Ocean's Zero, Part 4

Previously, on MinerBumping... Rebel leader JTClone Ares' dreams came true when he was contacted by TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet and Captain Rick Tyson, who claimed to have a mole in CODEdot. They told him they would pull a massive heist and transfer the assets to JTClone's alliance, The Clone Republic. But to ensure everything went according to plan, they needed JTClone to give Captain Rick alliance executor corp director roles.


Rick and TheInternet firmly believed it was best to give Rick director powers, rather than relying on JTClone to do everything himself.


Though he'd first met Rick only about an hour and a half earlier, JTClone was willing to put his alliance in Rick's hands. High risk, high reward.


Before things progressed any further, TheInternet wanted confirmation that Rick had total control over JTClone's alliance. It was absolutely essential, if the heist were to have maximum impact.


Rick, the newest alliance director, was busy wrapping Christmas presents. Once finished, he would get another update from his high-level spy in CODEdot. Then they would learn if the heist would be performed that night.


The level of anticipation grew once again. JTClone and TheInternet were willing to wait on Rick's present-wrapping task. Wrapping, like EVE heists, cannot be rushed.


TheInternet got the idea to have EveNews24 publicize the heist after it was finished. JTClone was ecstatic. EVE's most trusted news source! JTClone imagined his portrait on the front page as The Clone Republic's glorious deeds were shared throughout the galaxy.


As time went by, the heist seemed less likely to be performed that night. There were a lot of assets in CODEdot stockpiles throughout highsec, but critical personnel were still online. Those men could stop the heist. Better that the theft take place while they slept.


TheInternet also believed that TheMittani.com would be interested in hearing about a successful heist. JTClone could use the extra publicity to support a carebear CSM candidate. JTClone was thrilled by the idea. Victory was within his reach. This feeling must be what New Order Agents experience every day!


As they continued to await more information from Rick, JTClone and TheInternet discussed the implications of the heist for the umpteenth time. They both agreed that it would spell the beginning of the end of the New Order.


Now it was JTClone's turn to come up with a way to slap CODEdot in the face: Maybe the high-level spy could have CODEdot offer to surrender to The Clone Republic for three billion isk!


JTClone cackled with delight. He could even use the heist as a jumping-off point for another anti-Code speech. Unless a Christmas miracle occurred, the New Order would surely be doomed.

To be continued...

  11. I already just skimmed part 3, and skipped to the end of part 4 to see if JT started raging. Just finish the story already, since we all know how it's going to end. We just want to see the raging.
