I'm bloody glad this bunch weren't killer pirates:

Luckily, they were 'friendlies', and let me pass unchallenged... but I so wanted to gut that Anaconda!

Mind you, I did get blown away by killer Mamba escorts earlier - wtf?

I'll refer you to the previous query (it's easier)!

I assume you've ruled out other factors such as valuable cargoes, passengers or parcels?

I'm always carrying valuable parcels - got 150k's worth onboard, atm. I have ruled out the Beer Cooler though.

They're back again - and they've got a fiendish new trick! A bunch of 'em appeared on my scanner, all yellow, but I prepared to dump cargo and/or evade, just in case - too many for a convoy, I thought. Then one of them hit the comms: You owe us a drink when we get in, you know. That's trader escort talk, so I relaxed a little, and began to cruise on by - whereupon they all turned red and started pounding Spindrifter. Dumping over 20 cargo pods made no difference! Slaughter!
