The 8th moon thing - whats the source for that - is it official lore?
It's in the Dark Wheel entry in the Codex - 8th moon of a gas giant. However, the Codex notes that this is a theory by one "expert", rather than a definite fact.The 8th moon thing - whats the source for that - is it official lore?
I don’t like saying this.It is official info in the game - check The Dark Wheel artictle in Codex. Disused starport (operated minimal power output) orbiting eighth moon of an unnamed gas giant. So I trust it as clue.
She had some knowledge about the Dark Wheel. The question is if it was knowledge from her later underworld life or she got this knowledge from Loren lineage.Lady Kahina’s Imperial Courier, the ‘Seven Veils’, still at the Capitol spaceport, was impounded and examined. It was found to be completely stripped of all valuable equipment, with the modifications made at Avalon shipyards discovered to be carefully crafted fakes.
Lady Kahina’s Imperial tiara was found in the cockpit, along with a small medallion bearing an ancient symbol on one side and the word ‘Salomé’ on the other.
The symbol is believed to belong to an organisation some refer to as ‘The Dark Wheel’.
I think you might be confusing it with Raxxla - there is nothing that the Dark Wheel discovered, they simply set up their HQ in an old station, we are told. So the station was apparently already there, which is one reason it might be assumed to be near the original bubble.Re the assumption that it has to be near to the bubble.
Can I just put forward the idea that the original discovery might have been the result of a mis-jump?
That would give a much larger possible range for it to be in. (Elite v-1 it is argued split the current galaxy into 8 sectors, rather than had 8 galaxies, but I don't know if there is any canon reason to support that in the mo9dern game as some is taken and some discarded from previous incarnations at will).
IIRC That story was DW’s and he stated that he doesn’t have any info and he’s not involved with TDW and Raxxla story. Also the story has some easter eggs regarding The Children of Raxxla, a player group.I forgot post reference to that link of Salomé and the Dark Wheel. It was GalNet on July 21, 3301: https://elite-dangerous.fandom.com/wiki/GalNet/3301/July.

“8th moon of a gas giant” and “codex image” are very strong clues imo, there are not many systems fulfill those criterias. The question in my mind is, is it discoverable via regular ways?I think the issue is we only have the codex entry and screenshot to go on, as far as indisputably canonical hints go. Whilst this is sparse, it allows strict deductive reasoning.
Without sticking to these we end up with the situation seen on the Raxxla thread - with no offence to the thread participants intended - where there is endless futile speculation along increasingly tenuous lines, and elaborations of the same myths over and over ("the devs said somebody scanned the system but nobody found it", etc.). The end result is nobody finds anything.
Hopefully I can put a list of candidates for people to look at and give feedback on up here soon, once I have some confidence it won't be a waste of everybody's time.
