The Mullet returns to duty. Another day, another haul.

Today the Mullet was given a most excellent contract. 72 Beryllium for 4,000,000. Loading up with scrap so that no cargo space sat idle he ventured forth.

The Mullet first went out to some station he could not recall(Dubbed Burr station). You see They did not have a landing pad large enough for the mighty Mulletship IV. After this defeat by physics the Mullet rerouted to the Chimba System where he was guaranteed a landing pad large enough for the Mulletship IV's mighty size.

On the uneventful journey the Mullet was informed that there were ships after him and he could earn a lovely bonus for each shot down. Bugger that. The Mulletship IV is a hauler. A brick shaped target so large they could hit it from the other side of the sun with dumb-fire missiles. Thankfully the trip to Chimba went uninterrupted. The Mullet had spotted degraded emissions  on the way and went to investigate. He received a firmware update and some material but no souls to save. The Mullet went on.

At Nikolayev Hub the Mullet sold the scrap for a lovely 131,970 profit and loaded up on Beryllium, managing to secure 249 units of the rather expensive metal (A full 1,830,150 Credits worth). A good haul contract or no. 

So thankful was the Mullet for his safe passage that he donated 50,000 to the Independents of Chimba as well as a further 450,000 to the Chimba public industries. It is good to make friends. you never know when you may need them.

The trip back was fraught with danger, twice the Mullet was interdicted as he approached the station and overshot it in avoiding the second one. Indeed a very exiting moment...

On return the Mullet first delivered the 72 units of Beryllium for the contract and secured his 4,039,293 credits then went on to sell the rest for 1,687,164 credits (386,214 profit)

A good haul leaving the Mullet on a positive balance of 8,998,811 Credits.

Please tune in next time for the Eravate haul and triple in system trips. The Off to Market expedition.

Good day readers.

Welcome to a rather mundane account of a freighter pilot making a living in the great depths of space in the mighty Mulletship IV*

Here is the true tale of space adventure. No exploration of unknown stars, no thrilling bounty hunts through multiple systems. No daring escapes from bloodthirsty pirates or victories over overwhelming odds. 

No, The Mighty Mullet will tell you tales like that of the great food cartridge haul of the 16th Jan where the Mullet made a 300% profit on the route to Sun Takush.  He will tell you the rather boring account of how he avoided an interdiction on the way to Haxel Port which caused him to overshoot the target and how he had to turn around to get back to the station. Indeed what stories you will hear here. You would never want to repeat them.

The Mighty MulletMan is a hero of the space lanes. A carrier of cargoes, a connoisseur amongst couriers. Here is the guy known throughout the Federation as "Wasa-name, That guy who did a delivery for us once" You may not know him or ever meet him but know that for the right price he would deliver your cargo to mildly dangerous systems.

Happy flights to you all and please don't shoot at the Mullet.

*A Type 7 hauler with all the trimmings, Bought and paid for by the Mullet Core Mining Enterprise.
