So, after realising there is simply no bleedin' way we are going to find a way past this barrier to the center of the galaxy, I did the unthinkable and Googled it...
Turns out there is a whole quest chain related to getting past it. More information here
. Full description of all artifacts required and how to get them here
. It seems we only need 1 of each (we don't all require all of them), so that will at least make things a little easier.
...so, looks like we have our work cut out for us. To be honest, I am glad I Googled it, as otherwise we would have been faffing around getting nowhere for quite some time I think.
