The only CMDR to ever see Raxxla is CMDR Thrust from Bradford. He was there.
You should ask him.

Well, you've been out of the loop a little while Murder Penguin. Apparently, as of late, three relatively well known, high profile members of the community have gone on record as having been in the room when Michael Brooks said it. What to make of it all, I don't know. But there has been some traction on it in the past few days.The 'honked but not scanned' thing is an urban myth.
Since no one else (as far as we know) went through the system after it was locked, that would make it highly likely it is a permit the community hasn't figured out how to unlock yet. It is also a single system permit, not a body permit, or region permit. That actually narrows it done a lot, if true.My theory is based on 2. ... I think when that commander went through the system, Frontier suddenly realised people could find Raxxla accidentally before Frontier were ready for players to find it, and then locked the system (permit locked it). I know a system was permit locked after a commander went through, but I can't find which system that was (and I have asked the community).
I also don't think it's a planet, but an outpost or ruins or structure of some kind on a planet.

I have a question about raxxla in old elite games. If i remember correctly the first elite game uses pairs of letters to give planets names and there wasn't "xx" combination. The closest combination was planet "Rainla". And I found interview with Ian Bell that tells about it Link . Q: The most...forums.frontier.co.uk
You're free to believe it is a myth if you want, but not only do I think it was said at Lavecon, I think I was at the Lavecon when it was said ... but my memory is terrible and I can't remember everything that was said at the four Lavecons I have been at.The 'honked but not scanned' thing is an urban myth.
they put it in the codexWell, truth be told they don't actually dangle anything. They rarely say anything about it, other than chuckle at questions if they arise. At the beginning all that they said was that it is in game (Not even what it is). This undying quest to find it is kept alive by players alone.
Yeah, but he was replying to my statement that they don't dangle anything.Yeah, and Anacondas could launch Sidewinders until we got SLFs
Lore is one thing, the game is another. The Codex entry could just be there for lore purposes.
Very well said.nope. It's just a carrot FDev dangles in front of players to keep them playing. Raxxla is a lie. People have gone code diving in the original games (some of which were rumored to contain Raxxla as well) as well as the current Elite client and there as nothing there either.
At best, it may just be another planet in a random system that was renamed. There is no gameplay or anything else associated with it.
finding manmade stuff (peoplemade stuff if you're one of THOSE people) can happen anywhere as it's random. You can find guarded caches and crashed satellites at Beagle Point. You can get attacked by a bounty hunter at Beagle Point if you have bounties and notoriety.I've edited the OP twice, and no one seems to have noticed, so I'm writing this in the hopes people do now notice the changes.
