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 […]

Required parts

Ship’s log, 18:23, 22 February 2213 Location: Corsica FTL corridor Status: Sublight transit One more FTL jump down, another one or two to go. It wasn’t any more fun the second time than it was the first, but at least nothing untoward happened. Right now, we’re repositioning to line up for the next jump. The […]

Routines and boundaries

Ship’s log, 13:24, 24 February 2213 Location: Corsica FTL corridor Status: Sublight transit Only one more FTL jump to go. We’ve made pretty good time, by all accounts, and we should be out of the corridor in a couple of days. If I can get the next jump to go as planned, maybe sooner. The […]

Dodging rocks

Chief Engineer’s log, 11:56, 26 February 2213 Location: Corsica system Status: Sublight transit Chief Engineer’s report, twenty-sixth, blah blah blah. We’ve made it to the Corsica system finally. We had two jumps delayed by the insistent fuckery of the whitecoats. I’m sorry: our science contingent commandeered vital portions of the ship’s functionality and our ability […]

The questionable couch

Ship’s log, 20:49, 1 March 2213 Location: Corsica system Status: Sublight transit I am one month old today. It feels like longer than that, even though I haven’t been counting the nanoseconds. It seems like we should have achieved more in that time, but all we have done is establish that my systems work and […]

Blind spot

Ship’s log, 13:31, 3 March 2213 Location: Corsica system Status: Sublight transit Elliott got the immersion couch working late yesterday. I couldn’t see it before. It wasn’t just that the chair wasn’t connected to me; I couldn’t see it. I couldn’t even see what Elliott was doing to fix it, just the debris that fell […]

Ready state

Chief Engineer’s log, 18:12, 5 March 2213 Location: Corsica system Status: Close orbit around Corsica sol This is the engineer, checking in again. Reporting on our progress and readiness to proceed, like a good little screwdriver. Readiness. We’re not ready at all, but I don’t know how to make us any more ready than we […]
