Early today the Free Captains of the Star Fraction completed the deployment and establishment of a Minmatar Service Outpost (TAZ Norlonto) in YWS0-Z system, Providence.

This marks the end of a week long period of logistical preparation and material acquisition that concluded shortly before 12:00 am local time with a flotilla of Fraction freighters being bridged from the JFS- Black Plan, directly to the build site at Planet III, YWSO-Z system, where a mixed Battleship and Carrier group protected operations up to the initiation of Station power and defensive shielding coming online.

The construction of a nullsec outpost is a significant accomplishment for any alliance and it is right at this point to give thanks to the sterling efforts of those Free Captains who donated funds and material, helped with the transit and deployment, or otherwise provided security and military force to protect the vulnerable build stages. This is a proud moment for the Freespace movement and we are happy to announce the opening of the first Freeport in New Providence.

The establishment of TAZ Norlonto demonstrates our clear intention to invest in infrastructural improvements on the frontier, thereby supporting and encouraging the free use of 0.0 space by neutral-commerce in the months to come. We believe free commerce is its own reward and is the progressive choice for capsuleer development of resources and influence in the wider Star Cluster.

TAZ Norlonto will operate entirely by Freespace principles and will be open to anyone of neutral or positive standings to the Star Fraction without restriction. The on-site refinery array will be improved and perfected in the weeks and months to come and it is our hope that the station will become a vital hub of commercial and industrial activity and bring prosperity and growth to this once neglected star system. We invite any and all free-minded entrepreneurs and adventurers to come and experience YWS0-Z system and make use of the market hub and facilities here.

Originally by: STATION INFORMATION NOTICE

TAZ Norlonto is a Temporary Autonomous Zone operated by The Star Fraction.

Existing as an anarchist freeport on the frontier of the Outer Regions, TAZ Norlonto welcomes free traders, explorers, radical philosophers and revolutionary fighters for business and pleasure.

Terms of Business

Neutral and Friendly Traffic may dock free of charge with open fitting access.
Repair and medical services available to neutrals at standard charges.
Refinery service charge to neutrals 5%
Discounts on service charges are available to friendly organisations.
Offices by arrangement with station management subject to availability.

Note: If you cannot dock at this TAZ then you are considered hostile by the Star Fraction. Anyone who wishes to query this should contact Star Fraction diplomats.


***

On a cautionary note, be aware that though The Star Fraction respect our neutral guests and friends, there are many other entities currently operating in Providence with alternative rules of engagement, including those aligned with the previous slaver regime and we advise due care and attention always when considering transit arrangements. Use scouts, use navigational aids, use covert jump-bridging, use strategic cruisers and blockade runners - where possible Free Captains of the Fracton will be happy to teach you how to avoid regressive road-blockers in space. Fly smart dont be a victim!

The Star Fraction respects the individual sovereignty of all neutral entities and will not involve ourselves in 3rd party disputes unless our shipping and infrastructure is directly attacked. Neutrals are free to utilize the assets and wealth of YWS0-Z as they see fit, and may anchor starbase towers and equipment freely at any of the (many) unoccupied moons in system.

Can I just add thanks to the other freighter pilots that put up with my repeated requests for listing their cargo when double (not to mention triple) checking we had everything that was needed. While this wasn't the first outpost I've helped deploy, this is the first I've organised and getting it wrong I'd have never lived down!

Congratulations and thanks again to all those involved in erecting this symbolic structure. It was quite tiresome though I'm sure the lovely new furniture in the DX4 office will suffice to rest on for this evening. Smile

It truly is amazing what the strength of like minded capsuleers can accomplish.

Congratulations to Star Fraction for a successful deployment of the outpost. Hopefully the NRDS ROE of SF will encourage something that providence has been lacking as of late, a neutral prescence. It will be good to see a place where all can conduct trade and exploit the natural resources of the system. Best of luck with the outpost.

Congratulations my love. A dream I've heard you whisper in our nights many times and now it's there, made real.
I've told you many times that you could make it, even when you didn't believe so in the darkest times.

Now, more than ever, congratulations for daring to dream.
Prepare our suite there with care my beloved. In your honour I'll even allow myself to step inside a minmatar station to make yet another home for us.

