The Elite: Dangerous newsletter is out: “The Outpost #79”!

A few words about the tragic loss of Chester Bennington, just as I talked about Robin Williams almost three years ago. Linkin Park rocked my childhood, the lyrics touched me and their musical power gave me a little more self-confidence at certain moments of my life during my teenage years. In the shower, in the car, while sleeping or painting figurines, even singing their words, LP has been with me during a very long time, like some other bands, but it had a special place in my heart. Linkin Park’s members have always fought to encourage communication through music, helping people in distress and they were very committed to the environment. It’s often the people who give the most and try to make people laugh who need it the most – it’s like trying to fill a black hole; It never fills. Communication is a very important thing, you are never all alone even if you think so. Talk about it, if something is wrong, discuss with your friends, your family; If you do not have any, I’d be happy to discuss with you on Discord. Stay safe, Love you.

Palin’s Mission

While Ram Tah has obtained thousands of data from the pilots – in order to study the 101 pieces of information from the Ancient Guardian Sites – another Thargoids expert, Professor Palin, seeks help from the galactic community to further investigate the Thargoids Unknown Structures.

Palin wants us to visit the Unknown Structures in order to recover some Thargoids canisters, such as the Unknown Resin. Bring them to the professor in order to earn your reward and to help him better understand the Thargoids technologies. To do so, check out our Thargoids Bases guide, get in and collect the valuable items on the floor. Certain Unknown Structures also have these items outside from the main site, scattered around the peaks.

  • [Exploration] We won’t just be looking at stellar body discovery. To be clear, the reasons I would like to replace the honk and eyeball scanning would not be to drag out exploration time, but to give the game play:

* A modicum of player-skill, along with a suitable minor skill-based reward
* A feeling of verisimilitude, that you’re operating advanced sensor equipment like a boss
* Satisfying processes, improved visual/audio/interactions
* A reduction required super cruise travel, so you only need to travel to a planet if you’re definitely interested in investigating it

Also worth noting, this is a separate point to the concept of having things to discover during exploration- SourceSandro Sammarco, Lead Designer

◘ 20 juillet – The recent revelation that the Thargoids have returned to human space has sent shockwaves through the galaxy. Some, such as Federal President Zachary Hudson, have reacted defensively, promising to protect humanity from what they believe is an aggressive alien race. More moderate voices have underscored the need for further information, since so little is known about the Thargoids. One such voice belongs to Abroin Universal Plc, which has announced plans to establish a research outpost in the Pleiades Nebula – one of the centres of Thargoid activity.

A spokesperson for the organisation said:

“The Thargoids are active principally in the Pleiades Nebula, so we are eager to establish a research outpost there. As Edmund Mahon said, there is potentially a great deal we could learn from them. Hopefully this new outpost will let us do just that.”
