(formerly Spinward Enquirer)
A news publication with a reputation for outlandish and speculative
reporting. Originally started as the Spinward Enquirer in
the Spinward Marches in the late 1060's, it was renamed the Galactic
Enquirer when distribution expanded into Deneb sector in 1120.
It is available most commonly as a newspaper, although electronic
publication is also available in certain systems.
While most stories are considered pure fabrications by all but the
publication's most avid followers, the editors insist otherwise.
"We believe all our stories are true. We do not,
fact-check any stories submitted by our reporters, as we know they
have already verified their sources. Our trustworthy reporting
team is what makes us more reliable than mainstream publications, who
constantly double-check their stories to avoid printing anything that
is not true."
It is rumored that from time to time, thriller writer Akim Gavrolovitch
contributed stories to the Spinward Enquirer, although he denied this
during his lifetime.
