Welcome to the Galaxy, Commanders!
With the release of Elite: Dangerous on Steam, I felt inspired to put together a video covering some of the basics about getting started in navigating the galaxy. There are already a lot of great tutorials and guides out there for various topics on the game, many of which can be found on the Elite: Dangerous subreddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/EliteDangerous/)
I decided to stick to something fairly high level that touches on a lot of the core concepts of playing in this ginormous sandbox of a space simulator; this is just scratching the surface of what it is to play Elite: Dangerous, where each topic could easily be a video unto its own!
