After my recent exertions, I set course for the Caldari Navy Assembly Plant with the intention of using my recently acquired funds to updgrade my vessel a tad. The Ibis was fast but technologically poor and inflexible. The Salesman presented me with several options, The Condor with it's high speed and sleek shape, the Griffin with it's myriad technological advancements and flexibility and the Bantam with it's respectable cargo space and mining ability but there was one that caught my eye; The Heron.
The ship was sleek, fast, beautiful. It looked like nothing else I have ever seen. The dual wing rises gracefully from it's fuselage. Without realising it I was handing my Kreditkard to the suited Deteis standing expectantly. Within fifteen minutes the ship was mine and was quickly transferred to my hangar.Please visit your user settings to re-enable images.
I christened the ship the Kokiri'sya
, after my home city.
The Heron is significantly larger then the Ibis, I was more than comfortable in piloting the Ibis by myself but since the purchase of the Heron I am seeing I might require a few more brains to keep the ship running smoothly.
I headed down to the local employment agency, FastJob, and told them I required a competent engineer to oversee the ships maintenance and control the power supply to make sure I am runnign at maximum efficency as well as a mechanic to ensure everything stays together. Several hours later, there was a knock at my door, a large Civire male and a rather stiking blonde Deteis female entered my office.
"Mr Sakami" the female said as she walked in. "I am Heleya Irikosja, recent graduate of the School of Applied Knowledge, Starship Systems Studies. Here are my certifications"
She handed me a document containing a rather impressive set of grades.
"I see." I curtly replied
"This is my compatriot Kashin Jolskfard, a talented mechanic and an expert at keeping things from breaking apart. We are here to apply for a position on your vessel."
I smiled and nodded.
"You understand Ms Iri . . . kos . . ja" My Achuran tongue labouring over the complex Deteis pronunciation. "That crewing my vessel will bring with it great risks, I currently work as an operative for the State in rather sensitive areas. We will run the risk of being destroyed" I said.
The two of them nodded, the Civire had been oddly silent throughout.
"We understand that Mr Sakami" He suddenly spoke in a gruff Civire accent. "But it is every mechanics dream to crew a starship, to see the galaxy, to visit strange new places. I would risk death for such an opportunity"
The female nodded her assent
"We understand the risks are high, but so is the potential for profit."
"You are astute Miss. Very well, you are hired. Report to docking bay 37b at 0700 tommorow. I expect you to be dressed immaculately. We have a mission that has come from the higher echelons of the Caldari Navy. Dismissed"
The two saluted and spoke in unison "Yes Captain" before turning and leaving.
Once they left I let my authoritative frown change to a smile.
"I could get used to this" I said to myself and I reached for the Whiskey.
