    Catian military officials are said to growing concerned as the conflict with Arakhari pirates escalates in the Abaren and Matar systems. Fighting that began as isolated skirmishes has grown into full-scale battles involving dozens of spacecraft, with the Arakhari rapidly eroding Catian military superiority with relentless hit and run attacks that have left two dozen Catian ships and more than three times as many fighters destroyed, missing or disabled. Although Catian warships responded to the capture of their primary docking facilities by successfully disabling an Arakhari outpost in the Matar system, the loss of local shipyards to Arakhari landing parties have left Catian forces in an increasingly precarious position. Nevertheless, Catian leaders have vowed to defend their claim to the systems 'whatever the cost' and both sides are said to be rushing reinforcements to the region. In the Tudran system, fighting has moved to the surface of the colony world of Pysny after several clashes with the Purrsian fleet forced the Tatrean fleet to withdraw. Purrsian ships have imposed a strict blockade on the planet, turning away LT&S ships seeking to trade at local markets as their ground forces ready an offensive against the colonial garrison. Tatrean forces, meanwhile, are said to have dug in the cities, although a tide of refugees fleeing the Purrsian advance is believed to be disrupting their defensive preparations. Arakhari mercenaries are also said to be present on the planet, although reports of looting, extrajudicial killings and atrocities against Tatrean civilians have been vehemently denied by NSS representatives. In business news, tensions are rising between ONI and LT&S over conflicting claims to mineral, colony and trade rights in a number of systems. ONI directors are said to be seething following LT&S' decision to build new docking facilities in the Eidera system, a move that analysts say is the first step to establishing a visible LT&S presence in the area. This was followed by an unsuccessful attempt by ONI to colonize the Mizar system, only to discover that LT&S had already established its own colony on the system's only habitable planet. Although ONI spokespersons have refused to publicly comment on the dispute, rumours are spreading that investors are growing concerned over the loss of market share in the face of increasing LT&S competition.

    Catia Laws & Announcements

    Conflict With The Children? After a recent announcement by The Children stating that they would be giving assistance to the current rebels in the Lyrae and Hydrae systems tensions between the two factions are at an all time high. Many believe this to be a clear act of aggression and demand the Council take appropriate actions to deal with the threat. So far the Council has made no public statement on the matter however Eris made a short statement earlier today. "Although I do not understand why The Children have taken this stance with us given that we have never made any act of aggression against them I do know that we must not allow such a thing without consequence. If The Children wish to back the rebels that now plague us and apparently finance the very pirates we are at war with then we shall see them as the hostile force they so wish to be seen as." After the short statement Eris took several questions, the first being if Catia would formally declare open hostilities between the two factions. Eris said that war may be too extreme, however it is not off the table depending on how things progress. Eris did state however that any ship belonging to The Children entering Catian space will be seen as a clear act of aggression and declaration of war by The Children and Catia and her allies will defend themselves. Arakhari War Update Fierce fighting in the Matar and Abaran systems between Catian and Arakhari military vessels continue with reports of a major victory in the Matar system and almost complete loss of control of the Abaran system. The conflict is expected to last quite a while longer and slowly shift focus from the Matar system to the Abaran system soon. Along with this news reports of three major rebellions have come in, normally rebellions of this nature would not be a real concern for the Catian military however it is now directly impacting military production and forcing the Catian military to divert much needed resources from the Arakhari front to deal with the rebels. Dealing With The Corporations @Rnar @Tom Swift Until today Catia has allowed corporations to build and maintain franchises in most of it's systems without many restrictions or oversight, this stops today. Following recent events at home and abroad ONI and LT&S are hereby ordered to cease all activity within Catian space. The following must be done within the given time limit: 1. Withdraw all space and ground based units and personnel from Catian space (This must be done within 4 turns, if you need more time, contact a representative) 2. Cease all production (This must be done immediately) 3. Make preparations for a possible shutdown of all corporate franchises within Catian space If these actions are not taken within the given time without a valid reason Catia will view it as an act of aggression and deal with things accordingly.

    The Catian empire has continued its slide into chaos this week, with several of its colonies declaring independence in the wake of a crippling recession brought on by the ongoing conflict in the Abaran and Matar systems. The rebel leadership has cited unchecked slave raids by Arakhari pirates, economic mismanagement and general governmental incompetence as justifications for the colonial revolts, while Catian authorities have denounced the rebels as traitors and vowed to reassert control over the rebellious planets. The spreading disorder in Catian space has also drawn condemnation from the Children, who have openly admitted to funding Arakahri piracy in the region and have pledged their support for the breakaway colonies in their bid for independence. Meanwhile, the see-saw battle for control of Catia's eastern systems continues, with losses reported on both sides as Arakhari and Catian spacecraft clash in the skies above dozens of planets. In the western galactic rim, observers have expressed confusion regarding reports of fighting between Lamian and Vermintide forces in the Tallus system. Humantarian agencies that rushed to the system following rumours of a battle in orbit of the former Vermintide colony world of Patkány are reportedly baffled by the absence of any signs of fighting on the planet. Representatives of the Purrsian aid agency 'Felines without Borders' have announced that the skies above Patkány are completely clear, despite claims from Vermintide diplomats that over 40 ships were destroyed there a few days earlier. Reports from the surface have only added to the mystery, with witnesses alleging that there are no sign of Lamian forces on the planet and no evidence of damage to colonial infrastructure from energy weapons, explosives or orbital bombardment. Patkány's citizens have expressed confusion at the arrival of intergalactic aid organizations, while local hospitals deny having admitted any casualties from the supposed battle. In the face of mounting allegations of a hoax, Lamian officials have continued to insist that a great victory took place in the Tallus system, citing Vermintide's admission of defeat as evidence that Lamia's forces prevailed. Criticism of Lamia has intensified, however, as reports of fighting at Patkány has diverted humanitarian aid from the Tudran system, where Purrsian forces have seized control of the Tatrean colony world of Pysny following weeks of brutal combat that have left an estimated 20 million dead and millions more injured, missing or displaced in the fighting.

    Worried Jellyfish taking action

    Declaration from the Children: With the inability of the Cat-Barbarians, bordering to the high Civilisation that is our aqueous realm, to pacify their space and keep it clean from pirate activity, our Chancellor decided to take action and send help to the poor people that suffer both from being cats and from the incompetence of their government. As our scientists for the moment dont see any possibilty to cure them from their suffering, financial and technical support for the independent colonies in system 15 and 16 have been approved by the parliament. On an unrelated note the children are happy to announce that the relationship between Jellyfish and Liazards it as a all time high with several hundreds of billion galactic credits of civil aid transfered over the last months.

    Cutting Down the Vermin to Size

    In light of the recent trespasses and intrusion by the Vermintide's navy into the Tallus system, despite recent diplomatic overtures to rectify the situation, and regarding the Vermintide's terrorital claims to the Tallus system, the Lamian Collective has chosen to act. With a special session of the Lamian Parliament and following unanimous approval by both Parliament and the Communes on Lamia, Phokis, Thessal and Aytolia, the Lamian Collective hereby severs all ties with Vermintide, stating that a state of war exists between the two galactic nations. A small task force of the Lamian navy has been sent north to the Tallus system. While there were proposals by the Senate and Communes to send more ships and assemble them for a jump into Tallus, opposition by her Majesty Syrusa the IX as well as a majority of both Parliament and Communes successfully vetoed the proposal.
