Starting With A Space Battleship - Chapter 26
Chapter 26: A Different [Shadow]
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Li Xiaonian had just collected the Squid King into the [Shadow].
Intelligent Assistant (Shadow): “Congratulations, Captain June, for successfully collecting an ancient lord-level monster to complete the hidden mission-[Legendary Captain], you’ve obtained the title of [Legendary Captain]. The Shadow has all rights open to you, and you’ll take full command of the space battleship ‘Shadow’.”
As the sound stopped, a virtual translucent elf flew around Li Xiaonian.
The elf was wearing a white skirt, with a delicate bow tied on her chest, and holding a white magic wand.
The elf stayed in front of the dumbfounded Li Xiaonian, put her right hand on her chest, and bowed forty-five degrees. “Dear Captain, I am the intelligent assistant of [Shadow], Xiaoya, and I’ll serve you wholeheartedly.”
The surprise came so unexpectedly that Li Xiaonian quietly pinched himself.
It wasn’t very painful, but he still felt a slight pain, so he was not dreaming, nor in the real world.
This situation had never happened in his previous life.
Li Xiaonian couldn’t help but ask, “Xiaoya, only when promoted to the Legendary Captain can I have the real control of [Shadow]?”
Xiaoya replied very positively. “Of course, only an excellent captain can be worthy of [Shadow]. From the moment you got the primary authority of the Shadow, within a short period of time, you’ve collected rare energy gold crystals for the Shadow and successfully collected an ancient leader. You have proven that you can lead [Shadow] back to its former glory, and you’ve met the standards of a legendary captain.”
Damn, it turned out that in his previous life, he was only a worker of [Shadow], not its true owner.
Li Xiaonian held back his excitement and said, “Tell me about [Shadow].”
Xiaoya flew happily around in the air and said, “The Shadow is 3265 meters long, 420 meters wide, and 128 meters high. In its heyday, it had:
[Thunder Magnetic Concussion Cannon] 1;
[Energy Cannon] 6;
[Super Fighter] 300;
[Starry Sky Radar Monitor] 1;
[Dark matter Power Generator] 1;
[Star energy protection device] 2;
“Among them, the most threatening core weapon of the Shadow is the [Thunder Magnetic Concussion Cannon]. Once the Thunder Magnetic Concussion Cannon is in full fire, it can easily ruin space and destroy everything.”
“In addition, the Shadow has a self-sufficient mechanism, with its own [Arsenal] and [Plantation]. The arsenal can produce various weapons of war, and the plantation can grow food and rare herbs.”
Even in his previous life, he had never heard of so many high-end war weapons.
“Xiaoya, are there any equipment and props that [Shadow] possesses and are suitable for me to use?”
Hearing Li Xiaonian’s request, Xiaoya who was originally proud was discouraged and said pitifully, “Two thousand years ago, [Shadow] participated in the war between gods and demons. The entire battleship has been damaged by 98.56%, and only part of it is still usable. Now only [Plantation] and [Arsenal] can partially operate.”
“Just now, I took the liberty to induce the Squid King (Ancient Sawtooth Squid) into the transformation pool of the arsenal, and completely transformed it into the war leader of the Shadow. The transformation time will take about half a month. Once the transformation succeeds, you can summon it to fight for you at any time. At that time, [Shadow] will also have the power to protect itself. And you can find an open place to completely unseal the Shadow and restore its original appearance.”
“Only by completely unsealing and restoring the original size of the Shadow, can the Shadow independently absorb all available energy around it, quickly repair itself, and regain its former glory.”
Li Xiaonian was still excited by what he heard.
He originally only intended to collect the Squid King, but as a result, the Squid King was tricked into the transformation pool by Xiaoya and was about to become his number one henchman. He was really excited at the prospect of having such a strong henchman.
After the excitement, however, he remembered that he was still short of money.
“Xiaoya, the equipment and props I want don’t have to be very powerful, such as bullets, life potions, mental potions, skill books, or genetic potions. By the way, give me some treasures produced in the [Plantation]. I need to trade these items for money.”
