment.

Umbrella Corp Dissolves



Industrial centers owned by Umbrella Corp are now vacated, with all valuable materials stripped
and sold for scrap. This otherwise operational production facility now stands as a sobering reminder
of the costs andrisks of war.


MEXICO CITY - In the midst of a dramatic turn of events following the war between the Ark Group and Cygnos, Umbrella Corp has liquidated all assets in the Sector. It is unknown where the company CEO, SkroZ, is located at this time. The liquidation of the company comes after a public statement from Umbrella Corp announcing that an open state of war exists between themselves and Ark, along with caveats that effectively put them at war with all corporations in the game.

Umbrella Corp has frequently cited injustices and bullying from members of the Ark Group. SkroZ was specifically very upset about attacks from Cygnos against assets owned by their sub-corporation, Skynet. Cygnos claimed that these corporations were in violation of the Terms of Use as stated under the subsection “Multiple Accounts and Abuse”. These events were contributing factors that helped start the war that saw Mexico City destroyed and annihilated a Spaceport owned by the Ark Group.

It is unclear if Umbrella will return in the future. Their subsidiary, Skynet, continues commercial operations on Earth. Analysts have been unable to determine how significant the liquidation of Umbrella will be to the operations of Skynet.

Humanity Takes Historic Step Forward

Yrsa, located in Sector 7, is the first system that can be called home for humanity outside of Sector 1. Though
settled on a Terran planet, transmission malfunctions at the time of publishing have not allowed pioneers to
send holo-photos of the newly settled planet over the vast distance yet.


MEXICO CITY – History has proven that humankind continuously seeks and pursues new frontiers – places of promise, opportunity and freedom. This week marks a new milestone for humanity, as settlers have reported a safe landing in a new sector within the Orion Cluster.

The group of pioneers and adventurers has landed in the Yrsa system in sector 7. This system boasts a temperate Terran planet and a rocky planet, along with numerous icy planets and 2 planets with toxic atmospheres. The temeperate planet, names Yrsa I, is where the settlers have established their colony, named Sampo after the leader of the expedition. The system itself is orbiting a type 1 star, similar to the stars at Centauri and Rigil.

The sector as of yet has little involvement from the large corporations in the galaxy. Some of this may be due to inaccessibility of travel to the sector. Experts believe that the travel to Yrsa through the Moon warpgate would take almost 100 turns to arrive. Traveling with the highest powered conventional sublight propulsion could take over 2000 turns to make the journey.

These factors present a temporary obstacle to inter-sector trade, though analysts believe it will only be a matter of time until corporations begin ventures on the planet.

The pioneers to Yrsa consist mostly of disenfranchised peoples who have faced considerable hardship due to the recent warring between Ark and Utopia. These individuals have sought to begin a new life away from the strife and politics that are apart of Sector 1. Unfortunately for these colonists, the problems they have sought to leave behind may soon be following them.

Corporations Establish Roots in Yrsa



Yrsa I, pictured on the left, is approximately 10% larger than the planet Earth.




SAMPO, YRSA I – Corporate pioneers have begun to relocate operations to the Yrsa system as the fledging population there begins to rise. Nearly 3 million people can call Yrsa their home now, with the population concentrated in Sampo, the only main city in the system.

Galactic News has been able to contact the CEO of Torq Tech, Jay Krupp. Torq Tech is the major corporate leader in the new sector. The corporation has relocated their operations entirely to the Yrsa I, and is currently monopolizing almost all of the demands of the growing population there.

The corporation appears to view themselves at the leading edge of progress for civilization. When speaking with Mr. Krupp, he stated that his work in the city of Sampo provides “a new start for the disenfranchised, and a brave new world for those interested in exploring a completely new sector.”

The leadership of Torq Tech sees themselves as laying the foundation for the future of the newly settled sector. “I see Sampo as (…) an anchor. As the first city in a new sector, the success, or failure, of Sampo sets a precedent for the sector. We can expect little to no help from Sol, especially with the warp gates as low a level as they are.”

Torq Tech also appears to have ideological reasons for relocating. During the interview with Krupp, he appeared to indirectly express his frustration with politics in Sector 1. “I look at the new sector as a refuge for those who feel like they have been caught up in all of the politics. They were not able to opt out of them in Sector 1, as the fleets could be redirected with relative ease, especially with the warp gates. The new sector offers them an alternative.”

