Those vagabonds bold enough to venture out beyond the bubble know too well the eerie tranquility of being alone in the void. Whispers in the dark, the howl of witchspace, the silence in local. Then after a while these things become a strange comfort. Colors shift and lights dim. Each passing jump leads to new discoveries. Each step along your plotted course brings you one step closer to something grand, often enough something you alone will have ever seen.

Mighty nebulae pass in the blink of an eye. Blue lights enter your horizon like bells at dawn, until all before you is blinding and brilliant. But to those bolder still, who dare to venture off the well worn paths. A greater revelation awaits where the mysterious, and the unexplained, mingles in shadow. For myself it came at the light in Tenebris: Magellan's star. So named because of its position on the far eastern edge of the galaxy.

Looking out from where the first beams of light emanating from the Magellanic clouds strike the Milky Way, that old eerie feeling crept back in. Turning back I took in the length and breath of the galaxy, and all at once I understood why. Silence is often deafening, at the edge of the tempest. A hurricane of dust and gas that spins and shakes with star burst over the eons. And for this journey, we'll sail into her beating heart. We'll camp in the wake of her recent thunder cracks, chase anomalies, and attempt to decipher mysteries that have long eluded even the most radiant minds of our community.

This expedition, brought to you by Cmdr. Fantastic Spork, the New Pilot's Initiative, and myself John Grant; will cover 75,000 lightyears of space. We will explore, observe, and catalogue some of the galaxies greatest rarities, all while enjoying the most breathtaking sites in Elite. As we will be travelling with two dedicated fleet carriers in tow, feel free to bring multiple ships.

The Expedition will begin January 9th, 3307 - and it is open to everyone across all platforms. From the most hardened veteran, to the youngest and most inexperienced among us. All are welcome!
