    On this day, the eighth of August in the year 3302, I set forth with the goal of reaching the newly inhabited region of space surrounding Jaques Station. This trip of approximately 22,000 light years will be a long, arduous task, but I shall document it as best I can here.

    I will be followed in the coming weeks by other pioneers from LLA, and together we shall reach out into this new frontier of human civilization, free from the tyranny of established powers and centuries of greed, and we shall find for ourselves a new home - a better home. Wish us luck in this perilous trek, and we shall see you on the other side!

    I travel for Jaques too! Instead of the more traditional route, I decided to take the long way around the outer arm of the Milky Way, then hook back in to Jaques.

    Just headed out this evening, so I didn't get very far, only about 1600 ly from Sol. I have already seen some interesting planets though, including an Ammonia world 14 times the size of Earth.
