so my journey continues in memory of our Fallen Commanders and or there lost family members.
My Cobra has now left the lovely Sites of the Abyss and has now passed through the Formorian frontier to enter the weary Newtons vault for a peek at those Giant Space pumpkins then jumping further through Izanami, Rykers hope to the Void hearts in the Empyrean Straits. Scanning and mapping those juicy planets on Horizons mode. I do wonder what may cross my path on this long journey! 07 Ed Community :)
That was a night to remember. The Woman and the Guys were all out in there dancing outfits and glad rags and me in my Mav suit, Looking well outta place. Tijani met me after we went for a bath ( Separately ) Ya still gotta know who she/they are!!!.
Anyhoo, All freshened up and met Tijani at the bar. She was looking fantastic in her fancy but short blue dress and very smart ankle boots with space themed tights. Most other woman were in there element with Tight shorts and regular T shirts. Where as the guys were in combat trousers or shorts with a shirt or T shirt. Yep we never changed that much from Earth to Space LOL.
Tijani and I sat down for a meal in the chill out lounge and had a wee tipple or two or was it 4, Who's counting :) Then as the Meal drew to an end. The heavy chat was destined to resume. So, She asks. You knew Solome? I replied that we crossed paths a few times but seemed to share many of the same passions. We unfortunately were not really in contact but we flew in the same direction if you know what I mean. Solome was much older than me but was killed before we really got the chance to bond.
Tijani then went on to explain!!! Solome had visited long ago as they all shared business interests and were part of many groups of Commander led organisations and communities. I was named after her as my Mother was Solomes best friend and they travelled far together. We were and still are part of those mentioned. Our particular Community is The Children Of The Wheel but rumour gets back to us that our friends who left this place and other places like ours after Data received from Solome which drew others out from there hidden homes to merge a Secret Society called The Children Of Raxxla but times went Cold and we are awaiting!!!
So yeah that chat lasted almost 12 hours and seen many emotions. We went to the Bar and got smashed then ended up waking up together ( OH SHHHH ). The passion could not have been more alive.
Next morning after breakfast, I had to be on my way to meet my fellow friend and CMDR out in the black as were travelling to Beagle point + Solome's Reach together and meet at next waypoint. My head full of Secrets never to be known to the Powers corrupting the Populated areas of space and the Others creeping above them and pulling the strings. We said our goodbyes and Up, Up and away. I went....
We get Off the Elevator and to the Left and Right, It Seems like a long Corridor/Hallway. I say to the Woman, May I have the pleasure of your name before we Proceed. After all you have mine. She replies, My name is Tijani and I immediately thought of the Lorens and That Solome had that as a middle name but said nothing. Oh such a fantastic name.
Anyway, There were two rather large double doors in front and they opened as the elevator closed. WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAA, A room with flashing lights everywhere and an ambient sound of Space themed music. Lot's of half circle table seating areas with chairs of all shapes and sizes, A bar in it's own section, A pool and open showering area with real jungle like plants, trees and sand, A games room and much much more but my eyes were straining to take it all in.
Tijani said to me, We have never had a visitor and we never leave as we have many secrets that must not reach corrupt powers. So apart from a select few who make long distance runs for what we need. Not even a Cmdr has passed through we have noticed until you apart from an old friend. Here we are all Equal and like open books, No hate, no race or sex discrimination but we are a very special bunch as we inter breed to keep population alive. You be careful as it's not there safety I'd worry about or there virtue. HA HA HA.
Your welcome to stay but we must chat about your departure. She then asked many questions about my ship and I answered most but when She Asked about the name. I replied RIP SALOME my Cobra mk was named after a very dear friend whom lost her life. Infact your name sparked a few memories as Salome was her given CMDR name by her travel companions. Her name was Lady Kahina Tijani Loren. What was to come next was a shock. So will continue on next log... 07
Flying through the Distant Stars of the Dark deep black of the Galaxy and it's many wonders and juicy spots to see or visit.
I came across this Planet, It had attracted me after my FSS scan as it had a few Geological signals. So I locked onto 1 and as I was dropping from Orbital cruise, I saw this strange shape on the planet surface near where I was heading.
An un discovered but abandoned Planetary settlement!!! Time to land then Cobra and go check this place out, YAY. Landing Gear deployed and touch down with Horizons.
The Srv and me deploy from the ship from an old landing pad, Were driving round the little buildings and other structures and suddenly there is light to my right. Woo what is it, What could it be? So we arrive out side this medium size building with light appearing from inside. Holy molly, Something moved in there. So I think maybe a switch to Odyssey is needed.
Bang am in my Maverick suit looking rather dapper I must say. Door override in progress... I got in and this Woman dressed in Hot pants and a Bikini top walks up to me. She asks, Hello Commander, What brings you here and what is your name? So I replied and we chatted a bit, Warming up to each others personality. So, We begin walking through past the small lights in the Doorway and through a dark area and I'm using my torch. We go down about 30 steps to an Elevator and it then takes us down about 50 floors but very high tech and silent with it's own power source not connected to the Dead looking Settlement above. TO BE CONTINUED ON NEXT LOG.
So my journey to Beagle Point and Salome's Reach begins after doing the Amazing " Apollo 15 Expedition " Which was fun and fantastic. Many Flotilla's and Cmdrs doing some crazy stunts in Srv races, Srv hill climbing + Dropping, Ship races and fighter races. Thanks to Cmdr Yanick and his merry helpers for the super organisation and much much fun.
The Journey now continues out in the black, I'm dedicating my trip to All The Fallen Commanders that have lost there lives for many reasons in or out the game. Also to lost loved ones of those Commanders have lost out of the game. Even to some of the Player driven Characters that have entered Elite Dangerous Lore via Books written by the very Talented Commanders whom write for a living.
My Cobra is named RIP SALOME, Easily my favourite Character :) 07
The Galaxy has drawn me through many Systems in the year 3307 and taking part in the Apollo 15 expedition has led me to a planet only known for being Hosts to another Species such as The Thargoids. Yes I've discovered an Ammonia world but with a ring round it. Now I can't call these rather aggressive race " Aliens " As am sure they would say the same for Humans. WE ARE NOT ALONE!!!
Well hello there Commanders,
So I'm out in the black yet again to Celebrate Apollo 15 and a Goodbye to Horizons as we know it. Currently parked up under the bright blue wings/arms of a fine looking, Neutron star. Very pretty indeed. A nebula in bright orangey/red gazing over and around the system I'm exploring with many new found friends within the Expedition. Sorry not much in the way of Lore but I'll try mix it up later and add my twist to my journey. 07
