This is the SECOND CHAPTER, ACT 3 of Aurora's (tracked) story.
Zeng-Hu Pharmaceuticals points fingers at MICHAEL FROST! In a sudden twist, the megacorporation has declared that former admiral and current prime minister of the Sol Alliance Michael Frost is responsible for coaxing them into starting the Clandestine Incident!
Alliance officials have presented themselves again, stating the solution to synthesize more phoron has been found!
This is the SECOND CHAPTER, ACT 2 of Aurora's (tracked) story.
After the destruction of the Clandestine asteroid, now coined as the “Clandestine Incident,” the galaxy is plunged into disorder. While Tau Ceti remains a steady bastion of hope, this marks the beginning of an unprecedented scarcity of the galactic lifeblood - Phoron. Deposits everywhere have begun to dwindle, and as things drift to a halt, NanoTrasen must dig themselves out of the hole they’re in - or else, all will suffer.
This is the SECOND CHAPTER, ACT ONE of Aurora's (tracked) story.
The phoron deposit 66832 “Clandestine” asteroid discovered by Republic surveyors was expected to fall into the hands of NanoTrasen as is typical with trace phoron deposits in the Romanovich Cloud. However, shortly after an auction was being prepared by a nearby station’s (the NSS Aurora) crew, the asteroid exploded violently - a chain phoron reaction sent the entire deposit into a catastrophic explosion visible across the system.
To make matters worse, the Mendell City Bugle reported that NanoTrasen officials have indicated this was the last major phoron deposit in Tau Ceti. The fate of the Republic hangs in the balance as the phoron scarcity escalates, and NanoTrasen stocks plummet!
Meanwhile, Sol promises its own safety in the scarcity! Stay tuned for updates on this chaotic matter, as the galaxy devolves!
This is the SECOND CHAPTER, ACT ZERO PART 4 of Aurora's (tracked) story.
EINSTEIN ENGINES MAKES ITS MOVE! The first megacorporation has made major moves against NanoTrasen with a new engine making its way to headlines! As well, they have begun their first, vile moves of espionage - attacking Hephaestus assets on the NSS Aurora! Will Einstein Engines climb its way to the top again, or are these moves its finale?
This is the SECOND CHAPTER, ACT ZERO PART 3 of Aurora's (tracked) story.
GUS MALDARTH ASSASSINATED! In a shocking turn of events, Einstein Engines has reportedly made its first major moves in the scarcity by seeing Gus Maldarth executed! Despite the corporation vehemently denying anything of the sort, NanoTrasen insists legal action will be taken for these events!
Due to RL complications, this portion of the arc was poorly catalogued! If confused, contact the responsible lore developers.
This is the SECOND CHAPTER, ACT ZERO PART 2 of Aurora's (tracked) story.
UNREST IN THE SOL ALLIANCE! Centuries of rule over many areas of the Solarian Alliance has rapidly begun to dwindle! After a Coalition agent by the name of Gus Maldarth uprooted and revealed that the Alliance intended to place the Outer Ring under military rule until the end of the phoron shortage, widespread civil unrest has broken out! As colonies across the Outer Rim fall into chaos, the Sol Alliance finds itself more and more taxed militarily...
This is the SECOND CHAPTER of Aurora's (tracked) story.
The Sol Alliance has begun its final decline. In this chapter, the galactic stage will be set for chaos as the largest player in the Orion Spur crumbles. Will the megacorporations elevate to become Humanity’s foremost authority? Will the Coalition take advantage of their sole adversary’s collapse? What will happen to Tau Ceti?
One thing is certain: this chapter will alter any concept of the modern starmap as a whole. More importantly, this is the transition arc for the NBT (Next Big Thing) which, at an undetermined point within the arc, will be finalized and begin.
Meanwhile, Phoron begins to grow scarce - deposits across the galaxy are dwindling, especially under Nanotrasen Corporation control…
This act will last indefinitely until the preparations for the arc, and the Next Big Thing are finished.
This is the FIRST CHAPTER of Aurora's (tracked) story.
In Chapter one, the Prelude, the Orion Spur is in a state of relative peace! There are many happenings currently on the decline that will ultimately coalesce into the finale arc of the current setting, transitioning from the NSS Aurora, to the NCV Aurora - the station setting to the ship setting respectively.
There is currently no galactic narrative at large - lore is presently working free of any cooperative story being told. Stay tuned for changes to this - every update to the Lore Hub will be chronicled in the lore diary.
Important note : There was a very long time before "chapters" were utilized to summarize Aurora lore. As a result, a lot of lore was built or made before this system was. The relevant arcs for the year predating the system, however, have been logged below.
