Operation IDA

Station_Attack_The_Oracle.png

Stations in the Pleiades are burning!
The Thargoids attacked and
rescues were completed.
Yet the stations still remain offline...
Our goal is to fix them!

 
 

Operation Ida is a joint initiative welcoming commanders from any group, faction, or power. We are open to all players that are willing to participate peacefully in this operation.

Make no mistake: this is a huge undertaking. Most of the stations we are aiming to repair require hundreds of thousands, if not millions of tons of supplies to repair. Even before the stations were attacked, the quality of infrastructure in the Pleiades region wasn't optimal. With the removal of these damaged stations commodities can be hard to find or require 200LY+ trips to acquire. 

This great challenge is not without its rewards though. Every station that is brought back online is a huge win for the galactic community - not to mention another potential source of supplies to be used for continued repairs.

Many argue that what humanity does best is go to
war, and there certainly is ample evidence for that. But
there is also a massive and growing body of evidence
that humanity’s true strength lies in our ability to band
together against apparently insurmountable odds,
and pool our collective efforts to achieve something
astounding. The pilots of Operation IDA and the other
groups tirelessly shuttling materials to the wounded
stations are proof positive of this resolve.
