Fellow citizens of New Eden
I have been monitoring the Triglavian Invasion systems with Haria Haritamado and Lilly Terranova as well as a number of volunteer pilots. In the course of which I began to notice a similar pattern cropping up in the invaded systems, to the extent that it is worthy of commenting to a wider audience.
The work of our Consortium on the well established Triglavian Primer series showed that the view bright yellow and blue stars as ideal candidates for their purposes, and this has been born out by the current state of invasions. Two of each type have been progressed to Final Liminality by the Triglav and their associates. Fortunately at least nineteen systems have established Fortress structures and should be relatively safe for the time being. There have, however, been some interesting results. A number of systems have simply dropped out of the invasion altogether, others have got to the point where it appears a victory was achieved by one side or another although neither Final Liminality nor the Fortress was established. Still a very traumatic time for the residents of these systems but nowhere near as bad as conditions in the Final Liminality systems may become. I believe various groups may well be moving towards humanitarian aid efforts where it is humanly possible, although no communication has yet been received from the Triglav themselves. To date they do not appear to even communicate their intentions to their allies.
There does appear to be a particular pattern in those systems that have been invaded so far: the Solar type, and its characteristics is, as shown in the Triglavian Primer, to be of definite importance. This can be linked to the system as a whole and the number, and type of asteroid belts is of significant interest; for reasons that will become clear. Other factors include the presence of large corporate and governmental institutions in these systems. Quite obviously the major mining operations by state and other interests are vitally important to the interests of the Empires and likewise any military bases operated by the states and also by CONCORD,DED, SOE and other institutions will also merit a robust defence in addition to that afforded by EDENCOM and those resolute capsuleers working alongside it. The Edencom Defense Initiative is doing very well indeed but needs support if anyone is able.
Some of the systems may be strategic decisions taken by the Triglav, we see systems that could isolate areas of high security space as well as those that lie in quiet backwaters, but analysis of the data is still ongoing and all contributions are welcome. In the most seriously affected systems Triglavian ground forces are making determined efforts to capture mining and industrial facilities, which really does point to them perhaps lacking resources in the Abyss and thus the primary reason for their assault upon our cluster. Having verified that there was only a minor Jovian presence which did not constitute a great threat, I am certain a spur to their actions.
Much was made of the solar type and various theories pointed in the direction of Isogen-5 a very rare allotrope of Isogen formed under intense heat and pressure, and linked to the Seyllin Incident. Although this has not made much sense to myself. Triglavian technology is reliant, from what we have seen and the Triglavian ships we are able to build, on a foundation of Zero Point Condensate and Isogen-10, another allotropic form of the mineral.
The Porevitium Transmuter uses Zero Point Mass Entanglers, similar to the ones we ourselves use for increasing a ships mass in order to exceed the mass limit of a wormhole. There are researchers currently conducting intensive observations to determine how the process works, but I feel I can speculate on what we will find. The Transmuter is, in some unknown fashion, extracting Zero Point Energy, this may well be the blue beam coming out of a sun undergoing the transmutation. It therefore would be logical to assume that they are able to condense this into Condensate, as required by their construction teams. The same processes acting on the sun can be applied to isogen bearing asteroids in the system in order to produce the necessary Isogen-10 for their purposes. These asteroids in particular only appear in systems with a security rating of 0.7 and below, in varying quantities, but this makes the number of belts an important factor.
Sakenta was an odd situation and it would appear that in cases where the sun and system offer perfect conditions for the harvesting of Zero Point Energy the isogen is a secondary factor and may be overridden by concerted capsuleer efforts on their behalf. Research is ongoing and a more comprehensive report will follow but these initial observations were deemed important enough to share. Any assistance is always welcomed by ARC.
