I'm a scientist, middle aged and like flying space ships. I discovered Elite Dangerous just recently and exclusively play it in VR. I try to avoid the grind-y bits of the game and exploring seems to be pleasant enough. Dunno what exactly this group does but I was recommended by someone on Reddit so I joined. Hi I guess.
Welcome Goocy, thanks for dropping in! We're in control of a minor faction based along the edge of the original human bubble and have found ourselves in the middle of all the Thargoid drama. As we interact primarily within the BGS sandbox, we are mostly PvE; traders, explorers, bounty hunters, miners etc. Any of these activities most times has a positive impact on what we do. If you're looking for some folks to chill with and wing up with now and then, we'd love to see you around.
Hi again, Goocy... glad to see you made it over here :) I'm also middle-aged, and trained as a scientist (BS in Biology; amateur mycologist). We have a few STEM professionals in SINC, and several goggle-heads. It looks like exploration will be improved in the next update. It's pleasant enough now, but needed s'more content (imho). Cya on Discord!
Hi Goocy! Happy to see another STEM out here in the black! If you want to have some fun going down the non-grindy rabbit holes in Elite there are some exploration-like ways to uncover the story and conspiracies happening in the background. Drop a line on Discord if you want and I'll get you a tinfoil hat. Welcome aboard!
I don't log into the site often enough. We have a pretty smart crew here, we've been pretty good at shedding any drama-creating folks so it's pretty laid back here.
A lot of us here have been together for a few years now, but we're definitely still an inviting crew.
