Our fleet’s main goal is to reach the ultimate star and taking the ultimate shot while getting there. To us, destination is not so relevant. It’s the journey which matter the most.
STUDYING THE ‘VERSE
Explorations means many things. To us, it implies a better understanding of what surrounds us. To do so our expeditions are intended to be a moment, for our members, to view the ‘Verse in a different angle. Reporting what we see is our duty, in order to let others experience what we felt first hand.
As explorers, we aim to collect information and shots of what we find during our journeys and deliver them to the citizens of the ‘Verse. In doing so we publish several periodicals and special magazines, as well as interviews and documentaries.
TAKING THE ULTIMATE DRAMATIC SHOT
Our members (main and affiliates) explore the ‘Verse with their ships, minding their business but with the goal to take the ultimate dramatic shot. All shots collected and submitted to IMPERIAL GEOGRAPHIC will be scrutinized and, ultimately, inserted in our magazines.
