Oh dear. IIRC, galleons have all-round BFLAK. Not healthy for an M5. Actually, it can use BKyons too, can't it? Hm. Don't die.

*Puts fingers in ears*

Ahhhhhh spoilers! Lalalalalalalala I can't hear you Wink

45. A Right Royal Rescue part 2.

I quickly decide I need more firepower and so Jump in the "Lazy Geordie"

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00570.jpg

I hold my position well away from the Galleon, and await my Vulcan. Then I recieve a message from someone onboard the Pirate vessel....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00571.jpg

Well. This IS a surprise! I was convinced that I was going to have to attack the Galleon until he surrendered the Princess. Looks like I may just pull this off after all!

I tell Lucifer to go after the Iguana, whilst I hold off the Pirates. Quickly transporting over to the MTS, I launch my Missile program, I then do an RSLG towards the North Gate. I hear the first salvo of Silkworm's speed from their launcher, then watch as the Missiles do a 180 back towards the chasing group of Pirates. Once the Iguana and "Inferno" pass into Elena's Fortune, I also jump there. Just as my Missiles start striking their targets. Thus leaving the Galleon Captain and his possy rather angry! Very Happy

I exit the South Gate, and am glad to see the Iguana, and "Inferno" are making good progress towards Fanham's Legend. Not so good though, is this....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00574.jpg

Although he is carrying damage.... I hit the 'launch' button several times.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00575.jpg

The Falcon is obliterated. However, it looks like the Pirate leader has signalled for assistance in pursuit of the Princess, in the form of a Pirate Marauder! Meh. No matter, the Iguana is well on it's way, and there is enough space between me and it. So I lob several Silkworm's off in the Marauder's direction........Just to say hello! Wink

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00577.jpg

With one eye on the marauding Marauder, I keep the other one on the escapee's, as they head into Farnham's Legend. Although, quite why they decided to head back into Pirate space was beyond me! Guess Nula Da just wanted to take the fastest route into Boron space.

As soon as the Dicoverer and the Iguana are through the gate, I initiate a jump to join them. However. Whilst Betty informs me of the warm up status, she breaks off to announce that one of my ships in Farnham's Legend is under attack!

Since no one else is in that sector, that means.....

Oh no!!

Just as the ship jumps, I am informed by Captain Bo, that the Pirate Iguana has docked at the Trading Station in Atreus Clouds. That ship is quite fast for a TP class. May have to buy one myself.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/Rescuecomplete.jpg

As my ship exits the gate, I turn to the Gravidar, and survey my surroundings. No Pirates in sight, but no "Inferno" neither! Sad Looks like Lucifer's career with TigerInc is over before it really began.

Shame. Sad

The first casualty of my fledgling empire. Guess it was going to happen sooner or later. As there's no way one can get through life in this universe without losing friends/family etc etc. He won't be the last neither....

Feeling in a somewhat sombre mood, I dock at the Trading Station in Atreus clouds. Thanks to the big hoo-ha surrounding the Boron Princess, I manage to slip through to the bar without anyone noticing me. I order 2 Argon Whiskey's, down one of them, and leave the other on the bar. My mark of respect to Lucifer.

My attention is then turned to the media screens dotted around the bar...

Quote:
******NEWS FLASH*******NEWS FLASH**********

Hello. And Welcome to another special edition of Argon Today.

We have recieved unconfirmed reports that the Boron Princess, Susu Fo, has been rescued from a ruthles band of Pirates. They had intended on selling her into slavery, unless a ransom of 250 million credits was paid.

Incoming information has suggested she was snatched from the Royal Yacht itself, which was disabled in Queens Space.

Although we have not been given information on the exact details of the rescue, sources close to the Boron have told us the Princess was recovered from a large Pirate vessel in Split Fire and taken to Atreus Clouds, where she was reunited with the Royal Family. These sources also state that the rescue was carried out by Boron Pirate 'Nula Da' and a budding Argon Entreprenur by the name of 'Buck Rogers'. Neither of whom, were available for interview today.

