Before this trip I had never completed any long distance exploration trip in Elite. Starting the trip, my exploration rank was only Trailblazer (< 4 mil Cr earned) with 72% progress to Pathfinder (unlocked at 10 mil cr earned). My trips always unintentionally and abruptly ended less than 10k ly...

Right now I'm just throwing this idea out there. But, because we have things like cupid's arrow, I was thinking about a month long Valentines Expedition for February 2020. Would anyone be up for this? If so, what systems/planets do you believe is Valentines themed?
Maybe we can have another...

Hello everyone! This has been wracking at my head a little, but as I've been planning a personal expedition of my own, I've realized it's gonna be kind of hard doing this alone.
While this expedition may or may not be incredibly planned out, I was at least hoping to see if anyone would be...
Closely related to the awesome research Stealthie is doing, I thought I'd see what the interest is among DW2 participants for an official (or unofficial, or casual) expedition following the Voyager Trail back to the bubble.
OFFICIAL VOYAGER TRAIL EXPEDITION OPTION?
I couldn't find anything...
Note: Although we are 'underway' - as an alternate route back to the Bubble at the conclusion of DW2 - we will be accepting new expedition members at least through the end of June 2019!
Fresh off my first trip to Beagle Point and the far side of the galaxy via the...

Most of you probably haven't heard of me but if you do, you'll understand what makes this day so special to me.
At this day, one year ago I started my Youtube-Series "Strange Worlds" together with my friend Zach.
It all started with the idea of showing people what you can...
I'm a relative newcomer to Elite and having a blast (at it a couple of months). I've been doing various missions (some bounty-hunting, data hauling missions, exploration) and I've earned enough credits to outfit my Cobra MKIII with A-rated gear, purchased an Imperial Courier, and recently...
It is, the most beautiful sight in the Galaxy.
On the Galaxy.
Basking done right.
I'm just glad to be home safe and sound at Achenar. [noob]
Hey what's with all these stations on fire? [mad]
I leave you guys for a couple months and there's aliens now???
This is why we cant have nice...

I am about to go on another expedition in my Anaconda - and this time I am thinking about taking a fighter bay with me, but how safe it is to leave the AI by the helm - say in an asteroid field? Can it handle the “Follow Me” command in narrow/more difficult places?
I have never had a fighter...

Became a bounty hunter in my old Cobra Mk3 in order to earn enough credits to buy and outfit the Asp Explorer. Love this ship! Got her a nice paint job and set out for the far reaches of the Perseus Arm.

Knights of Karma INRA Expedition
The Knights of Karma welcomes all to this small expedition to the recently discovered INRA research bases. This will take you to the 6 surface installations discovered by various CMDRs. The installations supposedly have secrets that many would not like the...
The purpose of this expedition is to see the wonders of the galaxy and to run in tandem with the Dead End Circumnavigation expedition; to depart from beagle point in the largest mass jump in history. (About the middle of April, 2018) (That’s the main goal) The idea it to bring new cmdrs as well...
Hi, it seems the first beta builds won't have in-game comms. However, as a premium beta-backer I notice in the alpha 1.1 build, I've been trying, there is a switch for lights. If this refers to some kind of externally visible lighting, might it allow for rudimentary in-game communication between...
