This is such a wonderful event and I am proud to a part of the help this year.

I have yet to pick out a dress for the celebrations, and instead of trying to find or design my own I would like to offer a SKIN I have acquired as payment.

Vexor Scope Syndication YC122

I would like the design to embody the values of the Federation while also being elegant enough to be the spotlight of a party.

Sincères Amitiés,

Clementine

I eagerly await the upcoming Federation Day celebrations.

I have pulled some connections with the government of my member state, and humbly announce a donation of 1 billion ISK from the United Republics of Aristidia of the system of Amygnon in Verge Vendor. The specifics related to the donation will be forwarded to Mr. Colcer within the coming days.

Long live the Federation!

Monsieur Colcer,

While our family is remiss that we’ve been unable to participate in this annual celebration in the past, we are delighted to be able to do so now. We Corinths are survivors of a Sansha attack many years ago and it was due to the courage of Gallente patrols driving off the attackers that allowed us to be rescued by a civilian freighter in the aftermath.

To help commemorate this event, The Corinth Clan corporation pledges 5 billion isk to be utilized as prizes for the ‘Pimp Your Ride’ contest, with half going to the most elegant ship and skin, and half going to the most outlandish ship and skin.

Additionally, our female family members (excluding myself), desire to enter the pageant and hope it’s not too late to submit their entries.

Vive la Gallente!!!

Is it too late to nominate potential Miss Federation candidates? I can’t think of anyone who deserves the honor more than Diana Kim.

You are most kind monsieur. The following gals from the Corinth fam are throwing their names into the hat:

Jade Corinth
Ahlea Corinth
Demeter Corinth

Monsieur @Tiber_Brucato as master of ceremonies and host of the event, I do reserve the right of admittance to capsuleers who wish to participate. In this case, I must decline the participation of pilot @Diana_Kim on the basis of her being unable to physically being present at Luminaire without inciting hostilities from FDU combat pilots or the Federation Navy Patrols given her current standings with my nation.

Perhaps if she worked for less unsavory organizations such as the State Protectorate, and addressed her past deeds against the Federation, my opinion would change.

Regardless, thank you for showing interest in our celebrations and festivities for this important date.

Since you have brought my name and our organizations into the discussion…

First of all, State Protectorate is not “unsavory”, it’s an organization that is created to Protect State souvereign space and interests from foreign invaders and aggressors, like Gallente Federation and its allied Minmatar Republic. Our methods could be questionable, but they are applicable only to those who commit worse.

Second, Mr. Brucato has displayed himself already as a dishonorable slanderer, in the NeoCom counterpart of these forums (called the same - Intergalactic Summit) he has publically accused me in lying, which he neither could prove, nor had honor to fight me in the duel. In fact, he did agreed to a duel and we have even agreed on weapons - but after that he just began in cowardly and dishonorable manner trying to change already agreed upon rules, which I, obvoisly, didn’t allow him to do, and thus he didn’t fight in the duel with the terms he himself has proposed and that were agreed upon.

From that time I consider him wanted as a suspect in public slander and will treat him accordingly.

As for addressing my deeds against the Federation, I can answer this:

As long as the Federation keeps invading souvereign Caldari State space, as long as the Federation will be keeping committing warcrimes, will be torturing our prisoners of war, while there is Federal presence in regions of Lonetrek, Black Rise, the Forge, and as long as gallente are trying to keep under control the system with our Homeworld, I’ll stick to simple doctrine:

ALL INVADERS SHALL DIE.

Stop your aggression, vacate State territories and Homeworld system, cease torture of POWs, transfer those of Federal management who are responsible for this war and operation highlander (including the whole top of Federal government) to Caldari tribunal, only after that I will consider addressing my deeds in regard of the Federation.

And I do not accept any compromises.

– D. Kim, Strike Cmdr.

It is typical of a Caldari sympathizer that such unsubstantiated fear mongering comprises the bulk of a response to legitimate concerns. The safety of Gallente Citizens is at stake, and to allow you, with a proven history of murdering innocent Gallente capsuleers and civilian spacecraft, to attend these festivities is introducing risk to life and liberty of citizens who will be present.

I must side with Monsieur Colcer in this matter. Your wanton aggression toward the Gallente Federation is unacceptable, and attempts by you to enter Luminaire during this celebration will be met with force.

Thank you for the invitation.
If the time will allow, I’ll see if I can visit the Homeworld system to try to clean it from Federal occupants as much as I can in a given period.

This is a most exciting and humble event in which I hope to fully participate.

The Center for Techo-Archaeology and Artificial Intelligence would like to offer each Notable Capsuleer nominated, a full flight of ‘Integrated’ Gallente drones, in the size of their choice. Delivery options are available anywhere in New Eden, but preferably at the close of ceremony in the hosting system.

Please excuse any errant baby drones that escape the flagship in parade
