French Arm
Entrex, a Berkut-class destroyer operating in the French Arm as part of the WatchDog service in an undisclosed system has reported the presence of a new Kafer capital ship class, based on sensor readings taken during a sixteen hour pursuit by the Kafer vessel to the stutterwarp gradient.
Chinese Arm
Piracy levels have increased on the Latin Finger following the seizure and subsequent scuttling of two civilian merchants by the Illustrious Father of the Red Sun pirate cartel. SAM-N is investigating these latest attacks.

Core
All units attached to Earth (Sol) Orbital Quarantine Command (OQC) are advised that operational readiness levels have been increased following the attempt of the civilian-registred vessel Dark Voyager to drop dead gliders onto the planet in violation of OQC protocols for decontamination. The Dark Voyager was hailed by the IMS vessel Berkut in a routine OQC boarding & search. The vessel failed to come to an all stop and released several dead gliders before attempting to escape. The vessel was subsequently neutralized by the Berkut under the terms of OQC mandate. The nature of the dead glider cargo has not been released and all dead gliders were destroyed by fighters from the IMS SF 1st Interceptor Wing, attached to OQC.
French Arm
Subsequent analysis of data gathered by the Entrex on the new Kafer ship indicates that it is in the 8,000 ton range with an estimated warp efficiency of 3.5. Reports of armament have not yet been released.
Chinese Arm

08 February

Core
The Industrial Espionage Section of ISS has issued a blanket advisory to all personnel using the ECREM security protocol on the global data net.

All facility security forces are to remain on high alert until the situation has been diffused.
French Arm
All Foxx Industries vessel captains are reminded to upload the latest IFF codes prior to leaving port. Numerous non-inhabited systems have been sowed with Sentinel stations which will attack if an unknown or no IFF code is transmitted.
Chinese Arm
SAM-N have confirmed that the Shenyang-class freighter destroyed by Manchurian vessels was used as a 'carry' vessel by the Illustrious Father of the Red Sun pirate cartel. Several 'catch' vessels are still being sought and the SAM-N piracy warning level remains high in the Latin Finger.
American Arm
All personal on customs duties in the Arm are advised to be on the look-out for a shipment of DNAMs (DNA Modifiers) stolen from a government medical facility on King (DM+2 3312). Provolution is suspected in the theft.

Core
Satellite imagery over Indonesia has detected an unknown staging base and landing strip for interface capable craft in the interior of the island of Borneo.
French Arm
Further analysis of the data accumulated by the Entrex suggests that several Kafer vessels may be operating as merchant raiders throughout the Arm. Identified as the Gamma-class, details on these vessels are very limited.
Chinese Arm
Several stutterwarp traces in the Tau Ceti system indicate travel to the Quigyuan system. As this is an uninhabited system, it is suspected that the Illustrious Father of the Red Sun pirate cartel may have a base of operations in this area. Assests are being shifted to verify this.
American Arm
All craft are notifed that sentinel launchers have been deployed around the orbital construction facilities at Botany Bay (DM +33 2277). Current IFF codes are required for safe passage.

01 March

Core
A surgical strike by units of IMS has neutralized a staging base and landing strip in the interior of the island of Borneo that is now known to have been used by the Illustrious Father of the Red Sun pirate cartel. Several key leaders of the base and the cartel were captured or killed. A single interface-cable craft escaped to orbit; its present whereabouts is unknown.

SAM-N has issued a priority watch in the Arm for a vessel operated by the Illustrious Father of the Red Sun pirate cartel. It is suspected that the craft is on its way to Joi to claim asylum in the country of Elysia.
Chinese Arm
Initial investigation of the Quigyuan system has not yielded any signs of having been a base for the Illustrious Father of the Red Sun pirate cartel. A Rimbel-class survey ship has been diverted to the system to aid in the search. All traffic is directed to avoid the Quigyuan system or risk being fired upon as a suspected pirate vessel.
American Arm
A Provolution cell on King (DM+2 3312) is suspected in the latest terrorist attack at a government medical research facility in the Australian colony. This brings to five, the number of attacks on the planet in the last year.

French Arm
Reports of increased Kafer activity are being received from the Arcturus system. Several multi-thousand ton displacement vessels have been monitored arriving in system and then returning to their origin once stutterwarp discharge is complete. The presence of a forward Kafer base in system is heavily suspected.
Chinese Arm
The Foxx Industries vessel, Alaba, a Rimbel-class survey ship has completed an initial survey of the Quigyuan system. Several dock rocks have been found, but all appear to be abandoned. The survey for a Illustrious Father of the Red Sun pirate cartel operations bases continues.
American Arm
All personnel in the Australian colony on King (DM+2 3312) are advised to carry all required identification following the implimentation of stringent security checks by the Australian military. The increased security measures come in the wake of the fifth terrorist attack in the colony in the last year.
