Year 14, Day 223 marked a historic occasion in the long-standing alliance between the Hapes Consortium and the Trade Federation. Trade Federation Viceroy Jacob Jansen made his first official state visit to the planet of his birth since assuming the position of Viceroy. Viceroy Jansen, selected members of the Trade Federation Cabinet, and a coterie of diplomats from the Trade Federation Department of External Affairs were greeted by King Alex Tylger and his selected advisors upon landing on Hapes itself.
Department of Trade Announces Grand Opening
Ministry of Production


The Trade Federation logo beams from holoprojectors positioned afront the announcement represent. Fading, the over-illuminated dais darkens to a comfortable light, revealing the newly appointed Director of Trade, Tanez Kalrade, with several other Department officials in attendance. Commanding the floor, an official motions to the various dignitaries, officials, and reporters that the speech is soon to begin.

The Director takes to the dais, quickly leafing prepared notes as the talking dies down; "Welcome sentients, I hope you are all comfortable. Before we begin I'd like to thank you all for coming today. The reason for this announcement from the Department of Trade today, is to inform the galaxy that preparations undertaken to reform the Trade Federation Market in accordance with the Federation's recent declaration of this department, have been completed."

"Staff and management have been working feverishly to ensure that everything planned for the opening day could in-fact be delivered upon, a mammoth task which they completed effectively, and on time."

"The Department can also announce that in accordance with the 'Empire of Trade' policy, various private enterprises were invited, and have accepted to join the Trade Federation Market as vendors, becoming the first such companies to sell their wares along with the Federation's nationalised industries aboard the Markerplate."

The Director motions to various persons and the holoprojectors luminate, beaming these logos ahead of the dais;



Director Kalrade acknowledges, and the projectors once again fade.

"With these joint-ventures in place the Federation will see to it that the benefits are felt not only by us, but the Galaxy at large."

"It will be in the coming months and beyond our goal to make the Trade Federation and affiliates, the foremost traders in the Galaxy. And with the affiliates we have chosen in this endeavour, I am sure that we will succeed. Any corporations interested in joining this neutral sales opportunity should contact me directly. This press release has concluded, any question may be taken through to the #TF-Traders lounge where I will join you shortly. Thank you."
Senior Leadership Change
Office of the Viceroy

TFNN - Taanab, Zeemacht Cluster

In an unprecedented moment in Trade Federation history, Trade Federation Viceroy Jacob Jansen announced today the appointment of Duceroy Olwin Froon as Regent, succeeding the retired Bub`ba Lou. Speaking of Regent Froon, "There is no other man who deserves this appointment more. His work and leadership of the Federation is invaluable," said the Viceroy, flanked by his entire Cabinet in a live address to the entire Federation.

After Regent Froon thanked the Viceroy and stepped down off the dais, Viceroy Jansen announced that Nohv Schiller will replace Regent Froon as Duceroy of the Trade Federation, allowing the newly appointed Regent to assist the Viceroy with overall strategy and direction of the colossal government of trade. The newly appointed Duceroy Schiller will focus on the day to day management of the government. These positions differ from one another in both daily duties and as they fit into the line of succession. Although the Regent is second to the Viceroy in prestige and is the first successor should the Viceroy resign or fall, the Regent is not the official second-in-command. The Duceroy is the second-in-command while the Regent is in more of a supporting role to the Viceroy. Still, the position holds enormous authority and respect within the Federation, as the sentient holding the title is likely to be the next Viceroy.

As he shook hands with the Viceroy, Duceroy Schiller took the podium announcing yet another shift in command, this time relating to the Ministry of the Interior. "My appointment to Duceroy naturally leaves the position of Minister of the Interior open. The Cabinet was quick to appoint my successor. I am honored to promote Director Metyl Onyx to the position of Minister of the Interior."

Minister Onyx previously served as Director of Industry and Advisor to the Cabinet. His appointment is no shock as he has been the leading contender for a ministerial promotion for some time now, given the long list of distinguished accomplishments in both the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Production. Lord Onyx was previously pulled from his role as Director of Manufacturing by the Viceroy himself after seeing his command potential.

