I decided to make one last low paying run to Tereshkova Dock in ALTAIR in my Cobra III ‘Pte Wanji’.
The run was clean no NPC trying to pull me down, I flew into the Tereshkova Dock ready to offload my goods and call it a night. Flying tired is never a great idea; I was not alert, I saw an Anaconda parked about 1 km from the dock and ignored it yes stupid I know. I got clearance from the dock gear down and nearly on the pad and bam I was taking fire from the Anaconda, I was slow to react and my shields where about gone. The Cobra and I did what we do best in a situation like this, gear up, full throttle, 4 pips to power, 2 pips to system boost way from the dock. The Anaconda was sill hitting me, shields down, taking hull damage, there was no way I was going to be able to run straight away fast enough for him not to kill me. So I did a rolling half loop still boosting I was moving fast now and he was missing more than hitting me, my hull was at 50% and I was heading at him, boost again. He hit me solidly a few more times I was at 14% hull as I shot past him boosting again.
No way was he going to get that tub turned 180 deg to his guns on me before I was long gone and FSD away. And so I was gone running to another port for repairs and to get rid of my load of “onions”. As I did I checked the Galaxy may and as I thought my nasty Vulture was only 62ly’s away…. Off to pick “Talutah Pte” my Vulture, on the way back to ALTAIR I thought I really messed this up I didn’t get the Anaconda CMDR’s name, maybe he will still be there when I get back, oh I hope so this would not be the first Anaconda “Talutah Pte” and I have taken down.
I would like to say I found the griefer and kicked his ass bloody, but when I got back a ship had just high waked out, and no one else was there. The one thing I regret is not getting this CMDR’s name for fun and games some other time……
