"Look, buddy, I don't mean to make any trouble - I just got here... your friend Molly here was just showing me some courtesy, nothing else happened... I--"

"Excuse me son, what's your name?" Asks a peculiar looking man who seemed to have been right behind Jacob the whole time. Joe had already taken the fear out of Jacob, so he just turned around and said "Who wants to know?"

"That's classified... for now. You have to come with me, I have a very enticing business offer for someone of your... qualifications--"
"Yeah, well save your offer, I'm thinking of freelancing anyway!" Jacob spat back, about to take Molly and Joe somewhere else, when the man grabbed him by the shoulder.

"I don't think you understand, YOU MUST COME WITH ME NOW." The man seemed to be on his last nerve, and Jacob didn't have to tweak many of them. He was unarmed, thanks to Joe, so he did the only thing he could think of...

"Alright, if that's the way it's gonna-- BE!!!" He slugged the bastard in the nose and ran off down the alleyway, gesturing for Molly and Joe to follow suit. They seemed to get the picture, and picked up the pace. "I thought I was done with running for the time being... *huff*" Joe said wryly as the agent fell further and further behind them.

"Who was that guy anyway? Another employer?" Molly asked. "Not one I have any knowledge of... he seemed to be dressed like some sorta private eye... maybe he was sent my my corporation???" Jacob wondered.

After a lot of running, the three of them stopped to rest, Jacob sitting on an Hydro Box, with Molly and Joe leaning on the wall opposite.

"That was a real rush, huh Jacob? Bet you don't--!" Joe asked Jacob before realizing he wasn't there anymore. He spotted a silhouette of a large man dragging a panicking man behind him down the alley.

"HELP!!! MOLLY, JOE, SOMEBODY!!!" Jacob shouted as he disappears around the corner.

Rosemary groaned. Something had broke her fall, but she was still sore all over. It was dark really dark and Rosemary couldn't see the sky. She looked up throws the high buildings wondering how she would get back up there. She knew she wouldn't make it to work on time today. What a dump she sighed propping up a shoulder and looking at her new surroundings. She felt grateful she didn't grow up there. Suddenly she heard muffled shouts coming from the other end of the alley. She struggled to sit up, she recognized the sound as cries for help. With a limp she crawled throws the cries taking the revolver from her back pocket. With much effort she aimed it throws a large man. She took a deep breath and shot reapeatedly at the figure until it fell. Hands and body trembling Rosemary called out, " you alright?"

"Yeah, I think so..." Jacob stood up tentatively, looking about just in case another goon was on his way.

Jacob noticed the lady's gun and shivered in a panic. "L-l-look, what are you--"

"The name's Rosemary, you can call me Rosie, and I think I just saved your skin! Pleasure to meet you."

"I would say the same, but you just killed a man in front of me! Are you insane, I mean I wanted help but--!"

The man stirred on the ground, through the bullet holes in his coat Jacob saw the shimmer of armor.

"You know what? Thanks a ton! Let's get out of here!!!" Jacob told Rosie, then grabbed her by the wrist to lead her and then ran off down the alleyway, but not before kicking the agent in the back of the head to buy them more time.

"WAIT A TICK!" Rosie yelled back at Jacob "There's something in his pocket... glowing!"

Jacob ran back, kneeled down and searched the fink's pocket, pulling out an industrial glass vial containing a glowing red serum; the bottle also had a syringe attached to it. Some type of drug... but what kind?

"Good eye, now let's get a move on!" Jacob said, but before leaving, remembering he left his gun back down the alley, swiped the agent's revolver; a Webley Mark VI.

"Alright, I think that's enough, let's go!!! The cops could get here at any moment!"

Right, Jacob thought, it's time to beat it. Jacob ran with this Rosie character back down the street, encountering Joe and Molly at the next block. ("Only two hours in another universe and I've already made three friends? Must be a lucky night...") After making some brief introductions, Jacob asked "Rosie, do you know a place the three of us could hide out for the time being?"

Rosemary nodded to them all still stirred up about everything. "My brother Dawn and I moved here from Terra back a few years ago just to see what it's like. We're still staying here for the times being and we have a flat up in sector three." She thought about her brother Dawn, he would be mad at her for skipping her job as they needed the money and weary of strangers from the lower sectors coming into there home. She hoped she could talk him into it.