We understand that several Pirate vessels were destroyed in the ensuing battle and that 1 allied pilot also lost his life.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of that pilot. Indeed a Hero to the Boron Royal Family, and the Boron people......

Erm, nope. It was'nt the Iguana that killed Lucifer. I sent the Disco to accompany the Princess, who was onboard the Iggy, back to safety. The Iguana made it, but Lucifer did'nt.

Up to you mate.

46.Wooohoooooooooo!!

Returning to my ship, I review the mission logs, and note of the SOB who took down Lucifer.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/Luciferkiller.jpg

If I ever come across that ship, I swear I'll turn the bloody thing to space dust!!! I also check the logs for my kills scored. I note a total of 7 kills. Plus I had my combat rank increased to Instructer.

Yay me.

Not to mention the shiny new Boron Angel I was rewarded with. So I decide my next step is to get her kitted out.

Jumping to Paranid Prime, I buy 2 x 125MJ shield units from the local factory based there. I then jump and dock at the Shore of Infinity Military Shipyard, to claim the Angel, and install the shields. Next, I change to the TP and undock.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00580.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00581.jpg

What a beautiful ship! No wonder the Boron Royal Family use this class of vessel for their Royal Yacht!

I set course for the nearest Equipment Dock in Lucky Planets. Whilst The Autopillock guides us there, I decide now's a good a time as any to christen my new ship. I decide on "TigerInc Taxi's"

Original, I know! But, for what I have in mind for her, it's the perfect name.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00582.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00583.jpg

WHAT?! Bloody typical that is! I'm sure the buggers now wait for me to leave before crawling out of the wood work!

Humph!

Reaching our destination, i instruct the EQ dock staff to 'max out' the Angel. Whilst waiting, I send the "Lazy Geordie" to Cloud Base South West for a Jump Drive Kit. A short time later and "TigerInc Taxi's" is finished being outfitted. So I begin to look for work. Starting at the EQ dock.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00585.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00586.jpg

Oh ho! Seems old Silicon for brains is still up to their old tricks eh? Well, we can't have that! My new Taxi service will have to wait, I have some tin cans with ideas above their stations to take care of!

Jumping to Rolk's Ocean, I turn my attention to the nearest Xenon, and start lobbing Silkworm's at them.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00598.jpg

After a few Mizura's spent Xenon bashing, there is only 1 M left, so I launch a salvo in it/his/her whatever direction. Then low and behold old chips for brains bails!

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00599.jpg

Always wondered how a xenon actually bails? Considering it's just a computer. What does it do? An instant format? Download itself to somekind of media device, then spit it out from some tiny orifice? Very Happy

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00600.jpg

Hmmmmmm not bad. nearly 100k. I call in "The White Cow", to pic up what salavge is scattered around. Mainly a pile of Bofu and several Missiles.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00602.jpg

Holy Argnu!!!!!! I thought they were just a myth! I've actually won the lottery! Albeit just 1.5 million, but it's 1.5 million I didnt have before!

Wooooooooooooohooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

After Milky sells off his hold of salvage, plus the lottery win, I'm left with the healthy sum of 9.7 million.

I'm getting there Laughing

I'll keep the application on file, and see what I can do. Wink

47. Xenon,and Pirates, and Spaceweed. Oh my!

I return to Lucky Planet's. Just in time to be notified by Betty, that the bailed N has docked at the shipyard in Shore Of Infinity. Now some of you may be thinking that I should keep the N, and use it as my replacement racer. But I just don't trust those tin-pot terrors! Even if they have managed to 'somehow' eject from their ships.

So, as I see it, it's only fit for selling.

Before I do though, I notice a few red blips on the Gravidar. My wee metal friends have decided to come out and play revenge of the killer oversized hard drives again! Very Happy They make a beeline for my MTS, so I greet them by launching several explodey things at their optical relays. Or in other words, throw loads of missiles at the metal moron's faces! lol

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00604.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00605.jpg

Once the dust settles, I check my score...

