AAR: Battle for Caldari Prime

It’s finally happened, Tibus Heth’s appointment of Visera Yanala to command the Leviathan class Titan Shiigeru inevitably would lead to conflict. The Titan in low orbit of Caldari Prime has been a constant reminder of the tensions between the Gallente Federation and the Caldari State.

We knew this day would come, with all the furore this week regarding clone soldiers and the escalation in Luminaire, I was watching GalNet with trepidation of what would happen.

I was only 17 jumps from Luminaire so decided to head to the system so I could recount the events first hand. I didn’t intend to be part of any hostilities, but would render aid when and where needed.

Landing in the system I warped to the Titan at 100 Km and engaged my cloak to observe the symbol of ultimate destruction the Caldari State had at their disposal. Has it hung there in space with countless capsuleer ships buzzing around it there was a palpable sense of dread of things to come.

With a ping of my Neocom I received an update from the news wire that confirmed what I was seeing, the capital ship had entered a low orbit of the planet. As time went by more capsuleers entered the system and warped to the ship to witness the events. I kept my distance and ensured my cloak was functioning correctly, I didn’t want any miss-haps, even though this would be considered friendly space for me.

At 13:39 Eve Standard Time (EST) four Wyvern class Supercarriers joined the Titan and began Remote Repair operations between each other, a standard logistics tactic, you can infer for yourself what that means. The four Wyvern’s were piloted by decorated officers of the Caldari Navy:

Clearly this escalation could only mean one thing, they intended to annex Caldari Prime and use force to do it. It’s not the first time I’ve seen capital ships, they are pretty ubiquitous in null sec warfare and I own a few carriers myself, but to see them orbiting a planet in high security space I felt uneasy about what would happen and the fact they were able to jump into a Gallente sovereign system unmolested.

It wasn’t long before a system wide message was broadcast from the commander of the Titan, Visera Yanala:

[14:14:11] Visera Yanala  > ALERT – 37TH SQUADRON – OBLIVION ONLINE AND TEST SPOOLING

My heart stopped, the Obilivion is what is know as a Dooms Day weapon, its name is apt because that’s what it does, causes oblivion. Titans are the only class of ship that is capable of using such weapons and the fact that Visera Yanala was going through weapon checks was clear indication she intended to use it. I doubt she is the kind for bravado, things just got really serious.

After a couple of minutes she made a system wide broadcast:

[14:16:44] Visera Yanala > 37TH SQUADRON – OBLIVION TEST SPOOL COMPLETE. STATUS : IDLE

The weapon was functional and ready for use. Normally these weapons are only used against other capital ships, but was her intention to unleash this awesome power against the planet?!

If I was able to take a deep breath in my pod I would have, the tension was electric and my senses were being bombarded with the inputs from my ship. I needed to focus, this was going to be a pivotal moment between the Caldari and Gallente, I needed to to calm down and assess the situation.

I knew there would be others in New Eden eager for first hand reports of the situation so began to relay data to the Intergalactic Summit (IGS), this gave me a task to help focus my mind and calm me.

As the minutes passed I launched more camera drones to survey the situation and to provide a visual record to IGS. At 14:33 EST another broadcast was made from Visera Yanala:

[14:33:30] Visera Yanala > ALERT – 37TH SQUADRON – SURFACE SIDE CONTACT LOST – 14:31:57 – ALL TUBES ONLINE – OBLIVION SPOOLING – STATUS : STANDBY (HIGH ALERT!)

Around the same time another ping on my Neocom came through from the news wires clarifying the situation. There was a massive ground assault in progress and communications were interrupted between the planet and the orbiting fleet in an effort to “render the Caldari orbital fleet unable to provide orbital support without reliable coordinates“.

We were all waiting for news on the situation when Visera Yanala broadcast again:

[14:34:24] Visera Yanala > ALERT – 37TH SQUADRON – ALIGNING FOR ORBITAL STRIKE – LAST COORDINATES LOCKED
[14:40:30] Visera Yanala > STATUS – FIRE POSITION CONFIRMED – AWAITING AUTHORIZATION
[14:46:00] Visera Yanala > 37TH SQUADRON – STATUS – STAND DOWN – FIRE ORDER SUPPRESSED – ALL WEAPONS ON STANDBY

The situation was on a knife edge, Visera Yanala was primed for an orbital bombardment of the planet when she was ordered to stand down. The offensive on the planet was continuing and it seemed the Caldari were gaining the upper hand.