"I think he'll let you guys stay in it, if you don't steal things or stuff like that. I take it none of you are local's huh?" She laughed a little tucking her gun away, before stopping, it hurt her a lot to laugh. Probably cracked a few ribs, she figured. "Are you guys wanted or something cause-" But Rosemary couldn't finish her sentence when she heard the shouts and bangs. A gang fight she knew, she'd heard of them before on the news, those who got caught in the crossfire almost always died.

"Aw shoot! Look guys I hate to make us all run again but it sounds like a gang, follow me." Rosemary said in a loud whisper climbing up a fire escape and waiting for the rest to follow.

Atop an adjacent overhang, a shadowy figure watched from afar. The figure said nothing while the group of 'foreigners' moved through the streets, one of them moving up a fire escape.

The figure stared through a pair of high-powered binoculars, before grabbing a their radio. "I've got five foreigners, I don't know how they got here, how should I proceed?" They said in their native language.

The radio chirped it's response, and the lone man nodded before he moved back into the shadows, not long before an unmarked black car pulled out from a side road, slowly creeping towards the group of people.

A spotlight from the car suddenly illuminated them, and a voice cracked from nowhere .

"Teishi! Ugoku na!"

Molly and Joe were overwhelmed by the sudden activity, when they had only just found each other. The newcomer Rosie beckoned for them to climb up the fire escape and they did so without question. Molly and Jacob went first, and Joe brought up the back. When suddenly a car brought up a bright spotlight on them, and someone shouted at them in a foreign language. Joe beckoned for them all to come back down, and put his hands up, assuming that's what they wanted them to do. The others followed suit. Molly walked over to Joe, and they held hands. Joe squeezed her hand, and Molly squeezed his. Molly took a deep breath and shouted out. "Hello! We don't mean any harm! We're merely travelers! Who are you and what do you want from us?!" She let go a breath, hoping she hadn't messed up anything. Joe put his arm around her in a supportive way, and she relaxed.

Several large ships cut through the darkness of space to arrive near Niihama. The ships, numbering at around ten, began a slow creep towards the planet. It seemed they were wary of the planet's military and defenses in the area, or maybe they weren't paying much attention, or maybe the ship was making a delivery but was no rush.

Each ship was at least a few thousand kilometers long and nearly a thousand wide. Whatever these ships carried they were large, or in large quantities. The ships were heavily armed with several different kinds of weapons, whoever built or modified the ships had made sure they were prepared for anything the ships could encounter while travelling.

The ships bore no emblems, or flags. Nothing to show who they were, who's side they were on, where the ships came from. They could have been pirates, mercenaries, or just alien vessels lost in space. There might not have been life aboard the ships at all.

The Taiyou had been tracking the strange group of ships as they crossed the border into Taiyou space, but they seemed to pay no attention to the ships until they had arrived in Niihama's system.

There was a moment radio silence, but a single transmission crackled through the channel. "Attention unknown ships, Identify yourselves and state your intention immediately, comply with predetermined space lanes, and prepare to be boarded.... Michi no fune ni chūi jibun o tokutei shi, shotei no supēsurēn junshu, tadachini anata no ito o nobete, norikon suru tame no junbi."

The Commander in charge of regulating space lanes waited for a response, but was not going to take any chances. "Nukes in their tubes, get the 3rd Maritime Fleet to intercept and neutralize the enemy ships."

The Taiyou acted swiftly, Military ships parked through the system began to divert course, roughly five thousand combat vessels diverted towards the encroaching fleet. All while massive Wave-force cannons positioned themselves to bear, along with stationary orbital fortresses, enough ordinance was leveled on the strange fleet to obliterate a planet a thousand times over. They were in the Hornet's nest.

"Hadron cannon is powering." A Lieutenant reported, the massive installation's Hadron cannon positioning to bear, while a pair of Yamato class Battleships moved alongside the ships, and several hundred Sudden transports moved in to board.

The ships began to ready their weapons, waiting for the order to attack. They weren't there for anything but a fight, possibly to the death of themselves and their enemy. "Open channels to the enemy and to others in the fleet." The apparent commander of the small fleet ordered.

"We can't comply with your orders, they're counter to our goals here." The commander said, "We're on orders from one Lochlyn Haley to kill, destroy and just antagonize you in general. Please, kindly go fuck yourself and prepare to die." The commander said, his words making it obvious that he was probably one of the mercenaries, not one of Lochlyn's loyal followers.

