Speaking publicly for the first time as head of state on board the Avatar class titan TES Purity, flagship for the Imperial Guard’s Throne Worlds Fleet, Empress Catiz spoke of a new era for the Amarr Empire under her rule, with focus on bolstering the strength of the Imperial economy, rejuvenating the Imperial Armed Forces to combat ongoing threats to the Amarr people, and renewed foreign policy that will see the Empire more open to foreign trade than ever before.
Empress Catiz also took time to offer her thanks to independent capsuleers for assistance rendered to IAF in combatting the extremist group “Purity of the Throne”, who have been forced into full retreat after a relentless series of raids by capsuleer groups across the cluster. She further emphasized that loyalist capsuleer forces have a larger than ever role to play in protecting the safety and security of the Empire, announcing a grand expansion of capsuleer military training that will begin in quarter four of YC118.
Speaking before an almost three thousand strong audience of capsuleers in orbit of Amarr Prime, as well as senior officers of the Imperial Guard, the Empress was only briefly interrupted as two pilots from Rote Works, a rumored subsiduary of the notorious alliance Rote Kapelle, attempted to halt the celebration by detonating two Providence class freighters packed with explosives alongside TES Purity. The resulting explosion did significant damage to the vessel's starboard side flank, blasting away her outer armor and shell plating, which caused a series of structural fires. These appeared to be extingushed over the course of the subeequent half hour as the newly crowned Empress continued her address, seemingly unaffected.
The Imperial Guard has already responded to press requests for further information regarding the damage sustained by TES Purity, confirming that the vessel will return to Safizon, where she will remain gravdocked for eight weeks whilst repairs and a full reactor and propusion inspection are carried out. Details of any casualties on board TES Purity were however withheld by the Ministry of War.
A spokesperson also confirmed the Imperial Guard's authorization for the destruction of a Paladin class Marauder piloted by Lysus, Champion to Aritcio Kor-Azor in the YC118 Succession Trials, after blasphemous behavior during the address. The execution was carried out by independent Amarr Loyalists on order of Khemon Dulsur an-Tetrimon, Grand Master of the Order of St. Tetrimon.
Despite her rousing words and revelations of plans for a more progressive Empire, the address made by the Empress has been somewhat overshadowed in the media by an unprecedented meeting between herself and Sanmatar Maleatu Shakor, leader of the Minmatar Republic, following her coronation this afternoon. Onlookers commented that both parties seemed in good spirits, sharing what appeared to be jovial conversation over the course of almost a half hour in the banquet hall of the Imperial Palace in Dam-Torsad.
Sanmatar Shakor made headlines earlier today with his surprise arrival in the Imperial Capital, throwing the Amarr and Matari press into disarray, before causing even more controversy with his choice of guest for the coronation ceremony as he arrived at the Basilica of St. Gheinok the First Prophet with Keitan Yun, former Matari Ambassador to the CONCORD assembly, as his guest.
Official images of the coronation and the subsequent reception released by Amarr Certified News show Sanmatar Shakor sporting traditional black Brutor Tribe robes, his ornate Khumaak strapped across his broad shoulders. Many of the images show the leader of the Tribal Council conversing with Empress Catiz whilst she is still dressed in full coronation regalia, the golden crown of Holy Amarr perched on top of her intricately braided hair.
With official affairs now winding down after a momentous day in the Amarr capital, the spotlight now turns on the city of Dam-Torsad itself as elaborate pyrotechnic displays light up the skies, and citizens of the Empire prepare for a week of celebrations to mark this auspicious event which will culminate on Friday evening with the ceremony of Shathol'Syn.]]>
An unprecedented and completely unexpected turn of events, the confirmation of the Sanmatar’s crossing from Heimatar into the Imperial region of Devoid via the Ammatar Mandate has left both the Amarr and Matari media in a state of utter confusion, as analysts on both sides of the border attempt to theorize on the outcome of what could become the first face to face meeting of the Amarr and Matari heads of state since the formation of the Minmatar Republic.
While the Empire traditionally offers an invitation for the Matari head of state to attend events of interstellar significance that are hosted within Imperial borders as a courtesy, this astonishing turn of events marks the first time ever that the leader of the Minmatar Republic will have accepted an invitation of this nature, and will also be the first time in the history of the Republic that the Matari head of state has set foot on Amarr Prime.
