Saw something in the belts I’d never seen today: a Retriever mining barge flying Tech II combat drones. With a jet can, out, of course.

I was out of position, so he had plenty of time to see me coming in on his can. He targeted me early. He wants to fight, eh?

I flipped the can, putting what I could in my hold. He scoops his drones.


Yes, he scooped his drones. But, he’s also flashing red. I dunno, maybe he took from the Ironfleet can.

Doesn’t matter, I pound him.

Just before he pops, he decides to launch his drones again. Nice, that way they aren’t at risk in the explosion.

Also just before he pops, he gets a Merlin warping in for reinforcement. I don’t want to get scrambled and held for further reinforcements, but I’m not all that worried; so I looted up, scooped the Hobgoblin IIs, and made my departure.