"Fire." The mercenary commander ordered, keeping the channels open so that the Taiyou could listen in. The ships all began to accelerate, opening firing off nearly forty large torpedoes at the larger ships and the planet's surface.

They soon began to open fire with their other weapons. The railguns, the directed energy lasers, plasma beams, energy disruptors. They were making it clear that this wasn't just some skirmish, this was meant to be an all-out war, an assault on the Taiyou and their space.

"Drop the Infiltrators." The mercenary commander ordered, watching as his people attacked. The ships fired off what appeared to be large orbs at the planet. They were big enough to hold at least ten people in each. There seemed to be hundreds being fired, maybe about a thousand.

A quick scan would show that they carried life aboard them, but the chances of stopping them all, from stopping every enemy from getting behind enemies lines would seem futile. That was the point, they were all fired in bulk at the same time to make sure at least half would make it to the surface.

The Ships opened fire, and the Taiyou responded in kind. The Taiyou response fleet formed up in a rough sphere around the strange ships, and began a steady bombardment which likely seemed to cut slap through any shields, conducting the shield energies around the projectiles themselves, and impacting the armor in brilliant explosions.

"Tennoheika! Banzai!" A Ship commander shouted, bearing his Naginata to bear on the encroaching ship, loosing two Anti-ship torpedoes that careened through shields in a brilliant display of energies, before moving to impact the hull, likely tearing it apart in the resulting explosion.

The Infiltrator orbs moved through space, before they were caught in a cloud of nanomachines that orbited the planet, slowing them down as they moved past the defense grid. Point Defense Wave-force cannons finished them off. It seemed Niihama itself was enveloped in some kind of planetary nano-screen, as Torpedoes and infiltrator pods alike lost their kinetic energy, and were subsequently neutralized. What few managed to slip through the screen and into the Atmosphere, were targeted by Niihama's ParaSOL defense grid, a tight-knit network of Anti-Air, Anti-Missile, and Anti-Orbital Solar-cannon arrays. What pods were blown open, would find even miniscule debris were subject to the scintillating array of brilliant yellow beams of light, until there was almost nothing left.

The Hadron Cannon bore aim, before it discharged a thin filament of orange light. This filament seemed to impact harmlessly on the shields, before the ship itself collapsed into a singularity the size of a pea, the subsequent release of energies sending a shockwave powerful enough to destabilize the course of the other vessels, which found themselves under sustained bombardment from the Taiyou Fleet.

Three more brilliant wave-force beams seared through Taiyou formations, likely causing havok on the shields.

The Emperor had already been informed, and General Nagumo had reported to the Taiyou's Central command.

"Bring us to full alert, ParaSOL status?" He said, a Commander reporting. "ParaSOL is neutralizing the pods as they come in, They're so far banging harmlessly against our impenetrable defenses."

The Second shot rang from the Hadron cannon, a thin filament of orange light striking the second ship, before it too likely collapsed into a singularity the size of a pea, detonating in a furious explosion.

More infiltrator pods were caught up in the Nanoscreen, before being neutralized against the ParaSOL defense grid.

All in all the immediate formation of Lochlyn's ships were swarming with Taiyou response forces, leaving nothing to chance, the sheer number of Taiyou assets in the Niihama system more than sufficient to stop anything ten ships could throw.

Despite the explosions every ship was unscathed, their shielding seemed to flicker like a busted light but with an strange orange hue. The Taiyou weren't dealing with rookies, or people who weren't prepared for such fighting. They were dealing with the forces of a man who lived longer than the Taiyou Empire existed, as far as he knew, at least.

To the more experienced or learned of the Taiyou crews they'd probably notice that the ships attacking them weren't using just any one shielding technology. It seemed to be a mix of several, some more familiar than others in how they worked. Others were very alien, new, dangerous.

The shield that really gave the Taiyou's new enemy an advantage was the one flickering orange. Upon contact with the Taiyou weapons it seemed to displace the energy and singularity that would have threatened to utterly destroy a lesser ship. It was in a near constant, yet controlled, state of temporal fluctuation.

Time and space was literally being used a defense, and the men and women on the attacking ships planned to take full advantage of this fact.

The Jupiter Corporation ships fired another round of torpedoes at the Taiyou and Niihama, but these were different from the last batch. Like the shielding, these flicked orange constantly. They used the same exact technology, but weaponized, to attack their enemy.