You have the Bless of the Sovereign of Sani Sabik and the kiss of your lover combined to celebrate yet another mark of your success.

Yours
Revan

From a bay in TAZ station, a diamond amongst these stars, looking upon the terrestrial one is profoundly aware of the ineffable beauty and fragility of the world beneath, and like a faith I realize that our most urgent task is to cherish and preserve the freedoms we have established here.

Congratulations. This is a step in the right direction for New Providence.

I went to visit, chatted with a few locals. The local market was being populated with essential supplies as I toured the station. I could feel an air of high tension, with an Amarrian in local. But I expected that going in, and tempers didn't flare.

Overall it was a good feeling, like the cusp of a new era. Reminded me of my early years, when everything was new and exciting. I do hope this outpost represents a turning point in New Providence. Perhaps in the coming weeks we'll see existing outposts opened up for free trade, and the drum of industry can reverberate throughout all of New Providence.

We will see.

Norlonto is an anarchist micro-state from the ancient Earth litterature written by Ken MacLeod of which "The Star Fraction" is the first book in the series. A fine piece of Sci-fi writing I may add.

Hopefully TAZ Norlonto won't have the currency issues that the Norlonto of old had. Congratulations free captains, it's a fine structure you've got there.

The Blockade Runner Journeyman is docked and I am touring the freeport as I speak. There is already a moderate amount of activity as pilots, crews, entrepreneurs and laborers set up shop and move their families into quarters. I've visited many stations, but generally they have been operating for decades. Never seen one at such an early stage of growth.

It was good to see the familiar faces and shipIDs of Star Fraction freecaptains on my way in this morning. Well done, ladies and gentlemen!

Hahahaha clearly you don't understand the failure of NRDS in the *new* providence.

In earth-terms its like being at peace with Luxemborg yet being at war with Germany, France, Holland and all the other countries surrounding it, then trying to fly there :D

That's not failure of NRDS. That's failure of people to communicate and negotiate standings for themselves.

So you are saying that some random free pilot not bound to an standing enclosurism corporation or alliance can negotiate a blue status with daisho syndicate, agony, solidas, etc? Well maybe they can, if they pay them alot, but i didnt know that that was your idea of freespace.

But if that isnt a sign of a failed nrds, then you are telling me that space where neutrals are shot by pretty much everyone is a sign of a succesfull nrds? Does that also mean daisho is in fact an NRDS alliance who just wants to keep the neutrals alert and their station clean? And dont want that the local wildlife on their moons would be disturbed by a POS?

So you are saying ...


Every time I see a galnet post beginning with an attempt to reinterpret the words of a free captain with the phrase "so you are saying" "so what you mean is" "so you mean to say" then I can't think of anything other than how Merdaneth, Archbishop, Rodj Blake and the other deceitful Amarrian Nationalists behave here.

You are a pilot associated with the CVA era Providence and you shot people in space because the CVA standings list told you to. Not because they had neccessarily committed aggression or piracy or any misdeed whatsoever. Simply because Aralis told you what to do and you trusted him to make decisions for you.

You have no right or credibility whatsoever to come here and lecture others about standings enclosurism Furb Killer. You lived and breathed that ideology for many years.

Freespace means free of a dominating imperialist standings regime. It does not mean free of risk, or free of the neccessity to take personal responsibility for the protection of your ship and crew.

The Star Fraction have made it crystal clear what we do and do not make available to neutrals in YWS0-Z system.

We provide free docking.
Full access to the market, refinary functions, repair and cloning.
We will not interfere with the anchoring of POS towers and we invite people to make use of the local infrastructure upgrades and enhanced profitability of the system.

We do not provide a standings list that we force people to adopt.
We do not provide an imperialist ideology that you must obey.
We do not provide a mythological patriarch in the sky you must worship.
We do not provide a security blanket for you to clutch to your belly while jumping through gates.

Stand on your own two feet and you'll do well.
Cringe like a dog and beg for somebody else to protect you and you'll fail.

And we have absolutely no need for a creature like you to attempt to dishonestly reinterpret the words we speak on this thread.
