It certainly has. Where there is a will, there is a way. Much like how smugglers and other entities establish hidden outposts throughout empire space, numerous groups have established settlements on the virgin worlds of Syndicate. Some of these settlements experienced better success than others, as evidenced in a declassified report provided some years ago by Katrina Oniseki.
Because of the threat of retaliation from the Gallente Federation, many of these attempts fail without proper support from the Intaki Syndicate. It is really a shame that the Federation has yet to make amends on the people they forcibly and wrongfully exiled from their space.
With I-RED’s most recent return to Syndicate, we have sponsored the creation and development of a settlement unlike any other in the region - a true colony. The Utpattia Protectorate is a beacon of light in a vast sea of darkness. The colonists, many of ethnic Intaki descent, have built something truly incredible. It is amazing how much Intaki native to Syndicate can accomplish when provided ample opportunities for growth, prosperity, and safety. It is a shame that the Roden administration fails to see this.
However, bias against the Intaki Syndicate is still obvious among Federal supporters. During the ill-fated Isonomia Caucus and Villore Assembly, any attempt by I-RED delegates to voice concerns for the Intaki of Syndicate were quickly rebuked by Federation loyalists. This was a real tragedy as the opportunity to repair ill will between the Federation and Syndicate was passed up over negative biases and stereotypes rampant in the Federation.
The Utpattia Protectorate, nurtured by the Syndicate Stability Initiative II™, represents a commitment of mutual benefit to the Intaki people. The atmosphere on the colony is completely unlike that which was observed in the events leading up to the Waschi Uprising in Waschi City. Here, Caldari and Intaki alike work and live together in harmony, unified by a common purpose - the prosperity and well-being of all.
Contrary to popular belief in the Federation, the Intaki Syndicate is not simply a den of low-life, criminals, and scumbags. It is full of families. Of children laughing and hopeful of the future. Of mothers and fathers working tirelessly to provide for themselves and their loved ones. A life working less-than-legal activities is a matter of survival, not desire, by many in the Intaki Syndicate. I-RED has and always will provide opportunities to live a comfortable life free from the stress associated with illegal work. The Utpattia Protectorate stands as a testament to that fact. And perhaps one day the Federation will see past their biases.
