Previously, on MinerBumping... The Nakugard system was crawling with Orca mining bots. Then Agent Alt 00 came to town and wiped them out with her newly formed Talos gank fleets. Some miners cheered, though others were filled with anxiety. Whenever a miner spoke up to question Alt's pro-Code policies, she ganked them. But could she win their love?
The beauty of the Code was on full display in Nakugard. You'd have to be really uncultured not to appreciate a sight like this.
It would be an understatement to say that Majura KIseki picked the wrong day to bring a freighter into Nakugard.
As luck would have it, a Thanksgiving ganking contest was running in the MinerBumping channel at the time. Alt 00 submitted the freighter gank and won a prize. She was thrilled--but realized that the Nakugard miners might not be happy for her.
A day had passed without any sign of Orca miners in the system. Just when our Agent started to think the Orcas might be gone for good, she detected two on her scanner. And one of them was fielding 'Augmented' Mining Drones, forbidden by the Code.
Alt 00 rushed to Nakugard's defense. She destroyed the fail-fit Orca; the other quickly left the system in a panic.
The ganked Orca belonged to the same corporation as Djsky, another Russian Orca pilot. Djsky and company had been chased out of the system five days earlier. They were very foolish to return to the scene of the crime.
Alt 00 wasn't expecting to kill the Orca's pod, but she did...
...Because it was still sitting there, 12 minutes later. Our Agent dispatched one of her alts that didn't have a criminal timer and cracked the egg.
Now even the most bot-aspirant of miners got the message. Nakugard was officially clean, with nary an Orca in sight. For the rest of the day, Alt 00 kept watch, but no Orca botters dared enter Nakugard. The next day, the system continued to be a no-Orca zone.
Another day passed, and Nakugard's new era of peace continued. Alt 00's scans detected no Orcas.
There was no denying Alt 00's power, but some miners had "concerns" about what our Agent was doing. One of them, Katherine Altol, vocalized a heretical point of view. To support her position, Katherine quoted an anarchist. Whoever said that quote, it wasn't me--which means it was probably wrong.
Katherine's unauthorized opinions threatened to make the other carebears grow restless, so Alt 00 put her to death and podded her out of the system. Nakugard belonged to the Code, and only the Code.
