Fireworks were certainly in order for this trip - we had by far the most pucker-factor inducing flight during the entire adventure in this one system. Although we only encountered 5 pirates, two of them were well-armed Imperial Explorers! With no system to escape to (not enough fuel) all we could do is stand and fight. Fortunately, high speed manoevering got us on the tail of both Explorers in relatively short order, and the 4MW beam laser we had purchased in Exiool served us well.
We arrived on Mitterand's World fearing the worst vis-a-vis mafioso associations with the two Explorers. However, no-one seemed to miss them, so we had no problems. Newtown is another spaceport where the magnetic boots are handy - gravity is extremely feeble on Mitterand's World and it really lives up to its description of "barren rocky planetoid". The whole place is very functional and is geared to the mining operations carried out in the system. There's nothing to do but haggle over the price of minerals.
