[CCN] Colonia Hub Ceremony

The Colonia Citizens Network celebratory event at Colonia Hub






Upon the completion of Colonia Hub, CCN held a vote on whether to adopt the new base as the in-game symbolic headquarters of the CCN, and the Colonia Council faction as the favoured NPC faction of CCN (should its members wish to engage in the Colonia background simulation).

On Sept. 15th 3302, the vote ended with 82% in favour of the proposal and 18% against.

As such, this proposal has been adopted by the CCN as of September 16th 3302.




Please note that this is a semi-roleplayed story arc.

CCN seeks to be a community free of political in-fighting and petty squabbles over finite resources and power, as we all have infinity on our doorstep. As such, we will not be embracing Powerplay. However, the background simulation (BGS) is the mechanism by which players affect the game world, and it can't be ignored - not least because every player group active in Colonia will be engaging with it. Therefore we feel it is appropriate to allow players to support CCN through in-game actions, should they wish - which is why we've adopted the Colonia Council as the favoured NPC faction.








Announcement (15 Sept 3302) :

Dr Kaii, Obsidian Ant, Souvarine, and Erimus have been in discussion with Zac today regarding CCNs role within Colonia.

As you are aware, CCN was set up to bring cooperation and coordination to many of the individuals who helped the colony foundation take shape. A place that helped promote the colonist identity, a place where the civilian population could come together, interact, and socialize on many different projects. Despite the lack of coverage by official channels, we've been assured that this endeavor didn't go unnoticed. To cut a long discussion with FD short, Colonia Hub and Colonia Council are the in-game nod to the pioneer colonists who have worked on this project since the beginning. We did suspect this at the time of the Hub's appearance but weren't quite sure. We've been assured that this is the case.

Additionally, Colonia Council are the neutral faction of Colonia. It is a permanent faction - meaning that it cannot be ousted.

Last week CCN proposed a vote to adopt Colonia Hub as its 'symbolic home'. We no longer need to use the word symbolic - Colonia Hub is the in-game home of CCN, and Colonia Council its associated faction!

In the long term what does this mean? It means that individual colonists who do not want to be associated with power blocs or player run factions that are coming to Colonia, still have a rallying point - a neutral NPC faction that is the face of CCN in-game. Whatever FDs final decision is on the proposal they made via the group leader email, CCN colonists (and individuals not associated with CCN) will have a place in Colonia!

Colonia Hub will act as the focal point for all CCN activities; from where colonial expeditions will be launched, a place where the Colonia Militia will be based (unless FD accept our proposal to build a dedicated HQ for the militia), and the place where all colonizing groups can come and become signatories to the mutual defence pact of Colonia if they so choose.

To celebrate this achievement, CCN will be holding a ceremony at Colonia Hub - details below! Twitch Stream



Date : Sunday 18th Sept.
Time : 17:00 Gametime
Private Group : Fleetcomm


The ceremony will include a flyby of several Colonia Militia Forces squadrons, as well as a celebratory SRV jaunt around the hub itself by all attendees, should they wish to join in.

Everyone is encouraged to bring plenty of chaff (if you have it), and deploy it during the flyby!

There will also be a short speech made by Etiene Denain - founder of the Twin Candles (the initiative to ship families of slaves out to Colonia during the August Exodus and free them at Jaques station to start life anew, free and equal). Compatriot Dalilah William may also say a few words too.


Its been a busy three month journey: from the moment Jaques was discovered and Michael Brookes' hint that player actions could forge what happens out in Colonia, to this very moment in time. Hundreds of players representing multiple groups, from across the Empire, Federation, Alliance, and independent worlds, have for the first time set aside political ideologies and agendas and banded together to create something unique out here, 22,000 light years from humanities' birthplace.

A colonial identity has finally been born, and Colonia Hub and the Colonia Council are to be its in-game face.

We encourage all colonists and visitors to the Colonia Nebula to join us for the ceremony. For those who can't make it, there will be a Twitch stream. o7

What you have achieved so far (June - September).

