Escape Velocity Nova: GLi-Tech Side Missions

Gli-tech Delivery

Offer
As you move around, browsing through the various possible outfits on offer, a tall slim woman with long dark hair wearing a GLi-tech uniform comes over to you.

"Are you Captain <PN>, pilot of the <PSN>?" she asks in a very feminine voice, and you nod. "I'm Sharon Masterton, manager of engineering services here at GLi-tech, and I was wondering if you were prepared to get some parts for us?"

Briefing
"Glad to have you on board," she says with a measured smile. 'We need a shipment of parts for experimental weapons we are working on. We have <CQ> tons on order and they are currently being held in storage on <DST> in the <DSY> system. We need them to be returned to here by <DL>. If you are successful, we might consider giving you more missions of this type."
Mission Log Entry
Pick up a package of <CQ> tons of <CT> from <DST> in the <DSY> system and deliver it to <RST> in the <RSY> system by <DL> for 10000 credits.
Loading Cargo
You head over to the Deliveries Office to pick up your cargo of <CQ> tons of <CT>. The staff give you a hand to load it on your vessel.
Completion
As soon as you land Gli-tech dockworkers swarm over your vessel and in only a few minutes they have unloaded their cargo.

Sharon walks out onto the concourse and makes her way over.

"Good work," she congratulates you. "I've just notified the finance department to transfer 20000 credits into your account for your services. If you want any more work like this, just look in the Mission BBS down the hall, and if I need you again I'll keep an eye out in the outfitters."

Once again Sharon walks out and greets you.

"The money should be getting transferred into your account as we speak," she tells you in her feminine voice. "Good work."

Test Polaron Cannon

Offer
When you walk into the ship outfitting area you quickly spy the dark hair and formal suit of Sharon Masterton as she sits at a table near one of the corners of the large room and you decide to go over and say hello.

"I'm glad you dropped by," she tells you in a professional tone, "we need someone to do a few final field tests of a weapon before we start selling it to the Federation Navy. The nature of the tests isn't entirely legal, and until you complete the mission you will be under a fair amount of danger so don't say yes if you're a little squeamish."

Briefing
"We like to test all of our weapons in real combat before we start marketing them to anybody," Sharon explains quietly. "So to facilitate this we have offered the captain of the pirate raider '<SN>' a substantial sum of money if he can defeat you in combat. As a part of the deal he has to share with us his sensor logs of the battle, so that we can find out if the weapon performed up to expectations. The same restriction applies to you, but we will be giving you the Polaron Cannon to use against him.

"You will find the <SN> in the Naka system waiting for you," she tells you quietly. "Good luck."

You find yourself a little stunned at the tactics used by GLi-tech to get battle data on their weapons, but in the end you suppose that a weapons manufacturer wants to be absolutely sure that their weapon will do what they say it will when the crunch time comes.

Mission Log Entry
Go to the Naka system and defeat the pirate raider '<SN>' before returning to <RST> in the <RSY> system to give the GLi-tech engineers the data they want.
Completion
As soon as you land a dozen or so engineers begin swarming all over your craft demanding all your logs and taking all kinds of readings. Shaking your head you comply with all their demands without comment until you see Sharon making her way over.

"You did well," she compliments you, " but then that's why we chose you for this mission. Keep an eye out, we will have more of these missions for you in the future."

Test EW Missile

Offer
As you browse through the many ship outfits on offer you see the slim figure and dark hair of Sharon Masterton walk into the room and you wave her over.

"I need another weapon tested," she tells you in a professional tone. "It's the same deal as last time - we need someone to do a few final field tests of a weapon before we start selling it to the Federation Navy. Again, this test isn't entirely legal and it is quite dangerous so don't say yes if you don't think you're up to it."

Briefing
"This time we are testing the new etheric wake missile," she tells you quietly. "We will be giving a missile launcher to you, as well as a few etheric wake missiles for it.

"Like last time we have hired a pirate raider," she informs you in a professional voice, "this one is called the '<SN>', and it will be paid a significant sum of money if it destroys you. It will once again be located in the Naka system. When you are finished, return here with all your data."

Mission Log Entry
Go to the Naka system and defeat the pirate raider '<SN>' before returning to <RST> in the <RSY> system to give the GLi-tech engineers the data they want.
Completion
As soon as you land a dozen or so engineers begin swarming all over your craft demanding all your logs and taking all kinds of readings. Shaking your head you comply with all their demands without comment until you see Sharon making her way over.

"You did well," she compliments you, " but then that's why we chose you for this mission. Keep an eye out, we will have more of these missions for you in the future."

Photograph Wraith Cannon

Offer
As you browse through the many ship outfits on offer you see the slim figure and dark hair of Sharon Masterton walk into the room and you wave her over.

"I have a very dangerous mission for you," she tells you in a tone that implies that she means business. "We want to look at developing a weapon currently only held by a foreign government. What you will be doing will be highly illegal, and you are likely to be killed if you are caught. Are you in?"

Briefing
"We want to have a look at what the Polaris call the 'Wraith Cannon'," she tells you quietly. "We know it uses Polaron technology, and we want to know a little more about it. So we want you to go to <DST> in the <DSY> system and take a few photographs of a Wraith Cannon, and the 'Wraithii' it fires.

"If we can get our hands on this technology," she shares with you slyly, "it will be worth billions. So if you make it back here, we are prepared to pay you 500000 credits. Believe me, if you can get past Polaris security and make it back here in one piece, you will have earned it."

