Year 13, Day 163 – KROCTAR, Kroctar Central
Today members of Outland Mining Corporation are in celebration following the near-completion of works on the newly discovered planet Kroctar.
Mining Leader Qing Loh discovered the uninhabited Kroctar System on Year 13 Day 141 at 17:53. He formed part of a two-man search team assembled by Outland Mining Corporation and headed by Scout Messi Defoe. Detailed technical analysis of existing star charts allowed the search to be triangulated to a very narrow region of less than one hundred possible coordinates which were subsequently investigated by the duo.
Immediately Outland Mining Corporation set about colonising the planet in order to take advantage of its mineral riches. Within one week all administrative and governmental functions of the planet were under its control and 56% of the viable land surface remained open to Outland’s expanding operations.
Outland’s CEO Rick Alano talked briefly about others who had settled on the planet. “We are very happy to work with others who wish to settle on Kroctar and call it their home. Many sentients have already reached agreement with us and we encourage any others who haven’t yet to come forward.”
Work has also begun on a comprehensive shield grid covering the planet surface, securing the planet now and into the future. For security reasons the exact details about locations of shield generators and their estimated completion times have not been released, though one official commented that work would conclude “soon.”
With Outland at the helm, the economic future of the Kroctar system and the Shataum sector will be secure for generations to come and the brave inhabitants of this new world are sure to reap the benefits of heavy investment in the planet in coming years.
