Orbiter screenshots - Grand Flagplanting Tour Chapter 2
A vessel made of several other vessels was bobbling around an oven-like rock.
It's course was being laid. Towards the twin blue and gray dot over the Oven's horizon.

| Their course set, the Stars are shot towards their next goal. |
| gtimg/gt-24 |
| 92 days of plowing the emptyness are rewarded by a blue pearl hanging right ahead. |
| gtimg/gt-25 |
| And they arrive at the Garden of Eden. |
| gtimg/gt-26 |
| That one is tricky to get down to. It's full of air and it's full of water.|
Yet, after hitting a board from low orbit on the Oven, it's no big deal.
| gtimg/gt-27 |
| And on sunrise, the being aboard the Ravenstar found out that every garden have it's mud pools. |
| gtimg/gt-28 |
| Latter the same day, the flag erecting ritual commenced.|
The mud was bad enough to keep the flag barely standing.
| gtimg/gt-29 |
| Rituals aside, it's time to have some FUN.|
There are years of waiting ahead anyway.

| Thru air into the mud...|
Time to blast off this place.
| gtimg/gt-33 |
| Mud or not, the view from over the Garden is breathtaking. |
| gtimg/gt-31 |
| As land stretches and moves below you... |
| gtimg/gt-32 |
| ...And you feel like standing on the top of the world... |
| gtimg/gt-34 |
| ...But for a space dweller, it's a common sight.|
No big delay incurred, the Dusty Moon is the next step.
| gtimg/gt-35 |
| Taking long for reaction fuel was low, the passage to the sattelite approached it's end. |
| gtimg/gt-36 |
| And the Ravenstar dived into the shadow of the Dusty Moon, slowing down on the way. |
| gtimg/gt-37 |
| Some good looks and reckoning for a nice spot to get down to, ... |
| gtimg/gt-38 |
| ...and getting down to it didn't take too much time. |
| gtimg/gt-39 |
| Hoping to beat the dust, he took off running to set the flag a little bit away... |
| gtimg/gt-40 |
| ...only to find out there is not so much dust as the name suggests.|
Now, it's time to wait, the Garden hanging high above, untill the way to the Red Devil will be open.
What's with space flight and waiting?
