[UNF-A]Eugales VI Orbital Yard Development

This has grown distinct enough from my terraforming and colonization projects now to warrant its own thread.

Some of you may be aware of ongoing developments in orbit of planet VI in Eugales, adjacent to my running projects on planet, and those will be detailed here.

What is it:
The Orbital Yards over Eugales VI(Shine Ehklel) are a collection of growing facilities, including one Astrahus citadel, the planetary customs office, and several non-upwell structures established between the two, including several orbital drydocks, fighter hangars, and defensive installations at a middle distance between the Astrahus and Customs Office.

The Central Yard facility comprises six major structures, and a number of secondary and tertiary platforms, an expanding primary platform that is, in the long term, planned to be the central hub of an Orbital Ring installation which houses primary docking facilities and screening points for incoming materials and personnel, repair gantries, medical centers, and close in and far range defensive weapons. Four external drydock facilities are in place for larger vessels, and an assembly drydock structure is in place to facilitate industrial processes and construction.

An Orbital Tether Receiving point is also connected to the central yard facility, which connects to a ground station at the Arcology and is now a mass transit hub for both material and people.

These orbital developments are extremely resource intensive, and expansions are projected to continue as time goes on, and materials will be required to fuel this. I will likely be posting opportunities to assist in meeting ongoing goals of expansion in the near future.

Thank you for your time and Fair Fortunes,

Namas Khasri Brezia,

The scale of this project seems extensive I have been delighted to aid you in small ways in the recent past it is exhilarating to note that works continue and now knowing the full extent of your plans I am delighted.

I look forward to seeing this project in full motion.

In light of some recent developments

I’d like to formally invite the commander of the FIO’s Taskforce to visit the Orbital Yards and Security Corridor astrahus, or even to thee Arcology itself on the planet below, so that perhaps some amount of coordination can occur. To my knowledge however, aside from the usual Serpentis activity common of low security space, there’s very little for them to dig their hands into. I do believe this task may be an unfortunate snipe hunt assigned to these esteemed men and women.

I am a day (or ten) late, which is a habit of mine - though I have upgraded my cybernetics, which may help.

It would be unfortunate if Intelligence resources were wasted on a snipe hunt. However, if the trail of political terrorism does lead through Eugales, whatever the likelihood, your invitation would give the Eagles a roost. I hope they take advantage of the opportunity to save on some startup costs.

An few notable updates regarding the Orbital Yards have occurred in the past month, many of which I am quite proud to be announcing!

The addition of five more XL external drydocks has, as of this morning, been completed, as well as the addition of another XL assembly drydock. These additions correspond with the demands placed by increased output of the Orbital Yards in the past weeks and projected shifts in industrial activity.

Further expansion of the primary platform is proceeding at projected rates, with a seven kilometer logistics and receiving center being added for incoming and outgoing shipments to and from the orbital tether, multiple habitation units including a counterboarding security barracks, and more launch bays for patrol fighters across system nearing completion.

The FIO commander has, as yet, not responded to my offer for them to stage from the Security Corridor astrahus, though there have been some notable encounters in-space, none yet resulting in conflict. FIO units have indeed been stepping up system patrols, and often have placed themselves in positions that inevitably have led to standoffs with UNF’s own patrols. No shots have been fired, and UNF units maintain a ‘do not engage unless aggressed’ policy toward them at this time.

Also of note, is an increase in sightings of Serpentis Clonesoldier vessels(as many as four in an asteroid belt, and eight in system at a time), and material transport vessels passing through belts, and a number of Mordu’s Special Warfare Units… it seems Eugales is becoming popular, and further security operations will have to be stepped up.

I am no official liaison on behalf of the Federation, but I sincerely hope you might seek to apply for ascension at some point given the extensive developments you are doing on Eugales VI (a system within the historic borders of the Federation). I also hope that some kind of discussions were held with the local system inhabitants prior to the initiation of such developments. It would be a shame if, in your entrepreneurial capsuleer spirit, you engaged in territorial powerplays without regard for the opinions of those who have settled the area before you.

In any case, the development of the system whether by a recognized Federal member state or an independent group can likely only serve to the benefit of all those who reside in the area. I look forward to continued updates.
