Pirates Raid Far Trader
In the first sighting of the pirate ship Berlin since the Arden
crisis last year, the notorious pirate Robin Sherwood raided the far trader
Queen Bee soon after the small ship came out of jump. System
Defense Boats were scrambled, but unable to reach the scene until the cargo
had been removed. System Navy forces could merely watch as the Berlin
jumped out of the system.
The entire cargo of the far trader, 45 tons of specialty plant materials,
were taken. The crew of the Queen Bee were reportedly treated
with respect and were unharmed. No personal items were taken from
the ship, just the cargo. The cargo was apparently not insured.