Mission Log Entry
Go to <DST> in the <DSY> system and sneak a few photographs of a Wraith Cannon and the Wraithii it fires and return with them to <RST> in the <RSY> system.
Loading Cargo
Trying to look like you know what you are doing you head down to what appears to be the bays where the Polaris repair their damaged ships. You get a few odd looks, but luckily nobody asks you any questions. You walk around and take a few surreptitious snaps of a Wraith Cannon as it is being re-attached to an Arachnid, and take a few quick pictures of a series of the fluorescent purple packets of energy that are called the Wraithii as they are loaded on board as well.

Remaining casual you make your way back to your ship and stow away your pictures before heading out into space to try to slip through the Polaris defense net and make your way back to <RST> in the <RSY> system.

Completion
You are met by a beaming Sharon Masterton when you land.

"I'm impressed," she congratulates you warmly. "As far as I'm aware you are the first person who has been able to make it through the Polaris defense grid alive. Is there something you're not telling us?"

She laughs and you grin.

"So where are the photographs?" she asks, becoming more serious, and you head back on board and fish them out and hand them over. She takes a few moments to scan them. "This is exactly what we were after. It is worth every cent we are paying you.

"I need to get this to the appropriate people," she tells you, all business again, "but keep an eye out in the ship outfitting area if you want to be the one to test this new weapon when we eventually manufacture it."

Test Wraith Cannon

Offer
When you walk into the ship outfitting area you quickly spy the dark hair and formal suit of Sharon Masterton as she sits at a table near one of the corners of the large room and you decide to go over and say hello.

"Good to see you, Captain <PN>," she says smiling warmly. "I'm glad you stopped by. We've just finished work on the Wraith Cannon, and we need someone to do the usual final testing for us. Are you interested?"

Briefing
"Excellent," she thanks you with a smile. "It will be the usual deal, we will give you a Wraith Cannon, as well as a few Wraithii, and the pirate ship '<SN>' will be waiting for you in the Naka system. Head out there and do your thing...

"Good luck," she tells you sincerely as she stands up to leave. "I'll see you when you get back."

Mission Log Entry
Go to the Naka system and defeat the pirate raider '<SN>' before returning to <RST> in the <RSY> system to give the GLi-tech engineers the data they want.
Completion
As soon as you land a dozen or so engineers begin swarming all over your craft demanding all your logs and taking all kinds of readings. Shaking your head you comply with all their demands without comment until you see Sharon making her way over.

"As always, you did well," she compliments you with a warm smile. "You have the warm thanks of GLi-tech for all your efforts in testing and helping us to gain the technologies for our weapons. Keep an eye out, maybe I'll have something more for you in the future."

Test RAGE Gunboat

Offer
When you walk into the bar you are mildly surprised to see Sharon Masterton chatting with Commander Krane at a table near the rear of the establishment. Krane notices you and waves you over.

"I understand that you two have been working together," states Commander Krane in a business-like tone and both you and Ms. Masterton nod. "Well, Captain <PN>, I want you to work with her again. She has been working closely with the Federation Navy in developing a new type of ship. I'll let her tell you the details."

"This is a simple testing mission," Sharon begins smoothly, "except that we are going to be testing the 'RAGE Gunboat' as we call it against you. You will be paid 100000 credits for your efforts, are you interested?"

Briefing
"{G"Mr" "Ms"}. Reliable as always," Sharon grins and Krane nods with a small smile. "Two of these ships will be waiting for you in the Barnard's Star system. Disable but DO NOT destroy either of them and when you have finished, return here."

"Of course," Krane takes up the briefing easily, "if everything works out as it should, you will be given access to the new ships as soon as they reach the production line."

You nod, stand up and shake the hands of the two women and start heading towards your ship.

Refusal
"Oh well," sighs Krane quietly. "I'm not going to say I'm not a little disappointed in you, but I'm sure you have your reasons. I guess we'll have to find someone else instead.

"Keep an eye out for me," she finishes, as she turns away, "I may need your services for something else soon..."

Mission Log Entry
Go to the Barnard's Star system and disable (not destroy) the two RAGE Gunboats there before returning to <RST> in the <RSY> system.
Completion
As soon as you land a dozen or so engineers begin swarming all over your craft demanding all your logs and taking all kinds of readings. Shaking your head you comply with all their demands without comment until you see both Sharon and Krane making their way over.

"You did well," Sharon compliments you, "I was mildly surprised you defeated the two of them."

"{G"He" "She"} is one of our best operatives," agrees Krane with a smile. "Whenever something looks difficult and we want it done quietly, this is our {G"man" "girl"}."

"I can see why," murmurs Sharon with a thoughtful nod. "Anyway, the preliminary data still shows that the RAGE is a very competent ship in her class and we have started production anyway, so it will be made available to you at shipyards with the necessary facilities to make it."

Failure
As soon as you land a dozen or so engineers begin swarming all over your craft demanding all your logs and taking all kinds of readings. Shaking your head you comply with all their demands without comment until you see both Sharon and Krane making their way over.

"Did you not hear us when we told you not to destroy the Gunboats?" Sharon asks in an acid voice, "Did I use too many syllables for you?"

"{G"He" "She"} is a little too good at his job," Krane smiles slyly. "Whenever things get rough {G"he" "she"} bulldozes {G"his" "her"} way through."

"I'm still not very impressed," hisses Sharon angrily, glaring at you. "Regardless of this {G"cowboy's" "cowgirl's"} efforts, I believe we have enough preliminary data which shows that the RAGE is a very competent ship in her class so we will start production immediately. I suggest that you teach your 'agent' how to listen to orders."

"Don't presume to tell the Bureau anything," murmurs Krane with a dangerously happy smile, "we might take it the wrong way."

Both you and Krane smile as Sharon is forced to humbly nod and back away.
