Pratchett's Disc, HIP 74290 system
Repairs to the Dolphin were extensive, requiring almost a million credits for all of the various component level repairs. Thankful Phillip was raised a nomadic survivor, and always looked for ways to improve the odds in his favor. Towards that end Phillip pirated the pirates; knowing the information of private accounts, and secret stashes. One such account would prove of use; towards payment of the needed repairs.
Towards maintenance of appearances, Phillip took a route which kept him in view, of as many internal security cameras as possible; intent to been seen visiting the stations passenger lounge. Here he checked in with various travel brokers for information on those seeking destinations inside the denser inhabited systems; better to aid in his safe departure and eventual disappearance.

A grouping of half frozen pirates had been found, with the majority having sustained injury, with a few mortalities. Upon interrogation of those under medical medications, a few recounted the tale of what had happened. This coincided with their knowledge of the crashed Asp ship, and the Pratchett’s Disc security chiefs messages, though the personnel count from those reports were incorrect. There should be two individuals, and two animals in the number. The security chief mentioned only one individual, who was a person unknown to them. Upon further questioning the person was unknown to these pirates, yet his story was they had hijacked both him and his ship, and their story was he was an unknown who appeared from the woodline, chasing the others, and entering the ship as the hatch was closing.
The Pratchett’s Disc security chief was sifting through various reports, when an urgent message was received from the military group commander, in the Swoilz AW-C d125 system.
