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!
Needing to clean through the Anaconda’s engines I was ready for a slightly longer journey, plotting a course for Aucoks OH-D B18-3 to see these Ammonia Rings for myself. Travelling 1891.47ly from Sol as suggest by Cmdr Arkadi Kreven and engines clean I think it was worth the journey.
There is plenty to see in the bubble, 91.03ly from Sol Commander Darius Torkalar suggested this gem.
Travelling a mere 51.41Ly from Sol brought me to 19 Phi-2 Ceti, as recommended by CMDR Ziljan it seems….
Getting round these has kept me busy, thankfully not all systems have so many. I believe there are more to find as for now I am on the hunt for the first series which means I need to come home at some point but for now it’s time to leave the systems and get into the black….
That’s the thing with a universe which has 400 Billion stars, where to begin. My original spawn point back on release in 2014 was an innocuous system called HIP 74255. It’s been a long road since and with the final chapter of ‘The Return’ just on the horizon it really was time to start to document some of my misadventures.
For now though we must choose a new beginning so Earth is where our journey will begin.
