So I just got done with the trip. Before hitting the last system I found this when I jumped into a system.
The last system I found a ship. It looks like it's apart of The Club where they sent out these ships with sleepers or whatever on them. And basically The Club got what it wanted, but the people helping them died by their hands. There is logs on the ship basically saying some sleeper agents went nuts and killed the ship. There is logs from what I'm guessing is someone who came out here much later. I'm not sure when. And they mention there was floating bodies all over the place. Some with drinks still in their hands. All I know is they found this ship before the attack or when people linked this to The Club getting us ready for the attack.
Now that is done, I honestly don't know what is next. I can go back, but I doubt I will be in these parts again. I might be able to find something, but I need to see where the most amount of people been. Any case, maybe something will come up.
So I made it out to the next point, and between I stopped at a black hole.
Anyways all I'm seeing is some beacon saying the following.
There honestly isn't enough info to find out where the base is or is it here at this beacon. Like did a random mix of ships meet here at this spot? The good news is I gotten a badge for going into the area :D Formidine Rifter
Anyways, a skip to the next point and I found something saying some random numbers and letters. It has something to do with The Club, and it has something to do with now a known location but a while back wasn't. Some other people looked into this, and they released the info. It gets pretty in depth.
Right now I'm between this and the next point.
I got the permit and made it to the .
Before taking off I took the following pictures.
At the system I took the following.
In Synuefe IL-N c23-15 I found a Guardian Beacon. I couldn't do anything with it since looking up these it turns out I needed to shoot it. I did however take a picture
I found someone who made a video on what would happen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwE5X712CBw
Anyways, I made it to a Nebula and I started to take a look at the rest of the trip. It has been a while since I slept in the ship this far from anyone. And while that isn't a problem, I notice the last system wants me to go pretty far out. I have to seriously think about this since the trip will take a while to get there and back home. Like I thought all the systems was in the bubble.
Like on one hand I'm pretty far away and I can't do much than what I've done for so long. On the other hand, I am in the best exploration ship I have and I might come back with enough data to do most anything I want.
Going to the next system, I found I needed a permit to get in it. I ended up doing some missions to try to get in and took the following pictures.
The following is from Adenets. I had my drone take it.
The following is at Megrez. I just wish I knew the station was 28,000ls from the sun.
Anyways, I've gotten about maybe a quarter or halfway there. I hate how I can't just bribe or whatever myself into the system and I just need to make some group like me enough. If I get lucky maybe I can just do that and bribe my way to have a better rep. But I doubt it.
Anyways, hopefully next time I can get into the system.
I found the Thetis Generation Ship for the next system. The story behind this is there was some cyber virus or something that caused voices to play or sounds that sounded like voices. It drove the people on the ship mad. I went to the antenna and it is making an odd sound. But I didn't hear any logs or anything like that. Looking in the known database, I found others recorded what was said in the logs. Kinda sad.
Anyways, what interest me is in the logs it said something about the odd sound came on the ship about 15 ly from here.
This is the systems it could be. There might be others, but this might be worth looking when I'm done with this trip. I asked others if they looked into it. Maybe someone found something or maybe there isn't anything. Maybe it was just a glitch.
I took some pictures
I looked at one of the things on the side, and found trees were growing inside. Also the lights were working. I seen the grass didn't overtake the sidewalks. I have to wonder if someone is taking care of it. Or maybe it is robots that are still working.
The following location looks like it is where the thargoid was first seen and the person stayed alive.
Anyways, I'm currently at HIP 12099. I found John Jameson wreck. It's a sad story about what happen. It looks like he was told by sending some computer virus to their ship, it will keep the thargoid from traveling FTL. He went, and found they really wanted to kill thousands of them and the government wanted to cover it up. So after the weapon was release, the ship would crash into a nearby planet. When he died, he was leaving messages for his son since he missed his birthday.
Someone capture all the audio here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_veUCJ6Y1E
This was found in the prior system. I couldn't find it, but someone released what is to be seen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=16&v=X88iM_0_t1s&feature=emb_logo
I'm sitting next to the ship for now.
So I decided to just use the big ship to make this trip a lot faster. I think if I don't, then I won't be able to complete the expedition since life will get in the way real quick.
Anyways, I took the passenger ship out and did a number of missions. One of the missions I went to a beacon and it said this.
I had some fun doing this, and because my dolphin is very limited. I took a look at what it would cost to buy a fitted beluga. It looks like it will be around 5 mil or 6 mil. For something I might only use a handful of times, I'm not sure if I want to go down that road. One of my biggest problems with it is the ship can't be used for much, playing taxi takes a lot of time, and there is a lot of downsides. Like fueling up takes a while.
Anyways, I'm at the next way point and I am assuming I will knock out a few tomorrow or the next day. The next place is only 2 jumps. For the current system, it looks like the big deal is this is where the Empire started. Based on things, it looks like I been here already a long time ago. Most likely even have pictures of all the stuff.
Below is pictures of what the beacons said
I always love going into Empire space. While I'm iffy about them using slaves. They have some of the nicest looking stuff. My ship looks way out of place here.
Anyways, the next one I don't think I been there before and I think there is going to be something worth taking pictures of there
So I went to the first system on the exploration after SOL. After getting there a thought came up. These systems are extremely close to each other. Why don't I just take one of the smaller ships out. Like I fly the big one Berry pretty much all the time. Why don't I just fly maybe the MK3 or Dolphin. If I do the Dolphin, I might be able to make a little from moving people if they are going to any of the given locations. I have the ships coming to SOL, and I will think about it.
Any case, it doesn't look like this trip will show that much. But there is navigation beacons out there. I scan the ones in the system I just came from. Below is images of what was said. (side note: I wack the first beacon because I forgot the ship keeps moving forward pretty fast sometimes when it gets out of hyper space. I need to not do that since it damage my ship a little)
I'm back at SOL, and going to take a short break before starting the next tour. I'm not sure when I will, but there is no rush in this one since the end date is a few months.
Anyways, on my way back to SOL I had problems getting to the highway. The good news is I found a load of systems that no one has been to. The bad news is no system I had knew how to get to the highway from where I was until I was 30 or 40 jumps in.
On my way I got a few picture.
It looks like the first waypoint is about 1 jump from SOL, and I think the following is just 1 more. So this will be an easy trip. Because the systems I think will have some history. I should look it up.
I decided to just go home to SOL. The problem with the current tour which I dropped out of, there was no way I could get it done even with the months to do it. I started it too late, and I haven't notice until now that I can't jump as much as I use to.
The new tour is called Elite Dangerous Lore Tour, and it starts in SOL. It's only a handful of jumps. Looking at my log it looks like I'm about 6,166.58 ly right now, and the total distance for this one is around 19,769.22 ly. Something highly doable.
Now what got me interested into this tour is it is focused on objects and location. Where I believe the tour I just ended, it was random plots on the map outside of a handful of places. So I should be able to get some good shots of things, and maybe learn more about the area.
So I'm a number of jumps out, and I found a number of systems. Some look great like the following.
Anyways, due to how much it will take out of me to complete this run, the fact I just started it, and I'm not sure if I want to do it anyways. I might head back home. But we will see soon.
