Huginn loss

Mike thumped his head against the side of the pod and looked out on tha battle.  The Sansha ignore him while they did their best to duplicate what they had just done to Mikes ship.

“I am going to be off comms for a moment, tags are up, try not to lose any ships while I am . . . ”  The FC was saying.

“Too late.”

“What?  What the hell happened?”

“I am so sorry, we didn’t even see it . . . ”  Patricia Starshine, one of the logies was apologizing already. “Mike what happened?”

“I missed the yellowbox, by the time I saw the incoming it was way too late . . . booooom! No reflection on logies at all”  Mike tried not to yell or let the disgust he had for his own performance spill out into his voice.  Yellowbox referred to the overview change when vessels had locked on to you.  He had been busy setting his own targets, listening to the comms and sorting the upcoming targets too much to notice that he had been locked AND painted.  His shields and armor had fallen as one with only a moment hesitation before the hull followed suit.

*thud* his head hit the side of the pod again.

“Damn, I hate losing ships on my watch” Starshine growled.

“NOT your fault.  NOT at all.”

“I am logi, we are here to keep you alive, its personal. Sansha WILL BURN”

Mike chuckled, knowing that the logi had no guns to see that that threat would be carried out.  But he knew that even without him this nest of Sansha would see the truth of her threat.  He sadly hit the markets for a ship to get home in and turned away from the battle.

A short time later he was contacted by the FC and told that he might get some reimbursement for his loss.  It did not completely cover the fittings but the hull could be replaced . . . and that was something.  Huggy Bear would ride again.

Yeah, it hurts . . . yeah, I coulda seen it coming but damn that alpha was high.  Good fleets and good folks take care of their own.  Excellent logies feel bad even if there was nothing they could do.  I was lucky and in good company.

Fly it like you won it

    Mike, this brings to mind something I have not really seen anyone write about. Dedicated Webber ships were only briefly mention on Jester’s Trek recently, but can play a major role in both incursion fleets and Pvp. Have you considered writing about this role for Loki, Bhaalgorn, Huginn, Vindicator and the like?
