Well I did play Frontier and it did have a similar problem in Alpha Centauri but it took about 30 minutes then rather than an hour and a half, hee hee! I had to go there because I had a kill some traders mission that I took which turned out to be a bad mistake - 10,000 bounty after my first kill so I abandoned it in favour of "come and see me in Hutton Orbital and I shall wash the blood from your hands!" What was my reward for that - 800 credits I tells ya. I feared it would have been stuck on my transactions screen forever if I'd have left it. Mind you I got a C4 thruster for my Cobra so it wasn't a complete waste of time and I managed to get on with a crossword I was stuck on. I'm currently hanging around Lacaille 9352 and am constantly doing missions for Jet State Holdings to see if they will take the system over, I'm unclear over how the mechanic works at the moment so I'll have to see what happens. They are up to about 80% influence now so if any of you want to come and help you are welcome!
