Thanks for bringing this to our attention here on Steam. I for one would probably not have seen it otherwise.

Interesting read.

Sounds good, especially after todays Guardian FSD boost failured launch.

I thought there'd be more hype.
Hello, FD is literally making the anti-Thargoid research and military development alliance of the 3 superpowers put D Day references in their secret communiques. Totally not a big deal.

When the Allies sent that poem, raising awareness of the incoming invasion to free France and the rest of Europe, it obviously didn't mean the Nazis were coming. I think we're about to receive allies in the game. Who has been enemies of the Thargoids for a long time? The Guardians. Are you smelling what I'm smelling?

But the guardians were wiped from the face of the galaxy by their Ai servants multiple Millions of years ago.

and even if some did manage to survive why would they choose to send an obscure (at least to people over 1000 years from now) French poem as Forewarning of their impending arrival?

just waiting for another ancient socity to arise from the depths of space to over power all.
as one grows stonger in pwer so shall another rise to be destroyed.

no one has explored everywhere so there could be somewhere in the galaxy and race just waiting to be discovered.

Clearly, the french are from some other place in the galaxy and they are coming to the rescue.

As far as I know not all the Guardians have been eradicated by the AIs. Before they even split up into Traditionalists and modern Guardians a group split up from them as far as I know and we don't know about their whereabouts, if I remember right.
And the AIs could also still be out there.

If the AI's are out there, they're almost certainly around what has been theorized to be the Guardian Homeworld area in the Regor sector (Currently Locked/Quarantined?). Wasn't that also where AI relics were found early in Elite's history? One of those rare commodities you could only find in space USS's like Data Caches.

So were the Thargoids though? Well near extinction at least.

Do we have any idea what are in the arms of the galaxy? For all we know, there could be another alien species out there, watching and waiting. They might be about to make a move. Just a (probably pretty stupid) idea.

We (Canonn) are staking out the area, maybe as little as 6 hours to go !

ESDM did a giant expedition through the right-side-ish spiral arm and got probably a few tens-hundreds of thousands of systems scanned.
