Galactic Destinations: Ross 154 Jump Gate

As the jumpgate pathways are being realigned and brought back into the galactic network, we are able to access further information on the stations of Ross 154. As always, the entry-point into the system is the jumpgate and, with the mesh links reestablished and lines of communication now open, we can bring you some information about it!

Galactic Destinations: Ross 154

If humanity were a network, till very recently, it has been a fractured one. Slowly, system by system, station by station, we began to find each other again, to reconnect the nodes. After so much time apart, it was with great joy that we spoke again, heard each other’s voices. However, after so much time apart, some of us had learnt to speak a little differently.

We have recently reestablished contact with Ross 154, a distant system whose jumpgate is soon to be accessible once more. It is the perfect example of how evolution, be it social or otherwise, works in the vacuum of separation.

Person of Interest: Jelena Starkiss

During the darkest of times, while a candle may provide light that is both pure and illuminating, a blaster bolt often shines brighter and cuts right to the heart of the matter. Where law protects, guides, and nurtures, ofttimes a dollop of chaos can expedite matters and inspire greatness of solution! Both sentiments can be attributed to  Captain Jelena Starkiss.

The Crane’s Critique: Mantis Class Private Cruiser

How blessings brighten as they take their flight.
Edward Young

How pertinent a sentence, allegedly uttered by a poet of ancient Terran origin, that applies aptly to the recent discovery of an entire fleet of sleek and steady vessels to ferry us through the Black. The Mantis Class Private Cruiser, a ship I have had the distinct pleasure of being allowed to fly. Tune in, loyal followers, for my enlightening review!

Wishing you Another Festive Emberfest!

A new Emberfest is upon us! The air glitters with hundreds of holo-embers and, perhaps, just a dash more hope than before. It seems like an age since the previous Emberfest so long ago. The time between has been unprecedented, with most of us orbiting each other and our loved ones at a far distance, fighting to forge through the challenges we all face.

So, as the holidays dock into our port like an interstellar cruiser transporting hope and cheer, we want to wish you all our love and appreciation, our sincerest hopes for an amazing, gorgeous, and above all healthy 2021… and, maybe, just a little cheesy, sci-fi holiday poetry!

Culture of the ‘Verse: Cloning

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!
