Good, so it's not a hallucination. Unless it's a collective one. :)
I don't think it's Morse either. But it looks somewhat familiar.
Can only confirm that it's in the orange background, it doesn't rotate with the ship.
Ya reminds me of the dots and dashes we see floating around planets. Like Jorki said - might be good to get snapshots from different commanders and with different ship backgrounds to see if the message changes.

On my side it looks very similar to your screenshot. In some of those line-dot thingies I see something like a telecypher but I'm not sure.

LE: Also, some markings appear the same while loading the game on-foot/SRV/ship (Mamba)

I was looking in the galmap and couldn't help but notice the constellation for Corona Borealis constellation isn't shown with the rest on the map.

Never really looked myself, tried it once on day one but was unimpressed by how it all looked, as I noticed it doesn’t show everything either. So much like everything in ED put it down as either a bug or just poorly implemented.

How many of the constellations are shown in Gal map? I’m suspecting from memory it’s only the 12 astrological ones? But that’s just my vague recollection. From memory there ought to be 88 in total, not including any historical ones which were mothballed due to fashion.

Again a good identification of a potential key identifier, hidden in plain sight - what is in gal map, and what isn’t, what are the correlating factors, is it arbitrary, are they astronomical, astrological, or something else.

You're probably right. I was focusing here still because of Alphekka being 'the Jewel' and all. It's pretty easy for something like this to dress itself as a clue or evidence of something if I'd like it to be
 
But still it’s a valid idea, it could be this obvious, with those with eyes to see?

Puzzles within ED have only become absurd over following years due to the player base responding to FD puzzles with dismay, at how easy they used to be. Raxxla technically pre-dates much of these, and surprisingly doesn’t enter much of the communities consciousness, as it’s probably seen as impossible or just not in game. So there is nothing to say the solution isn’t starring us in the face.

Dose not mean that there isn’t a very obvious clue in game, which everyone simply walks around.

Complacency is a hallmark of human behaviour. I would never disown any idea out of hand, as our own bias is likely to be our Achilles heel, in being able to observe Raxxla.

*edited:

Again many site MB - there will be no clues; so they don’t scrutinise, but it’s equally applicable MB said that just in context to the interview at that time; or it’s an admission it’s all ‘narrative’ driven?

In that respect one can’t really apply it to the game, not without accepting our interpretations are biased.

Your idea is as valid as any, we just need to compare / contrast.

So, perhaps 'eyes to see' this constellation myself without galmap help 🤷‍♂️.


On a related note. Could someone tell me how I would use the FSS to listen to background noise in the skybox? How can you tell if you're hearing something worth investigating and then how would you go about figuring out where it originated?
 
Google hiccup or another not-so-subtle prison reference? The image is of another MB who is a professor of criminology working in counselling and the like in the prison system.
Yes - my point was, it’s clearly an example of how you can’t trust open source information, completely, there is far too much of it, it’s open to interpretation, most of it is hogwash and the rest may be poorly signposted or filed.
