Greetings members of the Intergalactic Summit. I am Chet-Shi, a newcomer to the life of a Capsuleer, and an Intaki of the Gallente Federation. I have only been active in the Summit for less then a week, but in that time i’v come to understand much more about the universe and the people of New Eden. I’v spoken to many people at length on many subjects, new for me, ancient to many of you, and familiarized myself with as much of recent politics as I could.
One of those things is the Triglavian War and it’s aftermath in New Eden. After a discussion with a few different Caldari about the war I spent the better part of the last several hours absorbing as much information on the subject as I possibly could. Given where i’m from and the fact that I am a militia member who is, candidly, not on good terms with the state and likely never will be, it might seem like an odd thing to fixate on. But I am also an Intaki, first and foremost my people have pursued a path that fixates on reducing the collective suffering of people as much as possible. Suffering that exists whether one is Caldari, Gallente, Amarrian, or Minmatar.
Of the four empires, no one has suffered more then the Caldari State. The damage to it’s infrastructure both in terms of people and material seems incalculable, and they shouldered the brunt of the Triglavian invasion. Further, more then anyone else their people were the most mistreated by the Collective. Triglavians, from what observations i’v gathered, exhibited a total war stance when in combat against serious opposition where otherwise they might leave populations somewhat alone. Due to the militaristic nature of the Caldari and their resistance the Triglavians inflicted untold suffering on their worlds, either as an automatic response to outside threats or to make an example.
Of the twenty seven systems who were conquered and their suns harvested, sixteen of them were Caldari. Of the twenty eight made into ‘hunting grounds’ seventeen were Caldari, making their losses magnitudes larger then anyone else and threatening nearby systems as well. Whatever your opinion on the Caldari might be, it’s clear that their people need help. Their losses are to such an extent that I would go so far as to say we have a moral imperative to assist them regardless of previous interactions with them. Too much innocent life lost, too many people who have suffered, and too many people who are still suffering.
Like I said, I am very much a new pilot. Barely even a rookie out in the world of New Eden, but I still have a voice. I want this as a place to help coordinate aid to the Caldari state, to share information about the Triglavian threat, and to network to others on ways we might assist in relief efforts from here on out. I am willing to pour my resources in ships and what meager amounts of isk I have to help, even though I cannot even enter Caldari space.
A lot of this begins at where to start however: What assistance is needed? where is it needed most? what should be prioritized? for those who cannot cross into state boundries is there a way to assist by sending ships and isk into Caldari territory? I am willing to work with Capsuleers of all backgrounds, from all walks of life on this project and plan to continue with it for the foreseeable future.
