Rebels, VEGA Mining Corporation’s Vice President, Bertram Rumbelow, is less than thrilled with the events that took place during the Uprising incident - but we can’t stop now. We know that there’s massively impressive new tech out there and we won’t stop until we get it. The anonymous source will once again trade us this technology for data cores retrieved from special VEGA Retaliator fleets that will soon flood our sectors. Your job is to take these fleets out, acquire the data cores, and trade them in for your choice of powerful new technologies.

A MESSAGE FROM BERTRAM RUMBELOW

Attention, all miners.


This is Vice President Bertram Rumbelow of the VEGA Mining Corporation. I am happy to announce we have uncovered the location of the individual responsible for the 'Uprising' incident, currently known only as the 'Mystery Voice.' Upon his arrest, it will not take long to extract the identities of every miner who participated in the incident, which consisted of unlawful destruction of VEGA Mining property on an unprecedented scale. If you come forward now an aid the investigation, there will be clemency. Otherwise, you will feel the full weight of VEGA Mining justice.
  — Bertram Rumbelow 
NEW TRANSMISSION RECEIVED

From: Field Commander Vorzer

To: Office of the Senior Vice President

With the greatest respect, Vice president, can i suggest waiting for the intel to check out before you start crowing about it on public broadcasts? I don't know if I'm ready to believe that this isn't all too good to be true. Mystery Voice is smart. Smart enough to steal tech from right under our noses and use the unwashed masses to cover his tracks, I don't buy that we wouuld find him so easily. Unless he's trying to lure us into something.

INTERCEPTED TRANSMISSION RECEIVED

From: Office of the Senior Vice-President

To: Field Commander Vorzer

I would hardly call the weeks of signal-tracking and intelligence work 'easy', Vorzer and i would thank you not to question me. You are vastly overestimating this thief and the implication that a lone troublemaker could outwit a VEGA Operation, fully staffed with our best minds, is tantamount to treason in my opinion. If you're so afraid of an ambush, take some of our cutting-edge tech with you when you storm his base. that should turn the tables pretty promptly.
  — Bertram Rumbelow, Senior Vice President 
A MESSAGE FROM MYSTERY VOICE

Commander, the frequency used by the mystery voice became active again this morning. It broadcasted the following message with the usual encryptions:
  — OOPS - HAVE ACCIDENTALLY BROADCAST SOME CO-ORDINATES THAT AN INVESTIGATIVE VEGA FLEET CARRYING CUTTING EDGE TECH WILL BE ARRIVING AT SHORTLY - NOW ANY UNPRINCIPLED PERSON WILL BE ABLE TO GO THERE AND DESTROY ALL THE ESCORTING SHIPS AND STEAL IT - HOW CLUMSY OF ME 
A MESSAGE FROM BERTRAM RUMBELOW

From: Office of the Senior Vice President

To: Field Commander Vorzer

Vorzer, you idiot. Mystery Voice's base is not where we first believed. If you'd waited ten minutes before rushing in I could have informed you of that. As such, you have no one to blame but yourself for the losses suffered in the ambushes. Our signals department has re-triangulated and isolated new possible origin points. I am sending more fleets and experimental tech; investigate them all, with a little more subtlety this time.
  — Bertram Rumbelow, Senior Vice President 
A MESSAGE FROM MYSTERY VOICE

Another broadcast from the mystery voice, commander.
  — THIS TIME MUST BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO GIVE AWAY ANY LOCATIONS WHERE MORE VEGA FLEETS STUFFED WITH GOODIES ARE GOING TO BE AT THE ATTACHED LIST OF TIMES AND DATES - OH NO I DID IT AGAIN I JUST CANNOT DO ANYTHING RIGHT LATELY 
A MESSAGE FROM FIELD COMMANDER VORZER

From: Field Commander Vorzer

To: Office of the Senior Vice President

We didn't find Mystery Voice's base at any of the locations, But we did find several heavily-armed mining fleets waiting in ambush. He must have found a way to fake a signal origin at specific locations, and then he tipped off every pirating piece of filth in the sector that we were going to be there. He's laughing at us, Rumbelow. It's not even a clever scheme, but we're falling for it. He's got nothing. No ships, No soldiers. He's just pointing space-scum in our general direction, AND HE's WINNING, I've got the fleets of destroyed ships and crews to prove it.
  — Field Commander Vorzer 
A MESSAGE FROM MYSTERY VOICE

Mystery voice is broadcasting again, Commander:
  — MOTHER THINKS I AM A BAD INFLUENCE - CALLED THE BOYS BACK IN FOR SUPPER - A FEW INVESTIGATING FLEETS MAY STILL BE FLOATING AROUND SOMEWHERE BUT THEY WILL NOT BE SENDING ANY MORE OUT - LAST CHANCE TO GET YOUR HANDS ON SOME OF THIS NEW TECH THAT VEGA SEEM VERY KEEN TO LOSE - IT WAS FUN WHILE IT LASTED 
A MESSAGE FROM BERTRAM RUMBELOW - ENDING OF EVENT

From: Office of the Senior Vice President

To: All Staff

I do not want to hear any more talk of how the investigative operation was a"failure", just because we do not have Mystery Voice in custody. The operation was a great success, and the surviving relatives of those involved should be just as proud as I and all of VEGA Mining. We have made him complacent, and every action he takes brings us closer and closer to his identity. For example, our analysts have determined that his three most recent broadcasts have used repurposed VEGA broadcast protocols that VEGA employed during a specific period seven years ago.

From this we now know two things: we know that he used to work for us, and we know the time period in which he did so. You see, with every step he takes, the noose grows tighter.
  — Bertram Rumbelow Senior Vice President

Trivia

  • This is VEGA Conflict's 2nd Huge-scale event after Uprising.
  • The Format of the event is roughly the same as Uprising.
  • The Fleets will be different from what is encountered when fighting VEGA Cargo fleets but it isn't new VEGA Ships, hence you will need New Strategies to destroy the Fleets!
  • A dedicated, skilled player can get everything without coining. Kixeye made sure of that. You gotta work for it, but it's doable!
  • All the Fleets which have the level of 27 and above will be replaced by the VEGA Retaliator Fleets.
  • The Event Fleets will give resources like how normal VEGAs do. They also have a chance of dropping Blueprints like the other fleets!
  • If you missed the last one, Don't miss out on this one!
  • Retribution will last all weekend.
  • Event Prizes won't be immediately added as Blueprints and Kixeye looking into the right time to bring back the prizes.
  • Ship Specs will be released after the event.
  • At 50,000 data cores you can claim the first Level of the prizes, at 250,000 you can claim the second, at 750,000 you can claim the third. And at 1,250,000 you can claim the Frigate!
  • Take note you can only choose between either the Armored Hold or the Siege Driver at each tier,  and you cannot repick after you have made your choice, so Choose Wisely!
  • Good luck Rebel Commanders, you're going to need it! :)
  • This event was the last to be hosted on Adobe. After Retribution, KIXEYE switched to the Unity Engine.
