New research and recovered Star League technologies have led to a technological renaissance.

Daedalus Local News: Daring Rescue under Heavy Fire.
This just in, Lt. Samara Hellstrom and her lance, Hellstrom’s Hellions, saved a landtrain that had been ambushed by a lance of unidentified terrorist battlemechs. With no fear the Hellions charged the enemy, who outmassed their mechs by over two to one!
Under Lt. Samara Hellstrom’s brilliant leadership, the hellions pulled off a daring rescue and saved the landtrain and passengers without losing a single one to the terrorist attackers.
Preliminary reports indicate this was a reprisal attack against Lt. Samara Hellstrom personally, but the indomitable lieutenant won through again. Despite the mismatch, Hellstrom’s Hellions drove off their attackers and once again protected the people of Strata.
Who were these terrorists? I am sure we will find out soon with Lt. Samara Hellstrom on the job!
