    On the Horizon
    All the latest for Elite Dangerous: Horizons


    This week Aegis have announced a military strike on Electra, targeting the cluster of Thargoids occupying the system. This will be the second strike after the success of Operation Andronicus.

    Commanders who deliver Thargoid materials and Combat Bonds will earn rewards for taking part in the campaign. If the organisation's goals are met, commanders will unlock brand new technology to fight the Thargoid threat.

    The campaigns begin on the 11th of November and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately. See the full details here

    Aegis has announced a second military strike on a Thargoid-occupied system, following the success of Operation Andronicus. The operation will focus on Electra, where high concentrations of Thargoid vessels have been reported. The aims are to reduce the number of Thargoid vessels in Electra, and to gather Thargoid material for the testing of Aegis’s anti-Thargoid technologies.

    With regard to the Aegis initiative: First, I was hoping that there was more to Thargoids than them being merely available for pewpewpew purposes (unless FD have encoded other possibilities into the scripts I've yet to see), though it's nice you can participate using non-invasive measures by collecting tissue samples. Second, is this new technology available only to those who participate in the CGs in open or solo, or will this technology eventually be available to all regardless? Hopefully the latter.
