A quick heads up on something cool and a little bit Elite-related.My dad is involved with the Institution of Structural Engineers Educational Charity which runs an annual International Young Engineers Design Competition. This year they decided on a space theme, so he foolishly asked me for some ideas. I sent him a bunch of ED screenshots of Ocellus and Coriolis space stations and said “What about one of these?”.
….long story short:https://www.istructe.org/about-us/funds-and-donations/educational-trust/the-young-structural-engineers-internationalThought I’d let you know as it would be cool to spread the word in case any Cmdrs out there are real life engineers and want to have a go…. and because it’s another of those cool “ED influences real world science and engineering” stories.
Great to meet some of you at Elitemeet, which was an awesome day.
Thanks for all your work on the podcast, great stuff – Keep doing what you do.

Formindine Rift – Now that all the bases have been discovered, there was a daring heist on Danelle’s Progress (The only market place to buy Alloys) by a Cobra using the call sign of Lima Uniform Charlie (Could it be the return of Commander Luciano Prestigio Giovanni?)

In game news
Poor Ishmael Palin (the prominent Barnicle expert) so far has been attacked by pirates, kidnapped and finally rescued. However his bad luck has continued as he’s now contracted the Cerberus Plague. You’d think someone has it in for him, he’s having so much bad luck. 😉
The campaign from the Canonn Interstellar Research Group to establish a new research outpost in the Col 285 Sector IX-T d3-43 system has been successful. A new outpost will be constructed ‘soon’ which will help with more research into the UA.
A rogue Farragut Battle Cruiser somewhere? There were reports last week of a Federal Battle Cruiser with Pirate markings in the LHS 3447.
Speaking of Farragut Battle Cruisers, the construction of the Latest Cruiser in the Beti Hydri system has the Empire worried. If more cruisers are constructed, sources close to Admiral Denton Patreus say that the empire might have to respond in kind.
In response to the New Battle Cruiser and rhetoric coming from the Empire; the Alliance has held a diplomatic summit at the Alliance Capital looking at possible responses.
Main Discussion – DDF Lazerus
Default In-game choices to be made by the DDF
“It’s been a long time, but we are finally able to move towards some of the things we discussed during the Kickstarter with respect to the DDF and the ability of members to decide together on significant actions within the game. There are some big events coming to the game later this year (in relation to an alien species – trying to minimise spoilers here!), and members will decide where these events first take place, and how the process moves on down the line. This will be by voting on the DDF forum with a choice of possible locations. As the events unfold, there will be further such choices going forwards.”
