The circumstances I’m about to describe have just happened for the third time in three weeks. It goes like this:
I have a nice S class freighter, but I’d like a prettier model. One of the big Star Destroyer types.
I warp into a new system, and there is a nice Star Destroyer, under attack.
I engage the bad guys. I fight off all waves. I get the message “Attack ships destroyed”.
The Star Destroyer and its entourage warp out of the system, never to be seen again. I don’t get a message from the commander, I don’t get an opportunity to buy the ship. It doesn’t just disappear - it actually warps out, using the relevant animation.
I am left alone, in a new system, wondering what happened. Is it my after shave? My fashion sense? Do I have a personal freshness problem?
This has happened three times now. It’s getting irritating.
