    Great read Cmdr; many thanks for sharing this with the community. Now, get yourself appointed as the official scribe of an exped 'cos your prose is brilliant!

    Made some headlines.

    I still want to thank anyone who had the patience of going through all my long-winded ramblings and the countless typos and funny errors left around, I didn't expect that a "simple" straight-line traveling through a mostly random-generated scenery could end up to be such a good gaming experience.

    Now I'm left wondering if I could/should make a blooper reel out of the several clips of "The Tumbling Initiative" staying true to its name ...

    Erm... duuuh! Sure you should! Also, fun fact - I've stumbled upon CMDR Aken 2 years back when starting with Alpha Orbital when he was of great help gathering various stats needed for the ship comparison tools.

    Anywho - back on topic! I loved the story and encourage the rest of you to contact me if you want to publish your own adventures as well. I'm sure Elite is full of them, which is the main reason the community is so friendly and supportive.

    Fly safe o7

    Hey Skip ... you interested in adding old stories to your site? I guess I could convert these for you if you think they're worthy.

    How did you convert Aken's forum posts ... is there a particular format you cut and pasted it into?

    Well it's the fact he wrote it as a RP story/cmdr log that caught my attention. I really liked that - it's not just random notes about stuff he found. And no... there's no specific template or format. I just copied the text and edited some tiny parts to be more consistent with the "this is a log from a commander with space dementia on crackers" theme.

    Send me a PM or contact me via email if you want to talk about AO posts so we don't go too much into OT here.

    Good job, that was a nice read the way you laid it out like that!
