Thanks Paige! This puts some more much needed context behind the systems to vote.Hello Commanders,
Zende Partners have identified five locations in Guardian space where they will not only set up an outpost, but fund the creation of a Megaship ferry that will take Commanders from the system of Zende to a location voted for by the community. Take a look at the locations and some of their stats listed below, and then cast your vote here.

If you've already been to one of the systems listed above, please do leave a comment and let other Commanders know why you think they should vote for it!
We simply do not know enough about any of this to actually make an informed decision. To use my example I posted in a different thread...Regardless of the delivery mechanism, I would like to vote but cannot decide or understand what the deciding factor should be for us.
I've seen two possible reasons for casting a vote on this forum: 1. Go for the module, as it's more beneficial. 2. (I think this is what this guy was saying): Go for the central location one and one that won't do us much damage if the Thargoids follow us.
My questions are many regarding what should be my choice in this matter:
1. Do we believe the corporation will accomplish what they say they will? For instance, is it possible that the system that gets selected gets attacked by Thargoids rather than us having a megaship route?
2. Is the decision purely location? I haven't done any of the guardian stuff, but I was planning on it soon. Is this really just a decision about most optimum location?
3. Do the module/vessel things matter most? If it's just a fast jump to a new area, then I see the point of the central location thing, since I could just do the remaining jumps to whichever star system I actually needed at the time.
Basically, I'm just very confused and not sure at all how to proceed or what my criteria should be.
pew pew pew (I just shot your ship) "target shields offline"...I just don't understand why so much of this game happens OUTSIDE of the game. The narrative should be included inside the actual game instead of in lazy forum posts that most people will never see.
This right here is an example of how communication about how things work in the game is somewhat less than stellar. Not picking on you, just using this as an example because megaships jump from point to point. Distance to a location from the entry point does not apply to them, so distance from arrival is meaningless in this situation. They jump into a system where ever they want, not at the typical arrrival point a normal ship would.Purely because it is only 53ls from the main star, I am going to vote for candidate 1.
