Week in Review

Here are this week's major stories.

A member of the Council of Admirals, which commands the Alliance Defence Force, has been murdered. The League of Reparation has claimed responsibility. It has been confirmed that an ancestor of the victim, Fleet Admiral Buchanan, was a senior commander in the INRA. It has also been suggested that the League's assassins are being aided by sympathetic individuals in positions of influence.

Meanwhile, an increasing number of religious movements in the core systems are proclaiming that humanity is on the verge of destruction. The return of the Thargoids has led to the emergence of dozens of radical groups, and although their nature varies, the message is the same: the apocalypse is coming. Authorities have responded by restating that the Thargoid threat is being controlled.

Scientists in Colonia are investigating the region's potential to support larger populations in the future. Professor Alexei de la Vega, who is leading the research, published this statement: "Over the past few years the region's population has expanded ferociously, so it has become a priority to investigate how Colonia might support even greater numbers, and what kind of infrastructure would be required. This research requires a range of specialised materials, for which we're prepared to pay handsomely."

In other news, a convoy travelling through the core systems has come under attack from a pirate group, and local authorities are requesting assistance in finding survivors. Search-and-rescue teams have been despatched, but the volume of debris is significant, and independent pilots in the area have been asked to lend their support.

Finally, a spokesperson for the Moritasgus Imperial Corporation has announced that its appeal for commodities has been enthusiastically received by the galactic community. Hundreds of pilots supported the initiative by delivering commodities to Vaucouleurs Vision, and by protecting traders in the Veroklist system.

And those are the main stories this week.

Fringe Doomsayer Cults on the Rise

An increasing number of religious movements in the core systems are proclaiming that humanity is on the verge of destruction.

Awareness of the issue has been raised by independent reporter Gethin Okonkwo, who published an article outlining the phenomenon:

"The return of the Thargoids has led to the emergence of dozens of radical groups. Although their nature varies, the message is the same: the apocalypse is coming."

"Some of these groups are distinctly religious in flavour. The Church of the Eternal Void, for example, preaches that the war for human souls is almost lost. Their view of the Thargoids as 'demons from a hellish universe' and the Guardians as 'beings of light who have decreed us unworthy of salvation' runs along classic theological lines."

"Others, such as Generation Omega, stoically accept that our time is almost over. They state that 'superior spacefaring lifeforms will naturally destroy inferior ones, just as our own cultures have overrun each other since prehistory'. Generation Omega plans to build mass euthanasia centres for planetary populations, declaring that the human era deserves to end in a dignified manner."

"Of course there have always been 'doomsayers', and naturally our governments refuse to accept them as legitimate. But that hasn't stopped these organisations from attracting thousands of citizens and millions of credits, with their followers growing in number rapidly."

"During wartime, many people become desperate for the certainty that such belief systems provide. We are likely to see these radical elements increase their influence as long as the shadow of the Thargoids falls over us."

Authorities in the core systems responded to Okonkwo's article by restating that the Thargoid threat is being controlled and that such fearmongering is unwarranted.

Colonia Project Requests Microresources

Scientists in Colonia are investigating the region's potential to support larger populations in the future.

Professor Alexei de la Vega, who is leading the research, published this statement:

"Over the past few years the region's population has expanded ferociously, so it has become a priority to investigate how Colonia might support even greater numbers, and what kind of infrastructure would be required."

"This research requires a range of specialised materials, for which we're prepared to pay handsomely. With these, we can evaluate Colonia's true potential."

The campaign is being run by the Colonia Co-operative, one of Colonia's partner organisations, which has asked pilots to deliver microresources to Foster Terminal in the Coeus system.

The campaign begins on the 17th of May 3304 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.

Salvage and Rescue Operation

A convoy travelling through the core systems has come under attack from a pirate group, and local authorities are requesting assistance in finding survivors.

The operation is being coordinated by Security Chief Tal Wo┼║niak of United Carnoeck for Equality, who made this announcement:

"The convoy came under intense fire from pirates, with many ships damaged or destroyed. We immediately dispatched search-and-rescue teams, but the volume of debris is significant, and we are therefore requesting help from any independent pilots in the area."

"Our priority is to locate survivors, but we're also keen to acquire data that might help to bring those responsible to justice."

Pilots are requested to recover Occupied Escape Pods, Black Boxes and Wreckage Components, and deliver them to Bacon City in the Carnoeck system.

The campaign begins on the 17th of May 3304 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.

Moritasgus Imperial Corporation spokesperson Superintendent Arnold Cochran released the following statement:

"We are pleased that the faith shown in us by the Empire has been rewarded. The expansion of facilities means we can now safely contain some of the worst criminals in the Empire."

Pilots who contributed to the initiative can now collect their rewards from Vaucouleurs Vision in the Veroklist system.

I was gutted when I heard that on the round ups of Tv cuts, hopefully one of the streaming networks will pick it up. Some of the best SciFi produced for a while, shame syfy seems to be loosing the plot lately they don't seem to want to keep hold of anything past 3 or 4 seasons.

SyFy is not ordering a 4th season of The Expanse.

It's the best Sci-Fi TV show since B5 IMHO (and one of the highest rated/reviewed ever) but SyFy only have the Live broadcast rights and as we know the target audience is going online for their TV shows.

Many fingers crossed that Netflix/Amazon etc pick it up.

I feel another Babylon 5 style rollercoaster coming on.
