[INDEPENDENT] Peaceful Explorers and Scientists - The Intergalactic Astronomical Union [IGAU] is recruiting

Greetings CMDR's!

The Intergalactic Astronomical Union [IGAU] is seeking like-minded CMDR's interested in PEACEFUL scientific and exploration efforts throughout the galaxy.
We are a PC only squadron in Mobius PVE PG (America and Factions) which collects, stores, and studies astronomical data.

The Intergalactic Astronomical Union [IGAU] seeks to collect, store, and study astronomical data.

Squadron Goals:

  • Connect like-minded squadrons together.
  • Help unify data collection efforts (EDMC Plugin).
  • No aggression towards other CMDR's.
  • Offer science expertise and exploration assistance freely, and openly.
  • Peacefully explore the galaxy, and pursue scientific research.
  • Share data openly and appropriately.
Squadron Rules:

  • We play in solo, Squadron PG, or Mobius PVE PG (Americas or Factions Server).
  • We support "open" science.
  • We will NOT engage in hostile acts against other CMDR's, and will use the least amount of force necessary to defend from attack.
  • We will share notable discoveries freely, and post them for peer-review in bulletin format.
  • We are officially "neutral" with respect to the Federation, Empire, and Alliance superpowers.
  • We provide a safe space - harassment of any kind, and/or disrespect will not be tolerated.
  • We do not chase myths, or engage in wild speculation.
  • We observe, study, and record.
  • We do not require members to be actual scientists. A passion for science and exploration is very helpful though!
If you are passionate about exploration, and scientific discovery, come check us out or send an in-game message/friend request to Urania Minora or Dr. Arroway.
Very relaxed/casual structure. Like any research group our members are free to pursue their own goals, so long as there's no conflict with squadron rules.

After receiving a few questions, I want to clarify:

There is absolutely NO requirement to be a RL scientist in order to join IGAU.

We are looking for peaceful and respectful explorers who are interested in the mysteries the galaxy has to offer.
Even though Fleet Carriers have been delayed, we're still looking for a few more explorers to join the Intergalactic Astronomical Union.

While the Fleet Carrier delay is unfortunate, there is still plenty to do, and an entire galaxy to explorer.

For those who enjoy a bit of BGS action - we have partnerships with over a dozen squadrons - plenty of systems and stations to engage in.

Explorers new and old, all welcome in IGAU.
We are planning some expedition efforts and surveys for the next few months.
If you are interested in participating, and/or joining the squadron, stop by our Discord.

Also, if you are more of a trade/bgs focused player, give us a holler. IGAU is primarily an exploration focused squadron,
however we could use a few folks in our home system to "hold down the fort" while we're out on expeditions!

Hello IGAU, I've tried to get in touch in-game a couple of times, but I'm not sure my messages have gotten through. Short version: newb, but love your mission, want to help/join. CMDR BrickSteelhead in-game. Should I try the Discord, or is there another, better way to be in touch with the Squadron leadership?
There's very few "hard" rules for IGAU, however we take a strong anti-PVP stance.
We will defend when necessary, but never will initiate an attack.

That being said, you are more than welcome to join our discord as a guest, and help with exploration efforts.
We can also put you in touch with a few of the squadrons we are in coalition with.

Discord server link is in my signature block.

Hi IGAU, I am playing PVP / Open, but would really love to get involoved with a group like yours. Could you offer any suggestions?