It is reported at this stage that after almost twenty minutes of confusion at the Ammatar Border, a Republic Fleet convoy of approximately thirty vessels, including a Tempest Tribal Issue carrying Sanmatar Shakor, was granted passage through three Ammatar systems in Derelik before being met in the system of Lisudeh by an Imperial Guard escort.
In what appears to be the extension of an olive branch from the Imperial Armed Forces to the Republic Military, the Republic Fleet convoy was permitted to cross the border into Amarr sovereign space, and Sanmatar Shakor is currently under joint Imperial Guard and Republic Fleet escort to the Imperial Capital.]]>
Set to occur at 14:00 NEST tomorrow in the Basilica of St. Gheinok the First Prophet, the ceremony which is expected to be the most lavish coronation in memory has attracted heads of state, political figures and senior military personnel from across the cluster.
With security activity in the Imperial capital at record levels and the entire Imperial Guard on standby, thousands of foreign dignitaries await the crowning of the next leader of the Amarr Empire, including Gallente President Jacus Roden, FIO Director Mentas Blaque, and more than fifty members of the Gallente Senate.
Dignitaries from various megacorporations are also present, given the strong business relations that Empress Catiz enjoys with the Caldari State. Representatives from the big eight, including the entire Chief Executive Panel have been sighted and rumors are that a number of high profile military figures from the Caldari Navy and State Protectorate are reported to have also been invited to the celebration, along with members of the Inner Circle and leaders of the Directive Enforcement Department.
With Purity of the Throne extremists in full retreat after the relentless efforts of independent capsuleers to stamp their activity out, the coronation is set to go ahead as planned, and it is rumored that Empress Catiz herself will make a public appearance at around 20:00 NEST tomorrow in order to inspect the IAF Honor Guard in orbit of Amarr Prime and address capsuleers from across the cluster.
At this stage, there is no word on attendance from the Minmatar Republic, with the office of Press for the Tribal Council declining to comment on the fanfare across the border.]]>
Speaking during a short break after an inspection tour of shipbuilding facilities in orbit of Diaderi II, Admiral Karetta expressed his “utter delight” at the news that Capsuleers have taken up arms against Purity of the Throne Insurgents, branding the organization targeting the Imperial Guard as “an utter embarrassment to all those of Amarr heritage” and a “significant threat to the sanctity and security of the Amarr Empire.”
The forty-five-year veteran of the Amarr Navy further praised capsuleer efforts, stating that “while some may fear Empyreans, and hold a reserved and guarded view of those who operate as independent capsuleers, it cannot be ignored that they are a force to be reckoned with, and when harnessed correctly, can be an incredibly valuable ally.”
When questioned regarding the short notice inspection of facilities in Diaderi, Admiral Karetta appeared to be keen to assuage concerns regarding security, saying that “on my return from business in Yulai, where coincidentally, I had the pleasure to speak with several members of the Council of Stellar Management this week, I felt it prudent to take a short detour in order to inspect the progress on several dozen vessels of the Third Fleet that are currently gravdocked here. Routine refitting inspection, that’s all.”
In his closing remarks, Admiral Karetta lauded the incredibly efficiency of capsuleers in assisting to deal with the Purity of the Throne, before quipping “perhaps we’ll nano-coat the refitted vessels in white for a while, in celebration of the ascension of Empress Catiz.
The Amarr Navy highly encourages capsuleers who have taken up arms against Purity of the Throne to wear their colors in defiance of such unclean goals, and as a symbol of unity, celebration, and support for Empress Catiz.”
Initial reports indicate that Purity of the Throne continue to operate in various locations across the cluster, with the Amarr Navy issuing frequent telemetry updates on known locations.]]>
In a statement released just moments ago, a spokeswoman for the Emperor Family confirmed that “three chemical devices were placed and subsequently detonated around an atmosphere handling and processing plant on board the station’s mid-level service deck.
This resulted in three decks of the station’s security sector becoming flooded with GR-12 military grade nerve gas, after it was drawn in to the station’s ventilation system”.
It has since been confirmed by the Imperial Guard that there was no loss of human life due to the attack, however a division of 246 Syrikos hounds were killed after their kennel block was flooded with hazardous vapors.
The station, which is home to both Emperor Family civilian administrative personnel and a division of more than two hundred thousand Imperial Guard military personnel, remains fully open to the public for trade and operations despite the lockdown of the affected area, which was evacuated before any major effects of the gas could take hold.
