|New war front: War has recently begun between the Bug/Vedin alliance and the Maera/Mycelium alliance. The M&M alliance ended the initial NAP properly, but then began the war by ruthlessly attacking some of the unarmed Mole Crickets in their space. The remaining Mole Crickets have vowed to remain hidden and faithful to their duties and continue to gather data on all races.|
Technology: Wormhole lockdown technology has continued to work extremely well, with the wormhole near Rogers remaining in position for about 12 years, while seemingly being extremely volatile.
More on technology: MT Attraction technology, which seemed to be working when it was first used, has continued to call MTs carrying technology levels no longer useful to the Bugs. It is rumored that the device is malfunctioning and cannot be shut down.
Failed objectives: More than 10 years before the war with M&M started, it was projected that there would be a war, and funding was obtained for building a cloaked fleet to attack the Maera home planet and the mineral fountain that was starting production. Recently that fleet struck a mine straying from the edge of a minefield, and the resulting explosions destroyed many of the support ships in the fleet. This also caused some debris, which allowed the M&Ms to track and find the fleet. The mining ships of the Maera have been dispersed to multiple planets to keep them safe. The Maera home planet has been filled with hundreds of other ships to keep it safe. The great great great grandchildren of the navigators of this fleet (all 12,825,364 of them) will be executed for the failure.
Food Supply: The Eagle and Lurkers which had provided an excellent food supply for the growth of Bug colonies have almost been eliminated. The Eagles apparently have no planets left, and the Lurkers only two planets. The Bugs are looking for additional food supplies.
Political: Since the Ellurid/Sofian alliance failed in their attacks against some Lacon planets years ago, there has been relative peace between the Bugs and Ellurids and Sofians. Recently however the Ellurids and Sofians destroyed a well populated planet near Ellurid/Sofian space with packets of minerals. The Bugs responded by attacking many bases to knock down any mass drivers, to keep Bug planets safe in multiple areas. Bug forces were surprised in two cases however, by attack from two large Ellurid and Sofian fleets, and two smaller attacking Bug fleets were destroyed. It is widely surmised that the Bug scouts should have been able to detect and follow these fleets. Discussion in the Bug Council is still centered on determining why the information was not available or presently properly. The 56,633,902 widows and orphans of the dead crews are demanding answers.
Charity: The annual fun(d) raiser to feed starving Fornaxian orphans will be held at the recently re-inhabited Moonbeam system this year. All peace loving races are invited to attend. Food will be provided but please bring your own life support. Extra support is needed this year as new orphanages are being built.
Signing out for now,
Long-brown-legs-with-green-spots, Chief Mole Cricket.
