After a seemingly eternal, excruciatingly long grind for the Empire (may them bask in the hundreds of thousands of black boxes I recovered for them), I finally got my Duke rank and the possibility of acquiring a Cutter at last. Finally able to buy the best the Empire has to offer, I promptly left Caledo and...returned to Federation space, dusted off my racing Sidewinder and turned the Thunderchirp into a pestering gnat. Because whatever, I didn't fancy the Cutter anyway. Small is fun!
And biting too!
Bonus atmospheric shot, because sometimes you have to stop by and smell the ring dust.
