Through peer research and discussion, the Astromancer Affair is now being called further into question in the context of unfolding events in Semiki.
The virus present in the system is based on Rogue Drone principles, but has an additional all-but-confirmed relation to the Triglavian Collective, given the significant events surrounding myriad Trinary Datastreams which are apparently relevant to ongoing efforts.
It has been known that the Astromancer was found to be in posession of a Trinary datastream relic on the day of his attack on the CONCORD timebase research convoy, which was itself prying into the secrets of the Abyss; following his attack, a Tyrannos vessel presented itself on the scene, but took no action against the convoy - simply electing to ominously observe as the experiment was successfully carried out.
The Astromancer took actions to prevent successful research into accessing the Abyss - the Drifters, however, did not discourage its completion.
The Astromancer’s body was forcibly claimed by the DED, and attempts were also made to collect his datastream. Myriad circles have put forward the hypothesis of Triglavian intervention in this event, citing the cryptic warnings of Triglavian suborning of those who “delve too deep” into the abyss and the memetic nature of Trinary relics, suggested by CONCORD far prior to any public insights into the Triglavian collective becoming public - “possible vectors of colonizing neuromemetic worms or other coercive infowar technologies”.
It has now been relevantly re-noted that the Astromancer and his accomplices were members of Algintal Core, “a military unit seconded to corporate interests studying the behavior of rogue drones in the Algintal constellation”.
The intrusion by Vailakkel at the inception of the Semiki event, given the rogue drone relation and trinary relevance of the situation, alongside the rogue drone relations of the Astromancer and his accociates, may then be compared; was Vailakkel himself in the same position as the Astromancer, possibly influenced or suborned by the Triglavian Collective?
Pertaining to the above connections, efforts are now underway to reach out to the Algintal Core and CeoDron corporations, with the goal of uncovering any possible relevant information in the field or Rogue Drone research.
