Thargoids and Barnacles

Surprise this Friday morning, the pilot Mcjamz made a rather amazing encounter on the surface of the system Pleiades Sector OI-T C3-7 A 6 || -42.7773 // -21.7150, near a Barnacle. The event was also reported on Pleiades Sector OI-T C3-7 B 3 || -41.3795 // 67.1302 and could occur near all Barnacles in working state and not guarded by the Superpowers.

A first contact with an Unknown Ship, supposedly of Thargoid origin, has been made in February; But this last contact is quite surprising: the ship stops and then seems to turn over the Barnacle to establish a kind of beam-link between them. A scan? Transfer? Refueling? The mystery remains but the galactic community now have more data to work on, in order to better understand these two events. According to multiple explorers, the ship seems to suck something from the Barnacle because the gravity changes near the site, and goes towards the center of the unknown vessel.

In the meantime, a new Gamma site from the Guardians has been discovered while I prepare the new version of our Guardians guide. Feel free to read the History of the Guardians which is up to date!

◘ June 1st – Recent reports from Jotunheim indicate that the Autocracy of Jotunheim, an Imperial-aligned organisation, has entered the system with a remit to bring it under Imperial control. Regional authorities have opposed the incursion, and have authorised the Revolutionary Jotunheim Resistance to drive the Autocracy of Jotunheim from the system. The Revolutionary Jotunheim Resistance has also issued a call to independent combat pilots for support, promising to reward those who lend their aid. The Autocracy of Jotunheim has issued a similar plea. Meanwhile, peace activist Jasmina Halsey has surprised commentators by placing an open order for performance enhancers, armour and military grade fabrics, which she has pledged to donate to the Revolutionary Jotunheim Resistance in support of its operation. The Yum Kamcabi Purple Life Industry is coordinating Halsey’s appeal. Anticipating the furore her decision would cause, Halsey released the following statement:

“I know I will be criticised for intervening in this conflict. But if those who oppose this war believe it can be stopped through peaceful protest alone, they are mistaken. If we do not help the people of Jotunheim, they will lose their homeland. We cannot stand idly by.”

◘ June 1st – The Empire and the Federation have released statements announcing the successful conclusion of their respective campaigns. Both superpowers received huge quantities of construction material over the past week, allowing them to start work on new outposts in the Pleiades region. The Merope Expeditionary Fleet and the Pleiades Resource Enterprise have extended their gratitude to those who supported their campaigns.

◘ June 3rd – Recent reports from the Pleiades Sector OI-T c3-7 system indicate that the so-called Unknown Ships have begun interacting with the region’s barnacles. Eyewitnesses report that the ships have been seen targeting the barnacles with some kind of energy beam, apparently in order to extract matter from them. Pilots have also reported that their ships and SRVs spontaneously lose power while in proximity to the Unknown Ship. The news follows reports that the Unknown Ships have been seen at the locations of mysterious attacks in the Maia system.
