Welcome Back To Beagle Point

This week my trusty Asp Explorer landed on the second planet of the distant start of Beagle Point. This felt momentous for a number of reason. It represents me having travelled about half way around the circumference of the galaxy. It was once the most distant, reachable star from the …

To The End Of The Outer Spiral Rim

Location: Outer Rim Vacuous, Hull: 100%, Distant Travelled: 19,588 LY When they say in Star Wars they are in the Outer Rim what do they mean? Well, it’s Star Wars so it could mean absolutely anything. Remember, this is the film that used parsecs as a measure of time. The more …

A Distant Star

Location: Outer Rim Vacuous, Distance from Sol: 14,181 Light Years, Hull: 97% I’ve mentioned a few times how I’ve reached peak Elite and I was a bit sad I could no longer find purpose in the game. I’d ridden the ship ladder as far as I wanted to go with …

Short Isn’t Necessarily Easier

There has been some disruptions to the expedition which means I fell behind momentarily, chasing the way points but not actually being synchronised with the fleet. I did consider just ditching it. The expedition is short, it’s not like I’d be giving up on some epic achievement that would stand …

Epic Suns and Mysterious Barnacles

The expedition continues to be surprising. I really was expecting it to be a routine, as I’ve done the whole Barnard’s Loop thing, but that’s not proving to be the case. I’ve seen an alien oddity, a local nebula I didn’t even know existed and it was gorgeous, and a …
