I guess they just mean going through a black hole, judging by the badge.

it causes you to travel through a black hole (talk to captain) and sends to random location

I’m looking forward to this one.
Got the PS5 remotes all charged up, snacks in the pantry & my comfy gaming/office chair already out in the lounge in front of the newly replaced 4K TV. Retirement has its perks :grin:

What is a “polestar” anyways?

I had the memory/idea that the name was something to do with a reference to a real star, (something to do with the ‘first’ star or something), but I couldn’t find any info to back that up…
A google search reveals Polestar** is a Swedish electric vehicle company owned by Volvo. They got their name from a racing background ie Pole (position) Star. …or something like that.
