Grendel Star System, home system of the planet Eridu of the Eridu Federation.
Grendel II Eridu, home planet of the Denisova. A large rock planet with an oxygen atmosphere and good conditions.
There are nine planets in the Grendel system and 3 major moons. Of those nine planets and major moons, 2 rocky planets and 2 moons are capable of supporting domed colonies.
Planets of interest for colonization of the Eridu Federation include:
Grendel III Aega - Huge rock planet with no atmosphere and unpleasant conditions. Probes have detected what appears to be ruins of an ancient civilization on the surface of this planet.
Grendel I Demeter - Huge rock planet with a methane atmosphere and unpleasant conditions. There is an abundant organic resource found on this planet.
Grendel V A Chiron - A tiny rock moon of the gas giant Gendel V. It has a methane atmosphere and mild conditions. Ideal construction conditions on the planet suggest 10% more facility space. Also rare fuel reserves on the planet could increase production of supply facilities by 100%.
Grendel VI A Minos - A tiny rock moon of the gas giant Grendel VI. It has a hydrogen atmosphere and unpleasant conditions. There are unusual geological formations which may provide a market for recreation and tourism.

2400.0 - Gaelant Helfaunt, a moderate, is elected as Central Speaker of the Eridu Federation. His first act in office is to organize Eridu in preperation for expansion into space. Eridu resource reserves are nearly to capacity and so further storage facilities are ordered for construction to double current storage capacity. A major mineral resource center is shut down to make further room for large corporate business sectors. A defensive satellite system is also put into production along with 10 dual purpose weapons platforms scattered throughout the planet.
Several major research doctrine guidelines are placed to allow for growth in certain areas that will immediatly benifit the Eridu Federation:
10% of the research pool is dedicated to cultural growth(5% in civics and 5% in education).
30% to theoretcial sciences (20% to astrophysics, 10% towards construction).
50% to applied sciences (5% for social culture, 20% to civil planning, 5% to planet utilization, 15% for medical, and 5% for applied research).
5% to defense (5% for mounts).
5% for discretionary research (5% for sensor technology).
2400.4 - As projected, climate conditions have been reduced from good to mild from the overabundant amounts of resource gathering industries.
2400.7 - Advances in planet utilization has yielded climate control technology. A construction project is ordered for a climate control facility but due to its massive world encompassing footprint several other major resource centers in agriculture and radioactive extraction are shut down.

2401.3 - Medical treatment advances allow for the construction of medical bays, and state of the art planetary medical labs and clinics.
2401.7 - The Eridu Federation commisions Eridu Global Industries to begin construction of the first orbital space yard base.
2401.9 - The EF begins construction of the first colony ship, the CS(R)-SR Grendel. It is a short range in-system vessel capable of colonizing rock planets within the Grendel system. Once completed its mission is to colonize Aega or Grendel III, a huge rock planet with no atmosphere. Probes have detected ruins of an ancient civilization on the surface of this planet. Back to top
2402.0 - Eridu Global Industries has completed contstruction of the first SS-SYB EGI Eridu Space Yards. The Eridu Federation Colonial Fleet has commisioned a FF-EX Metope exploration vessel to be built at this facility.
2402.1 - Llande Engineering has advanced technology in civil planning. Technology and construction techniques for arcology construction is now available.
2402.3 - Captain Avonte Callison takes command of the first manned space going vessel. As commander of the FF-EX Metope 1 his maiden voyage is a trial run surveying the Grendel system.
2402.4 - The EF has advanced technology in second generation astrophysics and sensors opening up new technolgoy trees and providing second generation sensing and tracking components.
The 1st CS(R)-SR Grendel is completed at the Eridu Federation Space Vessel Yards on Eridu. It begins its 1 month voyage to Grendel III.
2404.5 - Grendel III Aega is colonized by the 1st CS(R)-SR Grendel. The Bureau of Planet Colonization(BuPC) classifies the planet as a Ruins Colony due to the ruins discovered on the planet. Several weeks after colonization a scientific team has explored the ruins.
Hoping that the ruins may have been from the first great Eridu civilization of 80,000 years ago the world was stunned to discover that the ruins were of race alien to this system but dated to the same time. Within the ruins several items of technology have been determined to be some sort of Neural Computer Interface and has opened up a whole new technology branch.