It is believed at this stage that suspicious behavior from several members of the public in addition to noise from detonations of the chemical devices alerted officers of the Imperial Guard who were on security duty at the time. This enabled them to react quickly by shutting down the atmosphere handling plant before evacuating and sealing off the affected area.
The Imperial Guard and Ministry of Internal Order are currently investigating holvid footage from the station’s security archives in order to determine the identity and motives of the attackers, with many experts believing that the blame lies with Amarr purists in opposition to Empress Catiz’s claim to the throne.]]>
Excited citizens took to the fluid routers throughout the early afternoon, posting pictures and holovids of more than fifty officers dressed in specially commissioned golden ceremonial dropsuits bearing the sigil of the Emperor Family.
In some instances, the Imperial Guard took time out from what is believed to be an inspection tour in order to pose for pictures with bystanders and observers. The Scope was able to secure several minutes of General Sarshor’s time to find out more about preparations for the coronation of Empress Catiz I, which will be held on September 27th.
Speaking when questioned regarding the presence of the Imperial Guard, the General confirmed that “while the exact details of this operation are classified, part of today’s objective is a basic field test of new dropsuit technology that has recently been developed.”
He continued to expand on preparations for the coronation ceremony, and concerns which have been raised regarding security, commenting that that “there are some who would like to prevent the rightful ascension of the Empress to the throne, based on ridiculous notions of inappropriate lineage and impurity. The Imperial Guard is here to ensure that any such heretical behavior and rumors are quashed with extreme prejudice.”
The Imperial Armed Forces remain on high alert since the assassination of Empress Jamyl I a little over a year ago, with a security budget rumored to be in the hundreds of billions assigned to the coronation ceremony, which is due to take place later this month.]]>
The most committed ten contractors involved in the effort against the Serpentis Corporation will be rewarded with special capital ship blueprint copies at the conclusion of the campaign against the pirate menace. The announced reserve of five single-run Vendetta BPCs and five single-run Vanquisher BPCs will be awarded to those capsuleers that have earned the most points from Scope Network contracts as they aid the empires and fight against the Serpentis threat.
At this point in time, the current listing of top capsuleer contractors as of 118-08-05 is as follows:
The leading ten participants in the efforts against the Serpentis crime organization will be rewarded with special awards of Serpentis capital ship blueprint copies when the campaign concludes. The announced reserve of five single-run Vendetta BPCs and five single-run Vanquisher BPCs will be awarded to those capsuleers that have earned the most points from Scope Network contracts as they aid the empires and fight against the Serpentis threat
The listing of the top capsuleer contractors as of noon standard time YC118-07-20 follows:
The Scope Network's current round of contracts will run for several weeks to come and the top ten participants will be rewarded with additional BPCs upon its conclusion. Five single-run Vendetta BPCs and five single-run Vanquisher BPCs will be available to those who have aided the empires the most and have earned the most points from Scope Network contracts.
As CONCORD re-evaluates the threat level from various organizations and entities across New Eden, it is clear that the usefulness of the service the Scope Network offers is factoring into their calculations. Sources within the DED and the Scope Network have both confirmed that talks between FTL comms giant Semiotique Superluminal, the majority shareholder in the Scope Network, CONCORD and the Gallente Federation are continuing with a view to defining more clearly the operations of the Scope Network.]]>
The address to the interstellar press began as an update on the DED's assessment of the Serpentis Corporation's military capability, after the revelation that the pirate organization has been secretly working on its own breed of capital class vessels in recent months. During the statement, DED Brigadier General Odo Korachi, commander of CONCORD's Genesis Fleet, referred to the Serpentis Corporation's capital ship development program as "a clear and present danger to interstellar security" and "a significant risk to both the Federation and Republic's established and recognized borders".
The statement, which came after the General concluded a briefing with CONCORD's Inner Circle, confirmed rumors that the Serpentis Corporation and Angel Cartel's threat assessment rating has been upgraded to "Significant", one threat level below that of Sansha's Nation. The move comes after the gathering of intelligence which has now confirmed sightings of several capital class vessels bearing the colors of the Serpentis Corporation.
When questioned about capsuleer involvement in attacks on Serpentis Corporation installations, General Korachi, who is considered by many to have a dislike of independent capsuleers after placing bounties on several individuals last year, responded with praise, saying that "capsuleers across the cluster have proven their effectiveness in assisting with the reduction of threat over the course of the last few weeks" before adding that "the DED offer our most sincere thanks to all capsuleers who have contributed to this effort through contracts brokered by the Scope Network, and we hope to see more of the same from independent pilots who wish to assist."
