Eyesight Technology wrote:Once reports came in, and the salvaging operation was underway, Jake sat back in his piloting chair, watching the events unfold. He took a look at the sector map. According to his advanced scanners, there was some kind of station at the next beacon.
Jake lazily signaled the others. "Are we almost ready to depart? Next stop is some kind of station."
"Well hold on..." Jake said to no one. He sat up in his chair, staring at the sensor screen. "Do it again. I dare you." He said to the station marker icon. There it was! The station disappeared from view, and after a few short seconds, flickered back into existence.
Malfunctioning cloaking technology... Jake thought. He had never really thought about a station being cloaked. Cloaked ships? Sure. But if a station - especially one this size - wanted to remain concealed, their cloak would have to be constantly online. Since a station is... well... stationary.
Maybe their cloak is overworked... Jake thought. But what could a massive station like that... be trying to hide?
Bren sighed a bit, "Well lets check it out, we need more supplies, maybe it has the nice rations I like, seriously why isn't the Orange Chicken Ration out more often, seriously I swear its as rare as the Legendary Crystal Pepsi" he said
"Crystal Pepsi?" Ruwen asked
"Some Earthling Soft drink, supposively they only make a few cases every few years and people will pay out the nose for it, become quite a legend among spacers, claiming a single bottle could be sold off for an armada of ships"
