I received the call while on Next Island, a pickup from Calypso travelling to Rocktropia for an established client.
I stored my stackables and took my quad into the big black. There were no other ships at Next Island so I just headed out and jumped to warp arriving very close to Calypso Space Station docking did not take long. Once my passenger was aboard I left Calypso Space Station behind having spotted no activity and went straight to warp, Rocktropia Space Station showed the same lack of activity.
With my passenger safely away I set course for Next Island, where the rest of the Sleepy Heads were currently sleeping, so as to be ready for them on the morrow.
This return leg was at sub warp, I am trying to run a business here after all. The journey was calculated at about 2 hours so plenty of time for an in flight movie, I powered up the NAS, put my feet up on the console and soon found the display could not see the storage. Nothing works on this ship, I can’t even open the microwave, the Chief Engineer is in for it tomorrow! I rebooted the NAS and once I had confirmed that was working restarted the display, still nothing. I fiddled with it for well over 30 minutes before giving up as there was no longer time to watch a movie. Listened to episode 213 – The Harbour-Master – Part 2 of the the H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast instead. After which I tried as best I could to stave off sleep until the ship docked at Next Island Space Station.
