I was flying in a ship assigned to me by my faction and somewhere in the middle of the flight I was unassigned pilot and therefore have absoloutley no way of knowing where I am. The faction has done nothing about this so I wonder if someone else can help?
Yes, we can't help you with that. If you are trapped for more than three weeks you should mail email@example.com for alternative solutions, but as long as you have been trapped on the ship for less than that, nothing will be done OOC. You need to keep trying to contact your faction, or arrange for a friend/transport faction to give you a lift to another ship.
