    There’s so much to discover in both the Guardians and Elite Dangerous 1.7 expansions, but you’ll have to uncover some of the mysteries yourselves…


    As always, you can hear the latest news and updates directly from the development team on our Forums, Twitter, Facebook, Community Homepage, and right her

    This week saw the debut of a brand new livestream series: The Elite Dangerous Open.

    We spent plenty of time livestreaming in Private Groups with our wonderful communities and their groups, but we wanted to do something fun that absolutely anybody can join in with  in Open Play if they want. It could be chaotic, but that's partly the point... will you help or hinder these devs in their endeavors?

    The round saw Adam Woods face off against Dav Stott in a Conflict Zone Clash. Who was the Victor? Watch the livestream recap to find out.
























    We've had a couple of awesome races captured for your viewing pleasure.

    The Hutton Truckers decided to race their Type 6's around a canyon, and the results were excellent, turns out the bulky trading ship can navigate the sharpest of turns in the right hands.

    Not to be outdone, the Paladin Consortium had a race of their own to commemorate their first anniversary. This brilliantly produced video makes for a thrilling watch.























    Welcome to our weekly roundup of news stories and events in the Elite: Dangerous galaxy.


    The governing body of the Colonia system has launched a campaign to expand infrastructure and manufacturing facilities in the region. The initiative is intended to support future colonisation of the Colonia Nebula, and address the needs of the growing Colonia community. In support of this initiative, the Colonia Council has placed an open order for mined palladium, and has promised to reward pilots who deliver the required material to Jaques Station in the Colonia system.

    The Aramzahd Empire Party has announced that its appeal for commodities for the Gathering 3302 has received the wholehearted support of the galactic community. Hundreds of pilots responded to the organisation’s request for rare foods and alcohol, resulting in a massive influx of deliveries to the Norman–Mavis's Bingo Palace starport. The organisation has also confirmed that its campaign to clear the Aramzahd system of agitators was equally successful, thanks to the many independent combat pilots who supported the operation.

    Board members of MetaDrive Inc. have announced the sale of MetaDrive Inc. to the Sirius Corporation. At a press conference, acting Chair Rosaline Merden said the MetaDrive brand would continue to go from strength to strength as part of the Sirius Corporation.

    Gyvatices Crimson Advanced Holdings has announced plans to hold a special commemorative event for the late entrepreneur Walter Waldo. Waldo, who passed away last week, was the founder of Wonderful Walter’s Fish and Coffee Emporium, a popular galactic franchise. The organisation has placed an open order for fish and coffee in support of the event.























    Greetings, Commanders, and welcome to this week’s community goals blog. If you’re looking for a goal, the breakdown below should help:


    Strengthening the Colonia Community

    Jaques Station, Colonia – Deliver mined Palladium to Jaques Station in the Colonia system to support the growing Colonia community.


    The Walter Waldo Appeal

    Walter Dock, Gyvatices – Deliver Fish and Coffee to Walter Dock in the Gyvatices system for the Walter Waldo memorial.















    Strengthening the Colonia Community


    The Colonia Council, the governing body of the Colonia system, has launched a campaign to expand infrastructure and manufacturing facilities in the region. The initiative is intended to support future colonisation of the Colonia Nebula, and address the needs of the growing Colonia community.


    In a statement, a spokesperson for the Council elaborated on the nature of the campaign:


    “Colonia is expanding rapidly, and with an official colonisation initiative due to start soon, we need to make sure we can meet our citizens’ needs.”


    “The colony has received a lot of support from the galactic community, but if it’s going to become a fully fledged society, we need proper infrastructure.”


    In support of this initiative, the Colonia Council has placed an open order for mined Palladium, and has promised to reward pilots who deliver the required material to Jaques Station in the Colonia system.


    The campaign begins on the 20th of October 3302 and will run for two weeks. If final targets are met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.


    The Walter Waldo Appeal


    Gyvatices Crimson Advanced Holdings has announced plans to hold a special commemorative event for the late entrepreneur Walter Waldo.


    Waldo, who passed away last week, was the founder of Wonderful Walter’s Fish and Coffee Emporium, a popular galactic franchise.


    A spokesperson for GCAH released the following statement:


    “Walter was a keen fisherman and a true coffee connoisseur, so what better way to celebrate his life than with a fish and coffee festival. We’ve placed an open order for Fish and Coffee in support of the event, and set aside a generous reserve for pilots who deliver these commodities to Walter Dock.”


    The campaign begins on the 20th October 3302 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.























    And to round off this week, here's the chatter from the community this week.

    Down to Earth Astronomy over on YouTube accomplished the incredible this week, successfully docking his ship using a guitar (yes, you read that right). Watch him boldly play where no man has played before over on his Channel.

    Proceed to...mouse pad?! CMDR Vilachi posts that he has 200+ hours of play time, but still has trouble docking...

    CMDR MackTheHunter wrote up a nice guide in the form of a poster this week. How to successfully slingshot out of a stellar body of mass!

    Just say, Dr Kaii sent this video to us... not sure what this mysterious transmission is all about, but we're excited to see what he's cooking up after the success of Distant Worlds.

    See you in the black, Commanders.

    The Frontier Developments Team.
