Ok, here's what we know so far:

Commods required for the missions are:

copper
lumber
grav
cobalt
titanium
water
silicon

I expect at least one more we haven't had pop up yet.

A full shipment of 50 yields 0.17 progress.

Saito & Retseylop both want to know when and where. I spoke to one Conglomerate person and asked if they'd be interested in forming a coalition (he personally said he'd help... forget the handle atm), also asked Valus about Phoenix (Saito is Phoenix too). All this is informal at this stage. Be nice to have UMEC leadership formall approach Phoenix and Conglomerate, and maybe ... OEC? What's the "death to Therapists" squad? We need cover.

We could shoot for the weekend, starting Friday night, maybe.

Things I'd like to know... nearest station (EE? Q Core? O Outpost? LL?) for turnarounds. Any more commod missions we don't have listed.

44.65 is the status at this instant, it's where it was when I tried a mission a couple hours ago. That means 326 full missions, or, allowing for smaller ships, let's say around 450-500 missions.

A lot of the commods are in place, not enough of a few. Probably 10-20 tow loads will fix that.

Comments? Additions?

I think back in Beta we decided that LL was closest, however, if we are worried about Therapists EE is a much safer route, with only 2 Unreg sectors to patrol. I doubt Therapists will attack us in reg again, not after the stink Rostam (Rostam would just soon we settled our differances and got back to being friends, unfortunatly he's not in charge any longer) and Dong are raising (assuming Dong still has access to the squad boards)

I'm sure we could get an OEC wing to stick close to the unreg part of the route if we asked nicely. As for aproaching other squads, any member of the command staff (Advisors and Captains) can do so. If I did all the diplomatic work around here I'd never get time to fly :razz:

EveningsEnd = 224,017 distance.
    EIGHT JUMPS
    Gyre/amanhook/lastpoint/STITH/CONNEXION/DARKXROADS/gurge/EE

Lothar's Landing = 258,046 distance
    EIGHT JUMPS
    Gyre/Amanhook/lastparsec/STITH/DILUTED/Darkgateway/Farpoint/LL

LOL, where do you get those wonderful animanted gifs.

Anyway I'll have my scout by the end of today so I'll be able to make some speedy for the FM. Will just have to have everything brokered for me.

OP could be a problem with the FM Blockade going on there.

What's the next best choice, EE?

if they go through with the threat to halt all non Oct traffic in Oct space our only choices would be LL or GBS, as Gurge is Oct.

Regarding Oct FM boycott: Please note that the parties involved have expressed interest in mounting an Amananth FM storyline. Use this to our advantage and we might even gain their support and have a safe refuge at OP.

i agree, umec seems welcome in oct space by the blockaders. i am sure they would give us passage and possibly help. on a side note pilot boc has expressed interest in helping us. possibly his squad too.

Will someone who is actually "leadership" in title please exert a little leadership on this? We need some "official" contact with the squads mentioned above to discuss a coalition to do the FM. I'd say Sat and Sunday would be good target dates.

We know 8 commods required (add Barium to my list above). We have an idea of the best turnarounds. We have individual pilots interested in helping. What we need is some commitments from other transport squads and at least one defensive unit (OEC?).

If something needs writing, I'm, as always, happy to write.

If you want me to manage it, tack a title on me (right after my damned promotion to Master Trader which is nearing 6 levels late!) so I have some "official" presence when I talk to other squads.

My own current goal of 10,000 purgs per Q station is nearing completion. If I haven't seen anything accomplished on Aman FM planning when that target is reached, I will be switching to my mining medals, which means I won't be available for the FM, probably.


Sancho, the disgruntled

Well, I did the first part. We're now allied with Conglomerate (thank you, thank you) and from her it should be easy to get them to help on the Amananth FM.

Thanks, Rainy13!

Sancho: how about making up a cool storyline for JOSSH news once we've got the details hammered down. (not to mention maybe including a little blurb about our "clearance" granted by Oct.Confed...once we get the nod from them)

That would be the coolest to acknowledge that political "roleplaying" venture...hope they do okay and prosper. Sure would be neat to see the political landscape of Octavia improve (damned oct squad clique mentality over there. lol)

I plan to once we have a plan. I just spoke with Black Ops a while. they are already working on the Aman FM, but they are small. They would love to see us take it on, and they will continue to pitch in.

My help of The_Tyke on the anti-Oct-FM has us some goodwill there too.

Are we doing it this weekend? JOSSH isn't updated much after early Friday afternoon, it seems, so we need a press release out NOW if we want one. On the other hand, it would aleart the pirates, so maybe we don't.

uhm...Sancho? you know to keep that relationship with "BlackOps" squad to a minimum, right? If we start getting buddy buddy with the Octavian Confederation AND BlackOps someone's gonna start thinking we're a security risk.

I say keep our relationship with BlackOps low key, but friendly. (no need for any "Official" statements to that effect) wink

I spoke w/Doggnutts of Phoenix last night and he said he would help and bring some friends with him.

Do not repeat the following please.
Inside Info: Doggnutts expressed a wish to leave Phoenix and I let him know he would be welcome in UMEC. He said some others would possibly join him. I mentioned to him working Aman FM together could make the transition easier.

Also, now that Oct FM is done OutPost Station is looking best to me.
