Archavoinet Archive: United Neopian Federation Commandeers Zorya’s Vedmak
In the late hours of 5:00 NEST, United Neopian Federation coordinator and Purosupekuta CEO Sakabkei Kiijata called for an emergency fleet formation, citing the recent declaration of war from opposing alliance Galactic Mafia as a cause for an accelerated timeframe.
The fleet’s formation was to complete an operation planned for the following day, which was disrupted by Galactic’s sudden declaration, forcing Kiijata to move the operation to that morning. The operation itself was all but considered scrapped until Kiijata announced his intent to proceed with the operation, refusing to be delayed by, quote, “opportunistic structure hunters high on narcotics”.
By 5:32 NEST, the fleet was assembled and directed towards Archavoinet’s Emerging Conduit. While reports of a firefight are confirmed by the UNF, the exact details of the engagement are sparse at best, and at worst, running rampant with rumors.
A capture of the fleet in warp towards the Emerging site could not be recovered. Member identities are unknown, but it is confirmed that Coordinator Kiijata was among the ships.
The UNF have declined to comment on the operation’s nature until after the war with Galactic Mafia, leaving the UNF’s local sectors to speculate late into the afternoon.
The most widespread rumor is of the operation’s intent, apparently codenamed “Operation: Gunship Diplomacy”, with the goal of commandeering a Triglavian vessel and abducting its crew for reasons unknown.
While it is confirmed multiple atypical UNF vessels were present for the operation for “scientific research”, it is unknown whether the UNF’s goals were to actually intern the crew of a Collective vessel. What is confirmed is an image of the fleet conducting experiments with an Occator present and overseeing the conduct of its fleet members towards the Vedmak.
Energy neutralisation, armor logistics, warp scrambling, and webifying is seen being directed towards the Vedmak, speculated to be the site’s Zorya’s Vedmak.
Other rumors include the Occator being crewed with over a hundred armed personnel, ninety shipboard security marines, and potentially ten clonesoldiers, all for the supposed boarding action of the Vedmak, forcible acquisition of Triglavian datacores containing information on quantum engineering, and even demanding the Triglavians remove Coordinator Kiijata from his Perun suit.
In any event, the move by Coordinator Kiijata on this scale in UNF politics and fleet direction is unprecedented, as Kiijata is known to avoid risky confrontations at any cost, and has never directly involved himself in UNF fleet coordination, having only participated for his corporation’s namesake of prospecting the UNF’s wrecks and any rare technologies, while never engaging directly in combat.
With such accusations of him overstepping his bounds, questions remain about the motive for his disparate behavior.
