Welcoming acknowledgment fellow oxygen breathing bipedals.

We shall now begin reviewing the data that summarises the passage of time for seven of our Terran planetary rotations.

MILITARIES ON ALERT AS TARANIS APPROACHES - 28 November
The big scary space thing is getting closer to human space! With the Kingfisher having done a rather unceremonious die, is humanity really ready for an intergalactic species to crash our party? I bet they won't even bring a gift.


VISTA GENOMICS BOOSTS BIODATA PAYOUTS - 29 November
Do you like science? Do you like cash? Do you like science AND cash? Well Vista Genomics has a special update just for you! They're boosting payouts of biodata so you can make big moola by waving a torch at a plant and trying to embarrass it into giving you information.


TARANIS UNLEASHES THARGOID INVASION FLEETS - 29 November
Taranis has arrived in Hyades Sector FB-N b7-6 and the Thargoids are here to introduce their new fashion line of "fiery doom". Taranis itself is really rocking the catwalk this season with vibrant shades of swirling maelstrom and caustic death. One fashion reporter is quoted as saying "Agh! My eyes!" which can only mean Taranis glamour is destined to be a bit hit.


HAVOC AS THARGOIDS OVERRUN MULTIPLE SYSTEMS - 30 November
Thargoids are like buses. None for ages and then several of them run over your mate Dave. A whopping nine systems are desperately calling for help as Thargoid ships devastate the systems. Looks like they've a little bit of a bee in their bonnet after Salvation's unsuccessful attempt to obliterate them, meaning the attacks are significantly more merciless and brutal than before. Ships are being wrenched out of hyperspace, stations are being set ablaze and understandably people are a bit panicked. With even more signals on the way it's looking a bit bleak for humanity.


NEW MAELSTROMS INCREASE THARGOID CONQUESTS - 1 December
Who had imminent death in their advent calendar for today? Mines a milk chocolate effigy of a station spiraling into chaos, despair and agony...Oh it's orange flavoured! Maelstroms codenamed Indra and Leigong have arrived in the HIP 20567 system and HIP 8887. They've quickly swarmed these areas with Thargoid vessels and the human cost has been staggering. Gosh, I hope there aren't more of these on the way...


That's it for this week. We'll be back next week with more of the news you've already read, so sit back, relax and chill out to the ambient sounds of society falling apart.

If only we had been better prepared.

In the time frame we have been entertaining the Thargoids humanity in their past went from flying in Biplanes to the edge of the speed of sound in a similair time frame.
We have AX weapons and Guardain stuff none of which have improved at all since being released.
Conflict drives technology in most cases except here in fdevs world.
 
At least the torch doesn't spin and make you match patterns anymore...

Still, there could have been some exciting opportunities in engineering for exobiology. A new engi appears that does mods for:

  • Less travel distance required for diversity
  • The "torch" to have bins like refineries so you could store multiple specimens
  • An upgrade that only needs one sample to complete the requirement instead of three

One can dream :D

I thought this was going to be the best thing in the thread this week. Until...

:ROFLMAO: Genius!

How about a marker to show you the direction of the next closest sample? Something to make the experience less painful. I'd take it over all the others because at least you would have an idea of where to go rather than hoping back into your SRV to use the Free Camera, or Ship to skim the surface :)

This almost ended many careers in exobiology before they began…

…being able to engineer up the sampler with additional memory slots would’ve been great…

One can dream :D
…but at least exobiologists have now received a pay increase in line with our many long hours of work - Fonticulua FTW! 😅