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00606.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00607.jpg

Scratch 1 N and 1 M. Oh, and another 'sold' N. My bail sells for around 12k.

With the metallic muppets sorted out, I jump both "TigerInc Taxi's" and "Lazy Geordie" to Kingdom End. Docking at the Taxi Driver Guild Station, and the Merchants Guild Shipyard, repectively. So that I can look for work.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00608.jpg

Unfortunately, I find nothing suitable. So I jump the MTS to Queens Space, for a refuel. Whilst waiting for my purchased E-Cells to be loaded, I peruse the Bulletin Boards.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00610.jpg

Nerver pass up an opportunity to get one up on autopiloocks for brains! Very Happy Even if it is only for a measly 8k! lol As soon as my passenger embarks, I undock and set Auto to guide the ship to the Ore Mine. Whilst I check the Gravidar.....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00611.jpg

"Here they come!"

Slap bang bewtween me and my destination. lovely! I set sensors on the nearst Xenon and launch a few Silkworms at it. Repeating the process for the others.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00612.jpg

I watch closely, as the Missiles begin to strike their targets. This time though, I don't score any kills. Mainly thinks to my fishy friends, who quickly move in to finish off the Xenon.

Guess I should be greatful!

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00613.jpg

Yeah yeah whatever.

My hunt for more work is interupted by Betty. Who informs me of an encroacher in Teladi Gain. I quickly initiate a jump, and a short time later....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00614.jpg

Ho ho ho! What do we have here? a Pirate Dragon Mk1 transporter no less. I fiddle with a few button, to get a closer look.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00616.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00615.jpg

Hmmmmmmm. I wonder if I could 'encourage' him to vacate his vessel? Very Happy Worth a try? I bet it would make Mckenna happy! lol

"Let's do it"

I lock on to the Dragon, and from about 10-15k, I start throwing Silkworm's in his general direction. A Mizura or 2 later and the explodey things start striking the hull.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00620.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00621.jpg

Several big booms later and the Pirate decides to contact me....

"Ssssstop. Here. Take all I have."

YAY! He's giving me his ship........erm.......Or not? He's still flying it? Eh? A quick check of my Gravidar reveals what he 'surrendered'..........Spaceweed!!! He expects me to let him go by ejecting 8 canisters of bloody spaceweed from his hold?!?! Pppfffffffftt!! I think not! So in my frustration, I smack the launch button several more times. With several unecessary missiles included for good measure! Evil or Very Mad

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00629.jpg

Bad luck on that Dragon! Nice reading though Very Happy

I'd like to sign up one of my characters! Very Happy

Name: Kasamira Nightshade
Gender: Female
Race: Terran

Background: She was one of the youngest captains in the AGI Task force, having a small strike group at her command. She piloted the Wolfslayer, a Vidar class Corvette. The strike group got ambushed by a Xenon gate camper fleet, with her as the only surviving marine. She got picked up by a passing Teladi, who was out salvaging what remained of the hulls of the destroyed ships.
She is currently into mercenary work, hoping to scrape up enough credits to get herself a nice corvette.

As she was promoted to captain so soon, she is inexperienced with any ship smaller than an M6, yet she will fly anything that needs flying to get to those credits.

Characteristics:
Kasamira is smart enough woman, who knows quite a bit about tactics. At first she might seem cold, yet that is probably only due to her calculating everything she sees with hard logic. At the heart she is a nice enough person.

(if you manage to get her a Frigate, it's name would be Deathblossom)

Anything smaller than that will be called Dying Sun


Hope I'll fill some of your needed slots Wink

Hi guys

1st off, sorry for the time I've taken to post the next chapter. Lots going on at the moment. Main 'time killer' has been my new job. Takes up more time than I would like, but I have family to support. So needs must.

Be assured though, I am not looking to give up this DiD! Smile

Aplication duly noted on file.

