Intrigue Danger and Profit

Personel Log : LostVision - Captain
Deployment : Mira II - Stealth Bomber
Date : 20141409


Word has come in over the Comm of a massive explosion, they think it has something to do with some sort of experiment to force open a wormhole. The fleet I was soaring with a few days ago detected a new wormhole opening up in High Security space to a previously uncharted pocket of wormhole space.

This new system, named 'Thera' by the Sisters of Eve who originally settled in this system  is without a doubt the most ruthless region of space I've set my eyes on. War generally has a certain order to it's chaos, but here everyone seems to be weapons free and firing on anything they can get a lock on.


The Sisters have been in this wormhole for some time it seems, running their experiments with Bob knows what goal in mind but they did see fit to outfit the solar system with a few of their stations around various planets.

The other pilots managed to beat me to the system but they were far from the first ones there, and I arrived just in time to enjoy my first of what would be a few kills this evening.

Shortly after this frigate went down however our fleet had it's own tactic turned around on it when a single rogue stealth bomber hit us with a bomb, plowing through my shields and tearing off a sizable chunk of the plating protecting me from the vacuum of space!


Before too long we had managed to manufacture a few wrecks, and with the interest in ending on a high note we deemed our operation a success, having successfully managed to secure entry and docking rights in this newly discovered Thera system.

I am making long term plans to operate from here for a while given the multiple entrances and exits to places all over the galaxy making its position ideal for hit and run tactics, and covert infiltration behind enemy lines, as well as easy access to multiple regions of space that can help sate my curiosity when exploring.

Until my next opportunity I will be spending some time in station, welding plates back on the Mira II to get it ready to fly for the next operation.

Highway To The Danger Zone

Personnel Log : Lostvision - Captain 
Deployment : Data Spike - SOE Frigate 
Date : 20141204


These pirate sites turn up like a bad penny, and before long we have probed out this old mineral field. This place had nearly been stripped clean before something drove the Sansha out of here.

It was fairly easy to strip apart the old ships and mining platforms left here, it looks like they were running a pretty low cost operation here with just the bare essentials. After tearing apart four different modules I was left with about enough salvage to put together a toddlers tricycle.

Estimated Value: 380,000


I have a suspicion that whatever drove the Sansha out of that mining site I was just at was able to convince them to abandon these storage platforms as well.

The security on these devices made it marginally more difficult to gain access to the materials inside than tearing apart that old salvage was. Before too long the Spike and I were able to bring aboard a stack of decryptors and datacores that appear to have been liberated from some Amarrian convoy.

While I'm sure I won't be given any medals I'm sure the Amarr Ministry of Security would be willing to part with a few ISK to ensure the safe return of their assets, and if they won't play ball I'm sure I can find some entrepreneur to take them off my hands. One man's salvage is another man's bread and butter!

Estimated Value: 2,960,000


Deployment : Mira - Stealth Bomber

I spent the last couple of days putting my Covert Operations training to good use. I accepted a contract from an admittedly shady contact who my brother was familiar with and sat down in a stealth bomber for a nice change of pace.

Stealth operations are a special type of combat. It's a very patient game that relies on biding your time and waiting for the opportune moment to present itself before catching your target unaware. We were separated into two squadrons, I was assigned to the primary strike team: Red Squadron and after monitoring our targets' movements the commander lined up our opportunity to strike at our opponents Capital ships and ordered the strike.

Red Squadron hit the mark but sadly Gold squadron's position had been given away and they were lost before being able to launch their strike.

With my contract fulfilled I stuck around for a couple of days being debriefed by the commander and his team before stepping out of the Mira to go back to probing the depths of the galaxy.

Estimated Cost to Target: 7.69 Billion


That's about all I have in me for one run, I'm docked up for the evening. Hopefully I can find some Wormholes to dive into tomorrow, because while dangerous, they have been providing be with endless opportunities to find rare and expensive salvage.
I've been looking for some people to join in the excitement in wormhole space, maybe group up and take down some of the sleepers who are always buzzing around and see what we can pry from their wrecks, that technology must be worth a fat stack of loot to the right buyer so let me know if you'd be interested in taking a dip into unclaimable territory with me.
Lostvision signing off.

I Stared Long Into the Abyss

Personnel Log : Lostvision - Captain
Deployment : Data Spike - SOE Frigate
Date : 20141202


After spending some time buffering my bank account I decided to risk diving into some unknown space to expand my horizons. Bouncing through Wormholes isn't for the unprepared or faint of heart, so don't let the small hull fool you, I've altered the fit for the Data Spike to pack quite a punch!

The first wormhole I came by was a tough nut to crack and it took me a couple tries to get passed the security on the control tower, but after I figured out the trick these pirates had been using to 'secure' their goods it didn't take me long to clean them all out.


Deep in these wormholes you never really know what might be lurking in the shadows and conspiring against you. That's a lesson these Sansha's thugs appear to have learned the hard way. Bad luck for them but good luck for me.

I imagine some of these guys were able to escape, but the wrecks of the less fortunate ones were packed with some of the most excellent salvage I've ever found. The sleepers may have taken these pirates apart, but I'm taking their booty and I can't help but feel like I ended up with the better end of the bargain.


This system has been quite good to me by handing me two opportunities to pack my cargo hold, at an estimated 83 Million ISK profit I've decided to cruise back to station before diving deeper into this chain of wormholes.

I'll drop this log off and upload it to the net before taking off into the abyss again, it's hard to tell the next time I'll come by an opportunity to communicate with K-Space again.
