I have had a lot of luck lately having null sec connections directly from my home system to 0.0 with no wormhole space in between. Eve is making it very easy for myself to poke around in different places! Recently I have been poking around through a low sec connection to Aridia that brought me evenly 5 jumps to Fountain or Delve. I also had a direct connection to Malpais, which was nice to see some Drone areas. Drones really have the coolest looking structures in game, I wish I got to see them more often then these mean Blood Raiders we have around home.
Roden Ship Construction Yards in Gallente Low sec
Into a "deadly" wormhole
Really are some of the coolest looking structures in the game!
