Hova Rises (Bez-Harr Embassy)

The Bez-Harr Embassy is a civic building in the shape of an inverted glass pyramid created by player art-nik. Despite the fact that this is another example of a buried, glitched base that relocated and rebuilt itself between the first visit by Andrew Reinhard in 2017 and final visit post-Atlas Rises in 2018, the site is of extreme significance to the early history of the Galactic Hub player enclave. In 2017, KingJamesHova created the so-called Empire of Hova, which encroached on Galactic Hub space resulting in escalating hostilities between Hova and the Hub. Communication station inscriptions placed in a cave adjacent to the original site of the embassy contain messages of both threat and compromise. A monument erected by KingJamesHova and THEKINGSNAKE hint at peacemaking, which would ultimately be signed by treaty in the Legacy Hub's Serenity system.

This was the 6th site visited by Andrew Reinhard for the No Man's Sky Archaeological Project, and the 2nd example marking his return to Legacy Hub sites visited prior to embarking upon the survey formally. This record includes a detailed site report and history, plus research questions, as well as videos, photos, and a manifest of communication station inscriptions.
