Having a ship that is made for almost any purpose is a serious upside as I can bring it to any role within mere hours and with an AI that’s sentient i can do almost anything a two person crew could barely do alone. But I’m not writing this to talk about that I’ve finally found out what that yellow line is. When my new COVAS did a detailed scan of the line it told me that it was made out of Guardian technology and was struggling to attack me and was where the transmissions I received were from that ship. I must’ve passed out at that moment as I was woken up by my COVAS yelling at me to wake the hell up and it couldn’t keep control for much longer.I then looked out my canopy and saw a planets surface I realized that we were approaching at almost twice glide speed and it couldn’t slow down without me doing it manually so I slammed the throttle into reverse and pulled flat to get as much drag as possible. It felt like the longest few seconds of my life as I watched the Altimeter go toward the bottom but the ship came to a slow and steady stop at 10 meters above the ground.
“Good work commander” my COVAS said to me
“Thanks but that was to close for comfort” I said with a sigh of relief.
“However we have a contact and it’s deploying hardpoints” my COVAS said with a sense of alarm that a COVAS is not supposed to have
As I hit the deploy hardpoints button the ship that we scanned earlier jumped in and and started helping us defeat the other ship that started attacking us.
“Wait it’s not attacking us” I said as we received another transmission this one not encrypted at all yet sounding inhuman.
“We are not your enemy”
I took this as a fact and just went on with my day as if nothing had happened.
