A few skirmishes in the LHS 293 region quickly escalated into a full blown war and I found myself jumping in and out of Conflict Zones, fighting on the side of a small Federation faction. War seemed to have found me on this occasion.
The Krait held up well though and I managed not to get us killed... somehow. The closest I came was one occasion when 5-6 ships all surrounded me at once and attacked me, leaving me limping away on 22% hull. Thankfully, the ship has good engines and I have learned when its time to make a run for it.
I’m not sure what `1010` (the ships computer) thinks about all of this fighting. She went quiet for most of the time while we were engaged in the conflict zones the recent skirmish between minor factions. I must admit, I was a little uneasy about getting involved. But now we are back to fighting pirates – the real bad guys, and once again 1010 has returned to her `normal` self - adding her own sound effects of laser fire and explosions as we engage and destroy ship after ship.
