Nhandu (PUC) Assaulted by Empire - 09Dec2011
Empirial squads from the Empire controlled Pardus space were seen approaching Union held territory. Rumor has it that empirial trained starbase combat mastermind Ghorakahn was behind the enemy's movements against strategic union assets. The reasons for the Empire attacking the Union are not clear but most pundits believe that they wish to dominate the known universe and the first step in doing so is conquering all of the Pardusian sectors.

Prior to the assault, the empire built and reinforced two lines of military outposts in northern Baham to interdict union movements into the Purdus Empire Core. From behind this blockade, the empire could easily maneuver and supply their armada of starbase assault vessels commanded by the Empire's General, and longtime Union nemesis, Lucky.

In defense of the Union population and to try and stem the overwhelming empirial onslaught, stalwart defenders of the Union erected their own line of military outposts that the empire must breach before attacking Union aligned starbases. Notable pilots Barthy, Dracula, Eric, Ronno, Bsg, Softsoap,Schatzy and Bella Sangre, as well as ERA's own BladeStar and Wasted Soul, hastily constucted military outposts in Nhandu near the Baham wormhole.

Local citizen milita have been ordered by the Dons of their respective planets to aide in evacuation of those wishing to relocate to any Union home core. Large numbers of transports have already departed for Vega and Sirius as well as locations deeper with in the Pardus Union Cores.

During the previous orbital cycle, at precisely 2011.12.08.22:11, the defensive line controlled by Union commander Schatzy was breached by empirial forces. It is not known yet from the broken reports from the front lines whether or not any empirial forces or starbase assault squads were able to gain entry into union territory. At this time, no attacks on Union controlled starbases have been reported.

Unencrypted transmissions have been intercepted that further support that war is upon us. Much of the information appears to indicate a massive battle between starbase squadrons led by the Empire's leader Lucky and, in defense of our Union, our own BladeStar.

There are dark times ahead as the Union mobilizes to halt the empirial take over of the Pardusian core sectors. The empire recently decimated federal controlled space and seems intent on seizing glory for their emperor at the expense of the Union and free citizens throughout the known universe.

Union leadership is asking for assistance from all available, and willing, combat and logistical spacecraft, qualified pilots and willing recruits. Contact your local Dons or Capos and ask how you can help.



Eastern Pardus Rim Skirmishes - 09Dec2011
The strategic area known as the Eastern Pardus Rim is a traditional battle ground during hostilities between the Union and the Empire. With tensions having escalated into full blown war, we can expect violent conflict in the region, especially in regions bordering passes into union and empirial territory.

Leaders from both sides have urged their pilots to conserve their energy and only expend fuel when there is enough to reach the saftey of friendly planets, starbases and wormholes. Pilots not heeding these warnings are often stranded in space, unable to move and easy prey for enemy marauders as they are unable to flee and, or effectively defend themselves in such situations.

In related war news, E.R.A. pilot and Union Collector Gregory Toll escaped near death in a ill advised dogfight with known empirial count Zeus near the E.P.R. planet of Diphda. Outmatched in skills and vessel only, the brash union supporter rushed to take on the taunting empirial aggressor. As is often the case, a trap was sprung and Count Zeus ambushed Collector Toll on his way to the duel. Upon his pod's arrival on his homeworld, officials reportedly overheard Gregory Toll mention, "He ambushed me. He wouldn't even have me try to shoot at him."



Lahola (SPR) Furball - 09 Dec2011
The Southern Pardus Rim, dominated by the influence of the Empire, has seen action in the recent orbital cycles. Most notably, fighting has broken out over the much contested chokepoint in Lahola. The scene of many battles, forces are currently battling for control of this most direct route into the Empirial Pardus Core. We've received numerous reports of ship destructions and fleet movements in the area. Transit the SPR and especially Lahola with extreme caution.

Rumors of Empire Activity in UKC Nothing But Lies Says Don

Citizens have been flooding the emergency channels with reports of empiral sighting within the Union home cores. Rumors abound of a secret empire starbase hidden deep within Union territory and of sightings of old empirial foes now flying under different names and factions.

Officials with the military command structure tell us there's nothing to worry about. The Union Planetary Defense's Kingpin Myghtee BakTail refused to comment on the allegations but was recorded as having commented that "It's nothing to worry about." despite having briefly blanched at overhearing the name "Dipstick".

In an official statement released from the Don yesterday, any such rumors are not to be believed and even if true are just part of Union strategy. Such rumors are a touchy subject just weeks after the recent change in faction stance to neutral by the long time union alliance Edethex Rule of Angels.



Rush to War?

"The fog of war is deadly." said General O. Bevious of the Rashkan Defense Public Relations Beaureau earlier today. Union forces have suffered losses during the opening salvos of the war that could have been prevented and missed opportunities to return the favor because of a general lack of preparedness.

