Another fine day in Nakugard.
The reason that the Nakugard system is capable of fine days: the Code, enforced by Agent Alt 00.
Alt 00 runs a tight ship. Our Agent carefully monitors each person who enters the system. And if they speak, of course, they're given extra scrutiny.
Haze Tveskoeg's mining permit was set to expire in March 2019. But his unhelpful statements in local threatened to get it revoked early.
Alt 00 hoped that the miner would get back on the straight-and-narrow, but...
Haze was unable to hide his true feelings. He still held a grudge from an earlier loss, which our Agent was quick to identify.
Incredibly, Haze was still bitter about a pod loss from back in 2017!
Haze admitted his guilt--yet he hedged. Not a mining ship?
Protip: If you lose a ship like this, it's best not to bring it up. Especially as a defense to a charge of bot-aspirancy.
As long as Haze wanted to talk about what happened in 2017, Alt 00 was perfectly willing to extract additional confessions. In fact, Haze did indeed have a long history of spilling salt.
Haze's tears dated back at least as far as 2016.
In 2017, he was still at it. He resisted buying a permit, but eventually his losses persuaded him to upgrade into a tanked Skiff...
...Which he lost by CONCORDing himself in it.
As the years went by, Haze struggled to adapt to the New Order regime and its requirement that all miners obey the Code. And it's no wonder--he couldn't let go of dead ships from years ago! But could Agent Alt 00 find a way to quickly bring Haze back into Code-compliance, or would the miner need to face further punishment?
To be continued...
