Discovery in the Formidine Rift

For those who missed the information this week; The very long (3 years) research finally led to a great discovery into the Formidine Rift. A gigantic ship has been discovered and the latter contains many secrets.

Indeed, the The Tionisla riddle has been published on the 16th of April. The hints led us to various researches; In the end, we found these names:

Styx Rhea Yildun Eurydice Rhamnousia Bellerophon Epione Eurycleia Amphithea Cronus Daedalion Chione Iapetus Anticlea Aeolus Erebus Jupiter Xanthus Furies Cassiopeia 0

Taking each starting letters, we then get : SRYERBEEACDCIAAEJXFC0 // “REBECCA” is cancelled out, leaving us with “SYREADIAEJXFC0“, which is : Syreadiae JX-F c0. Check out the details in the following article

Cycle 98. We are in the cycle 99.



◘ 20 April – Recent reports indicate that the Colonia Co-operative resource drive has received the wholehearted support of the galactic community. Thousands of tonnes of resources have been delivered to Jaques Station over the past week, which will be used to develop infrastructure throughout Colonia and the surrounding systems.

◘ 20 April – A spokesperson for the Utopia Commune has announced that its campaign for materials has reached a successful conclusion. Hundreds of pilots contributed to the initiative by delivering various commodities to Cenker City, which will be used in a forthcoming research and development programme. As the campaign drew to a close, Simguru Pranav Antal, leader of Utopia, issued a brief statement.

“Those who contributed to this initiative have my gratitude. Thanks to you, this programme is off to a promising start.”

◘ 20 April – For several months, the Maia system has been a focal point in the ongoing hostility between the Empire and the Federation.

Now, the Empire and the Federation have announced plans to expand their presence in Maia by constructing new outposts. But with a shortage of reliable supply lines into the system, the superpowers are relying on the galactic community for help in compiling the necessary materials. Both are keenly aware that the finite nature of resources and support means only one will be able to proceed with its plans.

Both the Empire and the Federation have promised to reward pilots who contribute construction materials to their respective campaigns. The Federal campaign is being coordinated by the Pleiades Resource Enterprise, while the Merope Expeditionary Fleet has been authorised to oversee the Imperial initiative.

◘ 21 April – Last year, the Alliance established a foothold in the California Nebula with the construction of an outpost in the California Sector BA-A E6 system.The superpower’s critics suggested it was trying to control the system’s barnacles, but the Alliance insisted the outpost was intended solely to support scientific research.Now, fresh reports indicate that the Alliance is about to expand its presence in the region by establishing both a scientific outpost and an extraction facility in California Sector JH-V c2-12.

Kelvin Masters, a freelance journalist who regularly contributes to the Rewired news feed, commented on the development:

“Of course the Alliance wants the barnacles! They’d never admit it, of course. But that’s not the point. The point is what the Empire and Federation are going to do about it. At the moment they’re preoccupied with Maia and Merope, but sooner or later they’re going to turn their attention to the California Nebula. And when that happens, the situation is going to escalate, I guarantee it.”
