Events

April

  • April 7: Matt Dawson (mdawson@opcom.sydney.au), Tom Miller (novamania@opsource.bos.us) and The Lightkeeper (lightkeeper@opcom.melbourne.au) talk about nova group Australis on the NovaWatch OpSite discussion boards.[7]

May

  • May 11: An unmarked communiqué is sent to "Jonathan." It says that a script for an N! documentary about Slider is set to air, but is unkind to the Project, so it should get edited or killed before it airs, and whoever's responsible should be fired.[8]
  • May 14: N! documentary "Jennifer Landers, A Year of Mourning" is set to air, but does not, presumably due to its content deemed unkind to Project Utopia.[9]

June

  • June 7: The Sun contains an article by Edward Whitfield claiming that London Fog was born a man.[10] The same day, while interviewing London Fog regarding a recent plane rescue, BBC News confronts her with the same statement. She offers no comment.[11]
  • June 10: Edward Whitfield retracts his statement in his June 7 article of The Sun.[10]

July

  • July 16: Jacob Ashton writes a private journal entry bemoaning his non-nova status. He believes it's his birthright to be a nova, and has tried transcendental meditation, skydiving, even murder with his bare hands in hopes of joining their number.[12]
  • July 28: Donald Zeleckis, a Jewish-American tourist and nova, dies while stopping a nuclear missile which has been launched at Syria. Israeli officials deny authorizing the escalation to nuclear weapons. Syrian officials don't believe Israel is responsible and will not respond in kind.[13][14]
  • July 31: A memorial is held for Donald Zeleckis. He receives posthumous honors for heroism. Both Syrian and Israeli governments agree to a cease-fire for this day to honor Zeleckis' sacrifice.[13]

August

  • August 3: An article notes that Project Utopia's approval ratings within the US, Australia and parts of Europe have continued to drop since the Slider murder last year.[15]
  • August 7: Project Utopia announces "Operation Genesis," a successor to Operation Eden, with novas attempting to transform the Sahara desert (specifically, in Niger) into a fertile paradise.[16]
  • N! does a "The World's Opinion" segment asking people what they think of Operation Genesis. Opinion is mixed: some voice their full approval, while others believe Utopia should tackle problems such as finding André Corbin or various political problems before giving people more land to fight over.[17]
  • August 8: Nigerian officials deploy troops along the Nigerian/Niger border, for "security reasons." They deny any connection to the announcement of Operation Genesis, but state "we have a right to defend ourselves ... and keep our nation safe from any and all invaders, no matter how pleasant a mask they wear."[18]
  • August 9: The Associated Press reports on yesterday's troop movement in Nigeria.[18]
  • August 14: Project Utopia manager Terrance Whitaker has an OpNet conversation with Antaeus, telling him that Utopia's directors want Operation Genesis to be completed in five years rather than two, with more substantial progress within the next three months. Antaeus refuses, stating that if the directors persist, they can find themselves another "miracle worker."[18]
  • August 16: During a meeting with the Project Utopia board of directors, manager Terrance Whitaker passes on Antaeus' message. Justin J. Laragione and an unidentified man and woman converse and decide to expedite matters without Antaeus' knowledge, hoping his own enthusiasm will draw him back in to Operation Genesis regardless. Caestus Pax assures the assembled that he'll be able to keep Antaeus in line.[19]
  • August 17: Violet Mayhew goes on N! Sight with Parker Stevenson and tells Parker about her new album, Shaped From the Dust.[20]
  • August 27: The Associated Press reports that Mashala "Harmattan" Kader, a nova with control of wind and sand, will be joining Project Utopia on Operation Genesis. Antaeus cannot be reached for comment.[21]
