Some members of the galactic community associated with the Distant Worlds 2 expedition that runs at the end of the year have announced a jaunt that will take place between now and then. Officially called: The Autumn Odyssey, it is being sponsored and run by The Deep Space Network and The Paradox Wing and will be the inaugural collaboration between these two infamous groups. The expedition will run from the 9th of September until November 25th and will seek to recreate the spirit of the ancient mythical explorer Odysseus, who faced a multitude of dangers and challenges to his … Continue reading Prelude To Distant Worlds: Autumn Odyssey.
We hear a lot of things waiting around in the black. Sunning ourselves on the shores of a red-giant, waiting for the fuel scoop to do it’s duty and skimming through the latest comm-link messages, we normally come across the inane ramblings of space-madness addled pilots grabbing at any chance to see ghosts in the void. But every now and again we come across something that has a chance. CMDR Bakertia1 smells something fishy in the Betelgeuse system. Space-molluscs could be amassing on it’s borders, waiting patiently under the noses of the bubble, taking advantage of the high-value worlds of … Continue reading Thargoid Base At Betelgeuse?
Believe it or not, dear reader, The Fuel Scoop does not bring in the kinds of fame and riches it deserves. I know, it’s hard to believe, but every now and again the staff here at the intragalactic offices need to take missions from time to time.

Go into any hive of scum and villainy in the galaxy and you’ll always find them. Small groups of crusty old spacers, normally chewing or smoking some illicit substance, ink stains all over their fingers and never without some tattered notebook or scraps of paper, hastily scrawled with star-charts or riddles, long pored over and annotated with myriad spiderlike notes. These are the Raxxla hunters. They have been scouring the galaxy since anyone can remember for the myth that is Raxxla – supposedly a gateway to whatever your heart desires: treasure, knowledge, maybe even another galaxy. We here at The … Continue reading Has The Quest To Find Raxxla Petered Out?
Seasoned explorer KennyESQUE recently returned from self imposed isolation as part of a one-man mission to map as many intriguing and unusually large stars as possible, a mission dubbed “The Galactic Hypergiant Survey”. The Fuel Scoop only found out about this admirable mission when he docked his Federal Corvette Requiem at Dove Enigma in Colonia. Our sources inside Universal Cartographics, told us that the general sense is that the scientific community at Colonia were awaiting KennyESQUE’s arrival with bated breath. Science officer aboard Dove Enigma, Takahiro Nakamura told us more: “It’s just very exciting. We knew about his mission to … Continue reading The Galactic Hypergiant Survey – An Epic Story Of Galactic Exploration.
