    Yet Another FTL AAR

    Prelude:
    I have never written a AAR before and i am well aware that there are plenty of FTL storys already. However, i had fun reading them, so i wondered wether it would be fun writing one.
    Let me add: English is not my native language.

    Sector 1

    Log of captain Grumpy
    Here i am, with the one information that may save the federation, hunted by a massive fleet of human supremacists. Not what i asked for.
    And to make it even better, the ship they gave me is little more than a pile of junk called 'Eagle'. I have no idea what 'Eagle' might mean, but presumably it has something to do with rust or hole.

    Nothing of interest here. I remove the atmosphere from the ship except for the helm so i will not have to bother too much with fire, rats or possible intruders. I am not too sure that the Eagles hull is airtight to begin with as well.


    No air, no problems

    I decide to upgrade the doors with some scrap lying around to offer me additional protection.

    My first encounter with the rebels!
    And immediatly i take a pounding! Their first missile takes out my Heavy Laser. I activate one of the repair drones to take care of the damage while i try to take out their weapons system. Sadly, while my Heavy Ion can take out way stronger shields than theirs, it cannot do so long enough to disrupt anything else.


    Hurry little drone


    However, once my laser is back up, i manage to destroy their weapons quickly. After that it is an easy job to take them apart while my drone repairs the remaining damages.


    Now you can take your time


    They first try to power the FTL and then to surrender. But it is them who put me in this situation and i show no mercy. I manage to salvage some decent scrap from the wreckage. I put it to good use, upgrading my engine and the reactor.

    Jump 3

    I followed a distress signal to this position. Checking what the Eagle optimistically calls its scanner i pick up a stranded civilian ship. Apparently their navigation broke down and they ask me to guide them to a nearby outpost. I do not mind visiting an outpost myself so i agree. Obviously after accepting their payment of scrap.