After being further questioned on the nature of the rewards that will be issued to capsuleers who do assist, General Korachi indicated that "compensation for efforts to eradicate or disable Serpentis Corporation assets are a matter that should be discussed between the Scope Network and those who accept contracts" and confirmed that "the DED offers no guidance or regulation on the issue of rewards outside standard legal restrictions."
It is expected that the continued increase in private military contracting will continue in the coming weeks as more independent capsuleers flock to earn sizeable rewards from the Scope Network.]]>
The Scope Network intend to run this initial service for another 4 weeks and to further reward capsuleers taking part in this trial, will reward the top ten participants with additional BPCs. Five single-run Vendetta BPCs and five single-run Vanquisher BPCs will be available to those who have aided the empires the most and have earned the most points from Scope Network contracts.
With full Directive Enforcement Department approval, the Scope Network’s new brokering system has become incredibly popular among independent capsuleers, with tens of thousands utilizing the system to earn rewards based on everything from gathering industrial and manufacturing resources, through to direct mercenary contracts against local pirate elements.
Currently the capsuleers who have earned the most points via this new venture are:
An unprecedented move and the first of its kind after the Scope Network was granted its independent broadcasting license several weeks ago, the revelation has seen independent capsuleers across the cluster flock to earn the rewards currently placed on offer by the Scope, which include seized Serpentis assets that are now being used to rally pilots against the pirate organization.
As the Scope Network’s newest broadcasting channel came online at 11:14 NEST today, transmitting to every capsuleer’s Neocom, CONCORD reiterated its stance on assets, blueprints and equipment recovered from destroyed Serpentis installations, declaring them free salvage to the first pilot who stakes their claim.
Brigadier General Odo Korachi, commanding officer of the DED’s Genesis Fleet, also confirmed during the statement that “all standard CONCORD legislation surrounding capsuleer pilot versus pilot combat is still applicable within these designated locations. This is not a free for all, this is a controlled disposal of illegal installations belonging to an organization deemed as outlaw by the CONCORD assembly.
“We are aware of a significant number of Serpentis Corporation vessels gathered at some of these locations and the Directive Enforcement Department recommends caution in the vicinity of any of these installations.”
General Korachi closed his address by deferring to the Scope regarding rewards to be issued for the destruction of designated targets, formally absolving the DED of any responsibility for the issue of rewards, stating that “the issue of any reward for destruction of hostile assets lies with the Scope Network as a private, independent organization issuing private military contracts in accordance with the Yulai Convention.”
At this stage, more than ten thousand capsuleers are rumored to have already taken private military contracts with the Scope Network.]]>
The deal is believed to have been reached after an extraordinary intervention by the Scope's founder, FTL communications trillionaire Lous Chavol, and a major Scope Network stockholder, Cestelle Ambre. It is understood that Upwell Chairman Yani Sar Arteu and Upwell Security Chief Lars en Ramon met with members of the CONCORD Inner Circle, including the SoCT's Matshi Raish and the Gallente Federation's Devan Malate, at the Scope Development Studio orbiting Orvolle VI's first moon.
This deal comes after the extraordinary grant of an independent galnet broadcasting license to the Scope Network and places the media giant in the position of operating as an information, operations and technology broker between New Eden's empires, megacorporations and independent capsuleers.
Not seen in public for many years, the reclusive Lous Chavol is the owner of a major Gallente FTL communications backbone provider, Semiotique Superluminal, and has continued to hold the controlling interest in the Scope Network since he founded it. Cestelle Ambre is a noted high-tech and media sectors investment guru and it is believed that she has taken a close interest in the development of the Scope media empire. Perhaps related to this is that the Scope's Lina Ambre is the niece of Cestelle Ambre.
Brief statements from CONCORD and the Upwell Consortium have confirmed the outline terms of the arrangment and it is believed the Scope Network will quickly begin its brokerage operations using its access to the galnet FTL communciation system.]]>
During this morning’s hearing following the open Inner Circle session hosted on Tuesday, Federal Intelligence Office Director Mentas Blaque spoke before the group of delegates, affirming the Federation’s position that “the Serpentis Corporation and their Cartel allies pose the most significant security threat to both the security of the Gallente Federation, and our allies in the Republic”.
