Which will be easier because... wait for it... all of the information about 0410 has to be released! Honestly, sometimes I love the irony of humanity.

And for the record, no, I'm not saying that transparency is a bad thing. I very much agree with that measure and think you guys were right to pass it. At the same time, I'm kind of throwing up my hands in a 'yep, we're still boned' kind of way. Sometimes, it seems like we can't win for losing.

You just gotta laugh, you know?


True, and they'd be mad to work on modifying the thing without having the bucket of water right there. Of course, the whole purpose of the work would be to render the bucket of water ineffective....

Or watch the world burn and close the door behind them once and for all.

Much better option than "Look, i have a toy that hurts, i also have a kiss that heals, but now everyone knows how the toy hurts and how to kiss it better so i will make a slightly different toy and hope they don´t discover my new slightly different kiss".

I ... don't think we're saying very different things, actually, although the number of entities who'd be looking to break the lock is probably smaller than the number that would be looking to make it fit their own key.

State peacekeepers confirm Myrskaa cleanup status as Megacorporations bid for reconstruction contract , with the value of salvage rights alone estimated close to a trillion interstellar kredits.

Pilots, an ARCHIVES release on Akira Kasaras with the full audio of the sigint captures that we recovered. A Discourse will follow in the coming days.

Thanks to Arataka for making the documents available to a broader audience! One question though: Is there a clearer evidence, maybe within other documents, that the person named "Odaka" is indeed "Odaka Pakera", i.e. a member of the Pakera family?

There were some documents at the Inquest indicating that Odaka Pakera was the name of the pilot recovered at Myrskaa, but nothing beyond that.

In addition to the Akira Kasaras ARCHIVES file, the index posts have been updated with the following:


Given that the news of late has been less time sensitive, but more of an administrative manner, I do hope pilots don't mind that I did a batch update.

Index post updated with both:

The Discourse - Kyonoke Inquest YC119 LIVE Part 1
The Discourse - Intelligence Agency Implicated in Kyonoke Crisis

Apologies for the oversight in failing to post the Discourse, LIVE! episode earlier! Unfortunately, with so much happened aboard H4-RP4, our focus naturally began to narrow.

There's a final count on Myrskaa, and confirmation that, indeed, the Pakera link is a Dragonaur one, as we suspected.

I'm not sure I agree with the Scope assessment that the RP4 outbreak should be attributed to Kasaras, at least not completely. What captures we have don't seem to indicate that she intended to carry out the attacks so much as stop them, and to deliver a sample to 'Vulture' or other entities.

We'll see what follows. I do hope that the Society and DED are heavily involved in the retrieval of assets from RP4.

Seems unreal that the space elevator on Muttokon is running again. Re-approaching normalcy seemed somewhat... absurd, just a few weeks ago. With this, perhaps spirits will be buoyed for the citizens around Tartatven. Survivors, there and in the other stricken zones, will need continued support in the coming months.

It seems I have plans, then, for Sunday... somewhere above Muttokon's south polar region.

While this crisis had the potential to be cluster-changing, when you get down to it, a few tens of millions in New Eden is a rounding error.

Between the initial rapid detection of the Kyonoke outbreaks and quarantine, and the success of the Inquest, we were likely spared far more painful developments.

Index posts updated both with Sukuuvesta's successful bid, and the FIO equipment seizure from RP4.

I do hope the DED is engaged actively in the analysis of equipment seized from RP4 as was implied in earlier news releases, as the implication of an intelligence agency's involvement in the RP4 outbreak warrants extra care to ensure no appearance of wrongdoing.

What's more, I'm quite curious about the arrests made so far; who they are, and what their ties are to the Pakeras, Kasarases, and what's been uncovered regarding the saboteurs aboard the H4-RP4 facility.

We'll see how this develops.

Continued arrests among Astral Mining staff have been noted in Scope News tickers. I'll not bother including this in the index given that it's just ticker crawl, but it is fascinating.

Astral Mining staff? Arrested? By FIO? Is this implying that the Astral Mining staff was complicit in the Dragonaur plot? Or are they perhaps complicit in whatever intelligence agency was using Akira Kasaras as a mule for a Kyonoke sample? Or perhaps they simply know about that element of it, and are being detained for interrogation?

Or they got arrested for knowing too much. Wouldn't be the first time.

Still no news, though we have news of news. There's evidently been a major break, but of course FIO has not yet released any details.

This seems an opportune time to remind pilots of the Akira Kasaras logs recovered during the Inquest.

We'll see what FIO and Astral Mining say.

Undoubtedly the Federal Intelligence Office has made its own inquiries and came to its own conclusions. Conclusions I would certainly trust over other overly biased assessments.

As with any suspicious aggression, potentially by a hostile power, they are being understandably deliberate and not provocative in their speculations of potential blame.... unlike some.

I look forward to their report.

Indeed. Unlike some.

While clearly the State has some cleaning house to do, I do find it exceedingly interesting that Poteque's treatment naming scheme coincides with the date of Ishukone's announcement of a bid to take Arcurio, and that the weaponization study section retrieved during the inquest specifically studies targeting AKTA. Poteque, what's more, is known to be in the employ of the Federal government on certain top secret projects, but we have no such indication for association with the Legion or the State.

Certainly, there are three parties who would be interested in studying Arcurio; the Legion, the State, or the Federation. It could yet turn out that, beyond the Dragonaur cell that should have been burned out long ago, the State's involvement is more pronounced.

But how quick you are to declare the Federation blameless when there are, shall we say, interesting coincidences that make such a declaration questionable.

We'll see what FIO finds. And then we'll see what happens when FIO's findings are audited. Whatever happens, I look forward to the findings, and to justice for the dead of Myrskaa.

If that actually happens, I'll be shocked. If it's done by anyone who can be credibly held as unbiased, doubly so.

You do seem fixated with 'blame'. I don't believe I did declare the Federation 'blameless', context being everything. But keep minimizing and obfuscating the inattentive will always believe a lie.
