The Quest To Find Raxxla

It's a good idea starbrow. I've already proven myself incapable of getting inside! I don't have any guardian stuff for the same reason. Do you fancy checking it out?
The problem would be getting the guardian stuff to settle between the two nodes without the use of an SRV. I think you'd have to be pretty adept at dumping cargo to get it into those goal posts. Maybe its wide enough for a SLF to squeeze in there?

I just thought the whole anti-matter universe that shares the same space would fit with a place that isn't a place? Maybe.
Not to mention the concept of Raxxla as some kind of alien portal. In the episode "All our Yesterdays" the inhabitants of Beta Niobe's only planet, Sarpeidon, managed to escape their star's supernova by way of portals that allowed them to resettle into different time periods in their own planet's past.
 
A small snippet gif from the Interstellar Initiatives video, Bridging The Gap at 1:52. Sadly was not able to slow it down enough to see it frame for frame.
Starts in Dahan, closest system to Ithaca (Home of Odysseus) and as it zooms out it reveals Aganippe and Demeter, among others, including Ao Qin. Also shows Barnard's Loop and Andromeda. All the systems which launched me into this black hole of a journey.
The path of that camera movement is a line. It's like a ship backing out of a garage port, then u-turning to boost forward along the same direction.

It's easy to set up a utility in Excel for "give me the line created by these two points"; the x,y,z coordinates of the points along the line just increase proportionally to the coordinates of your two index points. You can get the coordinates for any "distance" along the line, 1000 LY, 2000 LY, etc. You can go there.

You have several points, so that means you have a jitter (cylinder around the line where things may be).

The galaxy is a pancake. Some lines can be very short, if they angle up or down and hit the floor or ceiling of the pancake. For example, Sol -> Maya -> beyond. Some lines can be medium: Cupid's Arrow -> Maya -> beyond. Some can be very long, Reorte -> Riedquat -> Syreadiae JX-F C0 -> beyond.

There's a lot of jitter if you take Reorte -> Riedquat as the points for a line; they're too close together. Not enough digits of precision in the coordinates of those two systems results in hundreds of LY of jitter by the time you get to Syreadiae. However, Reorte -> Syreadiae is a very thin precise line; the points are far apart.

In any case, you've identified those systems and they're familiar. Follow the camera along its line.

Ship Stolen from Starport
25 APR 3305
An independent pilot’s ship has been stolen from a starport hangar in the Vega system.

The ship’s owner, Commander Bjorn Lennox, told Vox Galactica:

“I’d docked my Diamondback Explorer at Fort Dixon for some routine maintenance, and to enjoy a short break following a deep space exploration voyage. When I went back to the landing pad I discovered the hangar was empty and my ship had gone missing!”

The starport issued a statement from Security Chief Misaki Sanders:

“We are at a loss to explain how the thief managed to hijack our security network, gain entry to a docked and sealed ship, and override authorisation checks to fly out of the station unchallenged.”

“Nearby systems have been alerted and we are collecting leads to track down the stolen vessel. In the meantime, we are conducting an inquiry into how these breaches of docking bay protocols could have occurred.”

Docked Ship Thief Identified
03 MAY 3305
The individual responsible for stealing a docked Diamondback Explorer in the Vega system has been identified.

Fort Dixon Security Chief, Misaki Sanders, told the media:

“We have determined that Commander Bjorn Lennox’s vessel was stolen by a starship technician, who evidently acted alone without backup.”

“The technician, Gan Romero, has worked at Fort Dixon as a member of the hanger service teams for the past eleven years. He has a stable home life on the station with a wife and three children, with no criminal record.”

“Although Romero’s job gave him access to landing pads, it does not explain his ability to bypass ship security protocols or launch without authorisation. We have yet to determine his motive or destination.”

“The scope of our investigation is widening and we hope to know more soon.”

Ship Theft Mystery Deepens
11 MAY 3305
Mystery continues to surround Gan Romero, the starship technician who single-handedly stole a docked vessel in the Vega system.

Romero’s wife, Lara, agreed to an interview with Vox Galactica:

“I haven’t the faintest idea why Gan took that ship, or how he managed it. It’s totally out of character for him. He’s not impulsive or even ambitious really. Always been the practical type, which is why I married him. I can’t believe that he would do anything like this.”

