You can go out into space until your ship goes dead and is either destroyed or some good samaritan race (which could hardly be called that) comes along to help you.  Better to restart and poke around Sol some more before you take trips outside of Sol.

Remember that you can also transfer crew between your flagship and your escort ships.

If he's never found the starbase, then he's going to get hit by at least a few probes before a "good samaritan" happens along.

As for where the starbase is:

Explore Sol before leaving.  Remember the beginning sequence?  You're returning to Earth from Unservalt; so, why not pay earth a visit?

You get fuel in the 'outfit starship' part of the starbase.

Exactly.  Which is why I brought the "destroyed" option up.  Besides, it would be best if he reloaded anyway if he's far away from home with 2 units fuel and has never visited the starbase.

Just visit the starbase, and do what the Starbase Captain (Hayes) tells you to do... From there on, just follow what he advises you to do and you'll be allright.. Smiley

The reason is twofold.

Gas giants dont have "Surfaces" in the technical sense. They have solid cores, yes, but no true "Surface" to speak of.

If you consider the point at which the "Surface" begins to be any kind of solid mass, the air pressure from the gas giant would crush the lander before it got anywhere near it.

Hence the reasons you cant land on Gas Giants Smiley

you don't need more than one lander. I don't lose them  much anymore but if you seem to just save before a landing(don't land on hard to mine planets)
