...And the primary star is completely filling my canopy. I haven't dropped out of SC, but with a large blue star, I'm frying like an egg on the road in the middle of July. I whip my Cobra around as fast as I can and throttle all the way up, but I know it's not enough.
Frak, I'm not gaining speed fast enough. crack, crick, crack And my canopy is cracking....great...
crack...crack...whoosh The indicator telling me that I have 7:30 of oxygen remaining pops up as my heat keeps climbing and my hull keeps dropping. I'm traveling at 2c now, but still not making headway. But it doesn't matter anymore. I haven't seen a station in 30 jumps. I throttled back and accepted my fate.
Finally, mercifully, my hull hits 0% and my Cobra disintegrated in a blinding explosion.
I'm back at the last station I stopped at before I headed in to the wide open abyss of space, over 1000 LY from HIP 35926, and trying to decide if it's worth the time to make the trip again, because that system was awesome and the money was going to be great. But man, that's going to be a long 3 days of re-jumping.
TL;DR Thought I throttled down before looking at the system map. Hyper-giant blue star welcomed me in its warm embrace."
