That's right ladies and gents. As (not) indicated (in any way) by the thread title, Husnock01 is about to embark on a great journey.
Folks have made their way to the endgame via Lieutenant 51, and I congratulate them on their bravery. But I wanna do something different (NOT BETTER, just different). I solemnly swear in the name of all that is pointless and probably not worth mentioning in the first place that I will make it to endgame flying NOTHING but a Peregrine Fighter. For every mission. On Elite difficulty.
Perhaps it's too early to toot my own horn (more like "definitely" than "perhaps"), but I've already completed the Kei System Patrol via this method. It can and will be done, so I swear.
Hah! Looking forward to this! I started my own 'Kobayashi Maru' project, promising to play 'hardcore' and deleting my character if I got killed (unless I could click on 'abandon ship' before dying in space, in which case I would have to shell out for a letter after my ship's registry.) Forgot if I had set her to advanced or elite... I honestly got disinterested in the game in general sometime around then because I'd seen all that content four or five times before. =P
