Discovery Scanner - 14/11/2022

Greetings Commanders.

We have now just about reached the middle of the month of November. Things really are boosting along quite rapidly now.
We hope you had great weekend just passed!

Let’s reflect a little but then look on to another week setting forth into the Galaxy.

Game News

Regular notice regarding Update 14.
We’ll keep this note in once again, to maintain confirmation:
Update 14 is still marked for release at the end of November. We would like to reassure you that there is no further change to this schedule as of this week and hope to release a formal date for your diary soon.


Frameshift Live #21

Join the Elite Dangerous community managers for Frameshift Live #21 this week, where they'll be sharing a little insight into Update 14, as well as all of the usual topical news favourites over on the official Elite Dangerous YouTube and Twitch channels.

For those of you joining via Twitch, drops will be once again enabled.


Galnet Headline Spotlight

Professor Alba Tesreau, Professor Ishmael Palin and Ram Tah have released a joint statement regarding the alien sound heard at HIP 22460.

An excerpt reads:
“What was audible to humans was only part of a complex multi-frequency transmission, amplified by the energy surging through the Thargoid surface site which housed the Proteus Wave weapon. Its specifics remain indecipherable for the moment, but certain aspects were isolated with the aid of Ms Seo, whose unique neural implants were designed to interface with Thargoid technology.”

We’re really invested in all of the conversations around this latest discovery with Commanders right now, so do continue to share your thoughts via the Forum and social media.


Galnet News Roundup 

Speaking of latest news, the latest weekly drop of Galnet News Roundup went live last Friday.

Community Events Spotlight 

Start: 12/11/2022 | 00:00 AM UTC
End: 20/11/2022 | 11:59 PM UTC
Location Start / Finish: Aura, Atkov Ring

The Buckyball Racing Club are back and we’re as ready as ever for this next event in the calendar!

Did you ever have a moment when out exploring or when trading or running missions or otherwise travelling from one system to another only to get a rude awakening by almost crashing into one of the stars in the system you jumped into?
Maybe you even passed through its atmosphere and scooped a bit of fuel! 

This can happen for very tight binary systems depending on your angle of approach, but tight triples can leave you cooking in between multiple stars. 

There are not many in the Bubble, but you'll meet a handful here and hopefully live to tell the tale. 'This is The Trouble With Triples'.
There are two classes for this race:

  • Regulation Diamondback Scout. This is a standard ship and loadout with no engineering, so every pilot flies the same ship. The cost is a little under 4 MCr but you may be able to find discounts for the ship and modules. It has a maximum jump range of 29.01 LY on fumes.
  • Unlimited. The only restrictions on loadout here are not using supercruise assist or docking computers (see below for full restrictions).

For full information and discussion, view this event over in the official Elite Dangerous forum.

This event is already underway, BUT we’re sure the club would still love to hear from you if you’re interested!


To add any of your Elite Dangerous events to share with fellow Commanders who may wish to take part, head on over to the official Community Calendar at

As always Commanders, thank you so much for sharing your continued passion for discovery across the Galaxy and beyond. 

Here’s to a productive week ahead, once again!

Fly safe.
See you in the black o7
