I could have, but all my ships were in high sec at the time (LONG story).  So, podding out wouldn't have accomplished much.  Yes, I could've bought new ones, etc.  But, meh.

I LIKED that harbinger or zealot or whatever.

I'd have just fitted a couple nanos and flown past the local navy. They don't hit too hard unless you're doign what I do and flying noobships that get two-shotted. Concord only comes after you if you GCC (or fly through concord hisec like i've done a handful of times and really regretted it).

Frigates and even cruisers are reasonably safe to travel through as far as faction police goes. Just don't fly through Yulai. ;)

What Misan said.  I learned the hard way that CCP has a lovely mechanic whereby jumping into any CONCORD sov system with too low of a security status gives you GCC rather than simply spawning faction police, and you can't jump gates or dock with a GCC in highsec, meaning jumping into CONCORD sov by mistake=you're dead one way or another.

Not quite, although I've done it a few times. I survived ones in a nano'd stiletto. What happens is simply that the faction police that it spawns are CONCORD rats, and they give GCC anytime they shoot something, and they pretty much instalock so you won't be able to just fly past them without getting shot. Unless you're in a nano'd interceptor and get really fucking lucky.

Never done it myself, but I hear that could be similar GCC problems if you ever "accidently" shoot a NPC hauler (the ones spotted going to and from stations) belonging to the CONCORD corporation.

T2 Energized Armor Layering Membrane gives the same bonus as a T1 Trimark.

I wish I'd known that earlier.

Setting default orbit to '1,000km'
One of the most useful utilities in space by far.
