Here's what we know so far:
About one month ago a contingent representing the Rex-Avis Trust departed Proserpine on a trade mission to the Kingdom of Colores in Sector Six. They arrived safely at a Colores orbital station about two weeks ago. They can be seen here touring what appears to be a Colores research facility.
The exact nature of the trade mission is still secret, but it appears to relate to a naval shipbuilding program. Colores cruiser KCS Passeraux can be seen below alongside what may be a new class of warship, possibly to be named KCS Iowa. It is believed that the mission relates to this latter new class of ship.
Below is a photograph of an energy unit that may be the subject of the trade deal. We contacted an engineering expert visiting Proserpine from Burgkhan Kaldun Prime. In her estimation guild digs on Moab II likely yielded the breakthroughs behind this new unit. The extension on the right may be a small tachyon accelerator. She was unable to speculate further from the photograph, but deems it possible that the device may use some kind of tachyon field reaction. The energy density of tachyon fields is amongst the highest now known, and some physicists have speculated that the collapse of such a field, if properly controlled, could approach perfect matter to energy conversion, which would allow a powerplant of enormous output in an unprecedentedly small footprint.
The unit was apparently taken to a station on the Bakkun Moon's Plain of Loneliness which can be seen in the diagram and photograph below. The Rex-Avis party is apparently standing on the terrace of the observation center.
Late last week a special operations unit carried out an assault on the Colores research facility. An armored fighting vehicle of an unidentified type can be seen below. This vehicle was apparently a part of the attack.
We hate to speculate too far, but it seems quite unlikely that the timing and location of the attack could be coincidence. Apparently parties hostile to either or both the Rim or Colores have taken an interest in our trade deal or construction project it would benefit.
The Rex-Avis contingent was present at the time. Colorado and Octavia Rex-Avis both escaped the incident. Our reporters have been in contact with their staff. No statement is, as yet, forthcoming. All photographs and maps above have been obtained from sources in the Kingdom of Colores. To learn more of the incident, please consult the Sector Six Governor General's release on the events.
This is a developing story. Our initial report appears under the title Rex-Avis to Sector Six. Please check back!
