As many know already the famous SS Galaxy ship in Second Life closed down after 8 years earlier this month and the regions are no longer accessible. The closure marked the end of an era but there is exciting news on the horizon because it’s going to be modified so that Linden Lab can place it back inworld as a Museum soon.
The ship will be open for visitors in the near future and the ship will be preserved as a piece of Second Life history so thats the good news at the moment. More information will be released soon.
- No previous management or crew will be aboard
- No rentals or events will be hosted
- The ship will exist in a museum state
- Linden Lab takes ownership of the sims
On Tuesday 12th May 2015, DBDigital Epsilon who is the former Manging Director of SS Galaxy said this in a recent blog post…
Dear Supporters and Friends of the SS Galaxy,
There have been many rumors cycling regarding the Galaxy and what really happened. I can’t release that information as of yet. However, I can now say that the SS Galaxy has been acquired by Linden Labs and will return. She is currently undergoing retrofitting to sail under the Linden Labs flag. I have been tirelessly converting all the transferable prims I personally owned to Linden Lab ownership, and my part of the project is now complete.
Sadly being under Linden Lab’s flag also means that none of the previous management or crew will be aboard in any sort of capacity. I have also been told there will be no rentals or events. This means she will not quite be the Galaxy you know and love. But she will still exist in a museum state and be open for visitation in the near future.
More information will be released as I can. I wish to thank everyone again from the guests, to the staff, and beyond. You all made the Galaxy the special place she was, and no one can take that from us.
