UPDATE 02/03

It's repaired!



We did it - thank you Commanders! Also thanks to Canonn for making Maia a stop for Gnosis, most helpful! :)

Well done and fly safe all!

Note that Operation IDA is still in progress, after Oracle was repaired, the focus is now on Malthus Station.





Original post

Commanders!

I write to you today not as an independent pilot. Not as a member of Federation, Empire or Alliance. Not as a faction leader, not as a trader, pirate or soldier. I write to you as a HUMAN.

As we all know, the Thargoids are attacking our stations in Pleiades. Most of the damaged starports belong to Aegis, unfortunately some of them belong to other organisations as well. And while I understand that some of you may not like Aegis (I'm not a massive fan myself, however I do appreciate that they gave us some means to fight the Thargoid threat), I think that we cannot remain indifferent to the wrong of the inhabitants of those starports, especially the ones that don't belong to Aegis.

One such starport is the most iconic stations in Pleiades, the very first one to be build out there, and the one most of you are familiar with: Obsidian Orbital.



Millions of lives have been already saved by the brave Commanders that risked their lives in the burning stations, evacuating civilians to the nearby rescue ships. All those people now don't have anything, their life is in ruin and the station they called home is completely destroyed, a wreck of once magnificent Ocellus Class Orbital Starport.

Obsidian Orbital can be saved however! The station authorities put out a request for the required commodities in order to bring the station back online and repair the damage.

The demand is extremely high. There are other stations that need repairing, but if we want to save them, we need to take it one step at a time and focus our effort on a single starport. We need to unite as humanity and show the aliens that we're not only capable of destroying their ships, which I know many Commanders don't condone, but also repairing the damage they have done to us!

This brings the Cerberus plague to mind. I'm sure many of you will remember that. It spread drastically across the Bubble and only the concentrated efforts of many Commanders focusing their actions on a single starport at a time has led to the successful development of a vaccine and subsequently to the full wipeout of the plague.

I feel the same is needed today. Our history is marked with conflict, war and animosity towards each other. So today I call all of the Commanders! Let's put the differences aside, let's put the internal conflicts and prejudice behind us and UNITE AS HUMANITY in order to SAVE OBSIDIAN ORBITAL - the oldest and most iconic starport in Pleiades!

It won't be easy, it won't be quick, but I truly believe that if we all concentrate our efforts we are able to succeed! The list of required commodities and tonnage is below:

Indium - 2,924,083
Gallium - 843,842
Titanium - 288,677
Copper - 273,398
Aluminium - 380,131
Synthetic Fabrics - 1,248,946
Polymers - 429,080
Water Purifiers - 367,658
Robotics - 1,180,174
Ceramic Composites - 243,978
CCM Composite - 237,970
Insulating Membrane - 267,479
Power Converter - 245,588
Natural Fabrics - 238,400

The Winged Hussars, will be sending our first convoy tonight - departing from our capital system of HR 8444, we will deliver the first batch of required goods, mainly Robotics - so that the repair works can start immediately. Over the course of coming days and weeks we will be sending independent pilots with haulage to slowly but steady bring the station back up. We hope that you will join us in our efforts, as the only way we can succeed is to get as many pilots involved as possible.

Are you with us, Commander?

Communism Interstellar will start deliveries immediately and prevail upon our Border Coalition Partner to join the rescue

The Border Coalition are in hasty negotiations to redirect tonight's joint Navy exercise and provide cover for your convoys.... just waiting for the mercs to wake up!
 
Haulage isn't the problem.

Maia is an Anarchy, and well known as that. NPCs I can handle in my freight train. A wing of dedicated player killers I can't. So if some people in dedicated combat ships want to prevent Maia being repaired, they will effectively get what they want.

Ninja'ed.

Depends on the mode the "relief convoy" uses.
PG? Nah.
Solo? Nah.
Open? Well merc wing, so mostly possible.

Again contribution as far as i know,
comes form all modes.
There is no real way to counter something
in this game.
 
It's an anarchy system with ok star port and non-Aegis controlling mafia.
What's not to like? Ok... the grind is meh. But I will only do one run.

Let all other stations burn/rot. This one is worth saving though ;)

Why should I have interest in saving a station that kinda invaded thargoid space? A station in an ANARCHY system, where humanity isn't even able to properly organise itself? of all the <Nope> in the elite universe this is one of the leats "savior" worthy. Humanity would have more important things to save that THAT.

but good luck to the commanders trying.

Does Obsidian still need Basic medicines, or should I divert to one of the burning stations? I normally haul indium to the repair stations, Obsidian was paying 6000cr/t for Medicines a few days ago, am en-route with 520 tonnes.

@Lily from anim.o.v.e, I and many others where exploring Maia well before Obsidian & Palin turned up, I guess we all invaded thargoid space (although something tells me Pleiades isn't thargoid space)

Obsidian was one of the first community built stations, I'd say that is worth getting it back on line. Am not in any rush though..

Not sure about the medicines, but they are defo not a required commodity to repair the station. They may still be worth some money in OO though!
