0305 – Chick Ek Visitor Beacon – Chick Ek

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.

0039 – Strong G – HD 148937

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.

0036 - Strong G - HD 148937
This huge planet in a system with multiple stars, providing once-in-a-lifetime vistas, was suggested by Commander Red Anders. This destination is definitely one for the adventure tourists. The less experienced should be careful of the planet’s strong gravity!

Wherever Cmdr Red Anders is he needs to get over here now with his scrubbing brush and help me clean this cockpit!
