Sorry, been rather busy these last few days, catching up now.
Could we have the Dagger pretend to be a trader (with an assumed less threatening name), enter the edge of the system and let an inspection vessel from Elysium come out to us. While they are boring the Dagger to claim their tax we counter board them and take the smaller vessel for intelligence and a means into Elysium?
Brynjarr would not be opposed to some void walking to set up the ambush/entry point.
In terms of EXP spend, I used some to buy an BS advance (assuming it costs the same as the WS advance I already did). Not sure what else to buy. What sort of thing would Lore: Common (Solios Nebula) cover? From the sound of it might be fluffy to go alongside Common Lore (Imperial Navy) and Navigation (Stellar) that I already have.