Suddenly, Li Xiaonian shook and added. “Oh, yes, and colorful skill books. Bring me as many as there are.”
One colorful skill book could bring him 10 years of experience, which was more precious than any treasure.
Once again Xiaoya showed a pitiful expression. “Lord Captain, [Shadow] is currently transforming the Squid King with all its energy and has no extra energy left. As for the low-level war resources you mentioned, the Shadow does have a large warehouse inside. However, the warehouse door requires energy to open. As for colorful skill books, there is only one in the entire [Shadow], which has been given to you. The remaining colorful skill books have all been taken by the previous captain.”
“You mean, I need to wait for half a month before I can get the remaining supplies inside the Shadow?”
Xiaoya shook her head. “Maybe more than half a month. Now the Shadow is under your control. Xiaoya has no right to operate it. You need to unseal the Shadow and authorize it inside the Shadow.”
In charge of a different Shadow now, Li Xiaonian was overjoyed.
Li Xiaonian comforted Xiaoya gaily, “Don’t worry. I’m not upset. Isn’t it just waiting half a month? It doesn’t matter.”
Suddenly, Xiaoya clapped her hands excitedly. “By the way, Lord Captain, I remember that we had a [Earth Dragon] minecart, which left the Shadow in order to collect energy. Now it is deep underground in the Discarded Mine. As long as you find the minecart and replenish energy for it, it can be a big help for you.”
Xiaoya clicked, and a virtual map popped up in front of Li Xiaonian.
The location of the Earth Dragon Minecart was marked on the map.
The location happened to be in the depths of the Discarded Mines of the Skyfire Base, about fifty meters underground.
“Okay, I see. I’ll get back the Earth Dragon Minecart right away.” Li Xiaonian clenched his fists excitedly.
The Earth Dragon Minecart, which Li Xiaonian had used in his previous life, was not so much a minecart as it was a multi-function weapon, which could carry people and shuttle underground freely to dig energy ore.
Beyond that, it was also equipped with a heavy machine gun, so technically, it could easily crush all novice players in Skyfire Base.
“Great, come on, Lord Captain. Xiaoya’s mission has been completed, and I’ll be unable to contact you for the time being. Only if you completely unseal the Shadow can Xiaoya be free.” As she said, Xiaoya squeezed out two drops of tears from her sparkling little eyes. “Lord Captain, please unseal the Shadow as soon as possible. Xiaoya will miss you very much.”
At a loss how to comfort this crying little elf, Li Xiaonian could only say, “Okay, I will not let my Xiaoya down.”
“Thank you, Lord Captain. Goodbye.”
Then the projection of the intelligent assistant Xiaoya disappeared without a trace.
In the silent underground cave, Li Xiaonian clenched his fists excitedly.
“Great! The Shadow I got this time is stronger and more terrifying. As long as I have enough time to develop, I can also become one of the overlords in ‘Star Wind’.”
The overlords in “Star Wind” were all financial predators, who put all their money in the real world into “Star Wind”.
With the large investments, their return was very rich.
It was fair to say that although “Star Wind” seemed to be fair on the surface, it was still essentially a contest of financial strength.
After Li Xiaonian took a deep breath and calmed his excitement, he opened the friend list and sent a message to Tianyu.
“The boss has left. You guys can come back.”
Tianyu replied. “Dude, are you still alive? If there is a boss in the cave, how can we grind safely there? Are you sure you’re not fooling me?”
Li Xiaonian’s face turned dark. “Whatever. If you don’t want to come, give the gold crystal to Gu Tong and let him bring it back.”
“Haha, I was just kidding. We’ve already set off and are on the way.”
While waiting for them, Li Xiaonian didn’t hesitate and used all his merit points to upgrade his level and skill level.

“Although the attributes are not very powerful, it’s more than enough to deal with novice players.”
Knowing the existence of the Earth Dragon Minecart, Li Xiaonian didn’t need to continue to suppress his level and strength. Once the Earth Dragon Minecart was recovered, he would be almost invincible in the Skyfire Base.
