Howling Mine is an interesting place, looks like a lot of work has gone into it but nothing is happening there, maybe some expansion is planned.
I headed toward Rocktropia Sub-warp but blundered into Rackham’s Nest where I hunted a few Cosmic Horrors as a diversion on the way. The rest of the journey was uneventful. Once at Rocktropia I repaired the ship before descending to the planet.
Later that same night I returned to the ship and headed to Crystal Palace, again at Sub-warp, I docked there to stay overnight.
