Seeking further employment, the mercenaries sign on with Cpt. Nicole Berger, running her GEN-100T-A “Second Chance” from Terra to its closest neighbor of Alpha C, known as Toliman by the locals. Cpt. Berger and her crew of four have been having problems with pirates while running regular cargo transports for Specialized Engineering.
Shortly after completion of their jump into the Alpha C system, they were fired upon by an unknown vessel. On Robert Starks urging, the Captain surrendered her ship, and allowed the pirates to board, upon which Robert charged right across to the pirate ship, backed up by AC, James, andJohnny providing fire support.
After a short but violent fight, the crew of the pirate ship was slaughtered, though Robert was injured in the process. The operation was a success however, in that despite the pirate pilots attempts to flee, they successfully gained command of the ship, executing the last surviving pirate.
Shortly after, their new ship “I Blame My Mother” plotted a course alongside “Second Chance” towards Alpha C’s main star port.
