Space Skilling Saturday 87 (Lost in space)

Lets face it, it was only a matter of time before I used that title.

Location:- Galactica Memorial.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads at the Memorial

The effort earlier of travelling from Rocktropia resulted in nothing, the person we were hoping to recruit to the crew was not on line at 1800 so we left.

I asked Wolta to Warp us to Galactica Memorial, which after being provided with the way point she did, unfortunately we came out of warp at the wrong z by a very long way and from leaving the station it took a full 30 minutes before we engaged the Cosmic Horrors.

During Wolta’s session I was called to the guns 3 times and 3 times I returned to Engineering with crap, we were however busy down there so Wolta was taking plenty of damage.

I took the second session, I found the skills to be quite good but the Cosmic Horrors were thinly spaced and it took quite a while to get a lot of them close enough together to take to a gun and end their existence, again 3 visits again all poor. Our new recruit did log in and promptly realised she had worked the time out wrong, I hope to have her aboard for next week.

Nocturaline took the last session she gained a Hit Point and a level in Captain, so a good session for her. My first visit to the guns gave me the best loot of the day (about 9 PED), the 3 subsequent visits were all poor.

After her session Nocturaline took us to Monria at Sub-Warp before we all disembarked.

The order in which we pilot seems to have become well established, I think it may be time to mix it up a bit.

Hunting loss for the night was 139 PED with a return of 52%, another poor show by the Cosmic Horrors.

Space Skilling Saturday 73 (A late siesta for the ladies).

Location:- Galactica Memorial.
Time:- 1145 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline, Phil and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads no siesta today

A much earlier start than is usual, my fault, my daughter plans to visit in the evening and I have not seen her in too long. So yesterday I rearranged Space Skilling Saturday with Wolta and Nocturaline, the alternative was for me to miss it altogether.

With Wolta at the helm we left Monria and headed to the nearest zone (Galactica Memorial), the first mob was encountered at 1206 so that’s when Wolta’s hour began. At the beginning there were very few mobs available as was evident by the lack of damage noticed in Engineering, none of us needed to use our RK-20s. After about 20 minutes things improved, Wolta reported she had increased he z coordinate (Galactica Memorial is somewhat higher than other areas). During Wolta’s command I visited the turrets 3 times, loot was some what lacking but I did notice the mob levels were quite high with a couple of alpha Cosmic Horrors in the mix. At the end of her session Wolta reported that she had gained about 5% in Captain and had finished her wine, I was not sure if she meant glass, bottle, crate or vat.

Nocturaline took the helm next, clearly she found many more Horrors as the damage being taken was considerable and at times we struggled in engineering to maintain the ships integrity. In the first of four visits to a turret we managed a 72PED global and during the second visit a couple of loots in access of 20PED, I was optimistic of profit but that turned out to be foolish. Nocturaline reported a gain of about 6% in Captain, with the additional Horrors and damage taken that is no surprise.

I took the final session, I found it quite had to find more Horrors after the initial few and wasted some time looking for them but it turned out OK in the end. I had 3 visits to the turrets, the second of which was quite difficult as I had collected quite a large stack. Little loot was taken during my hour. It looks like I managed about 7% in Captain but that seems improbable I may have made an error here.

At the end of my session I headed to Rocktropia Space Station at sub-warp, a journey of about 40-45 minutes, while I did so the ladies had their much needed siesta. I saw no other active vessel during the journey.


A big thank you to both Wolta and Nocturaline for rearranging their weekends so that I can see my daughter.
