Chasing my tail

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

There are some bookmarks for a simple constellation waiting for me as I come on-line, but how fresh are they? Warping to empty space where a wormhole should be says 'not very fresh, Penny', so I have some scanning to do. I start by scanning our current static wormhole, hoping ...

Dullness in scanning

Sunday, January 6th, 2013

Fin's here, as is another new signature. The home system today holds a K162 wormhole from class 5 w-space, so I separate from my glorious leader to see what trouble I can find for the pair of us. Not much, at least not from the other side of the wormhole. ...

Scanning through rude space

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

All looks quiet. And it is. Or, without wanting to repeat myself, it looks quiet. All I can say for now is that there are no obvious ships in the home system. Only after I launch probes and take a more careful look around am I actually convinced the home ...

Watching Sleepers rattle a snake

Monday, May 7th, 2012

All alone in space again, so sad. It's just me and my gas. Hey, maybe that's why I'm alone. I need to get rid of the gas! Damn, I think I'm suffering from space madness, so enough of the high jinks and on to exploring the w-space constellation for today. ...

Changeable conditions

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

A corporation fleet is in our neighbouring w-space system shooting Sleepers. I could join them, if I were feeling sociable, or I could scout for the safety of the fleet, which suits me better. My choice is helped in that a Buzzard has been detected by the fleet in the ...

Mangling a Manticore

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

Whilst I've been watching what may well be a cardboard cut-out of a Bestower there has been some activity behind me. The class 2 w-space system I scanned my through to get to this boring class 3 system has woken up, glorious leader Fin following in behind me in her ...

Continuing where we left off

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

The fleet and its bait are gone. Fin supposes a new wormhole has entered in to our neighbouring system, catching us by surprise. This is why Fin's the brains of the operation, I was just singing happy tunes in my head. Now that I can again come out of the ...

Finishing what others start

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Everyone's here already, but I'm told our neighbouring system is boring. The class 3 w-space system has four anomalies, one ladar gas harvesting site, and a static exit to low-sec empire space. There is a tower, too, but no activity. Sounds okay to me, we can make some iskies to ...

Three little ducks

Friday, November 12th, 2010

I'm stirred by an alert. A colleague reports battlecruisers in the class 3 w-space system, two jumps from our own. A Cyclone and three Drakes are spotted by a pilot returning from empire space in a hauler, the combat ships sharing a directional scanner reading with some Sleeper wrecks. My ...

Disturbing a Drake

Monday, April 26th, 2010

A potential target presents itself early. An ally is guided out of our system back to empire space by a colleague, and on the way out he spies a Helios on a wormhole. As usual, I jump in to my Onyx heavy interdictor, and Fin accompanies me in ...
