  3. Interstellar Initiative – The Galconda – Overview of Phases
    1. Play as an introduction to it (Takes about 10 minutes so we can have a nice snooze)
  4. Frontier Close EEE
    “I wanted to take this opportunity to give you an update on what is happening with EEE; as you all know, we’ve not been able to provide much support to the EEE system since the start of the year. Originally, our vision for EEE was to have a server set up to bring groups together with Frontier to support your events and activities. After I took over, its original focus shifted slightly.

    And toward the start of this year, when I announced that we will not be able to carry on the monthly meetings, I spoke of revamping and redesigning EEE. As a team, we’re taking a wider look at all of projects, and as we manage multiple projects, I want to ensure that anything we run is given the care and attention it deserves.

    As this is not something I’m able to promise with EEE at the current time, rather than continue to keep it open, I will be closing EEE.

    It’s worth mentioning that supporting our player groups (and Squadrons) is something we obviously still care very strongly about and the community team are available. You can still contact us if you need our support, have an awesome ideas to share or need assistance.

    I’d like to also take the opportunity to thank each and every one of you who contributed here, be that in the form of our monthly meetings, discussions with the devs, feedback sharing sessions or when we just had randomly chatted about something.

    While EEE will be closed, we’re still contactable, and I implore you to reach out to myself, Paige (PaigeHarveyFDEV#9598) and Stephen (TheBenedetti#0835) whenever you wish!”
