Mission Briefing

So you want to fly for the Guristas? Welcome aboard, egger. You get to do some rookie stuff.

We've leaked information on the location of a particularly rich group of asteroids within Venal. We expect a Minedrill expedition to show up soon, and we want someone to be there to greet them. You can expect their expedition to be made up of several combat escorts and an industrial.

Take out the industrial and grab its crew. Knowing Minedrill, this'll just be a research team – they need to test the rocks first before sending in those expensive barges. But once we have their people, we can mine their personnel for any intelligence on future ops.

If you haven't picked up on this already, we're a cautious bunch. We like to make sure whatever op we run goes off right. We have weapon caches, safe houses, and agents everywhere we plan to operate, even in empire space. The Guristas have contingencies for everything, even in dealing with someone like you.


Objective

We gave you the coordinates for that Minedrill mining operation. Rough it up and bring back any crew members you might find there.

Arrival Message

You there? Good. No one's arrived yet. Take up a position wherever you want, and wait. When you see the Minedrill expedition, warp to an asteroid near the ships, then take them out. You're positioned to get the drop on them, so make sure you take advantage of the situation.
