Admiral Visera Yanala confirmed that contact was lost with the surface of Caldari Prime at 11:01 New Eden Standard Time over Luminaire local comms this hour.

This has pressed the Leviathan-class titan to move into low orbit, prompting (as you already may know) a large capsuleer presence.

EDIT - Seems the Scope has already reported on this.

I have been working in an official capacity for near enough half of my life.

This is the first time in those years that I have felt... stress.

... I have nothing adequate to say. I don't think anybody does.

I've been in deadspace too long to know exactly what's been going on, but now I'm mildly curious as to whether I inadvertly moved close to what could be considered a 'bad neighbrhood'.

"I say that even as the holy and the righteous cannot rise beyond the highest which is in each one of you - so the wicked and the weak cannot fall lower than the lowest which is in you also.  And as a single leaf turns not yellow but with the silent knowledge of the whole tree, so the wrong-doer cannot do wrong without the hidden will of you all."

Words cannot adequately express the turmoil we now face.

Here we are, the authors of the present day, participants in the stage of history; to gash yet another scar into time. When the dust and smoke settles, how deep will we have cut and who will have paid the price? Will this be the final cut before the healing begins or merely the tip of the sword we seek to impale ourselves upon?

What manner of monster will we have become?

It will all end in fire.

Let it come. Let it all burn.

There's no going back. No way to undo any of it. Let it all end.

Seems the mass influx of travel temporarily disabled the Cynosaural field jammers in Luminaire for a short while. An unknown size Federation capital fleet was seen moving out of Algogille in this period.

In responce the Caldari have jumped in four Wyvern class Supercarriers which have rendezvoused with the Shiigaru.


We now have a Supercarrier named the Tovil in Luminaire, I can only presume someone has a warped sense of humour in Caldari Naval Command.

Contact with the planet has been restorered. We intercepted this communication from the Titan:

[14:09:39] Visera Yanala > ALERT - 37th Squadron - First set of orbital strike co-ordinates received - awaiting fire order!

Edit: They have downgraded to Idle moments later.

That is not communication from the planet, most likely. It is communication from Caldari Naval Command.

It seems the course is set.

Communication with the planet was restored shortly around the same time the Wyverns made contact with the Leviathan.

You and I are going to need a serious chat as soon as the world is done ending in Luminaire.

Ah, thank you for the clarification. So, even with communication restored, they're proceeding with the orbital bombardment?

As well as test spooling up of the Oblivion Doomsday weapon, something I had always understood to be preventable, seems I was misinformed.

For now the guns are armed but idle, they're refraining from firing. The Admiral did confirm however that the Leviathan may possibly be used to provide bombardment support to the planetside.
