Cornsar: Pranav Antal territory. I am curious how Utopia will be connected to this.
I'd expect there to be evidence of that - like the Transmitters that were luring Thargoids into the bubble under Aegis's watch.My thoughts exactly.
Sounds like they've built some kind of psi emitter. This totally looks like a setup to discredit Aegis and strengthen their support.
Good thought. Nearest AWs to Cornsar, according to Spansh, areThe line about the network not being complete makes me think he's gonna be in the right area, just not the right system. Maybe a nearby system with ammonia worlds? And then a potential CG to complete the network at some point.
It could probably be narrowed down a bit by the prescence of a large station to burn, plenty of the nearby ones just have outposts. I might have a snoop around some of them, but I don't expect to find much.Good thought. Nearest AWs to Cornsar, according to Spansh, are
- Guede (24.89 LY)
- Coquessa (27.81 LY)
- Kambila (34.24 LY)
...and then a bunch more over 40 LY
SALVATION WARNS OF THARGOID STRIKE14 SEP 3307
The anonymous figure known as Salvation claims that Thargoid forces will shortly launch an assault in the Cornsar system.
The following message was received by all major newsfeeds:
“This is Salvation. Authorities in the Cornsar system must evacuate the local population immediately. I believe a Thargoid invasion of the system is imminent.”
“I became aware of this danger while developing a new interstellar xeno-detection network, which will be far superior to Eagle Eye. Although the network is not fully complete, we cannot dismiss this report as a false reading. Cornsar must act now.”
Carter Armstrong, a chief administrator with Aegis, delivered an official statement:
“Aegis cannot validate this claim. There is no indication of a Thargoid presence in the vicinity, and Cornsar is too far from their known territories to be a viable target. As most of our operations are suspended due to the public inquiry, we cannot dedicate any resources to investigate further.”
There was also a response from Marshal Noah Sharrow, who governs the Cornsar system on behalf of the Allied Cornsar Constitution Party:
“We have no interest in the games of one-upmanship between Aegis and Salvation. Nor do we believe for a moment that the Thargoids would go out of their way to harass us.”
Eagle Eye was 0 days notice. By the time it pointed to a system, Thargoid Scouts were already there. They also didn't broadcast its results, though maybe that was because they realised they'd be ridiculed for warning about an attack on a system only to have the inhabitants say "yeah, we know".This is looking like a pretty shoddy detection system - only 2 days notice and maybe not even the exact system... Even aegis managed better than that
The other irony is that ants don't like flour- cornstarch would mess them up if Thargs are ant like..... Cornstarch.
Sorry, that's all I can read Cornsar as.... (cool! sounds like a bunch of people gonna die)
Well, yes and no. Since you had a week and could actually use the scouts to stop the incursion. But anyway, please do carry on trying to teach me how eagle eye worked, we could do with more laughs around hereEagle Eye was 0 days notice.

Well, if we're going by the arrival of Scouts, we're still getting more warning since there aren't any Scouts in Cornstarch yet. And if it's just going to be an attack without a week of Scouts beforehand, which is very likely, it's still more warning than Eagle Eye, which hasn't predicted any of the recent attacks or this one, as it says in the article.Well, yes and no.

and the last two are:These might be two more of the defecting factions:
- Union of Hanung Tzu Confederacy
- Wolf 1323 Crimson Energy Systems
https://community.elitedangerous.com/galnet/23-AUG-3307 claims ~50 / dozens planning to secede, depending on source, so they could do another rerun with some more factions if they wanted. Having established with the above that Corporates and Confederacies are also planning defection ...Edit: Though ofc these have already flipped to independent, so they can't do the usual 'CG with tiers that decided who defects'. Though they could do one where the feds get to 'persuade' different factions to rejoin.
