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
  • Departure on September 22, 3306
  • Return November 22, 3306
  • 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)
  • Presence of the DSN Phileas Fogg [X2N-T7K] Fleet Carrier at each WP, allowing repairs/stocking, data sales, and eventually vessel change.
  • For the first time, it will be easy to change ships to run activities during the expedition.

Moreover, due to the departure and return of Colonia, we organize a number of steps before and after the expedition :

  • Phase 1 : Filling the Tritium reserves of DSN Phileas Fogg [X2N-T7K], in the Bubble
  • Phase 2 : DSN Phileas Fogg’s [X2N-T7K] journey from the bubble to Colonia, with the possibility for each participant to take one or more ships on board to reach Colonia. Departure on September 13th

  • Phase 4 : the expedition itself, from September 20 to November 22
  • Phase 5 : Filling the Tritium reserves of DSN Phileas Fogg [X2N-T7K], in Colonia
