It’s not rare to hear the stories. In the recreations ships and casinos after closing time, where the old captains like to gather. You won’t have to wait long to hear a tale about their miner or transport ship: passing through the war zone, when suddenly a huge shape looms through the darkness. It looks like a wreck, a floating derelict. But it’s still moving. And its turrets are active.
We have all heard the stories of the ghost ships, and many of us claim to have seen them. But today the situation has changed, in two ways. Firstly, we have first hand proof of a ghost ship. And up til now they have frightened novice captains, but all previous sightings have been passive. However, today we saw the ghost ship behaving differently, directly involved in battle. And just as feared, weapons could do nothing against the ship, after all how can you kill something that is already dead? In fact, the ship was assaulting no less than a Space Invaders battleship! Even the previous terror invaders of US were themselves terrorised by the undead menace, trapping them vulnerable to small raider ships.
In this case the Space Invaders ship escaped without difficulty. But the behaviour of the ghost ship did not seem fully hostile. In fact its motives were as mysterious as one might expect. But surely we are all now thinking about the stories of ghost pirates we used to like telling, and hoping they do not turn out to be a reality.
