Start Location:- Monria Space Station.
Time:- 1813 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads Where are they?
I arrive with time to spare which is just as well as I had not moved the ship, I warped to Monria Space Station and then went to the moon for storage before returning to wait for the crew. At 1800 no one was on-line! I sent a message to Nocturaline and Wolta and waited for a reply. Shortly after Wolta arrived. We begin the sub-warp journey to Galactic Memorial. When Phil arrives, he informs us Nocturaline is delayed a few minute, she arrives just as we enter Galactic Memorial. We encounter the Horrors at 1831, they are of the larger variety.
Wolta’s hour:- Reports very poor density and skill, a gain of 1.28% in Captain skill and that she is very sleepy. Because of this she relinquished the helm about 20 minutes early.
Kills: 8 + 6
Cee’s hour:- Distribution was not too bad, skills seemed high but loot low.
Kills: 13 + 18 + 4
Nocturaline’s hour:- Nocturaline needed to assist in repair and I had to pilot briefly during the first session. Nocturaline reports, mob density was OK and a 1.29% gain in Captain skill. I noticed an improvement in loot.
Kills: 21 + 10
This week’s stats.
Kill total – 80
Balance – Loss of 12 PED
Return – 96%
Next week we will continue testing Monria as an additional location in our circuit. Other than the distance to Galactic Memorial I am happy with it so far.
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.
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.
On the 12th – Once aboard I log and Lizzy begins this long sub-warp transport to Next Island, she is attacked leaving Calypso Space Station but the hostile soon realizes he is wasting his time . We overnight at Erebos Space Station.
On the 13th – Lizzy completes the transport without any incidents. A long and dull journey.
