Welcome to the first exploration expedition focused on the far-flung inhabited stations, the Outer Rim Station tour!

This expedition is planned as a station and nebula tour, intended to introduce and make better known some of the furthest outposts of humanity. Commanders are invited to fly their smaller explorer ships (The stations could get their large pads clogged up, if everyone is in a conda) and to master their camera controls, since thanks to the nebulae there will be many photo opportunities!

The organizer Lance 'Spacecat' D. will be flying his Type-6e to set the tone, and has prepared a tour document which you are invited to read here: https://tinyurl.com/y9kcmb5k

  • The pace of the expedition will be moderately quick with 2-3 waypoints per week. But the distances are relatively short.
  • For the social aspect, I invite folks to join the Fleetcomm private group and discord server. (We strive to meet around 23:00 Galmap Time for western hemisphere. 17:00 for eastern hemisphere.)
  • Take the time to read the tour document, the waypoints through Barnard's loop are difficult due to permit-locked sectors.
  • During the expedition, let's put our best pictures on the forums, the finest ones I will add to the tour document.
