SAR Pilot Log Entry: Scarsan Stripes
We spotted an XL wormhole connection to a quieter J-space system we can move our operation to. Going to start making preparations to do just that!
#temp_private Channel Log (excerpted) :: YC119-Oct-24
[ 19:40:46 ] Mako Koskanaiken > o7
[ 19:40:47 ] Scarsan Stripes > ARE THOSE YOUR PROBES?
[ 19:40:52 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Nope.
[ 19:40:56 ] Scarsan Stripes > Poop. We have an XL wormhole. Can you check the forts? I’m on SOY.
[ 19:42:19 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Sure.
[ 19:43:42 ] Scarsan Stripes > It’s not locals. Too long to scan. I think it’s whoever popped through.
[ 19:48:54 ] Scarsan Stripes > Oh! Haulers?
[ 19:49:46 ] Mako Koskanaiken > I didn’t track where they went, but I think all three of those ships are the locals. I can check to see if they went to the Raitaru, out of d-scan range from here.
[ 19:54:58 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Shall I scout the SOY C5 for our eventual exit?
[ 19:55:34 ] Scarsan Stripes > Sure, I’m still on it and will watch this side for you.
[ 19:55:42 ] Mako Koskanaiken > The haulers are not in the Raitaru, by the way.
[ 19:55:57 ] Scarsan Stripes > Fort is empty?
[ 19:56:14 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Yes, all three are empty.
[ 19:58:09 ] [unidentified] enters channel
[ 19:58:10 ] [unidentified] > Hi.
[ 19:58:13 ] Scarsan Stripes > O///
[ 19:58:22 ] Mako Koskanaiken > o7!
[ 19:58:30 ] Scarsan Stripes > They are in space in haulers, [unidentified]. Three of them.
[ 19:58:46 ] [unidentified] > ?
[ 19:58:51 ] Scarsan Stripes > Locals.
[ 19:59:05 ] [unidentified] > Is there a Lowsec hole or…?
[ 19:59:23 ] Scarsan Stripes > I am on an XL C4 or C5 wormhole. Mako, a Loki just went through.
[ 20:00:06 ] Mako Koskanaiken > I’m going to jump in and see what’s on the other side.
[ 20:01:11 ] Scarsan Stripes > [unidentified], my suggestion is we get out of here if we can, even though it’s still J-space.
[ 20:02:12 ] Scarsan Stripes > Claw on d-scan.
[ 20:02:14 ] Mako Koskanaiken > J113758, nothing on d-scan.
[ 20:02:31 ] [unidentified] > You saw a Loki active?
[ 20:02:37 ] Scarsan Stripes > Yes.
[ 20:02:42 ] [unidentified] > Not sure how I feel about that. Did he warp off or did he cloak?
[ 20:03:25 ] Scarsan Stripes > He went back in the wormhole. Locals are scanning again. Damn. Mako, get back now if you can.
[ 20:03:54 ] [unidentified] > I’ll stay active for a while. Let me know what you can come up with.
[ 20:07:50 ] Mako Koskanaiken > There’s one Astrahaus in here, and no one is in it. Nothing on d-scan. Five sigs, including the hole I just jumped through.
[ 20:15:10 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Drifter Response Battleship on d-scan.
[ 20:15:25 ] Scarsan Stripes > Occator and Helios on this side. [unidentified], thoughts? Wanna go for it?
[ 20:19:57 ] [unidentified] > Ummmmm…this is just to get into another wormhole, ya?
[ 20:20:15 ] Scarsan Stripes > Yes. We’re hoping for a less active system.
[ 20:20:43 ] [unidentified] > It takes me two minutes to warp after I jump through, so if it isn’t clear and they see me at all — even probes — I’m done for.
[ 20:20:51 ] Scarsan Stripes > Well, you’re the boss.
[ 20:21:13 ] [unidentified] > What’s the chance this other system has a low sec hole?
[ 20:21:21 ] Scarsan Stripes > We’re scouting now.
[ 20:22:17 ] Mako Koskanaiken > The two holes in here lead to dangerous space. I haven’t found a spot which is perfectly safe, and there is a Drifter battleship in here.
[ 20:23:18 ] Scarsan Stripes > For now, we just need a spot to log off in there.
[ 20:23:36 ] [unidentified] > Have there not been a lot of XL holes?
[ 20:23:53 ] Scarsan Stripes > The locals roll them ASAP every time!
[ 20:24:37 ] Mako Koskanaiken > KVT hole in here is XL.
[ 20:24:48 ] Scarsan Stripes > We will have eyes on their fort.
[ 20:26:15 ] [unidentified] > Do you have a safe made in the other hole already?
[ 20:27:25 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Yes. But I haven’t seen the Loki anywhere. I’m worried about that guy and the Drifter.
[ 20:28:21 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Drifter is on the hole, just jumped there. He’s perched on your exit hole.
[ 20:28:46 ] Scarsan Stripes > [laughing] Damn drifters.
[ 20:28:49 ] [unidentified] > [laughing nervously] Ya, it will scram me. I don’t have time to warp. Caps are so slow.
