A solo kill..

I slumped a little in my captain's chair, tired and bleary-eyed. it had been a long journey, but I was almost at the end of the line. just one more belt, and I was ready to call it a night. I was on the bridge of my hookbill-class frigate "Force Reign". I absently watched the starlines whip past my forward viewscreen, as the "force reign" hurtled through space. then, the retrothrusters activated, the warp drive spooled down, and space snapped back to normal.

destination achieved.

suddenly, a red klaxon, a proximity alarm. I snapped to and checked my starboard port, about 30km away. there it was.

A "comet"-class federation navy frigate. "oh my god", I said, dreams of what the modules on such a ship would bring. it had been a hard road, isk was low. pirating isn't what it once was. I activated my targeting computer, activated my tracking disruptors and my microwarp drive, hoping to close the distance in time to warp scramble the opposing pilot. he, in turn, had been battling a serpentis pirate, and didn't seem to notice me right away. his mistake. I got in range; I activated my warp disruptor, popped the firing pin on my rocket launchers, and fired.

that seemed to get his attention.

He counterattacked. a flight of T2 drones engaged me at close range, warrior 2's if my threat assessment computer had it right, but, to no avail. my shields took damage but held fast. the comet was blaster-fit; I was easily able to keep distance with my mwd, outside the range of his own warp scrambler, if he had one. those missile range rigs I invested in, when I was docked in caldari space were well worth the isk. In my excitement however, I neglected to do the one thing a pirate should always do, when you know you're winning. ask for a ransom. I was so engrossed in winning the fight, I forgot. finally, as my caldari navy rockets found their home, eating through his armor, he exploded in a cloud of dust and debris. feeling merciful, I allowd his pod to escape as I looted his wreck..some t2 drones, some t2 energized plating. both would fetch a nice price at market. it had been a hard road, but tonight was a good night. I scooped loot to cargo, activated drives, and docked at the nearest station. mission accomplished.
