With no small amount of regret, I gazed at the 9UY outpost as I undocked in Varuna, my Nidhoggur class carrier. No-one had truly expected Ushra’Khan to be back in the station so unexpectedly, but life is funny like that.
Varuna‘s hold was stuffed with ships and modules, and what wasn’t in there was already safely in Empire space in a Mastodon that I’d taken out earlier. I locked onto the very distant cynosural signature and with a last look at 9UY’s sun, I engaged the jump drive.
In a heartbeat, the huge ship arrived in a lowsec empire system, and to my relief was sat within docking range of the station there, and not too close either, which would’ve resulted in my ship being flung away at some speed. Not a very clever thing to happen. The pilot who created the cyno field was to be commended.
It was time for a change. Ushra’Khan had been an excellent 18 months, my brothers and sisters in the many corps that made up the alliance were solid fighters, but I had got the itch. Things in the alliance had been less than harmonious as of late, almost as if achieving their goal of ridding Providence (if only temporarily, who knows) of CVA had sown a seed of dischord. I wish them well in their path of keeping Providence clean of CVA and allies, but it’s time for me to try something else in New Eden. The universe is once again my oyster.
I docked Varuna after uneventfully babysitting the cyno pilot’s ship, and once I was clean again from pod fluid, I found a bar in the rather quiet station and sat down to make some plans and some calls…
[OOC- edit - I wanted to say thanks to everyone who's posted on a farewell thread I understand has been made on the U'K forums. My forum access has (quite rightly) been yanked so I can't read them, but most have been relayed to me. I hope to fly again with some of you <3 ]
