« To reach for new heights and reveal the unknown »
The DSN is proud to present its new expedition: the Zephyrus Reach.
This expedition will start from Colonia and head northwest to reach the Zephyrus area, passing through a series of particularly interesting waypoints on the main theme of black holes and nebulae. In addition, for the first time, the DSN Fleet Carrier, DSN Phileas Fogg [X2N-T7K] will be present throughout the expedition in support.
Features of the expedition
- Departure and return to Colonia

- Total length: 60,000 Ly
- Weekly trip: between 6,000 Ly and 12,000 Ly per week (with the possibility of boarding the Fleet Carrier at each waypoint)
