The Early Years part 2.
After my departure from Fed. space i decided to take up the independent run again in the Kalak system. How did i know of such a system if I was in Fed. space before, well that's simple; its was caused my leaving of the Fed. system. Not Kalak specifically, but the talk of not staying in Fed. space forever. See, the guys I was with were as die hard as die hard Federation people get. They did not like any governing body not aligned with the Federation and well frankly I didn't like the Federation. Wasn't to keen on the Alliance or Empire based on what the Federation schools had taught but I wanted to experience for myself and make up my own mind. But the Federation doesn't like people with their own opinions, they want to tell you what ah when to do something and how and how not to think and that just didn't ever really sit with me. I had been given a few missions by the guys to go solo on a few lenghy hauls ,after the purchase of my MK3, to systems outside Fed. space to learn of how savage the outside was. their words not mine. This is also where I learned to them I was expendable. The missions hey sent me on got more and more lucrative, but were illegal; that's right, they had me doing smuggling runs. I think they were hoping I'd get caught and that would be the end of me, and I almost did a few times, but I am way to smart for that. Not only did I run their missions but I was taking other missions while outside there scope to further increase my "holdings" in light of just such an occasion as relocating or even being caught. Kalak was special to me because that is where my stash was at. Using an alias i created I bought a small, modest home in the Nobel Terminal and under the name Alfred"Al" Noguya, keep all my earnings from outside jobs there. The only problem was, thanks to my recent acquaintances, my Mk3 was now marked. all Federation security services and a few outside security forces knew my ship as a smuggler. This is where I introduce the"SS Pinball" my Asp Explorer that I still have to this day. After selling my MK3 a \nd purchasing the AspX, I signed on with Sirius Corp. and began running Legal Cargo from station to station, port to port and there was not limit on distance with this baby. Sometime in late 3302 I met a group of Utopians and befriended them and soon after left Sirius for Utopia. Did I believe in Utopia, not at all, just wanted to be where people wanted my company and most all the Sirius pilots are lone truckers. Still own the home in Kalak though, just in case. Once in Utopian space I help my new friends start the Lidpar Order Academy. A place where any and all pilots no matter what allegiance could come and train and hone their combat skills. After the formation of the LOA, I split my time between teaching at the academy and running border defense missions in my newly acquired Diamondback Scout. After several months in Utopia I was approached and offered a voice on the council. Why not I thought. I am not a politician and that's why I belong there, because I have no agenda.
