Space Pirates vs. Killer Robots
I bet you didn’t even read the ToS…
After signing 5 year labor contracts with the Rare Earth Metal Mining Company and being sent to 5271 Bolarus, it’s easy to see why everyone said suicide would be easier. Conditions on the Rock are brutal. The work environment is potentially lethal. Atmospheric containment fields always seem to be on the verge of winking out, enviro-suits barely maintain a passable seal, and every seismohammer seems on the verge of flying off the handle…literally. Discipline is harsh, with failure to meet quota meaning reduced rations and rack time and increased workload. Further failures often mean loss of privileges…like company provided oxygen. With corporations like this running the economy it’s no wonder piracy is so popular these days.
