  1. Eid was weak..

Main discussion

  1. We wonder what could be in update 12 and why no-one’s talking about it? We could talk about how ‘lucky’ we are with ARX being cosmetics only because I look at some MMOs and they nickle and dime you all over the place and now some are going NFT mad! Would you pay for smaller updates i.e. a full VR upgrade, Base Building?

  2. The complete Fleet Carrier :-
  3. Buckyball Results :-
    1. LOCATION : Tollan
    2. Exploring the unknown. – Colonia, Sag A*, Beagle Point and more. Lead by CMDR Digitalmind and his carrier the USS Minbari on a 6 month or longer journey into the black. The journey Begins on April 30th at 2:30am UTC. Launching from the Tollan System, our initial leg of the journey is from the Bubble to Colonia using the new Colonia Bridge. Our second stage is Colonia to Sagittarius A* in a very round about way. We will be exploring The Inner Scutum Centarus Arm, The inner-Orion Persuses Conflux and Oldin’s Hold towards Sagittarius A*. Our third stage will be the toughest. Sagittarius A* to Beagle Point. We will be publishing regular updates and details about stops and ETAs during the journey in our Discord and Inara page throughout our Journey. This expedition is open to ALL CMDRs, new or veterans, wishing to go exploring deep space and are very welcome to jump on the carrier at any time. We recommend bringing at least 1 long range (50ly jump range is recommended) exploration ship and 1 mining ship, both can be stored on the USS Minbari at any time. Any CMDRs willing to help mine fuel for the carrier along the journey would be most appreciated. Occasionally I will be opening up a buy order on the carrier for Tritium as an added benefit for helping to fuel the journey. The USS Minbari will have all required modules needed for exploration including repair, Universal Cartographics, outfitting (exploration, mining modules etc) and Armory. Carrier interiors and visa genomics are also available on the USS Minbari. ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS: Tritium Donations are nice but not necessary.

One Comment:

  1. Cmdr Ned McReady

    I feel I need to set the record straight concerning the claim that I single-handedly
    defeated the Thargoids in the Lembass system.

    Whilst it SEEMED that I was fighting them alone, it is entirely conceivable that I had help in the half-hour of daily shut-eye I succumb-to between shifts; something for which I evidently castigate myself.

    I should also confess that whilst I always answer the call to arms,
    sometimes that answer is “No” when the call is “Defeat the Hydra threat”!
    I have found this particular spikey beast is just beyond the limit of my Scarab combat skills.

    I know this is unacceptable, and vow to improve the only way I know how: by pulling more petals and stealing more hearts.

    Your humble and dutiful AX pilot, Cmdr Ned McReady.
