At Least He Lived

I found god on the corner of First and Amistad,
Where the west was all but won,
All alone, smoking his last cigarette,
I said where've you been,
He said ask anything
The Fray - You Found Me

"Wait what?" my puzzled voice spat out over the comms.

"Unfueled POS in wormhole space, full of ships. Two of them are manned, an Oneiros and a Raven," Nidia shot back, her voice brimming with pride.

"On my way," I said as I keyed Ruerotta into my Manticore's navigational computer.

"I'm heading out too," NOIR. CEO Alekseyev Karrde said as well, followed by a smattering of replies, all positive.

"Ok," Nidia said after a pause, "I'll be waiting at the wormhole entrance, let me know when you're in warp to me,"

"Already there Nidia," I said as I cleared the Ruerotta gate and began to warp to my fleetmate.

"Alright then, I'll go back through and make sure nothing's changed,"

I waited a few minutes as Nidia got back into position and our fleet assembled on the wormhole.

"Wait a minute, they unanchored a gun," Nidia said with a bit of bewilderment, "He's moving to the tower and it's all that's left anchored,"

"Damn good timing then," Aleks said with a chuckle.

"They... OK the tower is down," Nidia stopped for a second and continued, "Go through and warp to Nidia,"

I passed through the wormhole with a minimal sense of distortion. I didn't get sick, so that's a positive. I began my warp and smiled as I came down cloaked and forty kilometers from both enemy ships.

"Primary is that Oneiros, get a point on the Raven," Aleks called clearly as his ship landed.

The Oneiros died fairly quickly, as he was likely unprepared and we switched fire to the Raven quickly. His damage control crews put up a much better fight, but just as he entered structure he ejected and warped away.

"He's... he got out. The raven's empty!" I said as I shut my torpedo launchers down.

"Cease fire on that Raven!" Aleks said with another laugh.

"What've we got here Nidia?"

"Basilisk, Raven, Itty 4, a Raptor, one gun and a large tower,"

"Sweet. Nidia, you get the tower for spotting it," Aleks began, "Use the Itty 4 to scoop it up, the rest of you grab what you want and get home,"

In the end I managed to bring home a tech two fitted and rigged Raptor for my troubles.

Good Day.


  1. Nice scoops!

    I don't understand why they wouldn't just die with the ship?

  2. Probably had implants he didn't want to lose. Sometimes that can get pricey.
