Elite Dangerous: Thargoid attacks

Thargoids have attacked stations with their new (to us) Medusa class ships. It was a non-interactive event, but interesting nonetheless, and has a lot of potential for near-future content. Here's Scott Manley's overview of the situation so far:

"The first mistake most gameplay zealots make is thinking that the game should revolve around them. The second is believing that it already does."
"Maybe it's just a game. Or perhaps it's a world. Perhaps it's a community. One thing is for certain: If it's only a game to you, then that is all it will ever be."

Re: Elite Dangerous: Thargoid attacks

Just a heads-up for players who may have been away for a bit: The Federation ships are temporarily free of their rank requirements and apparently cost approximately 15% less. (At least up to the Federal Gunship hull; I'm not sure about the Federal Corvette but probably.) This is a result of a recent event as a response to the recent Thargoid attacks. I don't know how long this will last, so those of you with insufficient Federation rank but want to grab one had better do it soon.

It's supposed to last a week, from what I've heard.

Re: Elite Dangerous: Thargoid attacks

Had a bit of time today and was able to confirm that the Federal Corvette is in fact not included in this special deal. Either that, or the offer expired in much less than a full week.