The answer of what lies beyond the Grendel system warp points is apparent. In the past there were other advanced races, there is no reason not to beleive there are advanced races out there now. If the Eridu Federation is to expand, it must do so cautiously.

Habitable worlds just beyond the frontier of the Grendel system! The state corporations of the Eridu Fedetation immediatly take interest and praise Central Speaker Helfaunt for his vision. So much has been achieved during his 4 years.
2404.0 - With the recent discovery of a habitable world just beyond the frontier, Central Speaker Helfaunt has soared in the polls for reelection; however, two other candidates a fierce "Home First" canidate has made ground declaring that the EF is not yet ready for empire building. Another candidate who favors a highly aggressive expansion program has interests with several of the major state corporations clamoring for charters to the stars.
Centeral Speaker Helfaunt wins the reelection by a 10% difference of the defensive "Home First" party. Cautioned by this narrow win, Helfaunt initiates a stronger defense budget and authorizes the Eridu Federation System Patrol (EFSP) several patrol ships to be built by the Bureau of Ships and Bases (BuShips) over the next couple of months.
Llande Engineering has announced further advances in civil planning. 2nd generation arcology technology is ready for application on the current arcology on Eridu and future projects.

Quikil II is a medium methane rock planet with mild conditions that would be ideal for radioactive extraction.
A gas giant, Quikil III has also caught the attention of Bureau of Exploration and Survey (BuExSu). There are what appear to be some sort of ancient artifacts or ruins that have been detected floating in one of the many layers of gas. We do not have technology to reach the deep habitable zones of these great gas giants but BuExSu and the BuPC have requested that such technology be researched. Back to top

2407.1 - While enroute back to Eridu for resupply, the vessel FF-EX Metope 0001 commanded by captain Callison picks up a unique and very artificial energy emmision in the Veridian blackhole system. No source or solid ID is made and he is ordered to continue back to Eridu for resupply.
BuInt or the Eridu Federation Bureau of Intelligence launches an immediate campaign to try and identify this source diverting 50% of its intelligence networks towards this mysterious emissions signal.
Research Priorities are realigned for first contact doctrine guidelines.
Cultural research spending is given an additional 5% for a total of 15%.
Theoretical research spending is reduced from 30% to 10%.
Applied research spending remains the same at 50%.
Weapons research spending is boosted from 5% to 15%.
Discrectionary spending is given another 5% for a total of 10%.
2407.2 - 2 more SF-RM(M) Promitor class mineral excavation vessels are completed in the Grendel system and are assigned dense asteroid fields in the Grendel and Quickil systems.
No further activity on the mysterious emissions signal, and the buzz around the EF has started to die down.
2407.3 - Pirates have been reported disrupting commercial shipping in the Prenix system. The EFSP is responding to the situation by stationing a FF-PS Peirenes class patrol vessel in the system.
Captain Eurytus completes his survey of the Klatuu system and transits into the Hoek system. The Hoek system completes a chain of 8 sytems between the Uphada and Prenix system. This chain is quickly coined the Uphada/Prenix chain.
A recon satellite in the Eteru system catches a brief glimpse of a mysterious vessel emerging from a worm hole just before it is destroyed. Emissions signatures match that of the earlier emissions signals briefly recorded in the Veridian system in 2407.1 by captain Callison.
BuInt and the Department of Defense estimate it as being a frigate sized vessel. Calling it a Kiryelkry class frigate, they also name the mysterious race as the Xeragtok. Other than that no further information is known.
DOD is advising production of a task force for the Eridu Federation Navy to commence and prepare for a recon in force beyond the Veridian system.
2407.5 - A powerful earthquake occured on Demeter, Grendel I killing 31 million people.
Eridu finishes constructin of its 4th arcology.
DOD and BuShips finish trials of the FF-A Atethys mk I attack frigate. These capable and multi-purpose vessels are equipped with: x1 2nd generation capitol ship missile launcher, x1 2nd generation depleted uranium cannon, x1 2nd generation commercial grade DUC, x1 3rd generation point defense cannon system and 3rd generation tracking sensors and enough armor to withstand several direct strikes from our current CSM warhead technology. 4 are put in for immediate construction.
