    The homeworld or current staging are is almost certainly the system in the Col 70 permit locked region where the probes point to. That's been known for a long time. It also approximately corresponds to where the Thargoid homeworld of Miacke was located in FFE. Whether that's their actual world or origin, or just their primary base in our galaxy (it's often speculated they aren't from around here) who knows!

    There's always been a MKIII, at least for 150 years or so. The MKII was a failure and the MKI looked quite different. I assume it's an older MK III, just like this: is a 2016 Peugeot 306: and this is a 1993 peugeot 306:

    Ah damn. I feel another Rift Expedition coming on. Last time I was there I only went as far as the Zazura, I'd quite like to see about that permit locked area right on the rim.

    I like it! One thing to alter, the Dynasty expeditions were before we had FSD. They were using the old class 2b hyperdrive and Stardreamer tech. That's why it took them six months to get out there. It's also before the invention of AFMUs and back then ships needed maintenance on a regular basis or things would break down, that's why them having to take spare parts along is significant. Other than that, nicely crafted theory :)

    INRA, if it was anything, was more of a government organisation like Aegis, but just like Aegis I assume they also used outside contractors for a bunch of stuff, and maybe obtained financing from whoever offered it. That does leave them open to powerful megacorp meddling, we already know Sirius tested a drive that probably formed the basis of our FSD in 2250ish in the Antares. We also know (suspect) from iirc Premonition that Turner confirms the FSD came from captured Thargoid tech. We know Sirius was the first megacorp, and it's heavily involved in hyperdrive tech, exploration and suchlike. It's not a big leap to suspect Sirius obtained Thargoid hyperdrive research from INRA to gain an advantage. there's no telling what else Sirius might have "purchased".

    Fair enough, that's a good point! Although it's worth noting that Thargoids might well be fine with being in near vacuum (the ground bases don't show any signs of ever being vacuum sealed), and ammonia remains liquid at lower pressures at low temperatures (I think?!?) so if I got that right them Thargoids could walk around on the surface of a planet like that without any sort of equipment (maybe a breather of some sort), low temperatures would actually be preferable to them, and if you want to test the spread of your mycoid virus against Thargoid installations and presumably the occupants then testing it in the open makes sense. But main reason, probably so we can see it in the SRV. Because following your logic, yes it makes a lot more sense to test all this in enclosed environments with controlled conditions and right next to the open pit it there's four octagonal bays that would be great for such a thing. But in this case they're clearly bays for scout ships and maybe Thargoids because the crane...

    Moribus replied to a thread Guardians Discussions in Aliens
    It's true, but also in FFE, which featured a huge amount of information on the Thargoids, in the version of the story where you achieved peace with them and shared info it becomes clear the Thargoids are peaceful and don't want to fight, but they will fight if threatened. Whether this has been retconned and we're now seeing a completely hostile version I don't know. However, personally I've never even once seen a Thargoid attacking first (unless you carry Tharg or Guardian Tech). And as we're now finding, it's ED lore than we developed a bio-weapon specifically to kill them and cause them extreme pain, despite that, the Thargoids don't appear to be particularly aggressive. I'd often thought of the Guardians as being fairly peaceful except for the latter part of their history, but then if you think about it, they're pack hunters, and they bio-engineer animals specifically for hunting, so it might be that they're less warlike on a large scale - but that doesn't necessarily mean they're less aggressive, or...

    Me and a couple of friends tested this out last night. We weren't able to see any sort of pattern. The Chime seems to play when you reach your plotted destination (not on any other jump). I've heard two different chimes for two separate INRA systems, so it doesn't appear there's a particular chime indicating (for example) INRA or "something to find on the surface". I read that the chime is linked to the power that owns the system, so there's different chimes. I'm 99% sure the chime is unrelated to discovery since I've heard it in systems with nothing except 1 star, and systems with only stars, so chances are, it's just letting you know you're arrived at your destination. However, that's just from three people messing with it for an hour, so might be wrong!

    That sounds pretty good. It's also worth considering that, (if we assume that everything we know so far is correct for the sake of discussion) that we significantly weakened the Thargoids with the Mycoid, it might be that the Guardians (or whatever they have now become) has reasoned that this is a good time to return. Could it be, that "the return", didn't mean (just) the Thargoids...? Since the previous release was "the Guardians", which basically consisted of (apparently) just some dry ruins and one mission from an engineer, that seems a bit lacking for the main title of a release, so maybe there's a lot more there that we didn't find? Also consider, in my post a while ago I was looking at the long string of Guardians sites and speculating that it might be the edge of a bubble. What if, instead of that, it's a FIREWALL between the Thargoids (col70 area) and the Guardians, maybe a string of monitoring stations or something, designed to detect if Thargoids expanded past that area. It's a bit...

    But members of the Dark Wheel have stated that the Dark Wheel faction in Shinrata isn't "the dark wheel", it's a shell group set up to distract people from the actual dark wheel... though I guess they would say that... Though it does make sense that Raxxla would be in the bubble near the old worlds, and you do need to be Elite to get there (or a backer), so that works too. I like the idea :)

    Moribus replied to a thread INRA Base Discoveries in Aliens
    It's possible they developed one as a bargaining chip? Also INRA wasn't evil necessarily, it's comparable to the development of atomic weapons in WW2, it was seen as a necessary evil to end the war, so it's entirely possible they had a lab making a vaccine on the side. It could also be a rogue project, though the logs don't really indicate that.

    I think it held a Thargoid. The parts littered around the floor don't look like they come from a ship to me. The gripping arm looks like it would fit the Thargoid size we get from FFE and approximations from the size of the chambers in the bases. Thargoids are a lot bigger than us.

    I don't think we know that yet do we? In FFE yes the timeline is that INRA existed prior to the first Thargoid war, but we know that not all history from FFE is lore, so I think until we get definite dates it might be best to not assume anything.
