16 Jan 3305 - Provisional Constitution of the Hastati Astral Liberation Party

There is a cancer growing in the heart of the Empire. This cancer started as an honorable way for citizens to absolve themselves of the shame of debt. This cancer is known as slavery. The honorable state of indenturing ones self to another to pay a debt quickly became a way to institutionalized coerced...

Found on the way back from LTT 3928 and is a neighboring system. While there is a gas giant there are no rings there or around any other planet.

Week in Review

Here are this week’s main stories.

The Empire has entered a state of conflict with the isolationist group Nova Imperium in the Paresa system. Senator Denton Patreus issued a call to Imperial auxiliaries to help destroy the Nova Imperium fleet. Imperator Mordanticus made a similar appeal, saying, “I urge all those who believe that Hadrian Duval should be the Emperor to support us.”

A luxury star yacht belonging to famous actor Consuela Knight has reached its destination with nobody aboard. Computer records confirmed the crew's presence until a few minutes before arrival, when all five crew members vanished. Engineering and hyperspace experts have begun analysing data to unravel the mystery.

Meanwhile, the Interstellar Health Organisation is reviewing Vitadyne Labs’s nanomedicines, which the company has admitted are based on advanced technology developed by Utopia. Many in the medical community have argued that Utopia should share their revolutionary medicines, but investors have already pumped millions of credits into Vitadyne Labs, convinced that profits will run into the billions if these nanomeds become the galaxy’s hottest new commodity.

Finally, supply campaigns for the Federal and Imperial navies have concluded successfully, with traders delivering large amounts of military provisions. The factions responsible for the parallel initiatives thanked pilots who contributed.

And those are the main stories this week.

Vitadyne Nanomedicines Prompt Ethical Dilemma

The Interstellar Health Organisation (IHO) is currently reviewing Vitadyne Labs’s nanomedicines, which the company has admitted are based on advanced technology developed by Utopia.

Healthcare analyst Dr Himari Grey discussed the situation via Vox Galactica:

“There are always ethical considerations when approving new medicines. But in this case the IHO has more to consider than usual, not least Pranav Antal’s formal complaint that replicating Utopian technology without permission is tantamount to theft.”

“Many in the medical community argue that it is selfish of Utopia to hoard such revolutionary medicines. As these nanomeds are capable of treating many illnesses and injuries, surely the potential health benefits outweigh questions of ownership.”

“On the other hand, investors have already pumped millions of credits into Vitadyne Labs, convinced that profits will run into the billions if these nanomeds become the galaxy’s hottest new commodity. If that happens, only the very wealthy will be able to afford Vitadyne’s product.”

Flashpoint for Nova Imperium

Political journalist Cassia Carvalho has reported on the current conflict with isolationist group Nova Imperium:

“In recent weeks, Nova Imperium has become a genuine political force. Tensions have now erupted into open conflict in the Paresa system, with Imperial Navy auxiliaries attempting to destroy Nova Imperium’s fleet.”

“In return, Imperator Mordanticus has called on the galactic community to fight for Emperor Hengist’s long-lost grandson Hadrian Duval to be recognised as an heir to the throne.”

“Whether this is a one-off battle or the beginning of an Imperial civil war, the outcome of the Battle of Paresa will influence the future of the Empire.”

Empire Engages Nova Imperium

The Empire has entered a state of conflict with the isolationist group Nova Imperium in the Paresa system.

Senator Denton Patreus announced:

“The loyal Imperials of Yupini Limited have engaged the isolationists’ illegal armada. We call upon Imperial auxiliaries to support our allies and destroy the Nova Imperium fleet.”

Imperator Mordanticus, leader of Nova Imperium, has requested the support of the galactic community:

“Nova Imperium’s survival depends upon winning this battle. I urge all those who believe that Hadrian Duval should be the Emperor to support us.”

The two factions have set out week-long campaigns to overcome their foes, which will begin on the 10th of January 3305.

Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Jr., USN (25 October 1888 – 11 March 1957) was an American naval officer who specialized in feats of exploration. He was a pioneering American aviator, polar explorer, and organizer of polar logistics. Aircraft flights, in which he served as a navigator and expedition leader, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, a segment of the Arctic Ocean, and a segment of the Antarctic Plateau. Byrd claimed that his expeditions had been the first to reach the North Pole and the South Pole by air. However, majority of polar experts are now of the opinion that Roald Amundsen has the first verifiable claim to each pole. Byrd was a recipient of the Medal of Honor, the highest honor for heroism given by the United States.
