Imperial Slaves celebrate in D'Arrest Station (Uibuth System).

Elite Journal: Free The Slaves

Since leaving Lave and even during my time within the Empire rising to the rank of King (a meaningless and empty title that didn’t answer any of the questions I had within the Achenar System), I have avoided contact with slavery. I’ve taken a few missions that involved freeing them, but that’s it.

When I saw the emancipation initiative in the Uibuth System, I just had to take part. I had to do my part. It is truly a barbaric anachronism that I hope one day will be eradicated from the galaxy as a whole. The very fact that you can buy and sell slaves by the tonne is wrong. It’s that simple.

Space Gaming Category Information

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.

These days I use gaming to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I also occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch, and rather than doing this to instruct others of the best way to play, I do it because of the social interaction with viewers and other gamers.
