Alliance Operations in the California Nebula
All quiet on the rimward front.
Once Turner Research Group were governing Darwin. I returned to the bubble with my half billion paycheck and sorted out my Fleet. In addition to the relatively new Anaconda "Turner's Call" and stopping in at Alioth to buy an Asp (I had to sell the Green Dream to buy the 'Conda); I bought a T-9 (the Suzy Thunda)...

Embedded in the audio - sounds like a fax or old fasioned modem. Slow it down and run it hrough a spectrum analyser.

ISS Science for Everyone
Growth and Survival of Coloured Fungi in Space-A (CFS-A) determines the effect of microgravity and cosmic radiation on the growth and survival of coloured fungi species. Science Results for Everyone This experiment showed that fungi can grow inside the space station and could decompose food and other organic materials in humid conditions. After exposure to air growth stopped,...
Astronauts and their hair
So Frontier, in their wisdom, have decided that long hair is too hard.
And a chorus of agreement has risen from the cheap seats:
"Long hair wouldn't work in space."
"It would get caught in your helmet."
Unfortunately every space agency that actually puts people into space seems to have missed the memo.
Even NASA - who have a protocol for everything,...
The Jasmina Halsey saga.
Community Goal: The Search for Starship One
28 JAN 3302
In May 3301, the personal vessel of the Federal president, Starship One, disappeared en route to the Azaleach system. An investigation was promptly launched, but the fate of the vessel and her crew, which included then-president Jasmina Halsey, could not be conclusively determined. In a statement released earlier today, Federal President...
Some Rebuys sting more than others.
I knew it was trouble.
I should have left when I heard the scan.
I was tired. I hadn't got the right equipment.
It's been interesting heading out halfway to the Heart and Soul Nebula.
Figured a way to optimise my route through NGC 7822 so I'm just grabbing black holes and other ripe low hanging fruit. You can make eddb.io list all the compact stars in a region and then sort...
Lifeforms at the Alliance Research Base near California Nebula.
I got my Asp The Green Dream kitted up with a 45 LY jump range and headed out to the California Nebula.
Totally worth the trip.
I got as far as the Mahon Research Base at HIP 18077 6 C
drove due East - out past the long range comms tower.
there is a field of fungus like growths:
Just keep reading the scanner and you'll find at least four types of Life forms:

The Vehicles of the Milkyway Galaxy, Part 1: The Lakon Diamondback Explorer
The Diamondback Explorer or DBX for short.
Ever wondered why is the DBX basically a signature ship of the AEDC?
Well, the standard description you find in the shipyards of the galaxy paint a mediocre picture:
"The Diamondback Explorer was Lakon Spaceways' response to criticism of the original Diamondback ship class. By extending the ship's frame it allowed greater cargo capacity
--Stardate 3303.01.10--//Hunting in LHS 2637, progress with A.I. and a new starship!//
After a search around for an RES in systems controlled by Alioth Independents comes up empty, I resign to finding a heavy traffic area in LHS 2637. This proves to be extremely lucrative. Bounty after bounty fall by my lasers with help from local law enforcement. I quickly have a sizable stack of papers to turn in upon my return.
I decide it is almost time to return to base and show Alioth Independents...
