      Is anybody else thinking what I’m thinking?

      Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person, really.

      On another note, I’ve got a nice wee cave over here to hide in.

      Another reason I like working for the Empire: I have slaves to feed to any incoming hoards of Thargoids. Hopefully they’ll be chocca by the time they see me legging it.

      Oh, and “AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!”

      In the first Elite game,

      Thargoids would pluck your ship out from jump space and fight you in deep space.

      If you had the basic fit for your cobra, (which pretty much meant starter weapons) they were hard to kill.  The ships resembled flying saucers and had heaps of hit points.  The pulse laser of the first game fired like a bolt action rifle.

      If you did destroy them, they dropped tonnes of alloys which could get you a decent profit.

      All this is information when I played the game 25 years ago.

      I believe they made an appearance in Frontier First Encounters, but I never got too deep into that game for them to even get on my radar.

      I’d say this may be an attempted assassination by some group, disguised as the return of the Thargoids. Or at least…I hope so…

      They’ll never catch you damorgs. You need a ship to be interdicted and at your current rate you’ll be walking by Tuesday 😛

      @Damorgs – don’t worry, my wife reversed the car into another, also parked, car.

      She’s also driven into the side of a house.  Although apparently that one wasn’t her fault.

      Yeah, I see those houses moving all the time. Understandable.

      My vehicle has been off colour lately, Just went for a warrant & failed.  Apparently I have bent the steering rod back to the sump (again), snapped a seat mount & one of the brake calipers was seized on… I thought it was going slower than normal.

       

      @CMDR Ping – niiiiice.

       

      In the novella “the Dark Wheel” tharglets were smuggled as parasites in animal hosts…

      @hazara – wasn’t my gentrified driving that did it was it? Didn’t I tell you, that truck needs a proper banjo slinging, corn fed, coverall wearing moonshiner in charge at all times?

      That’s it! i’m putting forth a call to arms to start a sub-group of the Angeli, much like the Screaming Eagles.

      The aim of this group is to go an investigate any strange phenomena in combat capable ships, to find evidence and respond to a possibility of a Thargoid attack.

      Once i get back, i’ll be happy to be an active member of this group, and we shall call ourselves: ‘Goid Busters!

      Who’s with me? 😛

      It’s strange, but lately I have also been hearing these strange noises while flying in space. They are kind of crackling and hissing sounds.

      Omnes Virgo triumphat imperator!
