    The Spur is currently considered neutral territory by the USCM and the Miniknog. Both parties have agreed to not have any military presence within the Sector.

    This may be the cause of reports of increased rebel activity within the sector.

    The Apex are currently in a state of civil war between the Miniknog Government and a Rebellion, who consider the Miniknog rule to be tyrannical.

    The rebellion may have taken advantage of the lack of Miniknog presence in the sector, and begun to use the Sector as a safe zone.

    More on the situation as new reports come in.

    I've added the current colonies to the /scry function.

    Let me know if you want yours added on.

    If you want the server to send a player a message when they beam down to your planet. Setting the scene and giving a short description of the planet, let me know, send me a PM telling me which planet and also what you want the description to be.

    The server has been updated to 1.1.0.

    This includes the return of official planet chat, no more server commands required.

    1.0 wiped all the old colonies. Some are old and are unlikely to be rebuilt, however some may be rebuilt.

    If you own any of the colonies in the colonies subforum and want the subforum to be kept around, please let us know by making a post in this thread.

    EDIT: If you're getting a message about 'assets mismatch', go to the main menu and select "Allow Assets Mismatch."

    Hello people of Orion's Edge! We're happy to announce that everything seems to be working correctly and we are running the server on the most recent version of Starbound! Have fun!

    With Starbound 1.0 around the corner, it appears that old world files are not compatible with new world files. There is almost certainly going to be a full server wipe, sadly. The old world files will be available to download over FTP once we make the upgrade to Starbound 1.0.

    You may wish to keep a copy of the current version of Starbound if you want to review old worlds.

    There is an excellent guide here on how to backup your current version of Starbound: https://www.orionsedge.com/index.php?threads/important.1401/



    Obviously you don't want to start building now,...

    Due to personal reasons, some members of staff have elected to retire their positions and as a result, I have taken charge as Administrator of OE. I have experience in moderation, but I will admit that being the head of a server is new to me, and I will probably end up learning as I go. That said, I will do my best to be impartial, fair, mature, and community minded. The rules and setting as they are will remain unchanged unless necessary. I look forward to going on adventures with all of you, and hope to see you all have fun on Orion's Edge!

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask in...

    Spurrian’s everywhere can finally rest easy, as the United Systems & Miniknog have agreed upon a mutual withdrawal from Orion Space, effective...

    Trouble for Snowquill: Floran sympathizers endanger citizens
    Authored by Janio Zayen

    In a shocking reversal of previous policy, Snowquill is now allowing Floran invaders free reign to prey on its inhabitants. What possessed the mayor of a safe and peaceful colony to willingly invite a race of cannibalistic savages to live alongside them? An INN inside report suggests that the real reason may be far more disgusting than anyone could have ever imagined. The only thing we can know for certain is that...

    The life cost of the United Systems and the Miniknog's political games
    It's dusk on Loswake, time for supper, but the families on this wealthy mining colony are not sitting at the dinner table in their home. They are keeping each other company in one of the many reinforced underground shelters on the isolated world, the drone of distant raid sirens drowning out the thuds of mortar fire. 391 people have been killed over the last year from the recent and relentless pirate raids.

    The erchius producing world wasn't always like this....
