Operation Phoenix Nest

“Behold the flame of the Phoenix…and fear its wrath of sadness. Go forth my brothers, for you are the wings of the Phoenix…burn the heretics, and cleanse the soul of this Empire!” – Joma Yurk, Prophet and Historian (Kor-Azor).

Operation Phoenix Nest is now upon the OEC. While we have prepared dutifully during the previous off time…no plan really survives ‘first contact’ with the enemy. Our move into the Fountain Core region has not gone unnoticed by the local corporations and alliances that lay claim here. Celestial Apocalypse and Foundation have been the main targets. While we are not looking for any sovereignty, we are looking to enforce the peace for those that actually lay claim to the region. Evolution Corporation has been a long time friend of the OEC since before CONCORD authorized pod pilots to the heavens. In fact, we have many former OEC pilots in the ranks of Evolution this very day.

Band of Brothers alliance has laid claim to this area of the Cluster, and by our opinion…we shall help them enforce this claim in return for us being allowed to re-base in the area. Almost 4 years ago, Evolution, Xanadu, and OEC started the first military operations in the area that eventually formed the Fountain Alliance. While we went our separate ways afterwards, the friendship was always there…even when we traded laser fire across the Eve Cluster due to area of operations and contracts.

We hope to rebuild our once powerful industrial base to eventually support a decent Capital Ship fleet. We cannot do this anywhere other than the safety of zero security space. Being a Mercenary Corporation does not mean total neutrality, unlike some would like to believe…it deals with way more than just combat. We must put ourselves in position to grow stronger to obtain larger contracts. With the Eve Cluster moving rapidly towards capital fleet warfare, our small tactic focus must also change.

We are actively engaging a NBSI policy in the Region at this time….and will not be doing any Mercenary work until Q2 of this year.

The fighting is only going to intensify…and if the storm growing in the North decides to blow this way…we shall be in the fight for our lives.