Director Blaque then elaborated on Federal support for proposed economic sanctions by CONCORD against the Upwell Consortium and its member corporations, stating that “the safety and security of Gallente citizens is of paramount importance and the Federal government takes matters of interstellar security incredibly seriously. We will not stand by and watch a for-profit consortium of corporations toy with the safety of the Gallente people by holding back intelligence on enemy capability that could be vital to bolstering the security of Federal borders against potential attack.”
Girn Egnai, Republic Security Services Director of Operations for the Metropolis region offered further support, speaking after Director Blaque to clarify the Republic’s position that “the Republic Fleet and Republic Security Services are engaged in open and ongoing conflict with the Angel Cartel, and by extension their allies in the Serpentis Corporation. A privately owned, for profit consortium should not be in a position where it is permitted to hold back intelligence that poses a risk to the security of any sovereign state in the cluster.”
At the conclusion of Director Engai’s statement, Director Blaque struck his fist on the table in agreement, before confirming that the Federal Senate was willing to consider sanctions within the Federation against Gallente member corporations of the Upwell Consortium, as well as against business conducted inside its borders by non-Gallente Upwell members.
The State and Empire delegates to the Inner Circle once against offered their acknowledgement and agreement, but as of yet have not formally offered support for any potential sanctions against the Upwell Consortium or its members.
At this stage, the Upwell Consortium has offered no comment when approached by the Scope Network regarding ongoing discussions.]]>
The final holdouts of the Amarr militia fell on YC118.06.19, with the four systems of Gebuladi, Raa, Sirekur and Vimeini changing hands in the culmination of a lightning offensive by TLF forces that claimed some 30 systems in the space of a week.
In a special ceremony at the Grand Caravanserai on Matar, Sanmatar Shakor invoked the once more the struggle for the liberation of enslaved Minmatar everywhere and poured praise on the militia fighters for their efforts in achieving complete domination over the contested zone spanning border constellations in the Bleak Lands, Devoid, Heimatar and Metropolis regions.
Standing before the Chiefs of the Republic's Tribal Council, the Sanmatar read aloud the citation of the Stripes of Fury medal:
"How many times must they try to place our people in chains before they will learn? We do not falter. We do not run. We always rise up and take back what is ours and scream the war cry of freedom! For their foolish oppression of our people, the Tribal Liberation Force has brought them to their knees! On behalf of the seven tribes and the Minmatar Republic, I hereby award you the Stripes of Fury."
While this is the first occasion on which the Minmatar forces have managed to claim the entire warzone, it remains to be seen if their grip will endure for very long. Past experience has shown that the limited warfare envisaged by the CONCORD Emergency War Powers Act will go back and forth according to the fortunes of the empires contending in what some capsuleers refer to as "Pendulum Wars".]]>
Speaking on behalf of the Society of Conscious Thought, as the Jove Empire delegate to the CONCORD Assembly, Elder Mentor Matshi Raish questioned the motives of the Upwell Consortium after it was revealed that the organization acquired a significant number of blueprints, research components and construction components from raids on several Serpentis Corporation installations over the course of the last few days.
Believed to have been carried out by Intara Direct Action and the Ostrakon Agency, these raids have primarily focused on Serpentis shipyards that were rumored to be constructing a new breed of capital ships bearing similarities to Gallente designed vessels of the same classes.
In a hard hitting statement from Raish, which drew agreement from the other four empire delegates to the Inner Circle, he encouraged Upwell to hand over all materials that have been recovered from the raids to the Directive Enforcement Department, before alluding to the fact that he may push for economic sanctions against the consortium and its member corporations should they fail to comply with the request.
When approached for comment after the conclusion of the session, Elder Mentor Raish declined to comment further, referring the press to his earlier statements during the Inner Circle session. All four other delegates similarly declined to comment outside the Inner Circle chamber.]]>
FOUNTAIN – The Scope is now able to confirm earlier rumors of an attack on a Guardian Angel capital shipyard in low orbit of Serpentis Prime VII.
Initial reports of the strike surfaced several hours ago after a number of distress calls were intercepted and recorded by a Federation Navy Tripwire border posts in the Elerelle constellation of Solitude, however the situation remained unclear until footage of the aftermath began to arrive at the Scope less than an hour ago.
Initial holoreel recordings handed to the Scope clearly show a plume of debris burning up as it entered the atmosphere of what has now been confirmed to be Serpentis Prime VII. The Scope has also been able to confirm that the facility attacked was a low orbit shipyard constructing prototype capital class vessels for the Serpentis Corporation.
