With "Bridging the gap" initiative over which added a new advanced multicanon into the game, Frontier announced the next initiative called "The Enclave"…

Interstellar Initiative are a series of in-game events and narratives that utilise Elite's existing in-game systems, such as Community Goals and Scenarios, to provide narratives that, with the influence of Commanders, can have lasting effects on the galaxy!

With the conflicts in the Synuefe region coming to an end, Zende Partners have taken back control and delivered on their promise of developing a new form of multicanon weapons that can fit AX rounds which makes these weapons extremely useful against the ongoing fight against the Thargoids.

Zende Partners will continue their operations in the system with their megaship ferries jumping between systems on a weekly basis allowing commanders easy access to various unidentified signal sources that will include various Guardian materials and commodities.

The Enclave

Aegis Research has issued a statement amid growing concerns that meta-alloy harvests in the Pleiades Nebula have slowed dramatically. A number of sources claim that Thargoid barnacle sites have recently ceased producing materials.

The situation was addressed by Professor Alba Tesreau of Aegis Research:

“Thargoid structures remain poorly understood, so we can only theorise why the barnacles in most Pleiades systems have grown barren. Our leading hypothesis is that these sites have been over-exploited in recent years, and humanity has simply exhausted this resource.”

“What is certain is that meta-alloys are both a valuable commodity and a vital component of anti-xeno technology. It is of paramount importance that we maintain the supply of this material.”

“Therefore, Aegis Core is spearheading an initiative to identify an alternative source. We ask the galactic community to support us by providing exploration data, in the hope this leads us to undiscovered barnacle sites.”

Independent pilots who wish to participate can do so by handing in survey scans to The Oracle in the Delphi system between the 4th and the 10th of July.

  • Meta-Alloy production from Barnacle Sites (in the Pleiades) will start to dwindle, threatening the availability of Meta-Alloys. As this commodity becomes scarce, the price in which markets will pay for Meta-Alloys is bound to increase.
  • Community Goal - Aegis Research will request the service of Commanders to deliver Exploration Data to The Oracle in the Delphi system, a combined effort to locate a new source of Meta-Alloys.

The next phase will be announced after Phase 1 has ended.
