I chose to be a free explorer at the beginning of my game but stumbled onto a space anomaly after warping to a star system that I'd previously discovered. I made the choice to return to the path of the Atlas, thinking that it would allow me to make Atlas Pass V1's, but immediately after making the choice, talked to Polo and received the blueprint and realized I could have remained a free explorer. I reloaded a previous save and warped to the same star system but could not find the space anomaly.
Is this a bug? Is there a way to find another or do I just have to cross my fingers every time I warp to another system?