[15:16:31] Visera Yanala > 37TH SQUADRON – STATUS – CALDARI ARMED FORCES APPEAR TO BE WORKING TOWARD SURFACE SIDE SUPERIORITY
[15:17:24] Visera Yanala > ALERT – FULL STAND DOWN – MAINTAIN POSITION

As time passed, news was sparse adding to the tension, I listened to the Local chat and watched more capsuleers enter the area. Soon another broadcast came over the Local channel from a representative of the Directive Enforcement Department (DED):

[15:32:59] Odo Korachi > ALL PILOTS – REMAIN CALM – TRAFFIC CONTROL IS CURRENTLY OFFLINE ON ORDER OF THE DIRECTIVE ENFORCEMENT DEPARTMENT

The system was on lock down, with approximately 1000 capsuleers in the system the stargates were closed to traffic, the representative continued to broadcast:

[15:37:19] Odo Korachi > CALDARI NAVY – STATUS REPORT
[15:37:53] Visera Yanala > NEGATIVE – OPERATIONAL SECURITY DOES NOT PERMIT RELEASE OF DETAIL
[15:44:55] Odo Korachi > [DED] PEACEKEEPER, HAILING [CN] SHIIGERU – STATUS REPORT – IMMEDIATELY
[15:45:17] Visera Yanala > [DED] PEACEKEEPER, CANNOT COMPLY
[15:47:00] Odo Korachi > [CN] SHIIGERU – THIS IS A FINAL REQUEST – STATUS REPORT ON WEAPONS AND ENGINEERING SYSTEMS IMMEDIATELY
[15:47:28] Odo Korachi > ANY FIRE ON LUMINAIRE VII WILL BE CONSIDERED AS A BREACH OF THE YULAI CONVENTION
[15:48:41] Kola Moiras > The planet is named Caldari Prime, Brigadier-General
[15:49:05] Visera Yanala > [DED] PEACEKEEPER – AKNOWLEDGED
[15:49:19] Visera Yanala > CANNOT COMPLY – YOU ARE IN VIOLATION OF CALDARI STATE AIRSPACE
[15:49:29] Visera Yanala > VACATE ORBIT OF LUMINAIRE VII IMMEDIATELY
[15:50:01] Odo Korachi > [CN] SHIIGERU – CEASE AND DESIST IMMEDIATELY
[15:50:26] Odo Korachi > [CN] SHIIGERU – WEAPONS OFFLINE – DIRECT ORDER
[15:50:45] Visera Yanala > [DED] PEACEKEEPER – AKNOWLEDGED – CANNOT COMPLY
[15:51:24] Visera Yanala > [DED] PEACEKEEPER – VACATE ORBIT OF CALDARI PRIME IMMEDIATELY – YOU ARE IN VIOLATION OF CALDARI AIRSPACE
[15:51:52] Odo Korachi > [CN] SHIIGERU – CANNOT COMPLY – CEASE AND DESIST, THIS IS YOUR FINAL WARNING
[15:52:13] Visera Yanala > [DED] PEACEKEEPER – WE HAVE GIVEN AMPLE WARNING. YOU NOW LEAVE US WITH NO CHOICE.

With that there was a bright flash and an explosion, the DED representatives ship was destroyed. This was a bold move from the Caldari, attacking and destroying a DED representative was unheard of!

[15:53:13] Visera Yanala > CAPSULE OF FORMER VESSEL [DED] PEACEKEEPER – VACATE ORBIT OF CALDARI PRIME IMMEDIATELY – YOU ARE IN VIOLATION OF CALDARI AIRSPACE
[15:53:48] Odo Korachi > [CN] SHIIGERU – THE INNER CIRCLE WILL BE IN TOUCH.
[15:55:25] Kola Moiras > Glory to the State!

If there was any doubt of the States intentions this action was a clear indication that all out war was about to happen. To attack and destroy a member of CONCORD was brazen even for a Caldari, and here it happened for all to witness. I will have to admit I was impressed with the actions of Visera Yanala, to take this action requires a certain kind of fortitude.

