Hello commanders, I know its been a few weeks, but I have been very busy. I lost a good friend a few weeks ago.
Believe it or not, if you owe to many credits, and are upto you're eye balls in debt. You will die! There is no cloning for you, I am one of the lucky ones. As I tell many young commanders, make sure you have enough credits for insurance. Because you will need it if you cannot handle a few pirates and get taken out.
Anyway Now The Pimp is part of the stars, he went out in a blaze of glory, one more mission. And he knew he would not be back. It was a fitting end to a true hero of Earth. This man had a heart of gold. Was a shining light in the darkness and shall never be forgotten, his good close friends will always continue his legacy. It was a pleasure being part of his life. His dream was humble, to look after his family, and being a good friend. I will always make sure his family comes first and not last... That was more important to him then anything else.
The Big Pimp, we salute you sir, and I hope you are enjoying yourself, where ever you are now... Enjoy the next big adventure my friend. You deserve it, after all the pain and suffering you went through for so many years.
Not been on in the last couple of days, sorry about that I had no choice...
I am on the run from the Jadimo Blues Boys, they are still not happy with me taking out one of there Elite Lords, as they call themselves. They do like these flashy titles, trouble is I had another one of there leaders come after me, it was a good fight, I do not know why they keep saying that to me, when all they want to do is kill me...
Anyway seems like I made the slip, I know I can handle myself, but sometimes you have to run. It is not worth taking out the whole faction, just to upset the balance in the sector. Sometimes it is actually better to keep the sector as it is for your own interests, if you know what I mean! But you don't know what I mean, because you are back in time.
Ok let me put it this way, having Jadimo as a anarchy system is a good thing, because it sits between to other factions with have in this era. The federation and the empire. We have a nice little buffer here, which is Jadimo, currently run by the Blues Boys. And yes they are blue, they tattoo there faces that colour, which does look a little silly but each to there own! Anyway getting back to why having the anarchy system, because it is really good for a little bounty hunting. Having all those Blues Boys in the middle of two powerful factions, means I can keep scanning all day long. Picking my targets and raking in the bounties. The only trouble with this is the Blues Boys do not like you killing there faction members, so I have been in a little hot water for a while. Why have you all missed me?
I just got a nice little insurance deal on Clip, he is now 1 million credits cheaper to buy again, if I get taken out, which I doubt will ever happen. The great thing about the clipper is speed, and lots of it, explains those dirty great engines on the sides, here is a film I shot of a clipper, so you can see what one looks like. ;)
As you can see it is a nice big ship, with 2 nacelles on either sides. Also you can see what I do for a living, I say living because honestly we do not need to do much in this era. Just try to keep the federation and Empire from going to war, which is not easy. We do have another faction, the alliance, but they tend to keep themselves to themselves. They have a much smaller military presence, in fact they tend to buy ships from both major factions!
Just sometimes when you get out and about, you get to see some nice views, check out this... It will bring a tear to your eye, when you see it!
If you notice that little blue planet, it is your home! And yes it no longer has any ice caps, well it does but they are much smaller now. Human life was lucky to survive, as this really upset the balance of the planet, with so many species of wildlife dying all at once, it made for a sorry sight. So our history books have told us! But the thing is we all know these books can be rewritten to make our species feel better. Imagine what it must have been like to live through all of that!
Right I am going to sign off now, feeling down again after talking about the damage we have done! But in some places we have breathed new life into old worlds, we do now live on Mars also. ;)

What a day it was, bumped into a friend of mine, Commander Jena Cortez. She had just got her new Asp. A nice little ship, I did not want to tell her about the issue, that they just like to spontaneous combust at the first sign of trouble. She is a nice woman, and I really did not want to upset her, with her new ship. I am sure she will find out soon enough.
Luckily we have life insurance in this time frame, it is a weird setup. Even if you die, which I shudder at the thought, if you have the right insurance they can bring you back into existence with this new DNA clone system they have. Lucky for me I have not had to have it completed yet, I have successfully ejected from my old ships, when they have blown up for no reason! ;)
By the way, you do know that I am talking to you from the future right. I know what the date says, but the year here is 3300. I have found a way to write a blog in the past. I cannot tell you about how I do it, otherwise everybody will want to copy me! Let me just say my ship Clip, has had a bit of an off the shelf upgrade, so I can have a bit of fun, and blog in the past.
We do not have any blogging here at all really, because when we fly our ships, everything it recorded via our space suits we have to wear. You cannot get a suit without the recording attachment, even the pirates hate it, the suits just come with it, I suppose it is in case someone decides to go all out and try to kill everyone for no reason. The thing is when you have a lawless galaxy people pay really high prices to watch the feeds of some commanders, going all out and just wrecking someone's day. It is all for a little fun I suppose, knowing that most people have this insurance, so they will be back. I might even try to send some video back for you to watch also, that would be fun, what do you call it Youtube??!?!?! To think I might crash the server uploading my data, well our speeds might be a little out, even writing this on my blog, I have had to downgrade the speed so I could let you into my adventures. I am only uploading at over 1tb per second at the moment. Luckily for me the system at the other end seems to be able to take it.
