They lacked the idea of a traditional nation-state, but remained cohesive still, and the few worlds they had permanently settled were industrial powerhouses, funded by automated mining operations that imported valuable resources from nearby systems.

I've always been enchanted by the idea of polities that exist despite not being true nation-states so this caught my eye. On another note, the motto "Ever Vigilant" was almost my choice here but I decided it was probably best to go for something more substantial.

The government of St. Astraea is a paradoxical mixture between a byzantine combination of “bureaucratic hell” in particular areas and the epitome of streamlined efficiency in others.

I imagine a Bugatti Veyron but with broken brakes, a dead dashboard, and a twig where the steering wheel is supposed to be.

Soldiers alone don’t win crigs. From the gun you carry to the biggest ship in the Allied fleet, each is a gear in the crigsmachine we’re on, and as the ‘engineers’ of this machine, it’d be best if you knew each and every cogwheel, axle, switch, and wire that makes this thing work.

I very much enjoy the comparison to war as a machine and tacticians as engineers of the whole show. I may be reading too much into it, but I'd dare say the quote itself is a good way to view the industrial society that General ██████ █████████ is apart of.

Oh and "And, for the love of god I, still have these black boxes on my name!" was a fantastic addition.

AAN:

Flyin' low across the trees, pilots doing what they please, dropping frags on refugees, napalm sticks to kids!

Also, the line two lines below this one- "So that was what he did"- kind of breaks the pacing for me, you might want to remove it if that matters to you.

AN:

COLONIAL AUTHORITY

Alright, how'd the boys up at Goddard manage this one?


The economy of St. Astraea is highly automated and industrial based. Union activity is low and influence curbed.

Low union activity? Let's fix that.

Or else you'll be lookin' down the barrel of a red-and-black militia man's rifle. And I's gonna be the one on the other end.


Terrific writing throughout the factbooks in general but this line really stood out. I feel like these words are such a wonderfully poetic closing to an especially powerful communiqué. Good stuff.
"Somewhere far away, in the distant dunes that rest silhouetted far beyond the ethereal horizons of good and evil, Convallaria has emerged as a technocratic dreamscape of shimmering ambitions and passionate indulgence. A pioneering realm of unbridled industrial sprawl and paranoid black-market underworlds centered around three things: champagne, wealth, and vigorous McCarthyism..."

When I first read this a week or so ago this particular line made me recall the Warframe song "We all life together". Now I keep humming we all life together and occasionally I'll find myself saying the above quote in place of a lyric or two. Great stuff.

I don't know why, but "Swamp Gangs" sounds like a funny word to me.

We are a FT space federation, that uses the vastness of space, and our advanced technology, to create a post-scarcity economy, with robots and dinosaurs.

This report and those attached to it represent the first findings of the FREERANGE project, established 9/22/2992 by the Hakim Commission in response to the desertion and disappearance of a number of assets related to battlefleets Aegis, Attila, Beowulf, Kali, and Konrad in the wake of the 2987 Corridor War and the subsequent establishment of the present interim government, along with the formation of the ad-hoc "Combined Battlegroup PALISADE".

Is disappeance of the ships and establishment ot the new government related to each other?
