Space Piracy recruiting and think tank
What about supplies? Were do we get new materials and supplies? Here is one source – unmanned cargo ship’s from Earth. The Russians just docked an unmanned supply craft with the Space Station. How easy would it be to simply intercept this precious cargo load before it gets to the Space Station? It is loaded with food, propellants, oxygen and more –even digital camera. Yippy! Any ideas about how we could best intercept these unmanned supply craft? One great thing about this is that the fewer of these craft that get through the more likely it is that they will send up manned craft ( these will have even more stuff and better technology) also the numbers of the craft sent will increase as Space Station occupant get desperate for supplies. I love it. Stealing unmanned craft will force Earth to put more resources into space development and technology. The Craft will eventually all be armed, manned and on the look out for Space Pirates, making them harder targets but also raising the stakes – if we win we get to keep all their stuff. It would actually be advantageous to leave a few of the manned missions alone for the most part. Even if we can take them, leaving them to operate will encourage more of the supply ships that we will be raiding.
