    Damn Russians. First the Novichok. Now they're attacking the hospitals themselves.
  3. Colonial life is not perfect. Some planets are too hot. Some are too cold. Some are just right; But with a dosage of radiation. In this dossier today, I will be addressing some of the effects of Colonies on Humans. This dossier should be used in tandem with the Incomplete Dossier on Federal Stellar Colonies. Which will have information on Colonies that you may have Colonials from. Artwork of an explorer of Zeonides, which is currently going through an Ice Age. Examples from Colonies going forwards. There are many examples of what Colonists have to go through which those from Earth do not. Examples from the following colonies come to mind. Colonists from Scarvis have adapted to deal with low oxygen levels on the planet. Akin to Sherpas from Earth, colonists from Scarvis have developed larger chests, increased haemoglobin counts, an increase in Red Blood Cell levels, a greater affinity for that Haemoglobin & a lowered oxygen affinity. This has lead to colonists from Scarvis having an improved respiratory system over their Homeworld cousins. Colonists from Ulm on the other hand, are prone to macular degeneration & vitamin D deficiencies due to their life being majority underground, with melanin counts being significantly smaller, leading to Sickly white skin & a proneness to ginger hair. Iskander with its higher than 1g gravity, has colonists who suffer with a shorter than average height but more dense bones, allowing them to perform greater feats of weightlifting when utilized properly. Conversely Karrus has a gravity lower than 1g. Their colonists are taller than average, some being around 7 feet tall. However, their bones are brittle and they suffer in 1g environments without proper training. So what causes these changes? The reasons for changes are the environmental adaptations which happen to humans, and all animals, in a new and dangerous environment. These mutations are within the norm, and are expected when SICON and the Council determine to create a new Colony. And what can change? Skin Colour. Determined by the Pigment Melanin, stronger sunlight will produce more Melanin, so colonies who are blasted with sunlight and ultraviolet constantly will produce more to help prevent damage to internal cells and to help prevent cancers. The more you have, the darker skinned you become. On those planets, the paler skinned you are, the more increased chance of cancers or tumours you have. Hair & Eye Colour. Like skin, the colour is caused by Melanin, and the darker the eyes, the more improved your vision would be in bright light. Response to cold stress. Maintaining a higher body temperature than standard via burning off off fat and proteins in up to -40 Cel was an adaption Inuits had performed but relies on fatty meaty food sources. Whereas Aborigines in Australia had adapted to have lived in Freezing conditions without shelter or protective clothing. They did this by their limbs dropping temperature significantly during the cold, conserving energy by keeping merely their vital organs warm. The Nose. The nose adapts to heat or cold. A short and wide nose is genetically designed to help discharge water vapour and to cool your body temperature down. A long narrow nose helps to conserve heat in the cold. Nature of hair. Frizzy & Curly hair developed to enable heat loss to occur by exposing the scalp. Straight hair on the other would help to keep heat trapped to keep your scalp warm. Body Stature. As discussed with Iskander & Karrus, gravity changes how you grow, but conserving heat is a reason many Ice World colonists are small and squat, and those on a desert are lean and stringy. Fat pads. Layers of fat start occuring in Ice World Colonists as a way to insulate heat,which is a common occurrence in all Animals in a cold environment. In hot environments this tends to be deposited around the bottocks, formally known as steatopygia. High Altitude adaptation. This is chiefly covered in the description of Scarvis. In high altitudes with a lower atmospheric pressure, adaptations to the respiratory and circulatory system occur to deal with the changes, with adaptations occurring for lower altitudes and higher pressures. The current misconception of mutations. So what can be done? Nothing can be done to avoid this without extensive costs which would render the cost of colonizing a planet as opposed to creating a station moot. These mutations are a cost of becoming a multi-planet species, and may in millennia result in multiple offshoots of humanity based on genetic lines. This has been a Dossier for those in Medical to know what to expect from dealing with Colonists. I hope this is of some use to the reader, especially for Colonials on how to understand their conditions. This is has been Susanne ó Conchobhair, FFRL Astronomy.

