Tiger and PBG wanted to visit Next Island, so I launched the quad and once aboard summoned them. Warped to Next Island where they disembarked, I waited in Next Island space until they were safely on the planet before warping back (not really sure why I did that).
When leaving Calypso Space Station to return to the surface I was attacked, I thought I was out of range but I was wrong. The quad was destroyed and I was killed, of course they got nothing. I repaired and tried again, there was a different pirate out there so I switched seats and went and did something else. When I came back I was alone so headed to the planet.
