I'm flying around, and there's this cloud/nebula ring circling the gate thru which I had arrived to this system. It must go on for hundreds of thousands of kilometers or more. It's set against an eerily green background. Once arriving at my departure gate, I spy another cloud/nebula formation, equally as huge, encircling the gate, as it were.
Thru every system I travel, I'm noticing all these formations, and no two systems seem to have the same colour-hue to them. The local star(s) giving each nebula it's own beautiful coloration, I'm noticing a beauty in space that I have taken for granted all these years.
These space stations and jump-gates loom as monuments to humankind's achievements in New Eden. They are quite majestic and breath-taking, if you take the time to actually look at them.
I don't know the cause of this nostalgia; but, I find myself visiting a variety of planets, moons, even asteroid belts. The variety in their individual beauty is staggering to the consciousness.
This... This is the reason I first looked to the stars and yearned to be a pod pilot. We may never fully understand the secrets of those who went before us; but, we can bask in the beauty that must have captivated their hearts and had them create their wonders in these very systems...
