Okay, this is getting weird.

One part of the tutorial is to destroy a robot ship. Last time I tried I got blown up by that transport I’d attacked on the way into the system and so died.

Now, this time I tried again and was being constantly followed around by Ranger Roger. Apparently I have good relations with him. Now, I’m not one to judge, but I think there must be some backstory missing here that I should have been filled in on.

Anyway, this robot ship was, somehow, kicking my arse. (Maybe I’m meant to ask Roger to help, eh?) But I flew back to a shipyard for repairs, took off again, resumed shooting at the robot ship (well, I think I was, it’s hard to tell) and then a nasty pirate ship flew up and killed me.


I get the impression this game isn’t going to be won any time soon…
