A Pick-Up, There and back again

Whilst on Rocktropia, I receive a PM from a Crew Member (Henry) asking how far it is to Rocktropia, when told he was somewhat disappointed and asked if I could take him and how much it would cost. I explained I was already there and that 2 warp jumps would be required, factored in a 25% discount for Crew, rounded down to the nearest PED and came up with 26PED, Henry was happy with this so Wolta and I quickly stored the various loot we has acquired and headed skyward.

The warp to Calypso was routine and once there I summoned Henry and an extra crew member to help with repair, Calico. There was a short delay on leaving as Henry was checking to see if anyone wanted to come with him. Another routine warp jump back to Rocktropia.

The trip to the surface was quite eventful; Wolta took Calico in her Sleipnir, whilst I took Henry in a Quad, in order to fly together this involved continually stopping and starting the Quad as it is considerably faster. Consequently I was distracted and we were attacked by another Quad, Henry returned fire whilst I attempted to dodge however once one is on your tail it is quite difficult to shake them and we were destroyed. The quad then went after Wolta and Calico, they were also destroyed. I do not recall the name of the pilot but the triangle was green.

We re-grouped on the Space Station, repaired and set out again, this time without incident.
