[ If you wish to join The Atlas Corporation, you can visit our thread here. ]
[You know, part of the reason I dropped the whole media-dark policy is because I was so fuckin’ busy.]
// An announcement circulates that Atlas is beginning to enable the production of media. // Greetings Fringe, this is ATL-030, a news robot designed with the specific purpose of informing the public that this unit has been re-enabled for production of news. Cause of disabling is listed as: hiatus.
Firstly, to catch up on the past few weeks, Atlas would like to announce that it is proudly experimenting with interstellar ships and expects a market to form for them in the near future. Atlas is testing the current models to ensure that they are safe for civilian usage. One such test has been conducted in the Lesath system, where multiple successive launches from a large ship were carried out with no trouble. History is in the making for Atlas.
Secondly, Atlas has begin the construction of a massive space station in orbit of Lapetus, this station is concepted to have civilian residences, who can get a relatively inexpensive roof over their head with the best view of a gas giant in the galaxy. It is said to be stationed further up from the clouds of Lapetus to allow for more freedom of movement and ease of trade.The project is currently unnamed but Atlas is said to be laying the first pillars next week.
Thirdly, in the time that this news program has been gone, Atlas’ resource acquisition has changed drastically. We have developed a new way of mining and have begun employing it on fronts such as Nomeldros. The central complex of our operations there has been officially completed and Human operators have long since arrived. The station is fully functional and two massive extensions along the coastline are planned for immediate construction. This has lead to a spike in Atlas resource reserves, a spike, according to board members, that is going towards ship manufacturing as Atlas has developed new classes of ship for usage, among these are research craft, surveyors, motherships, fighter containment rigs, mass haulers and tankers.
Atlas has also recently completed an expedition to a ruin located far away from Haven, the finds however, have not been announced.
Atlas has released a statement that it plans to begin colonization of Clymene sometime within the next few months. This will be a momentous task for the group and will serve as a place for refugees from Old Atlas Federation space, given there are any. This will be Atlas’ residential capital, where people may live and work.This is Atlas’ gift to all of the tortured souls of the past. Our manifest destiny.
Atlas’ robotic program is ever-expanding, bulk purchases of consumer-grade Atlas work robots have been authorized
Atlas has successfully created a new exploration department.
And finally, Shawn Rhodes himself has made return this week, only to apologize, and be forgiven by Lloyd himself. Has this war of words finally come to an end?
That’s all for this week.
Have a productive day.