With all this action in space I was distracted from the events on the planet:

[16:11:59] Kola Moiras > Madam Yanala – Reports indicate that the State maintains the upper hand on the planet. We are winning.
[16:12:35] Rautsuri Autima > Glory to the State!

This doesn’t bode well. Regardless of the military losses, there are civilians down there, and its those people that are suffering the most, on both sides.

Luminare D-SCAN Caldari Navy

As time went by, my Directional Scanner (D-SCAN) was keeping any eye on the system, after each ping there wasn’t much to report then suddenly the feed from the D-SCAN filled with more capital ships. Eight more Caldari Navy Chimera class Carriers had jumped into the system and were probably aligning for the planet.

This was escalating beyond control. More capitals means more destruction, the Gallente Federation must make a move to stop this before all is lost. Within minutes the fleet of carriers warped to the planet and formed around the Titan.

Again I was in awe of power on the field, to see such massive ships in formation was both beautiful and shocking. The combined strength of these vessels would make short work of a planet and none would survive the onslaught.

A broadcast came over the Local channel from the carrier wing commander, which was responded to by one of the Wyvern veterans:

[16:11:59] Kola Moiras > Madam Yanala – Reports indicate that the State maintains the upper hand on the planet. We are winning.
[16:12:35] Rautsuri Autima > Glory to the State!

Luminaire D-SCAN Federation Navy

Within minutes my D-SCAN alerted me again, this time there were Federation capitals being displayed. The response was here, what their intentions were we could only guess.

Would the Caldari rescind their attacks and leave the field? Or would they fight and end this right here and now?

With past events I was inclined to believe the latter and the previous actions of Visera Yanala would only help confirm this supposition.

She’s not to be messed with, she has years of experience in war and conflict despite her absence from the military in recent years.

Tibus Heth chose her for a reason, she doesn’t back down from a fight and that’s what she would get.

 

[16:42:43] Visera Yanala > 37TH SQUADRON – STATUS – FEDERATION NAVY VESSELS DETECTED ON DIRECTIONAL SCAN – PREPARE
[16:44:51] Visera Yanala > 37TH SQUADRON – PREPARE FOR CONTACT.

Within minutes of the broadcast the entire fleet of Federation ships warped to the planet! They took offensive positions at the planet within range of the Titan. An officer of the Federation fleet, Hjalta Bebemangeur, addressed the system and spoke directly with Visera Yanala:

[17:11:19] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Gallente, there are battles ongoing on the ground, and this vessel is an unacceptable threat to all our brave fighters
[17:12:54] Visera Yanala > FEDERATION NAVY VESSELS – THIS IS YOUR FINAL WARNING. DISENGAGE AND WITHDRAW. YOU ARE IN VIOLATION OF A CALDARI NAVY NO-FLY ZONE
[17:13:23] Hjalta Bebemangeur > This Leviathan was put in place by a madman! It has no business casting a shadow on honest Gallente citizens
[17:15:09] Rautsuri Autima > Shun Makoto, the Caldari are strong! We will beat back these Gallente scum!
[17:15:11] Hjalta Bebemangeur > The Shiigeru could cause untold destruction and the loss of innocent lives if left unchecked. Do your duty, pilots!
[17:16:49] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Caldari pilots, you are in the service of a madman! See sense! Join the side of the righteous!
[17:16:58] Visera Yanala > CALDARI LOYALISTS – PRIMARY TARGET IS ADMIRAL AUVIER BAUVON – REMOVE HIM FROM THE FIELD. THE SHIIGERU IS STABLE.

With that the battle began. I quickly launched a camera drone with recording capabilities to capture the start of the battle.

I managed to get three minutes of feed before the drone was jammed, but as you can see the Federation brought a serious amount of fire power to the field.

The battle was in full swing, capsuleers joined fleets for their respective factions and began fighting with the navies and each other, rallying to the calls of the factions to target either sides of the conflict. At 17:01 EST a broadcast from CONCORD flashed across my Neocom:

CONCORD TRAFFIC ADVISORY A full-scale conflict between the Gallente and Caldari armed forces has begun in the Luminaire system. All capsuleers are advised to add Luminaire to their autopilot avoidance list and stay clear of the system for the duration of the day. CONCORD cannot guarantee the security of the system and will not be held liable for any loss of property or life until the situation is brought back under control.

