[Distant Worlds Expedition]The Explorer's Legacy (A suggestion about Lavian Brandy)

Oh yes! I was looking for this thread but couldn't remember its title.

Anyway, which of the legacies are still "alive an kicking"? And is it OK to take them on "one person expeditions / journeys" or does it need to be something "official"?
 
With great pride and pleasure i can confirm, i am bearer of Hope now. Will take it whereever the voidwinds take us.

However, i dunno who reported giving Community to me. I do not have it nor have i ever had it.
Unless of course there is an actual CMDR Graytest out there, which i kinda doubt. Whereever it is, i Hope it's alive and kicking in someone's cargohold! (pun intended ;-) )

Cheers,
Grey

As far as I know, other than Wanderlust and Encouragement, they're all active. And it doesn't matter what you take them on - every light year they travel becomes part of their history - just so long as you don't bring them back to a system with a station.

Though now I'm really curious where Community is... ;)

Subject: Report on first and second recovery attempts for Wanderlust

The first report about the loss of CMDR Miepit's ship "Tom the keelback" carrying the Wanderlust legacy were received in early January 3303. A first impromptu survey of the crash site using just the equipment on a typical explorer ship was done in February 3303 following the conclusion of the Galactic Nebula and Colonia Core Circuit expedtions but found no remains of pilot, escape pod, ship, or Wanderlust.


The lack of remains of the pilot or the escape pod does not come as a surprise because records available from the Pilot's Federation indicate that CMDR Miepit has been active as of January 3305. In other words, CMDR Miepit was able to activate his escape system in time.


A second survey utilizing more advanced equipment released by the Pilot's Federation in the years since the crash was carried out during the Distant Worlds 3305 expedition. Additional documentary photographs were taken after the expedition's conclusion. Despite the additional search equipment, no remains of ship or cargo could be identified.

The most likely explanation is that the ship bounced off the underlying rock before undergoing rapid unplanned disassembly while being several meters above the surface. In such a scenario, the distance between the disintegrating ship and the surface can prevent the formation of a crater, while the energy relased by the event is large enough to pulverize the ship and its cargo.

A similar incident happened during the Distant Worlds 3302 expedition and formed the basis of the well-known "safe landing" video meme.


There are no notable changes in appearance between the pictures from February 3303 and those from May 3305. This was to be expected if the ship was destroyed several meters above the surface. There might still be miniscule chemical traces, but identifying them require a comparison between the make-up of the underlying rocks seen today with samples taken before the crash. As no such samples exist, the loss of the Wanderlust legacy must be considered confirmed.


PS: One of my friends started working for Aegis recently, but forgot to pass me his new galweb code. As getting directory assistance out here looks to be an enigma, and I am about to have a cow, can you pass the following to Aegis' mission department, please? Thanks in advance

I will resolve the above in a year and a day if nobody else manages it
 
As far as I know, other than Wanderlust and Encouragement, they're all active.
Whatever happened to Encouragement, and where? I've just visited the Wanderlust crash site for the second time, might as well pay my respects to the Encouragement site also (and take less than 2.5 years to post something about it).

Encouragement was being carried by CMDR May. She attempted to transfer it in space to another ship and it was lost to a game bug.

From May:
"as far as mine goes, ... i'm thinking we may just want to let it be, it does give some additional lore to the project and the way the ancient urn suddenly started flying away on its own, while glitchy, could be some mysterious in-universe factor"

Yes, space transfers are dangerous. In addition to the loss of Encouragement, I dimly remember another thread where another space transfer went wrong, but the legacy was restored by support. I had my own brown pants moment when I initially took over Camaraderie in orbit over The Mighty, but I was flying a cutter at the time and was able to boost after it. Ever since then, I do my handovers on planets, especially the frequent back-and-forth between main and alt that were needed during DW2.
 
In my mind, Cameraderie is basically a small shipping container of brandy - 75 cases, each with 12 bottles of brandy - and with each handoff, one case is kept by the Commander handing it off. It creates a thread linking all of us who carried that legacy, and in my mind the thread perfectly fits with the spirit of Cameraderie.

I raise a glass to you, and to everyone out here in the black.
