Ayem colony receives its first new inhabitants


Just yesterday District News Service received the information that the negotiation between Fourth District and the Aurora Arcology thats started last year has been set in motion. Shortly we will se the first part of a 4 stages plan to increase the population on Ayem in I-MGAB with 10 000 new colonists. This will hopefully bring prosperity and a more life full activity in the solar system. The goal is at the end of the year the colony will host a population of 100 000 inhabitants, with a full function social system and a well developed economy.

DNS have included the official report form Aurora Arcology CEO Jandice Ylmadris below.

We hope that we soon will have a "on site" report on the ongoing work.

We wish Fourth District and Aurora Arcology all the best, safe winds and good luck.


After months of negotiations, a development plan for the expansion of the Ayem colony has been agreed on by 4TH District & Aurora Arcology. The old plan proposed a few months ago has been altered slightly (Datafile: Future development of Ayem Colony)
The development will happen in 4 phases. The first phase will focus on expanding existing colony infrastructure & build additional infrastructure as well. In this phase a large group of workmen will be sent down to assure rapid development. Once this is done, the second phase will start which focuses on expanding the colony population by moving willing citizens from the Arcology project to the Ayem colony.
Approximately 30.000 or more colonists will arrive during this phase, reinforcing the existing population & operate the new facilities established. Phases 3 & 4 will focus on the full integration of the additional colonists & solidify the future of the colony & it's population

The first new arrivals!

The recent report of 4TH District official Demion Samenel revealed something good concerning the current colony. It turns out there's more original settlers than expected. The total original population is now estimated around 20.000! This is good news as this means more local workers can be recruited for the Ayem colony expansion.

The first 5.000 workers from Aurora Arcology have recently arrived and 5.000 more will be expected to join them in the coming week. After they are settled in the workcamp, their first focus will be expanding the subterranean sections of the colony. This is required as the planet is very mountainous, hence flat land is rare and reserved for agriculture.
Once the subterranean sections are ready, the workers will focus on expanding the various industries and increase food production.
This will be achieved by prospecting for ore deposits & other resources to be used in the upcoming factories that will support the local economy & population. Enhancing food production will be done by expanding the farms & import additional livestock. Increasing the size of the fishing fleet will also be looked into

During this month, buy orders for Livestock, Robotics & Construction Blocks will appear in the I-MGAB system, allowing capsuleers to help out by supplying materials.

What will the near future bring?

Once the initial infrastructure expansion is done, the way is free for the first large waves of immigrants. It is expected that the colony will be able to support a population double it's size once phase 1 is over.
Plans are also drawn up to send the first security detachments with these arrivals to guarantee their safety, but also to combat crime. Negotiations with 4TH District concering these security forces are in a final phase and no problems are expected.

For those who like to assist, you can! 4TH District looks for additional corporations to develop their planets. Additional PI deployments on planet Ayem ( I-MGAB II)will help in boosting the local economy, attracting more settlers & increasing revenue, allowing the colony to expand further.

New station built in 18XA-C solar system


The new station, named "The Kin Factory" was constructed around the seventh planet in the solar system. The station received its "go ahead" and the green light on the 11.2.22 at 11.08 hours to open its docking doors.

The official naming ceremony was held 2 days ago were members of the alliance was invited to celebrated the ceremony, a special fleet of capital and sub-capital fleet stayed undocked and was equipped with firework charges to commemorate the occasion.

A capital fleet of chimera and Archon carriers together with a Phoenix dreadnought can be seen together with a small sub-capital fleet of 4TH District. Firework charges illuminated the stations hull as the celebration continued.

The newly constructed station was a long time project that was under the supervision and major contractors of Ubuntu Inc. The corporation used several sub-contractors and other members of Fourth District industrial capabilities to make the time schedule. Ubuntu has the largest time invested in the project and is the major contributors to the build.
"We are very proud of what we have achieved together, its not a easy task to created something that hopefully will last for a long time and bring safety to the region. The name "The Kin Factory" will be a dedication to all of those in Ubuntu that made this happen, and its also a recognition of our corp where we are all kin." Ubuntu´s CEO Gothmog.
The station will be under the supervision and control of Ubuntu for the time being, to ensure that the station runs smoothly, it will then be handed over to the Allied Council after that over to the Allied Investment and Holdings LLC corporation, that runs all the assets of Fourth District. After that it will fall under the jurisdiction of the Fourth District, as with all stations under the Districts control.

New Development plans for Ayem colony


Today District News Service received a message that Ayem colony in I-MGAB solar system will be granted new development plans during the year to come. This is after an agreement between Fourth District and the Aurora Arcology CEO Jandice Ylmadris that was made last year. According to the board of directors of the Infrastructure development corporation of the alliance Fourth Infrastructure investment Ltd. Mrs. Ylmadris will be allowed to install a Planetary Administration Center to facilitate the new colonists before they are integrated into new settlements. From there they will be relocated to new parts of the colony still under construction. "Still are much to be decided" a spokesperson tells the DNS "We need to decided on how many that will be relocated from the Aurora Arcology to the planet on the first stage, and we predict it will be 4 stages of relocating process in total. This need to be done in a safe manner, but if successful, we can truly see a self sustained colony on Ayem. Today we have around 20 000 workers, scientists, military personnel and their families on the planet, and work is continuing to improve the living qualities on the planet."

