Elite newsletter talks star systems and an unofficial dangerous rating

Elite's Dahan III

It's Friday, which must mean that there's an Elite: Dangerous newsletter winging its way across the universe toward my inbox.

Yep, there it is now.

Issue #22 covers everything from Pilots Federation lore and rankings to capsules on the three power blocs (Empire, Federation, Alliance) you'll encounter whilst adventuring through ED's vast virtual universe. There's also a blurb about the five star systems centered around the Bootes constellation as well as a shout-out to Commander Starwind, who is the first player to reach the coveted -- and currently unofficial -- "dangerous" rating with over 2000 confirmed alpha kills.
