Star Access, Inc. Opens New Fuel Development Facility

Deep Space — Star Access Incorporated, a subsidiary of the Plexgrove Combine, has announced the opening of a space-based fuel development facility as part of its plans for expansion.

“We have sited this facility at a strategic point close to an asteroid field and a large nebula to enable us to use the minerals and gasses found locally in our fuel research,” said the Chief Research Officer, Mordayan Whyte.

“Initial studies have shown that some common fuels, such as rhydonium, can be used alongside gaseous fuels such as clouzon-36 and its derivatives to improve efficiency and stability. We are keen to exploit these new discoveries with this state-of-the-art facility.”

The facility has been named Research Station Mimir after the ancient Corellian goddess of knowledge.

RS Mimir was officially opened by Executive Director Viv Henders, the Loronar Corporation’s Chief Technology Officer and member of the Corporate Board.

“It is a great honour to be here to bear witness to Star Access’s bold step forward in the field of fuel technology,” said Ms Henders after the official opening ceremony. “The impact of the research being carried out at this facility will be felt across the Galaxy. I am always very keen for the Loronar family of companies to push the boundaries of knowledge, and this exciting new station will support that goal.”

Ms Henders and Mr Whyte were given a tour of the station by the Chief Administrator. They met some of the company’s key research staff and were shown prototype fuel cells during their visit.

Star Access also announced that planetary hypermatter generation research was reaching an important phase, sending share prices to a sixteen month high at close of trading on the Galactic Stock Exchange.

Year 18 Day 311 — Loronar Starways to Add New Cruise Ship

LORONAR HEADQUARTERS, MONDRESS SECTOR – Loronar Starways, one of the galaxy’s largest travel companies focusing primarily on leisure and tourist ventures, today announced at a joint press conference with parent company Loronar Corporation and sister company Loronar Fleet Systems that it has signed a memorandum of agreement with Strabin Sector authorities to build and commission a new cruise ship for the company’s iconic leisure travel portfolio that will visit the Sector’s most thrilling sights, including the closely monitored Metharian Nebula, for at least a decade.

The five hundred meter long cruise ship will be built at a deep space production node of sister company Loronar Fleet Systems, with an expected delivery date later this year. The as-yet-unnamed ship will join the Zenith, Delight, and Fidelity as the fourth member of the Castle-three class fleet, marking the first time in some years that the luxury cruise brand will have four ships of that size in simultaneous service.

The new cruise ship will be the 1,249th ship to fly the Loronar Starways flag since the company’s acquisition by parent company Loronar Corporation almost two decades ago. Loronar Starways will announce additional details about the new ship when it is officially commissioned next month.

With this new ship agreement, Loronar Starways now has 18 new ships scheduled to be delivered to its portfolio of leading galactic cruise brands within the next two years.

Reia Suzix, COO, Loronar Starways & Thrane Blis, CEO, Loronar Corporation

“We are very pleased to announce a fourth Castle-3 class ship for our immensely popular Starways fleet, which by the way is also one of the most legendary brands in the entire vacation industry,” said Thrane Blis, CEO of Loronar Corporation. “Loronar Starways offers a fleet of unrivaled vessels and one of the most unique travel experiences in the galaxy, which together create an enchanting and memorable vacation for their guests. While today’s news helps drive Loronar Starway’s overall strategic growth plans, we also look forward to launching this next-generation cruise ship to help meet increasing galactic demand and entice even more travelers to explore the Starways experience.”

Reia Suzix, COO of Loronar Starways, added: “Fleet enhancement is an important part of our ongoing goal to exceed guest expectations. This includes replacing less efficient ships with more efficient vessels over time as part of our managed capacity growth.”

Donovan Bono, COO of Loronar Fleet Systems, concluded: “In fact, we have built 863 ships for Loronar Starways, representing today almost two-thirds of the company’s current fleet, with eighteen more ships to come in the next two years. This is a cooperation which can be defined as historical, based on relationships of mutual respect and trust.”

Year 18 Day 295 – Sennem Environmental Services Restores Halcatta Wetlands

Sennem Environtmental Services, in partnership with the Ksift planetary government, issued a press release Year 18 Day 295 announcing that the Halcatta Wetlands restoration project on Ksift has been completed.

The Halcatta Wetlands is a 1500-acre area in the Din continent on the planet of Ksift in the Outer Rim territories. This wetland, near a major river confluence at that world’s largest freshwater sea, is one of many wetlands that ringed Halcatta Harbor before offworld logging companies transformed it into an industrial port and center of operations.

Before the logging companies arrived, natural grasses in the lower river deltas were so abundant that some explorers struggled to find the actual river channel, according to some published reports. When the companies were forced offworld, they left their mills and processing factories in an unsafe condition, which eventually caused a massive fire that spread quickly and was uncontainable by modern methods — remnants of some mills still poked above the water. The mills and processing factories left another lasting reminder of logging operations in the bay: tons of timber and layers of soggy wood waste, up to 16-feet-deep in some areas, tragically suffocated fish and wildlife.

