January 2008

The New Year begins in the same fashion that the old year passes. Conflict.  Time and again, UKC pilots of all designation (SF, TI and CM) answer the call to battle and respond to home defence, alliance and inter-alliance operations. It is a busy time, but one where we are not found wanting.

As this account leaves off, UKC are involved in the displacement of an enemy alliance. This operation sees our capitals deployed daily and SF and all pilots without immediate duties on the front lines, smashing fleets, dispersing roaming gangs and gate camps and POS takedowns.  

During this period of conflict, the daily routine of corporation life continues.  Resources are stockpiled, combat losses replaced and module supplies refreshed.  The well oiled machine that is UKC TI, continue to keep the corporation and its pilots supplied with ships and modules even throughout the most trying of times - no small feat.

UKC's highly lucrative Capital Investment scheme continues to grow with January seeing a dividend of 2,911,406,048.10 ISK being paid back as a dividend to its investors. In all 5 capital ships were produced and sold this month. Similarly, the invention arm of UKC continues to grow in size and scope with notable successes being reported daily.

Slowly but surely, the alliance and UKC tighten their grip on our home systems.  Success breeds success, and this month again sees both the alliance and UKC membership grow in size.  It is a good time for both UKC and the alliance. 


February 2008

in an audacious move and with the backing of another larger alliance, a period of intensive POS warfare begins with the spamming of several towers in several systems in which we hold sovereignty. Week in and week out during February; see UKC pilots reach new peaks of achievement with all hands to the wheel.

Logistics, Industrial and SF pilots rise magnificently to the occasion under increased pressure from POS warfare demands - on lining and fuelling new tower deployments, repairing and on lining off lined structures yet still finding time to put enemy towers into re-enforced and take part in interdiction gangs - often fielding the largest number of pilots in said gangs. Not just once or twice, but every day during these weeks.  During this trying time, UKC were tested but rose to the occasion and were not found wanting. We bent but did not break.

Slowly but surely as the weeks wore on, better UKC logistics and support began to tell. The offensive started to crumble. Enemy gangs were fewer and smaller in size, POS attacks and tower spamming stopped.  It was now a matter of time and turning from a defensive/offensive operation into a cleanup operation.


March 2008

Treachery!

A nasty word and one that doesn't even come close to describing what occurred at the end of February.  It is with deep sadness that this reporter has to comment on the failure of the alliance and UKC's subsequent exit from both alliance and region.

With little warning and with UKC opposing the action, the alliance leadership unilaterally surrendered to an alliance whose invasion had been checked and was failing.  To this day this reporter still cannot understand the thinking behind the decision taken, other than someone stood to gain hugely from doing so.

We are where we are. What is done is done; we can only make best use of the time remaining. UKC immediately begin to decommission all deployed towers and start immediate emergency planning for evacuation of corporation and member assets. There was no decision taken to stay or leave the alliance as it was irrelevant. That we would leave was taken for granted. Talks began immediately to find a new home, with Flaetriu, our head diplomat, commencing talks with several alliances.

Once more logistics - the often unspoken heroes of any operation - rise to the occasion. Under the guiding hand of Iceywhite, UKC pilots decommission 12 POS towers and associated structures in as many hours. It is an awesome achievement, and one that preserves a substantial amount of corporation assets.

During this frankly surreal time, corporation assets and most member assets were successfully evacuated back to Empire.  In a final twist of the knife however, UKC were ejected from the alliance at the most... unfortunate... of times which resulted in the destruction of 3 UKC capitals and their cargo as standings were reset.

UKC are not vindictive, but we do have long memories. This was not something that will be forgotten or let go.  Time waits for no man, but UKC do...

Some good news to report:  Negotiations have been completed which will see UKC back where they belong, in an established and organised alliance on the front line.  Once more, through the herculean efforts of our Board of Directors, life is good in UKC.