The Duceroy finished his conference with the promotions of Marcus Justinian and Marco Salo. Marcus Justinian, who serves as Director of Logistics, will support Lord Onyx as Deputy Minister of the Interior. Marco Salo was promoted from his current position as the Deputy Director of Logistics to Director of Logistics. Both are well deserved promotions to men who command the trust and loyalty of the Logistics Corps, the largest department of the Trade Federation.

Viceroy Jansen finished the ceremony by pinning updated rank insignia on the newly promoted sentients to the raucous applause of the assembled crowd.
Retirement of Regent Bub`ba Lou
Office of the Viceroy



TFNN - Taanab, Zeemacht Cluster

In a short, low-key announcement today, Trade Federation Viceroy Jacob Jansen has announced the retirement of longtime Regent Bub`ba Lou. "It is a sad day for me to announce the retirement of my good friend of many years. Our paths intertwined back at the creation of the Confederate Mining Corporation where Buba'Lou was quickly appointed to CEO. I was quick to pick up on his command potential and in no time, he was leading the Federation at my side. I can easily credit the current structure we dominate with today to his design. His retirement is well deserved, yet I await the day he returns."



Lou was named Regent on Day 187 of Year 11, less than a week after he stepped down from the position of Duceroy due to increasing family obligations and two months after previous Regent Centauri Tyridius stepped down for similar reasons. Bub`ba Lou's first leadership position was as second-in-command of Confederate Mining Corporation during Marco Salo's tenure as CEO. Lou was promoted to CEO and later Minister of the Interior before being nominated to the position of Duceroy, a capacity in which he served with distinction for years.

Lou was unavailable for comment regarding the end of his official service to the Trade Federation. In a short conference Duceroy Olwin Froon commented. "He has fulfilled his duty to the Viceroy and the Trade Federation, that's for sure. He looked tired, worn out... old. Hell, even the joints of his armor were squeaking."

An informal, anonymous poll of Trade Federation government officials revealed an overwhelming amount of support for the outgoing Regent, reflected in this comment from a member of the Ministry of the Interior: "After all he's done for the Trade Federation, the guy has more than earned a peaceful retirement."

Trade Federation
Viceroy Aims To Strengthen Trading Community
Trade Federation


TFNN - Taanab, Zeemacht Cluster

In a short broadcast earlier today from the Trade Federation Capitol Building in the city of Forsetti, Federation Viceroy Jacob Jansen announced a new endeavor to strengthen ties among the galaxy's fragmented trading groups, known as the Trade Federation Citizen Program. The Viceroy described the Federation's new plan in the following statement:

"The Trade Federation strives to be an open government standing for free trade and the basic freedom to operate a business and prosper in an increasingly complex galactic economy. Through our new program, we will recognize honorable traders of the galaxy by offering the support of the powerful economic engine of the Trade Federation. In doing so, the Federation Cabinet has elected to grant citizen status to galactic residents who fit the higher standards set to traders by the Trade Federation."

A press release from the Office of the Viceroy issued after Viceroy Jansen's address fleshed out further details of the Program. The Program will contain three distinct levels: an entry level for people just getting to know the Trade Federation, full citizenship, and a separate honorary citizenship for unparalleled contributors to the greatness of the Trade Federation. The entry level grants greater access to Trade Federation civilian communications networks and offers a 5% discount on products publicly sold by Trade Federation businesses. The full citizenship level, granted to those with "a long and trustworthy relationship with the Trade Federation, includes the full government employee discount on public sale goods as well as access to the internal Intergalactic Relay Chat room frequented by many Federation government members in their off-duty hours. The highest level is reserved for honored citizens who are pillars of Trade Federation society. Honorary citizenships are only granted by the Trade Federation Cabinet. All other citizenship applications are handled by the five-member Citizenship Approval Board, which is responsible for running the program.

