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.
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.
In preparation for tomorrow’s trip I left Next Island and headed at sub-warp to Arkadia. The journey was uneventful with only the Space comms and in flight movie to keep me entertained. The ship is docked at Arkadia in readiness.
I have not done this for a long while I know but decided I would for a change, I had seen first one request for transport from Arkadia to Calypso. The other requests began to appear for various routes and no one was responding.
I warped to Arkadia to make the initial pick-up and delivered the client to Calypso Space Station.
Next was a warp to Rocktropia to pick-up a second client who also needed transport to Calypso.
Final warp was a split cost for two people who needed transport from Calypso to Arkadia, one of these was a logged off transport.
Not the most cost-effective route planning but it was enjoyable and I earned a few PED.
I headed back to Crystal Palace and then onto Calypso Space Station where I went to the surface for a while for multiple reasons including the production of a new Warp Drive and to pick up an old disciple who is as yet to complete this task. We then warped back to Next Island.
I had requests to pick up two of the people I had transported earlier and return them to their starting point but was unable to do this due to previous commitments
