Flight of the Nowhere - A DSSA Carrier Deployment Operation to Aquila's Halo

Hello Commanders,

This is a thread for preparation to deploy a carrier as part of the Deep Space Support Array to the Aquila's Halo region. Our carrier, the Nowhere, will be travelling from the Bubble to Colonia and then out to the western rim to round out the array's coverage in this region of space, supplementing DSSA #21 Chrysaetos Refuge. It's a bit of a long journey of about 49000 lightyears. No short jaunt, but we're up to it and would be thrilled to have your help and your company.

This expedition is ideal for pilots looking to:
  • Visit the galactic edge
  • Help with a grand community effort to sow the stars with places to meet, rest, and repair
  • Visit Colonia
  • Start a circumnavigation of the galaxy
  • Explore one of the least-travelled regions of the Milky Way
No obligation to contribute fuel or other resources is implied. Come along, we'd be glad to have you.

Carrier Information

Carrier Name: DSSA Nowhere
ID: K0H-1KK (DSSA #131)
Current location: Scheau Prou OI-Z D1-1 A 5
Destination: Scheau Prou OI-Z D1-1 A 5

The first stage of the journey consists quite simply of a trip to Colonia. Commanders are also welcome to hitch a ride to this point and no further if they wish.
From there, the area of space we will traverse is not rich in known Tritium hotspot overlaps or well-travelled generally.

When not fueling, the carrier can be expected to make jumps at a pace of about 8 per night. Jumps will usually not take place during the period of 1000 hours to 2300 hours server time, so sorties should be kept within that time while underway. This should allow the carrier to arrive in Colonia in approximately ten days.

While enroute to both Colonia and to Aquila's Halo, an encouraged activity is prospecting for overlapping tritium hotspots. Finding any in the regions of the galaxy we're crossing, particularly the Outer Arm and Perseus Arm, will assist other carriers seeking to travel without stopping in civilized space.

Carrier Equipment

Nowhere is equipped with the following Modules:
  • Universal Cartographics
  • Repair Crews
  • Armoury
  • Outfitting
  • Shipyard
Limited mining equipment and cargo racks are stocked by the Nowhere.
No tariffs are in place for any services on the Nowhere.
No return journey is scheduled for participants and this expedition does not have any additional support carriers.


All dates are subject to change by suggestion or circumstance and stage durations are approximate.

Now: Arrived. Carrier on station at Scheau Prou SO-X D2-1.
August 3: Departure will be on this day at 2200 hours server time.
August 10: Arrival in Colonia, start of second fueling period.
August 23 - Departure for Yepoi IW-E D11-2 (tentative destination).
August 30 - Arrival at Scheau Prou OI-Z D1-1 A 5.


A Discord server is set up for our expedition here. I am also present in the Fleetcomm Discord. Please come and chat or post here if you're interested.


07/30: Tritium supply in Panoi system is available at favourable prices and is enough, it just needs to be loaded from stations in system to the carrier. Departure should be guaranteed to be on time or accelerated.
08/01: Fuel loading complete at Panoi. Deployment schedule accelerated to August 3rd. Travel time may also decrease.
08/03: Departure time is set at 2200 server time. Underway.
08/10: Arrived at Eol Prou DF-U b18-26. Second fuel stage begins.
08/23: Departure from Colonia.
08/27: Removed planning text as no longer relevant.
08/30: Arrival at Aquila's Halo, refined final station at Scheau Prou SO-X D2-1.

Aquila's Halo is a sparse place, and there's little to see, but here's a thing or two to look for while here, and include a few good opportunities to fill your codex. This list will expand if I hear about anything neat.
The carrier's stationed over a terraformable water world.
Places worth visiting nearby:
Scheau Prou GN-Q D6-0 (403Ly): An ELW is body 4 in this system. It has a Mars-analogue partner nearby.
Xothae MA-A D2 (4916Ly): DSSA #21 is here. Pay them a visit!
Yepoi GD-K D8-1 (864Ly): One of the region's few non-sequence stars is here, a neutron star.

Welcome to the DSSA, IncoherentOrange!

Looks like a well thought-through itinerary. Here's to hoping FDev sorts out the Tritium issues on the 3rd. That'll give you a solid week to get things squared away.
