I feel the same. Could it be they need Ferry there, because they plan something else in that region? Maybe Thargoid invasion? Which is kind of puzzling why they didn't do it until now, seeing as this sites are the source of weapons and modules against them, right?I can get the Ferry thing if the site as far out 10,000ly away etc. I have been to some half way to Colonia. if the Ferry went there then it wall makes sense.
personally I wont be waiting for a week to use the ferry to travel only 700ly.... I will just fly there without utilising the ferry.
of course, people using it is there choice, their call. it just seems a bit of a waist putting in game for something so close