Upon coming into contact with the Taiyou ships and the planet's defensive grid the torpedoes would likely slip right through with ease. The ships they came into contact with taking massive damage upon contact with their ship's hulls and armor.

The planet itself would be fine, those unlucky enough to be caught in the blasts wouldn't be as fine. They'd be dead, injured, burned.

The Orange shielded torpedoes seemed to cut slap through the ships that tried to stop them, but something caused the Torpedoes themselves to turn off course, veering away from the planet and back towards the oncoming fleet. The Nanomachines also seemed to shift colors, calibrating, recognizing and disseminating the shield type directly to the ships. This caused the Planetary shield to adapt to the shield type to continue stopping what Torpedoes hadn't been altered.

It wasn't long until help had arrived, a pair of ships that looked more alive than mechanical had appeared from nothing, tearing the very fabric of space and time itself. The ships seemed to be made of some kind of wood, and were nearly half the size of the ten invading ships.

The Torpedoes that had turned, were now being guided by an unseen force back to those that launched them, Perhaps these would be more effective than any Taiyou weapons.

The two strange ships behind the ten vessels launched what looked like an elongated wooden arrow, and when they came into contact with the shields, they burst into vines, which spread across the energy of the shields, absorbing it, the many different types of energies being absorbed into the roots of this tree which had grown out the side of one of the ships.

It seemed no matter the type of shields, the energies were being absorbed, and sent to the large ship in a multicolored beam of energy.

In a matter of minutes, the shields would soon collapse on one of the ships, allowing this strange tree like construct to firmly plant it's roots into the hull of the ship, and assume control of all computer systems, turning the one ship against it's comrades.

Two more arrow like projectiles were launched from the second ship towards Niihama, these exploded into a net of vines and tree roots, enveloping torpedoes in the same sapping energy that deprived the ship of it's shields. Deactivating the torpedo, and trapping it in entangled vines.

A message was subsequently transmitted to General Nagumo.

"This is Shipmaster 'Velzzmkt I've received your distress signal, and am interceding. Let us handle these intruders."

The two organic ships spread apart, discharging a trio of wicked torpedo, which seared towards the larger ships. Encased in an energy field of some kind that placed the trio out of phase and past the shields. When they impacted armor, they erupted into vines, and began to burrow into the hull, pumping the ship full of spores and toxins.

The Taiyou Defense grid continued to hold, with a handful of weapons exploding on the surface. The Torpedoes however, had been diverted away from major metropolitan areas, exploding in the countryside with minimal loss of life.

"Are they serious? More power." The mercenary commander ordered, the crew of his ship and the others sending more power to their shielding. The extra power to the shields was enough to keep them in the fight for awhile, but it was the temporal flux shielding that would throw a kink into the plans of the Taiyou and their allies.

Being in a state of temporal flux, the shield began to dissipate the vines that were in contact with the ships. This left chunks of the vines missing, parts breaking off with nothing left to keep them connected, nothing left to keep them attacking their new enemy effectively.

Like the shields, the torpedoes that were also in temporal flux didn't find themselves easily taken over by nanomachines or stopped by the planet's defense grid. The nanomachines themselves would likely be unable to stay on the torpedoes, the constant fluctuation sending the nanomachines to God knows where and keeping them on course through Niihama's defense grid.

The ships continued to fire their weapons at their enemies, aiming more torpedoes at their own being fired back. While their stacked up shielding could defend against their own weapons, they couldn't defend entirely. The weapons were designed to do massive damage, after all.

From the bottom of the ships came what almost looked liked a giant elongated satellite dish with something similar in design to a Tesla coil dead in the middle.

While the ships held their own against the Taiyou and their allies these new weapons took aim on both the planet and the larger enemy ships.

They fired streams of modified anti-proton energy encased in plasma, said plasma keeping the beams heated to high degrees to make sure that once they hit they gave off the right amount of energy to utterly destroy their enemies. Once the beams would come into contact with any shielding, the sheer amount of energy they gave off would likely overload the shields doing enough damage to cripple ships depending on just how resilient their shields were.

Any armor, hulls of ships, buildings and so on that they came into contact with would probably be destroyed in a single blast. The beams releasing enough energy to kill a planet.

