Interstellar Initiative #1 – Bridging the Gap

On the 20th April 2019, the first of Frontier’s new ‘ Interstellar Initiatives’ started. You can read about it below and in the video below.

WHAT ARE INTERSTELLAR INITIATIVES?

Interstellar Initiatives are a series of in-game events and narratives that play out over the course of approximately a month. Each one features several phases that will alter as the story progresses and may end with lasting effects on the galaxy!

GALNET: ZENDE PARTNERS ANNOUNCES TRANSPORT SERVICE

Zende Partners has revealed plans to establish a ferry service between the core systems and Guardian space.

Freya Taine, the company’s CEO, made this statement:

“In response to increasing demand for Guardian commodities, my company aims to facilitate access to the area once occupied by the Guardians. This will involve the construction of a mega-ship to transport pilots to and from this comparatively inaccessible region.”

“Five systems have been highlighted as potential destinations, and we’d like to invite the galactic community to decide which of these should serve as the termination point for the mega-ship. We will then build an outpost in the chosen system, and the mega-ship will enter service.”

“We hope that this initiative will stimulate new innovations in the field of Guardian-human technology.”

Note: The mega-ship ferry itself is actually composed of two mega-ships, one that will jump to the chosen system, and one that will jump back to the system of Zende. These megaships will jump on the server tick each week.

HOW DO YOU GET INVOLVED?

Zende Partners have identified five locations in Guardian space where they will not only set up an outpost, but fund the creation of a Megaship ferry that will take Commanders from the system of Zende to a location voted for by the community.

It’s an ambitious plan, but with easier access to Guardian technology, Zende Partners hope to build and develop new technology to benefit the human race… and, perhaps, their economic standings.

To get involved with this first phase of Bridging the Gap, all you need to do is cast your vote in this thread.
