Supply runs and bounty hunts off-planet are rough, and Tai doesn’t treat her rig very kindly. With the federation loitering just within orbit of her hideout, she has to make full FTL hops to and from the planet’s unforgiving surface to avoid capture, and has to fly in extremely close quarters with rocky walls to get to her base within the larger canyon systems that gore through the planet. These do very well to shield all things within them from a horrid desert sun and she has ferried countless refugees to safety through them thanks to this, while militia have yet to uncover the main hideout thanks to her intimate knowledge of her preciously barren world.
With no one to contend for ownership of this world it’s a comfortable point of defense, and those nazi goons can’t make it out in the open. This deal could last her for ages, but it’s really no way for a self-respecting pirate to live…
This took me ages to finish! Let me know what you think.
