And I'm curious: has Commander Mara something common with Mara Jade from SW?

Why, yes, she has! (Mara Jade was the reason why I picked that name :P)

Updates might come soon as I have a bit more free time for the next 2 weeks!

Waking up from a long hibernation in Bemaera system, Mara discovered that her BroadcastCommsMFD is no longer beta and that the mysterious creator has also installed a few other upgrades to the ship's systems, including an upgrade to her personal trails upgrade...
The star map also no longer has the ugly mismatching circle but neat starlanes leading to reachable systems. Whoever designed the original map must have been bad with numbers, as many systems 6.8ly away seem to be outside of the supposedly 7ly circle.

She shall miss her cyan HUD with the big scanner, but found a shiny new HUD which does not have a numeric readout, but a very nice visual scale, and a very sleek look. Maybe the scanner could be made bigger? Well, only one way to find out, but first, time to get back in business. Next stop: Tionisla!

After another long hibernation, Mara discovered Xenon systems. With a nice blue look, a readable scanner and the most important instruments visible even when browsing the ship systems, those were an instant upgrade.

10 April 3142: The date might be off as I'm still a bit jet-lagged after the hibernations.
The flight to Tionisla was pretty uneventful - passed a couple of Sidewinders away from the planet, and then a Bug named I Love As I Find II in station aegis. The chatter in the aegis was pretty intense after the silence of space!

See the amazing trails? Judging by the three engines, it's a Viper Interceptor

The trading system now informs me I'm an Apprentice, having made a bit over 1500 Credits by my own virtue.

EDIT: What happened to the images auto-resizing? How can I get them to show properly?

The wiki can do this if you upload the image and link here a preview image.
Alternatively I recommend IrfanView to resize your images.

I might have to do a "redux" version of my HUD, based on those screenshots...

phpBB doesn't do image resizing.. as Norby indicated, you'll have to resize them yourself, upload them, then link to them.
