Three of the five individuals responsible for the recent theft of meta-alloys from Darnielle's Progress have been positively identified, following analysis of starport security footage. Remarkably, one of the perpetrators has been acknowledged as Commander Salomé, also known as Kahina Tijani Loren.
Loren was sentenced to life imprisonment last year for the attempted murder of Admiral Denton Patreus, but when her convoy was destroyed en route to Koontz Asylum it was assumed she had been killed.
Responding to the news, Imperial authorities promptly placed a galaxy-wide bounty on Salomé to the tune of 500,000 credits.
Meanwhile, Princess Aisling Duval released a brief statement:
"Commander Salomé is a disgraced senator and a convicted murderer. She incites violence wherever she goes, and in the interest of public safety she must be stopped. I urge all those loyal to the Empire to deliver justice to this criminal."
Salomé's accomplices have been identified as former MetaDrive employee Raan Corsen – previously believed deceased – and former Junior Alliance operative Tsu Annabelle Singh. The Empire has placed sizable bounties on both individuals.
Imperial military sources issued the following advice to those interested in pursuing these bounties:
"These individuals should be considered armed and dangerous. Make no attempt to communicate with them. Shoot on sight. Visual evidence of a target's death will guarantee the relevant bounty."
Salomé's current location is unknown, but she is believed to have fled the core systems.
This report presents the latest data on conflict among the galaxy's minor factions.
Here are the latest factions to experience a civil war:
New 31 Aquilae Green Party
Potriti Gold Mafia
Fusang Fortune Commodities
Eravate Life Services
AG+21 1754 Citizen Party
Eranin Peoples Party
Purungurawn Purple Society
United Hatmehit Revolutionary Party
Civil wars occur when minor factions compete for control of major assets such as starports. When a faction is involved in a civil war, the standard of living, development level and security level in the system it controls are temporarily reduced. Combat activities can bring a civil war to an end.
Here are the latest factions to experience war:
Colanja Gold Power Services
Ross 754 Labour
G 41-14 Purple Travel Solutions
Wolf 359 Blue Travel Commodities
Limapa Blue State Commodities
Lords of Ngaliba
HIP 8593 Empire League
Kini Drug Empire
Wars occur when a minor faction invades a star system controlled by another minor faction. For the duration of the war, the standard of living, wealth level and security level in the disputed system are reduced. Combat activity between the two warring factions determines the outcome of the conflict. If neither faction succeeds in dominating the other, the war ends in a ceasefire.
Authorities in the Lidpar system have reported a sharp increase in the number of criminals operating in the area. Reports indicate that the agitators are attacking pilots travelling in the system, disrupting trade and generally spreading discord.
To counter this threat, the Union of Lidpar Green Party has placed a kill order on all wanted ships operating in the Lid system, and has promised to reward pilots who deliver bounty vouchers to Carlisle Station. In addition, the Union of Lidpar Green Party has promised to reward pilots who deliver battle weapons, reactive armour, and advanced medicines to Carlisle Station in the Lidpar system, to support local security forces.
The campaign begins on 23rd of March 3303 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.
A spokesperson for the Alectrona Imperial Society has announced that its appeal for construction materials has reached a successful conclusion.
Hundreds of independent pilots supported the operation, and the Alectrona Imperial Society will be able to begin construction of an outpost in the Andhrimi system at some point in the future.
A spokesperson for the Alectrona Imperial Society thanked those who supported the operation. Pilots who contributed to the initiative can now collect their rewards from Yurchikhin Station in the Andhrimi system.
This report presents the latest data on democratic activity among the galaxy's minor factions.

Delphin Blue Federal PLC
Union of Wolf 359 Labour

The long, dark winter has officially arrived with the re-introduction of Club-Mate's Winter Edition blend. This special flavor is only made in Germany once a year and it's generally only sold during the winter months. Our shipment just arrived and we think it got here just in time.
Club-Mate Winter Edition is spiced with cinnamon, star anise, and cardamom. As the Germans describe it, "it tastes like warming up your hands in front of a fireplace after a merry snowball fight. Its unique ingredients create a taste that smoothly combines with the mate. Thus new sensory interpretations become possible."
We don't have a lot of the stuff so we're only making it available in 12-packs. You can order yours here.
On the 12th of January 33 years ago, we released the very first issue of 2600. On that same date in 2017, we are officially releasing the brand new Winter Issue. (Incidentally, you could find all sorts of fun facts like this if you had your own 2017 Hacker Calendar.) It's never been easier to get the latest issue. Subscribing means you barely have to move. If you feel like going outside, you can find the current issue at all sorts of bookstores and newsstands. For those who prefer to go digital, we have Kindle subscriptions available in the United States and United Kingdom, and other digital subscriptions in those and other countries through Google Play and the Nook. And, of course, you can also get available back issues digitally or in print. A lot has happened since 1984. We suspect a great deal more is looming on the horizon. We hope you join us for the journey.
To help make the holidays more enjoyable, we have put all of the talks from The Eleventh HOPE on our YouTube channel in full HD quality. Just click here to start viewing. (If you click "Play All" you will see all talks in sequential order in each track.) If you want your very own copies to store locally, we also have flash drives, MP4s, and DVDs available at our store. You now have many ways in which to share HOPE in this festive season.