2407.6 - A 4th FF-EX Metope mk III is constructed at Demeter. She is commanded by captain Sheilo Aesa to explore beyond the Dertran system.
Pirate raids in the Dertran, Grendel, Hoek, and Prenix system deliver a substancial blow to the EF capturing 3284 mineral resources, 1780 organic resources, and 2279 radioactive resources. The EFSP is given further funding to construct more patrol vessels.
2407.7 - Gamgee III or Fontus, a medium rock oxygen with good conditions is colonized by the Spica Group. BuPC classifies the colony as a SG Corporate Core World.
Dertran I or Mirth, a large rock oxygen with mild conditions is colonized by Sola Technologies and is classified as a ST Corporate Core World.
Pirate raids continue in the Fwandrei and Bardron system.
2407.8 - The Eridu Federation Navy creates its first fleet. The 1st Recon in Force Fleet consists of 2 task forces, the first task force consists of 3 of the new FF-A Atethys mk Is. The second task force is the recon element consisting of 1 FF-EX Metope. Captain Callison is promoted to the rank of Commodore and assumes command of the fleet which is ordered to recon the Eteru system and beyond.
2407.9 - Klatuu I or Levana is colonized by Llande Engineering. Levana is classified as a LE Corporate Core World.
2 CS(R)-MR Remus are constructed in orbit of Eridu.
The first charter is given to Eridu Global Industries (EGI) choosing Chara II a medium rock oxygen planet with mild conditions.
The second charter is given to Roma Financial Conglomerate (RFC) to colonize Hoek II a small rock oxygen planet with good conditions.
This completes the first expansion wave of the Eridu Federation.
2408.0 - The Eridu Federation has been balancing back and forth from periods of growth to periods of significant loss. As of recently mineral resource stockpiles have depleted below 100,000 or 50% of what they were when we first left for the stars. An unknown and mysterious race has made its presence known and is believed to be lurking just outside the north eastern frontier of known space. Almost monthly, the news networks report of pirate raids in both the frontier systems and even in our more densely populated inner systems. The Federation is stretched thin and the state corporations and citizens are asking for change. The election brings about those changes as Helfaunt loses out to a "Home First" defensive canidate named Scotia Achlys.
As Central Speaker Achlys is sworn in he makes several bold statements declaring that our expansion into the frontiers is over, instead we will get the Federation in order. Our frontier will be secured, our bleeding resources will be stopped and replenished and systems withing our Federation will grow so that we may prosper. Once our resource deficit is stopped and recovered charters will only be given to state corporations that have planets in their system of control that will directly impact Federation prosperity and growth.
Within days of Central Speaker Achlys's speach, another first contact event happens in the Klatuu system. The vessel lingers about on the worm hole from which it emerged for several days and shows no signs of hostility. The colonists of Levana, Klatuu I send a peaceful message to the vessel.
To further complicate matters for the Federation, reports of pirate raids in the Dertran, Klatuu, and Hoek system rob the Federation coffers of 2832 mineral resources, 2204 organic resources, and 2139 radioactive resources. The pirates are getting bold and Achlys shoves through several production orders for several more FF-PS Peirenes, one for each system, and several more to patrol the commercial lanes.
2408.1 - The alien vessel that emerged in the Klatuu system has begun moving towards the Dertran worm hole. Upon transit in the Dertran system it encounterd one of our recon satellites and destroyed it immediately.
Shortly after a message from the Abbidon Enclave is received and within days scientist of the BuInt translate it as a proposal for a non intercourse agreeement asking for colonization rights in eachothers systems. The EF responds to their treaty revising it to a non aggression in neutral space.
2408.2 - The Department of Planetary Developement or DPD annouce that conditions on Eridu have plummeted significantly, conditions have gone from mild to unpleasent over the last 8 years. Many blame it on the arcologies, others on the massive mineral mining sectors that have opened up because of the arcologies. Funding for further research to address planetary conditions is requested.
2408.3 - A message from the enigmatic Abbidon Enclave is returned to the Federation. They accept our terms of the non intercourse treaty, non aggression in neutral space. The BuInt has also discovered more of this race. They are beings that have evovled on a gas giant and as far as a government or society, anarchy would be the best description. The Bureau of Civics and Culture also note that despite their completely random society and culture they have a very rich and deep culture, one that has captivated many of our citizens on the frontier. In just 3 months time we have gone from an above average culture rating to a below average culture rating. BuInt suggests caution with this race.
