"Well, it's just a bit, you know -- dull at times in Colonia", my partner in crime said, putting his feet up on the console. "I mean there's Jaques Bar, but they're all out of the good stuff, and then there's the Customs people who ... well, want to spoil the party"

And so the idea was born. The citizens of Colonia have been working hard to build their new home, and now it's time they got a reward, regardless of what Customs might like to think. So with the aid of The East India Company and publicity via Lave Radio, an expedition was put together with the following goals:

  • Explore the "high route" to Colonia. Away from the well-trodden route via the Colonia Connection, the high route is replete with unexplored neutron stars and far away from Customs patrols, making it just ideal for the long-distance smuggler and highly profitable for the explorers.
  • Bring the first load of booty - anything intoxicating, but in particular Onionhead and Lavian Brandy for Colonia citizens to enjoy, to resupply Jaques Bar - sneaking it into Jaques Station, past Colonia's most watchful customs presence...
  • Be in Colonia just in time for the Q4 Exploration updates! Get a head start on the new exploration mechanics! Get on one of the very last expeditions where "jonking" is still a thing!

This expedition is open to everyone. You don't have to bring cargo if you can't carry it - the whales will be bringing in the bulk of it, and we're glad to have any explorers, travellers, photographers, or anyone else. After all, the more ships, the more we can distract Jaques Customs on arrival.