The development plan will continue during this year and goal is to slowly increase the inhabitants of the colony on the planet. "We have set a 4 staged relocation program that is to increase the total colonists from 20 000 up to 100 000 colonists. This will however not only include scientists, engineers, workers and military personnel, it will also include civilians trying to make a new home for themselves. They will be subjected to same laws as the rest of the Fourth District as we believe in a strong Caldari way of life and values, for some it might be some new things to take in consideration. They will become Fourth District citizens under the jurisdiction of Ayem colony board of development and the Auroura Arcology that both falls under the board of directors of Fourth Infrastructure investment Ltd. And if they want to work for any to corporation within the Fourth District it will then fall under their jurisdiction. The Office of Foreign Affairs will have a seat on the colony board and will function as a adviser for the joint project" Demion Samenel says to DNS.

This is just the first of many steps to develop a true settlement on the planet of Ayem. We will as always continue monitoring the development.

Fourth District Planetary Custom Office saved from an attack


One of Fourth District planetary custom office was attacked four days ago on the 10th. This was done by a local organisation in the area with known affiliations with hostile forces to 4TH District the Adeptus Assassinorum. The orbital infrastructure automatically sent out an distress signal when it came under attack and continued to do so until the structure got to reinforcement mode. The executive corporation of the alliance Allied Investment and Holdings LCC received the broadcast, and responded by inform the Alliance Military Advisory Board [MAB] about the attack, few hours later a call for defence was issued form the MAB were orders were to assemble its forces and organize a defense.

The Infrastructure could only hold its reinforcement mode for 24 hours, so the alliance had plenty of time to assemble the defensive fleet before that time ended. A request for capital use was also issued along side with the standard defensive fleet order, 4TH forces was issued two Chimera-class carriers from MAB and were to be piloted by members of Caldari Independent Navy Reserve. Both pilots was going in at the same time to be able to repair the damaged infrastructure as quick as possible. At 19.00 the fleet set out to different tactical solar systems and slowly made its way to the target destination. Seconds before the infrastructure around the planet came out of its reinforcement mode, our carrier pilots jumped in and started to work on the planetary office structure. It came soon to the fleets attention, as intel was coming in from fleet scouts ships that the aggressors had brought in friends, two members of Pandemic Legion was spotted in system. A few attacks was made on the carrier but nothing was taken as a serious threat at this moment. Twenty minutes in on the repairs a cynofield was spotted and a fleet of hostile battleship jumped in and started to target both carriers, these came from the aggressors corporation and close allies, the defensive fleet commanding officer ordered the fleet to jump in to system as soon as our own cynofield was given green light. 4TH forces quickly dispersed the attackers and took defensive position around the infrastructure and both carriers. The repairs could continue interrupted for a long time, and Fourth forces made use of this time to patrol the solar system and put pressure on the hostiles, most of them had taken refuge in the systems only station. The fleet commander gave order to one of the carrier pilot to jump back to District space positive that the rest of the repairs could do be finished with only one carrier. With less the half the repairer's done, the other carrier pilot gave intel that a new cynofield had open on top of the carrier, quickly 4TH forces initiated fleet warp and landed as soon as a fleet of six super carrier with the marks of Pandemic Legion had jumped in. 4TH forces started to target one of the Nyx-class supercarrier, meantime the alliance carrier went down quickly under the heavy firepower from the hostiles super carriers. The battleship fleet of 4TH District slowly started to eat through the armor of the Nyx, rest of the defensive fleet was informed that a large support wing from allied forces was on its way, but at this point more supercarriers and archon-class carriers was jumping in when more of PL´s cynos went up, and it became impossible to take down the Nyx supercarrier, what the targeting system showed at half armor.

A camera drone took these images were the wreckage of the 4TH Chimera can be seen.

The Fourth District forces was quickly reduced under the heavy fire from both supercarriers and carries of Pandemic Legion. Orders came from fleet-command to enter warp when possible and return to home system. Even if hostile forces brought in a much larger fleet to take down one carrier from 4TH, the planetary infrastructure was saved and repaired until the internal system came back online.

The low security systems close to Providence has just recently come under development from the Fourth District, and is meant to bring increased revenues from planetary custom tax. Fourth District has invested considered interest in the regions close to Providence and will do what is necessary to defend its assets from hostile forces.

"I would like to point out that with this much hostile forces and with a capsuleer alliance such as Pandemic Legion who has no problem to field a large amount of firepower, one must understand the total cost to defend such instillation in the future, but I will also make it clear that we have no intention to bend over and not respond to any attacks on our infrastructure. I´m aware of Pandemic Legion´s quick response time when they have the opportunity to attack other capital ships, and we will continue to monitor hostile movement in the region. If we get attacked again, we will be more prepared to assess any situation, we will not give the Legion more opportunity to attack our capital so easily. We all know that the Legion have a "nack" to attack lesser target and show their full prowess whenever possible. I can only think that we must have made a dent in their first Nyx, at least enough to make them worry if they lose to a lesser equipped force. That's all for now." - Commander Demion Samenel

"Thoughts" - Short Story

I have not put so much thoughts into my past life since I became a capsuleer. I mean, why should I? The gap between an immortal capsuleer and a ordinary “baseline” is growing each time I come back to any place that is familiar to me. I must have "died" dozens of times by now and the only thing that is me, was me, is billions of neurons which instantly is uploaded into a new clone when it receives the signal that I´m "dead". My new body is just a shell of nerves, flesh and muscles and each time I die it takes me a few seconds to realize that I am alive again. And on top of that I feel more a custom to the regulations of capsuleers movements in the State when I travel, as the gap was not wide enough. A lot has happen over the years and more will sure follow in its wake. I don’t know if anyone is ready at all, it seems more and more everything involving us capsuleers is driven by conflict rather than cooperation amongst each other, so it seems at least, maybe I have seen too much of conflict and to little of cooperation, maybe the future will change or maybe it will not, who knows.

One thing Im sure of, this is what I am now.
