We did it! A heartfelt thank-you to everyone that helped us to gain controlling influence in Khun. And of course – welcome to our latest member, engineer Elvira Martuuk (maybe we can bring a smile for her, we do bring biscuits after all!)
Founded in April 3301 by the eponymous Dr Arcanonn, Canonn Interstellar Research (also referred to simply as The Canonn) is the largest and most active scientific community throughout the Bubble. It all started with the emergence of the now infamous ‘Unknown Artefacts’ – a mystery (or is it a conspiracy?) that continues to dominate the Elite Dangerous universe.
Operating out of Thompson Dock, Varati, our extreme focus and diligence can be attributed to our diet of biscuits, whisky and a penchant for wearing tin foil hats. We take our Science seriously, but we do it without covering ourselves in chalkdust.
Our never-ending mission is not just to uncover the truth about these Unknown Artefacts, but all mysteries throughout the galaxy.
Dr Arcanonn is now helped by the Council who, in turn, only exist because of the members – those brave tinfoil-hat wearers who tirelessly sought the unknown artefacts in those dangerous early days; and who now continue to find exciting science to do, day after day after day after day after day.
A few months ago we sneaked into engineer Elvira Martuuks’s home system Khun, and after a long year of planning war has finally broken out there. Now help us and fight alongside Canonn commanders in conflict zones in Khun to make Canonn the first player backed minor faction to take an engineer’s system!
With reports that Thargoid interactions are spreading, we want to introduce some scientific rigor into the capture of the data, and for that we need your help.
Third time’s a charm, right? Canonnball run is launching for the third time this December 1st. New puzzles, and new locations. Who will come on top this time?
Cmdr Larzok brings you the latest news update, including news of the Second Barnacle Forest, Aegis’ expansions, discovery of more INRA bases, information of The Sol Sweep, a special open letter to Ram Tah, and the 3rd Canonnball.
CMDR Lexic Meise presents this new series from Canonn Faction News exploring historical information about people and subjects of interest. This first episode details the life and discoveries of Professor Palin from his first appearance, original research programme, invite to join Canonn Research, lab break-in, all the way up to the current day.
The Intergalactic Naval Reserve Arm (INRA) were a co-operative between the Federation and Empire that operated during the last war with the Thargoids.
A number of abandoned settlements provide an insight into their background, activities and the development of the Mycoid agent.
CMDR Robbie discovers another Barnacle Forest, the second discovered so far. It is located at:
Pleiades Sector PN-T b3-0 – Planet A5
The Canonn Roundtable – Open discussion on current events around the galaxy.
CMDR HSKelvin Presenting, Joined by CMDR Panpiper, CMDR Lexic Meise, CMDR Science0, CMDR Dutch Foster, CMDR CrescentMage and CMDR DMehaffy.
Cmdr Larzok brings you the latest news update, including news of the newest Megaship Community Goal, Distant Worlds 2, and the retreat and discoveries in the Pleiades.
In what can only be called a resounding show of support from both the community at large and Canonn members, a project to build and commission the first player group owned Asimov class science vessel Gnosis was completed in May 3303.
While the project was expected to take a week to finish and even had 2 extra massive orders laid on top of it beyond the initial 8 stages, the goal was completed in a little under 3 standard days with an estimated 35 million tonnes of goods delivered by roughly 9,400 commanders.
It is suspected this operation was both one of the largest showing of commanders and fastest completing operations since the fabled Imperial Gold Rush run by Denton Patreus in 3302.
The Canonn Council thanks all that took part and helped us with this proud achievement, and looks forward to bringing the ship and our science to key hotspots around the galaxy.
