Synopsis

Plot

October, 2268. Two months sitting on the cold side of Mercury, using battery power to stay in the shade, but the radar has failed to find anything. Nothing to scavenge. Nothing to pay the bills. Satellites make some of the best salvage. Any stuff you can pull off might have value. But since you don't have enough to repair and refuel the Kratos, you'll take whatever's out there.

Then something hits the radar, finally. And not a tiny blip like a satellite, but a large return that shows a huge ship. Yes. Sitting in the sun's blind spot might have paid off. It looks like a derelict. Drifting, it seems the crew abandoned her. She's fair game this close to the sun.

As you hook up to the docking tube, you look over the controls and notice, as expected, that you are still drifting. It's time to loot this vessel before you can't get out of the gravity well.
