    Title: Fujin Tea Plantations Celebrate Bumper Crop


    Plantation owners in the Fujin star system have reason to celebrate, as this yearís harvest has yielded a bumper crop of the indigenous herbs that are the primary ingredient in the famed Fujin tea. The proposed dayís festivities have been set aside however as the systemís deeply traditional Movement for Fujin Labour government have made it clear that it will be work as usual.

    A small number of locals questioned the decision, and have recently begun speaking out against the rigid structure of Fujin society, protests which have thus far gone ignored. Protestors have threatened unspecified action if they continue to be dismissed, and policing has been increased around tea warehouses throughout the system in the event of sabotage.

    Some Federation commentators have expressed suspicion about the working conditions amongst the lowest classes on the plantations, but the Federal government has maintained a strict policy of non-interference.

    Title: Roche Rentals Issues Ceti Sector Advisory


    Roche Rentals issued a service advisory today regarding their availability guarantees in the wake of travel delays to the Empire.

    A recent surge in one-way reservations to the Arjung system has left their fleet in a precarious position, as hubs are forced to work overtime to redistribute their fleet of long-range craft to normal levels.

    "This is the first time since tourist delays associated with the Olympus Mons eruption of 2877 that we have needed to temporarily suspend our 24 hour rental availability. It is regrettable that our Hauler fleet has been spread so thin these past few days, but rest assured we are working as hard as we can to fulfill your reservations," said COO Sophie Han during a press conference at Roche Rentals' headquarters in Ekhi.

    According to an anonymous source within the company, the company is preparing to file suit against the Imperial Slave Association regarding recent contractual disputes. When the Circular reached out for clarification, Han declined to comment on these reports.

    Cheers Ian, shame this little pun didn't make it to the press:

    No explicit timeline was given for the investment but, off the record, an insider was reported to have said 'soon'.
    I guess 'soon' is 'now'
    Thank you!

    Commemorative Space Race.


    For immediate publication.


    Leesti, Hanneng, Latoras, Dao Jungu, Edenapel, HIP 18609, Apurarai, Chediq, Ba Narr, LHS 2936, HR 4749, HIP 82964, Hurusalki, Khodia ( or global )


    To commemorate "Star Wars", the classic audiovisual entertainment series from the 20th and 21st century, the Buckyball Racing Club, sponsored by Leesti Azure Milk, presents the first episode of the galactic race:

    The Kessel Run.

    The race lasts from 31. October 3301 00:00 GMT until 15. November 3301 23:59 GMT. It is starting from George Lucas station in Leesti and ends in the Jabbah system, a few hundred lightyears outside the bubble. Between start and finish, the participants have to dock at every station and outpost named "Kessel" in no particular order.

    There will be three racing classes: Regulation Solo Sidewinder, Regulation Solo Cobra Mk III and the Open Unlimited Spec class.

    George Lucas station has graciously agreed to give registered racers preferred launch priority over normal traffic. Reckless flying, however, like boosting out of the entrance, will be punished as usual.

    Title: Welcome Corporate Philanthropy


    Pan-Galactic Mining Corp, in conjunction with Snoquot Plc, have organised corporate donations amounting to thousands of tons of mined material, in support of the proposed Nebula star station.

    Several large shipments of freshly mined material have already been delivered, with more to follow.

    A spokesperson for the joint venture commented, 'we believe in the project, and we foresee new opportunities for commerce if it succeeds. We see this as both a charitable effort, but also as an investment in the future.'

    TITLE: Imperial Instigator Arraigned

    Lord Corwin Ryan, leader of the Prismatic Imperium, was arraigned today on multiple charges related to the recent blockade of Dawes Hub in Achenar. Most charges amount to misdemeanors, but others are more serious.

    One notable case involved bio waste canisters dumped by protesters inside Dawes Hub. Said canisters burst open upon vessels belonging to Imperial, Alliance, Federation, and Independent delegates. This resulted in great embarrassment for the Empire in the eyes of visiting dignitaries.

    The most serious charge involves the disruption of System Security during a time of high alert in response to credible threats of violence from Emperor’s Dawn. The civil disobedience led by Lord Ryan jeopardized the safety of not only Dawes Hub, but Capitol as well. Pending investigation into potential complicity with Emperor’s Dawn, charges of sedition may also be levied against Lord Ryan.

    One mitigating factor may be the wayward Lord's saving grace; having turned himself in, the courts are more likely to be lenient in sentencing.

    Title: A Distant Thunder


    In the depths of space a struggle for dominance has emerged between forces loyal to Archon Delaine and those of Sirius Corporation.

    As the core systems become increasingly crowded and diplomatic friction grows, attention is turning to the new frontiers offered by Sothis and its neighbour, Ceos. Although isolated, these systems show great promise for future growth. Kumo commanders are understood to want Sothis as a smuggling hub, while Sirius wishes to consolidate its position with the two systems after recovering from recent financial problems.

    Observers from other galactic powers will view these developments with concern, particularly in the nearby Utopian commune of Takurua and also those working to establish a new station in Merope. Speaking recently, notable exobiologist Jan Holtzman who is stationed at Takurua was despondent:

    “These new worlds should bring us together in the joy of scientific discovery, not tear us apart with rivalry and war. Such acts will be our species undoing."

    Title: Loose the battle, but not the war


    During the CG Kaushpoos CMDR of the Blacks Birds squadron have had heavy losses against the pirates of the system. They lost many ships (Their loss is about 100,000 Mc), but they fight until the bitter end to help merchants. Upon their return to their system, they will be preparing for a new fight against crime!

    Title: Diamond Frogs Mercenary Company Poised to Expand
    Description: As the Diamond Frogs continue to experience one of the greatest economic booms in the history of the organization expectations are high that they will leverage their considerable fiscal and combat resources to expand into nearby territories. Many are curious as to why the former mercenary unit, now a dominant faction within the system, has not done so already. Possible theories explaining the lack of action from the Diamond Frog directorate range from an abundance of caution to accusations of outright embezzlement and personal enrichment. Major parties of nearby systems, particularly Fugeirones, remain on high alert.