Ships on the field

Ships on the field

With this an alarm went off within my ship notifying me that I was now flagged with “Suspect Status”, this effect was system wide and all capsuleers were now flagged the same regardless of their actions. Even though I was cloaked I had a moment of apprehension that this was CONCORD’s final solution to this conflict. Let everyone blow each other up and hope for the best.

At 17:28 EST a broadcast was heard from the commander Sami Okuuda, the loss of a Wyvern was imminent, a blow to the Caldari Navy. The wave of destruction could be seen emanating from its broken hull out into space.

[17:21:24] Aubarell Dogenon > It’s too late, Yanala you mad dog, you cannot stop us by removing one of our officers. Unlike you Caldari we have not fallen into rule by one dictator.
[17:23:12] Sami Okuuda > CALDARI LOYALIST CAPSULEERS – FOR THE STATE! – PRIMARY TARGET IS ADMIRAL AUVIER BAUVON
[17:24:27] Rautsuri Autima > Caldari supporters! Keep true! Bring down Admiral Auvier Bauvon!
[17:24:46] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Caldari loyalist capsuleers – leave now! You are assisting in an atrocity that has no reason nor justification. The Shiigeru needs to be destroyed!
[17:26:06] Visera Yanala > CALDARI PILOTS – WE MUST DEFEND OUR HOMEWORLD. SHOW YOUR PROWESS ON THE FIELD.
[17:26:07] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Aramis, to help the Gallente, attack the Titan!
[17:26:51] Sami Okuuda > ALL ABLE PERSONNEL ABANDON SHIP

The battle continued. Streams of citadel missiles and artillery blazed across space to their targets, each hit devastating and wreaking to each side, the Gallente had the home advantage, this is Gallente space.

[17:27:10] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Shun Makoto, this airspace was illegally claimed by a madman. We are taking it back!
[17:28:40] Rautsuri Autima > Bebemangeur, it was not illegally claimed but rightfully reclaimed from the enemies that took it from us! Glory to the State!
[17:28:53] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Shun, the threat to human life on the planet posed by the Shiigeru is unacceptable, irrespective of faction. It must go!
[17:30:44] Aubarell Dogenon > When Heth put his pet warmonger at the helm of that ship he made this action inevitable.
[17:32:12] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Caldari pilots, irrespective of your politics, there are now ongoing battles on the planet, and this Titan is a threat held by a madman, put in place to murder innocent people.
[17:32:20] Hjalta Bebemangeur > It cannot be allowed to exist!
[17:32:37] Rautsuri Autima > You Gallente do nothing but sling about petty insults and demeaning remarks. Admiral Yanala was tasked with reclaiming Caldari Prime, for the good of the State! You do not get to call her a warmonger when it is your actions that forced this deployement!
[17:33:17] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Rautsuri, The good of a dictatorial madman is not the good of the faction, nor the people on the planet

As an observer of many conflicts, I could see the Gallente had the upper hand, sure they were in their sovereign space, but the Caldari were fools to force this conflict unless they had support inbound.

[17:34:38] Visera Yanala > 37TH SQUADRON – TIGHTEN FORMATION, THE SHIIGERU IS STABLE, KEEP YOUR SUPPORT FOCUSED ON THE PHOENIX CLASSES
[17:34:45] Rautsuri Autima > Heth is the strength of the Caldari State incarnate! You do not get to insult our people in this way!
[17:35:38] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Heth is a madman who would damn his own people on that planet simply to hold on to power for a little longer. The Shiigeru is a symbol of his madness. It must be destroyed!
[17:36:35] Visera Yanala > CALDARI LOYALISTS – FOCUS FIRE ON THANATOS CLASS – DEVESET ARNOCHE
[17:39:23] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Gallente supporters and all others who support the rights of the free: Destroy the titan!
[17:40:35] Visera Yanala > PILOTS OF THE Caldari Independent Navy Reserve – OUTSTANDING WORK. FOCUS FIRE ON DEVESET ARNOCHE

Even though I could not hear Visera Yanala voice there was an intimation of panic in her broadcasts, calling her fleet to regroup and then to the capsuleer loyalist, she was playing the scenarios through her mind, she could see the inevitable.

