l rewarded my little Krait to a fresh coat of paint and a little refit. I think she looks good with the body kit. slightly reconfigured her layout with the limited options here and got another half lightyear on to her jump range, which will always be useful. Time now to depart back to the bubble, via a suspected guardian site in the Empyrian Straits
Departed Colonia 27/12/2018 and travelled to Explorers Anchorage, via Beagle Point and Sagittarius A*
Spent 308 days in space and gathered 67 pages of data, which took nearly an hour to cash in. Total Stars Scanned - 8,314 Total Planets Scanned - 40,492

still 106 jumps to go till Sag' A though
Just hoped over into Empyrean Straits, not much interest in the 1st system, One K & M Star and a gas giant. At this point however i think my plotted route will zig-zag across the border for a good few hops
Interesting little system Contains a Ringed Earth-like world in orbit around a ringed Class IV gas giant. Technically it's not a moon as it's too far from the Gas giant, but for all intents it is.
so 4 days after saying it doesn't happen often I get another system where planet and moon are both terraformable
Weqeae XO-R d4-10 4 & 4a
but in Greerae NN-T d3-87 there is a terraformable world who's moon is also terraformable
Just reached the other side of the inter arm gap known as "the Torment" and entered the Eurus region of the Norma Arm.
Another bleak region of space with most systems again being just stars or if any planets they were mostly rocks.
I did find one system that was profitable with 5 HMC and an ELW
399 jumps left till Sag A
Arrived at Pria Free YE-Q D5-14 (Don't these names just roll off the tongue) Overall this legs took 150 jumps compared to the initial 152 Estimated, so on balance the navcomp recalculations between sessions do seem to be in the pilots favour. Total estimated exploration data is currently 2.23 billion
I have now decided I will go direct to Sagittarius A, which is just under 20k light years away or 496 Jumps
Well not really but I've been in the outer rim for such a long time it's strange to see the black with so many bright spots again.
