I’ll never forget the first time we made this dish. We had been flying a covert fleet of Rapiers, Hounds, and Cheetahs for about four months, and supplies were running out. Morale was low; the crews were grumbling. 

We happened across a small, unprepared Amarr squad and made quick work of them, filling our holds with their tech and corpses. I remember scanning the inventory list of acquired goods with my Inventory & Acquisitions Officer, and whistled when I saw the corpse total. He suggested jokingly “Would make one helluva sausage fest.” I arched my eyebrow at him.

We’ve never spoken of this since.
