Mission: Fly to HIP 28711
Objective: Make first discovery of the system’s blue-white star.
Distance: 293.63 ly
Narrative: Trip “officially” started at Chadwick Dock in the Gladutjin system, where I upgraded from a Sidewinder Mk III to an Adder outfitted with a default equipment loadout. I traveled out from “civilized” space, utilizing scoops to gain fuel (at the risk of several close calls) when necessary.
Result: My journey started on 3/4/2015 and I didn’t reach HIP 28711 until 3/6/2015. 293.63 light years later, I reached the system’s brightest star but someone had already beat me to the claim. The trip wasn’t a total loss, as the system map indicated the presence of a black hole. My discover scanner, however, wasn’t strong to pick up the location so I could not see the astronomical object for myself.
