Anti-Xeno Initiative – The Anti-Xeno Initiative has announced its intention to provide its flagship fleet carrier – The Astras, with an experimental paint designed to hide it from the Thargoids. The carrier is to be a spearhead for anti-xeno operations and will act as a safe haven for pilots to restock and repair. The AXI Science Division issued the following statement:
“It was recently discovered that a sufficiently thick coating of Thargoid blood, combined with a mixture of various Thargoid materials, can provide effective camouflage for capital-class structures. Our experts believe that a combination of factors can cause the bio-mechanical systems of Thargoid ships to mistake a human-made vessel for one their own, and ignore it. We intend to test this using our flagship. If our hypothesis is true it will have a secure platform for offensive operations in hostile space. Unfortunately, our existing supplies of Thargoid Hearts and Meta-Alloys are tied up in other projects, so we do not have enough to effectively cover the entire vessel. We are also out of some other commodities that would allow us to further experiment with the formula.”
Cannon are running an open competition to create a video based on or around the Gnosis. The topic is completely up to you. It could be a documentary of the megaship’s history, It could be a completely fictional drama, a megastructures style documentary of all the technical features. How about a mockumentary or a music video? Perhaps you could do a better job of creating a commercial advertising the tour guide than we did?. You decide.
Closes 3rd of September 3306
Winner announced 10th September 3306
Prize: The winning filmmaker will receive one of the fabulous water flasks shown in the picture. You will also be able nominate up to two other people for a flask so you can reward any commanders who assisted you with the video.

IDA reports the repair bug which has been plaguing their efforts in the Pleiades has been fixed and so are redoubling their efforts to take repair.
Anti-Xeno-League and Cannon have reported that the Eagle Eye Network is pointing at Deciat, Large amount of Non Human USS’s have been spotted in the system. However, the AGEIS Megaships are nowhere near it, so the High Paying Thargoid Massacre missions won’t count in the defense of Deciat. If we lose this system, do we lose the Engineer as well as the station?
Cmdr Drakins from the East India Company for helping us stockpile Lavian Brandy on Monday whilst LRN was between Lockdown and Civil Unrest.
“Certain Alliance factions” who don’t like LRN having Lave are actively murdering our ships which is causing these states. We’re doing what we can to counter it, but they seem to be insisting on locking Lave Station down, removing the brandy and stopping ppl from unlocking Didi Vatermann in Leesti.
On Monday as we were between states we helped to resupply the EIC and if listeners need brandy to unlock the engineer whilst supplies are low then contact Cmdr Eid LeWeise or Cmdr Whoeva in game and we can help you out.
EIC have asked us to let commanders know that most trades will take place within 24-48 hours depending on the availability of the goods and our traders.

This week the Thargoid presence has encroached even deeper into the populated human bubble. One of the Evangeline’s Elite Expeditionary Force(EEEF) and its member’s prime mission is to guard and protect all of humanity. Countless lives have been lost and it seems there shall be no end to the bloodshed soon.The EEEF Commander in Chief, Evangeline has issued a call to all independent CMDR’s,”The Thargoids have swept through our systems and our defenses like a hot knife through butter. Nothing has stopped them. Until such time as the Galactic community can band together to find an effective solution, we must persevere. At this rate, in a mere matter of weeks the Thargoids could be to Sol, or anywhere. No Galactic power is safe, no human is safe. We are running out of time to fight back. Sacrifices need be made for the greater good. As of this week the latest system to be attacked, Bhal, lies only 77.04 ly .from where I stand. This evening, I covertly sent out word to the stations in outpost in our home system of Shana Bei to prepare for evacuation. The EEEF and my Angels intend to buy time for systems in the path of the Thargoids advancement time to evacuate to safety, or to mount a defense. This move will hopefully allow more time for the Galactic powers to come up with a strategy to turn back the Thargoid Threat. The EEEF’s primary mission will be to shield humanity and hold the aliens for as long as possible.I ask not that anyone place their lives on the line for us or my members, all that I request for Operation: Chronos is the delivery of Meta Alloys and other Thargoid attracting materials to be dropped outside of Chu City in Shana Bei. I hope this will entice the Thargoids to make a move towards us where we shall attempt to ambush them and delay them as long as possible.
Long Live Humanity,
ArchangelEvangeline’s Elite Expeditionary Force

Counter Argument The logic of no defence being the stronger defence: Why myrmidon should NOT send in defenders if serious about friendly first contact. If a player wishes to harm alien they can do so at will in private group or solo. You cannot defend against it. You can only outrun it. Sending defenders into open play 1) wastes resources. 2) draws attention 3) encourages hostile activity to the area, some of which might resort to private or solo to bypass any defence. At no point does sending defenders to the area increase the security for the alien, it only puts them more at risk. Finding first. Finding quietly. That is how you protect alien life, first contact. To do otherwise is to contradict the stated aims of the group..
Sham Gaz & members of the Google+ Exploration Community were already arranging a Convoy to Jaques when the CG started up, so it’s kind of been moved forward.
A Route to Jaques following many pretty places such as Thor’s Eye (Black Hole), The Skaudai Nebula and The Kes-75 Magnetar which is a double neutron star system (a magnetar in real life) and sits on the very western tip of the Norma Expanse. The magnetar – a type of neutron star with a magnetic field so strong it could rip the iron out of your blood from many thousands of kilometers away,
“EDTracker is proud to be sponsoring Lavecon this year; Lavecon and the Elite Dangerous community have been a pivotal part in EDTracker’s success so it seems all the more fitting that we can put something back in for the people who’ve helped get the project off the ground. Toggle that headlook and fly dangerous, commanders!” – http://edtracker.org.uk/
