The mystery of Raxxla has finally been solved. Cmdr Parallax Floor XI discovered Raxxla, and reveals the secret. The Anaconda at Hutton Orbital has temporarily sold out. And players digging through the game files have discovered what happened to the Panther Clipper.
Excellent, and not at all an April fool. The key sequence is correct, I've been to Raxxla and back, in my free Anaconda - and came back in a Panther Clipper with the Anaconda in one of its eight fighter bays. It seems that the Panther Clipper is only available to those with an LEP, so some may be disappointed.
