    Excellent news - Hats off for Chiggy for making the trip and completing the rescue and Macedonia for keeping his nerve.

    Epic rescue!!! Can't rep the both of you enough, shame. Best ED forum thread EVER.

    Hat off to Chiggy, who rushed to the rescue in no time (but a lot of effort I bet) not even knowing if going there would help. Chiggy is hero material. And I'm glad he got there in time, so cmdr Macedonia didn't get farmed for Chemical Manipulators by some evil commander.

    I suspect it will be something like a GalNet story, rather than the ability to jettison and exchange materials, right?

    A couple of system name changes, and maybe a tourist beacon + GalNet & Newsletter story is my bet.

    Hehe, ninja'd by axewookie himself.

    o7 to all.
    Some highlights ...

    • Chiggy arrives : 1h28m
    • Mining commences : 1h45m
    • GERMANIUM! : 2h03m
    • F-bomb cr*p cr*p cr*p YES! : 2h04m
    • Jumping out of hell : 2h24m

    Having kept up with this thread and then watched the rescue like on the twitch stream I've got to say that I found it surprisingly intense. I can't imaging how it must have felt to be Commander Macedonica, although you do get a sense from his reaction when he finally scooped the illusive germanium!

    Commander Chiggy though... what an absolute hero!
