After doing the ordinary base stuff...

Sortie #1:
* Mine Mercury, Io, Pluto, get Fwiffo, return to base.

Sortie #2:
* Set up full thrusters, and as many turning jets as possible - leave
systems in direction you will go, leave with 95 units fuel.
* Leave by Mar 9 for Alpha Pavonis to get warp pod,
Beta Pegasi for rainbow world, mine Beta Chandrashekar 2.  
Arilou portal, get portal.
* Portal #10, return to base.

Sortie #3:
* Leave with Huh units of fuel & capacity for 210 units fuel.
* Direct trip to get to Pkunk.  
* Portal #6 to Arcturus for caster.
* Portal #11 - do fake God impression at Alpha Tauri.

* Portal #1 to Druuge, sell eggshell for Rosy Sphere.
* Portal #5 to Camelopardalis to drop shuttle off.

enemy if Ilwrath not there yet) to get aqua helix.
* Portal #15 to Utwig/Supox, go to Beta Librae to get Ultron, repair
Ultron, meet an Utwig in space on trip to Epsilon Hyades (use caster).

Would you mind recounting what order you did things in?  Was it simply my further-optimized plan, or was it different? You do seem to have saved about a month and a half, which is solid.

The line with the smiley should read:

* Leave with 140 units of fuel & capacity for 210 units fuel.

Must be too late/early for me...the numbers are off of a quasispace map I have here.

Portal #10 is the Sol portal.
Portal #6 is the Arcturus portal.  
Portal #11 is the one that puts you in the middle of Dillrat space.
Portal #9 is the one between Yehat and Mycon space.
Portal #8 is the Spathi/Zoq-Fot portal.
Portal #1 puts you in Druuge territory.
Portal #5 is the Camelopardalis portal.
Portal #7 is the Ur-Quan Monoceratosis (NW corner) portal
Portal #15 is the Supox/Utwig portal
Portal #16 is the Crateris portal.

Look for the Beamer Quasispace portal map - that's what the numbers are from.

I searched for it.  I didn't see a specific plan, but she did say she beat the game in November 2155.

I'm too lazy to search right now, but Kohr-Ah Primat said she finished a game rather quickly once.  She mentioned the date, and its in these forums somewhere...

I did a better job of tracking down the Thraddash, so I chopped one day off of my time (and yes I have a screen shot).  Can't think of much more to cut off of the plan I posted, so we'll go with October 05, 2155.

Any ideas on cutting this down even more?

hmmm....  Looks good to me, maybe you could mine Delta Touri while you are sending the illwrath away?

I tried that, actually.  I stopped it when I realized that I had enough resources just from mining Beta Chandrashekar 2 and saved a couple of days.  Thanks for the try, though.
