Star Conflict 1.2.2
Attention to all UMC pilots! Scientists report the approach of the next ‘Signal Peak’. Each year, at the end of October of Earth calendar, the universe experiences a passing wave of anomalous energy. It’s time for the old Earth tradition called ‘Halloween’. Fanatics and cultists who worship the Signal think that on ‘Halloween’ dead souls penetrate into our world. Despite numerous reports of ghost ships and other abnormal phenomena, the Inquisition considers it its duty to inform you that all of this is pure fiction. Ghosts do not exist! Any cases of dissent should be reported to the nearest military command post. ‘W.I.T.Ch. Protocol’ is coming into force. High alert mode is introduced on all bases. Under the terms of the tripartite memorandum ‘On quarantine zones’ all three factions are co-operating on this matter.
Special agent of the Inquisition Miranda del Arte has been appointed to oversee the operation.
New PvE mission ‘Fire Support’
We have received a distress signal from the complex ‘Naberia-392’. UMC Recon Squad is requesting fire support. They are reporting an attack of unknown ships. You are going to have to act above the surface of a planetoid. An old Federation plant was converted a few years ago, it was used to build ships and modules for Cybers and pirates. Now the plant is empty, but its machinery is perfectly fine.
