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.
Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present: Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads the 200th snooze
For the 200th SSS so we go to face the Locusta, Wolta warps us away from Arkadia at 1907, the delay being caused by a Cosmic Horror that decided to make a nuisance of its self so I had to kill it, sadly no global so we will have to return to Arkadia after the Locusta, bugger! It seems Kahlan will not be joining us again, at least on a regular basis, there is a new recruit waiting in the wings though.
Wolta’s hour:- It was busy in Engineering, Wolta reports a 4.35% gain on captain skill. Kills 32. I found that I needed more ammo but the webshop wouldn’t let me log in!
Cee’s hour:- I had to TT the loot after the 3rd of 4 session in the turret as I had no money for ammo. During the 4th session we manage a global of 70 PED on a mature? Before each session in a turret I visited Engineering to assist with repairs. Kills 55.
Nocturaline’s hour:- Again it was busy in Engineering. Nocturaline reports a gain of 1.55% on captain skill. Kills 45. After Nocturaline warps us back to Arkadia where a hostile takes a shot at us, by the time I get to a gun he’s long gone, shame.
A loss of 194 PED (I think MA wanted me to lose 200PED to celebrate the 200th SSS), a return of 74%.
Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1756 MA.
Present:- Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads to hot in France!
Wolta’s hour:- Wolta takes us out and we engage the Cosmic Horrors at 1807 at which time her hour begins. A total of 24 kills with the most notable loot being just 3 PED. Between the 1st and 2nd of three visits to the guns both Nocturaline and I suffer a disconnect (not BT related, as far as we know). Between the 2nd and 3rd visit Wolta spots Starfinder XXXI, Nocturaline informs us this is a Nebula Virus vessel, we prepare to defend but no attack was forthcoming.
Cee’s hour:- Some decent loots this hour, 34 kills for 13, 12, 69, 14 and 77 PED, both of globals are from Cosmic Horror Youngs. Kahlan joins between the 1st and 2nd of three visits to the guns.
Nocturlaine’s hour:- A grand total of 50 kills in 3 visits to the guns, the only loot of note was 10 PED during the 1st visit. Nocturaline had to leave the helm during the 1st and 2nd sessions at the guns in order to assist in Engineering. After Nocturaline takes us back to Crystal Palace reporting a gain in Captain of just 2.63%.
A profit this week of 24 PED and a return of 108%.
Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1802 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads expect B.T. issues
I arrive in good time and prepare the ship. Phil can’t make it this evening due to a laptop issue. Wolta takes us out and begins her hour at 1813.
Wolta’s hour; total kills, 21 for a loot of 8 PED.
Cee’s hour; unidentified hostile quad spotted. Kills 30 for 22 PED. A cockup with the timer after the first of two sessions at the guns, neither Nocturaline or I managed to set it running and I had to guess my time. I think I had 5 minute left when I finished but it was not worth the effort. Low skill gains again.
Nocturaline’s hour; total kills 30 with a 67 PED global on a Cosmic Horror Young. Nocturaline had to leave the helm to support engineering during the first of two sessions at the guns.
After, Nocturaline takes us back to Crystal Palace during this journey my broadband connection failed for about 5 minutes.
A loss of 27 PED and a return of 88%, not too bad.
