Uhm.... what should I vote? These systems names are all meaningless to me
Closest is wasting the opportunity to make most use of the Taxis
so why not
IC 2391 Sector FL-X b1-7
seems closest+has guardian ruins
In October of 3302, the first set of Guardian Ruins was discovered by CMDR XDeath in the Synuefe XR-H D11-102 system, and inspired thousands of Commanders to head out into the black, searching for more information about the ancient alien race.
Three years later, we’ve discovered Guardian Structures and Beacons, we’ve worked alongside the Engineer, Ram Tah, to create weapons and modules, and we’ve even rediscovered the blueprints for ancient Guardian ships and pieced them together with our own ships to once again take them to the skies.
Today, we’re proud to begin the all-new, first ever Interstellar Initiative... Bridging the Gap. We invite you to make your mark on the Elite Dangerous universe and to help shape its future and its story.
What are Interstellar Initiatives?
Interstellar Initiatives are a series of in-game events and narratives that play out over the course of approximately a month. Each one features several phases that will alter as the story progresses and may end with lasting effects on the galaxy!
Zende Partners Announces Transport Service
Zende Partners has revealed plans to establish a ferry service between the core systems and Guardian space.
Freya Taine, the company’s CEO, made this statement:
“In response to increasing demand for Guardian commodities, my company aims to facilitate access to the area once occupied by the Guardians. This will involve the construction of a megaship to transport pilots to and from this comparatively inaccessible region.”
“Five systems have been highlighted as potential destinations, and we’d like to invite the galactic community to decide which of these should serve as the termination point for the megaship. We will then build an outpost in the chosen system, and the megaship will enter service.”
“We hope that this initiative will stimulate new innovations in the field of Guardian-human technology.”
How do you get involved?
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
It's an ambitious plan. With easier access to Guardian technology, Zende Partners hope to build and develop new technology to benefit the human race... and, perhaps, their economic standings.

To get involved with this first phase of Bridging the Gap, all you need to do is cast your vote above!
You have from now until 6 May 2019 at 11:00 AM (UTC) to vote for your choice of destination. Choose wisely!
Join us aboard the Stargazer!
To assist you in making an informed decision, the flight team of the “Stargazer” will take you on a visit to one of the Guardian Sites and talk about what your options are during the next episode of the livestream series: “Stargazing Tours”. Tune in at 18:00 (UTC) on 2 May on either YouTube, Twitch or Mixer.
Good luck, Commanders.
So, you suggest to keep the outcome of the initiative useless?Keep the megaship as a weekly jump FDev, if a player can't be bothered to fly a measly ~700ly to unlock some Guardian tech then make them give up a week of their gametime at least.
As mentioned a half decent ship can get there in 15-20 minutes atm. If Cmdrs find that too much of a chore then they probably won't be around for long as this is one of the easier grinds in the game.
Name Supercruise distance Blueprint Guardian Ruin as well? Distance from Sol Synuefe PF-E b45-5 8,181 ls Vessel No 782.75 ly Synuefe GT-H b43-1 27,767 ls Module No 777.17 ly Synuefe EN-H d11-96 2,328 ls Vessel No 783.98 ly Synuefe IL-N C23-19 2,037 ls Vessel No 680.75 ly IC 2391 Sector FL-X b1-7 53ls Vessel Yes 618.51 ly
Synuefe EN-H d11-96 is looking best candidate IMHO
It doesn't bother me either that much, but the voting could have been done via the messaging system I would have thought. Maybe they will see how this one starts and if it's succesful they will add to it, hopefully in-game.Blimey, who thought clicking a button, or not, would cause so much angst?
You might argue that people not playing the game at the moment aren't going to find out about it if it's in-game only (I can imagine the complaints), but if folk are checking the forums/YouTube/emails then they will. That said it would be nice to have in-game voting for a variety of reasons.
From a min/max standpoint, this makes sense. From a practical standpoint, there is not any significant difference in any of the suggested systems. All of these systems are just a handful of jumps away from each other, and for most players, less than 15 minutes jumping from the ferry point. I suspect many players will end up travelling further just to get to the ferry, than the distance the ferry is actually going to carry them.Closest is wasting the opportunity to make most use of the Taxi
When this turns into a relog fest (as you know it surely will), you WONT want everyone at the same GR. The ones deeper in Guardian Territory are surrounded by piles of GR and other sites.
well the forum doesn't disappoint yet again.
FDev: Here have free updates for over a year players.
Forums: it's crashed my quantum liquid metal master pc, its witchcraft burn them.
FDev: We have fixed the bugs, and will soon be trying something new.
Forums: it's witchcraft burn them.
FDev: we hope you enjoy our new version of this old thing you were bored with.
Forums: ooo ooo ahhhhhhhhh (throws poo at everything)*
*Translation: It's witchcraft burn them.
why when FDev try something new do all the moaners come out of the woodwork. In my opinion I am glad FDEv have tried something new especially after gnosisgate, but I also agree that it should of been implemented better and in game instead of out of game. but I will not cry salt and whinge about this and that until after its finished. seriously would you moan about a sports team losing before they even started the match?
