Expedition announce

I'm pleased to announce that Miskatonic University is collaborating with The Canonn Interstellar Research Group for this year's expedition. Last year's expedition was perhaps not the greatest success given the mysterious disappearance of Lukas Richardson in the Pleiades Region and the deaths of a number of students, however it was a roaring success compared to the Antarctic expedition of the 1930s in which the entire advance party died. This year the one name on everyone's lips is the Thargoids.

The Canonn Interstellar Research Group are providing us with the coordinates of over 200 Thargoid surface sites for us to visit and survey as well as a number of crash sites and barnacle forests. The aim is to visit each site in turn single or in groups and compete a survey. The level of participation is optional but clearly we are looking for a full survey of all sites.

New Priority

Thanks to everyone's efforts so far we have gathered enough data to classify sites into a number of distinct types of site. The key to identifying sites it to count the Leviathans from the the air. The Leviathans are cockroach like structures that can be seen from high above the sites.

Our top priority now is to get aerial screenshots of every site. Ideally we would like daylight images of the sites but where this is not possible you should take a screenshot using night vision with your HUD turned off and use the High Res screenshot so that you can crop the image.

Tools

We hope to provide an EDMC plugin to help you with the route and provide you with a pre-filled link to the survey soon, but in the mean time the waypoint descriptions here on EDSM contain a link to fill in the Canonn survey form as well as details of the planets the sites can be found on.

Its recommended that you visit the sites in groups as this can sometimes summon one of the Thargoids. It also make it a bit easier to gather the materials needed in order to activate the sites.

We would like you to keep a journal and please feel free to include video images and poetry if the muse strikes

We now have a squadron "Miskatonic University" with tag MSKU and we also have a discord server so you can get in touch with other members and coordinate your actions. Alternatively you can keep in touch through the fdev forums

Essential equipment

  • Surface Scanner: We would like you to map any bodies in each system that have not yet been mapped.
  • SRV: Essential for getting inside the sites
  • Corrosion Resistant Cargo Rack: You will need this to carry Thargoid Sensors and Thargoid Probes for access to the sites

Thargoid Sensors and Probes

Find a threat 5 Non Human Signal Source with a good few minutes on the clock. When you drop look in the contacts panel for a sensor or probe and ignore the cyclops. If there is no sensor or probe then exit to the main menu. When you log back in, go into supercruise and look in your navigation panel for the Unidentified Signal. You can keep dropping in the same threat five Non Human Signal Source until it spawns what you need
