Integrity

Ship’s log, 19:57, 29 March 2213 Location: Grisette system (unverified) Status: Wide orbit around Grisette sol (unverified) Chief Engineer here, checking in again. Cirilli keeps asking me to do reports, so here I am, even though I have a list of repairs as long as my arm. Waste of time, if you ask me. What […]

Dominos

Ship’s log, 20:10, 31 March 2213 Location: Grisette system (unverified) Status: Wide orbit around Grisette sol (unverified)   The euphoria of the first successful Step has finally faded.

The right question

Chief Engineer’s log, 20:46, 5 April 2213 Location: Grisette system (unverified) Status: Wide orbit around Grisette sol (unverified)   Starry is definitely not endearing herself to the crew.