The Federation proposes a message to open trade negotiations with the Abbidon. Back to top
The Federation has been experiencing record deficit in mineral resource spending. The last 4 months the EF has been experiencing an average of -10,000 a month on minerals, reserves are down to 40,000. The BuPS or Bureau of Planetary Resources is demanding that all colonies up their mineral production if at all possible and to update to 2nd generation mineral extraction technology.
2408.5 - The Abbidon Enclave refuse our request for trade negotiations. Several days later the Abbidon attack captain Aesa's exploration vessel in the Dertran system and disable it. The Dertran system has been colonized by our people years ago and is clearly Federation Space. A message has been sent to the Abbidon Enclave to remove all vessels from our space immediatly or we will be forced to take action.
2408.6 - Pirate raids in the Gamgee and Fwadnrei system have made the news again.
2408.7 - The DOD has announced achievements in 2nd generation military science. Electronic defense systems and the idea of ship capture have opened up.
Pirates are still a problem with raids in the Klatuu, Gamgee, and even more daring attempts within Grendel itself.
The Abbidon reply to our demand that they remove their ships from our space, stating vaguely that they are securing the system from an invasion? Achlys sends one more message demanding that the Abbidon remove all vessels from from EF space.
2408.8 - One of our SF-SL Phasis class satellite layers, enroute to shore up the worm hole that is believed to be the entry point into Abbidon space, is attacked and destroyed by the Abbidon in the Klatuu system by a Mattock class Abbidon frigate. Achlys fires off a fierce message to the Abbidon Enclave stating that a state of war now exists between the Eridu Federation and Abbidon Enclave.
Achlys calls back Commodore Callison who is exploring the systems beyond the Veridian black hole system to immediatly return to EF occupied space and hunt down any Abbidon vessels within EF space and bolster defenese of the Klatuu system.
Pirates are still a problem in the Hoek and Bardron systems, although their raids have yielded less and less of our valuable resources.
The EF is starting to see significant growth again in mineral resouce accumulation. Achlys has released funding for two more Remus class colonization ships to bolster state corporation holdings that will directly impact mineral aquistion in systems considered well defended.
2408.9 - Pirate raids continue in Fwandrei and Prenix, although resource loss is notable, the EFSP requests several more FF-SP Peirenes to assist in patrols and hunting down Abbidon vessels in EF space.
2409.0 - Our first victory against the Abbidon. An Abbidon Dekar class frigate was badly damaged as it passed through the Dertran/Uphada worm hole. A dense defensive satellite system there have caused significant damage to the vessel and it was reported to be limping along, disarmed in the Uphada system. DOD is gunning for a chance to capture this vessel as they work out trials on successful ship boarding technology on being researched by Marduk Defense Systems on Mefitis.
A rescue operation in the Dertran system to rescue the crew of captain Aesa's disabled exploration vessel ends in failure. An Abbidon Mattock class frigate reaches captain Aesa and her vessel first and completely destroy the vessel. All hands are lost.
The BuPC releases its latest map of Eridu Federation controlled space and systems explored.
2409.1 - The Abbidon Enclave ask for a ceasefire treaty specifically stating non aggression in all systems. Achlys responds to the Abbidon that they must make retribution payments for our losses in lives and and equipment. If they want a ceasefire they must accept a 5% tarrif.
The EFAF or Eridu Federation Aerospace Force developes the I-1 Janus mk I light interceptor fighter. A squadron is ordered for immediate construction on Levana, Klatuu I and another squadron for Mirth, Dertran I.
2409.2 - Hoek I or Pax is colonized by the Roma Financial Conglomerate. The BuPC list this colony as a a RFC Corporate Core World.
A first contact event occurs. A message is recieved and translated from a race called the Lhathichu Collective. The message is received by multiple systems within the Federation and no positive id on the origins of the message is known other than possibly originating beyond the realm of the Abbidon. The Lhathichu offer a non aggression pact with specifics in non aggression in all systems, the Lhathichu share their system maps, and that they will provide the EF with 5% of thier resources in the form of a tarrif. They claim that they have been monitoring our federation for some time and see us as a valuable alley in the years to come.
