Captain’s Log – Stardate ###### 14:11
We have encountered a small gang of neutrals unanchoring the mods around a large control tower in a class 4 wormhole 2 jumps from our home WH. Our cloaked recon reports that they are unaware of our presence close by and are at low alert. We have planned to steal the POS at 15:00 hours, the time when they should start to unanchor the tower itself. There does not appear to be any notable defence in ships or weapon batteries in the surrounding area, so resistance should be light if any at all.

Captain’s Log – Stardate ###### 15:00
The word has been given: the POS shield is down and we are in warp to its location. Scouts report that there is no one there to defend it. Scans show an interceptor and a frigate in the system but nothing at the POS itself. They had started to erect two medium sized disruption bubbles on the wormhole into the system to slow our approach, but we made short work of them. We are dropping out of warp, BATTLE STATIONS!

Captain’s Log – Stardate ###### 15:10
With no resistance, we arrived and destroyed a few unmanned haulers and shuttles, but at the moment all is quiet. We could just sit here for the 50 minutes the engineers say it will take to unanchor the station. The tower is a large type II Minmatar, an older design but still highly sought after at market.

Captain’s Log – Stardate ###### 15:17
Scouts report a second station in this system and that the owners of the ‘acquired’ POS have formed a small gang of battleships and logistics support. It looks like they want to fight for the tower after all. There are still forty minutes left to remove the station from its orbit, so I am ordering the fleet back to our home WH to change ships from the light skirmish force we have at the moment to ships more rugged for what seems like a good fight.

Captain’s Log – Stardate ###### 15:55
We have returned to the unanchoring POS in bigger, more formidable ships. Scouts report that the others in system only have half what we initially thought, and it would be an error in their judgement to attack us with what they have available. We sit and wait as the last ten minutes on the timer tick by.

Captain’s Log – Stardate ###### 16:05
The attack was short and effective. We just left the system with everything they had at the destination, POS included. They put up a light resistance, but fell quickly and with no losses for ourselves. A few small ships also report that some of the ‘opposition’ took the fast track back to empire to wake up in a clone vat. A 100% successful operation.