It is suspected that Son Rockhopper was defeated recently when his targeting systems neglected to activate when approached by a hostile. As a result, the enemy combatant gained the initiative and destroyed Son Rockhopper's Scorpion.

In similar cases, Starbase commanders have yet to foe the empire since the start of hostilities and have unwittingly given refuge to empire vessels that were fleeing Union forces.

Starbase commanders have been reminded to produce mass numbers of weapons, especially the latest NN550 missle, and escape pods in support of the war effort.


Notable Notables

Crusty union veteran and Godfather Acteaon recently earned a union commendation and the admiration of union citizens everywhere for having dispatched his 500th Inexperienced Pirate.

Ras Elased Starbase Retaken by Federation

Unencrypted Federal communications state that at 12.10.2011.19:54 the starbase The Santuary of ONIZUKA was captured by a Federal armada backed by Union forces. The Union apparently breached the starbase after bringing concentrated firepower to bear on an unguarded ventilation duct.

ERA's Wasted Soul participated in the operation and is quoted as saying that the Empirial defense of the starbase "..was nothing substantial."

Forces under the command of Union pilot Dracula seized the starbase and immediately beckoned friendly forces to man the defenses and mop up any remaining defenders. The starbase has since been returned to Federal forces in renewed cooperation between the Union and the Federation.

The starbase ownership of The Sanctuary of ONIZUKA changed.
Dracula has transferred ownership of his starbase to Pvt Stash. He is now commanding the The Sanctuary of ONIZUKA.

Union Bolsters EPR Defense

Rumors swirling through the cosmos imply an impending battle in the Eastern Pardus Rim. Taking the threat at face value, Union Collector Gregory Toll, rallied the starbase workers at the EPR Rest Stop in HW 3-863 and set about erecting a defensive wall and outposts to stem the advance of any potential crabby visitors.

Similar feats of heroism and sacrifice have been undertaken in past wars, to varying degrees of success. Timely actions have been known to disrupt and even turn battles in the EPR and sectors throughout the universe.

Take one particular legend as an example. The entire armada of empire ne'erdowells had made the long journey from the hinterregions of space to the doorstop of the Eastern Pardus Rim. The hostile vessels outnumbered the stars in sight and yet one shone brightest. Unbeknownst to the approaching horde, a lone brave pilot had been dispatched with no weapons but a melee spork and the Union's latest technology, a class 2.5 teleporter. With such an overwhelming advantage, and unable to be targeted while orbiting the wormhole, the pilot began consuming mass quantities of canned crab on the halfshell while emptying the enemy combatant's cargo holds of their precious battle supplies. Quickly running out of room in his vessel, the wily Union hero realized sacrifices had to be made. With lightning quick reflexes and staunch determination, he and his spork tore through every captured parcel of drugs, booze and perishables in order to take on more hand weapons and robots liberated from the enemy vessels.

Having realized their logistical supply lines had been irretrevably wrecked and their situation hopeless, the empire armada turned tail and scurried back home. Hence why traders throughout the Union emblazon their battle teleporters with "by Dar Nok, the Empire will run!"

Legend has it, the famous pilot, or his celestial apparition, stalks the EPR every time war comes to the EPR. But that's just a young lizard's tail,.. tale.

Study Shows Empire Wubs MO Walls
Thanks to enjoying the highest priority of Union funding, crack scientists in a lab on Sirius have determined that our shelled neighbors and keldon cousins have carried their affinity for terrestrial burrowing to the stars. This was further evidenced today by our witnessing the construction of a third wall of Military Outposts in 'upper' Baham. Newly enlightened citizens around the universe slapped collectively slapped their forheads.

With the war slowly starting, UPS (Union Postal Service) is opening its doors again and offering their services.

First happy client was a MO owner in PE06 at 9,6 who has requested an express shipment of explosives to his building for some redecoration. We sent a heavy convoy of some 8 Fighters to accompany the single transport vessel to ensure safe delivery of the requested goods.
The package was delivered quickly, unfortunately the MO owner seemed to have messed up handling of those explosives since only moments later we saw the MO being blown into pieces.

Fortunately for us, another MO owner asked for an offer to deliver the same package to him, but since we would have had to pick up such a package from an other location again and with 2-3 other postal services incoming, we could only leave our offer behind and are now waiting if it gets accepted. On our way out the MO owner suggested that he'll use the explosives as ERA (explosive reactive armor [sorry for the pun Laugh out Loud]) for the weakly defended MO.

No casualties resulted.

ERA Rest Area Closed for Renovations

Some of our Empire neighbors had a raucous party at Bxulu's ERA Rest Area starbase in EH 5-382. The collateral damage was severe and the starbase is currently closed for clean up and redecorating.

The party has since been moved to Mr. Xzyyz's Uchi No Neko in Nex004, where we hope they'll get a proper send off.