2409.3 - The Abbidon Enclave accept our terms of ceasefire. A non aggression treaty in all systems and a 5% resource tarrif from the Abbidon Enclave is now in effect.
The Lhathichu Collective transmit a galactic map of approximate star locations and worm hole links; however, no specific details of individual systems is given. Resources are also transported into our system from the Lhathichu. We have made direct contact with these beings called Agaru during the tranfers. They are humanoid and evovled on a methane atmosphere planet and have a hive society. No details of their origin or frontier is given. The BuInt is able to provide more information.
The EF has recieved roughly 7000 in mineral resources, 3000 in organic resources, and 2500 in radioactive resources from tarrifs from the Abbidon and Lhathichu.
Polias, Prenix I has completed construction of a massive planetary space yard facility. Tarus Shipping now has the ability to produce its own space going vessels.
BuInt has diverted some of its intelligence gathering assets to conduct empire wide espionage on the Abbidon Enclave and Lhathichu Collective. 15% of the EF's total 3230 intelligence assets is diverted to the Abbidon and 15% to the Lhathichu. The BuInt is still directing 15% to ship and fleet espionage towards the Xeragtok Hive.
The director of BuInt states that the Abbidon and Lhathichu have about 3400 intelligence assets that have infiltrated the Federation and are conducting espionage on the EF. The BuInt needs further funding to increase our intelligence and counter intelligence assets. Back to top
2409.4 - Chara II Delphinus is colonized by the EGI. BuPC classifies the planet as an EGI Core Corporate World.
Marduk Defense Systems has finished research and trials on Ship Capture Technology. This technology is passed on to DOD and BuShips which add the component to the new FF-B Acmon prototype. After several weeks of simulation and a few actual space trials the DOD gives their approval and orders 3 for immediate production for the EFN.
Achlys also wants a force-in-readiness strike force for planetary, base, and ship borne operations within the Eridu Federation. These forces will also train to be the intitial strike force for offensive campaigns oustide of Federation space. The Eridu Federation Colonial Marines or EFCM is formed and a training facility is established on Grendel III Aega. A division of Lt. CM '09 will be fully formed in 3 months.
2409.5 - Pirate raids in the Dertran and Arkanoid system make the news.
A CS(R)M-MR Remus is constructed on Eridu. The EF assumes the charter to colonize Arkanoid II, a huge rock plantet with a carbon dioxide atmoshphere and mild conditions. The EF is assuming this charter on grounds that this system is deemed as a strategic system being the only system allowing direct access into the inner core worlds from the south. This system will be a major base of both military and commercial tradiing operations for the EF.
2409.6 - Level 2 light hull construction is advanced. BuShips is asked to design an amored assault ship for the EFCM. The SF-AAS Kronos mk I is the design that best fits the EFCM mission of a heavily armored and armed ship capable of landing a small force of colonial marines under heavy opposition.
2409.7 - A replacement of the 4th EF-EX Metope mk III lost to the Abbidon is constructed. Command is given to captain Paletis Argo and his orders are to explore north beyond the Dertran system.
A CS(R)-MR Remus is constructed and the charter is given to the Spica Group. Probes and planetary surveys indicate that Gamgee I has ruins of an ancient race on the surface, Achlys wants these ruins investigated hoping to bring advanced technology to the Federation and to find answers of what happened 80,000 years ago and if that threat is still out there.
Captain Stheno transits into the Arakkis system and discovers a race known as the Norak. He moves his vessel to a nearby asteroid field to make further observations and then hails the Norak with a peaceful message.
2409.8 - The newly discovered Norak hail captain Stheno in the Arakiss system. They offer an immediate non-aggression treaty in all systems. Stheno has been authorized to accept. The Norak are also in contact with a race called the Jraenar. They too offer a similar treaty as the Norak but also wish to open up trade negotiations.
The Abbidon offer a change to our current treaty asking to remove the 5% resource tarrif for a map exchange and to be able to share medical facilities. Achlys refuses these changes for now.
BuInt has been busy collecting information on the Norak Continuim. They are an amphibous race that have evolved on a rock oxygen planet. Initial analysis indicate that they are a highly religous race.
2409.9 - Studies in maintenance routines has yielded improvements to reduce ship, facility, and unit maintenance cost by about 2%.
