A weird thing happened to me in my jump freighter

I was in my JF getting ready to make a jump, Everything was in place for the jump So I start spooling up the jump drive, Everything seems to be nominal when it makes the jump.

Except that I notice that I haven't actually jumped anywhere, I was still in the exact same system, in the exact same spot as before the jump. everything was still reading as nominal.

I fired up the jump drive again, it spooled up and the same thing happened.

The moment after the jump drive came to a shuddering halt I got an electromagnetic disturbance warning in the cargo hold. I quickly pull up the cargo bay camera feeds.

"Do not jump again" was written on the cargo bay wall in what looked like nanite paste. The metal around the letters was starting to peel and droop, Indicative of nanite paste exposure.

I dock up for some diagnostics.

people are acting strange inside of the station. I went to get some food. But they were only serving rotten, moldy and putrid food.

a pod was in the hallway, it was bent and broken pod goo leaking out, its occupant still inside, from the sound of it the pilot was thrashing around inside of the pod as if he was having a seizure. from time to time he would mutter "I.....feel fine....i feel fine." or "un....undock"

down the hallway an engineer was "working" on a conduit. he was trying to plug his implants into the station's power grid.

Further along wasn't much better people were lying face down while 3 security officers paced around them.

"STAY ASLEEP" they would say whenever they saw someone move


I walked past the guards quickly, they lost interest in me nearly instantly.

There were people who had their limbs replaced with random objects.

one person had a coat rack for a leg.

another had their fingers replaced with wires.

and another who got his head replaced by a security camera.

the camera man was standing perfectly still, camera swiveling on his neck as he watched the others. When he saw me he swiveled and focused on me. the green light around his lens turned red.

I woke up again and I was back in my jump freighter, Camera man sitting next to me. Staring at me. Lens still red.

My dream last night involved me being run over by a forklift.

Nice stuff, keep up.

My dream was a bit different, Zeta Jones was involved etc so it's too personal to make it public Lol

Edit: finally I have one i can tel

So last night boarded my powerful ship and while Scotty was taking care of final details I was called for fleet reinforcements, Scotty finished as fast as he could and I hit "undock button" flowed by a warp to "something" (yep it's secret).

Suddenly I'm in that warp tunnel watching my board and suddenly lost communication with all crew, a fuzzy white screen and "pouff" was in my pod, my ship wreck was right outside station and a weird orange little wheel was turning on my screen, I took a look at and saw "TiDi factor 10%"

350M ship loss+pod to this invisible enemy but after checking my loss mail just saw while I was supposed to be in "zdat" warp tunnel in fact my ship was being shot at the undock by a team of baddies.

I'm still scratching my head trying to understand...

Listen, I am totally gonna bogart this ****, and tell you that I have been there man. *puff* I mean *cough* we all have, dude. The best thing to do *puff* is to just pick up the pieces and move on. *exhale* Know what I mean, brother?

Once you realize what a joke everything is, being the comedian is the only thing that makes sense.

Man, that's way worse than my dream in which there were AU-wide warp disruption bubbles. Thanks for the perspective.

I suggest you file a bug report. This kind of thing normally happens when capsuleers watch "Event Horizon" with their left eye and "2001: A Space Odyssey" with their right eye at the same time. As the Odyssey expansion launched a few weeks ago, there's no way this could be a coincidence.
