    Wow; great results, guys! I got 'antsy' and returned to the known universe early in the campaign. My top-15% status dropped to top-40% by the time it had ended. Still, I did learn a whole-heck-of-a-lot about a previously unexplored (pun intended) aspect of the game. I may end up being rewarded for my antsy-ness, however; since returning, I've aided Senator Whatshisname in freeing many slaves AND Emperor Whosonfirst's lovely daughter in investigating (read: blowing up) all known enemies of the Empire (primarily at resource extraction sites -- those thugs are always harassing innocent miners). Both are/were community goal bonus opportunities as well.
    Take the time, a second to soar; for soon after, beckons a second more.

      So, when are we doing a group flight to Sagittarius A*?

      The upcoming 1.3 update will allow us to install extra fuel tanks on internal slots, as well as fuel transfer drones.

          Three new combat Community Goals, one each for the Alliance, the Empire and the Federation. The Empire and Foundation goals are against each other in the Quivira system: Godel Dock for the Foundation and Stapledon Dock for the Empire. (Strictly speaking these are for or against Senator Patreus.) The Alliance goal is in the Zaonce system at Ridley Scott. Latest information has each ending at the same time, viz. May 8th at noon UTC, if top tier is not achieved.

              Support the Diamondback! There's a new community goal that's not advertised on Galnet.
              Originally posted by Wolf 406, Hamilton gateway, Bulletin board
              Economic armaments
              Earn rewards by supplying Metals to Hamilton Gateway
              The Wolf 406 Transport Co is pleased to announce the formation of a new partnership with Lakon Spaceways. The deal, which will see Hamilton gateway become one of the largest producers of the Lakon Diamondback class starship, is expected to be worth trillions of credits to the local economy.

              There is however, one small problem. Lakon Spaceways has insisted that the shipyards aboard Hamilton Gateway be made ready for large scale production within the next two weeks, or else the deal will be off.

              If the Lakon contract is lost, other recently acquired contracts may also come under threat. As such, the Wolf 406 Transport Co Corporation is currently offering a number of bonuses to any pilot who can help supply the Metals needed for the ongoing refurbishment effort.

              In order to earn personal bonuses you must sign up as an active particpant before selling Metals to Hamilton Gateway. Only Metals sold after signing up will be counted towards your personal contribution total.
              Tiers: 5
              Tier 5 tonnage: 10 million (my estimate)
              Tiers are even spaced at 2 million tonne intervals.

              Expiry date: May 29th.

              Progress as May 18th, 8am eastern:
              • Tonnes collected 2,000,048.
              • Contributors: 975.
              • Tier 1 (of 5) unlocked:
                • Top 5%: 1,000,000 Cr + global awards
                • Top 15%: 750,000 Cr + global awards
                • Top 40%: 500,000 Cr + global awards
                • Top 70%: 250,000 Cr + global awards
                • Top 100%: 25,000 Cr + global awards