Torq Tech has currently completed a level 1 warp gate at Yrsa I. This gate provides the only possible way for individuals to travel the long distance back to Sector 1; even with the gate however, the length of the return journey makes it impractical save for the direst of needs.

Automated Goods Handler: the future of logistics



One of the very first Transports to equip the new handling device. Photo courtesy of Serendipity Industries.


It is now a common fact that, every few years, some discovery radically changes how we communicate and exchange goods across the galaxy. Have in mind, however, that we are not talking here about awe-inspiring and mysterious objects such as Artifacts, or huge structures like the recently developed Warp Gates. Let us rather take a moment to reflect upon the humble, everyday improvements that inadvertently alter the way in which we interact with the world.
Not long ago, in an era we now remember as the Terran Revolution, the first spaceships rescued from alien sources were put into service. Soon, humanity left its ancient cradle in search of new opportunities and greener pastures, and technologic development played a crucial role. There would not have been spacefarers and pioneers without the first, if crude, life-support components. We would not be able to send goods to distant stars without hyper-compressed chambers, the ones that nowadays are fitted in each and every space freighter. And we not even need look to the skies: great quantities of cargo can be moved by land thanks to the heavy duty, high-resistance transports that replaced vans, trucks and trailers.

Today, we find ourselves before an innovation which could be equally big. Just a few Standard Turns ago, the mysterious CEO and Head Researcher of Serendipity Industries, Dr. Dread (a.k.a. The Wizard), has issued a transmission from his homeworld in the Panther system, unveiling his latest creation: a humble, deceptively simple device, which was christened the Automated Goods Handler. And what is behind this apparently unremarkable moniker? A most wondrous mechanical unit that can, with minimal human input, store and organize different kinds of goods inside a container. Once packed, the goods are readily available, allowing the transporter to access all different goods at once. This is a huge logistical advantage, particularly in fringe settlements, where proper markets and distribution infrastructure is not yet established. The handler thus saves hundreds of man-hours in unloading, enabling the goods to reach the consumers much faster.
The mastermind behind the device, to whom we already owe Megastructures, has shown confidence that his latest creation will be equally accepted and integrated by corporations across the galaxy. And this confidence was not unfounded, because as today, every single transport, freighter and shipping vessel is already equipped with the handlers. Although some more testing is required to ultimately assess the true capacities of the AGH units, the first results are very optimistic.
When asked about his impressions, Mr. Roddy, CEO of Cross Gen, remarked the economical advantage brought by the adoption of the handlers; by putting into market seven different consumer goods at once, his enterprise managed to earn more profit in a single Standard Turn than ever before. This raised an alarm amongst corporate accountants though: the new technology might accelerate transactions to previously unthinkable rates, and experts are not yet sure if current bookkeeping techniques will be enough to keep track of everything accurately.
Later on, the head of Honeypot Farms, Beortrix, declared: “It certainly is quite the game changer”, referring to the revolutionary nature of the handler, and added: “For example, I have been dumping on my meat in London meat lockers (specialized refrigerated storerooms), and now I can just load an order, and ship freighters out selling to wherever, and even the [low] volume locations can easily be fed for a [long time] from one freighter”. Meanwhile, Geneco from Echos Echo praised the invention further, poetically calling the handler a “gift from the gods”.
However divinely inspired or merely human in its origin, the Automated Goods Handler has come to stay, and we can say that today’s future looks slightly brighter than yesterday’s for corporations.

Imperial Forces Bombard Inactive Research Facilities



Thrawn Industries had a frigate destroyed over Centauri Vd by forces from Titan Industrial. The frigate was attacking
idle production facilities and has caused controversy concerning the overcrowding at Artifact locations.




WAIANAE, CENTAURI Vd: Research facilities owned by Weyland Yutani Corp were attacked without warning by Thrawn Industries in recent turns. One of the facilities, located in Panther, was completely destroyed by advanced scout craft deployed by Thrawn Industries. The other, located in Centauri, was enduring bombardment from an attack frigate before it was destroyed by regional defensive forces owned by Titan Industrial.

The frigate, Jakku II, crashed on the moons surface and is currently under the control of Titan Industrial forces. Titan stated that their actions were conducted in defense of their installations and the other corporations located there. In a press conference following the incident, Titan seemed concerned about the security of their assets in Waianae, stating: “I think the incident emphasizes the lack of security at the Waianae location, and I will thus be posting a permanent garrison there.”