48.Dodging More Xenon

Speaking of which.....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00630-1.jpg

I'll take the Missiles, but not the drugs thank you! So moving a little closer to the canisters, I let the computer have a little 'target practice' with them. Once operation 'cleanup' is done, I collect the Missiles.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00631-1.jpg

Hmmmmmmmm.............My own sector eh?........Shame I'm no where near having that kind of cash right now. Otherwise I would be putting in a bid.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00632-1.jpg

Those are some big Xenon! I wonder if someone has informed them of my Xenon bashing antics? Very Happy

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00633-1.jpg

Uh oh! I wondered why Betty went nuts for a couple of Sezura's. Looks like even more of my old metal mates want to play again. Only this time, they've decided not to play fair by bringing out some hard hitting hardware.

Time to skidaddle methinks!

I tell Sabre Squadron to bug out of Teladi Gain, incase it gets too hot. Glad I did to as......

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00634-1.jpg

Oh me! Looks like everyone has come out to play today! lol Shame I've decided to RSLG it though. Smile

"Can we not rough up that Pirate group that just showed up?" Asks Frozen.

"Not a chance!" I reply. "Unless you want to end up as PPG food!? I want you lot as far away from this shenanigans as possible! Now move!"

I dock at the Teladi Gain Trading Station, instead of jumping away. To save fuel. Hopefully my scaley friends will sort chips for brains out! Very Happy In the meantime...

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00636-1.jpg

I find the first 2920 at one of the the Solar Power Plants in Profit Share. A quick scoot back to Teladi Gain and.....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00637-1.jpg

Jumping back to Profit Share. I find the remainder at the other SPP based there, then jump back to Teladi Gain and....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00638-1.jpg

Thank you very much. Very Happy

Next job of the day, is to sell the small batch of Missiles I picked up from the Pirate Dragon transporter. Flying to Ceo's Buckzoid, I dock and unload my cargo at the Equipment Dock based there. Then I get back to the task in hand. Making fast money! lol

Unfortunatly for me, I find no suitable jobs this time round. So I decide to go back to the old Sunrise Flower - Nostrop Oil run through Teladi Gain, Seizewell and Grater Profit, for a while anywayz.

Several trade runs later....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00651-1.jpg

Dear sweet Sonra! Does these buggers ever stop? *Sighs* No, I guess not. They're machines. They don't need to stop. Ever!

So it's off to Scale Place Green I go.

Swooping in, I target the nearest mechanical moron, and let loose.

After serveral Mizura's the Teladi contact me.

I'm getting good at this Xenon bashing now! And Milky is getting good at sweeping up after me! lol Checking over my ships computer I tally up my score.

A total of 5 x M4's and 4 X M5's. Might not seem like much to warrent a 1.5 million reward, But I'll take it! Especially since I also had help in the form of a Teladi Orbital Weapons Platform, a Condor, and a Hawk! lol

I also decide to quickly 'take' the loot that was dropped by all those poor Teladi who did'nt survive the encounter with the Metal Morons! I quickly call in Milky, who joyously rubs his hands together over the video feed at the site before him. A whole pile of Missiles, Bofu, and Chelts Meat. Although some more Xenon have since turned up. Albeit a bit late for the party! I tell Milky to back off and let the lizards take care of the Xenon, before continuing with his.... 'clean up' operations! Smile I also decide to hang around SPG for a while. Just to see what turns up.

Whilst hoping from station to station, I manage to get another delivery job, and net 92k from it. As a bonus, the succesful completion of this job gets me promoted to a level 2 Merchant by the guild. Yay me! lol

I get a good start to the following Tazura......

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00663-1.jpg

Makes a change from Xenon bashing!

I call my fighter squadron, who are more than pleased to answer the call. And I jump in, just as they undock from the Trading Station....

Wow, Xenon are being rather pushy now. Would be awful if any of the Sabres got it into their head to try a death star run on one of those battleships while your head's turned. That flak's deadly!

Nice catch on the energy cell shortage, always good when you can sell loads of them massively above normal asking prices.

