Once I finished with the disappointing Eagle Nebula, I headed straight up and away from the galactic plane, initially intending to head home by what would be an unexplored route. But after seeing how close I ended up to the Traikaae AA-A H2 Nebula, I figured, why not?
Frankly, this Nebula restored my faith in my journey as a whole. It was stunning.
Being so far above the galactic plane was also quite a sight, with relative blackness above and a dirty, dusty mass of stars below me.
After this? I’m heading home. Overall I have really enjoyed the experience exploring some sights that I truly feel better off for seeing. Now I can happily spend some time in populated space and know at least some of what lurks out there in deeper space.
My first space game addiction was with David Braben's 'Frontier - Elite II' released in 1993 on the Commodore Amiga. This game actually gave me so much of what I wanted in a game that I continued to play it until the 'Elite - Dangerous' release in 2014.
I also played through the 'Wing Commander' series from Chris Roberts, enjoying them immensely. This led directly to my support of his 2012 crowdfunding campaign for the Star Citizen and Squadron 42 games that are still in development.
I use space games to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch.
