Stuck in nullsec with nothing to do

Report from OPSRD0015

‘Waiting, waiting, let’s play the waiting game’ droned Jon as he wandering aimlessly around the station. The rest of the alliance was out helping the CFC in their “hellcamp” against the Northern Coalition, and we were stuck in the middle of nowhere waiting for one of the corporation pilots to have the time to deliver our precious ships.

We did have a Rifter and a coveter in station, but no modules to stick on them bar strip miners and a probe launcher. Jon had remembered pretty quickly about the biggest problem that he, along with most of the crew, had with nullsec. That problem of course being that a lot of modules that were taken for granted in highsec were either unavailable, or cost many, many times more than they do in Jita or Amarr.

“Are we planning on doing anything tonight sir?” Jon jumped as Leeroy spoke, not realising that he had entered the room. “The men are wondering if they can have the night off.”

“Nothing to do except for scanning down the sites for some practice. Ask for volunteers, if not enough men want to then we’ll all have the night off, hopefully our ships will be delivered tomorrow and we can start doing something.”

“Roger sir, I’ll go ask for volunteers.”

As Leeroy went to the crew quarters, Jon looked at the Coveter, and at the intel sheet on the local rat population. These damn belts were too infested with Sansha ships to mine in without first destroying the rats, and we had nothing to do the job with. Even if we were to scrounge around the nearby stations for modules to stick on the ship, there just wasn’t the right gear to make a working fit with, especially in terms of weaponry.
Leeroy came back into the room, with the news that none of the crew felt like doing scanning practice.

“That’s fine, you can dismiss the crew, and I shall go to my cabin. I shall see you tomorrow.”

“See you later sir.” Leeroy saluted, and headed back to the crew quarters to deliver the good news.
Arriving in his cabin, Jon connected to a new site that he had recently found, one that promised cheap ships and a reasonable delivery time. Contacting friends that hung out in some of the trade hubs revealed that the prices for certain ships, such as the wonderful Machariel, were well below market price. Deciding to see if they were trust-worthy, Jon deposited some ISK and ordered one of the cheap ships. After waiting the required time for the ship to be built, the contract for the ship appeared in his notifications, and Jon sorted out for the ship to be sold on the market, as Jita was too far away and the ship wasn’t needed. However, the site was saved for later use, as it had the potential to save millions, if not billions, of ISK in the long term on ship purchases.

Nullsec sucks when you don’t have any ships to use, but then again so does highsec. Being in highsec just makes it easier to get new ships.

The site is
Also, I don’t actually know if this site is fully legit, use it at your own risk. The ship that I ordered came through, but it was a cheap HAC, nothing expensive.

Edit: Further research has shown that it is most likely (p<0.05) that this site is a scam. I'm going to keep be happy with turning a profit on my HAC, and leave that site alone.

Roam the skies,
