New Avalon Inquirer - JarnFolk Fleet Sucked into Black Hole!
« on: November 09, 2017, 01:02:09 PM »

Reliable sources indicate that the much-feared JarnFolk fleet was utterly destroyed when it strayed too close to a massive black hole in the Cartago Sector.

Back Hole G-10186 Helsen, called "Devil's Eye" by residents of the David System

A member of the David Planetary Militia provided us with the the below quote under the condition that he remain anonymous:

"We had the JarnFolk ships on long-range scan in the David System when they suddenly disappeared from all screens. The jump point they were at sometimes gets swept with debris stirred up by gravitic disturbances from Devil's Eye so it makes sense that the scum got caught up and sucked in." 

The New Avalon Inquirer is working to obtain photographic evidence of this catastrophe.

MoC command intercepted a brief transmission and then total silence from the entire JF fleet

Based upon data and extrapolation, flight path error caused the entire fleet to fly directly into a blackhole while trans-versing through a sector

The intercepted transmission reveals only what looks like a junior officer engaging in some excited impromptu celebration right after the flight adjustment was detected by intel agents and right before the transmission cut out...

Conspiracy theories cropping up all over the owa say they crash landed on a strange planet, inhabited by strange, technologically bankrupt bird/man species called the tetatae, whom they are busy subjucating.

Augustus Grim, Comstar News Network Lead Anchor: Greetings in the Holy Name of Blake. Comstar News Network has not received any reports which corroborate this so-called "Story". Further, our technical experts have released a report indicating that it is extremely unlikely that JarnFolk pilots would have made such a gross error in their course computations. A copy is provided below.


To: Precentor MU, Clive Reordan
Re: Astrogational analysis of JarnFolk Maneuvers near G-10186 Helsen (aka Devil's Eye)

In the Name of Blake - Astrogational and Intra-System Navigation Department Heads convened a meeting in which the series of simulations assigned to their departments were discussed. Without providing a detailed account of the meeting, I can summarise the discussions and in the Spirit of Blake the revered Precentor may find enlightenment.

In short, both the Intra-System Navigation and Astrogation Department Heads conclude that it is highly unlikely that any JarnFolk ships were lost in the gravitational field of Black Hole G-10186 Helsen, hereafter referred to as Devil's Eye. Below is an inventory of Facts established and agreed upon in the meeting.

Fact: JarnFolk pilots and navigators are regarded as being highly-skilled on average; they are capable of designing and executing high-risk trajectories when needed, especially in a military engagement, but the circumstances in the Cartago System do not seem to provide a basis for the entire JarnFolk Expeditionary Force to select a trajectory that would take them dangerously close to Devil's Eye.

Fact: Had a significant number of JarnFolk Jumpships and Dropships been pulled into the event horizon of Devil's Eye, systems at the HPG station on Cartago Prime would have detected related gravitic disturbances; indeed software at a major HPG station regularly monitors for and corrects for these disturbances as they can create packet loss and reduction in bandwidth if not accounted for. System logs do not show any significant gravity wave compensation adjustments processed during the period immediately following the disappearance of the JarnFolk ships.

Fact: In the history of modern star travel there are only two recorded instances of ships being lost to a Black Hole; in one of the cases the loss was the result of an emergency K-F jump that was made by a merchant ship fleeing pirates. In the other case a SLDF warship engaged in a fleet action near a Black Hole lost it's capacity to maneuver due to battle damage, was captured by tidal forces and eventually pulled in. Neither of these scenarios bear any resemblance to the conditions in the Cartago System when the JarnFolk fleet was lost to sensors.
