Mission 40: Intercept and secure Gallic Gate and Lane parts
Mission level: Mixed
Mission type: Repetitive
Mission status: Open
In sharp contrast to Sirian Houses, the Kingdom of Gallia is exploiting different technology on the construction and operation of Trade Lanes and Jump Gates. It is thus extremely important to obtain some samples of those components and analyze the technology used if we ever want to infiltrate their network. Unsurprisingly, the transportation of these parts is highly regulated like Ageira does in Liberty. Subsequently you are instructed to search and obtain in whatever means necessary Gate/Lane Parts from a transport using EFL Oil & Machinery, IDF Shipping or Gallic Royal Navy identification. Within Gallic territory you are allowed to operate only from Gallic Brigand and Maquis installations. As by now, we know little to nothing about either the technology of Gallic Gate and Lane parts and their both internal and external transportation routes, as The Crown, unsurprisingly protects their secrets as careful as Ageira flunkies do in Liberty.

Phase 1, Advanced, Repetitive, Open
Acquire by any means up-to-date and plausible information about the transportation routes and shipments schedule of Gallic Gate and Lane parts. Mania-interrogation of individuals possibly responsible for their transportation is highly encouraged. Submit a report including relevant Neural Net logs and identification of the provider of this information.

Following the IMG refusal to Bretonia government's demand to hand Aland Shipyard over to them, the Crayter Republic joined the latter and declared war on IMG despite their close alliance. While the crisis between the two former allies was quickly resolved, Crayter still has many anti-IMG, pro-war officials within the government and naval forces.

In order to counter this, after the IMG Guildmaster's approval, the Lane Hackers are preparing to populate a small settlement on Pecos where they will install strong scanner and communication modules which enhanced by the moon's thin atmosphere, will provide IMG with a very good intelligence system and communication with the outside world. However this will also serve the Lane Hackers as we create our first foothold on a planetary object. Tests and research which required lots of space can now be conducted on our new settlement as well as provide a home to Hackers who are feeling uncomfortable living for many years away from the surface. Finally, this moon has deep reserves of deuterium which with the right automation and processing can help alleviate all of Mactan's fuel shortages.

Mission 14: Conduct espionage of primary trading companies
Mission level: Advanced
Mission type: Single
Mission status: Completed
Following the collapse of the rich gold fields of Dublin, the professorship has noticed a very slight tightening in our wallets, as our nefarious, ingenious methods for obtaining credits now no longer include relieving corporate hoodlums of their valuable gold ore. This change in the Dublin system also means that they have moved from hauling ore, to hauling commodities. The mission itself will consist of the Technician finding a transport, and verifying his cargo and purchase point. He then will tail the transport to his sell point. Make sure to get captures of sell point, cargo, ship name, ID, IFF and purchase point. Do not extort the transport, as this can interfere with the mission. This is an information-gathering mission, not a credit-earner. Each phase of the mission will take place against a specific thorn-in-our-backside. Phases may be completed in any order. Do your best to avoid attracting unwelcome attention. It is permitted to arrange outside assistance to cooperate in the completion of this mission. Lane Hackers may leave Liberty to complete this mission, although targets should be originally acquired in Liberty space. Don't do anything stupid if you leave Liberty. Like getting yourself killed.

Report of Mission 2 Phase 1
Recon of the Oita system

System accessible from Colorado through the Illinois system. The stable Jump Hole from Colorado to Illinois is located in sector 3F. Preliminary scans showed a probability of large hostile forces in the Illinois system, so the use of WHACK special maneuver was necessary, Trainee Ejet Moon helped in the execution. The suspicion about enemy peresence in Illinois proved to be correct. Numerous Liberty Police installations and ships were encountered.
The Jump Hole to Colorado in the Illinois system is heavily guarded, this includes:
A space station.
A battleship.
Two weapons platforms.
There are also two additional police stations in the system: Springfield Station and Police Plaza, also several police patrols were spotted.

The stable Jump Hole to the Oita system is defended by two weapons platforms, located in sector 4F. The map of the Illinois system, and the detailed position of defences around Colorado Jump Hole. Attempting a jump to the Illinois system without WHACK or heavy shielding or hull reinforcement is not advised. Since the enemy defences are almost entirely consist of weapons designed to repel large enemy fleets, smaller ships like light fighters can easily dodge enemy fire until reaching the Oita jump hole.

