    Universal Cartographics has updated the names of fifteen systems in the Witch Head enclave.
    Cynthia Sideris, chair of Universal Cartographics, elaborated on the development:
    "Last year's colonisation efforts resulted in a number of new settlements in the region, and providing systems with less unwieldy appellations is of great benefit to explorers. For example, 'the Wisanye system' rolls off the tongue much more agreeably than 'the Witch Head Sector FB-X c1-7 system'."
    "We are confident that these more personable memorable terms will be welcomed by the Witch Head community."
    The Witch Head enclave is currently experiencing a number of Thargoid incursions, prompting local factions to call for assistance.

    A series of Thargoid incursions into human-occupied Witch Head systems has alarmed the region's colonists. Multiple casualties have been reported, with pilots caught off-guard by the sudden increase in Thargoid ships.
    The Thargoids had largely withdrawn from the Witch Head enclave following a heavy defeat in July 3305. Following a significant increase in Thargoid activity, Professor Alba Tesreau of Aegis Research offered the following comments to Vox Galactica:
    "Regrettably, the Thargoids were unlikely to surrender this area of space after a single defeat. Humanity may have established the Witch Head enclave, but the Thargoids are clearly still intent on driving us out – particularly with so many barnacle sites in the region."
    With starports at considerable risk of assault, local authorities are hopeful that a defence force can be organised soon. A number of independent pilots have already

    End-of-year celebrations have concluded in the Reorte system, with organisers declaring the week a grand success.
    Deliveries by independent pilots ensured that the needs of the billion-plus attendees were met. Meanwhile, agitators in the system were prevented from intercepting convoys or causing trouble.
    Prime Minister Edmund Mahon offered this statement:
    "I'd like to express my gratitude and appreciation to everybody involved in the festivities, from interstellar traders to revellers on the streets. Now, as goods are packed away and sensory experience hubs are dismantled all across Home, the clean-up efforts begin. It has been a real honour to witness so many come together in Reorte."
    "On behalf of the Alliance Assembly, I wish everybody a most prosperous New Year."
    Pilots who took part in either campaign can now obtain their rewards from Davies High in the Reorte system.

    Following months of setbacks, the Holloway Biology Centre has finally opened in the Colonia system. The research centre will focus on the study of newly catalogued lifeforms.
    Dr Roy Casimir, chief researcher at the Holloway Bioscience Institute, held a press conference at the opening ceremony, and discussed the delays that followed a successful campaign to found the centre in February this year:
    "Our study of the lifeforms discovered over the past year formed the basis of the research centre's designs. As the volume of scans provided by the galactic community continued to grow, it became apparent that we lacked the laboratory space required to study it all."
    "As a result, the Holloway Bioscience Institute committed to several months of investment and redesign, to ensure that a wide variety of material could be analysed. We are confident that this decision will prove more than worthwhile, and

    The agronomic treatment recently developed by the Interstellar Association for Agriculture has proven effective against the devastating crop blight.
    The treatment was distributed as part of an initiative focusing on the Diso and Orerve systems. Planetside farming communities in both systems are beginning to recover from severe crop damage.
    Dr Genevieve Kane of the Interstellar Association for Agriculture gave this statement to the media:
    "Thanks to the heroic efforts of the galactic community, we can confirm that the agronomic treatment performs superbly on infected farmland. The counteragent eliminated the mutated blight pathogen within hours, facilitating the recovery of living crops."
    "Therefore, the IAA can confidently state that the immediate threat of food shortages has been alleviated, with food deliveries replenishing lost stocks. Mass production of the agronomic treatment has already
