The Duval-Rochester Engagement: Trouble In Paradise?

This week the Duval Household released the date and details of the upcoming wedding between Princess Aisling Duval and Jordan Rochester. This news was met with broad approval by the galactic community who view the pairing with the romantic bent it rightly deserves.   However, the news was not without its detractors. Some imperial families oppose the marriage, seeing it as a power play with Rochester and Duval both trying to consolidate power. Zemina Torval even went so far to say that it was nothing but a “PR exercise”, stating that both parties are using the marriage purely for their … Continue reading The Duval-Rochester Engagement: Trouble In Paradise?

Thargoid Base At Betelgeuse?

We hear a lot of things waiting around in the black. Sunning ourselves on the shores of a red-giant, waiting for the fuel scoop to do it’s duty and skimming through the latest comm-link messages, we normally come across the inane ramblings of space-madness addled pilots grabbing at any chance to see ghosts in the void. But every now and again we come across something that has a chance. CMDR Bakertia1 smells something fishy in the Betelgeuse system. Space-molluscs could be amassing on it’s borders, waiting patiently under the noses of the bubble, taking advantage of the high-value worlds of … Continue reading Thargoid Base At Betelgeuse?

Long Range Passengers: What Do They Know?

Believe it or not, dear reader, The Fuel Scoop does not bring in the kinds of fame and riches it deserves. I know, it’s hard to believe, but every now and again the staff here at the intragalactic offices need to take missions from time to time. The staff here were all sitting down to a gourmet meal, (StarDrive Express Synth-Fried Chicken) when our Client Relations Officer Loomiiigo remarked on the startling number of passenger contracts out to the far fringes of the galaxy and that got us thinking about where exactly these people wanted to go. The contracts sometimes … Continue reading Long Range Passengers: What Do They Know?

The Fuel Scoop Needs You!

Hello there dear reader. Chief Editor Focko Hoft here and today I want to talk about this little project of mine. A few months ago I made a silly in-universe news site. It got off to a really good start and I’m so thankful that many people seem to be interested in this type of content. Now I feel like I’m ready to fully commit to this, going forward. That brings me to the subject of today’s lecture! I would love to have as many people involved as possible, this way I can make the site better and work towards … Continue reading The Fuel Scoop Needs You!

Has The Quest To Find Raxxla Petered Out?

Go into any hive of scum and villainy in the galaxy and you’ll always find them. Small groups of crusty old spacers, normally chewing or smoking some illicit substance, ink stains all over their fingers and never without some tattered notebook or scraps of paper, hastily scrawled with star-charts or riddles, long pored over and annotated with myriad spiderlike notes. These are the Raxxla hunters. They have been scouring the galaxy since anyone can remember for the myth that is Raxxla – supposedly a gateway to whatever your heart desires: treasure, knowledge, maybe even another galaxy. We here at The … Continue reading Has The Quest To Find Raxxla Petered Out?

The Week Moves On 2-8/7/3304

What an important week for The Fuel Scoop to come out of hibernation, we’ve seen the possible culmination of two massive events in the rising tensions of the bubble: The insurrectionist League Of Reparation is dashed to the four winds, while their shadowy figurehead “Nexus” eludes capture. No doubt to reappear when they are of use to the cabals as the Thargoids inch closer. We can only hope that the diligence of The Pilot’s Federation uncovers whatever may be lurking under the surface. The Thargoid Cult Of The Far God is under investigation, with officials now floating the prospect of … Continue reading The Week Moves On 2-8/7/3304

League Of Reparations: False Flag Operation?

  The ever vigilant eyes and ears here at The Fuel Scoop have been reading the latest outpourings from Galnet News, (or as we call it, the propaganda arm of the galactic superpowers) with rising concern at the corruption and manipulation being served to the galactic community on a daily basis.   It concerns the latest round of assassinations by and subsequent backlash against a group calling themselves “The League Of Reparations” – supposedly a group of paramilitaries hell-bent on assassinating the descendents of INRA officials and thus avenging the sad legacy of CMDR John Jameson, who was mercilessly used … Continue reading League Of Reparations: False Flag Operation?
