I love games and I live games. Video games are my passion, my hobby and my job. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices.


  1. I have an issue with the Liberation quest, I just got the game so don’t understand how everythin works but I’ve explored multiple systems and looked around multiple freighters and no pirates… Am i doing something wrong?

    • pirates attack is a usual event. Just activate the mission and try to jump to another system. You can also check on Galaxy Map if the target system has high pirate activity.

  2. Guys, i need some help here. I cant find the rendevous points… i traveled 30k lightyears along the the road but found nothing. how far is that point?

    • it is a few systems from the start.
      Just activate the mission and in Galaxy Map select Mission target.
      You can also use the teleport on any space station and jump to one of players portal which has some “rendezvous” in it’s name.

  3. *** RENDEZVOUS 1 ***
    1. Land at Quest location on planet.
    2. Open visor scanner (press F) and switch to “Target Sweep Mode”. Visor may tell you its too far but travel in that direction. I traveled about 1,200u.
    3. Location should be an Outpost.

    • Yes, exactly. Or just fly around for a place with most message drones (remember it’s community expedition)

  4. Phase 2 – Mission 3 – Lawless Sky
    Help I can not find a system with pirates! Did everything else.

    • visit Umanta system between Rendezvous 1 and 2. Pirate systems also have pirate symbol instead of race on Galaxy Map.
