 Operation Bad Reception

Deep Space Crew & Legacy Fleet, QISS Organizations & special invitationals.

Operation Bad Reception could best be summed up by its own scenario tagline: 

"Arms deals rarely go smoothly."

Differing opinions on gameplay approaches of the Orgs involved made this Inter-Org collab all the more interesting. Thanks to Legacy Fleet, QISS Organizations.

You can find out what & when the next Inter Org-Op is on the Events page, where you can sign up for notifications if you wish, these will also let you know of any preceded training ops...Sign up to join us & join in!


Operation Icarus

A lot of attention has been drawn to the Icarus 2 mission this month where folks have followed Crew's in-depth preparations & dedicated 22-day journey, travelling the HUGE distance to the Stanton Star - with interest as to where it would lead. The journey concluded with Crew arriving at their destination on 29 Jun 2951: shared by stream, celebrated with a playlist & acknowledged by some high profile advocators in the SC community. Including CIG.

Not quite satiated by their achievement - in the true spirit of exploration, Crew continue their journey to further find out if anything is at the centre of this star...yet... come on CIG finish the star, in fact, finish the Verse!!

In truth, there is already plenty to discover right now: Exploration HF

You can follow mission 3 of the Icarus Op - mission3 on the DSC Blog

DSC Gatherings

Crew gathered this month in Cellin's orbit - Crusader;
To discuss important topics from the perspective of the Org. Key points that arose were:

  • The Orgs perspective on griefing,
  • The organisation & preparation of provisions for long haul Fleet expeditions
  • DSC supply base sectors & their possible region-specific responsibilities
  • The future of exploration; with a focus on possible protocols of arriving on new planets for the first time when more systems open up in the Verse.

New members are welcome to Crew gatherings & it can be a great opportunity to get a clearer view of the Orgs overall perspective on things, to ask questions & input your own opinions - on a cool ship, in space!

There is usually at least one Crew & Fleet gathering every month. Find out when & where; here. Or sign to receive notifications for these & other DSC happenings to come.

This month's gathering was followed up by a wreck expedition on Cellins surface.
