    Greetings Cmdr!

    Thought I’d just leave a small comment here.
    To me, as an explorer the DSSA project is so much appreciated and I’m happy to see that the “Chrysaetos Refuge” has arrived at its destination in the Aquila’s Halo region. I am currently on my way back to the bubble after completing the Perseus Reach expedition and I departed from Salome’s Reach about two weeks ago. My main goal on the return is to explore the outer regions down to the Formidine Rift and your carrier will be an appreciated stop this far into the black.

    I just entered the Outer Scutum Centaurus Arm region yesterday and will shortly dock with another DSSA carrier; the “Solsen’s Alastor”.

    Will be back with another update when I’m safely docked with the “Chrysaetos Refuge”.

    Thanks for creating this safe haven almost 50 000LY’s from home!

    Cmdr XhaleR

      Right on Cmdr!

      We will keep the docking bay lights on for you.
      The repair, refuel, rearm and cartography services will always be available at the “Chrysaetos Refuge” and no service charges will ever be applied to any explorer brave and bold enough to travel this far into the void. That’s a guarantee.
      I’m grateful to the organizers of this FleetComm initiative to be able to pay the gift of exploration forward.

      Fly safe and o7

    Captain’s log 09.08.3306:

    After 42 270LY’s of exploration along the outer edge of the galaxy it was great to finally touch down on the landing pad of the DSSA “Chrysaetos Refuge”. It’s late at night and other than the carrier crew, I seem to be the only one visiting at the moment.

    Almost four weeks has passed since I left the “Solsen’s Alastor”, but with a lot of manual route planning along the way I had to be careful not getting into trouble. I’ve taken good care of the “Limo-Nade” so there was nothing but some minor repairs. With a full tank and a new paintjob she’s looking as good as new!

    I have discovered some really great places along the way, but the real gem was to find a pair of binary ELW’s at the very tip of the Scutum-Centaurus arm in Tyreanue QT-O d7-3. As a small contribution to the DSSA project, I’ve sold over a billion worth of explorer data, happily leaving my 25% to the carrier account.

    Sitting in the cockpit with a glass of Lavian Brandy enjoying the view of the galaxy before lowering the “Limo-Nade” down to the hangar and calling it a day.

    Thanks for beeing here!

      It’s good to have you aboard Cmdr.
      I myself am out in the void touring the other DSSA carriers in the galaxy, slowing making my way through the Outer Arm region.
      It’s quiet in Aquila’s Halo region but I’m glad Gaia and the rest of the bridge crew gave you a warm welcome.
      Thanks so much for your contribution towards carrier upkeep costs. That bounty of new discoveries will certainly make a difference to carrier funds for the rest of 3306.
      It’s explorers such as yourself that are the reason I choose to be part of the DSSA project, and pay forward the wonder of discovery and innate human curiosity.
      Wherever your onward journey takes you, fly safe Cmdr.
