Triple-checked

Chief Engineer’s log, 3 February 2213 Chief Engineer Elliott Monaghan’s report on Starwalker startup, timestamp… oh, just look at the file’s timestamp. It’s way too early on a Wednesday morning for this crap. I hate these things. There are already six different logs of the startup, but the whitecoats want another report. To be filed […]

Ship’s log, day five. That’s how these things are supposed to start, right? The name of the log and a stardate. As the ship, I’m supposed to report on our current situation. We’re still sitting at the JOP, so there’s no need to report position, direction, or speed. I am stationary, resting, and a little […]

Missing pieces

Ship’s log, 09:17, 8 February 2213 Location: JOP Status: Docked Oh good, the autolog has decided to join in on my logs. This is probably how I’m supposed to do my ship’s log entries. At least that’s the boring part over and done with. Now let’s just hope I can get through this before the […]

The side of paranoia

Ship’s log: 14:27, 10 February 2213 Location: JOP Status: Docked So, I thought all we were waiting for was the pilot. One last crewmember to fill up my roster and off we would go: I would fire up my engines and spin us out into the black. It turns out that’s not the case. The […]

Castoff

Ship’s log, 06:30, 12 February 2213 Location: JOP Status: Docked Today’s the day. Finally, after two whole weeks, I am going to do what a ship should: fly. The delivery arrived last night. A heavy freighter powered into the JOP’s region about mid-afternoon (the Jumping-Off Platform is positioned where the fringes of several solar systems […]

Orders

Ship’s log, 19:58, 15 February 2213 Location: Intersystem between JOP and Corsica FTL corridor Status: Sublight transit Captain Warwick waited until we were two full days out of the JOP before he authorised the unlocking of my orders. As with my departure from the space station, I expected more of a ceremony, but there wasn’t […]

Prerogatives

Captain’s log, 18:35, 17 February 2213 Location: Intersystem between JOP and Corsica FTL corridor Status: Sublight transit This is Captain Warwick reporting. The Star Stepping project is now continuing; all files are unlocked and the experimental systems are being linked into the Starwalker again. We’ve had a couple of false starts so far, but it […]

Defense

Ship’s log, 18:23, 19 February 2213 Location: Corsica FTL corridor Status: Sublight transit I thought FTL would be exciting. Travelling faster than time itself, crossing huge distances between the ticks of a clock and bending laws of physics that people used to think were immutable. Yeah, it’s fast. But not in a good way. Not […]
