My home has been held hostage for a number of days now. The Alliance has lost control of some of the old world colonies. CODE, a group who call themselves “pirates”, have effectively blockaded the system and seized control of major stations such as George Lucas in Leesti on behalf of their chosen faction.

Not only that, they randomly waste my damn time by interdicting me for no good reason, then ganging up on me when I’d wanted a fair fight.

Basically, they’re just annoying; like a fly on sh*t, or a malfunctioning Cargo Scoop. But I do have to admit they’re doing a very good job of it. I was even a little impressed when I decoded a communication from them I received about them destroying my ship:

If you find yourself in a fair fight, you haven’t done enough preparation.

They even manage to be annoying when they’re right… haha, but what should I expect out of Pirates? I guess a little part of me was hoping they’d lay down and die so I could take the bounty!

While there is an effort underway to try to push them out of the Lave, Leesti and surrounding systems, it’s probably not something I can take part in. I’m hoping to work together with my brother to find out our family history, and finally put to rest the rumors…

Left: Hires redraw I did of a 'Frontier - Elite II' Eagle ship with Merlin and Aster planets visible.

My first space game addiction was with David Braben's 'Frontier - Elite II' released in 1993 on the Commodore Amiga. This game actually gave me so much of what I wanted in a game that I continued to play it until the 'Elite - Dangerous' release in 2014.

I also played through the 'Wing Commander' series from Chris Roberts, enjoying them immensely. This led directly to my support of his 2012 crowdfunding campaign for the Star Citizen and Squadron 42 games that are still in development.

I use space games to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch.
