Joci, I’m going to be delayed, I’m currently in the HIP 16378 system and I’ve recieved a distress call in orbit around 3b, out of fuel by the sounds of it.

I’ve got some refeuling limpets on board so I’m going to check it out. Afterall I’ve had my share of near misses and we always say that if it was one of us out there, we’d hope someone would come to help us.

Comms are a bit sketchy at the moment, getting wierd glitches, so I’m not sure if you’ ll get this before reaching Maia. I won’t be long hun.

Luca out.

…Signal Blocked at Source…