Nex004 First Battle Synopsis

By 2011.12.13.05:00 an empire attack on Union starbase Uchi No Neko, commanded by ERA's Mr Xyzzy, was well underway. The incoming attack had been spotted by union scouts days in advance and defending starbase squads were mustered and outfitted in anticipation of the coming battle.

The empire split its forces, likely saving Uchi No Neko from sure distruction, favoring an almost simultaneous attack on ERA Rest Stop in HW 3-863 and UNN in Nex004. Enemy squads finally gained passage through the line of military outposts after crack empire assault vessels breached them. It was only a matter of time before the numerous starbase assault craft overwhelmed the defenses at the Rest Area, which never stood a snowball's chance in hell, and destroyed that minor union refuge.

The other half of the enemy assault focused on Mr. Xyzzy's starbase. Through luck and quick response, the Union was able to better respond to the attack in Nex004. The enemy split its forces and didn't plan the attacks to occur simultaneously, giving the Union more warning of the incoming attack on UNN.

Defending Union squads defended key tactical portions of the starbase instead of attacking or blocking the incoming squads, instead prefering to concentrate their firepower inconjunction with Heavy Starbase Defense Artillery against the aggressors.

The attackers were able to penetrate the starbase habitat ring in a few places but found the command center well guarded by determined union defenders commanded by Mr. X. After days of combat, their logistical lines stretched thin and having suffered numerous losses, the empire squads straggled back home, unable to snuff out the union presence in Nex004.

War comes to the Home Cores

Days ago, Empire forces infiltrated Union space by sneaking through the Pass Uni 02 corridor and breached a Union lightly defended military outpost in the Urfaa sector of the URC. It is rumored that pirates in the area may have aided in providing the Empire Armada with intelligence and or assistance in the assault.

The goal of the assualt seemed to be to penetrate into the URC and conduct sabotage and hacking deep in the relatively unprotected home core. Mission complete, the Empire scurried back from whence they came.

Union leaders have vowed to increase the number of missions assigned to Union military units for the purpose of keeping the traitorous pirates better surpressed.

In similar news, yesterday, an Empire assault was launced in Pass Uni 07, in the Northern Union Rashkir Core. The Union suffered heavy losses as pilots, tired from constant ambushing had grown content with the mundane peace and quiet of their surroundings. The swift surprise assault caught many of the Union defenders off guard and unable to effectively respond to the brutal frontal assault.

Empire MO Demolition teams wrecked several Union Military Outposts and cornered the lethargic Union pilots in what was thought to be an impenetrable and secret nook. After mopping up any remaining and feeble resistance, the Empire carried out several missions and exited back to Ioquex in the Lane Cluster. Not every Empire vessel departed Union space and hackers friendly to the Union cause began to triangulate the hidden marauders for packs of NURC based hunters.

Similar events were reported in Pass Uni 01, near Anphiex in the Lane Cluster. Empire pilots were reportedly seen as far behind the front lines as the Rashkir home world Vega.

It is examples like this that Union pilots are urged not to get complacent when flying about the home cores. The empire will find you.

The Union Military Review Board is rumored to be looking into the causes of why so many Union pilots were caught off guard in PU07. Many suspect Empirial subterfuge and even speculate that the Empire somehow tainted or poisoned double broccoli rations were the cause of this debacle.



Double Blow Sufferred in Nhandu - PUC

At 2011.12.15.06:33 Empire Starbase Assault Squads destroyed Union starbase, the Candy Shop, commanded by former ERA member Simon Steele. Shortly thereafter, the starbase Ciambella 2.0, overseen by Union Daughter Pices, was also destroyed. Few details of this chapter of conflict in the Pardus Core are available. Obtaining reliable reports and accounts of action has been difficult due to the extremely violent nature of the fighting between warring factions there. It is clear that the battle rages on however and citizens are urged to evacuate to safer locations.


Union Forces Attack Pass Emp 11
A crack squad of Union pilots flew to the ends of the universe to take the fight to the empire. Due to the time and distance involved in this foray, it is not clear what the outcome of this battle was. However, rumors claim that new technology was encountered in defense of the Empire pass, thus making success much less likely. Additionally, one of the pilots questioned at his homeworld after an unfortunate pod ride mentioned something about friendly fire before the Union Censors gave him a quick sedative and rushed him deeper into the confines of the pod recovery center.

Emps from Algol Repelled

2011.12.19.06:03 Union Pilot Ferrus reported Empire activity outside of Pass Uni 09. An Empire Strike force was fast closing in on defenses protecting the nooked starbase there. The defenses were eventually overcome by sheer numbers of attackers and Union leaders feared the starbase within would be at risk. Union reinforcements arrived shortly thereafter and the enemy forces withdrew toward Nex006.
