Maybe I should wait for you to open a response thread but I can't...I just want to say I really like the second installation especially with the presentation. It's much different from the norm and different is good. This piece gets you thinking in multi-dimensions. Quite a lot is packed (hidden) in the piece in both the original submission and the corrections made by R. All of which tell an interesting story. I'm impressed. Keep it up.
Ah, so VEGA Mining is only one branch of the overall organisation. I wonder if the other parts will have some role to play in the future and why do VEGA need so many resources sent back to "Old Earth" (What happened to Old Earth? Is there a New Earth?) .... The plot thickens!!
And so, what else could be the motivations of VEGA if it's not only to get profit? i thought that they wanted all the resources for themselves, hence why they started whipping out the miners?.
It seems like if "R" wanted to convince somebody that they are the rulers and have complete control of everything (the miners know is not true ), what takes me to my next question, who is this propaganda directed at? is it to the people in "old Earth"? and what is the purpose behind it?
I'd also like to see what R has to say about the "space ****" since from the beginning of the message it was stated that there was no sign of life or colonization detected, this intrigues me the most. Were the "space turds" there when VEGA miners first arrived at the region?
And here just a quick crazy theory that i have come up with trying to answer this with the info we know atm, lol :
What if VEGA is not the only corporation actually mining for resources? i mean, there could be others competing for space domination (the reason i think this is because, as said earlier, they didn't found any kind of colonization of the region, which leads me to think that there are possibly different factions out there controlling other sectors of space) and VEGA knows that if they show any kind of weakness they could be in trouble by those factions and/or the miner rebellion. Maybe VEGA is preparing a massive secret army in "old Earth" to prevail once and for all and that's why they require so much resources. Let alone alien existence.
This 2nd story opens a lot of speculation and makes it interesting at least for me, keep them coming!
I think the propaganda is aimed at everyone; all those within the Vega Corp complexes and to some extent the rebels especially since most of them were born out in space and don't know much (divide and conquer?)...an attempt to discredit V(mystery voice). After a failed attempt to contain the miner Uprising and a pathetic run at a Retribution, Vega is losing face too fast hence the propaganda.
[my excited imagination at work] And I think a clarification be made on 'Earth' and 'Old Earth' since the two make an appearance in this piece. To me Earth (or New Earth) is where the Vega HQ is and shrouded in mystery. Old Earth is where the infinite resources are going. Very few know the coordinates of Old Earth let alone been there. This is why the Vega cargo disappear through the worm holes and no one knows where they went.
However the million coin question is what will you construct that would require such humongous resources? I think all miners should be genuinely concerned.
Perhaps Old Earth was destroyed at some point and was lost in antiquity. Now, VEGA has rediscovered Old Earth which is why they have increased the quota on resources needed to rebuild Old Earth in their own image. VEGA World
btw does anyone make the link between vega and kixeye based on that story #2 ? maybe the more paranoid players from battle pirates and war commander will for sure ...
Can you post a link to this please, I really wanna see what this new Intro thingamajig is like.
A link? Sorry thane, but these are just deliberations on our parts. The official progression of the story is yet to be seen. Stay tuned lol
I checked that out thinkin it was Video myself. I was wrong. Ah well. Thanks anyway.
Sorry for leading you on man. Hopefully a good video/story progression wouldn't be too far away...
Question: What in the hell is a level 3 loyalty check and how would a test like that even be conducted?
I could sum up a level 3 loyalty check in a short video but if I post it I would most likely be banned for it
Primary word: Frisk.
You really really don't want to know.
In my mind a Loyalty check would start out as a full inspection of the persons life, their residence turned upside down, and any communications reviewed for possible signs of disloyalty. This would lead into hours of abuse, physical labor, and questioning to break down the persons will that tears throw dishonest statements much like Russian special forces training. All the while, a team of investigators are reviewing multiple measurable diagnostic systems and compare it to information gain from interrogation and from investigative means into the persons life. At the end of the session, information is reviewed, analyzed, and a determination is made to the loyalties of that person. A favorable determination means you live and I would expect some sort of small party and award for that Person by family, friends, and co-workers to demonstrate VC appreciation. A negative determination if the individual is lucky means death if the placement and access was low. If the individual placement and access was note worthy and the individual was determined to be somewhat of a centerpiece, the individual will be further interrogation, receive behavioral modification and conditioning in a attempt to create a double agent. However if that fails the person will only be kept alive so long as he serves a purpose, once that purpose ends so does that individual.
AWESOME, good news guys, my boss wants me to undergo a level 4 loyalty check, see you when I get out!!!!!!!!!!
