Anti-Xeno Initiative
News Headlines

The Thargoids have returned in great force pushing large incursions into multiple human-occupied systems. Commanders abroad have been requested to aid with the defence, rescue and logistical efforts.

In response to this latest push in Thargoid activity, the Anti-Xeno Initiative has commissioned a new tracking and monitoring system to allow commanders to keep up-to-date with the latest movements and presence statuses of incursion systems.

This new system can be found at

CMDR Mechan and CMDR Toyotanos will be on an Odyssey Frontier twitch live stream tomorrow (Thursday) at 18:00 UTC (7pm BST, 2pm US EST, ...) with FDEV Community Managers Bruce and Zac. We will discuss Anti Xeno combat and see if, among other things, we can get Bruce his first (wing) rank (Zac already has it)

Agenda is fluid but we expect to spend some time talking about AX before jumping into combat ... for all multi-goid fans we'll also be bringing meta-alloys to see if we can get an interceptor to invite a friend to the party.

Also, we will do our best to NOT follow in the footprints of our glorious founder, and die on stream to a clops, but there are no guarantees...

Join us tomorrow on Twitch to listen in, participate, and have some AX fun!

The Anti-Xeno Initiative was established on the 15th of November 3303 (2017), back then the Thargoids were still shrouded in mystery. Over the years we have made leaps and bounds to uncover their secrets, understand their technology and ultimately master their destruction. Today marks a tremendous landmark in the history of the AXI, we are proud to announce that we have officially reached 10,000 members in the Anti-Xeno Initiative Discord.

The AXI has seen colossal growth and development over the past 3 years, we have written the books on Thargoid combat, taken on the most challenging achievements in AX imaginable and defended countless systems from incursions and infestations over the years.

In celebration of this milestone, the AXI will be hosting several exciting events over the coming weeks.

See the upcoming events here.

Thank you CMDRs!

AXI Staff

CMDRs, We've heard from FDev Community Managers with regards to some of the priority issues we're experiencing affecting AX combat in both Horizons and Odyssey, specifically the issue involving NHSSes not working as intended.

FDev shared as follows:

"We've re-opened the second issue tracker link and we're going to add the info from [a Discord message stating additional info on the NHSS issues] (either externally or on our own systems, either way we'll have it)

Could you please all be sure to contribute to both tickets with as much detail as possible.

We'd also find it helpful if you could add some netlogs to your 'contributions' in the issue tracker - you can do so by following some instructions I'll post separately." [Horizons] [Odyssey]

To enable detailed NetLogging, instructions are posted here.

Please help us help FDev in fixing the NHSS issues, by voting on the two issues above and by providing detailed netlogs per their request.

Thank you CMDRs!

AXI Staff

Earlier today a statement was release by Operation Ida Management.

Afternoon Everyone. We wanted to bring you good news today, but unfortunately the two bugs that are affecting our repairs have not been resolved. This week another station in progress (Donar's Oak) has been reset again, and the missing commodities we delivered to Artemis Lodge and Betancourt Base have not been returned to those stations. If you haven't already, we would greatly appreciate it if everyone upvoted the bug reports linked above.

In the meantime, we will not be coordinating repairs (or tracking them), since we value your time, effort, and credits. If you would still like to haul deliveries, please feel free to do so, but we cannot guarantee station progress will not be reset until we get a confirmation from Fdev. If you are a carrier owner full of supplies and would like to off load them, please message any staff members and we will arrange to offload your carrier for you.

Again, thank you for your patience. We appreciate all our haulers, traders, carrier owners, and combat pilots. We're glad to have you in Operation Ida. smiley

-The Management

Operation Ida and the AXI have had a close connection for years as our work compliments each other. We hope frontier can sort out this issue as soon as possible as it affects the careers and important work of our close companions over at Op Ida.

Glory, to Mankind!

"I would like to congratulate CMDR Avasa Siuu on becoming the newest Overseer for AXI. He really needs no more introduction for how outspoken he is, though his diligence in creating and implementing infrastructures to better AXI internally must be commended. I feel extremely confident for him to join the ranks of Overseer, knowing that it will erect another indomitable pillar to support the community.

The time ahead is difficult (Odyssey being what it is), and I fault no one for losing interest or faith in ED at the moment. However, that is precisely why communities like ours are the heart and blood of ED. We will make ourselves heard, not just for AXI, but for the game that we deserve and built our group upon."

- CMDR Gluttony Fang, Founder of the Anti-Xeno Initiative

Glory, to Mankind!

The Megaships Alexandria, currently carrying large quantities of Guardian Cargo, has been pursued by Thargoids when it jumped towards the bubble from Delphi last week.

We have been informed by galnet news sources that the megaship plans to jump this Thursday to the system HIP 30944. The system has a low population but there is still a risk of hostile Thargoid action.

For safety reasons, the megaship will be dropping off any docked ships prior to the jump tomorrow.

This is an ADVISORY notice to all AX pilots, expect hostile Thargoid activity in the system HIP 30944 this Thursday and be ready to respond if necessary.

AXI Defence Council

Big news on the Thargoid front. A new incursion has been detected, this time closer to the bubble than any incursion in the last few years.
