Of course, my mining was finished after I got shot I fled in my pod to the nearest outpost. Once I landed I was informed that my security status had been revoked and I could be shot by anyone in the area and the concord would not protect me. But all I did was protect myself (badly) and I'm being punished. I just don't understand the PvP in this game. How come he wasn't flagged, or did he not care that he was flagged. Anyway, it's hard to say. I need to find a way to establish whether a ship is friendly or not quickly and how it will affect my ship to either attack or flee from a fight.