This new program boasts the potential to bring more people, relationships, business networking opportunities, and revenue to the Trade Federation and its citizens. Citizenship Approval Board member and Director of Resources, Pat Rulla, said that "the Approval Board has had several requests mentioning that it's a good thing that a galactic trader can have a TF citizenship, related to our neutrality and the ability to trade with all parties in the galaxy." Even after only being officially neutral for a short time, Citizenship in the Trade Federation has begun to take on a certain prestige that is attractive to previously unaffiliated entities.

Another government official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, was quoted as saying: "We are all very excited for the potential that the Citizenship Program will have. We have already received a flurry of applications from various well-known galactic entrepreneurs, such as Dac Kain, and former Trade Federation government officials who wish to maintain close ties with us without rejoining the government itself, including former Viceroys Horley Cyan and Bren Morgarr. Our policy is to welcome anyone who believes in honorable, profitable free enterprise, as befits our neutral political stance. The popularity of the Citizenship Program so far is impressive and has everyone involved very excited for the future."

Anyone who is interested in learning more about the Citizenship Program or who would like to fill out an application form should visit the Trade Federation Holosite.

Honor, Integrity and Profit
Trade Federation

TFNN - Taanab, Zeemacht Cluster

The Trade Federation logo is visible for a short time on the holoprojector screen, then slowly fades. Captions appear, revealing the source of the transmission as the Media Room in the Capitol Building in the city of Forsetti, the seat of power for the Trade Federation.

A consecutive series of indiscernible, randomly-blinking red dots eventually becomes apparent as the uniquely distinct function lights of Super Battle Droids on perimeter guard in the brightly lit room. As the holocamera focuses on the dais, the Trade Federation Cabinet is seated in front of a large window looking out upon the capital city.

All murmurs and utterances from the invited press gallery subside in anticipation as Trade Federation Viceroy Jacob Jansen steps forward, datapad of notes in hand, and activates a microphone. After a small pause, he begins.

"I thank you all for your attendance this morning. I would like to make a brief announcement regarding a decision that my Cabinet and I have reached regarding the political direction that the Trade Federation will be taking henceforth. Obviously this decision will have some fairly...significant ramifications in political arenas directly involved with the Trade Federation Government and consequently extends beyond those boundaries due to the nature of such a decision. Therefore I felt it was appropriate to invite all the associated press to cover what could only be described as a turning point in the history of the Federation.

First off, I would like to say that by no means has this decision been taken lightly, this issue has been the subject of a considerable amount of quite lengthy debate for some time now within the Cabinet.

We, the Trade Federation, through the legislative power granted to the Cabinet through the Articles of Federacy, have chosen to follow a Neutral political stance to further enhance the ability of the Federation to uphold our fundamental ideology of Honor, Integrity and Profit; and subsequently, endeavor to enhance the ability of the Federation to distance itself from galactic conflict through increased multilateral economic and diplomatic relations.

The Trade Federation has undoubtedly enjoyed membership within the Imperial Union. It has been a positive and economically prosperous experience since our induction into the Union late in Year 9 and we will hold many fond memories of the friendship that was extended towards us, and the security granted as a major participant within the Union. We hope that the Trade Federation had a reciprocal effect towards our former Union allies and thank them for the experience. This Imperial Union era was historic in itself and will always remain a significant time for the Trade Federation as we look forward to continued mutual respect towards our galactic neighbors.

Briefly I would like to reinforce the main reason behind this landmark decision. While there has been some turbulence within the Imperial Union, it also acted as the evidential catalyst that allowed us to redeem our heritage and address our future aspirations. In essence it comes down to our basic fundamentals and perhaps the best explanation can be given by simply quoting an extract of the original Trade Federation Articles of Confederation, which existed well before my reign as Viceroy and the amended Articles of Federacy.

