2001: A Space Odyssey

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

So many new signatures. I fear we have been hit by Hyperion. Yep, examining our bookmark collection shows that my glorious leader has been scanning and already found four wormholes in our home system, including a second that will now persist. It's to class 4 w-space, which is what I ...

Deathrace 2000

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

The skinny wormhole of the three in the low-sec system in Black Rise is an N432, of course. An outbound connection to class 5 w-space. I suppose I can take a look, although I'm not expecting to find much to catch unawares through an outward wormhole. I jump through to ...

Space: 1999

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

There are no anomalies I care to clear tonight, but two new signatures grab my attention. For a second they do, at least. My glorious leader has scanned them both, resolving two pockets of gas, bookmarking them for reference. She's also found our static wormhole, which looks to be unopened. ...

Slowly getting to high-sec

Saturday, September 20th, 2014

One good anomaly beckons to me in our home system. I continue to ignore the ghost site, resolve our static wormhole—the only signature in the system—and warp to our tower to take the Golem marauder on another excursion. It's pretty straightforward, popping Sleepers, having the wrecks lazily pulled towards me ...

Missing mining by moments

Friday, September 19th, 2014

Well, ain't this place a geographical oddity? Exploring through a K162 wormhole from low-sec takes me to a class 2 w-space system with only two planets, anomalies scattered between them, but one planet hogging all of the signatures. It's a curious sight indeed. My directional scanner is clear of just ...

Little profit, little activity

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

I have a bit of me time to start the evening. There are anomalies piling up in the home system and just the two signatures. Launching probes to scan resolves our static wormhole as the only connection, the other signature being a gas site. Our system is isolated, letting me ...

Mission: Anomalous

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

We have more anomalies than I almost know what to do with. There are a handful of good ones too, but what can I do with them? I've finished my review of Oblivion, unless I want to mention the bombastic score too, but I think I've done enough. I suppose ...

Bumbling through minor activity

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

To high-sec to scan, back to the plan. Four signatures wait to be poked, four wormholes get returned as results. One is skinny, making it an outbound link, three feel pretty normal for K162s. Warping around sends me to a K162 from class 2 w-space, one from class 3 w-space, ...

Black hole Imicus

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Mission accomplished. A scant twenty minutes or so since coming on-line has seen me brutally destroy a rookie frigate with extreme prejudice—albeit without a pilot—and find a route back to our w-space home for my glorious leader. I think I'm doing pretty well so far this evening, and although the ...

Finding a way home for Fin

Sunday, September 14th, 2014

I return after a little time away exploring what is new and currently relevant in the world of SF, and quasi-stalking Christopher Priest, to see the return of my glorious leader. Almost. Fin has got herself shut out of our home w-space system, and rather than waste time trying to ...
