D-day Plus Three

FINALLY! On the forth day of the war a red star showed up in local.

Nice that his name is alphabetically next after mine isn't it?
It was time to put my drilling into action. I hit the warp button and moved into my over-watch position. With my modules heated up and ready to go, I waited. Just as I'd anticipated, a Nemesis dropped out of warp near the station. While drilling the last couple nights and even this evening,  I'd had Aura repeat over and over, "Lock first, lock first, lock first." Reflexively I hit the target lock button on my console.

Crap, he'd dropped out of warp on the other side of the station. It was his lucky day, there was only one gate in system that would have done that and I played the higher odds. Rather than close, he warped off. He made a good decision. He soon disappeared from local but it wasn't for the last time.

I guess he didn't get his business finished because five minutes later he stuck his head back into the system. He didn't come back to the same station. A quick repeating bounce from system gate to system gate failed to find him before he once again left local. 

I waited in my re-assembly area for another 30 minutes. No more red stars showed up in local. It was time to call it a night.

Fly careful.

  1. Again, good luck with all of this.

    Don't miss The Nosy Gamer's lame breakdown of my OP this morning, over there on the right.

Be civil, be responsible and most of all be kind. I will not tolerate poor form. There will be no James Hooks here. We are all better than that.