'We, the traders of the galaxy come together to form a Federation that protects the rights of traders and provide a safe haven for the honest traders and peoples of the galaxy. We form this Federation with a great spirit of tenacity in order to become a sovereign government within this galaxy. Furthermore we reserve the right to be a free standing government without any external influence, free of persecution and coercion and remain a neutral force in any war, offering all participants, equal opportunities to take advantage of Trade Federation services.'

For those that may wish to dissect any parts of that statement as contradictory for the purpose of sensationalism, I would like to point out that we in fact have always reserved the right to neutrality, it was never revoked nor forfeited, merely not enacted by our own free will. At this juncture we now feel that the best economic and political growth for the Trade Federation will be through a once-again neutral stance and seek to establish enhanced diplomatic and trade relations with all governments and factions across the galaxy, expanding beyond the focus that self-imposed Imperialism entailed.

Any relevant inquiries regarding this decision or interest in our invitation may be pursued through the usual diplomatic channels. Thank you for this opportunity to clarify the situation to those interested parties."

Viceroy Jansen smiles as he approaches his Cabinet, shaking hands as they are extended from each now standing Ministers, then turns around to face the assembly as the image fades.
Order of the Viceroy Awarded!
Office of the Viceroy



Today I am honored and privileged to bestow the rarest of medals. So rare, only one other has received this reward since its creation.

The Order of the Viceroy is awarded to any person who has distinguished himself or herself by extraordinary achievement. The performance must be evidenced by voluntary action above and beyond the call of duty. The extraordinary achievement must have resulted in an accomplishment so exceptional and outstanding as to clearly set the individual apart from his or her comrades or from other persons in similar circumstances. The Order of the Viceroy Confers Lordship, However only Members of the Trade Federation are eligible for this award. Only the Trade Federation Viceroy can award this honor.






Our Director of Industry, Metyl Onyx has done so much for the Trade Federation a list would be far too long to post. But some of his more notable accomplishments would be management of our territory development. Metyl has been the primary architect for pretty much every planet side construction for the last few years as well as our current raw material footwork. He has and continues to manages the search for new territory which has already had success. I am speaking of the addition of New Apsolon to our empire. He spends many hours assisting with whatever needs to be done. Some of his work is very time consuming and I won't lie. Some of it is pretty boring. Yet he gets it done without complaint nor delay. He participates in many departments and sections of the Empire. Always doing his best. There is nothing else I could ask .

The list is endless and his contribution to the Federation is essential and irreplaceable.

For this, I Viceroy of the Trade Federation award Director Metyl Onyx The Order of the Viceroy. From this moment forward, you shall be addressed as Lord Metyl Onyx!

Congratulations Lord Onyx!

New Protectorate: Katana Fleet
Trade Federation


On Day 259 of the Year 13, after numerous diplomatic missions and a long-standing partnership, a Protectorate Act was signed between the Katana Fleet's leader and owner Draith Shadux and the Trade Federation Cabinet. This act is a military as well as an economical partnership, and is only granted to a select few factions, who have proven themselves as allies of the Federation.

Draith Shadux, Hierarch of the Katana Fleet, former member of the Trade Federation's Ministry of Defense and also a Lord of the Evocati, has always been very loyal to the Federation. The Cabinet is pleased to be able to expand our relations with the Katana Fleet through this act.

Given its status as a protectorate, the Katana Fleet is granted access to the Trade Federation holonetwork and its members are able to participate in all activities on it. The faction itself is allowed to request funds from the treasury as well as assistance from the Federation and its numerous departments. Anything from starships, droids and equipment to purchasing raw materials from the Department of Resources (Commerce Guild). Through this Act the Trade Federation military pledges to protect the Katana Fleet, should the need arise.
In return the Fleet may assist the Trade Federation in a number of activities, as they come up and as are agreed on between the two factions.
In the end, this is all about expanding relations and helping out friends.

The Katana Fleet is the third faction to sign a Protectorate Act with the Trade Federation. Joining the ranks with MedTech Industries and the Corporate Alliance - our first and second protectorates respectively.
I would like to welcome the Katana Fleet to our family and hope much good is to come between us.
