I'M BACK! Smile

Hello peeps. Thought I would try my hand at this again. Found my notepad the other day, and noticed I still had a fair old chunk of material that I could type up and put on here. Now I just have to hope I can set the game up again.

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


Got it sorted a while ago, but had alot on recently. All of my time is taken up by the Mrs and 4 kids. So don't get much time for this.

50. Sohen Observer

Jumping to Black Hole Sun, I find it's quiet...

...but not for long!

After several Mizura's and several Silkworms, The 1st wave is delt with. With the exception 2 M5's that manage to sneak

past me, and get through the Gate!

I buzz around, scooping up lots of Mozzies, whilst waiting for payment. Then another batch of Xenon show up. So glad the 3 Centaur's and the Rapid Response Cerberous decided to stick around!

Lots of Silkworm Missiles, 4 Escaped Xenon M5's and a promotion to Fighter Chief later and.....

Wooohoooo! lol

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00686_zpsf43e8a0b.jpg

Hmmmm That's going up quick!

After a well earned break, I stop to go through my ships database. In order to go over how far I've come in such a short space of time! I eventually come across this:

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00081a_zps32681903.jpg

Holy Argnu! I completely forgot about that! Time for a trip to Maelstrom methinks!

After a quick stop over in Elysium Of Light for a full load of E-Cells, I jump into Maelstrom, which is surprisingly quiet, for a Pirate Sector. I then head for the co-ordinates I bought. This had better be worth it!

After a few Mizura's.....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00687_zps88ccbd21.jpg

Yeah! Nice to meet you to! Sheesh!

I tell him I have the necessary fuel on board and he promptly beams it over.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00690_zps4a7019c0.jpg

You're welcome. Who are you?"

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00691_zps5d1b5d06.jpg

"What? Are you taking the Mick?"

I decide to call up Milky to bring the Silicon Wafers from my mine, and get him to stop off at the nearest Quantum Tube Fab for the rest. Whilst waiting, I use the time to swat a couple of Pirate Falcons, and a Harrier that had decided to poke their noses into my business. Better not tell Frozen about those Falcon kills! lol

The goods are delivered and I await my reward....

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00693_zps5855f2e9.jpg

Pet? PET?! My hand hovers over the missile launch button on the console, but I stop before hitting it. I still don't know who or what I'm dealing with here!

Next he tells me he needs 5 x Nvidium!

Hmmmmmmmmm. Well, that wont be as easy to get hold of as the last load of stuff! So he is going to have to wait a while for that. So he should to! His attitude stinks! I also notice that my computer has identified him as a Sohen Observer. Ohhh!, so thats who you are? Never heard of them!

I set my computer to scan the database for any known sources of Nvidium that either myself or my ships have come across on our travels. If anything, my explorers are most likly to have found some, if any. As its their job to scan any and all asteroids they find.

In the meatime, I check my credit rating to find I have enough of a stash to buy what I want next. However, after jumping to Family Pride, Cho's Defeat and Family Njy Shipyards, I notice that my rep with the Split is still not high enough!!

DOH!!! Completely forgot that my rep with any particular race effects whats available to me in ALL of their systems. So what a waste of time that was!

Anyway, I stay in Family Njy for a while and do some E-cell runs, before jumping back to Cho's Defeat. Whilst perusing the local ads in the bar here, I find a very interesting note for Military Personel! I quickly get back to my ship and head for Red Light. Whilst undocking, I check my ships computer to find that my Gonar friend has eyeballed what im after...

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00695_zps9b0662f2.jpg

Unfortunately, due to me not being quick enough, by the time I reach the transports destination, and head over to the Military section, all of the personnel have been sold on!

Dammit!

51. A Laid Back Day

I decide to take things easy for a wee while, so I jump to Kingdom End and dock at the Taxi Drivers Guild station, to join up. I hear there is some easy takings here, if you can get the right kind of passenger. I spend 20+k joining fees and add 5 x Basic and 1 x Luxury cabin to my Boron Angel.

As luck would have it, I dont have long to wait before my 1st 2 mugs......errr.....I mean 'Passengers' Smile sign up for a joyride round the universe.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00697_zpsszxcpiom.jpg

Once all the paperwork has been signed in the guild office, I head back to the ship, just in time for the station mechanic to inform me that the modifications to the Angel are complete.

"Mighty fine ship you got there boy!" the small, podgy and rather manky looking mechanic exclaims, as he rubs his dirty hands on a rag.

"Thanks!" I reply, as I head passed him and into the boarding tube.

I settle into the Angels cockpit just as another boarding tube attaches itself to the cargo section of my craft, where the cabins are installed. I see 2 figures enter the tube and approach the ship. 1 Boron and 1 Paranid. Both of them glance in my direction, giving a curtesey nod as they enter the ship. I shrug my shoulders, and turn to the controls. 1st stop of the day, is Queens Space for a refuel. To my surprise both of my passengers contact me through the ships internal communications and decide to disembark here!

"Whatever!"

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00698_zpslhge3gnv.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00699_zpsfrsk6rf1.jpg

Easiest 43k I will probably ever make! lol

Unfortunately, I don't find anymore ads asking for a taxi service, in the surrounding area, so I change my plans again. Once I have stocked up on fuel, I jump to Family Pride, for the next stage of my companies expansion.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00703_zpswwdhzzyz.jpg

A few million credits, 1 x hired Heffalump, 2 x Rastar Refineries, 1 x construction kit and 1 x kitted out Argon Mercury, complete with trained CAG pilot, that I asked to be transferred from my Wheat Complex, and 'TigerInc Raster Complex 1' is up and running! PHEW! lol

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00705_zpsuky5bmkx.jpg

Okay, Okay! So its not the prettiest! I was never very good at organising and construction! As a bonus though, I am promoted to Master Economist! Smile YAY!

