  1. YouTube comment from snowstalker36 :-
    1. I don’t mind revisiting CG rewards, there’s quite a few that really should have been revisited by now. Corrosion resistant cargo bays for example, and a whole bunch of the other early AX stuff. Others, like countering the blight, could have missions in that system that would count towards removing it just like the Blight status has. Maybe the historically afflicted systems like Lave should get the Blight tag again until it’s cleared instead of that tag currently only being for factions? I do agree that these special engineered rewards are being revisited to quickly and too often though.

Mostly Clueless

  1. From Domzilla2112 – When using collector limpets you can have them ignore certain items by going to the contacts screen and setting ‘add to ignore list’ next to the item. Good for collecting materials and ignoring stolen cargo after a battle.

Any other business

  1. Go round the old crew and see what they’re going to do next.
  2. I have a thing – promise I’ll be quick  –  psy
