Maybe a bit off topic; but i truly regret FD is such a bad story teller. Here there is an entire galaxy to play with, a sandbox granted, and all they fill it with is the vacuum of space and some stories typed out, without any real significance; at least i don't feel they have. Please give me some mystery and some bread crumbs to follow; leads that lead to new mysteries, but in the end to a solution; then start something new.Since I was in the area, I did something I normally don't : check the place out. Got the permit, so why not.
But unsurprisingly.... nothing in Vega. As expected, business as usual in the System. (since local news aren't a thing anymore, not even a single line to read at the mentioned Station lol)
So even if it's supposed to be a lead of some sort or form, that just doesn't work.
For the time being, I file all that under the same label as i.e. Utopian sims "Pilots from all over the Galaxy can buy in Antal" (quote GALnet).
Fluff. Fake news. There's just nothing there. Wasn't in 3301 and there isn't anything in 3305.
Probably the reason GALnet has become entirely burnt up and 100% unusable to transport any Story anymore. It's long lost all credibility it once might have had.
So for as long as there isn't a clearly visible line between "background fluff - read but don't/can't get involved" and "Fools! It's a hint, check it out any maybe you find something!"... not taking any chances. Doesn't matter what it is.
(basically applying the old rule : "Screenshot/Video - or it didn't happen". Works surprisingly well when applied to GALnet and saves alot of trouble )
