Edition 26: Risk Analysis by Tom Dullemond

Ships find transformative nodes, buried in proscribed space. Someone must go in to destroy or salvage what they can of these evolving ships. On this mission, not all is as it seems.

Mission log: Today’s salvage target, The Great Bluefin, is a registered Mitsuyama Corp long-range supply transport. It was unofficially flagged as a conversion-risk vessel after impact with a dormant node in proscribed space. Please note: I will commence this salvage operation by entering through the primary outer loading hatch. This was also the entry point of the failed recovery mission launched by Mitsuyama Corporate Security three hours ago.