Battle for Caldari - Overpowered

Battle for Caldari – Overpowered

The Gallente forces pressed the attack despite losing a Chimera, this was a numbers game and the Caldari were out numbered.

As capsuleers fought between each other their numbers thinned too, bright lights of exploding ships and the faint warp trails of pods could be seen across the battlefield.

This was a fight of the capitals and it would take capital fire power to destroy a titan. The capsuleers that remained used Smart Bombs to inflict area of effect damage in the hopes to cause the widest amount of damage. Even this wasn’t enough against a capital fleet of both sides.

[17:39:23] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Gallente supporters and all others who support the rights of the free: Destroy the titan!
[17:40:35] Visera Yanala > PILOTS OF THE Caldari Independent Navy Reserve – OUTSTANDING WORK. FOCUS FIRE ON DEVESET ARNOCHE
[17:40:47] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Emisune, we are not here to conquer a planet – we are here primarily to remove a dangerous weapon, wielded by a madman
[17:42:00] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Emisune, a weapon locked on a target is still an immense danger, especially when held by a madman
[17:42:29] Rautsuri Autima > Bebemangeur, that sounds so noble when you make the lie so sugar sweet. The planet is in turmoil because of the Gallente! There is no denying that!
[17:42:44] Hjalta Bebemangeur > All our supporters, attack the Titan!
[17:43:50] Hjalta Bebemangeur > The planet is in turmoil. There are ongoing battles down there. Now is the time when the madman would make good on his threat. We have to stop him!
[17:44:31] Visera Yanala > 37TH SQUADRON – [CN] SHIIGERU STATUS – SHIELD STABLE AT 21% – ALL TUBES REARMING FOR FIRST ORBITAL STRIKE

Even though the Caldari fleet was engaged in ship to ship combat the commander of the fleet was attempting to initiate a bombardment of the planet. This act seemed more akin to slaughter of civilians on the planet than to assist their forces pressing the attack.  Visera Yanala tactics were unravelling.

[17:45:08] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Gallente, we must NOT allow these madmen to strike down on the planet
[17:47:23] Visera Yanala > FEDERATION NAVY VESSELS – YOU WERE GIVEN AMPLE WARNING OF THE REPERCUSSIONS FOR YOUR ACTIONS.
[17:48:00] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Gallente supporters, you can shoot at the Leviathan with impunity!
[17:48:06] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Now is the time to show your support!

The rallying cry of the Federation commander was inspiring, the capsuleer supporters focused their attention on the Titan and began to cause considerable damage in unison with the Federation fleet.

[17:53:15] Hari Okkamon > THIS IS [CN] SHIIGERU, SHIELD FAILURE IMMINENT
[17:53:25] Hari Okkamon > ALL PERSONNEL ABANDON SHIP
[17:53:29] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Keep going, Gallente! We will see the Titan burn!
[17:53:35] Hari Okkamon > THIS IS [CN] SHIIGERU, SHIELD FAILURE IMMINENT
[17:53:37] Hari Okkamon > ALL PERSONNEL ABANDON SHIP
[17:54:09] Hjalta Bebemangeur > This is our time of glory, brave capsuleers! The Shiigeru will fall!
[17:54:21] Rautsuri Autima > Loyalists! Assist the Shiigeru! It must not fall!
[17:55:09] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Everyone, you can fire on the Leviathan with abandon! You will be helping hold off the assault of a madman
[17:55:11] Visera Yanala > THIS IS [CN] SHIIGERU – ALL CALDARI LOYALISTS – FOCUS FIRE ON DEVESET ARNOCHE
[b][17:55:51] Visera Yanala > THIS IS [CN] SHIIGERU, PRIMARY REACTOR CONTAINMENT FAILURE – SECONDARY REACTOR ONLINE. PRIMARY MAGPULSE PROPULSION SYSTEM FAILURE – WE ARE ADRIFT
[17:57:07] Visera Yanala > THIS IS [CN] SHIIGERU, PRIMARY MAGPULSE PROPULSION SYSTEM FAILURE – WE ARE ADRIFT
[17:57:24] Visera Yanala > PREPARING FOR BOMBARDMENT OF CALDARI PRIME
[17:57:44] Hjalta Bebemangeur > They are falling! Gallente, stay on target! Show the madman what we think of his trampling of human rights!

