Oh gods! Do I have a hangover! well luckily I didn’t see any ships nor could I face looking at the gas giant…
As I jumped into Chick Ek I received details of wedding barge where a lovely couple were making their nuptial’s, complaining of engine trouble I was able to scam a free lunch, plenty of booze but due to an incident with my tongue, an ice sculpture and a rather unfortunate language barrier I was removed immediately to continue on my journey.
Thank goodness I was calm when I jumped into this system, residents seemed to be in some sort of conflict and I had to pass though a number of checkpoints. Fortunatly I was able to get some directions and head the 68,522ls to the visitors beacon.
R & R complete at Graham City was an early start to head to Ngardinja which isn’t so far from Sol (119.82Ly), enjoyed a manicure and a very relaxing massage. Oh and it seems the engineer has solved the squeak for now…
Was just a brief stop here though I did catch a lovely view of a distant nebula.
From a carbon super giant to this water world, not sure about the food stuff here as plankton’s not really my thing and I’m convinced I saw a mermaid! I guess buyer beware pretty sure the drinks were spiked and I’m even more convinced that this squeak is getting louder in the pilots chair!
This turned out to be a nice change of pace, great views, great space and a carbon star what more can a space tourist require though the pilot seat has developed a squeak.
Well after my expensive visit to HD 148937 it was time to get back to the bubble. I’d say the outdoors is overrated with my now sparkly clean cockpit I’d rather stay in here with the fresh smell of pine from the much needed air freshener.
Well damn it, well over 9g on this purple hell planet. It was brown trouser time immediately and there was me thinking the last planet was hairy! Sadly this scan and failed landing cost an escape pod so nothing for the family album.
Wherever Cmdr Red Anders is he needs to get over here now with his scrubbing brush and help me clean this cockpit!
Having left Hillary Depot was time to head back to the bubble on my tourist ramble. Commander Mephane has a lot to answer for but he was right there was some amazing views… I recommend caution and an escape pod!
