Elite Dangerous Catch-All

I launched Elite: Dangerous again tonight. It seemed appropriate for my first real gaming session after a move-inflicted hiatus and various other events and stresses.

Finding out that the Imperial Federalist Labour Party of Veloxi's Vixens is down to negligible influence at Tombaugh Station did hurt a little. On the other hand, the universe is still out there. And just flying a spaceship in E:D still feels good, and the sound design in this game continues to amaze me anew every time I play.

Hey I'm Commander Zoso Ryder on PC and am always looking for friends. I'm in a squadron that is large enough; yet not loud - people chat primarily in a Discord channel. I hoped to find a GWJ squad, but when I came to the game, there were little goodjer pilots flying.

Recently, I'm seeing several of you on my friends' list. I've just finished my first exploration expedition; earning 112million credits from data, and reaching pioneer. Working on enjoying both Kraits that I bought upon returning, as well as my new Alliance Cheiftian.

Going to just mission around the surrounding area of my Squadron's home systems for a while, until I feel like I've got my Phantom's jump range high enough to head out again. My goal is to visit each section of the galaxy, like one might want to pop into each state as they travel the US.

If it's any consolation, the faction can never be fully booted out of Orcus since it's their home system.
Lukyanenko Enterprise in Asvinici system is the new Tombaugh!

Seems that Galnet is coming back in the form of a new long-term story line with linked community events. About time.

Starting with clearly recycled thargoid attacked station assets (but now they're terrorists duh) isn't what I'd call a strong start, but it's something.

All my ships are stored in Tombaugh station so when I finally log in it's going to be really weird not being greeted by the Vixen's representative. I forget his name.
