    RAM TAH ANNOUNCES NEW DISCOVERIES


    The engineer Ram Tah has revealed that his request for pilots to investigate possible Guardian sites has yielded significant discoveries. Several new Guardian sites have been found, and a great deal of data has been recovered. The data has already resulted in the creation of Guardian-inspired technologies.









    THE GUARDIANS: THE GALAXY REACTS

    There has been a range of reactions to the discovery of new Guardian sites, and to Ram Tah’s development of Guardian-inspired technologies.


    Federal President Zachary Hudson expressed hope that the new technologies would “defend our citizens from Thargoid aggression,” while Alliance Prime Minister Edmund Mahon struck a more said that “Ram Tah’s efforts to expand the boundaries of science and knowledge will make us rich indeed”.

    THARGOID SURVEILLANCE IN THE PLEIADES


    Aegis has launched an operation to monitor Thargoid activity in the Pleiades Nebula. The tri-superpower initiative has established orbital surveillance installations at six locations in the Pleiades as part of the Eagle Eye initiative. The installations will monitor systems where Thargoid surface sites are known to exist.









    COLONIA CAMPAIGNS CONCLUDE

    The Colonia Council has announced that its campaign to build a security installation in the Colonia region has been warmly received by the galactic community. Large quantities of material were delivered to Dove Enigma over the past week, allowing the initiative to move to the construction phase. The Colonia region also received a massive quantity of weapons, courtesy of an initiative from the Arek Crimson Vision Corporation.

    Now you're linking OA's videos instead of putting actual news in this? Just put him on payroll already.

    Chieftain ship kit, it's been what, a week and half, and there's already micro-transactions ready to go? Getting tired of the greed FD.

    "We hope you're enjoying exploring Beyond – Chapter One" Kinda hard to do when C&P is so broken. Maybe you should have a beta before you release content to make sure there are no game-breaking bugs, oh, wait...

    Hooray for everything. \o/

    Ugh. The Chieftain gets a ship kit right out of the gate while others have been languishing in kit-less hell?

    Give the Keelback some love already!
