The Empire's influence spreads quite far from Achenar, and Canfati was the first Imperial system we entered on this journey. And we got fined, too. We scooped up some battle weapons, and what do you know - the Imperial police started sniffing around our ship as soon as we landed. However, this far from Achenar, the police are fairly corrupt, and a CR 250 bribe kept them off our backs.
Despite being under the jackboot of Imperial rule, this system has its share of pirates. We got hit quite hard by them too - we suffered some hull damage, the combat computer was damaged, and the naval ECM was quite badly damaged. It cost around 8,000 credits to fix the naval ECM. What looked like it was going to be a profitable run ended up being quite a sizeable loss! The offending pirate was flying a Harris with a 4MW beam laser. Even though I had 16 shield generators, he cut through them quickly. But not quickly enough...shortly afterwards, we were on his six cutting through his shields. He didn't last long.
All I can say is that I'm glad I don't live in the Empire. After being searched when we landed at Moore City on Fraser's Earth, we found that although the city was safe to walk around, there wasn't much to do. Additionally, there was an after-dark curfew. We nearly got arrested then because we didn't know about it. We returned to our ship, fuelled up and left.
