Omegaton, the Federal Empire's official logistics company, will be placing auction orders for large quantities of components in an effort to supply colonies experiencing acute technology shortages.
However, Genesis Star CEO Maximilian Wolfe says the initiative is anything but generous, claiming the import-dependent colonies are being forced into a monopoly arrangement.
"No other importer can get near those planets," said Wolfe. "The Imperial Navy's got them surrounded. Only Omegan freighters are allowed in."
The accusations were flatly denied by Tiberius Calderon, the Consul appointed by Omegaton to facilitate the initiative on Calypso.
"The Genois will say anything to discredit their competitors. It's pathetic," said Calderon.
Consul Tiberius Calderon will place auction orders for the following industrial components starting Feb. 28, 2020:

  • Simple 4 Conductors - 12000 PED
  • Simple 3 Conductors - 60000 PED
  • Simple 2 Conductors - 160000 PED
  • Simple 3 Plastic Springs - 90000 PED
  • Simple 2 Plastic Springs - 112000 PED
  • Simple 3 Plastic Ruds - 17000 PED
  • Simple 2 Plastic Ruds - 110000 PED
  • Hardened Metal Ruds - 30000 PED
  • Basic Filters - 50000 PED
  • Basic Sensor - 22000 PED
  • Basic Structure - 45000 PED
  • Standard Matrix - 50000 PED
  • Standard Plate - 25000 PED
  • High Performance Engine - 15000 PED
  • Electropositive Processor - 10000 PED
  • Reinforced Bearings - 10000 PED
  • Heavy Duty Core - 10000 PED

Omegaton is offering the following additional incentives to spur the procurement effort:

  • For each component listed above, 100 PED will be awarded to the colonist who makes the largest contribution to fulfilling Calderonís orders for that particular component.
  • 1000 PED will be awarded to the colonist who contributes the most total Trade Terminal value, of any combination of components listed above, to fulfilling Calderonís auction orders.

Omegaton will place orders until the total Trade Terminal values listed above have been successfully purchased. Note that all of the orders listed above may not be active on the auction at the same time. Some components may be purchased using multiple orders; however there will still be only one 100 PED reward per component. A single colonist can qualify for multiple rewards.
Any intentional disruption or manipulation of the auction order process will be investigated.
