Jaques – 18th Oct 3302 (Day 21)

JAQUES OR BUST!

Again. Thankfully, the local interface to my seemingly remotely piloted ship has been a lot more stable today, so I wasn’t needing to reconnect every second jump like I was at points yesterday.

On the way I passed a beautiful L-class brown dwarf20161018230619_1

This was followed by one of the first peeks at the Colonia Nebula:

Space is confusing though, as the stars just suddenly… stop.

As I slowly continued, I could see the Colonia Nebula getting bigger in my field of vision as I drew closer and closer to it.

Alas, I finally made it to one jump to go, and decided to call it a night.

Wait, who am I kidding, it’s ONE JUMP TO GO!

So I arrived in the system, found Jaques, and proceeded to approach the station, I managed to get docking permission, and just about set down on the pad.

And then….

At least I’ve arrived.

After reconnecting back up to my ship, I repaired my ship, restocked it, sold my cargo and exploration data.

Eleven tons of Hutton Mugs have travelled over twenty-two thousand light years to be here, and all they get is 16,759/ton? That’s still over 180k credits profit though, given they’re cheap as chips at Hutton Orbital.

I sold 1,596 bits of exploration data, worth a total of 12,337,830 credits, split over 33 pages, averaging to around 7,730 credits per bit of data.

And so, an update on my financials:

Balance533,797
Exploration data12,337,83012,871,627
First discovery bonuses328,40713,200,034

In addition, I ranked up to Pathfinder!

There’s a large part of me that doesn’t want to do any more exploration now, as I have Curiosity and Opportunity as my ships, and Pathfinder as my exploration rank…

That’s all for now, I’ll probably summarize everything tomorrow in a new post, but I FINALLY MADE IT!
