    So I was flying home from the pub the other night, and found I’d somehow garaged my combat ready Python for a ‘kinda’ explorer fitted Asp (it’s got guns).
    And then I got lost between Ixbakald and Wangal, flew straight past Spica (it’s a binary, but you’re not going to get ANY ‘second star and fly right’ reference from me), and am going in a very convoluted path… somewhere.

    I’ve seen a nice wee nebula a few hundred LY away that I’m gonna hang out in for a while.

    Back soon(Tm)

    I’m a fuel rat… Just thought you might want to know.

    What could you be suggesting? 😉

    As if a combat pilot would forget a fuel scoop… That’s never happened to me before… In my FdL…

    Cheers buddy, hopefully I don’t have to call on your services 🙂

    Found an ELW out in the black

    But another Commander had been there first

    So I kicked over his flag, burnt it, hid the ashes, and claimed the planet.

    See, I can make friends.

    I’m only some 1700 LY out from Wangal, and have found a cluster of unclaimed ELW’s and WW’s. Last night also saw lots of high metal contents, and a 17 earth mass (only 2.2G) landable icy planet, which I’ll be heading back to sometime – it had some huge planet-long canyons to crash into.

    However, no exotic stars, which might explain the ELW’s…

    Have my eyes on a pretty system another 900LY ‘up’, will post some shots of the Galaxy disk when I get there.

    Followed the stars “Up”, until I ran out of jumps.

    I wonder what the story of civilisations on this planet would be, as those in the northern hemisphere see darkness, the abyss.

    While those to the south see the galaxy in all her glory.

    Waterworld, terraformable at the edge.

    It is an interesting thought about inhabited planets on the rim of a galaxy, how they view it and what they would believe it is. Great image.

    Go you filthy little monkey.

    I’m headed on my way back in, minor repairs, grab a better scoop & then off to monkey head nebula (of course).

    Where should I drop the exploration data?

      If you haven’t handed it in already I’d say HIP 20199 is where we need the influence, to keep the Expansion pending (if it still is).

      Influence is fine in Wangal and HIP 20638 as far as I can see, unless it’s been decided to launch an expansion from either system? (And in IMHO Wangal could do with another war/election to see if we can win another station =)

    Lock up your pigs,
    Hide your best liquor,
    Make sure your immunisation is up to date,
    I’m back

    Got into Wangal late last night (late enough to not impress Mrs Simian…), jumped straight into my Clipper, and signed up for some go shooty missions.

    Very good to have you back Simian.  I feel much more comfortable knowing you are behind a holy weapon of the Emperor.

    Two months later, I’m steaming in with some exploration data.  I see this, check the maps, and see HIP 20199 is – again – in expansion state.  So I’m heading there now to submit all my exploration data at Fabricus Vision.  🙂

    @elviskremmen

    I’m 99% certain the expansion is coming from Ilaqua. It’s influence was around 80% at the beginning of the Expansion state and has been dropping heavily every cycle since. This must be a new mechanic as I can’t recall having seen influence drop during the expansion on previous occasions.

    I’m unsure If we need to keep Ilaqua’s influence above 75% to ensure the expansion is successful but it couldn’t do any damage.
