The efforts of the commanders who actively participated in phase 1 of the Distant Worlds 2 expedition have finally borne fruit: the new scientific station is now open for docking in the Stuemeae FG-Y d7561 system.
Explorer’s Anchorage is currently in stage 1 of construction and is near Stuemeae KM-W c1-342, the system designated as waypoint 7. The station currently has only rudimentary facilities and will need a significant supply of raw materials for upgrades if it is to become the comprehensive research facility that is planned.
Waypoint 7 marks a three-week break for the expedition. These will be challenging days for travellers, as Cmdr Erimus Kamzel has announced in his roadmap:
- Stage 2 of construction will be deployed on February 28th, when more of the superstructure will be completed.
- Stage 3 of construction will be deployed on March 7th, when the community goal will be announced.
- March 14th will see stage 4 deployed and the end of the CG. The result of the efforts in this phase will determine which services will be available on board the station.
- The fleet is set to leave WP7 on March 17th, but those that decide to stay behind for a few extra days will see the final stage 5 of the station deployment on March 21st.
This pause will also provide an opportunity for slower-paced explorers to catch up with the fleet in time to participate in the construction effort.
