Triadius plotted a new route to the famuous Beagle Point located at 65.253 ly from our home system. After leaving on Friday 19 Feb 3302 about 12 o’clock, I arrived at Beagle Point on Friday 26 Feb around 14 o’clock.
The exploration went as good as it could. My Anacond “Starbuck Angel” only suffered minor hull damage (98%) due to one or two drops, and minor Power Plant damage (97%) due to three or four overheatings.
I did loose all my heatsinks due to typing other stuff while still being on the ships console without realising it, and by hitting the heat sink button several times. This is no major issue as I have field repair units with me and those can deal with every kind of overheating damage except power plant and hull.
I made the trip by travelling via the arms. Instead of about 65kly when going via the core, this means one has to travel 96 kly. But as I defenitely wanted to see other parts of the galaxy, and I already made 3 trips to the core, I decided to take the tour around.
These next day or two I will stay here in the neighborhoud for local sight seeing and visiting some historical points of interest. One is called “the Treehouse”. As quoted by the 65kly club: “A difficult to reach point that juts out into the beyond, 65,339.95 LY from Sol. It is at the end of a “trunk” and a “branch” which requires an Anaconda configured for making long jumps to reach. The branch itself requires a 40.73 LY jump necessitating a partially depleted fuel tank. The Treehouse is among the most distant star systems currently surveyed and is situated near the Beagle Point.“. I hope I will survive this adventure, I’m a bit afraid I must admit.
Thereafter, I will continue my voyage and return home via the eastern side of our Milky Way, completing a 360 degrees tour this way.
Those who like statistics can find them here under.
Cheers, Cmdr Zeel.
My run was not aiming at speed, I went via the arms. I took two extra fuel tanks so that i was more comfortable crossing brown dwarf fields. This influences the plot jump range, but this is no issue for me, I have no race time schedule.
