Thargoid Attacks on Megaships Rising.

  Thargoids appear to be attacking industrial megaships more and more in present weeks. CMDR Idonolis pointed out that Thargoids had attacked a Demeter class agricultural vessel yesterday in the system HIP 44811, being one of the furthest vessels from the center of thargoid activity to be attacked. We have also had reports of other Dmeter class vessels attacked, with an intercepted combat log reading: “I don’t care if we have no weapons, get me anything I can throw at this thing! Get some power to engines! If we can’t shoot it, maybe we can ram it!” This says to … Continue reading Thargoid Attacks on Megaships Rising.

Cubeo Blockaded By Federal United Command.

  In a stunning show of defiance against Imperial Princess Aisling Duval, representatives from the Federation sub-faction known as The Federal United Command, flying the banner for Zachary Hudson, formed a blockade at stations across the Cubeo system yesterday. It is not known exactly why the blockade came into force, but many speculate whether it is tied to Duval’s recent engagement to Jordan Rochester – solidifying feelings that there might be quiet insurrections throughout both The Empire and Federation against the arrangement. There was widespread fighting as the plucky group, consisting of entirely Viper-class craft, blocked the station’s entry slot … Continue reading Cubeo Blockaded By Federal United Command.

Simbad Regime In Colonia Slave Links?

We all know that Colonia is a hotbed of dubious activities. It seems that every organisation uses this home away from home to conduct activities that might be viewed with suspicion nearer the bubble. We’ve seen this with bandit kings packing up and making the move, all the way up to Aegis and the Galactic Superpowers building secret facilities nestled in the rings of gas-giants. Well The Fuel Scoop has recently acquired some insider information from those close to the Simbad regime, that might suggest that they have, for a long time, been setting up an extensive logistics network along … Continue reading Simbad Regime In Colonia Slave Links?

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?

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?

We knew about his mission to … Continue reading The Galactic Hypergiant Survey – An Epic Story Of Galactic Exploration.