As I am in need of a reputation boost with the Split, I decide to call on Sabre Squadron to join me in Family Pride. Hopefully some Xenon/Kha'ak/Pirate bashing will please my new warrior friends. Or at least enough to help me on my way!

"We're on our way boss" Comes Mckenna's response.

Shortly after this, a friend turns up in Family Pride.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00726_zpsdikcolys.jpg

Oh ho! Better not let Frozen know!

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00727_zpsmszuwoij.jpg

Luckily for me however, I'm not the one who delivers the killing blow. Even though I manage to soften him up with a few Silkworm hits. Although the pilot does manage to eject, and I get a 10k reward for handing the criminal into the local authorities.

Whilst I wait for Sabre Squadron to turn up, I decide to replace my lost Octopus racer that Lucifer (RIP) so valiantly flew during the Boron Princess rescue. so I buy the Raider variant of the Jaguar from the local dealer. I decide to name her Xccelarate II in honor of my old ship. Then, as if to put as dent in my day, Betty informs me that 2 of my Universe Explorers have been destroyed!

She sure knows how to cheer someone up!

Thanks Shaun. Smile Its always nice to hear from a reader.

On we go!

51. The Next Stage. Finally!

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00769_zpsvj1ihhne.jpg

Well, well. Looks like my purple friends have decided to leave Ore Belt alone......For once! Time to deliver on my reputation as Buck Rogers CB Smile

Or not in this case!

I exit the East Gate into Teladi Gain and close to Missile range. Only to realise I am out of Silkworm Missiles!! Yet another Stupid Bastu moment! If anything is going to be the cause of my demise, its one too many Stupid Bastu moments!

I consider doing an RSLG manouver, only to see the Kha'ak turn head on towards me! I shrug my shoulders and punch the boost button.

"May as well go down fighting!" I say to myself.

The distance to the cluster rapidly decreases and all too quickly the 'Lazy Geordie' is being pummeled by Kyon Beams! I clench my teeth as the ship begins to shudder, and glance at the shield readout. it quickly starts to drain.

"Just a few more Sezura's!" I say to myself as I set my turrets to attack.

I would've loved to see the Kha'ak's faces as my little Vulcan streaked towards them!

I wonder what's Kha'ak for "WTF?!?!" lol

I pass the cluster and pull up hard on the control stick. just as I hear the warm, fuzzy glow inducing sound of my turrets opening up on my purple friends! I begin to roll the ship. the Kha'ak are now all around me. I then hear those wonderful Pulse Beam Emitters on my ships belly let rip, and a smile creeps across my face. it is quickly wiped off though, as an all mighty jolt shakes the whole ship, and another chunk of the shield gauge dissappears!

A Kha'ak missile!

Now that is just not fair!

A sense of fear begins to seep into my head, but I carry on. However my fears are not realised as my more than capable Vulcan smashes the Kha'ak into oblivion, with only half of my sheilds gone. Although I give thanks to Sonra that it was only a wee sized cluster!

Just after the last Kha'ak goes 'pop!' my Gravidar registers another enemy contact. This time a Pirate Energy Transporter Vulture. I decide to give chase and lock my sensors onto the Pirate.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00780_zps5t9cv8vo.jpg

I close to scanning range, and take a quick peek inside his hold. Just in case he is carrying a nasty surprise or 2!

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00782_zpswg4gcn6e.jpg

Hmmmmmm...Nothing really too dangerous in that hold. So I set my turrets up to attack the Pirate.....TALLY HO!

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00783_zpsiw8e40l7.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00784_zpsmtpmfael.jpg

As soon as my first salvo begins striking his ship, the Pirate Captain contacts me to surrender. Only as per the last time a Pirate surrendered to me, He only drops his cargo, and attempts to run off. He promptly gets a face full of PBE for his cheek!

BOOM! Smile

Although I still pick up the cargo of value he was carrying, with the exception of the Space Weed. Which suffers the same fate as the Pirate! I.E gets turned to space dust!

Job done

I jump back to Family Pride, just in time to see a lone Pirate Kea come through the South Gate. Time for Sabre Squadron to get some target practice in methinks!

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00785_zpsdeplggml.jpg

I move off to a safe distance, and lock my ships cameras onto the Kea, so I can see the melee unfold. The Pirate immediately begins to hound the local traffic at the Gate.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00786_zps9hc0c4er.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00787_zpsi4wan37p.jpg

To my surprise the Split actually respond to this threat...

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00788_zpsfv7rrasj.jpg

Maybe a little exccesive for a lone Kea? But then again, I guess I should've expected as much from the warrior race! I doubt Sabre Squadron will get a look in here, but I tell them to continue their attack run.

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00789_zpsxoee9rbf.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00790_zpsj4hqmmj3.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00791_zpsbwivvpnw.jpg
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00792_zpsduv1cmdl.jpg

As I thought, Sabre Squadron dont even get a shot off in anger, before the Kea is toasted by the Raptor! Although, again, the pilot ejects and I quickly secure him into the cargo hold, before handing him over for another 10k bounty.

Now for the Next stage of my plan...

I contact the hired Mammoth I have sitting in the Shipyard in Argon Prime, and tell the Captain he is dismissed. Much to his annoyance! I then take the short flight to the Family Pride Shipyard and buy myself an Elephant. Complete with upgraded engines and rudders, and the necessary software I need. I name her 'TIBG Mobile HQ'. I'm left with the patry sum of 2.1 million credits in the bank. But she is worth it!

http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll3/MickR042/x3screen00804_zpsdnfj5mjt.jpg

I now have the capacity to jump my fighter fleet anywhere I want. Once I find a crew and get all the other bits and pieces together, that is. Smile
