USS (Unidentified Signal Source) encounters are becoming more interesting. Dropped into one last night and nearly flew up the exhaust of a Type-9!

Then there are the kamikaze pirates. No idea if it's a fluke or a deliberate tactic but I've encountered two of these recently. First one nearly took both of us out! Destroyed himself and knocked me below 20%. Second one was right after dropping into a USS; took out my shields and 32% of my hull. Easily won anyway, me and about three cops against a Sidewinder and a basic Cobra.

Recently got 22K out of a Python that interdicted me. Pretty much an even match there, both of us were below 33% when the local police showed up. I boosted the hell out of there and let the cops beat on him for awhile then went back in and opened up.
