    REPORTS OF MYSTERIOUS ATTACKS

    Reports have surfaced of mysterious attacks in the Maia system, where eyewitnesses claim to have found the remains of a number of Federal vessels. According to reports, the damage to the ships’ hulls was not consistent with any known form of weaponry, and observers claim to have seen the so-called unknown ships at the wreckage sites.









    TROUBLE IN COLONIA


    A number of unauthorised outposts have been detected in the Eol Prou Lw-L C8-215 System. A spokesperson for the Colonia Council confirmed these outposts are currently occupied by group of agitators. The Junkyard Dogs have therefore placed a kill order on all wanted ships operating in Colonia.

    HAYLEY STAGES ANTI-WAR PROTEST

    Former Federal president Jasmina Halsey held a public demonstration in the Alioth system yesterday in protest of the ongoing conflict between the Empire and the Federation.

    Thanks Jenner!

    How AWESOME is that Generation Ship video!

    The player vids are excellent too, many favourites in there and congratulations to Stardust.
    But that ghost ship is too spooky for words.

    First the alliance take her shiny new megaship off her then to add insult to injury her name is misspelled in the news story about her big peace demonstration.

    Agreed, discovered ship video is good.

    HAYLEY STAGES ANTI-WAR PROTEST

    Former Federal president Jasmina Halsey held a public demonstration in the Alioth system yesterday in protest of the ongoing conflict between the Empire and the Federation. More than 30,000 people attended the event, which lasted for several hours and occupied one of the main public plazas in Nerah City on Argent’s Claim.
    Alliance officials have reaction with a certain degree of surprise to the galactic wide news reporting on a minor protest held by the former Federation President. "Mrs Halsey is free to express her opinions and organize protests, as she is a free Alliance Citizen, but the attention this rather small gathering has generated seems out of proportion to the event, which didn't even cause minor traffic congestion"
    Onlookers seemed mystified to the purpose. One local Aliothan said "Nobody likes war, but it is hard to see what she is trying to achieve with this other than her own pubicity. We are well aware of the cooperation between the Federation and Empire, and as a former president of the Federation, so is she". Another expressed concern: "I hope this doesn't mean she will provoke the attention of INRA, especially considering the information recently released by Salome's comrades. I'd prefer it if she found herself a quiet villa somewhere on Miller's Rock or something"

    Who is Hayley? I know typo's happen but including it in the title of an article is sloppy.

    I blame...

    Oh never mind.

    Damn! I've seen all of Turgan's vids and that was the best one yet. Excellent use of the new camera system and Cmdr creator features, and great writing and acting as usual. A well deserved win but all the vids were great. Good work Cmdrs!

    This week's newsletter is definitely a huge improvement on the one from last week. Though I don't have a PS4, the official release date does make me very happy, & I love the news of Dolphin Paint-jobs & about the CTRL-ALT-SPACE competition winners (am I the only one who thinks that the Galnet we see in Frame Shift Zero is exactly the kind of Galnet we need in-game? ). Also, lots of intriguing news regarding the mysterious things going on in the galaxy!

    Now lets hope that one of the next 2 newsletters features an official release date for 2.4 .

    The most important thing that needs to be mentioned in a newsletter, not the flotsam and jetsam we get each week.
