While continuing to rank up with the Empire, I’ve been flying a Lakon Type 9 quite a bit. An exciting moment today where I found myself being pirated and chased right into the station… The station announcer said it is the fastest she’s ever seen a T9 get into the docking bay! I didn’t even need her help to find the slot!
I made quite a bit of money through the trading and courier missions, allowing me to afford both a Type 9 and Class A Vulture simultaneously, so I have been using the Vulture to kill Pirates and smuggle their goods to the Black Market.
Eventually, I got promoted!
Then when I get bored of the combat? Back to the Type 9!
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.