The hostile attacks, which appears to be an imperialistic action by Thrawn Industries, has drawn public questioning from other corporations. When asked about the event, Thrawn issued the following statements: “As Emperor I see it as my responsibility to take action in any and all situations that have a significant effect on Earth based Corporations. My motivation was to reduce the Overcrowding caused by inactive facilities that were costing Earth based Corporations millions in extra credits.” This raises questions as to just how far the reach of Thrawn’s Imperial might will govern.

Thrawn Industries was recently elected as Emperor of the planet Earth. His new administration has moved quickly in changing the established order on the planet Earth, and has made some significant changes to make-up of the orbital structures located there.

During a public forum on the event, Thrawn stated that he had received a warning of intervention by Titan Industrial forces, but did not or was not willing to withdraw his frigate. “I commend his (or her) swift response and behavior. I was not expecting there to be much response thus hitting the location on the way home was practical, though risky.” Thrawn noted that reparations could be made to Weyland if required to keep the peace.

The spokesperson for Thrawn Industries stated that the corporation will “always act in the best interests of Earth in a strict yet approachable manner.” In light of these recent events, corporations will be left wondering exactly how far Thrawn Industries’ “strict and approachable” policy will allow their imperialistic forces to reach.

Sector-wide Terrorism Met with Swift Action

Wrecked hulks of the combined fleet of Peoples Galaxy and WudWerx destroyed outside of the warp gate at Gulyaev V. Salvage crews
are searching the wreckage for pertinent information that could help uncover some of the mystery surrounding the group.


PHOENIX - A sector-wide series of attacks made by what appear to be the combined forces of Peoples Galaxy and WudWurx has been swiftly defeated by the combined security and naval forces of corporations across the sector. Several corporations have declared war on the groups, and have also been exiled from the planet earth.

At this time, most assets belonging to People’s Galaxy– including their corporate headquarters on earth - have been forcibly liquidated by corporations, with the remaining forces to be dealt with swiftly, according to sources. WudWerx still maintains their corporate headquarters in Phoenix, but similar to Peoples Galaxy, has experienced a loss of nearly all of their assets.

Motivation behind the attack appears to be centered on past incidents involving recent catastrophic civilian crises on earth. People’s Galaxy made a public declaration during the conflict that gives some insight into their rationale behind the attacks. The corporation specifically cited the geobooster crash that earth experienced, as well as the devastation of Mexico City during the ARK/Utopia war, as the primary fuel that motivated the attacks.

The statement also included a call for other corporations to join their group.

Jackson Wolf of Black Fleet Corp made public statements about recruitment attempts from People’s Galaxy. Wolf said “[People’s Galaxy] represents a small group of players that want to carry out attacks across the galaxy when the time is right. That it would require making an alt for this purpose, I told him no and just kept an eye on him after that.”

It remains unclear exactly how many corporations are involved in this group, which Wolf has labeled as “terrorists”. At this time GNN can only link the two aforementioned alt groups as part of this movement. Thrawn Industries appears to have leads concerning who exactly is behind the attacks. Thrawn was not immediately available to comment on this matter.

Mexico City Destroyed as Thundersky is Targeted Across Galaxy



The initial bombardment of Mexico City caught most citizens by surprise. Primarily targeting military assets, fighting soon moved into urban centers, seeing most of the cities populated areas reduced to rubble. Civilian casualties are estimated in the millions.


MEXICO CITY – A smoky haze fills the sky over the GNN Headquarters, the location of yet another battle in the often war-ravaged city. The corporation JBD, led by CEO Jimbobdaz, launched a full scale offensive against assets owned by Thundersky on turn 26894. The fighting soon abated as the forces of Thundersky broke under an offensive that was soon joined by several other corporations.

The attack in Mexico City has been reported to have been conducted under the authority of Emperor Thrawn.

This combined operation appeared to be targeting the vast resources Thundersky held in that city. The corporation was rumored to be moving towards liquidation, and many corporations did not wish to see these assets lost. The raids on the city lasted 255 turns in total, finally ending on turn 27149. The raids were not only affecting Thundersky, as the city now stands in ruins once again, after having finally rebuilt following the war with Utopia. It is unclear at this time exactly how many civilians were killed during the fighting and the subsequent operations.
This action in Mexico City has ignited attacks and raids across the galaxy against assets held by Thundersky. Heavy raids are still underway in portions of Luyten, Gilliam, and Mars against the corporations assets. Galactic population loss is expected to be in the tens of millions.