  5. Colonel Timothy Lancaster overlooking Caer Malley from inside his Chickenhawk Suit. Caer Malley has returned to Federal hands for the first time in over a month. Marauders from the 706th Marauder Legion, the so called Lancaster Legion, have finished the reconquest of Progenitor held land on the continent of Unuan with the aid of elements from Scarvis’ 93rd Recon elements. This culminated in the Battle for Caer Malley, which resulted in sections of one of the oldest Extra-Solar colonies’ Capital being flattened by small scale orbital bombardments. The offensive for the continent was only so successful due to the deployment en masse of the Chickenhawks, massive Marauder suits capable of bringing destruction over vast tracts of land at once, coupled with support from Scarvis’ significant engineer & tank elements. The continent of Unuan is the smallest of the nine on Hod though was considered politically the most important. With its recapture, the Operations Command has taken residence in the ruins and re-population efforts have already begun, despite there being significant hold ups on the other continents revolving around tectonic activity and significant Progenitor populations. Casualties for the recapture of Caer Malley were rather minimal due to the presence of over 9,000 Chickenhawks, taking a mere 400 casualties for the recapture of 6 million square miles of land.
  6. TRAPPIST-1 System One of the furthest laying colonies and one of the wettest, being a significant producer of water for the Federation. Its notable objects are Ulm & Novoid. Other objects within the system are TRAPPIST-1b, TRAPPIST-1c, TRAPPIST-1f, Scaich & Gráinne. The closest colonies currently recognized to the system are Fomalhaus (14.8ly away) and Cyrus Tarquin (Approx 15.2ly away). An animation of the orbit around the TRAPPIST-1 star, with colour coded orbits. Ulm An image captured of a Colonist standing next to the Federal flag during a convergence event. The only colonized planet in the system. Centre of water distillation & distribution in the system. It is 1e in terms of location. Low level irradiation on the surface, leaving the population in domed residences and underground in protected enclosures, increased vitamin D deficiencies caused by genetic defects, albinism and lower levels of melanin. The planet is bathed in a perpetual sunrise by an appearing pink sun on its bright side, it dominating a whole 3 degrees on the sky, compared to the 0.5 degrees of Sol or Luna on Earth. The planets as shown in the image captured above, would dominate the sky of the colony, appearing so large in appearance that someone standing on Ulm can see the continents of the planets clearly formed, without the need of binoculars or other enhancements in the case of its planetary neighbours. History of Ulm Colonized in 2275 by Chonchaire Water, it was chosen as the best choice for an initial settlement. Nominally part of the Federation, it has lacked much of the standard colonial incentives until post-civil war. During the Civil war, Ulm stayed neutral initially for fear of invasion from Sanctuary, however with the dawn of the Coalition and its proximity to Centauran space, it declared its allegiance to the Coalition, leading to shortages in some Sanctuary planets as water shipments did not arrive. With the dawn of 2298 it has been reinvigorated with the need for more water. The population is steadily growing and the Colony has started the process of making more permanent bases on the other planets. Its colonists are entitled to the standards of all civilians, though with the exception of not being allowed pets without a license to curb excess strain on the underground atmosphere systems. The population is 68,000 strong as of 01/09/2298, though is steadily rising. The colony is rather wealthy for its size due to the ruling government’s usage of its water production. By the end of 2298, the councillor and Governor of Ulm became Speaker of the Council, supporting Sky Marshal Cortez as the new replacement. Novoid. (Novoid as on Federal databases. ) Local Designation of 1d. No permanent population on its outposts, though there are temporary outposts. It has the most advanced xeno life in the system, though most of the wildlife is friendly towards humans, the most notorious being the Possuat, what is the number 1 pet on Ulm, surpassing Terran pets. 5% of its total mass is water, compared to 0.2% of Terra’s mass in the early 21st century. As such, to say it has water on the planet is a somewhat of an understatement. The singular continent has a plethora of animals and temporary bases for when colonials arrive to extract water, though there is no permanent population. Plans for a permanent colony are being proposed through the Federal Council, though with Operation Helios and Operation Salvation it is not a priority. This is it for the Dossier on the most important planets of TRAPPIST-1. This is a brief analysis for Intelligence and MI leadership on the system in the event of a pirate event.

    Operation Salvation Begins!

    The official counter attack on the heels of the sweeping victory in Sol begins today with some estimated 100,000 Infantry taking part with aerial and naval duties taking up predominantly by the reformed 7th ‘Praetorian’ Fleet. New companies such as the Tango Urillan 7th Light Morita’s “Rancors Ragnaroks” and 12th Morita’s “Horzon’s Horizons” are leading the charge, avid to gain experience on retaking a world before they return to their Arachnid infested homeworld. Major General Lucas Seacrest, Legion of Merit Recipient & leader in charge of Division East stated he was confident in the successful retaking of Hod though stressed that it would no longer be a large producer of food without “Significant resources” put into re-terraforming areas struck by large amounts of plasma. With the retaking of Sol and the mopup of the Progenitor threat, General Clement Stanley & Admiral James Akabane have requested limited assistance from elements of its sister 6th Fleet, though have stressed that they would be able to still perform without the assistance given. Further information is unknown, though the Major General in his interview stated that the Operation to reclaim Humanities’ second extrasolar colony is to take a month so that the Progenitors are “Destroyed root and branch.” Specialist elements attached to the AFC-DN683 ‘Cao Mengde’