The overal map of the Oita system. During my recon mission I did not encounter hostile or any other vessel in the system. There are two derelict objects in the Oita system which may have significance. The first is the remains of an unknown space installation near the planet Sakurajima, further study is required. The other one is a severely damaged fighter class ship. The wreck contained an unknown weapon, which was handed to the Lane Hacker R&D for further analysis.
The Jump Hole to the unexplored system is located in sector 6E. The scans of the Jump Hole indicate it is stable and safe for use. There is no any kind of defence or hostile movement around the Jump Hole or anywhere in the Oita system.

Reporting succesful completition of Mission 2 Phase 2 Alpha - recon of the Ellesmere system. Beta component was done by Miss Moon at the same time. My results:

Entering Ellsemere system is highly dangerous. At the jumphole from Oita I counted four defense platforms and eight Avenger fighters. It was looking like that is the standard security protocol in the system - all installations were guarded similary. The navigation out there is more than hard. Its dark, gloomy and full of cruel-looking rocks than can tear holes into the hull of smaller vessels. Autopilot is strongly unadvised - except around the sun - since you cant realy see it, its easy to wander into its corona, and dont find the way out.

So the recorded objects from sector row 3-4-5. At B5 there's the jumphole to Oita - WHACK on entry is strongly advised if possible. There's Alert station at D4 and Eureka resaerch station at F-G5 near to the planet labelled as Fosheim. The camera recordings are a bit scrambled, its hard to make recognisable recordings due to the lack of light and the radiation. Here's some parts what I could decode.

Reconnaisance of the Kansas System: Phase 1: Sectors 1 through 4.

Kansas seems to be a system devoid of any corporate or criminal life. No trade lanes or official Jump Gates.In order to conduct a thorough analysis of Kansas, I took the following flight path: [Image: screen29d.th.png]


Kansas has two suns, a Medium Green and a Medium Blue and is home to two planets and two moons, which I shall discuss later. My very first observation was the particles floating in space. They are truly phenomenal, but my scanners could not identify what they were composed of. There is no background radiation present.

There is nothing remarkable in Sectors A1 - H1. On my route I encountered no ships, structures or phenomenon of any kind.

In Sector Two, there is an area of key interest. Below the horizon, there is a large red cloud. On further inspection, it is boutniful in Iridium. This means a large number of miners, the only contacts in this otherwise barren system. The cloud has sensor efficiency reducing qualities, and is named the Tuttle Creek Nebula. Irridium is highly profitable and miners of it are a key target due to their use of the Magellan system. The majority of the nebula is situated within Sector F2. Within the cloud, I uncovered the wreck of a Lane Hacker Sabre, named "Rattlesnake". I managed to recover information from its black box recorder and uncovered that the pilot had been following strange emissions from the cloud. On research I uncovered an Unknown Jump Gate of Alien design. The Jump Gate does not register on scanners. On questioning of locals, I discovered it is linked to an 'Unknown' system, where scanners do not function at all.

[Image: screen7d.th.png]
[Image: screen13t.th.png]


Sector E2 is home to the moon Olathe. Research suggests it once had its own moons, but was dragged into the gravity well of Planet Topeka. It is currently uninhabitable.

Sectors C3 - C4 is home to the Dodge Asteroid Field. This has not yet been surveyed for any mineral or ore presence. There is nothing worth noting in the C3 Sector of the Dodge Asteroid Field.

Sector E3 is where Planet Topeka is located, a large Gas Giant. Also deemed uninhabitable.

Sectors F4-F5-G5 is home to the Overland Park Asteroid Field. Also not yet surveyed to have any mineral or ore presence. Sector F4 in the asteroid field is where a Jump Hole to Virginia is located.

In Sector C4, there is a Jump Hole to Magellan, situated in the Dodge Asteroid Field. Also within this sector there is a Junction Wreck, the remains of a station. The origins are unknown as it follows all other House construction material usage.
EDIT: Recently I found out that this is where NTF have set up their base.