Sennem Environmental Services (a subsidiary of the Loronar Corporation) was contracted to clean up the Wetlands and restore the natural habitat. To make the wetland suitable again for local wildlife, Sennem crews used heavy equipment to remove tons of soggy wood waste and restore natural channels. Workers then reseeded the marsh by tossing bags of rocks laced with seeds into the water, where they sank to the bottom and could be tended to by aquatic droid crews. Crews also re-planted native trees and other brush. The site is now home to dozens of species of wildlife that had previously deserted the polluted area.

While the total cost of project to the Ksift government was not disclosed, Dr. Erka Illip (Sennem CEO) said in a comment to local leaders that the greatest reward was seeing the natural habitat restored.

Year 18 Day 255 – Loronar to Acquire Mako Weapons Systems, Ltd.

LORONAR HQ, MONDRESS – An internal holomail from Thrane Blis, Loronar Corporation President and CEO, was distributed across the company this morning at eight o’clock (HQST). The message stated that Loronar has entered into an agreement to acquire Mako Weapons Systems, Ltd in order to grow the arms and armor manufacturing capabilities of its arms manufacturing subsidiary, Loronar Defense Industries. MWS is a market leader in blaster weaponry sales, research, and development, in addition to recently developing their new Triton© heavy laser system.

“With Mako Weapons Systems’ innovative technology and Loronar’s leading manufacturing capability and strong customer base, we are helping our customers address defense and security challenges in ways that make existing defense and security platforms smarter, our customers’ missions safer and their operations more efficient,” said Thrane in the holomail.

Just two years ago, Loronar and Mako entered into a teaming agreement resulting in extensive integration on LDI’s SHARC© missile system. The SHARC, integrated with Mako’s advanced sensors, increased the combat efficiency of LDI’s concussion missile capabilities in various manned and unmanned spacecraft.

Mako Weapons Systems has recently announced the completion of the TRITON laser system, which features — among many improvements — a revolutionary new cooling system for ship-mounted lasers and turbolasers. With more than 1 million test hours completed, the TRITON laser’s capabilities address some of the many challenges facing defense and security customers.

“I am proud of our team, culture, and relentless commitment to designing the best defense and security hardware in the industry,” said Grayson Gibbs, President and CEO of Mako Weapons Systems. “This acquisition allows us to leverage the strengths of one of the galaxy’s leading intergalactic companies while continuing to push our innovation to new levels.”

Mako Weapons Systems has approximately 3.2 million employees, operating primarily in the coreward sectors of the galaxy. The company will become a subsidiary of Loronar Defense Industries, operating under its current business model and reporting to Gavyn Connor, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Loronar Defense Industries. The terms of the agreement have not been disclosed. Completion of the transaction is subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Year 18 Day 248 — Aduba Abominations Win Loronar Cup

Galactic Boloball League Park — In a thrilling 4-3 victory over the Honogharan Hounds, the Aduba Abominations are the Galactic Boloball League’s Loronar Cup champions in season two. The Abominations’ victory was led by star player Cesar Adair, who holds the current record for single season assists and career assists in the fledgling league. The Abominations led the Galactic Division with twenty-nine points, and were heavy favorites heading into the Cup. However, the Sector Division Lorell Raiders edged out the Abominations in terms of total points for the season, with thirty, and thus the prize will be split between the two teams.

President Thrane Blis was on hand along with League Commissioner Alex Malik to present the trophy to the winning team and owner. Thrane would later remark to the media, “We are ecstatic at Loronar to sponsor this League and this event and help bring entertainment to millions across the galaxy. What a victory for the Abominations! This was a nail-biter and we congratulate the Abominations on their thrilling victory tonight. Good luck to all the teams next year as they vie for next year’s Loronar Cup!”

Loronar acquired the naming rights to the GBL championship game earlier this season for an undisclosed sum.

Year 18 Day 231 – Loronar AgriCorp Invests In Future Of Galactic Agriculture

DEEP SPACE — The chairwoman of Loronar AgriCorp (LAC), Mykeera Salmaz, has today announced that the company is to pilot a new kind of space-based agricultural facility.

“We know that, due to the ongoing conflict across the Galaxy, there are many planets that are no longer able to support large-scale agricultural developments. Part of our mission is to be innovative, and I’m pleased to announce that Loronar’s Corporate Board has approved a budget to allow us to test new ideas for crop production.”

LAC has begun the process of modifying a space station as  a test bed for large scale space-based agricultural facilities. Initially the station will focus on agronomy, but provision will be made for an expansion to allow for experiments in aquaculture to be carried out.

Chairwoman Salmaz explained that the ultimate goal of the research was to explore the possibility of creating a series of cheap, easily-constructed space stations to be used to supplement the Galaxy’s food supply network. “We know that we can never replace agriworlds, and that is not our goal. But we do think that certain types of crop may fare better in carefully controlled facilities such as these stations. In particular, those that are susceptible to disease are a key area of focus.”

The station has been named the LCS Tafanda after the capital city of Chairman Salmaz’s homeworld, Ithor.
