Still early days for the cider collective, our economy is on the rise, having been in positive figures for the entire year now. The first trade routes have been established with our Terran neighbours, with more en route to the Iconians, and our advanced mining facilities will soon be in operation.

The production of defensive units has seen our military rating rise to 84, not ideal, but better than nothing. It has still lead to threats from the Arceans and Iconians, though. At this stage I’m not expecting them to come charging through the Terran space encircling us with attack fleets, but that hasn’t stopped me sending our new Cider Infiltrators out to watch the borders. Hopefully establishing trade routes with them will help matters.


The year of trade.

Four routes now open with the Iconians and Terrans, strengthening our relationship. Researching trade and logistics technologies will allow us to build long distance freighters to setup routes with the Arceans, which should calm them down a bit, and,hopefully, stop their ridiculous threats.


Despite improving relations and trade routes, the Iconians declared war in May, and a month later the first troop transports were spotted leaving their territory for the heart of The Collective.

Research was redirected to armour in the hope of setting up a nice wall for them to run into, but it looked like they’d get to our planets before that could be complete. Our current Phoenix class attack ships were scrambled to engage them on the border, but despite taking heavy losses the Iconians pushed through and closed on Tecnovikonia. It was only through spending a substantial amount of my credit reserves that I was able to hastily assemble a second wave of defenders that finally managed to bring halt the Iconian advance.

Another attack like that could be enough to seize a planet or two, next year is the year to take defense very seriously.