Had to complete a mission for the Imperials the other day, had to take out Ho Kai-Shek part of some kind of blue boy gang, and let me tell you he was no boy. Turned out to be a bloody Elite Commander!!! Thanks for letting me know that, and the thing with the Imperials, they will not acknowledge that they gave me the mission, oh no, you do not get help like that in future. You just have to get on it yourself, if you get taken out, well you have your insurance. And when you get back out there. Another person looking for your clone, if you are not lucky to escape... Luckily for me, I did take him out, but Clip my ship was a little worse for ware, which was a big shame. The money from the bounty covered the damage luckily. So I made nothing for the kill. Apart from another notch up the ladder to Elite. ;) At the moment I am ranked as Master, which is pretty good! Very happy with that, but one day I will be Elite rank that is for sure.
I am thinking of getting my ship other ship out of storage, for some reason I seem to be able to fight better in my Viper then my clipper, even with the smaller guns, it makes no sense... But I just kill, kill, kill with my Vipp! That is what I called it, you can see what my next ship will be called, if I ever get one. ;) Well a girl has to have some fun right!
Talking about fun, today I think I might just clear out some pirate junkies, they have been giving me hassle, I did warn them, that if the crossed me, Clip and I would pay them a visit and take them out. I do like getting my nasty side on now and again, its fun, gets me in a good mood. ;)
Right gotta go, they have just finished cleaning my ship, I do not know why I let them, they do a shoddy job. My canopy is always smeared really bad. Sometimes, I just want to be able to see out of my ship, without seeing scratches on the screen! You would have thought by now, that the smart people of this time, would be able to produce a decent window cleaner!!! I mean it is bad enough flying around with weapons that can overheat, makes me laugh that they cannot be bothered to test these weapons out in a vacuum first. That is the trouble with the time I am living in, war is everywhere, and things are rushed out, to try and get one up on the other side. Sometimes with disastrous consequences. One of my commander friends was taken out by her own weapons over heating, had no money left and forgot to pay her insurance bills. She was gone for good... You have to watch your credits every day. Trust me people, space is tough, really tough. Some even say its pretty dangerous.
Gotta go my permits up, I will send another blog tomorrow, Commander Kira Ryder signing out...
Honestly, why the hell do I have to do everything around here! I mean, I ask for fuel for my ship, and I am told by the station commander, that I need to go and connect the refuelling system to my ship.
Why because everyone else is busy trying to get the station ready for a important inspection from the top brass! I do not care about top brass, why should Kira Ryder have to knell down to anyone who thinks that they are a top ranking official. To be honest with you, if you are in a ship, and you piss me off, my weapons on my Imperial Clipper will rip you apart, if you cross me.
And then I woke up, decided to play dumb, and connected the dam fuel line to my ship. I do love my ship, I called my ship the penetration, just because it sounded forceful. And what woman does not love a forceful man. ;)
And that is how I look at my ship, a man with a strong will, that will look after me, if only I could change the ships computer to a male voice, oh how cool that would be, I do not have time for men in space, sorry lads. I only have time to explore, and take out the odd pirate while I am flying along minding my own business. If a decent mission comes along, I might take it for the right price. But I tell you something commanders, I will not be brought easily, if the mission looks like its the kind of mission you would rather send a cadet. Then please do not bother me and waste my time. You want to give me how many credits to take 5 tonnes of cargo over to Vaka!!!
I am docked at Vaka at the moment, I just got back from a bit of exploration, now I am waiting for Imperial orders, not that I like the Imperials, I hate them for what they do to people. Turning them into slaves, just so some rich punk can be sit around doing nothing, while others work for them! It is not on. I am here just to get the rank, so I can get those juicy credits, I need quite a lot, the insurance companies are such a rip off, so you need a large amount of credits, to back you up in case the ship decides to blow up. You know that they can just blow anytime, that is why I brought an Imperial ship, they are built to a higher quality then the Federation ships are. Well just look at them, some of them are not even fit for flying!
I would not trust a Sidewinder, even if I got one for free!!! I have seen people given these ships to start a life, just to leave the dock and blow up. They are being held together with space rust, nothing more, you think flying around in a ship that is given to you is fun. Do you ever think why it was given to you in the first place? Because that someone that gave you the ship, more likely wants you dead.
Space is dangerous my friends, so be careful out there, I will get back to you late, gotta go prep my ship for take off.
