Rocktropia to Calypso Sub-Warp.

Once aboard I log off and contact Lizzy requesting she take the ship to Calypso when she can.

Lizzy later reports that on leaving Rocktropia Space Station she is followed by a friendly quad but that this attacks her, she tried to contact me for assistance as it was not deterred by the Ships SI but to no avail. With only about 25% left in one of the repair points she logs. She logs on again about 30 minutes later only to die in space and revive aboard the ship which she then repairs, while repairing she is PM’d by “VanLot Ernestj Cinzano” who she thinks was the quad pilot but she does not understand the message (her English is not good, especially her written English). She tries to contact me again (I was sleeping) and getting no answer sets out to complete her mission. Again the Quad moves in but this time does not attack. Fearing an attack may come later she holds course for about ten minutes before changing course and increasing z before levelling off. She continues on this course for a further time before changing heading to take the ship to Calypso Space Station and is not troubled again.

I consider myself very fortunate to know Lizzy, she is very loyal and did not want to let me down, a true Sleepyhead. I feel some reward is in order in this instance.

Space Skilling Saturday 224 (At Rocktropia II)

Start Location:- Rocktropia Space Station.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads/2

Nocturaline and Phil have taken shore leave this week so we are somewhat limited. I arrive in plenty of time having travelled to Rocktropia Space Station earlier today in Nocturaline’s Starfinder IX.

Wolta takes us to the Training Grounds, we encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1802.

Wolta’s hour:- Wolta reports plenty of mobs, ironic as there are only two of us. By 1808 Wolta has gained level 22 Captain. Wolta sends her thanks to Nocturaline as there was no cat to hurt her ears this night.
Kills: 12 + 7

Cee’s hour:- Enough Horrors for two people. Skills seemed poor and for the most part so was the loot. Had to assist in Engineering during the second session at the guns and we global on the penultimate Horror of the week.
Kills: 14 + (9+7) + 12

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 61
Balance – Gain of 35 PED
Return – 121%

Next week Space Skilling Saturday will occur in the Calypso system.

Space Skilling Saturday 223 (At Rocktropia I)

Start Location:- Rocktropia Space Station.
Time:- 1745 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads rock Rocktropia

Nocturaline arrives while I am repairing the damage from the journey and Wolta soon after. I forget to buy ammo but it is soon sorted

Wolta takes us to the Training Grounds, we encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1749.

Wolta’s hour:- Poor mob density, +3.37% gain in Captain skill and did not quite reach level 22 Captain.
Kills: 14 + 15

Cee’s hour:- No Horrors to begin with, but that did improve, skills seemed low as did the loot.
Kills: 22 + 16

Nocturaline’s hour:- Low mob density reported early on. A surprisingly good gain in Captain skill of 1.63%
Kills: 23 + 18

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 118
Balance – Loss of 79 PED
Return – 75%

Next week we will remain at Rocktropia. The team name really was a fail!

Sub-Warp, Next Island to Rocktropia

With Space Skilling Saturday being at Rocktropia this week I figured it would work better if the ship was actually there so set off at Sub-Warp. Shortly after leaving I realised the length of the journey would cause me some time issues so I diverted to Howling mine where I remained while I sorted a few things out.

Once done it was onto Rocktropia. I spotted eight Cosmic Horrors as I passed through Rackham’s Nest, an Alpha attacked but was soon left behind. Nothing more happened until I approached Rocktropia Space Station when a hostile took three pot shots at me before giving up and moving on, looks like they were heading to where I came from.

I positioned the ship ready for departure to the Training Grounds and then found I was unable to leave the seat. The issue was resolved by a relog. Once back aboard I repaired the minimal damage caused by the Cosmic Horror Alpha and the hostile.
