Argon Prime Shipyard

Welcome to the Argon Prime Shipyard please have your Ids ready and mind the Gap.

Whew if that process was any more intense I should get a dinner out of it. Now off to the sale yard. I wonder were to go first. Maybe Iíll head down to Home Light and Ore belt to trade some energy and scan the asteroids. I will work the Argon sectors until I have enough credits for my Mercury. Man this place is bigger than it looks from the shuttle (enters sales yard and no ones in site) Ok where is the staff in here? Anyone here? Who wants to know (A short grumpy man walk in from the back) I do sir I want to buy a Disco. A what?? A Disco ship I mean a Discover with some upgrades. Well you do ya Ö let see your papers to start. You do have papers right?

Com on. (Personal Data link on arm)
Up data to ship purchase.
They want the Rep information and I just don't have any yet. All I want is a stinking Disco and I have enough to get one with some modest upgrades on it. I keep telling this fool Sales rep that I canít get the rep until I get a ship and you will not sell it to me how is this going to work?. After an hour of this going on I gave up for now and I thought the customs where bad. Iím getting no where with this guy, Iím head down to the lounge area to find some leads on a ship and to take edge off my aggravation..
Com off.

I start what I thought was my new life here at the Argon Shipyard and getting a ship here is expensive and harder than I thought. I have been at the bar for awhile now and this was not what I thought this day was going to be like. No new shiny ship. No exploring the profits of argon and beyond. I work hard around that ore mine and working behind the seen at the docks will not be my life. After a few more rounds at the bar, my life not much better off than when I walked in just a little lighter in the credits. Now Iím getting a slight headache and the only leads are this guy Weaver who said that Oasis is looking for pilots and this Teladi telling me Ēthatssss thisss profitss to be madesssĒ I donít want to work for someone else so; itís the Teladi I guess. Do I dare trust him/her dam I can't tell them apart. I assume it a he for now.

Salazar is your name Right? I may be interested in the ship, but it more credits that I have. Ahh thisssss issss problemssss. If itís not good enough why donít you sell it to the Yard then?

Iím listening whatís the catch? (Thinking I'm getting a ship here possible) I need to see it and I can not go any higher on the price. Thisss ones yousss can. I bought him some more drinks and we bicker about extensions and stuff, he must have had enough when he said deallssss we shalllssss. (I was a bit stunned and tough that this was not that bad of a deal, something got to be wrong here. I know they were though deal makers why should today be any different. We both stumble a bit getting up from the table and head to the docking bay). So Salazar whatís the story on this buster? No storiesssss good shippssss. I gottss itss other dayssss real dealssss .

Profitsssss minessss.(Drops a data disk of ownership in my hand. He walks quickly away) Ok, letís get this ready and get out of here.


I have my Ship and freedom today, but at what cost.

Update to ship purchase.

I should have known better than to trade with a Teladi. I went to leave and the Shipyard and the police show up with a list of fines as long as my arm. Did not registry my ship, did not pay two weeks of bay storage fees, had some kind of infestation on board, tax this fine that. I had to sell all six of my IRAís, two 5 MW shields leaving me one 1 MW. I have enough Credits to buy a duplex scanner and a trading extension and maybe a special command upgrade. Well I guess Iím lucky. They did let me keep the ship, well what left of it. I show proof that I just bought it today. Note to self Salazar will pay someday!!!

Ok itís time get out of here. I think it will be a while before I step foot in this dock again. My onboard computer was wiped clean; Iíll update it at the Equipment dock. Iíll have to manually set Coors to Equipment dock and engage. Docking accepted please land at designated bay. On a side note what should I name her? Well Why not Vortex 1, the 1st ship of my fleet. Wait are they scanning me again I just left the dock give me a break.

Ship update Equipment Dock

I docked and order a Duplex Scanner, Trade Extension and Special Commands Software upgrade. Wish I could upgrade the speed and shields. Also a change of plans are needed. I have to take some chances now that Iím out of funds and donít have the Extensions that I plan on having. I have less than 1/2 cargo hold space and no Reps with the stations. Not having credits to buy anything else. I think Iíll try my hand at being a salvager. When I was at the lounge, there was talk of a lot of pirate attacks over in Elenaís Fortune sector. Where there are Pirates there is stuff adrift. I can make some quick profits selling what I find there as long as itís not me adrift.

Ship update

Iím not leaving this ship anymore than I have to. I miles as well take time to check out the message board, while they install my ships upgrades. Logon to network, here it is the message board lets see whatís available. Nope, reps not good enough, rank defiantly not good. Not enough shields for this one. Oh, ok this looks interesting Dragon Hunter Guild. Iíll have to keep an eye on this one. Log off.

Back to the trade menu, let me see my wish list is Salvage Claim Software, Triplex Scanner, Jumpdrive or maybe the kit so I get the Navigation Command Software, Docking Computer and Mineral Scanner. ďIn coming Message.Ē Their done all ready? Whatís this I got a Trading Station in Gestu Fune Sector yea right? Let me look on Nav mapÖ well there it is. How did this happen? I have never been there much less bought a station? I have to defend it. Well, I guess it will not be mine for long will it. At least I have a nav point to Gestu Fune Sector now. ďIn coming Message.Ē Ok here Iím done off to savage land.

The way to Elenaís Fortune

Personal log

I have to say its different having you own ship and being your own boss. I forgot how much I love food Rations. I have made my way The Wall sector and so far it was uneventful. I saw some Power plants and Cattle ranches on my way to the South gate. Now I am in President End Sector. There is nothing here but the feel of death. A few ships skirt the trade lanes and derby is every where. Hulks of station, Titians and other ship hulls sprawled across the sector lifeless. This place makes me uncomfortable they should clean this place up or rename it for the graveyard it is. The less time I spend here the better it is like a tomb. Hold on here a Pirate Blastcrab has entered the sector, now two Otas Elite. I think Iíll target the crab and keep my distance because they are engaging. Yep, the Elites are pounded it all right. Wait, I see a pilot on my radar rescan the crabs there unclaimed. Where are they going they didnít claim it, auto pilot on let get this one. Ok, I need to be within 30 meters to claim it. Check scanner itís clear for now but, Iím really close to that gate. Letís get this over with, check helmet good, power good. Eject form ship ďDo you really want to eject?Ē Yes I guess so. ďCommand rejectedĒ Dammit Eject ďDo you really want to eject?Ē YES ďCommand confirmed hatch openĒ What am I doing this for Ö 35m got to get closer 29 m. ok, run claim routine. ďAccessing target vessel Ö.. Vessel is derelict access grantedÖÖcontrol of vessel transferred ending program. YES itís mine back to ship. Whatís this doing on?

I left my com on by mistake. I think Iíll leave that in as it was my first crazy act of my new career. Plus It will make for a good laugh when Iím rich tycoon. On that note, I got my 1st scavenged ship, a pirate Blastclaw. Itís has no shields and 43% hull left on it. On the plus side there a weapons none that will work with my Buster. I will sent it to dock at the Equipment Dock at Argon Prime. Iím heading east to Elenaís Fortune gate now.

Com On

Personal log

I enter Elenaís Fortune little while ago. I set nav for center of sector, on my way I passed a light shield station, trading station, two Cahoona Bakery, and a chip plant. All is quite here this may turn out to be a bust. So that is east gate where are the others at? I am mapping out this sector and heading north. There is an asteroids field here, I need a mineral scanner. Wait a moment there a ship on the scanner lets check it out.
