Formidine Excursion: P0

Aside from a quick jaunt to Guardian space, I really haven't had a good chance to take the Eostre out on any actual exploration missions. Now that there's a lull in operations and no major expeditions are on the horizon, I'm taking the time to head out to the Formidine Rift to do a little light surveying. I pulled into Newholm Station in Sothis about twelve hours ago; the station hasn't changed much since I ran courier missions between here and Ceos last year. Air's a bit more dry than I remember. Allergies, maybe. That's something folks seem to forget-- every time we pop into one of these islands in space, we're breathing new air. Treated air, obviously, but each station has its own character. The insulting ozone crackle of industrial stations versus the slight scent of jasmine carried on that perfect 44.86% humidity inside Aachen Town. Newholm is fresh but with a hint of mustiness. Busy, but clean.



From Distant Worlds I found that a comfortable ship with a respectable range is far more useful than a paper-thin jump-boat. So before I commit myself to either the Beluga or the Cutter as my extra large exploration vessel, I should at least have a baseline by which I can begin to make comparisons. The Formidine Rift is the best place to test this out. I'll flesh out a draft of my fleet requirements while I'm on this trip as well.

I don't think I've got an extensive list of waypoints to check out, just the Heart and Soul nebulae, then it's into the EAFOTS sector.
