A Conversation for Elite - the Original Computer Game

Not sure if the documentation/storyline was changed from the original version. But in the Amiga version I spent my youth playing, you were a Captain Jammeson, who had inherited a ship and 100 credits from your grandfather.
Does anyone remember any more of the story?
Elite was the first ever computer game I played with a girlfriend, and she was as addicted as me within minutes. She used to handle all the trading and flying routes, while I looked after battles and landings.
Happy to say that she is now my wife and the mother of our two kids!
And we still occasionally play 'puter games together lol.

Yeah, it was always Captain Jameson, in a Cobra Mk III, with 100 inherited credits. But - at least on the BBC - when you saved the game, you got to enter your own filename, which became your new name. Captain Peregrin ruled the stars
