  1. M1 Pickups

    Celebratory drinkies over and it’s back to business – the two abandoned M1s in sector 1716. By the time I get back into the sector the Xenon presence is somewhat reduced, though still substantial. After some flying around to draw the Xenon away I head for the Condor as it’s the nearest. Transferring my jump drive and e-cells across I order it to jump out to Heliopsaris Omega and dock at the SY while I fly after it manually to get my JD back. Transferring all the remaining equipment

  2. Shortcut to the Big Prize

    Well after nearly 5,000 trades the Teladi have grudgingly allowed me access their core sectors. By now I have a Baldrick SF and a Hayabusa fully repaired and kitted out just waiting for this moment and my Elite is now doing remote salvage operations while I cruise in my lovely Nemmy. As soon as I find it, I jump them over to the Space Equipment Dock in Atropos IV and get Trade Mk3 installed. I decide to start one off sector trading in New Horizons and the other in Sirius II while I contemplate repeating

  3. The Grind

    So I’m exploring again, this time in Split space, with SETA disabled because I’m remote trading with the Teladi in Atropos II. A salvaged Mercury with a maxed-out hold full of e-cells is selling them to one of their stations one... cell... at... a... time. At first I made the mistake of selling the full cargo (retaining a few cells for the jump back to the SPP in New Horizons) but this didn’t seem to make an impression. Selling them one by one is slowly doing the trick – after several thousand itsy-bitsy

  4. First Steps

    So, a whole new universe just waiting to be explored, and in a Disco that’s all I can do... I put on some music from my large collection of ancient Terran ‘tunes’. This particular ‘album’ I got from a Terran Valkarie pilot who said it always reminded him of his “proud Nordic heritage”. I fly ‘North’ and start to map out the boring Boron sectors, and after a few gates I’m in Aspiring Hope. Abba clicks off abruptly and is replaced by something much harsher which really doesn’t suit my mood. I engage

  5. Where do I Begin?

    All stories start somewhere, and mine begins in the old Universe.

    Back there I’d done it all. I was a hero; my trading empire covered the entire map; I had annihilated the Yaki and taken all of their sectors; my fleets were the rival of any of the races yet I was friends with all; and I had arranged an extremely degrading downfall for that bitch Senator McCarthy for handing me over to the Paranid. My factory complex was so vast and sprawling that I needed a few stiffeners before I
