Interstellar help OXP
This OXP creates traders who are stuck in interstellar space and ask for your help. If you help them to the next system, you will be rewarded.
On every misjump there is a certain chance that you meet a fellow trader who got stuck after a misjump--not enough fuel left to reach the closest star. He will send distress calls and ask for your help. If you are in the mood to help him, just answer his call by flying towards him. You will have to get closer than 1000 meters in order to make clear that you are there for him.
After you have jumped to any system within your reach, he will follow you through your wormhole (note that he will not jump out at the exact same location as you; wormhole ends are a tiny little bit fuzzy, which means that ships leaving the same wormhole will all be somewhere in the vicinity of the witchpoint, but not at the exact same place). You will have earned eternal gratitude by a fellow trader, and a financial reward, which will always be enough to cover your fuel costs for the jump.