The actions in Mexico City have brought condemnation from several corporations, including Nynoxaff, Madness in the Galaxy, and Echos Echo. These corporations bemoan the loss of civilian life due to the fighting. Corporations involved in the fighting claim they took measures to avoid unnecessary deaths.

When asked about the civilian losses, JBD responded: “Of course we regret the loss of civilians... the loss of so many cheap workers and not forgetting the fine ass is a little troubling but let’s face it... they are only Mexicans, I’m not racist though, my wife is Asian and keeps the house in tip top condition... also I know nearly three black people.”

The continued disregard of civilian life is a disgrace to all humans.
Emperor Thrawn, and all those involved in the bombardment of Earth should be ashamed of themselves.

EchosEchos want it to be be know there involvement in this action happen as a result of being part of a combined fleet originally formed to fight Dark Star, once involvement of our corporation´s involvement in this situation, our fleets where pulled out of the operation, and a public statement was made apologizing for our involvement. Actions made by our corporation was accidental, and closer control of military assets will be taken in to action. Echos Echo position as Part of the EDF can only apologize the the people of Mexico for the lives lost.

Sector 7 Research Facilities Destroyed

A view inside the recently destroyed Research Facility owned by Hunter located on Fievez. This location produced cutting edge technology that was shipped back for use in Sector 1.


FIEVEZ, GILLIAM IV: The most distant settlements of humankind faced turmoil this week as Live Inc attacked and destroyed numerous research facilities in Fievez. The city, located in the Gilliam system of Sector 7, was home to numerous research stations owned by corporations based in both sectors.

Beginning on turn 27962, ground and air forces owned by Live Inc attacked and destroyed the defensive forces owned by Titan Industrial, and proceeded to destroy many of the research stations on the planet. The action has brought condemnation from numerous corporations, stating the actions to be rash and poorly conceived.

Live Inc is looking to invest heavily in Sector 7 according to public announcements from the corporation, and hopes to create a Sector largely independent of outside corporations. When asked about the attacks, Live Inc stated “My actions were motivated because of the people who had come to Sector 7. Some wanted the artifacts, but helped minimally. This seemed unfair to me. Why should they get the benefits while doing little and raise the Ocrowd for people who were helping?”

It appears reparations have been paid to numerous corporations from the inflicted damage. According to Echos Echo, “reparations have been made, though considerably less than the ‘true value’ of such structures.” In spite of this, several corporations appear satisfied with the repayments that have been made.

At this time it is unclear if this action will aid Live Inc with their goals in building Sector 7. A representative from Echos Echo has stated that they will be removing their defensive fleet from the Sector, leaving DianaTech as the primary defensive force in the area. This withdrawal of forces appears to align with Live Inc’s goals in the Sector.

Live Inc currently has ACP assets in route to the sector in an apparent expansion of operations there.

Industries, Orbital Gun Destroyed

A view of the the final detonation of the Orbital Gun over earth as seen from a nearby freighter.


MEXICO CITY – The terrorist group known as Peoples Galaxy has claimed responsibility for a wide range of terrorist strikes over the past 2 days. This includes the orbital gun positioned over earth, maintained as part of the EDF by Echos Echo. Other attacks targeted research stations on the moon, as well as isolated industries in Sol, Gulyaev, and Luyten.

Attacks began on turn 29054 with ground forces operating under the name of Wistermeats attacking earth based transports near Rabat. This was soon followed up with a surprise strike by Peoples Galaxy against the orbital gun, which was destroyed within 2 turns. The attacking fleets moved to attack industries on the moon before being destroyed by combined fleets as part of the EDF.

Approximately one day later, Stellar Voltage began attacking undefended production facilities across the galaxy. Several facilities were destroyed before local forces were able to respond. At this time it appears the offensive forces of the corporation have been destroyed. Stellar Voltage claims to be associated with Peoples Galaxy.

Peoples Galaxy has sent a list of demands that appears to be targeted against all corporations. These demands include the disarmament of all corporations, the formulation of a Peoples Army, and the abandonment of all rulership charters by corporations. These demands are considered extreme and widely considered to meet total rejection by galactic corporations.

It appears that Peoples Galaxy may be run through a network of players, as evidenced by the public comments from Stellar Voltage: “The PeoplesGalaxy is anyone who has grown tired of militarized corporations disregarding how sacred Earth is.” Later he stated that “It might be easier for you to pretend it is only one person, but you are only fooling yourself.”

Corporations are urged to keep defensive forces ready to defend against any further strikes from the group.


Peoples Galaxy did not respond when asked to comment.
