The End is in Sight...

It took some work, but I managed to get out of the stellar cul-de-sac that I got stuck in yesterday. Backtracked a few stars and then descended 500LY before I was able to plot 1000LY routes. It was all smooth sailing from there, and I managed to put another three or four thousand light years away. Things are getting less interesting now that I'm further from the core, but I have managed to find several Earth-like and Water worlds to scan. I also make a point of scanning the black, lava-laced planets as they are metal rich. One of them was about four times the size of earth, which should come up well when I submit my findings.

It's still early, but I'm trying not to think about potential earnings. It's not mine until I dock safely into a station, and with the stories I'm reading about an aggressive and deadly AI, I'm slightly worried. My initial plan is that once I'm near the bubble I will stick with zero-population systems, and floor it straight through to my "home" station. No point hanging around and taking in the sights. Anyway, that's not important right now. Have to keep my eyes focused on the road ahead. I'm under 7000LY away now. It's close, but I've already done about 4000LY today. It'll be another two days at the most before I even catch a sniff of civilization, and when I arrive I'll need to be fresh and with my wits about me.

Thinking about it now, this is the longest I've ever been out in the black. I left the last station almost a month ago, and, while this is nowhere near some of the more seasoned Explorers out there, it's still a heck of a lot of time to be away. Things will be different, but it will be nice to see something other than stars, nebula and gas giants again...
