The Time Capsule post also hints at a possible new faction as well as referencing an in-universe event some may have missed. Yesterday's fiction teaser was posted in the morning containing a threatening message from an anonymous source calling themselves The Tide. The fiction was in the style of a digital newspaper that had been hacked as was reflected by the header art. By afternoon the update, including the header image, was replaced with the current story about a Vanduul raid. Interestingly today's fiction teaser regarding a peace accord between the UEE and the Xi'an has the XO of the SS LightHammer writing in his log:
"The inter-system Comms absolutely lit up. People thought it was a joke. Maybe some Activist cracked the NewsOrgs? Wouldn’t be the first time."
