Alien Wars - Empire Takes Ulian System, Empire Fleet Deployed

Following the war against the Alien Alliance, Humanity's last remaining foe from this conflict has been dealt with. The Ulian Stellar Nation (USN) refused to broker peace with the Empire and so led the Empire towards the inenvitable.

The Empire Space Fleet moved into the Ulian system to support the Imperial Army, securing the strategic space lanes, taking down several defence platforms and several USN ships in the process.

With the space lanes secured, the Imperial Army was free to do its work.

Alien Wars - USN Strike In Storm System

It seems the USN have struck in the Storm system, after breaking a peace agreement with the Krells (KRL)

Early reports suggest bitter ship to ship combat has tool place in the system, with at least 1 KRL platform and 2 USN ships being destroyed on day 1.

A hastily agreed ceasefire was agreed on the day 2 and then broken again on day 3 after the USN entered the orbit of Inversion, damaging outposts and destroying a KRL colony carrying 6,000 krell colonists.

After confusion over who was command of the local USN forces, another hastily put together ceasefire has been agreed with the "USN Emergency Council". It seems for the moment the ceasefire is holding and hostilities has ceased across the Storm system.

Alien Wars - DTR Meddles In Ulian System

The DTR, under the guise of Admiral Bridge, have started to make of meddlesome overtures to intervene in the Ulian system.

Even though the Imperial Viceroy and 4 other Empire officials repeatly told Admiral Bridge to not send ships into the Ulian system, the repeated warning were ignored.

Some 11 freighters were sent by the DTR to the Ulian system and all 11 ships were destroyed, along with their crews.

What the meddlesome DTR were trying to acheive by sacrificing their ships and crews cheaply is currently under analysis by the military.

Alien Wars - Gambling Ensues Over DTR Meddling

In a somewhat bizarre twist to the DTR meddling in the Ulian system, Lazarus Dredge of the RIP announced a $50,000 wager that was taken up by Igor "Wylde Carrd" Konstantin of the DOM, at 2 to 1 odds.

This wager was eventually won by Lazarus Dredge.

It was estimated that several hundred million stellars were also wagered around the known galaxy, by both legal and illegal gambling networks, boosting revenues by up to 5% on Empire and other stock markets.

People celebrating their gambling win, not the destroying of the DTR freighters. Honest!
