Introduction

Eslachlan Kayham (Panda's)

Panda's base on Eslachlan Kayham was built on 27 August 2017, although the Legacy Hub planet had been discovered by Galactic Hub second-in-command AndyKrycek on 10 December 2016 and further explored by him in March, April, and August 2017, although he never built there. This is a rare example of a planet being discovered, visited, but not settled by the original player, instead inhabited by another Hub member months after the discovery. The base itself is agricultural with a bi-level hydroponic farm containing rare plants for anyone to harvest.

Two sources of delight also make Panda's Legacy Hub base noteworthy. First is the presence of an alpha-class Explorer-type ship, wrecked in the deep desert, marked by a floating communication station indicating an ancient topography. Another comm station marks where a beta-class Hauler-type shipwreck used to be, but the ship is either long-gone or long-buried thanks to the v1.3 update. The second oddity is the Sentinel trapped in the botany bay of the base, something not encountered previously by Reinhard during the NMS Archaeological Project.

This is the 24th base investigated by Andrew Reinhard for the No Man's Sky Archaeological project and includes text, photos, videos, and a manifest of communication station inscriptions.
