Well, after combing the site (on Olela 3) for a while, besides a scanned message worth 750k, a damaged escape pod and a few random crates (algae, food cartridges etc.) this is what i found concerning the "server banks":

I also found these markings on the case:

In case it's difficult to read, it says "Recovery beacon" below the red glowing light; most likely it's just a black box/flight recorder, attached to the big metal piece, programmed by FD to read "server banks".
This was the scanned message:

I managed to capture the sound (I think).

But for some damn reason I cannot paste the link to it here from my phone. Hold on.

I give up.
 
The story of Captain Jupiter is official Fe:2 lore. Same as the story of Jaques.

All the old lore, including the FFE journals and the Gazetteer, can be found on: http://www.dream-ware.co.uk/

If you read all of the 'Stories Of Life On The Frontier' you see that som of the characters appear in several stories. Captain Jupiter is one of them.
Very cool - I totally missed the 'Stories' !
I will return and endeavor to not pollute any Free Spirit with my non-industrious ambitions :cool:
 
Ok because I cant let the Jewel on the brow of the Mother of Galaxies go....

Reverting to the Holy book of the Dark Wheel Page 23:
Elyssia sniggered. 'What god or goddess do you believe in?' 'Randomius Factoria .. .' Alex muttered. 'Me too .. .'
Later on page 39 Elyssia exclaims:
'Holy Mother of the Stars!'

So assuming she is invoking the goddess she believes in: Randomius Factoria is Holy Mother of the Stars...

Next step - who is Randomius Factoria? The lady fate .. Greek goddess Tyche / Roman Fortuna and also associated with the Wheel of Fortune... (not the game show)

An aspect of Tyche is that she is often adorned with a Mural Crown which symbolized a walled city... maybe an atlantis or eldorado ?

A utopia on the brow of the mother of galaxies ? Who rules in the first recorded idea of a utopia - the utopia of Plato's Republic?... the Guardians.

Okey ...1 question ... what is "Holy book of the Dark Wheel" ? I played Elite in 1991 around ...and still have no idea what is it :D
Good management assumes, new players 9-10 years old can find Raxxla too ...
 
In my last game session I complete a tip-off mission from an anonymous stranger after completing some "Founder or Elite" ranked mission for TDW, now I have an "Rescue Mission - Occupied Escape Pods" from another TDW allied partner 'Future of Arro Naga' that I haven't run missions for in quite a while but is on my tracking spreadsheet as having completed FoE missions previously.

Coincidence?

Does anyone know if the mission stack was re-vamped in the September update to offer more random missions directly to pilots?

Or am I being covertly tested...since I've never had one of these before (one can only hope!)?
 
Ok thanks to this post I now know what Raxxla is and where to find it:


Arx are a virtual currency earned by sitting in frobt of your screen just as Aurline bonus miles are earnt.

LAX is an airport in western America.

So Raxxla (or ARX LAX) are a frequent flyer lounge at LAX. Obviously, it is the Star Alliance lounge there.

I heard it is a nice atmosphere there and they serve free cookies.

Anybody able to confirm?
Used to work on occasions in USA & flown via LAX a few times. Last one was in 2014 when the baggage xray machine broke the zip on my rucksack. Aggressive Rogue AI perhaps?
The only gateway to alien worlds I saw was the departure gate for the Canadian flight...
No Dark Wheel station.
Wasn’t terribly impressed with the business class lounge.

Theres an investigation of TO missions over at the Raxxla Hunter's discord - Dja and many other putting in a lot of effort - fine work. I'm sure you will get an answer there..

It depend on how you define the Randomius part.
If you look at randomness as deterministic and you apply a Newtonian / Einsteinian understanding to the universe, the gods and goddesses of fate are applicable. Particularly the Spindle of Necessity form The Myth Of Er, in Plato's Republic, seem fitting. In that case, Ananke and the Fates are the ruling deities.

If you look at randomness as non deterministic, applying a quantum mechanical understanding, I think we probably have to look in the darker regions of mythology. In Greek tradition, this would be going all the way back to Chaos it self.

As the entire game of ED is based on deterministic randomness, I lean slightly to the first explanation. Raxxla is special though. It cold be different. 🤷‍♂️

I would chase it down personally. Who knows if its specifically the invite you want? but it sure can't hurt your rep with them.

There’s also a TO thread, that I think Macros started.

True i am just seeing alot of the symbology being used is taken from the platonic descriptions ... Also I imagine the idea that from a mathematical seed the universe is created - fits in nicely with someone creating a procedural galaxy. Further, I think we are looking at the neoplatonic tradition which incorperates a wider variety of mystery cults... Much room for chaos... But ya im just playing around looking for a common theme.
