    [COMMUNITY] Deus Ex Machina Initiative



    After reading the following article: http://the-onionhead.ovh/2017/06/17/thargoids-have-returned/, some Cmdrs met and agreed that something must be done to push members of this "Club" under the light.


    Foreword


    Salomé’s day.


    April 29, 3303 is an historical date in many ways.
    It offered us an opportunity to organize ourselves on a much larger scale than we had ever done before. The remains of this organization are still active and can be considered as the foundation of a broad movement.
    By allowing Cmdrs Raan Corsen, Tsu Annabelle Singh and Yuri Nakamura to reach Teorge, this organization allowed them to released parts of the message that Cmdr Salomé wished to give us.
    This message, recorded by Rebecca Weston, told us that the superpowers and the mega-corporations were fully aware of the imminent arrival of a much worse threat than the Thargoids in its time, and, several decades ago, had discreetly organized a mission to find colonizable systems that could serve as a hideout for mankind once the new threat was brought to action. These logs have also made it clear to us that those same superpowers and mega-corporations are being manipulated by a shadowy organization.
    Since then, we have been able to find the last will of Cmdr Salomé, left in a relay on a medical hub. It confirm all this:

    Challenge the authorities. Force their hand. Refuse to be manipulated. Do not rise to their provocations. Make your own powerplays, organise embargoes and blockade the ports. Break their hold and force them out into the open. Blaze a trail. Visibility is the one thing they cannot abide.


    To date, this puppetmaster has still not been identified.
    We can therefore say that all the policies currently being implemented in the historic inhabited area of space are based on an agenda which we do not have any knowledge.



    Mega-corporations


    Wreaken Construction & Mining has been operating secretly in the area of Col 70 Sector for the past several months. The whole area is permit locked. It is clear that the corporation's activities in this sector are important enough for people with great power to force the Federation of Pilots to give access to this sector to the mega corporation and its employees . Wreaken is most likely only the performer of an operational part of this project, of which we know nothing.
    An incident came to shed some light on all this, which the authorities quickly tried to pass for an industrial accident.
    Cmdr Scarlett Ashcroft then launched a protest movement that, given the resources available to the Cmdrs, was successful. She was assisted by a pirate group operating in the area: The Ghost of Col 70.

    Sirius Corporation has a relationship with Wreaken Construction & Mining, a strong and historic bond. The mega-corporation bought the start-up MetaDrive Inc. last year to put its hand on its patents. This would be a revolutionary FSD engine.
    As long as Sirius holds the exclusivity on this technology, it is unlikely that we will ever have any benefit of it.
    That is why The Ghost of Col 70 decided to launch the blockade of Procyon, an important system among those controlled by the mega-corporation.



    The Superpowers


    The Federation, the Empire, and later the Alliance, are embarked on a race to control alien resources.
    The Federation quickly set foot in the Maia system, and the Empire quickly followed suit.
    The tensions between the two superpowers have never ceased to rise since then in the region of the Pleiades. They climbed a notch above when the Federation assigned Pr Palin to residence in Maia.

    Professor Palin leads very important researches for humanity. He is a specialist in alien technologies, and we owe him a lot of what we already know.
    Very recently, he has made a series of major discoveries, and the Federation has decided to send agents to steal his data while wiping out his databases.
    While their convoy was on their way to the place where these datas were to be “safely stored”, the convoy was attacked by unknown ships. Much of this data has been saved but not the convoy.
    The traces left by the attack on the federal vessels suggest that it could have been performed by the Thargoids. This general feeling is reinforced by a short message issued on site by a totally intact communication relay saying that the Thargoids were back.

    It should be noted, however, that shortly before Professor Palin was victim of the theft by the feds, he had clearly identified the unknown ships that we recently encountered as thargoids. Thus, the military hierarchy aboard the federal convoy had enough informations to indicate that it had been attacked by Thargoids if that had indeed been the case. Now, the computer of the cruiser Farragut speaks of unknown ships.

    The singularity movement, launched very recently, has as main claim the total withdrawal of the federal forces of Maia, as well as the lifting of the house arrest that weighs on Pr Palin. This is to let him work in peace, but above all, so that we can be sure that the results of his capital researches will end up in the hands of all.



    Deus Ex Machina


    The intervention of a divinity being able to undo a desperate situation impromptu, the expression can be extended to any resolution of history that does not follow the internal logic of the narrative but allows the dramatist to conclude his play of the way he wants.

    We can see that, here, the Thargoids are perfectly fit for this role.

    Remains to discover who wrote the story but needed this Deus Ex Machina to drive it where we are now.


    Goals



    The puppetmaster we are dealing with is an expert in concealment and manipulation that hides his traces and existence so well that he may have remained in the shadows for many decades, perhaps more. We do not even see the strings that are used to animate his puppets.

    However, a puppeteer can never play his show if his puppets are broken.

    So we must logically attack his puppets if we want him to come out of the shadows where he is hiding.

    His puppets are :


    • Mega-corporations
    • Superpowers



    The operation


    July 4th is a date that makes sense in the history of the ancient Earth. This is the date when the US emancipated itself from the yoke of the British Empire.

