Welcome to the second segment of Culture of the ‘Verse, your portal to all things beyond mere survival! With the Catastrophe in our collective pasts, we look to the future to expand humanity’s possibilities. Last time we looked at cloning, with all of its complications, so today we’ll be focusing on the pleasant topic of artistic endeavors!

As we grow our list of potential allies, it’s important to look for those whose talents are set to grow beyond their station! Fellie Norbush may currently be a Field Technician, but her robotics work makes it clear she’s going places. We would be remiss not to help nurture that talent – and turn it towards our cause.

Greetings most loyal and beloved listeners! Welcome to the first of many segments of what is sure to be a prestigious and oft listened to review program. I, Frasier the Crane, shall be your guide in all things arms and armors, with a different tool of the terrible trade tested each tenspan. Today, I hope you shall join me on a journey of thrills to the accompaniment of the oh so pleasant sounds of blasting ordinance. For today, we review the Dissident Disincliner!

Greetings to all you crazy cresters of the CORETECHS and magnificent mesh maniacs out there! New series coming your way to inspire and illuminate, tantalize and titillate!
We’re going to spend the next couple of segments, and many more down the road, discoursing the various aspects of culture from around the ‘verse. It’s been a fair few cycles since the Catastrophe and, when we ain’t looking over our collective shoulders, wondering if there’s another, we’ve actually been living! We just didn’t know we were.
So, once a tenspan or so, we’re gonna take a breather from all that smog and drama and sit back and see where we’re at, culturally speaking!
And today, we’ll be taking a gander at cloning!

Humanity is finally moving on from the bare struggle for survival, into an era where hope can once more resurface. However, there is still much work to be done, and so we look to individuals who may prove to be key players in improving our future! Last time we focused on the righteous Captain Vollmer, a person of convictions and actions, and now we’re happy to present another candidate – the likeable android Cur8.

Today, the peddlers of Galactic Destinations have deigned to visit our most hallowed halls of Heinlein Stronghold. We of the Scientific Schismatics community, however, felt that they could no more do justice to our home amongst the stars than put together a properly constructed and syntactically correct sentence! We have, therefore, requisitioned production of this episode so that you, the humble listeners on the airwaves of the Mesh, may better understand the glorious work that is accomplished herein!

Today’s issue is a special travel advisory for those considering a visit to Sirius Jump Gate. As the entry point to an all-Freebooter system, this place makes quite the first impression. Here are some handy pointers to ensure it’s not one you remember for the wrong reasons…

Last tenspan we gave you an introduction to Sirius, but what does each station have to offer? Let’s start by zooming into Sirius’ self-proclaimed “most welcoming station”, House of Congo! Many of the locals consider it their real home, having escaped the Consortium’s Orwellian eye or Gaule’s militaristic tendencies to live somewhere they can truly be themselves. But what does that mean for the people who reside here? Let’s find out!Continue reading "Galactic Destinations: House of Congo"
The Sirius System, these cycles, is anything but a serious place! This entire quadrant, whilst once a Consortium owned research and mining-centric part of the galaxy, quickly fell to Freebooter rule in the early cycles after the Catastrophe. The word, ‘fell’ is however, perhaps, incorrect in this case as the shift in administration, and I use the term in its loosest possible sense, was very much welcomed by most of the surviving population.

These are interesting times we exist in indeed! Finally, after hundreds of cycles after a near extinction event that, to this day, has left our civilization with a galactic sized mystery and source of insecurity as a species, we are now in a place to begin asking questions. A think tank has been created and freelancers evaluated for field research.
Yet for every step forward, for every new clue uncovered, we meet resistance, even hostility. To that end, we must draw others to the cause, making allies and friends. And, if scientific protocol is to be observed, these persons of interest must be meticulously cataloged! Today it is my distinct pleasure to start the process off with the honorable Captain Vollmer.
