Chai gunned the afterburner and micro warpdrive on his Rifter. He was on a tight schedule to meet the rigid demands of his new Federal Navy agent. The pod compensated for the sudden increase in speed with ease and with a speed in excess of 3 clicks per second Chai's ship hit the Gate.

Literally...

The shield bubble surrounding the Painless Paradigm III dented for a second before Chai heard the familiar monotonous voice of his ship's computer "Autopilot Jumping".

Even after countless jumps, Chai always felt a bit queezy and disorientated when entering a new system. The AP usually took care of guiding his ship further, but having entered his destination he idled for a few seconds.

More than enough time to admire the CONCORD Battleship edging nearer, accompanied by a Cruiser of said agency. He entered the coordinates for his station and the powerful Frigate started to align for Warp.

Suddenly threat sirens started blaring. The HUD popped up in Chai's field of vision declaring locks on the Painless.

He uttered a loud curse, comparing pirats with assorted biologic matter and hitting the AB and MWD to get the hell out of Dodge. A blue light surrounded his ship and the trusty Frig stuttered forwards at barely 200 m/s. Chai desperately hoped his ship aligned before the first hits would eat away his shield.

Alignment came, warping however, did not.

A neocom channel was opened to Chai’s ship and the chubby face belonging to some Gallante male fouled the screen.

“Ease up sonny, and power down your ship,” the view panned out showing not only the chubby face, but a round belly as well. The large ‘star’ icon of CONCORD took a moment to register.

Chai tried swallowing his anger while he noticed the mission’s time whittling away precious second between a normal deliver and a grand bonus. His anger won out, “What the *beep* are you trying to pull here. I aint no stinking rat, I on official Federal Navy business here!”

The CONCORD officer stared back at him calmly. “Now take it easy sonny, you won’t like me to add ‘insulting an officer of the law’ to your troubles, now do you?”

“I broke no law… sir” the last bit was practically spit into the neocom. The officer just started back blankly, hoping for the insult that did not come. Obviously it the ball was still in Chai’s court. He sighed, “Okay officer, what is it that I supposedly did.

No sooner was the question asked or various CONCORD ordnances flashed over his HUD, red sections were highlighted, sections that before now has just seemed like noise to a bad transmission. The officer started chanting out the offenses as if they were some kind of personal mantra: “Reckless endangerment of slow moving Industrial traffic, as well as basic Insurance Frigates, and willful destruction of Gallante Stargate property…”

Chai looked baffled. Indies were never a concern and he doubted that his Rifter even showed up on their scanners as they chugged the 15 km to the gate at speeds below 100 m/s. “Willful destruction of Stargates?” he muttered.

A serious nod was the reply. “Statistics have shown that the Gates suffer extremely damage from all pilots that rush the gate, not waiting properly for the staff to issue their place in the jump cue. Millions of isk are needed per month for repairs, people have become lost for hours between Jumps due to Gates malfunction because of reckless pilots like you.”

Chai’s wallet flashed, automatically CONCORD has withdrawn the fee from his account.

“I also credited your piloting license with 2 points, should you reach 5 points within Empire space, we will have your license revoked and your ship impounded.”

The blue glow ceased to exist around Chai’s ship and his Warp drive came back online,

“Have a nice day…” the last message faded over the neocom while the CONCORD ships warped away.

Chai felt violated… felt pirated… and these were the people who were looking OUT for him.

I apply this logic to the situation, if they make ships that can go 3000m/s, why are we restricted to what speed we can go? Oppression!!!!ShockedLaughing

Naturally you were one of the so called 'recklessly endangered Indy pilots', carrying my brethen to your farms.

Typical of CONCORD to have a blind eye to slavers, yet fine those who do try to make an honest living.
