    I also had the misfortune to have a skimmer trash me. (Refunded) From now on I fly to the center of the base and almost land backwards, I then spin around and land normally. Sometimes you see the skimmers fall. An addendum: All npc accidents are deemed to be the commander's fault. I don't know if this is by design or a bug. (A very old and long running bug)

    Others have done this on approach. Do not go straight in after receiving clearance, wait a bit off to the side, not directly over the station, sometimes you can see the skimmers pancake into the ground, and fly off, no worse for wear. I had one flash by my cockpit, too close for comfort.

    The behavior described by the OP doesn't surprise me. The anonymous nature of the digital world breeds bad behavior. I hope that the individuals involved, if found in conflict w/ rules, are dealt with. I've stopped posting on the web, with the exception of this forum, because of the exact behavior OP has described. I don't have to waste time with such folk.

    This is the SRV Scarab Mk II, the only problem is that you have to unlock it by bringing in a live Thargoid prisoner to Palin, for dissection.

    When engineers first dropped, NPC's were quite a handful. I remember my class A Python being shredded in seconds, shields were about as useful as wet tissue paper. Eventually NPC's were dialed back and players were able to engineer ships in response. I see a second iteration of the NPC scourge except we have Thargoids. Initially, we are going to get beat down badly until we are able to regroup and re-engineer to meet the new challenge. Be ready, soon...

    Your avatar is, shall we say, not humorous, and any post that has Trump's or any other politician's image attached isn't going to help get your message across. For the record, I fly Open and support many of the arguments to keep Open viable and more populated. I'm sure this thread will become another one of THOSE discussions.
