• Attention All Comstar Customers, Due to unexpected interference by suspected Word of Blake operatives, the HPG systems update was *not* successful. No data was lost due to our careful and extensive backups; however, we will need to try again next weekend. Sincerely, Comstar Precentor Dune

I'll bet looking at the amount of slips we have for the various configurations of WarShips we can field, any IS nation stumbling upon us will be thinking we're quite a many-spiked hedgehog bristling with slips in relation to our empire's size overall... :D

There’s a sense of anticipation in the air as the various fleet formations intended for Operation: Golden Truth gather, reinforced with all of the new construction that are completing their shakedown cruises as the year wraps up. Home Fleet is deploying to properly cover all potential targets for any retaliatory strikes, while the Expeditionary and Strike Fleets have fallen back a bit to continue to rebuild their strength in anticipation of future attacks.

You do now have a number of new survey vessels, however Admiral Fisher recommends that they initially be restricted to surveying in ‘safe’ directions until they’ve been fully worked up and had some operational experience under their belts.

Some very welcome reinforcements from the NRI and NRR show up for the operation as well, a mix of ASF units from the Rasalhaguians and flotillas of corvettes and destroyers from the Romans. The current plan is to use them to supplement the main screening elements of Grand Fleet.

In general economic news is very positive across the Empire for the year, and the various investment programs put together by the Interior Ministry have borne very good fruit indeed. The worlds of Nouvelle Bourgogne and Baddorando have shown a particularly excellent economic improvement from the latest rounds of investments, with a number of exciting new industries sprouting up in both systems and boosting the local economic prospectus ratings to ‘average’ and ‘poor’ respectively.

If only Parliament was as easy to deal with. The various leaders of both chambers are extremely intransigent with Tiberius, blowing him off constantly and even when they do deign to meet with him completely refusing to be anything more than perfunctory. There is some movement among the rank and file, but leadership is quite firmly opposed to you. Makes you rather glad that you made sure to cut them down to size, because you have every reason to believe that those bastards would sell their own mothers on the street corner if it got them just a little more power.

You receive a number of reports concerning R&D projects. The most intriguing is from the teams working on a proper ‘capital’ grade shipyard capable of building the largest possible warships. These are extremely involved facilities, mostly due to just how difficult it is to build cores of that size, not to mention the hulls, maneuver drives, and ancillary equipment required for moving over two million tons of fire and fury.

The new yard type has the following requirements
  • Capital Shipyard
    • May only be built in a Core system that is either the Imperial Capital or possesses a full military base
      • Both Army and Navy
    • System must have a fully developed Large and Medium shipyard complex, and at least 20 slips of Small Shipyard capacity
    • No more than 1 per system
    • Requires DoME teams to construct

Currently, the only system that fits all of the requirements is the Griffon system.

The new Multi-Missile Launcher system is rather clever, even if it is not compatible with the latest generation of long and short range missiles. Due to its use of obsolete ammunition stocks there is a proposal to sell the technology to your allies.

  • Provides your allies with access to the MML system.
  • +1 Trade Routes
  • Improves relations with all allies
  • -1 relations, Bourbon Empire
  • -2 Approval Change
  • +1 Politics
[]Noooooo, our precious!
  • No change

Unfortunately, according to Grace, the hot launch systems that are so integral to modern ammunition types would damage the current MML design, rendering it nearly impossible to simply swap the ammunition feeds. You aren’t an engineer, so the reasoning is a bit obtuse, but evidently the ‘throat’ of the launcher is different enough to preclude hot launches.

That being said, Grace does inform you that the R&D team is furiously thinking about possibilities that would allow for more modern and capable missiles to be used, related to this development.

The new Economic Forecasting Bureau has been established as a result of the R&D work on enhanced economic forecasting techniques, the new bureau is housed in the Interior Ministry and is already producing highly valuable data which will boost growth across the Empire in the coming years.

New developments in ultra-high efficiency hydroponics and aeroponics have resulted in significant improvements in food availability, reducing costs without harming the bottom lines of food producers, processors and distributors. The improved variety, nutrition, and taste of products is highly welcomed.

DoME has accomplished a number of projects. First of all, their work on the city-planet project continues, with nearly the entire land mass of Shin Tōkyō now covered with arcologies. Future projects will focus on undersea structures as well as expanding existing arcologies even higher.

Their various terraforming projects are also bearing good fruit, boosting the habitability and comfort levels of the two systems they’ve been working on substantially. In addition they have completed the work on establishing Steingarten and New Libertalia as major logistics centers for the Empire, making your quartermasters lives much easier.

Massive numbers of new yards have been completed this year, boosting naval production to new heights and giving the prospect of hopefully being able to rapidly recover from any losses incurred in Operation: Golden Truth.

An exceptionally bright spot this year comes in the form of the continuing expansion of your ASF production capacity. On both Glorreich and Shin Tōkyō a number of commercial aerospace operations have converted their factories, at no cost to you, to increase your ASF production, nearly doubling the total number of new factories you will have access to next year. You make a point of hosting the owners of those facilities in the Palace over Christmas as a public thank you, they saved you an enormous amount of time and money and you know that the Aerospace Force is incredibly grateful for the support.

Looks like we are going to have to devote some more actions building up military bases on core worlds if we want more mega shipyards.
