Meet the Fuel Rats, the fearless space medics in Elite Dangerous

Rats will save you from the void.

Elite Dangerous’s galaxy spans 100,000 light-years: a scaled-down replica of the galaxy to fit on your PC, but still as vast as outer space. In Elite, you can be a trader, adventurer, explorer — or a special kind of explorer who sets off to the farthest reaches of the galaxy to set the record for the furthest distance from the solar system. This ambition doesn’t always work, and if it doesn’t work out, you could be adrift in deep space with no fuel to take you home. That’s when you call the fuel rat.