    That is why we chose to launch the operation on 4 July 3303.

    The operation itself, the details, the targets, the dates and places, nothing will be publicly communicated until these elements are in progress.
    Deus Ex Machina Initiative is conceived as a grouping of actions carried out by many groups on different targets.
    We will therefore communicate on all these elements once the operations have begun, for obvious reasons of security.

    We don’t have a lot of tools in hands to move the lines, but these we have could be powerful. But we don’t expect to see some results quickly.
    Deus Ex Machina Initiative will be probably a mid-term, or a long-term operation requiring patience, tenacity and involvement. Fast results are not impossible but we must stay on the ground : our targets are the entities the most powerful in the Galaxy.

    Any group, wishing to join the operation can do so by contacting the liaison officer by pm here. The code of invitation of the server discord serving for the coordination will then be sent in response. 2 Cmdr per groups maxi. Each group come with an operation project, then join the discord after sending a link to the operation by pm, and coordinate with others.

    As it was the case on April 29, 3303, each group is invited to organize as one wishes. He will send representatives to liaise between the Board of Deus Ex Machina Initiative and his group. The Board of Operation shall be composed of all such representatives and each shall have the same rights and duties as all others.
    All on an equal footing, all united towards a single objective: to bring out of the shadow the ones who manipulates the whole Galaxy, to force him to publicize all he know, or at least, all he believe to know.

    List of the groups publicly involved (will be updated as soon as necessary)

    - Singularity Mouvement
    - The Galactic Contengincy Fleet
    - Operation Burn Elites

    Some of this stuff might be considered spoilers for Premonition. Remember, it's only just come out - might want to put most of this stuff in spoiler tags, and give people a chance to read the book before blasting it publicly over the forums. After all, it's not clear from your title that it contains Premonition related material.

    I'm not asking for myself, I've read the book and understand where you're coming from, but some have expressed they are starting to have problems avoiding spoilers while they wait to read the book.

    Sorry guy but, in fact, and as mentionned on the OP, this was wrote long before Premonition's come out.

    I like it!
    There are three basic types: The Wills, The Won't, and the Cant's
    The Wills accomplish everything, The Wont's oppose everything and the Cant's will not try anything.

    Do I get that right?
    After the epic failure of PAC. The same people try to use the same failed concept again?
    Claiming to fight against "a puppet master" while doing what they do secretly without telling everybody else for reasons?
    Apparently completely ignorant of the irony, claiming that their secret organization is working for the good of humanity?

    And as a cherry on top everybody who is willing to serve them and follow their orders is welcome into that "new" organization?

    Wow, it's hard to come up with something like that as a satire.

    Instead of a vertical organization, as it was with the PAC, the aim of Deus Ex Machina Initiative is to be an horizontal coordination board. All the envoys send by groups will be equals. All the groups will have their own operations.
    Deus Ex Machina Initiative is not an operation by itself but a way to coordinate ourselves and having the same goal, the same objective, but with the same communication.

    The goal of Deus Ex Machina Initiative is not the same as it was for the PAC.

    Singularity is full committed to this endeavour. Our current goals are centred on Maia, and the Freeing of Prof. Palin, but our vision has always been to establish a network of cooperating groups, who, together, can achieve a common ambition that none alone could. The democratization of rebellion, if you will. If we can learn only one lesson, if should be not to place your trust in the few.

    We must also recognise that the Federation, Empire and Alliance, vast though they are, can be brought down by the actions of a thousand Cmdrs. We have no head to strike against, and with no common infrastructure to blockade, they forces and doctrine will be useless. We will strike how and where we choose, and vanish into the blackness of the void. We will not fight by their rules, but by guerrilla tactics.

    Liberté, égalité, fraternité

    Almost as vague as Salome herself.
    If I don't respond, I apologize. I'm too busy playing the game.

    To the Galactic Community:

    The Children of Raxxla will not tire and promise and proclaim that they will use all their resources to expose those who would through unethical methods put humanity at risk. We will continue Salomé’s work, knowing that had she not been silenced by the Cartel, she would not have rested until she had identified and named and shamed them for the whole of humanity to see.

    We have
    published a chronicle in which we relate the revelations in the aftermath of 29/4 and the recent release of the Teorge Logs; and what follows after...

    As more information about the conspiracy and those who are behind it becomes available we will continue to add it to this chronicle.
    Let knowledge be our tool to bring them down.

    This we owe her legacy. Remember!


    In this universe there are only three conditions for you: You are either part of the solution, part of the problem or part of the landscape.
    This system is accompanied by only two choices: You accept it or you change it.

    That is a great work Cmdr !
    Greatly appreciate to see that the Children of Raxxla are still there and never gave up after the dramatic events of the last april.

    +1 rep to the Op. I'm seriously contemplating jettisoning Elite out of my life, however if decide against that, I'll be working in coalition with you.

  15. #15
    Tell me by pm when you'll decide what you want to do
    You'll be very welcome.