“Had he been acting strangely? Well, something was on Gan’s mind…I guess you could say he’s been distracted recently. I’ve caught him staring out into space a few times. And his sleep was disturbed by intense dreams, although he never wanted to talk about them.”

“The kids keep asking when their dad is coming home. I just hope the Fort Dixon security services can find some explanation for all this, and bring Gan home to us.”

Have been thinking along the same lines and have just arrived at Fort Dixon. So far nothing unusual. Found a „mayday“ USS, which held an Adder run out of fuel. Will be scanning Frameshift wakes outside Fort Dixon later.
 
You can transform Lennox into Raxxla with a Vigenere key gwkkxd. But it's not that, it just sounds like Lennox's DBX may have had something in the logs that even he didn't know about, and Romero saw it during maintenance, and caught the fernweh.

Mmm, with his recent episodes of sleep disturbance with intense dreaming, and periods of distraction, I think this is more likely mind control/hexedit related, or even AI construct; hadn’t been looking at Guardian relics/blueprints/ materials recently had he? Expect a storyline in about 2 years...

Perhaps Romero was in a state of cosmetic enlightenment. ;)
 
Following up on Gurus advice: Loads of Romeros on Wiki. Most of them seem to be content playing football, serve the church or to be Artistes. None of the is/was an explorer of any kind, one is a game designer who gave us Quake.
 
I was curious to see if I might see something Raxxla-related in the patch notes from Gamma, and sure enough, buried way down in the list ... "Secret added". Lots of people in the comments seemed to suspect that it meant Thargoids, but since the Thargoids didn't show up until much later, I suspect it was Raxxla (whatever that may be). I think it's neat that they put things like that in the patch notes. I think I'll continue to look over the more recent patch notes to see if any clues might be lurking about.

It could have been Drew's Anaconda.
 
Probably it was in this thread already. This logo of Raxxla looks like triple aspect of Hecate who often was imaged as a triple woman figure. She brings the light by holding torches. Also same visual and back was for Artemis, Persephone and Eileithyia (Ilithyia) who lights the dark for the children. There are two systems with this names but no any variations of Eileithyia.

P.s. My bad English's joke: Ilithyia - Elite(yia) :D
I am pretty sold on Hecate ( ya some of this has been gone over before.)

Yup - The strophalos or circle of hecate is very similar to the inner part of the raxxla logo. ( circle with three arcs)

A door that is also a key.... Hecate is a goddess of gateways/ transitions and key bearer....

From the bits and pieces of the Chaldean Oracles it depicts Hecate as something of a conduit between realms...

This gets into Neoplatonism and Starts me on the song of the spheres and sirens ...
Check this paper out: "Sirens: From the Deadly Song to the Music of the Spheres. Homeric Readings and Platonic Interpretations"

To tie things up we go to the Myth of Er from Platos Republic where he describes the gates of hell. (and talks about Lady Fate, which to be honest I thought Id hear more of)

Here is an interesting paper talking about "PLATO’S X & HEKATE’S CROSSROADS ASTRONOMICAL LINKS TO THE MYSTERIES OF ELEUSIS

well atleast its giving me some new ideas on where to look...
 
The thing to remember about the Codex is that it exist in-game as a feature that our CMDRs can access from their cockpits.

To place any meaning in the particular logo that was chosen for the Raxxla entry in the Codex is to assume that whoever designed the Codex's interface in the game universe posseses some kind of knowledge about Raxxla that allows them to say, "This circle, nested inside a hexagon is intrinsically representative of Raxxla".

I find it far more likely that the icon is completely arbitrary. Lacking any other graphical representation for Raxxla both the fiction in-game curator of the Codex and Frontier Developments have opted for a more-or-less random collection of geometric shapes and cobbled them together to create an icon simply out of the need for us users to have something inside the codex to select when accessing the Raxxla entry. Trying to assing any hidden meaning behind the image is probably a waste of energy. Even if the image somehow contains a deeper hidden meaning it is unlikely that we'll be able to decode that meaning without the right context.

On the other hand ... the lack of any serious leads toward locating Raxxla makes it irresistable to speculate on even the slightest piece of evidence.