[ 20:29:22 ] Scarsan Stripes > [unidentified], are you game to give it a try when the Drifter leaves?
[ 20:29:27 ] [unidentified] > Yes.
[ 20:29:40 ] Scarsan Stripes > Maulus Navy Issue on d-scan.
[ 20:30:17 ] [unidentified] > ?
[ 20:30:24 ] Scarsan Stripes > Locals.
[ 20:30:27 ] [unidentified] > Aww.
[ 20:31:51 ] Scarsan Stripes > Orca too
[ 20:32:13 ] [unidentified] > [laughing] I’m sure they are watching the holes if they have an Orca out. They are going to roll that XL hole with it, I bet.
[ 20:32:29 ] Scarsan Stripes > They’re always watching.
[ 20:32:50 ] Mako Koskanaiken > I’d like to watch a Drifter blow up an Orca.
[ 20:32:59 ] [unidentified] > Hear, hear. [laughter] If we can’t get it out soon, you can watch a carrier blow up.
[ 20:35:14 ] Scarsan Stripes > Nooooooooooooooooo! [laughing] Mako, what’s the Drifter sitch?
[ 20:36:03 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Still parked on the hole.
[ 20:36:54 ] Scarsan Stripes > Try warping to a planet and drop cloak for a sec. See if he takes the bait.
[ 20:37:07 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Alright.
[ 20:39:46 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Hmm, he didn’t take the bait.
[ 20:40:50 ] Scarsan Stripes > Helios splashed to you, Mako.
[ 20:41:45 ] Mako Koskanaiken > He’s going to sh** a brick.
[ 20:50:53 ] Mako Koskanaiken > How far do these Drifters scram? I’m 1100 km off him.
[ 20:51:07 ] Scarsan Stripes > Dunno.
[ 20:55:30 ] Mako Koskanaiken > He is totally disinterested in chasing my stupid little Helios.
[ 20:55:42 ] Scarsan Stripes > [laughing] I can’t believe we are being held up by a Drifter!
[ 21:01:52 ] Mako Koskanaiken > I could try jumping into KVT. That’s the other XL hole in here.
[ 21:02:50 ] Scarsan Stripes > Feel free to scout. I’m still on the exit.
[ 21:03:00 ] Mako Koskanaiken > OK, I won’t be long.
[ 21:07:05 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Next system over is J004128. A ton of sigs. This might be the one we were looking for.
[ 21:07:14 ] Scarsan Stripes > J004128 has a Lowsec static! Shattered, too, so no locals.
[ 21:09:34 ] Mako Koskanaiken > I made a safe. Going back to last system to scout the Drifter.
[ 21:10:11 ] Scarsan Stripes > Make sure wormholes are bookmarked at 0 in corp folder. J004128 is a winner.
[ 21:10:25 ] Mako Koskanaiken > OK.
[ 21:12:17 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Drifter is STILL on the hole. Somebody needs a hobby.
[ 21:16:52 ] [unidentified] > It won’t go away till it’s killed, if it hasn’t at this point.
[ 21:18:31 ] Scarsan Stripes > Seriously! We have access to a Lowsec static.
[ 21:18:51 ] Mako Koskanaiken > It wasn’t on the hole the entire time. I might continue trying the planet uncloaking.
[ 21:23:22 ] [unidentified] > All because of one drifter. [sigh]
[ 21:23:41 ] Scarsan Stripes > Still hope…
[ 21:28:22 ] Mako Koskanaiken > Drifter is GONE.
[ 21:29:00 ] Scarsan Stripes > [unidentified], YOU READY? We can jump straight to the shattered wormhole with the Lowsec static.
[ 21:31:24 ] [unidentified] > Yes, I can be. Give me a few minutes.
[ 21:35:15 ] [unidentified] > OK. We’re ready on this end.
[ 21:36:03 ] Scarsan Stripes > Warp to me.
[ 21:36:19 ] [unidentified] > On my way.
[ 21:36:21 ] [unidentified] > Aligning.
[ 21:36:52 ] [unidentified] > [mutters under breath] Come on, you pig.
[ 21:37:16 ] [unidentified] > In tunnel.
[ 21:38:19 ] [unidentified] > Jumped.
[ 21:38:31 ] [unidentified] > Where to?
[ 21:38:44 ] Scarsan Stripes > One more.
[ 21:38:52 ] [unidentified] > Ya, takes forever to align.
[ 21:39:27 ] [unidentified] > I’m committed. I’m about to be in tunnel.
[ 21:39:32 ] [unidentified] > In tunnel.
[ 21:40:35 ] [unidentified] > I’m jumping in.
[ 21:40:55 ] [unidentified] > Here.
SAR Pilot Log Entry: Scarsan Stripes
We now find ourselves in a C5 shattered wormhole — WITH A LOWSEC STATIC! I realized too late that the Lowsec static is mostly useless to us, as it is a U210, and thus far too small to fit a carrier. But at least we no longer have to worry about locals!