In summary, Phase 1 has revealed the following objects:

The Tuttle Creek Nebula, containing large amounts of Iridium and a key mining area. (F2)

Rattlesnake, a Lane Hacker Sabre Wreck (F2) containing the following items:
20 Tonnes of Platinum

Sectors B6 - C6 - C7 - D7 contains the Arkansas Ice Asteroid Field. Water is abundant here.

Sector C6 contains Planet Witchita. Apparently, Liberty Scientists are preparing for an expedition to the planet to survey it for possible terraforming.

Sector E6 is where the Medium Green is located, with the following properties:
Type: F4
Luminosity: IV
Color: Green
Temperature: 6K
Mass: 1.99x10e30 KG

After participating in a race event in Dublin I thought that I'm going to visit Cambridge in my Arrow to see if I'll be lucky enough to scan some intruding 'sairs according to the assigned mission. I was. Since Omega-5 is a system what traders and smugglers tell scary tales about, I thought I'm going to check the jumphole leading to it. That thing was just lingering around it in the ice-cloud. As I imagined their possible forces, I was thinking about everything except that. That beast is possibly bigger than the F...- well any warship I saw before. I must admit that my pants were full in my tiny cardi-filled craft. I'm glad that I was precautious enough to mask my IFF. So I wasn't realy testing my luck with proper interrogation - I just scanned it from nose to tail and got the hell out of the vicinity of that monstrum as fast as I was abled to.

Reporting the partial success of Mission 5 - requested reconnaissance of the KNF activity in the Tau systems.

Well that was a hard task - since monitoring the Taus for weeks did not bring any results. However we managed to encounter a KNF fleet in Leeds. They never passed the border thou - apparently they were stationed on Stokes mining facility. Their objective certainly was to raid planet Leeds and insult the local BAF forces. The siege of the planet was unsuccessful, they sustained heavy damage, and retreated to Stokes.

To Venerable Professor Moriarity and Acclaimed Director Phate:


I wish to report my involvement in partial completion of Mission 7 - securing a kiloton each of H-fuel, ship hull panels, engine components and assorted ship maintenance materials. With assistance from Mr Zokas, I have managed to fulfil the requirements concerning H-fuel and ship hull panels. Engine components shall be dealt with at a later time, either by myself or another available Technician.


Concerning H-fuel:

This part of the assignment had been simple to deal with. After a brief congregation with my contacts in Leiden Base, we have managed to intercept a misaddressed broadcast transmission, widely proclaiming news of an H-fuel convoy due to arrive in the Galileo system inside a quarter or two. Having by then acquired a Pirate Transport for my own use, I endeavoured to intercept this convoy and lighten their load, leaving any excess fuel to be gained in the hands of our Lovable Rogues in Padua Base. Thus I aimed to pre-emptively re-compensate for what they might have viewed as a transgression of our unspoken agreement in the Galileo Sector.

The vessel I targeted was a Samura Train - SIS Olita. Once I confirmed that they were, in fact, hauling H-fuel - targeting false positives would serve no-one - I explosively decommissioned a few of their tanks. I ventured to take enough for both The Lane Hackers and the Lovable Rogues, yet at the same time leaving the ship in working condition - again, needless investigations into overtly aggressive attacks serve no-one.

The cargo was then transported to Mactan, care of Mr Zokas. Unfortunately, I appear to have since misplaced the actual receipt, yet I trust that Mr Zokas will have transferred the fuel to the Corporate Calamity by the time you read this, where it can hopefully be inspected at your discretion.


Concerning ship hull panels:

On this front, the matters were appreciably peaceful. Lest I forget, my hat is off to Mr Zokas for his invaluable assistance. During our routine inquiry into the Magellan Trade Lane traffic, we have intercepted an IMG Atlas overstuffed with the cargo we were after. This being the IMG, cargo piracy was simply not a viable option, so after a brief, private deliberation we decided to simply purchase half of the cargo in question.

The price suggested by the trader - three thousand credits per tonne - has been adjusted by Mr Zokas to a more fitting figure, resulting in its reduction by a third, thus satisfying all concerned parties. While Mr Zokas absconded to Mactan to return for the cargo in a vessel more fit for the purpose, I escorted the trader to Freeport 4, where the deal was sealed.


I remain, as always, your most humble and obedient servant,
Eduardo de Valfierno.