The vines had been sacrificed for the good of the entire operation. There was a sudden planar shift within the vines themselves, and the temporal flux of the ships was grounded in a particular point in reality as the vines began to alter the very fabric itself, stabilizing the temporal flux and stripping it's effects from the ships. This allowed new vines to grow from the strange tree like objects, and continue to sap power from the ships.

With the Temporal flux of the ships grounded in reality, and negated, the first of the strange organic ships began to broadcast a similar field throughout the Solar system, stripping the temporal distortions from Torpedoes and Jupiter ships alike.

'Taanz growled as he manipulated the wooden controls of his ship, the other small Matokey shook their heads as the Ships discharged their weapons against them.

The Beam struck the Matokeyan ship, but rather than blow up as expected, it was as if the very energies were being absorbed into the organic hull, absorbed and distributed via massive brightly lit conduits along the side of the ship.

Once the discharge from the Jupiter ships ended, a wicked needle like appendage emerged from the bow of the Matokeyan ship that took the hit.

A supercharged version of the same beam erupted fourth, searing towards the ship that fired it, with twice the supercharged strength that had been used against it. It seemed perhaps, these Matokey were more advanced than they seemed.

The 'Chnzzt held it's own, the flagship of the Matokey fleet, while it's escort the 'Kznn'zz Held it's position, flickering out of view and appearing between the Jupiter ship, the beam, and Niihama, absorbing it's energy and the surrounding Nanomachine cloud.

The 'Kznn'zz emitted it's own wicked needle like appendage, and unleashed a supercharged modified anti-proton energy, but rather than encase it in plasma, it was encased in strangelet matter.

Two alien ships that were likely unlike anything Lochlyn or his men had encountered before. 'Taanz grabbed the comm link, though Taiyou losses had began to mount, perhaps now they would begin to drive the Jupiter ships back.

"We're taking heavy damage. Some of the others are crippled, on their last legs." A bridge officer told the mercenary commander, "Alright, tell the others to unloaded on the enemy ships. We'll pull back and surrender." The mercenary commander said.

"Surrender? Lochlyn wouldn't like that. But... alright, your funeral." The lead ship began to pull pack, the other ships were barely hanging on, unloading everything they had in as many bursts as they could before losing power or forcing more explosions on their ships.

The results of opening fire at the same time with everything was likely more than enough to destroy the new alien ships, while simultaneously doing damage to their own ships due to the extreme discharge of energy.

All the while, the lead ship began to hail the Taiyou fleet. "We surrender." The mercenary leader said calmly, to the dismay of his crew. Surrender was never supposed to be an option.

They hoped he was playing an angle, being a mercenary it was more likely he would be selling them out.

Two light corvettes and a single luxury freighter exited out of an FTL jump above the planet. A signal was immediately sent from the small trio of ships directly to the fleet around the planet and Taiyou space command. "This is SEC group beta, we have a Mr. Sullen with us and are requesting landing clearance and an audience with your leaders to discuss an alliance and to negotiate trade between our two great nations." An officer stated in the comm message.

Luke Sullen was sitting in his personal chambers of his ship as they reached Niihama, It was time he finalized and alliance to keep the Taiyou at bay. He had too much invested in his planetary cluster in Andromida. He knew concessions would have to be made but he also knew a deal with the Taiyou could lead to new doors being opened and possibly a new golden age for the Sullen Confederation.

A large red ship seemed to just materialize in Niihana's orbit. The ship was the size of a corvette or a cruiser, but was easily unlike any ever seen before. A large cannon hung below the main body of the ship, which was sleek and riddled with what could be escape pod ports. The fore of the great ship had a large green gemlike structure set just above the guise of a dragon. On either side of this was a weapons bank, from which emerged the forward guns. The thrust of the ship was provided by four afterburners, each one set in such a way that they would move individually, like the wings of a bird.
The ship had clearly just transported to the area, but it's method was indiscernible. It was just suddenly there, without warning or sound. The ship was maintaining orbit, but other than that, it showed no other reaction nor did it seem to be doing anything.

The ship then turned to a trio of ships nearby that were emitting a signal. It slowly began to drift towards them, like some predator stalking it's prey...

As the massive ship dropped out of orbit the small escort fleet went into red alert not taking any chances with the Ship. A second hail was sent directly to the Taiyou military command. "UNKNOWN SHIP IN YOUR ORBIT CLOSING ON SEC ESCORT SHIPS REQUESTING IMMEDIATE PERMISSION TO LAND THE VIP."