Oh They wont. Not if they value their lives.......and their wages! Laughing

Thank you

On with the show!

49. Once Again, Another STUPID BASTU! Moment!

As we approach the Pirate group, I notice a squadron of local Teladi security ships had already set themselves upon them!. Nice of my scaley friends to soften up the scum bags for the lads!l lol

I hold back, whilst Sabre Squadron do their stuff. A short time later, and the last Pirate goes.....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00665_zps7296bb0d.jpg

BOOM!

"Scores on the doors please boss" Calls Frozen. "Please tell me I got the Falcons!

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/Sabre6Score_zps4d3a7186.jpg

"Looks like you got your wish Frozen. You got 1 of the Falcons, and a Harrier. Speedy got the other Harrier, and Apollo got the Buster. So 4 out of 5 kills for you guys. Dock back at the Trading Station and I'll catch up with you lot later. Rogers out"

I watch my ships turn in unison, and speed off.

I then turn my attentions back to my little Nosdrop trade run. I get a couple of runs under my belt, then, just as I finish delivering another cargo hold of Oil to the WarDroid Fab in Seizewell, this turns up!

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00671_zpscb9c7469.jpg

Oh buggery!

I instruct the Teladi Traffic Control personel that I am leaving ASAP and my reptillian friends oblige by releasing the docking clamps. I spin the 'Lazy Geordie' as fast as I can, and hit the Boost button. As I am forced back into my pilots chair, I reach for the Navigation console and begin to plot a jump out of the Teladi home sector.

However, to my utter horror, I discover my hold is completly devoid of the necessary E-Cells to initiate said jump!

"STUPID, STUPID BASTU!" I scream! as I punch the console, shorting out a small section, and skinning my knuckles in the process.

"Looks like I'll be doing this the hard way then!"

I turn the ship towards the nearest Gate. Which in this case, was the North Gate, and take a quick look at my Heads-Up-Display, and my Gravidar. Sure enough, 2 Kha'ak M5's have decided to setup camp next to the Gate, and are harrassing anyone who comes near them!

Checking my ships inventory again, I am pleased to notice that I still have a supply of Silkworm Missiles on board!

Phew!

I close to within a dozen or so Kilometres, before I catch both Scouts attention, and they turn towards me.

Their mistake!

A couple of well placed Silkworms soon puts them in their place, and I reach the Gate unscathed. Just before I go through though, Betty gives another shout to inform me....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00673_zps35aef22f.jpg

Oh for Snora's sake! This is getting ridiculous now! Someone needs to cull these buggers, and it may as well be me!

"Note to self."

*Grabs data pad*

*Starts tapping away*

"Declare war on Xenon at best possible opportunity!"

*Nods to self*

In the meantime....

I decide to 'station hop' for a bit, with Sabre Squadron in tow, in order to find what I want. Whilst doing this, I recieve notification of the rout of the Kha'ak invasion of Siezewell, and my rewaard...

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00676_zps4aa1d4f8.jpg

Every little helps as they say. Smile

Continuing the hunt for a certain something, I do a fly-by of this ugly beastie...

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00678_zps27c9d586.jpg

Man those things are uuuuuuuuuuggly! Although I would'nt say that to any Teladi in person! lol

My next 'hop' gets me....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00681_zpsd5a00f68.jpg

Looks like that's going to go for alot higher! Shame. Sad

Nice that you get warning of incoming Kha'ak invasions. Had you not seen that message, things could have gone badly with no ecells...

Hi guys

Just a note to let you know that this is on hold for a wee while. I've just bought a new laptop, and am in the process of transferring all my data. About 250GB worth! Plus I need to find the disc and setup the game again. And with all the scripts I have installed, I'll have all the errors to sort out again. Rest assured though, I hav'nt forgotten about it, and I'll post the next chapter as soon as I can Smile

Thank you for reading

I wondered why the post has been resurrected as you hadn't contributed since July hope you get that data transfer done.

Easiest way is to get a hard drive docking port external and plug it in the time is minimised.
