there's any group/squadron/faction truly exploration oriented ?

I'm totally exploration committed, and usually spend my time in deep void quite far from the bubble . I play solo or in mobius pve servers, but basically i know nobody and started to wonder if there are groups/squadrons around that does the same. Mainly to help each other if stuck in deep space ( fuel or repair issue ) or just for general chat.

I don't want to join any random squadron, but if there's one exploration oriented, i might be interested to join.
 
The Alliance Rapid-Reaction Corps have a Deep Space Support vessel. So far we haven't done much with it but we are looking to send it out on a Star Trek style long term exploration mission.

Greetings Commander,

The Nova Navy, which is the naval arm of the Frontier-created Nova Imperium faction, has a special research and exploration institute, aimed to conduct independant-from-Aegis observations, as well as to provide the Empire with an alternative to the Aegis organization.

If you would like to hear more, do reply to this thread, or shoot me a private message.

Sincerely yours,
 
I gave a look at both your squadrons, and with all the respect to both of you, none are exploration focused... more bubble politic/fight oriented.
This means that with your relatively small size (31 and 43 members) makes evident that hardly you have more than a couple of people really exploration mommitted ( if any ).
An explorer want a good number of similar people swarming everywhere in order to help each other in case of need or join an exploration mission to map a big chunk of uncharted space. if its just 2 people, hardly they will be close enough to be of any help. I still would be on my own ...
 
You may not be wrong to be honest, but the truth is that looking at the common discord chat is not an indication of how many explorers we have. Sadly though, most explorers are not group oriented and really don't function well when not alone.
At the last count. Excluding my own exploring commander "Themadoll" who is the Deep Space carrier owner. I count that we have at least six active explorers currently out in the black as I type. We typically hear from them around twice a year when they return with data and require escorting back to the bubble.
My hope is that we can use the carrier to provide long distance support to those explorers but as it stands it may end up being simply a mobile base for Themadoll as he meanders around the galaxy alone.

Anyway what I'm trying to say is you may find a truly exploration focused group, and I sincerely hope that you do.
I'm not sure that it willl be an easy task though so good luck to you.

On the other hand we can, and will provide you with the carrier support you need for long distance rescue, repair, refuel and supply, and a discord server where you can chat and seek help and advice till the cows come home. Oh and if you really don't want to return to the core the carrier is fitted with the cartographic module.

Hello there CMDR!

If you are looking for a dedicated exploration squadron, look no further than the Intergalactic Astronomical Union.

We placed 5th in last season's squadron leaderboards for exploration, contribute heavily to community code projects, and have one of the largest public codex databases.

Our squadron has several fleet carriers attached to the DSSA, and we've always got a few deep space survey missions for members to contribute to.

Check out our website at elite-igau.github.io

Our Brother Theocracy The Order of Enblackenment conduct a lot of exploration (plus other stuff). If you don't know how to contact them, I can put you in touch.
 
I'm with the Order of Enblackenment, we support our explorers as much as the other choices of career. Having been founded by pilots returning from the first Distant Worlds expedition and providing support and staff for the second one, we know what it's like to traverse the Void in search of knowledge. My personal support tends to be credits for purchasing and upgrading ships, but the recent mining bonanza has dulled the need for sharing wing missions with newer pilots.

If you need a friendly voice once in a while or an escort/rescue, we have the resources and people to help. Our pilots are scattered through many time zones, so there's almost always someone around the Discord. We're up to 6 Fleet Carriers with a few more getting close, several part-time fuel rat/hull seal members, and we have a wide range of ages and experience levels. Feel free to drop by and say hello some time.

 
In a helpful tone of voice (not sarcasm)... ...

If no one seems to have a squadron thats right for your needs ..

Why not start your own?

Sounds like you have quite a specific set of requirements that will not be met in the big generic squadrons.

Start one yourself, advertise exactly what you do, and how you envisage it, and you will get applicants with a similar intetest, I am sure of that.

This also gives you the chance to select an appropiate name and tags... If you do put them on your ship, you want something good for the photos.

Regards.

I was thinking of it as last resource, but you know ... before creating another "1 person squad" ( its ridiculous how many there are ) I wanted to look if there's already something like that. After all, the best result would be have as many explorers in one place. Actually the replies from "Factabulous" and "CMDR Urania Minora" are quite useful, will look at them.
 
Personally, I like exploring a lot, and intend to do more of it soon.

We could do with someone running our exploration department. Interested? Give me a PM.
 
Have a look at the squadron leaderboards for exploration. Some of the top 20 have exploration-focused names and are therefore likely to be mainly explorers. (Others are more general purpose factions that happen to have lots of explorers in them)
