OK, so I was so peeved off after the dismal performance England put up in the 2nd half (Vs Wales, Rugby World Cup) that I fuelled up & blasted over to investigate - 'twaz only 7 jumps.
So, whilst staying perfectly 'Swiss' I shot 11 minutes of what turned out to be well-framed but disappointingly low-res footage of the 2 behemoths slugging it out. Thanks a bunch Open Broadcaster Software!
Nice though it was to watch the pretty laser-show, two observations quickly dulled the spectacle for me...
1) Those CapShips don't appear to have any shields, yet
2) No matter how hard & long they blasted away at each other, I didn't see any apparent damage to either one.
Can't help but think FD dropped the ball a bit on this one. Maybe season 3, huh? Or 4?
Anyway, after trying to supercruise through a thin planetary ring (oops! 35k mistake
) to check out the other HRCZ, I refuelled & done a one back to LTT 15574 & called it a night. Felt like I'd been to a heavily-toted heavyweight prize fight, only to witness a wrestling match. Not even as in WWF, more like Big Daddy v Giant Haystacks (Hope at least SOME of you know what that means!)
Don't think I'll even u/l the vid (unless asked) & on the morrow it's back to my fave pursuit, melting would be pirates who are tempted by the thought of a maybe-unarmed, cargo-heavy 'thon.
LOL & I thought the paint-job was enough of a warning to all but the terminally stupid. It's evolution, baby!https://youtu.be/aDaOgu2CQtI
