I didn’t go it alone when I left the Orion Arm. We took my Privateer of course, hauling four cargo pods packed to the bulkheads with supplies for good measure. And two Austins escorted us all the way. You can see things farther away out there, so we were able to spread out further in search of any gravitic runs. There weren’t many, and those we found were very weak compared to those we can ride out of Alpha Centauri for example. It’s real unsettling to find yourself out in the middle of nowhere with nothing to tell you which way to go.
