Commander's Log: May 25, 3307elite elite-dangerous writing in-universe
I made it to the Herbig Ae/Be star in the Aucopp QD-B E0 system on schedule today. It was a sight to behold, a brilliant yellow with a mass 4.6 times that of Sol, yet only 1/8th the radius. The only thing else in the system is a thin belt of asteroids, so I have to leave the ship adrift for tonight. I don’t want to keep jumping around finding a suitable planet to land on and “set up camp” if you could call it that. It was a bit tiring today.
Other notable things I came across today include:
- Jump 25: Swoiowns PT-Z e16-16 Planet 1, an Ammonia World
- Jump 33: Prooe Drye HT-F d12-29
- Planet A4: A terraformable High Metal Content World
- Planets A6 and A7: Similarly sized Water Worlds locked in a binary orbit
- Jump 34: Prooe Drye YJ-M b54-2 Planet 3, a Water World with an Argon atmosphere
- Jump 42: Aucopp MY-E c1 Planet 5, a Class II Giant with 775.5 Earth masses but only 5.28 G gravity.
I was happy to see on Galnet that The Oracle was re-boosted into a stable orbit after engineers repaired the station’s thrusters. That could’ve been a massive disaster. With the intense Alliance election, the Aegis megaship being excluded from Federation space, and Thargoid attacks on the rise, I’m glad I’m all the way out here. Sure, it’s only 2,200 light years from the bubble, but I feel a bit safer not having to deal with all the crazy stuff going on. I still don’t know where I want to go next, perhaps I’ll just go through all the different stars I have yet to confirm in my codex. I’ve made it unscathed here, only one neutron jump so far in this outing, so the only damage is 1% on the FSD, and stores are still full.
Well, that’s enough for today. I need a good night’s sleep, it’s been a while since I’ve gone out into the black.