The captain of one of the Corvettes sent out a distress beacon calling for reinforcements. As they powered up both weapons and shields this corvette took position in between the luxury freighter and the large red ship.

Luke Sullen was alarmed as the room turned and eerie red and he was alerted of the developments. "Hail them I want to speak to these fools." Luke spat out. "Your clear sir." An aid mumbled.

"Attention Unknown Vessel This is Luke Sullen, You will cease your approach and change your course or you will feel the full might of the SEC's navy brought down upon you." Luke said sternly. He wasn't messing around today he needed this deal with the Taiyou to go through and one rogue ship wasn't about to ruin his day.

The ship gave no response, but the eyes of the dragon head on the fore of the ship, as well as the gemlike structure, lit up.

A moment later the after burners flared up and the Red ship darted forward and then up, before diving back down at the three ships like a hawk after it's prey. In fact, it could be sworn that as the ship descended, the screech of a hawk could be heard.

The ship would close in without a matter of seconds, revealing enormous speed for the size of it.

On all three ships the crew were left stunned by the speed of the approaching craft. "Full power to the engines!" Was scream on all ships as the three took evasive action. "OPEN FIRE ON THEM THEY HAD THEIR CHANCE!" Luke shouted over the comms to the corvettes.

"Prime Torpedo bays 1 & 2 lock onto their magnetic signature!" One of the corvette captains shouted as the orders were relayed though time would be needed to load the weapons. As Luke gave the open fire order a stream of laser fire from the two corvettes was fired in the direction of the unknown ship.

The ship spun as though it were a fighter, evading the laser fire and continuing it's rush to the three ships. At it's speed it was upon them in a moment, with only just enough time for the lives to flash by.

Then, as quickly as the ship had been moving, it stopped, the four after burners flared out as to catch itself, and the dragon head prow was literally inches from the luxury freighter. The ship ceased, moving no further, nor backing off. It just stopped....

The ships tried to fire their lasers but it they couldn't keep up and then the ship was face to face with Lukes freighter. "Reponse force ETA 6 minutes!" An orderly shouted on a corvette.


On the Freighter Luke Sullen watched the events play out. "All ships hold your fire. I want to talk to the captain." He said and they tried hailing the ship once more. "I see what you want you have my permission to board." Luke said and then turned to the captain of his guard. "Ready your men Captain." Luke said but knew his men were already taking up positions around the ship.

No response came from the vessel for a time. After a moment a hatch opened behind the dragons head and, garbed in what was clearly a military issue space suit, someone traveled the length of the ship before leaping off it and onto the hull of Luke's Freighter. The moment the individual had left the ship, the ship vanished the same as it had appeared, and all the nearby vessels would be rocked back as a sort of shockwave passed over them.

The figure on the hull of the Freighter then pulled out a small device, which quickly unfolded it to a weapon. A moment later, the PA system of the Freighter would begin to emit static before a womans voice popped on. "Sorry about all that, Tia doesn't have a lot of tact. I promise though she wasn't going to hurt anyone. Now I'd like to talk to whoevers in charge but uh.... Let's do it out here yeah. I don't feel comfortable getting into an enclosed space with a bunch of scared men and women with guns, you understand."

The woman was suggesting that the group meet in space. Luke's guard captain looked to him and laugh. "Your not going out there Mr. Sullen. But I will the man said. As he donned his armor and then moved into the outer hatch. Moments before he left weapons in hand what seemed like a shield enveloped the entire ship.

"Electron Stabilization Field Up Captain Richards, Any supernatural attacks against you should be neutralized." An officer said into Richards comm as he opened the air lock and exited onto the hull of the ship. His boots latched onto this ship viva a set of magnets. Though the grip was not as strong as it normally would, a side effect of the ESF field around the ship.

"What do you want? And who are you?" Richards asked through the PA on his suit.

Melanie Storm the woman smiled brightly behind her visor, which appeared to have no face at all. "Directions, and who I am isn't important. Suffice it to say that I have a ship, and I need a place to make port so that I can refuel, rearm, and resupply. I've made six jumps so far and each one has resulted in me being attacked, falling into a solar orbit, or getting stuck in empty space. Needless to say I'm getting tired of it, so if you have some reliable coordinates to a space station or some other port that's open to warships then please share them. Oh and keep in mind you don't want to give me coordinates to a place you don't want damaged. After having just met Tia, I'm sure you can understand exactly why."
