This is a mission - you need to work out what to do (there is a way).

I accepted the request to help, but was immediately launched with no fuel and no scanner - leading to being killed very quickly. I was at a level 12 planet, so was hoping to cure my fuel leak by maintaining my ship, but was not given an opportunity. help.

There is a way of escaping, even with no fuel. I'm not being a tease, btw - a mission is a mission.

No equipment bought recently. I have just moved to galaxy 3, and the problems then started.
