Expedition announce

The Deep Space Network is pleased to announce its new expedition: The DSN Luxury Tour !!!

 

 

This expedition proposes a circuit of 21 asteroid bases located on the periphery of the bubble, using only Saud Kruger luxury ships (Beluga Liner, Orca, Dolphin).

The main route is 44 000 Ly long and allows to visit 17 Nebulaes and 2 Planetary Nebulaes.

The full itinerary (offering free optional waypoints), for a trip of 68,000 Ly, allows to visit up to 36 Nebulaes, 15 Planetary Nebulaes and one mega-ship.

This unique expedition will allow to see a lot of absolutely awesome nebula (Most were hand-crafted by Frontier and not procedurally generated), never moving more than 7,500 Ly (9,000 Ly for optional waypoints) from Sol. In addition, the asteroid bases at each waypoint allow a safe trip despite its length.

Characteristics of the expedition:

  • Bilingual: French and English
  • Departure on October 22, 3303 (2017)
  • Return on December 17, 3303 (2017)
  • Only Saud Kruger ships are authorized: Beluga Liner, Orca and Dolphin
  • All the main waypoints are asteroid bases, offering fuel, repair and restock
  • Some asteroid bases offer also Outfitting and / or Shipyard (see map of the route)

The expedition, organized by the, will be exclusively managed on the DSN server: https://discord.gg/feaaaZT

For security reasons (considering the proximity of the bubble) and ease of management, the expedition will take place in the DSN private group (access on request, in the DSN discord).
