From Mica’s Diary
With the wormhole having collapsed, I now had no way back to the home systems in Catch. This added pressure now renewed my resolve to find a exit and I continuing scanning fervently. However, with the Class 5 system spanning beyond 32AU, my core scanner probes could not cover the entire system making it very tiresome to track down each signal. The mess of gravimetric signals meant I had scanned down almost every gravimetric site but a wormhole exit!
Finally, a difficult signal presented itself and I thought this might be it. When I exited warp, I couldn’t believe my eyes! An entire of high end ores including Mercoxit!
The sheer amount of high-end asteroids in this belt was a sight to behold and I quickly took time to observe them. They certainly looked different since I last saw them. The mercoxit with its fiery crystals would have surely made Jar go wild with his Hulk!
As I finished surveying the belt, I found yet another signal this time a cosmic anomaly “Core Garison”. This looked to be more heavily guarded than my previous encounter and I chose to keep my distance and concentrate on the task at hand.
Finally! After spending countless hours tracking down each signal, I had found 2 wormhole exits successfully. One lead to another Class 5 system (J100415) without any spatial effects while another Class 3 (J113143) beckoned. The thought of being stuck for much longer did not appeal to me as I had no ships to take advantage of the bounties before me. I quickly prepared the ship and took a last look at the system map:
2 x Core Stronghold (Anomaly)
1 x Core Garison (Anomaly)
1 x Minor Perimeter Reservoir (Ladar)
2 x Average Frontier Deposit (Grav)
2 x Common Perimeter Deposit (Grav)
2 x Ordinary Perimeter Deposit (Grav)
2 x Unexceptional Frontier Deposit (Grav)
2 x Rarified Core Deposit (Grav)
2 x Wormhole (Class 5 and Class 3)
This would have been an interesting place to create a tiny foothold but without the right equipment, every delay meant I would run out of supplies. As I made the jump into the wormhole leading to another unknown space, I hoped that there would be a safe way for me to get home.
