On the 8th November 2019 Frontier announced the 4th Interstellar Initiative – The Galconda. You can read about it below or on the offical site here (warning spoilers). Previous ones can be found in the Post Beyond: An Overview section here, or via the link on the main menu.
The ancient generation ship, The Golconda, has been discovered drifting amidst the stars. Contact with the ship’s living occupants has revealed that their ancestors chose to remain aboard their ship rather than colonise their original destination. The equipment originally intended for setting up a planetary settlement was cannibalised for materials but now… the Golconda’s crew find themselves in need of outside assistance for the first time in a millennia.
Efforts are underway to support the residents of The Golconda, but both the Federation and the Empire look upon this colossal relic with opportunistic eyes. There’s a political play to be made here, and the winner stands to benefit greatly.
For this next Interstellar Initiative, we’ll be detailing what’s at stake over the next few weeks. It’s time to back a side, and win!
