AESA Inaugural Deep Space Survey

EXPEDITION | 08.11.3306

The After Earth Stellar Alliance was founded to seek new regions in space and to lay the foundations for a new Earth, & build a self reliant civilisation among the far reaches of space.

The AESA Science & Research Centre are putting together a team of researchers, scientists and explorers. Each with their individual areas of research, provide data, samples and materials for study.


Scientific Research & Reconnaissance

The aim of the AESA First Scientific Research & Reconnaissance Expedition is as follows: 

  • Examine teraformable planets and Earth Like worlds for locations suitable for supporting local life.
  • Locate and retrieve lifeforms for study under laboratory conditions. In particularly how they adapt and survive (or not) under various controlled conditions. Perhaps we can discover and apply these methods to help human life survive in places where we have until now, thought impossible.
  • Research planet side materials and solar gases for the innovation of delivering more efficient methods of synthesising fuel.
  • Explore and discover thus far uncharted systems for future research for habitable zones. 
  • Discover new ingredients and research new techniques for the culinary delight of Arucane’s Deep Space Diner.


The voyage will take us to various points of interest for study, including (but not limited to) the Star Of India, Campbell’s Hydrogen Star, V1343 Aquilae microquasar, various black holes & nebula, Sagittarius A and a visit to see the Void Hearts. There will be a stopover a Colonia in both directions before heading home to Kuwema for Pimms and nibbles at Arucane’s deep space diner.

The Exploration, Science and Research carrier A.E.S.A Shackleton will provide support along the route including Universal Cartographics services, refuel and repair. The A.E.S.A Shackleton is currently undergoing a full refit and will by the time of the expedition, provide the most up to date science and research facilities. Along with very well appointed cabins, several communal areas, games rooms, movie theatre, meditation areas and day time/night time simulation for the health and wellbeing of those crew spending extended periods onboard.


For a Carrier-based expedition the following applies;

If you want EDSM to recognise your visits to each waypoint of the expedition you’re on, the onus is on you to make sure you’re either online at waypoint stopovers, or you fly back and visit any waypoint you may have missed when you were offline while docked aboard a carrier.
To be absolutely sure that you have a waypoint system logged as visited by you, you should hyperspace out of the waypoint system, and back in again, during the Carrier’s stopover there.
