House Hermes is giving advanced warning of a classified plan we have to establish a secret base in the Rox system, given this nebulae is opaque to most scanners. This will allow us, with a construction ship, to build a storage facility and then troops and fighters, right under the noses of our enemies!

A new construction ship will be built in Egoria very shortly. First task will be to escort it into the nebulae where it can start work as per above.

I would ask that CEO Prophet and SL Khizlek keep this in mind and assist where possible in ensuring that sufficent ships are available in the next 3 months for this escort duty. CEO Ishuii of Executive Operations may be required to assist as well. To this end we are shortly about to construct another ship for him.

Any thoughts on this matter should be entered here. HHS Launcher, our only carrier may be used for this operation, but this would require another ship to take its place on w/p Patrol Duty.

It would be appreciated if you used secure channels at all times, regarding this matter.

SL Alikiwi, Worric VI

A bold move. However, you should know that Dragonstar Defense will not compromise warp point defense for this mission. Our goal in this region is protection of Darkstar/Hermes territory, not advancing the war effort.

A review of Dragonstar assets may find ships available for escort duty. But I am under no obligation to provide them. Though I am sure we can come to some sort of an arrangement.

Ar, I see the almighty profit ticking over somewhere Smile But w/p defense must stand as is, and we currently have an interloper in Worric heading for Fizbon!

As for Rox, a construction ship will be built shortly, and will be followed by an assault ship for CEO Ishii (if he still exists!). This may be used as an escort along with his other ship, though I have not heard from him in some time.

As the plans full into place, I will advise accordingly.

It may seem cold, but those profits keep my company running. I tried the charitable route, helping out in the hopes others might return the favor and sign contracts to keep my business afloat. It didn't work.

I will gladly assist you in the Rox operation. But I must ask for some incentive. Funds during the operation? New warships?

As for the Worric intruder, I am ordering the Achilles and Bowshaft after it. Hopefully the enemy will stop when it crosses over into Fizbon, and we can catch it there. If not, Dragonstar will respond based on its course.

Do not worry, merely my strange sense of humour. Profit allows us to expand and provide extra ships for both ourselves and companies like yourself.

I note a total lack of communication from Executive Operations, and they have not replied to our message. You may yet find yourself with an extra ship or too! Smile

I have made efforts to move help into this region/front, though most of them will take a long time coming, and are more in the realm of medium-long term plans.

The closest support that I will be able to provide is a SYS from Egoria II, and will be built in ~9 months - a SYF (Space Yard Facility) built there, followed by the SYS. It will take another 3-4 months to move into Rox, giving 3-4 months of fast building in Rox.

Another SYS is on the move from Dornot, and will take 1.3 years to reach Egoria-Kennelworth warp point. The only good news about that length of time is that it will have ~1.2 years of resources saved (1.5-1.6 in Rox), and thus will be able to run a large, rapid construction programme in Rox.

Other support elements will be moving into Egoria, including a repair/supply vessel from Dornot (1.2 years), a repair/supply and supply vessel from Salaph (1.4 years) and a slower repair vessel also from Salaph (1.7 years).

I would be willing to chip in some spare resources, provided the key member in this initiative, Alwiki, takes the majority of the burden. I can also lend my collection of supply and repair vessels to your fleet.

A few other things we need to consider - Cargo and Escort Length.

1) Cargo: How much spare cargo space is planned to be built in Rox and where will you get the items to place in storage?

I've made a short list of systems would be good construction sites, unless everyone feels comfortable with Egoria/Fizbon construction. All travel time estimates are based on speed 5 vessels.

Lirul - As alway a potentially cheap way to supply the area. I have a cargo ship that will be able to carry cargo from Lirketh in 6 months or so. 1.6 years travel to the middle of Rox at speed 5. I could also order another cargo ship to be built there and ship out cargo (and only charge a portion of the maintenance fee), provided others are willing to pay for said cargo.

Remnorak - If the agricultural planet was put to full use we would have 4.8 years of fast build. 1.1 years to travel.

Yemil - Yemil IXa cannot hold any facilities, so it would be perfect to use up spare construction, with it's 4.8 years of fast build. Takes only 6-7 months to reach mid-Rox.

Xtreme - Only 8 months travel, and holds many planets.

Astral - In a safe-ish area. 1.2 years of travel.

Salaph and Sillintia won't much good, as the long travel time (1.4-1.7 years) would mean it's better suited to Mveloem operation (only one year), apart from the already built vessels being sent there.

Yullado/Maverick will most likely be busy with the south-western threats. Same goes for Worric.

2) Escort: How far will escorts stay with the construction fleet? Would there be a permanent station around the platforms?

We could tie cargo capacity and defense in one package by developing a carrier platform (removing the armour and 3 cargo components can allow a Fighter Bay V). That could free up some fleet resources that would otherwise have to stay to protect the complex.

Thats certainly a considerable amount of information. I will look into this in more detail shortly. Its not an urgent matter but building up forces there will be a gradual process whilst the other regions are being supported and made more secure.

Firstly any base in Rox doesn't need protection I am not aware of any technology that can ever scan the system. Therefore building bases that can launch fighters would be pointless.

As for capacity, off the top of my head (*checking, yep its there*) I'd say if I could build up to 1000kt that would be great. With a previous suggestion elsewhere, I'd probably build a couple of repair slips as well. I might have to enlist some help, possibly from the navy to escort my construction ship as it will take 2 months to get thru Kennelworth.

More as I research this situation, but as you know I'm on my way to Worric VII to lead the liberation of that planet.

A larger base obtained by base construction will help. Thanks to Senator Kotau this will soon be a reality.

I think that would be a thanks to senator Combat Wombat since I donated the most.

Hm, well I wasn't counting, but the main point is its getting done and it will indeed help this and all other operations. I think, thanks to everyone is in order.

We have discovered yet another nebulae in Rizzil. The construction ship is heading there now as we speak. Our scout is about to break through the NW w/p of Rizzil.

I may place the construction ship at position 6, 3 and build a commerce port followed by fighters first followed by troops. I suspect fighters may be required much more at first.

Plans are also underway for a raiding squadron. More as these plans get developed.

A repair slip in Rox should also be considered, for the unknown system next to it.

An excellent idea, I was just waiting for you to think of it! Laughing
