Eranin vs Federation Skirmishes Intensify.
 
Commanders are getting heavily involved in the growing conflict between Eranin and the Federation over Eranin’s 30th Anniversary of Independence.
 
Almost as many missions were flown in support of each side in the past 24 hours as in the whole of the weekend since Eranin’s 30th anniversary. It is a similar story with Faulcon deLacy's continued incredible 50%-off deal continuing to take significant hauling capacity out of the systems and replacing it with the highly combat capable Cobra.

Supporters of the beleaguered Eranin government are running illicit Eranian and Wyrd celebratory liquor to Federal starports – Commander Kudlmudl’s Sidewinder is the highest non-anonymous Commander with 17 liquor runs totalling 82 canisters.  [LG] Khan has been putting his capacious Lakon Type 9 to good use in Eranin’s service with 3,671 canisters of liquor illicitly shipped over the course of 12 trade runs.
 
There is also a healthy black market weapons trade in support of the Federation.
 
Commander Neon Raven is currently 'most wanted' at Azeban City (Eranin, Independent), and Commander BlueFalcon is 'most wanted' at Chango Dock (i Boötis, Federal). Each have over 450 kills to their name.
 
GalNet data feeds indicate that some Commanders are taking advantage of the growing confusion to indulge in indiscriminate slaughter – Commanders Germaniac and Pheyes are both wanted for significant numbers of kills in the i Boötis system, but are also towards the top of the table of most bounties collected in the same system.

Freeport Extortion Blockade.

Commander ZaphodBeeble has emerged as the public face of ‘Freeport Tax and Protection Services’.  Freeport is in the anarchic LP 98-132 system, and ZaphodBeeble and friends are operating what at first glance appears to be a straightforward protection racket.
 
Normally we would simply expect nature to take its course with such behavior, however with current levels of paranoia sweeping the systems we have to wonder whether there is some wider strategy at play.  Will the erstwhile extortionists / enterprising entrepreneurs ultimately turn out to be yet another machination in the power play that is unfolding before our eyes?
FdL Cobra Price - Latest.
 
We are working our data sources hard in order to bring you behind the scenes information on that spectacular Faulcon deLacy price deal which is throwing fuel on the fire of the Eranin / Federation tensions by militarizing both sides.
 
Who stands to gain from the Federation and a member of the Independent Alliance being embroiled in a struggle?
 
The Empire’s well known Senator Denton Patreus visited our local area of space some months ago, and is known to have wined-and-dined key Eranin dignitaries onboard his sumptuous travelling embassy.
 
Senator Patreus, you will recall, is a popular figure who travels the galaxy with his substantial entourage in a giant white Imperial Cruiser, ‘maintaining good relations’ with numerous independent governments throughout human space.

One of our correspondents managed to grab a word with him yesterday as he hosted a banquet back in Imperial space, and asked him if he had any involvement:

I visit dozens of systems each month. I have no idea what they are planning, but the notion that a Senator of the Empire would lower himself to dabble in local business like this is preposterous.

he said, and added

The entry requirements for a system to join our wonderful Imperial fold are pretty high, and what looks like a civil war is hardly going to help their case.

Our correspondent was ushered out of the banquet shortly afterwards.
