Cyllene Orbital Finally Finished

Well done Operation Ida members - all the required commodities to repair Cyllene Orbital have been received. It's been a long slog to complete this station but it's good to know we will have another local refinery to help out with future repair efforts in the Pleaides. I know it has been particularly frustrating travelling over 12k LS to make regular deliveries in the Atlas system and having the corrupt, greedy swine called the local authorities divert your cargo elsewhere once it has been delivered. The workers who are finalizing the repairs have now apparently decided that they're unhappy with this state of affairs and are holding a strike until sometime next week so we will have to wait a few days before the station comes back online. Damn them all.

Thank you for your perseverance in making deliveries, and as always for the wonderful camaraderie that has been established. You are all awesome. The good news is that our next station will be a lot easier. As has been mentioned elsewhere before in the Discord this will be Borrego's Vision in Pleiades Sector IH-V c2-7.

Good luck, happy hauling and I look forward to meeting many of you out there!



Hudson Observatory Completed

Hudson Observatory has received all the required deliveries.. Another achievement reached, go Operation Ida! That makes 3 stations we have worked on as a team, with 4 repaired overall in the Pleiades. Our next target is Cyllene Orbital in the Atlas system. This is another refinery. The supercruise distance is a little longer than those we've repaired so far, however it's not a killer. To our Hutton Truckers, it's laughable. Be strong, keep hauling and thank you for all your contributions - whatever amount you're able to commit to.

Remember to maintain legal speeds around the repaired station. With a 12k LS supercruise you will be kicking yourself if you get fined and can't hand in cargo. If you need to clear off your fine, there are interstellar factors at Obsidian Orbital in Maia, Malthus Terminal in Pleiades Sector HR-W d1-41 and Oort Orbital in Pleiades Sector KC-V c2-4.

Thanks once again and let's get these stations repaired. o7

Malthus Terminal Completed


Another great achievement - Malthus Terminal has been completed! This will give us another refinery to work with in the Pleiades. Our next target is Hudson Observatory in HIP 17694. Please remember to watch your speed around the station, if you get fined then you will be unable to sell cargo until the fine is cleared. Currently this station is owned by Sirius Mining Merope and fines can be cleared at stations in Merope (Alcazar's Hope and Omega Prospect), Pleione (Stargazer) and HR 1183 (Arc's Faith). There is also an Interstellar Factor available at Obsidian Orbital in Maia.

Thank you for your hard work, dedication and high spirits. Go team!

The Oracle Completed

Greetings CMDRs, Today is a great day as we reached our first goal of repairing The Oracle. A criminal gang has been discovered hoarding and selling the supplies on the black market. As part of the bust, huge quantities of repair equipment was found and handed over to the maintenance teams who have worked double time to bring the station to 100%. This was the first damaged to be attacked by the Thargoids and it is the first station to be repaired by Operation Ida. Let this station be a beacon of hope for the people living in the Pleiades Nebula for they can now know that they're not forgotten.

I'd like to thank all those CMDRs that collectively worked to repair The Oracle - especially I'd like to thank the Hutton Orbital Truckers who not only hauled large amounts of commodities but also spread the word for Operation Ida and supported us with their knowledge about the universe in general. And I'd like to thank Obsidian Ant for spreading the word as well. But there are many other player groups that supported us additionally, e. g. the 77th FSD, the Federal Democratic Command, R3D and Third Independent Fleet. And all of this wouldn't have been possible without the support of the coordinators Ninj, Relix Typhon, Darth Dev, Bigmaec, Killshooter and weakspleen .

Our next goal is to repair a Refinery station and the coordinators decided to repair Malthus Terminal next as further Refinery supplies should boost the repair progress for other stations:

I hope for continuous support of all our CMDRs out there! Happy hauling and fly safe