With shields failing and the inherent weakness of Caldari armour the Titan was in desperate trouble. Visera Yanala’s orders became erratic as she tried to refocus her fleet while her ship began to fail around her.

[17:57:56] Visera Yanala > Visera Yanala > THIS IS [CN] SHIIGERU, PRIMARY REACTOR CONTAINMENT FAILURE – SECONDARY REACTOR ONLINE. PRIMARY MAGPULSE PROPULSION SYSTEM FAILURE – WE ARE ADRIFT
[17:58:28] Aubarell Dogenon > Stop this lunatic, finish her!
[17:59:26] Visera Yanala > THIS IS [CN] SHIIGERU, ALL HANDS ABANDON SHIP. REPEAT, ALL ABLE PERSONNEL ABANDON SHIP.
[17:59:30] Visera Yanala > THIS IS [CN] SHIIGERU, ALL HANDS ABANDON SHIP. REPEAT, ALL ABLE PERSONNEL ABANDON SHIP.
[17:59:35] Hjalta Bebemangeur > If the Titan is allowed to stay in orbit, it could fire down on innnocent people!
[17:59:41] Visera Yanala > THIS IS [CN] SHIIGERU, ALL HANDS ABANDON SHIP. REPEAT, ALL ABLE PERSONNEL ABANDON SHIP.
[17:59:57] Visera Yanala > THIS IS [CN] SHIIGERU, ALL HANDS ABANDON SHIP. REPEAT, ALL ABLE PERSONNEL ABANDON SHIP. – FULL REACTOR CONTAINMENT FAILURE IMMINENT

My senses and sensors were briefly overloaded with the immense blast of the Titan exploding, the ship sent shock waves in all directions as the wrecked hull began to plummet to towards the planet. A chorus of messages were broadcast across the Local channels from the Gallente loyalists while the Caldari  cursed the loss of the Titan.

[18:01:10] Hjalta Bebemangeur > For the Federation!
[18:01:21] Gautierre Durbelles > VICTORY!
[18:02:12] Hjalta Bebemangeur > We did it! Amazing job, capsuleers!
[18:06:15] Hjalta Bebemangeur > We did a wonderful thing here for democracy and freedom, people
[18:06:23] Hjalta Bebemangeur > Hopefully the fighting on the ground will go our way

The loss of the Titan didn’t stop the rest of the fleet, albeit leaderless, they continued to fight and call for support from the capsuleers.

[ 2013.03.22 18:07:25 ] Rautsuri Autima > Loyalists! We may have lost the Shigeru but we still haven’t lost the battle! Concentrate your fire on Hjalta Bebemangeur

The request fell on deaf ears and eventually the remaining Caldari fleet jumped from the system. A final word from the Federation fleet sealed the conflict to the annals of history.

[18:08:10] Aubarell Dogenon > Without victory there can be no peace. Well done all friends of peace!

Witnessing such an eventful encounter I felt mixed emotions about the whole event, New Eden can seem peaceful on day and be on the brink of total failure the next. Today was the latter. I still had my “Suspect Status” flag so decided to warp to a predetermined safe spot in the system to wait out the timer.

While aligned and in the stillness of space I recounted the spectacle of what had just happened. After over five years since the Titan arrived at Caldari Prime a new chapter was being written in the blood of civilians and military alike. What will happen next, time will only tell and what the rise of the “clone soldiers” will bring to the conflict will surely be bloody and visceral.

One thing I do know, and probably because I spent my formative years with the Caldari, the State will not shy away and will probably come back with more teeth than we ever realised. The hope that freedom for all in the cluster will soon prevail is the only thing we can hold on to.

  1. This is a fantastic recount of a great event. Thanks for writing this – I would have missed some of the pre-engagement events otherwise!
    I’ve been waiting five years for Luminaire to be freed of that titan.

    • Glad to be of service, it was a great day for the Federation, I just hope there is scope for peace between the two sides. As I said before, I fear this will not be the case and only more hostilities will ensue.

  2. Fantastic AAR!

    • Thank you kind sir, we are in interesting times and seeing this story evolve everyday. I’ll endeavour to share what I learn as it happens.

    I remember when i first jumped into caaldari prime and saw the titan, I told my friend what I saw and he didn’zt believe me because it was high sec. SO BIG
