Upon emerging from the North gate in Xenon Sector 347, I turn my ship eastwards and slam the throttle to 100% in order to minimise any Xenon entanglements.
Upon approaching a location in the eastern quadrant, almost due east of the West Gate I detect a non-descript container on the scanner.
As I close in for a detailed scan, the container suddenly explodes leaving behind about 20-30 fighter drones which instantly start attacking me.
A while later the last of the drones self-destructs and leaves behind a Datastorage Device containing another fragment of the universe map and a clue pointing me towards the sector Akeela's Beacon.
Upon arrival in Akeela's Beacon, I note six navigational beacons scattered around the sector. The clue seemed to indicate that there should be seven, but then I do not have 100% coverage of the sector with my satellite survielance network there.
As I close in on the nearest beacon, it explodes as a small group of Xenon (a pair of M6's and a hanful of fighters) appear and start attacking me...
After disposing of them I head cautiously towards the next beacon. As I approach it, my system starts reporting a malfunction in my navigational software causing the jump drive to engage.
As the white flash of the jump event fades, I note that I am no longer in Akeela's Beacon and that there is a datastorage device floating near by containing another clue and another map fragment.
The following few clues went uneventful through the sectors of Savage Spur, President's End, Heron's Nebula, and Rhonkar's Clouds and left me with a partial universe map hinting at Xenon Sector 101 and a clue indicating I will need to head deep into the sector...0 Thanks, 0 Likes, 0 Dislikes
