Elite Journal: Aliens in Pleiades Sector JC-U B3-2?

Having left Obsidian Orbital behind me, I started to explore Pleiades Sector JC-U B3-2. I had never landed on a planet before, so had to figure it out. I’ve been told to ‘learn by doing’ many times, but while flying my brand-new Anaconda? I’m not even sure Commander Jameson would have done this…

I did manage to figure it out without doing too much damage, eventually landing on the planet mentioned in transmissions. Unfortunately though, all I could find initially were various crash sites and small settlements.

Eventually I did spot a number of other ships coming and going from a crash site, that led me down to an Anaconda buried nose-down in the surface of the planet. Just 1.5km away, I found the ‘Alien’ site everyone had been talking about.

The first thing I noticed is that it looks similar to one of the ancient Earth henges with upright standing objects seemingly pointing up towards the surrounding stars. I wondered if it might be a constellation recognized by the alien race who built or use it.

I then noticed what the other two pilots on-site were doing, and it seems they were intent to cause damage to the object. This is a huge shame because we do not yet understand what this is.

There are some really strange sounds coming out of this thing depending on where you are or what you happen to be looking at. It sounds very similar to pre-birth sounds, similar to what you might hear using a fetal doppler. I just hope we haven’t been attacking and destroying some kind of Alien nursery…

Space Gaming Category Information

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.

These days I use gaming to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I also occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch, and rather than doing this to instruct others of the best way to play, I do it because of the social interaction with viewers and other gamers.
