Well the fine is only 200cr - silly to have so much bother over such a poxy amount!
But... yehar! I have arrived in the Maia system - and after selling my superconductors at Obsidian Orbital, the first mission offered was for over 300k, so I was smiling - especially as it got me to Mona's Hub, along with several other stacked jobs. Now I got a mission or two to Darnielle's Progress, which I would otherwise have had to go scanning for, where I can pick up the meta alloy I need for the engineer. Now also have another two explorer engineers offering their services.
On the way, I passed through a systems with loads of planets, suns etc and scanned the entire system. It took a while - but it got me 980,000cr (scanned others, but this one got me nearly half a million on its own)
During the whole time there, I didn't see a single ship and the place was completely uninhabited. Surely a miner's paradise?
I was also kicking myself for not investigating the large number of USS in that system. They were bound to be interesting, with it being unpopulated, but I had a full hold, so decided against it. Then I get to Maia and am offered a couple of big payout jobs for finding alien materials. Looks like I'll be going back to that system!
I'm currently in 'space' morning, afternoon and evening every day!
