An Unsteady Peace Arises in Twilight Imperium

The Sol fleet retake Mecatol, revealing a Gravity Rift in the process.

Commodore Josh Vanderwall of the Sol Federation says: After careful planning, the Sons of Sol were able to wrest control of four planets in two systems from the villains that slaughtered our fleet and stole Mecatol from us. With Mecatol Rex back in our control, we are gearing up as quickly as possible to finally achieve our long-standing aims. With the resources available now, thanks to the tireless researchers back home, we have been able to construct a Space Dock on Mecatol once again, in preparation for our final push to our objective.

Working with the Jol-Nar proved ultimately futile, since the Mindnet fled Mecatol in fear of our glorious fleet's might, but he has not betrayed us yet, as he did with our longest standing trade partner, so we'll see whether the Universities prove good to their word.

The triumphant reclamation of Everra has finally come to pass. Jord's sister planet in the nearby nebula was out of our control for too long, but we have made peace with our aggressors again - now to see how long it lasts this time.

A true testament to human ingenuity and resolve, we have most recently completed our goal to control Mecatol Rex, have a Space Dock present there, and have eight ships in the system's orbiting fleet. This pushes us ever closer to victory, and I couldn't be more proud of the scientists, captains, and soldiers who are responsible for this incredible feat. For glory and for Sol!

Turing Host Protocol "Justin Clouse" of the L1z1x Mindnet Says:

Galactic Standardized Unit Of Temporal Measurement 001010 to 001011

Command: Access 001010, 001011

Status: Retrieving directory

Status: Offsets: Server: 0. Local system: -101001. Galactic Variance: +101001

The Mindnet armada prepares to withdraw home.

Response: Connected to Galactic.Mindnet.Advancement

Warning: Connection severed with primary fleet 0001. Fleet unable to transit for this cycle until communications restored. Analysis indicates source of jamming to be Brotherhood of Yin.

Status: The Universities of Jol-Nar fleet within range to strike Mindnet homeworld [0.0.0]. Diplomatic protocols enabled to determine logic of The Universities of Jol-Nar aggression. Protocols fail to compile a response before Jol-Nar fleet transits into [0.0.0] sector. Home defense fleet 0010 no longer functional. Federation of Sol scout fleets seize additional planets in Mindnet home sectors. Production output calculated to -64% decreases in efficiency and resources. The great memory banks and stardocks of the Mindnet have been invaded by organics.

Warning: Galactic.Mindnet.Advancement strategic analyzes indicates 92.899999% chance of Brotherhood of Yin forces using wormhole to flank primary fleet 0001. Recommend dispatch cruiser to scout wormhole exit.

Query: Galactic.Mindnet.Advancement calculating response.



Response: Diplomatic protocols and algorithms flushed from logic centers. Prime directive of all available computational resources to combat and strategic operations.

Status: Communications reestablished with primary fleet 0001. Primary fleet 0001 engine output temporarily enhanced to 150% efficiency. Primary fleet 0001 will transit to Mindnet homeworld [0.0.0] in two cycles. Virus introduced into Universities of Jol-Nar defensive network. One planetary defense installation offline. Jol-Nar fleet seizes control of planets New Albion and Starport. Production output calculated to -35% decreases in efficiency and resources. Expeditionary fleet 0011 tasked with assaulting Federation of Sol conquered planets.

Pending: Assembly of galactic senate convened for first time in three cycles. Docket of voting entry Warship Commission.

Command: Access 001010, 001011
