I must say I am a bit frustrated at getting the first kills. I probably killed 10 ships by now, but of course, I too died in the process. After at least one kill I constantly mass-lock into other bubbles of bad guys, and since then my ship is in pretty bad shape, I won't last much longer.

How did you achieve the first kills AND got to dock and save?

When your ship is in bad shape, leave the main space lane where most of the traffic is, and cruise in parallel to the safety of the station. Unless you have deep space pirates installed, of course :twisted:

I'll never forget the first time I made a kill and made it all the way to the station. That was the first time I ever crashed into a station!

Got my first 5 in Rilace (Galaxy 1), a communist system... last one rammed me and blew up. Then some allies came along and saved what was left of my shiny bottom. Warped out to deep space quite a while, then aligned with the station, and docked in safety :)

My commander has changed tactics. He no longer relishes destroying hostiles preferring rather to discourage them. This has been a boon for his courier trade.
