I have updated my original attempt to reconstruct the message. Most of it is inference based on context and general syntax recognition.

I should note for the record that I cannot be certain of any of it being accurate, it is simply what I am able to piece together. Perhaps someone will have more luck than I.

I suspect the last string is a warning against searching for him because it is too dangerous.

I will combine your work with what Ms. Priano and I have put together already and see what I come up with.

Bold above, my emphasis. The router transponders above correspond to the following:
30003453 Sun Orduin - Star
30003412 Sun Elgoi - Star

Perhaps an in-depth look at these systems would be in order? Even if the numbers are a random match and I am looking too hard in the wrong direction...

The 5000nnnn's are obviously not on any database I have access to.

Thus Spake the Frigate Goddess!

Those are both systems in Metropolis, so it might be worth asking local capsuleers if they've seen anything weird lately.

Hmm. Dispatching my associate to check those systems. I suspect, though, that the systems were simply those near to Eram, and that Tukoss wasn't able to as precisely select his target as he'd like.

More information to come.

I'll pause my analysis here to note that Elgoi and Orduin are, respectively, 1 and 2 jumps out from Eram. Unfortunately, I don't have full access to the starmaps to check on a hunch I have on this subject.

Hm. Orduin has nothing of note in the system, at least on a cursory search. Elgoi has a K162 wormhole leading to J140722. First glance seems to indicate that it is unoccupied. I'll investigate further.

Is this hunch that the two systems are on a line from the coordinates given to Eram?

The Elgoi-Orduin gates are also the only exit from the dead-end constellation in which Orduin is contained, if that helps any. Perhaps those gates, or hell, even that whole constellation, ought to be looked into more closely.

No worries, Anslo. The associate I sent is one I trust when it comes to exploratory matters, suffice it to say.

Good thinking, Mark.

Here is what Ms. Priano and I have put together so far, with a few notes:
Quote:

In the interest of preserving the integrity of the original message, I have kept a few different fill-ins that Ms. Priano and I arrived at rather than using Mssr. Antolliere's, such as in the first and third paragraphs. In the case of the latter, I do not think our translation is necessarily correct, but it is the best we could come up with while preserving the integrity of the original message. I do, however, believe that the general thrust of Mssr. Antolliere's version is more likely to be correct, even though the precise wording used by Dr. Tukoss (or whomever this is) escapes me at the moment.

I have also obviously not cleaned the message up entirely, leaving in parentheses to show where missing data has been filled in.

What's the phrase? 'Not my first time to the rodeo?' What is a rodeo, anyway?

In any case, Jsig posted above. Galnet references indicate high-security and class one statics. Directional scans inside the wormhole indicate one active tower and one dead tower, with an excess of signatures and anomalies inside the hole. It's a quiet class two, basically, without the Wolf-Rayet we suspect indicates Tukoss's current location. (edit) Morwen Lagann has posted our best guess above. I'd also like to thank her for including me in her work. While I was busy doing a crash course on encryption methods to try to find a simple way to convert Tukoss's message, Morwen Lagann was doing the sensible thing and thinking about it.

Worrying about functional immortals? Well, I'll take it as a compliment, even if I'm baffled.

But let's focus on the work at hand.

Well when you have the guy talking about contamination and then have those broadcasts in higher class wormholes about sites being contaminated you tend to worry about everything.

Excellent work Mademoiselles Lagaan and Priano.

You put together a bit more of the message than I was able to, but it looks like we're all on the same page regarding the nature and intent of the message. At this point, I will withdraw from the conversation and leave it in your capable hands. If I can be of further assistance, don't hesitate to contact me.