Rescue Jaques
- the initiative from the early pioneers who shipped meta alloys to Jaques, to bring the starport back up to full operational power.
The August Exodus - A Jaunt to Jaques - the expedition that sowed the seeds for the CCN project.
The Twin Candles Initiative - a roleplayed event that gave a foundation narrative to the first colonial militia movement.
The IGER Initiative - a roleplayed exploration event that was the foundation for the creation of a central communication hub for colonists.
The Colonia Citizens Network - bringing it all together under the Discord communication hub, and fostering that cooperative colonial identity that is at the heart of CCN's mission.
The Colonia Militia Forces - born out of the Twin Candles event, the birth of the Colony's first line of defence - The Colonia Militia, and the newly-formed Colonial Marines.
The Colonia Nebula Project - the independent initiative tasking players to completely survey the Colonia Nebula for colonization candidates.
The Colonia Gazette - the Colony's first newspaper -containing a wealth of information and articles on colonial life.
Building the Neutron Highway Grid - encouraging players to help the mapping team map out a potential Neutron Highway between Colonia and the bubble.
The Outlander Challenge - encouraging players to begin a fresh save or buy a 2nd account, and try their hand at making a living as a colonist.
Colony Events Night - set up and sponsored by CCN and set to be a weekly occurrence for colonists to take part in.
The Colony Badges of Merit - community-created content that rewards colonists for being active members of the community.
The Guardian Angel Mission - tasking the Colonia Militia to protect the Sagittarii Conflux shipping lanes between Colonia and the Bubble.

Good work everyone!

I really wish I could be there, but I'm still way outside of Jaques!

Would have been funny to do a fly by with my orca in the middle of a group of escort cobras or something :)
 
Very suitable that Olivia be the one to announce this! Congratulations everyone :D
Agreed. Olivia got the ball rolling with the Meta Alloy highway to Jaques, and now we have come full circle.

Sundays event is the end of chapter 1 of the Colonia adventure. The foundation community and the infrastructure to build upon it is in place... lets now write chapter II together :)

I too have come full circle and this event has re-galvanised my game time participation so much, I'm now playing daily again after a full years absence.

Colonia fulfils my original vision of players having an independant base in the game. An area of space outside the 'bubble' which demands real effort to reach. A place where pioneering, exploring and commitment are seen as normal characteristics of those who live, work and play there.

The mining and exploration CGs were a great bonus after the Jaunt to Jaques Convoy arrival, as one event after another has brought the place alive.

Can this idealistic vision continue and thrive? Well you, the pilots of Elite* will decide - but the foundations laid by the names above, deserve the respect of us all.

Fantastic job Cmdrs. o7


(* including any "as yet undiscovered" entities) !
 

Of course, the FoJ are all part of the same community, CCN are just one aspect of it. Dynamincbob was one of the first people I spoke to about the colony community initiative and we have worked together.


Colonia Hub is there for all - whether they are solo players who never interact with another soul, or independent player groups that see the neutral faction as the one for them.


I'm still going to Colonia in my Sidey. :)
How is CMDR Grunwald progressing on his Outlander Challenge? - have you reached the Sagittarri Conflux yet?

Would love to attend, but I'm still 15,000 lightyears away enroute. Won't make it by the 18th, but you have my very best wishes for the event!

Cheers,

Drew.

Not yet, but I'm almost there. I'm really "slow" explorer - it has nothing to do with a FSD range of ESS Black Ribbon, just too much shines around. And a real life takes too much time. ;)

Shame, I'm in the Conflux at the moment as part of a Colonia Militia mission there, but I'll be leaving for the colony tomorrow. Would have been good to meet up with an Outlander out here! :D
 
The end of a chapter with this magnitude can only mean the beggining of an even more epic one! Can't wait to see what the future has reserved for the pilots that are (and the ones on their way) around this new colony, but it's certainly nothing that we can't overcome, acting as a tight-knit group the Colonia Citizens Network is!

Congratulations, commanders!
 
Congratulations to you all, it seems I've reached you just in time to celebrate, hope to make it Sunday evening.

Have fun and be proud of what you accomplished, Commanders !

Congratulations everyone! It has been a pleasure working with this community to get to this point. Sadly, I will not make it to this well deserved party. I have services to attend at that time. Enjoy the festivities and spray some extra chaff for me! =)
 
Im really proud to be a part of this Colonia :)
Currently trying to get back fast enough to see the Ceremony.
Congrats to everyone that helped building this awesome Space colonie.
o7 Fly dangerously and lets meet up at Jaques bar :)
 
Great to see so much effort from So many people. I'm going to still TRY and make it for the ceremony on Sunday (Monday would have been better for me but with my crazy work schedule any time that is good for me probably sucks for 99% of the rest of the world).

The Earth Expeditionary Fleet (the explorer-friendly side of the Earth Defense Fleet) really want to rally more support to building the new bubble around Jaques as a safe haven for all humanity and a place where politics as usual does not apply.

Yay us!

CMDR Flirble Rasok is currently back in the bubble to expand his fleet, so have a Still on him in Jaques Bar. Just one mind you, after all, he flew to Jaques in a cleared account and in a Sidewinder...

Wow! This is exciting news! Assuming we'll need Horizons to participate I can't be there, but it'll be nice to feel like we've actually affected something in the game! Congratulations everyone.