Our studies in planet utilization have also produced atmospheric modification plants. These massive facilities can convert the atmosphere of most planets into a breathable atmosphere in a relatively short time, about 7 years.
To deal with a potential trade war our trade economic reseach teams have also come up with a plan to produce cheap trade goods and establish direct shipping routes.
Chara II Delphinus finished construction of a space port.
A CS(R)-MR is constructed in orbit of Eridu. The charter goes to Sola Technologies to set up a mineral mining facility on Dertran III. Dertran III is a large rock planet with a hydrogen atmosphere and unpleasant conditions. Surveys indicate a large amount of mineral and radioactive resources on the planet, vital for the EF.
BuInt has revealed further information on the Jraenar Imperium. They ara reptillian race that have evolved on a rock hydrogen planet. The Jraenar are an aggressive warrier society. The BuInt were unable to disclose any information on where any of their colonies might be, but it is beleived to be somewhere along the Norak frontier.

2401.1 - 2nd Generation fighter technology is available. The EF now has the abilty to design and construct massive space carriers.
3rd generation DUC technology is also researched along with 2nd generation resupply technology.
Captain Stheno explores the Yabdul system, a system within Norak occupied space.
2401.2 - Bardron I Tecmessa has had its conditions go from mild to unpleasant due to pollution.
Captain Argo enters the Aldan system, Abbidon held space.
2401.3 - A massive 450kt SF-SL/ML Mulac class satellite and mine layer is constructed. It is tasked with securing the Arkanoid/Draconis worm hole in the southern EF Frontier.
The EF suggests a 5% trade pact with the Norak.
2401.4 - Arkanoid II Remus is colonized by the EF as a military installation.
2401.5 - Dertran III Scotus is colonized by Sola Technologies as a mineral and refining mining colony.
Dertran I Mirth and Prenix I Polias both experience pollution as their planetary conditions go from mild to unpleasant. The Department of Planetary Developement or (DPD) is suggesting that further research funding be diverted into planetary utilization and planetary pollution programs to counter the pollution effects on our highly industrious corporate worlds.
The EF is experiencing a trade deficit with its exports and imports in minerals. We are exporting 1262 in minerals but exporting 4101 a month in mineral resources.
The Norak accept our Trade Pact. We are now working to increase trade with them to 5% and continue our non aggression in all systems.

2401.6 - Gamgee I Acheron is colonized by the Spica Group as a ruins world colony. After several weeks of investigation of the various ruins the Bureau of Exploration and Survey and science teams of the Spica Group have established that this world came to end at roughly the same time the first civilization of Eridu was wiped out 80,000 years ago. The population of this planet was a highly civilized race and we have learned the key to several democratic programs such as a Social Control Spending Act, a Corps of Engineers Control Spending Act, and an Education Control Spending Act.
Gamgee III Fontus experiences a change of planetary conditions going from mild to unpleasant.

A CS(R)-MR Remus is constructed. The charter goes to Marduk Defense Systems to establish a refining colony on Quikil II.
Trade deficit of roughly 1:2.2. The EF is exporting 2101/556/565 in resources and importing 4692/1278/1276.
The Jraenar accept the changes to a Mutual Assistance Treaty. The EF and Jraenar have will have 15% trade, non aggression in all systems, sharing technology that is older than 4 generations, the Jranear share system maps and medical care. Both empires also share minefield codes.
The MDS are reducing some of their facilities on Quikil I Mefitis. They are beginning construction on the first massive 2000kt Atmospheric Modification Plant.
2401.8 - The EF Department of Health have released that a deadly level I plague has broken out on Dertan III Scotus and Gamgee I Acheron. Both of these colonies are new with small isolated population densities. 2 SF-HERS Iris class hospital and epidemic response ships are dispatched to give aid to the colonies.
Chara II Delphinus has its planetary conditions change from mild to unpleasant due to pollution.
Trade deficit of roughly 1:1.8. The EF is exporting 4423/1195/119 in resources and importing 7867/2185/2025.
The Lhathichu Collective offer to update the Non Aggression Pact to a Mutual Aid Agreement. It states a 10% to trade, non aggression in all systems. The Lhathichu will share system maps and their communication channels. Achlys accepts this proposal.