Reports indicate that an unidentified strike force was able to covertly penetrate the Serpentis Corporation’s home system and launch an assault on the shipyard with a number of boarding parties, before crippling the facility with a sizeable explosion, destabilizing its orbit and causing it to burn up as it entered the planet’s atmosphere.
There have been no reports of debris reaching the surface of Serpentis Prime VII, however intercepted and decoded communications from the attackers has revealed that a sizeable amount of equipment and blueprints were stolen during the attack, including one set of blueprints referred to only as “Vehement”.
Both the Directive Enforcement Department and the Federal Intelligence Office have declined to comment on the situation after a number of vessels bearing the markings of Intara Direct Action were spotted in Solitude earlier today.]]>
A source within the DED has informed the Scope they are aggressively pursuing the investigation but despite increased patrols across the cluster they are yet to encounter any evidence of so-called “supercapital” tech being operated by the Serpentis.
The Scope approached the DED’s Brigadier General Odo Korachi for a statement earlier this morning and he issued a brief response. While he would neither confirm nor deny sightings of the tech, he has urged capsuleers not to take matters into their own hands and instead report any unusual activity to the DED.
The unusual statement from General Korachi follows unconfirmed reports of a stolen copy of the FIO dossier on the Serpentis military buildup making its way into the hands of an entity known only as “The Deathless”. While being confused as to the exact status of “The Deathless”, these reports allege this identifier was recently used in the hiring of several mercenary corporations previously active on the planet Chandeille. When questioned on this matter, Korachi refused to comment.]]>
"We're concerned, no doubt about it," said Chemal Tech CEO Boselena Enault in response to questions during an open session at TechUpCon 118. "The Serpentis Corporation is a very capable rogue actor with access to vast resources and some of the most twisted scientific minds in New Eden. Add to that the military capability of the Angel Cartel and the fact that those organizations have had years to hybridize and improve capsuleer level miltech and we certainly have a problem as a civilization. I would wish that CONCORD could openly acknowledge this but they seemingly don't want to as yet. It may be that the private sector will have to take steps to fill the gap."
The Upwell Consortium's security has been in the public eye for many months, with the capsuleer community in particular pressing Upwell for assurances of adequate safeguards with regard to Citadel technology. Director Lars en Ramon of Upwell's Department of Friendship and Mutual Assistance, responsible for security policy and support between consortium members, has just returned from a tour of Upwell installations in the outer regions. Although present at closed sessions of TechUpCon 118, Director en Ramon was not available for comment.
Regarding other news, Rhoun Ysatault, CEO of Upwell member and entertainment behemoth Impetus, was upbeat when questioned about the recent announcement of the Scope Galactic News Network's award of the first independent broadcasting license for GalNet operations. "I welcome it. Impetus considers the Scope a partner and we expect that the mutual benefits we have long enjoyed from our commercial relationship will continue in the future."]]>
Speaking on behalf of the Secure Commerce Commission from the Headquarters of the news organization, SCC Operations Director Ryde Froyer congratulated the Scope Galactic News Network on its recognition as the first truly independent news and current affairs broadcasting network in the cluster.
Remarking on the network’s huge growth in popularity among capsuleers and planetary citizens alike, Director Froyer commended the network’s “flawless journalistic integrity, outstanding service to news outlets across the cluster and incredible diversity in both broadcasting and programming.”
Attending the celebrations together were the two journalists who have shot to interstellar fame over the course of the last year as the Scope’s broadcast anchors, Lina Ambre and Alton Haveri. Both were decorated with CONCORD’s highest civilian award, the Platinum Star, for ‘outstanding and impartial service to journalism in the field, and in the newsroom’, after having spent almost two decades and thirty five years with the Scope respectively.
After becoming household names across the cluster, when asked for comment Ambre remarked that “the whole thing is absolutely incredible and I’m unbelievably proud of my co-anchor, Alton, and the tens of thousands of staff who work so hard to ensure that the Scope remains the premier source for news and current events in the cluster.”
Haveri appeared to be similarly elated, spending much of his time speaking with fellow journalists, while commenting that “the issue of the independent license is a fantastic leap forward for the Scope” and that he “couldn’t be more proud of the team at the Scope, and more blessed to have such a fantastic co-anchor, after such an incredible year of broadcasting.”
This new recognition for the Scope has led many to speculate that the network may choose to further loosen its ties with the Gallente Federation and its media industry, and could possibly look to branch out in future as an entirely independent broadcasting body.]]>
