I just started a carrier ops for profitable trade into LTT 5455 to help pushing TDW into expansion state. Delivery profit at Tull Enterprise about 75 million credits. Loading and unloading help would be very much appreciated.
I'm assuming you're selling the items at cost for unloading, since the more profit your haulers make, the better that is for BGS. I'll help unload your carrier if this is the case, especially if you are close to the station.
 
Do I have to be "max" allied with them? Or did I have to be allied with them before I created my Squadron? I'm not pledged to a faction, and I have three pages of factions I can join, but TDW isn't in the list despite recently earning Ally status. Maybe that's the key - maybe it's been too recent and I have to wait for another tick or two...
I am not sure about that, when I pledged the squad to them I was max allied. Probably that is the reason. As I did the very same with my PS4-account recently too, I am pretty sure, that it works shortly after getting allied to them.

a bit of profit for the haulers loading the carrier is calculated too (I do not want to do it alone this time, 19k tons to load/unload), as well a small profit for the carrier, but ofc the vast majority of profit is on the unloading side for BGS-reasons (though we are far in diminishing returns anyway)

Quick check: is your Squadron already assigned to a Powerplay power? If so you won't be able to attach it to a minor faction with a different superpower allegiance.
 
I'll be in-game in another 20 minutes or so, if all goes well. It will then take me a little time to transfer my T9 over. Is this something you are planning multiple runs for? Unloading a FC sounds like fun, and I'd love to give it a try even if not today.
Another Carrier, the "(TDW) Great A'Tuin" is already in Kremainn for loading . So, yes. Not me, in person, but other commanders. I suggest joining the Elite Week Discord, where all this information is much more transparent. We are doing those carrier ops since months. This time I tried to involve even more people by posting it here too, but it's too much hassle to do it every time.

My carrier still has 15.000t to unload, so most likely not empty when you arrive, otherwise look for the "(TDW) Great A'Tuin". I will do no more unloading (because of much higher profit it is much easier to find a helping hand).

I don't do Discord, nor am I looking to join a full-time squadron (been there, done that). I just want to contribute on a casual basis as time and the winds of chance allow. I'll get my T9 in the area and have it on standby for the time time somebody posts a "everyone help me unload my carrier" message here in this thread, assuming I don't need my T9 for the next CG.

no worries, still 12.000t on MFC Salome, so you are welcome to unload.

That was it! I was aligned with the Federation, and apparently The Dark Wheel is Independent.

I like to align my personal squadron to the faction I'm supporting because the faction-tracking tools are very nice IMO. I wish I could align to a faction personally, without having to dedicate my squadron to this, but like all things Elite, I work with what I got.

Regarding TDW, I'm kinda surprised it has so few systems at this time. Is this just because BGS expansion is slow, or is this movement (Turning The Wheel) not as big as I assumed?
 
Is this just because BGS expansion is slow
Broadly, yes - the absolute fastest it can go is about one system every two weeks, and the project is going at about one system every three weeks since it started at the end of May (because it's much more efficient to take a bit longer and get the targeting right, than to just expand as fast as possible in no particular direction)

OK so here is last nights show que'd up to the "TDW UPDATE" although I think you will find some interesting things in the show if you give the rest a try. I recomend using the time stamps to jump to "PREVIOUSLY ON" to catch the full show while leaving behind the fluff if interested. In particular we uncover an interesting new possibility to do with the Thargoid probes and some new things Frontier may have just snuck into the game last week on the QT... ;)
