Still have some work to do on my Krait for those Thargoids. Also bought an Alliance Challenger. Been told the beast, along with it's little brother the Chieftain, were built mainly to fight Thargoids. Gotta test that beast.
So I went to Kuk to meet with an engineer, Selene Jean they call her. As soon as I arrived at her workshop she pulled a gun in my face and said : « Can't you read the f*cking sign! »
« What sign? » I replied.
She pointed to a table at the entrance. Underneath a pile of pieces was a sign that said « Miners only ». How the hell was I to know there was a sign hiding underneath that pile of garbage?
She then said : « Look babe, I know who you are and what you want and I can assure you there's no one better than me for your armors. But I can't make any exceptions. Gotta prove me you have the skills to get the creds you need. Now get out of my workshop and don't come back 'til you have proof of your skills! »
Man that broad has is something! Hard to say if that turns me on or off.
Whatever… Because of her I spent the next few days mining. Being an explorer I figured that sitting in my ship, alone, for some time wouldn't be that different. But fuck was I worng! Roaming for so long inside those endless asteroid rings has nothing to do with the thrill of discovering new worlds and space anomalies! Just finding asteroids which contains the right minerals is a pain in the ass!
I'll give that though : maneuvering around the asteroids placing seismic charges can be quite fun. But I'd rather do that around Thargoids while shooting them. And the bugs are quite easier to find!
At least those void opals offered a nice payout.
So I am finally done with that! I can now bring my ships to Selene's workshop.
It's gonna be a long time before I go mining again.
