    THE COLONIA EXPANSION


    The Colonia Council has launched a fifth initiative, once again giving the galaxy’s minor factions an opportunity to establish a permanent presence in the Colonia Nebula. For this appeal, pilots have once again been asked to deliver a specific commodity to earn their chosen faction a migration visa.









    GANDII IN CHAOS


    Recent reports from the Gandii system indicate that conflict has erupted between the Hand Gang of Gandii, an organisation closely allied with self-styled ‘pirate king’ Archon Delaine, and the Gandii Justice Party. Both factions are offering privateer bonds to combat pilots who support their cause.

    HALSEY'S CAMPAIGN CONCLUDES

    Former Federal president Jasmina Halsey has announced that her campaign to provide relief for those at Dirichlet Orbital has been a resounding success. She said this was a huge humanitarian effort on behalf of thousands of refugees, and contributing pilots have the gratitude of every man, woman and child at Dirichlet Orbital.









    ALIEN TSAR MAKES STATEMENT

    The Federal Navy has appointed Admiral Aden Tanner to the newly created role of Chief of Federal Security, and ordered him to investigate the mysterious ships seen throughout human-inhabited space. Tanner has stated these craft are active primarily within the Pleiades Nebula and around the Maia and Merope systems, and has urged the galactic community to treat these strange ships with extreme caution.

    PIXEL PERFECT

    The wonderful community banded together to immortalised ED on the r/place social experiment with the Elite Dangerous logo. Great work by all involved!









    TO BATTLE!

    The talented Miguel Johnson has produced this epic video of an intense Elite Dangerous battle with some rousing music he composed himself. If this doesn't get you fired up for a space fight, nothing will.

    A STELLAR VIEW

    CMDR Stelcio arrived at Palin Research Station, and has sent back this glorious shot of a brown dwarf. Stunning!





    See you in the black, Commanders

    I'm interested in seeing if the 2.3 Update brings a fix (FINALLY!) for the pilot's joystick hand moving when using Keyboard & Mouse. Also ROTATIONAL CORRECTION needs fixing yet again else there is totally no need for a toggle at all. Why leave in bugs that are "known"?
