The first starport constructed in the Galactic Centre region has officially opened its doors.
Explorer’s Anchorage, an Orbis starport, has been built in the Stuemeae FG-Y d7561 system as part of the Distant Worlds II expedition.
Councillor Magnolia Gill, the starport administrator, announced its operational status:
“For the last four weeks we have watched our new home take shape, using materials delivered by many hard-working pilots. Now it spins in the galaxy’s heart, a monument to humanity’s ingenuity.”
“As well as serving as a safe haven for future explorers, Explorer’s Anchorage is a scientific research installation. We hope to learn more about the supermassive black hole at Sagittarius A* and other astronomical phenomena in the Galactic Centre.”
The Distant Worlds II exploration fleet is continuing its journey across the galaxy towards Beagle Point.
