Some New Homes, Are Also Old Ones...

Erun used the large holoscreen to gaze upon the verdant blue and green planet below him.  The equatorial oceans were too hot to support anything more complex than thermophile bacteria, therefore most life tended to cluster around the more temperate polar regions.  The polar regions also supported the human population of the planet, with towns and villages nestled in the mountains and valleys.  They were a stoic people; calm in their demeanor, collected in their thoughts.  They were also his people.  Though not born on the planet of his ancestors, Erun had traveled far to return to a place he had oft only visited earlier in his career.  His wanderings had finally led him back to areas of space where he had first started his life as an immortal capsuleer.

Having born witness to, and participated in, the endless and often pointless wars that raged in nullsec, he was eager to do something worthwhile once again.  Out there he had been nothing but a cog in the massive war machine of a major alliance.  Even then he was only occasionally able to fly with the fleets due to his inability to fly nullsec fleet doctrines consisting of primarily Amarrian and Matari battleship designs.  Now that he was out he was free to fly the ships he knew and loved best, the nimble but deadly frigates and destroyers of the Gallente and Caldari.  It was one of these that had brought him here, a newly fitted Condor-class frigate that had allowed him to bypass the meager gatecamps that had impeded his path to lowsec. 

In it's hold had been the blueprints he needed to start up mining and production in this mostly lawless area of space.  Blueprints for the production of Tech 1 vessels and and the modules that went with them.  Combat vessels with the incumbent railguns and blasters, rocket and light missile launchers, and all the defensive and electronic warfare modules that go with them.  He was also going to start production on the new Venture-class mining frigate recently developed by Outer Ring Excavations.  He'd experimented with the nimble but highly effective mining vessel while out in nullsec and was eager to see what it could in lowsec environs.

Turning away from the holoscreen Erun walked to the couch before draping himself upon it.  The quarters provided by the station were spartan but cozy, something he hoped to improve on over the coming weeks and months.  Shutting down his Neocom, he pulled up some of the information and procedures used by his new corp before slowly drifting to sleep with a blue-green marble filling his minds eye...

His new home...

Intaki...
