Interstellar News: The Clan Pirates, Threat or Menace?
In interstellar news, reports are still flooding in about border skirmishes on the outskirts of Federated Commonwealth territory in the periphery edge of the former Lyran Commonwealth. The Lyran-Draconis border has been targeted by the mysterious ‘clans’, a minor power exploiting the contested border between the Federated Commonwealth defenders and raiding Draconis Combine forces.
The valiant Lyran forces have continued to hold their ground and defend their homeland against all invaders.
If you would like to contribute to the official relief fund to help support reconstruction efforts and humanitarian aid for the embattled border planets of the Federated Commonwealth, please donate using the quick-link provided. Your contribution will be much appreciated and go a long way to supporting our brother and sister worlds holding the line across the Federated Commonwealth.
Planetary News: Comm Guard Reinforcements.
As part of our strategic alliance with the Comm Guards, some lances that were training here on Strata have shipped off-world to engage the pirate clan, to gauge the threat. Demi-Precentor Saul Walker has made a rare public statement, saying that the harsh conditions training in the lowlands and the alternative tactics required will be employed to give a tactical advantage in engagements against the pirate clan.
Replacement Comm Guard personnel have arrived, and their lance leader Adept IX-Epsilon Bryce Alexander expressed his eagerness to commence lowlands training and to work alongside our local defence forces.
On behalf of SNN let me say “Good hunting” to our Comm Guard allies.
Daedalus Local News: Bandits Routed.
A special task force formed by Hpt. General Lucius Morgan has routed the bandits threatening the mining settlement of Argyre. Led by Lt. Samara Hellstrom, she is a recent arrival from the Lyran half of the Federated Commonwealth, and an expert in small unit tactics and anti-piracy campaigns. Her crack team of mechwarriours hunted down the bandits hidden base and made short work of the outlaws.
Are these the last of the bandits? Have we seen the last of piracy upon the lowlands miners of Argyre? Only time will tell! But we can breath a sigh of relief knowing Lt. Samara Hellstrom and her team are on the job!
