Looks like we have a release date for the last content drop, i.e., v2.4, for Elite: Dangerous "Season 2."

Greetings Commanders,

We’re very pleased to announce that Elite Dangerous 2.4 The Return will be released on Tuesday 26 September.

On launch day you’ll be interacting with the most mysterious and deadly things you’ve encountered in the Elite Dangerous galaxy – the Thargoids.

Elite Dangerous 2.4 The Return will then continue to roll out with interactive narrative-based content emerging over the coming months.

We can’t wait to see how you fare against these potentially deadly adversaries on Tuesday 26 September.
Frontier has released a cinematic short to go with the release date announcement. Entitled "Commander Chronicles: Retaliation," it sets the stage for mankind's renewed contact with the "Thargoids":

All I can say is that I am glad I have already left Merope with my meta-alloys. :D
