The next major section of my journey will be to follow the journey of the USS Voyager (Star Trek). Thankfully, a lot of the groundwork has been already completed by others, so mapping Trek's fictional stars onto the Elite Galaxy won't be such a chore. A major problem being that Trek's estimate of the size of the Milky Way is slightly larger than the one used here. Both claim to be accurate.
Anyway what it comes down to is that Occampa is outside the galactic rim by a direct map, so we (1/2)
He spent his days dashing around, making friends with anyone who came near him and accompanying CMDR Crispy Toast as his official "Exploring Buddy", on his adventures through space, often wrapped in a blanket.

Zy the Beagle was the epitome of the phrase "Man's Best Friend". Endlessly loyal and loving. Zy made sure his Commander was cuddled relentlessly after returning from a long journey; whether it was to another system, nebula, black hole... or just the local shop.
That's enough flying for today. As I shut down the nav systems for the night, I am just 1,615.7 LY from Beagle Point (31 Jumps), or, for those who don't know, that's 63,692.5 LY from Sol. We're talking the length of the USS Voyager's trip in Star Trek, and I made it out here in about 2 weeks.
Anyway, unless I'm distracted, I should make planetfall early tomorrow, just after breakfast. I'll spend a couple of hours on the planet before deciding whether to try for further out, or turn back home.
Not so far yesterday but reasonable progress was made. Should reach Beagle Point by the weekend.
I'm doubling as ship's cook today, so I probably won't make it very far, just flying when I can get to the bridge. My chief engineer meanwhile is down in fabrication, working on a new control system for left handed commanders, so no co-piloting from that direction.
