We've just won our first terraforming station. I have no doubt that with all of the industrial stations we've taken recently, we'll be able to get this job finished far faster than the government previously controlling it!
Khodiwobogi Exchange confirms exit from Theta Indi
Miners contracted to Khodiwobogi Exchange faced a surprise on Wednesday as they found offices meant to accept their scheduled shipments closed without prior notice.
"I heard shares been fallin' for days, but none of us knew things was this bad. We've been out in the belts for days tryin' to meet quota and then we get here and there's no one to accept? What am I supposed to do with this ore? It's supposed to be contracted to Khowibodogibogi but they ain't in the system! I'm not even sure if I'm allowed to sell it to someone else!"
Khodiwobogi Exchange's shares had been falling for several days, as rumors persisted that the corporation's operations in Theta Indi were struggling with security. Repeated requests for comment have been met with official silence, but anonymous sources within the company have suggested that shipping losses in less secure parts of the system were significant over the last two weeks, and that system authority, managed by the local Federal government, had been unwilling to provide requested security.
"Frankly," said one source, "we are Imperials and relations with Crimson Netcoms Dev had been cagey since Senator Torval left Regira a few months back. Corporate sold our offices, so at least I'll get my severance."
Our anonymous source declined to say to whom the Exchange's offices had been sold.
Khodiwobogi Exchange offices sold to Praetorian Curiate Assembly
Shuttered depots and offices closed by Khodiwobogi Exchange earlier this month have been re-opened by the Praetorian Curiate Assembly, which has announced it will be offering all of the Exchange’s previous contract holders new contracts with favorable rates.
“We believe that any Imperial’s word is his bond, and we are ashamed that miners reliant on business with the Khodiwobogi Exchange were left in the dark recently. We will be honoring their contracts and have even gone so far as to pay for quotas met by the Exchange’s miners, which were unable to be sold. We look forward to guaranteeing the security of these hard-working pilots and their crews moving forward,” stated Esquire Taliyah Duffy.
“We of course,” responded Theta Indi Crimson Netcoms Dev representative Andrija Mathieu, “welcome the Assembly. We continue to place tremendous value on our relationship with Senator Denton Patreus and are committed to proving that the Empire and the Federation can exist as partners in our region — as we did under Senator Torval for several years.”

Our full archive for this system has been published and is available here.Patrician Kiera Bishop of the Praetorian Curiate Assembly visited Betancourt Base this morning to announce that the station's clients had agreed to follow Curia Jurre Aarstma into her government's feudal system.
"Our government, our Senator, our navy, and our Empire rely on the cutting edge that is honed in this system. The technologies that we create here will brighten the futures of our people, and it will lead our nation forward through dark times. Patreus has placed great trust in us, and we will not fail him.
HIP 101846 is one of the Empire's most critical high tech economies, and the most important holding of Senator Patreus outside of Eotienses itself. Its twin high tech coriolis stations, supported by an array of outposts and planetary installations, produce distribute advanced technology and the Admiral's garrison supplies throughout the sector.
Historically governed by the HIP 101846 Empire Group patron network, the arrival of the Praetorian Curiate Assembly in November saw Duke Alden Rowe's feudalists challenge a major Imperial patronage for the first time.
