Hey, pilots, this is Flash Wileeson, your “DJ Flash,” reporting on UUNN with a FLASHCast News Update!
This one is from the UUNN Mailbag, submitted by pilot Nimdas.
A few days ago, on 114.5.21, Nimdas was in the middle of a Solrain Military tour of duty but he decided to begin his flight plan with a Conflux hunting mission and some Solrain beacon tuning.
While on his way tuning and fluxing between Sol SDS and Cornea, Nimdas saw a pilot widely known as a pirate, piloting a freighter. Nimdas immediately pursued and opened fire – but he immediately realized his mistake when he was slapped with a temporary bounty. The “infamous pirate” was currently civilian- tagged!
Things went from bad to worse when Nimdas got to Cornea where defending himself against a low-level bounty hunter and a Mk. I defense drone resulted in three Sol-military demerits, and a political rating in the tank. The only positive was that Nimdas, because of his earlier fluxing and beac-tuning, was promoted to Senior Contractor and would be able to upgrade his ship to an Invader.
Nimdas headed to Wake station, docked and purchased the Invader — but as he initiated a system-check suddenly his power systems shut down, leaving him in the dark.
Getting out of his ship with a hand-held emergency light, Nimdas did a walk-around and found the ship was completely equipped all with noob gear. The docking bay bots had failed to transfer his Interceptor gear over. And with his recently-decimated political rating he couldn’t buy what he needed.
Solrain military sources said that the demerits won’t be kept on Nimdas’ permanent pilot record, but he is on his own for recovering his PR and a decent set of equipment.
