Hal 200X is a registered hostile vessel and follower of the Fierce One.
Though Hal 200X is generally peacefull to good captains, those who fail to show their skills risk an attack. In my opinion the ability to communicate and to design and build a proper ship make a good captain. So those who remain silent or those with poorly designed ships are the ones at risk.

(turn 1006), after graduating on the Elven Galactic Traveler's Academy on Betelgeuse,
a young graduated student sold all his belongings and bought him a small scrappy
This captain, Haribo, had just bought the surviving bits of a spaceship from the brand Hal. In fact it was one of the early models leading to the famous Hal 9000.
That same day Hal 200X left Betelgeuse and arrived in Achernar on stardate 1679.1, to fill his pod with snowmen. At this time the ship showed what he made of... scrap. The warp drive broke so Hal 200X was stuck on Achernar for another of turn.
It was clear the ship had to undergo major changes very soon so after selling the snowmen on Schedar Hal 200X jumped to Barnard to buy webpages. Here disaster struck again. The warp drive broke and broke again. Now it was time to really purchase a proper warpdrive, and so he did. Using his fresh warpdrive Haribo began collecting some funds to build his ship.
With some help from other captains and a bit of trading Hal 200X grew rapidly. While the first goal of Haribo was to get some sensor, the first modules he found were mainly weaponry. But using his shiny weaponry he managed to persuade some aliens to gift him the modules he wanted. So around stardate 1681.4 Hal 200X set out to star #24 to start adventuring. Hopping around through the galaxy Haribo quickly learned how to manage his ship well and these lessons resulted in even better results for the growth of his ship. Then on stardate 1688.2 (turn 1044) the Tribune of the People at that time (Sword of Damocles) reached the age of 100 turns, forcing him to step down. Haribo seized this opportunity and ran a campaign to become the new Tribune of the People and with succes. From his 38th turn until his 100th turn, Hal 200X was most of the time sighted at remote stars to pair newbies and to do some adventures. In his 100th turn almost all adventures were completed and the focus of Haribo has shifted towards trading for his academy trainings and the building of a proper combat capable vessel.
After playing for 100 turns, this was what Hal 200X looked like:
|Hal 200X turn 1106|

|warp drive-13588 (U)||Advanced||82%||2|

Warp 90%, Impulse 0%, Sensor 127%, Cloak 19%, Life Support 58%, Sickbay 33%, Shield 76%, Weapon 133%
After being an independent Tribune for 62 turns, Haribo had no need anymore to stay neutral. So on stardate 1703.6 he decided to join the ranks of the SIR alliance. From this point on, Hal 200X grew even faster than before. With no need to meet smaller captains anymore, Haribo could finally set sail for the more profitable starsystems to do some trading and shopping runs.
Then on stardate 1714.6, entering orders for the 150th time, the Great Old Ones provided Haribo with his first real test. They arranged a hostile pair with Wolf and after failed negotiations, combat took place. For those interested in the results of Hal 200X's first battle, you can find them here.
Though the Hal 200X lost many important weaponry modules, the losses where not that big a disaster. After a couple of well planned jumps, the weaponry systems came online rapidly and in turn 1180 the Fierce One granted Haribo the privileges of being his Chosen.
Being chosen, gave Haribo the chance to take his time rebuilding his ship, and so he did. After playing for just 215 turns, the excessive growth of Hal 200X resulted in reaching the overall nr 1 position and sneak up for the first time in the top 20 biggest ship list. This was the 215 turns old vessel that did the trick:
|Hal 200X turn 1221|
|warp drive-13588 (U)||Advanced||98%||2|
|warp drive-13644 (U)||Advanced||90%||2|
|impulse drive-8409 (U)||Advanced||98%||0|

|impulse drive-13254 (U)||Advanced||72%||2|
|life support-168 (U)||Advanced||99%||2|

A tiny middle aged man, acting asif he were a child. Expert in electronics and mechanics, though you never know what your are going to get. He attempted many studies at the Betelgeuse University but never completed a single one. He met Haribo during one of these studies and joined his crew when Hal 200X left. When off duty he can be found in the pods containing scrap looking for parts or in his workshop building something.
He likes twinkly lights, robotics and building eye robots in his spare time.
Engineering officer onboard Hal 200X.
A wise old Elf. He used to be an astrologer on Betelgeuse, but decided he wanted to explore the galaxy on one of the many spaceships. In Haribo he found a captain with the same ambition. So he waited until the captain was graduated and joined the crew. Exploring the skies for centuries, KhanDee is a man of great wisdom.
He is a man of little words, likes to listen to old songs while drinking his cup of tea.

Though nobody really knows what he likes, he seems to prever everything that is forbidden.
