Scientific Thugs are a rag-tag group of CMDRs that consist of Bounty Hunters, Vigilantes, Explorers, and Traders. Based at Leonard Nimoy Station orbiting Vulcan LHS 3006; we provide combat assistance at Community Goals, plan trade routes that span the civilized bubble, hunt pirates (player and npc), conduct combat operations in conflict zones, and explore the cosmos in search of mystery and intrigue.
We attempt to maintain good standing with other civilized Commanders. But in the cut-throat Elite universe, one must be prepared to defend their-self if attacked. As such, combat training exercises are offered at Leonard Nimoy to teach new and older CMDRs how to escape when their are outmatched in a fight.
Combat logging is NOT condoned in Scientific Thugs. In fact a reported combat logging pilot earns a kill on sight from all Thugs members. There may even be plans to reward combat logger kills in the future.
We accept CMDRs from any faction with any level of experience, although we do tend to support the Federation and Alliance over Imperial interests.
Scientific Thugs don't have many rules, but here is a list of a few that are in place to keep our faction out of trouble and in good ethical standards:
*NO COMBAT LOGGING
*no slave trade
*only attack CMDRs with bounties >1000 cr or on the KOS list
*no UA bombing without authorization from our command thread
Other than that, do as you please. Feel free to aid other player factions as long as they are not asking you to break the Thugs rules. We also encourage players to assist other players in trouble (under attack, out of fuel, etc.) whether they are a part of our wing or not.
If our numbers grow enough, we hope to begin hosting championships and other events in the spectacular LHS 3006 (Vulcan) system to bring the Xbox community together for more than just community goals. (We do accept PC/Mac players as well, but we will need someone to serve as a PC/Mac primary leader)
