    OPERATION SIRIUS BUSINESS

     

    Operation Sirius Business is a diverse coalition of independent commanders representing numerous player groups from across the galaxy. 


    'We have the aim of forcing conspirators who have been manipulating human affairs for the last 1,000 years to reveal themselves. Operations will focus on any and all aspects of the background simulation that will help us cripple Sirius Corporation's influence,' explain the organizers in their press release.

     

    The group do not intend to make Sirius completely inaccessible, and to ensure this doesn’t happen, they are not attacking Sirius within the Procyon system, and have also posted guides on how to get the permit easily.

     

    Lore aside, the organizers are looking for people to join from both sides, both for them and against them, to create the most interesting community event possible.


    You can join them on their Discord channel to find out more.

    HARMA SILVER CARTEL APPEAL


    The Harma Silver Cartel has announced that it intends to bring back a beverage that has been lost for several hundred years: rum. The Cartel has placed an open order for a range of rare alcohols that will be used to create the new beverage, and promised to reward those who deliver the requested commodities to Gabriel Enterprise in the Harma system.









    ABROIN UNIVERSAL PLC CAMPAIGN CONCLUDES


    A press release from Abroin Universal PLC has confirmed that the organisation’s appeal for construction materials has been enthusiastically received by the galactic community. Hundreds of pilots responded to the appeal by delivering commodities to Campbell Horizons, the organisation’s base of operations, and by eliminating pilots in the Abroin system in order to protect traders.

    HARMA SILVER CARTEL APPEAL
    Gabriel Enterprise, Harma


    The Harma Silver Cartel has announced that it intends to bring back a beverage that has been lost for several hundred years: rum.


    Reports indicate that the organisation recently discovered a time capsule from the 24th century containing a recipe for the drink, as well as the log of one Captain Smolenski. Although the Cartel is keeping the recipe secret, it has placed an open order for a range of rare alcohols that will be used to create the new beverage.

        

    The Cartel has promised to reward those who deliver the requested commodities to Gabriel Enterprise in the Harma system. The organisation has also promised to bring the drink to the market under the name Harma Silver Sea Rum, assuming the campaign is successful.


    A spokesperson for the organisation released a brief statement:

           

    “We will create the finest rum since the days of piracy on the seas of Earth. After all, a pirate isn’t a pirate without rum!”






    But the announcement has antagonised other pirate organisations in the Harma system, many of which have threatened to blockade the Cartel’s base of operations and attack pilots delivering alcohols to Gabriel Enterprise.


    To counter this threat, the Harma Silver Cartel has placed a kill order on all ships on its wanted list, and promised to reward pilots who deliver bounty vouchers to Gabriel Enterprise.


    The two-pronged initiative begins on 27th of July 3303 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.ere

    Thank you, Frontier, for again choosing one of my screenshots. It is an honor.

    The paintings of the courier are exciting

    Well, that Coriolis blueprint gives a reminder of just how darn big the stations truly are - the Majestic looks tiny in comparison.

    To be fair, there is news in this one, the frontier expo. It's not much news, but it is news, so you can't say there's none.
