Gonrah, ran by the PKA, is seeking a science deal with the OH. Details of the deal will be discussed at greater length once the pilots return home from a rescue mission led by up and coming PKA pilot Dunnel McKinnin. It is reported that they want to strengthen their exploration and trade industries and that they wish to have assistance from the OH science department in this endeavor. "I'd like input from our new pilot members before we go further with this but am excited to see what we can hash out," said president Ned Faro.

The PKA has purchased the rights to sell FSI engines to their pilots with different qualification recommendations than the HPA pilots have. A slight markup in price is included to offset the $400,000,000 cost of the licensing fee. In this license includes a clause that engines may be sold to trader ships abroad who are not affiliated with enemies of the OH.

Due to the PKA's efforts to create some products for themselves, they tried to offer the OH cargo company a deal that was denied. Their plan was to create a higher-level cargo unit specifically for their members. The argument was that they are desiring to give their pilots and trade ships some advantages due to lack of combat ship purchasing.
The FSI refused to allow this to be put on their freighters and threatened to prevent PKA members from purchasing the freighter at all.
A GSI spokesperson said, "This is not a problem. Our three person freighter has just finished completion and will now be taken off the table for a future agreement."
This news is getting a mixed bag of reviews from pilots at large, but most OH pilots are in full agreement with the cargo company's decision. "The more weight a ship carries, the less it can do. I hope they know what they are doing," HPA security chief Austin Turner was overheard saying to colleagues while dining at Larry's Chicken palace.
Ned Faro, president of the PKA had this to say. "We don't want to freeze out HPA pilots but we do need some things that our pilots can work with on their own too. It is sad that this deal failed but we did try. We did allow all pilots to purchase our carrier and have no plans to change this, unless pushed," Faro warned.

Sector 9, where earth resides, has been claimed by the PKA with no opposition from the Oria Hegemony.
"There were stipulations in the agreement," science department deputy chief Amanda Stevens stated. "Earth is in such ruin that it would take more money than anyone wants to put in it to attempt repairs. We are talking trillions of dollars here. Thus, the PKA agreed that if any such endeavor were to begin, it would be overseen by the OH science department. Reason being that we have a long term vested interest in humanity and it's survival. Thus, we don't want to see any half-baked project ruin that."
Ned Faro gave a brief statement on the exciting news. "We have another plan for the sector. Sadly, we are in full agreement with the Hegemony here, the price tag is far to high for us to bite into at this time. We also will be paying more for the defense of this sector being added to the cost of Gonrah."
While the plans for this sector were not divulged, the general public are speculating. It is a good move for PKA expansion is the general theme of chatter at the chicken palace.
Dated: Tuesday March 2nd, 2221, 12:50 p.m. at artifact separation
A publicist for the PKA has announced that their pilots will begin to submit artifacts on the new observatory station in sector 9. "A deal has been made with the OH science department and us as we attempt to grow our own department. Artifacts will still be paid out by the OH but they have granted us a percentage of the pay when our pilots turn the relics in for research. In turn we will make readily available to their pilots some upcoming upgrades that will work with the NEP scan's range."
The publicist failed to comment on when we would be able to land on the station.
Dated: Friday May 21st, 2221, 1:59 a.m. at PKA Applicants on hold
During a meeting with PKA representative Dunnel McKinnin and pilot Kairi Kaeling, it was requested that applicants be on an approval basis. This way, the human leadership could speak with the pilots to understand why they wanted to join and to make sure their knowledge of the PKA was correct.
This has finally been voted on by the council and approved. Thus, applications will be closed for a brief time so that representative McKinnin can sort how he wants this to work with his current members. This likely won't happen until he sees the process and is able to know what he will have to work with.
News of some sort of PKA stunner was mentioned too but there is no set time table for its release.
Dated: Wednesday October 20th, 2221, 4:09 a.m. at Beheading Protests On Gonrah
While the streets are being outfitted with monitors so that the OH citizens will have ample space to witness the beheading, PKA president Ned Faro denied dictator Larkra Faro's request to have all protests ceased. "So long as they are peaceful protests, I will not prevent freedom of speech," said Faro.
"This likely will strain relations between the hegemony and PKA once the beheading has been completed," sources speculate.
Dictator Larkra Faro has mandated that everyone who is a Hegemony citizen attend the beheading. This would include the pilots who have joined the PKA as they have not been able to become full citizens of Gonrah due to labor payment disagreements.
Several protests on Oria and Kizak have been responded to with heavy fines and, in many cases, arrests.
There is still no comment from Larkra's chosen beheader, FDD member Blazer Faro. Again, sources speculate that she is unhappy to be doing this task but knows she cannot go against Larkra's wishes.
There is also still no word on the status of fugitive pilot Natasha Drake. Rayford Billings did state that he will not force anyone to return from his station to attend the beheading, "consequences be damned," he added.
