Katia Sae is extremely famous for being the first Capsuleer to visit every player-reachable system in New Eden, 7805 systems in total, without losing a single ship.3

Who are you, and what are you about in Eve Online? Like what do you do, what corp etc?

Hello, my name is Katia Sae and I fly with Signal Cartel. I love exploration and enjoy telling folks I do the sights, not the sites. 🙂 By that I mean, I enjoy exploration for the sake of exploration, going out visiting and seeing the sights and places that EvE Online has to offer, not so much into the game mechanics of doing Data or Relic sites.

How long have you been playing Eve Online?

Even though Katia’s journey began in December of 2009, my oldest character’s birthday is June 8th, 2003, so I’ve been playing Eve Online off and on since the beginning5. So, I’ve tried and played just about every aspect the game has to offer with the exception of the big Null Sec experience. That never really has appealed to me as I tend to be a solo or small group oriented player.

Why do you play Eve Online?

I’m trying to remember specifically what attracted me to the game other than I’ve loved SciFi all my life in all mediums: Books, Movies, TV, Art, Games, you name it. I was playing Earth & Beyond6 and enjoyed it (they even had walking in stations! lol) but it seemed to not be taking hold with the players (and died a year or so later). EvE Online was starting up and the only other option really. So, I tried it, liked it, and here I am.))

What are your future goals within Eve Online?

I’ve completed my goal with Katia! Which was to visit every system in New Eden and document the journey via my blog and gallery. That included all of High, Low, Null, and Wormhole space for a total of 7,805 systems plus 1 which was a visit to the developers only system of Polaris. I’ve retired Katia for now, but I do have other alt characters that I have for industry, Solo Pirate PvP, and of course exploration (who are in Signal Cartel as well), but don’t really have any goals with them other than just continuing to enjoy what Eve Online has to offer.

Katia Sae’s Blog

Do you have anyone you want to shoutout, people corps, recruitment ads etc.

First and foremost to my corp, Signal Cartel, for without them I never would have completed my journey. I documented the behind the scenes efforts and shout-outs on my blog starting with my post “Behind the Great Hunt Part 1” through “An Effective Team” which you can read more about there.
