Operation IDA’s Target is Electra this week. If you want to keep the bubble safe, we need to keep the pleiades and witch head stations repaired.
The AXI and Factabulos have reported that Taygeta, Evangelis, Lembass and HIP 16813 were all hit this week (Sorry Titan’s Daughter I did try). Stations are on Fire and there were AX Conflict Zones. In addition, the Eagle Eye Network has reported the following systems being infested ;-

Real world feedback from a friend in the US – comparing the Lenovo Mixed reality set to the Samsung (Lenovo apparently already better than the rift)
“So after going back to the Lenovo, here is the easiest explanation I can give you. If you were to get 2 40 inch televisions, one being of 720P and the other a 1080P, and you watched the 720P TV so close up that only what was right in front of your eyes was clear, but slightly pixelated and the edges blurry unless you turned to look at them, but then you sat far enough away from the 1080p to see the entire thing clearly, but the pixels are hardly noticeable and everything looks really good and clear, that’s honestly what it feels like to me. When I got my first 1080p tv and go back to watching our old spare bedroom 720p tv, from a distance it looks alright, but it’s definitely visibly different. It makes it hard for me to go back to. That’s how I feel with the Samsung. Now just for the HMD’s that will take us to the “4k from 1080p” stage :grinning:”
