Oh, I like you.
If it’s more than 12 glowy doodads in one place, then Oveg Drust has a… problem looming in Yulai.
Nice plot twist.
Now what might A, B, and AB refer to in the context of CRG? The fairest assumption in my mind would place Drifters as A, Triglavians as B, and a simultaneous appearance of the lot as AB.
Stockpiling Triglavian datastreams which have only been observed to be records at this point being apparently “dangerous” - that certainly implies that Concord is veiling some potentially important secrets concerning the nature of these very easily collectible gleanings.
While I-RED and ARC have had some differences recently, we would like to hope that we still align to the idea of keeping the cluster, and more specifically the State, safe from incursion of outside entities.
That said, we highly advise complying with CONCORD’s order.
We at I-RED will be turning over the little amount we have collected.
[I-RED] Public Release: Semiki Internal Watch Deployment
[GMVA] Petition to Head of the Senate, Federated Union of Gallente Prime, RE: SEMIKI
I’ve been using them as furniture I had so many. Not done me any harm.
Due to past differences between myself and CONCORD, In particular the DED I feel obligated to tell Oveg to shove it up his behind and piss off.
this is the personal view of Lord Raholan and does not represent the opinion of SFRIM, Khimi Harar or associates
I feel that the Astromancer event shouldn’t be forgotten with all of this - under what was likely disguised as timebase research, CONCORD succeeded in some doings that may have led to their capture of the Triglavian cruiser Drust himself took in.
The most important part there is the Astromancer himself, who was in possession of a trinary datastream relic - given the warnings so far concerning “suborning” (or Sobornost, considering the Triglavians?) might he have been acting on the behalf of those who wouldn’t want their ship to be captured?
Additionally, the Drifter vessel that appeared that day did nothing but observe - perhaps that observer didn’t disagree with what was done that day.
Well, in a FORTUITOUS turn of events, that particular relic is indeed available for study.
Our goal is to help find a solution to this crisis, not to create another and bigger one.
We should not put the system of Semiki or the cluster at large at risk. I have offered my help in moving them to the provided location.
Having said that, I do not think we should abondon the crisis in Semiki and I have begun collecting requested materials again for finding the solution in Semiki.
Camptain Drust, as a CONCORD loyalist I do would like to request additional information with regard to what amount of these artefacts is considered to be safe. That way we can transport the now impounded stockpile safely to Mastakomon without causing undue risk in transit and after handing it over.
It will also allow us to provide the safe amount of materials to help find a solution to the Semiki crisis.
The thing is, that now that @Oveg_Drust has revealed that collecting many of these things in one place is Dangerous™, then, I predict that several malcontent capsuleers, (i.e. Vlad Cetes), will collect as many of them in one place as they can, in morbid curiosity to see what happens next.
Some would say the sciences are a morbid curiosity of the universe.
Perhaps trying to discuss it with people before making demands of people that don’t know you. Just because you have a flashy badge to shine doesn’t make it so that people will automatically comply with you. Some of us still remember how corrupt CONCORD is.
As much as we capsuleers may feel we’re above the law in all regards, it’s an incorrect assumption. We are beholden to CONCORD.
Acting against their wishes is a criminal act as it’s been proven in the past, no matter how much we view it as an overreach of power. That’s just how it is and loyalists should strive to remain within the regulation imposed on us, as they’re in place for good reasons.
Given the rising inception of Triglavian data, I figure this may be a good time to add our script sheet to this post as a reference, should anything come of it:
So … Cpt. Drust? Those were a lot of code names.
I’m assuming that it’s not a problem for us to know those code names, because you’ve now published them. I guess it’s probably a problem to detail what they involve or exactly how they’re triggered.
Respectfully, would it be possible for ARC to comply with your order by dividing the cache into a suitable number of separate locations, perhaps to be communicated privately?
Also, is there a number you would be comfortable with declaring for a size you’d consider unacceptably large?
Although … “emergent threat” cases involving two different potential types of entities … hm. You’re afraid the Drifters (or Triglavians? probably not-- they’ve got all the trinary data they could want) are going to launch a raid to recover them, aren’t you?
Entity categorization is very similar-- CRG-- “Case Red Gamma”-- A and B … could be Artemis and Apollo … “AB,” though? Hikanta? Arithmos?
… though “containment challenges” … well … it’s hard to “contain” a Drifter “death ball” if it’s not already badly weakened …
What if the problem’s from the stockpile itself, though? Hm.
Maybe you can’t give a specific number because the true critical mass isn’t known, or else because it’s whatever’s “big enough to get attention”?
I offer to pay market price for said commodities if they will keep them out of the hands of this blowhard.
You know you’re just making me consider building up a larger stockpile in the 1dq keepstar to see just what you jokers will do to try to enforce that ridiculous rule, right?
Uh. Arrendis? We don’t actually know how ridiculous it is.
“Surrender it all!” isn’t rare as a CONCORD demand, but it feels a little panicky here. I’m wondering whether Cpt. Drust was supposed to explain even as much as he did.
("… even a class AB …" it sounds smaller. Oh! He could be talking about a Drifter cruiser incursion?)
(Or maybe it’s Class A - full Drifter Incursion; Class B - Drifter “death ball” raiding fleet; Class AB … um. Only he talks about them as entities, not fleets. Hm.)
Anyway, it might or might not be ridiculous. We know CONCORD doesn’t tell us everything, but that doesn’t mean they’re foolish to hide some or even a lot of things. It might even be they’ve been foolish to say as much as they have.
