Stripped

Ship’s log, 15:13, 8 December 2213 Location: Intersystem between the JOP and Corvus FTL Corridor Status: Sublight transit, half speed   We’re almost to the FTL corridor. I’m tucked in the middle of our little fleet: a single, small sheep between three over-zealous sheepdogs. I’m limping along with both wing engines disabled and several thrusters […]

Shell

Ship’s log, 19:42, 22 December 2213 Location: Mouth of the Corvus FTL Corridor Status: Sublight transit, half speed   Here we are – the Corvus FTL corridor. Somewhere in here, we’re going to take a left turn and end up… where we hadn’t originally planned. They won’t tell me. I guess they’ll start sending me […]

That thing you did

Chief Engineer’s log, 09:20, 29 December 2213 Location: Corvus FTL Corridor Status: FTL transit (tethered)   This is not what I signed up for. Fuckin’ pirates on my ship, calling the shots. Like they know how to do my job. They don’t know shit about engines, or how this ship works, or the fact that […]

Spaceboots and scum

Ship’s log, 16:12, 5 January 2214 Location: Corvus FTL Corridor Status: FTL transit (tethered)   We are being honoured by a visit today. We’re coasting between jumps, waiting for the Bountiful‘s FTL drive to recharge and spin up again. I’m twiddling my virtual thumbs, waiting for us to get where we’re going. There’s not much […]

Eye for an eye

Ship’s log, 17:01, 5 January 2214 Location: Corvus FTL Corridor Status: FTL transit (tethered)   I have a bitch in my head and it’s not me. This Morra, she’s not welcome and she knows what she’s doing. She knows how to step on my protocols and walk through my systems on spike heels. She’s done […]

Brain walk

Ship’s log, 10:52, 12 January 2214 Location: Gienah System, Corvus constellation Status: Sublight transit (tethered)   So here we are in a new system in the Corvus constellation, trucking towards Gienah Sol. I thought we might head to Minkar again, but Hunt doesn’t want to risk it. We have to be predicatble enough not to […]

Tactile

Ship’s log, 12:06, 12 January 2214 Location: Gienah System, Corvus constellation Status: Sublight transit (tethered)   The captain asked me to break into the comm traffic between the mercenary ships and the people they have on my decks. He figured they had to be routing their transmissions through my systems, and he wasn’t wrong. So […]

Promise

Ship’s log, 12:41, 12 January 2214 Location: Gienah System, Corvus constellation Status: Sublight transit (tethered)   Elliott has disappeared inside my head. Did I upset him? Did all that tactile stuff make him that uncomfortable? It was just… a little touch. Was it wrong of me? Maybe he went to back to fix those grav […]

Worms turning

Captain’s log, 16:24, 19 January 2214 Location: Gienah System, Corvus constellation Status: Sublight transit (tethered)   It feels wrong calling this a captain’s log. I’m not a captain any more; I’m a prisoner aboard my own ship. I’m not prepared to call this a ‘Prisoner’s log’ just yet, though. By the time I’m ready to […]

Cavalry sighted

Ship’s log, 10:52, 26 January 2214 Location: Gienah System, Corvus constellation Status: Sublight transit (tethered)   Things are shifting on my decks, subtly and only when no-one else is looking. I’m full of smiling ghosts who sidestep whenever someone glances away. The captain is talking with the rest of the crew, making arrangements and setting […]
