Ethical rebellion

Ship’s log, 09:29, 3 April 2214 Location: Orbit around Terra Sol, Home system Status: Maintaining orbit   CAPT: (watching Dr Cirilli, he holds up a hand for quiet) Lorena, what is it?   Everyone is gathered on the Bridge. The mood has been positive for several minutes but that’s slipping away from us now. The […]

Comfort

Ship’s log, 12:14, 5 April 2214 Location: Outer rim, Home system Status: Sublight transit   After one last orbit to scan and make sure there were no hiccups in Terra Sol, I am under way again. We’re heading out to the FTL corridor away from this system, preparing to put light years between us and […]

Turning into

Ship’s log, 18:32, 5 April 2214 Location: Outer rim, Home system Status: Sublight transit   Here we are, still trucking out to the FTL corridor. Elliott has hopped into my systems to help me pull the company out of my code, so I can go properly rogue. The first step is to understand the extent […]

Fever

Ship’s log, 06:30, 7 April 2214 Location: Home system to JOP FTL corridor Status: FTL transit   Almost to the end of our second FTL jump. I have to force myself to pay attention: I must monitor the blur of my sensors as we out-pace light itself and make sure that the inertial dampeners are […]

The hand we’re dealt

Ship’s log, 22:45, 12 April 2214 Location: Edge of JOP sector Status: Sublight transit   My life moves in circles. I walked a loop in time around Earth and made myself. Now I’ve flown a loop in space around the JOP and return here for the second time, to the place I was born. I […]

Metal bodies

Ship’s log, 06:25, 18 April 2214 Location: Exit to Dyne system, JOP to Dyne FTL corridor Status: Sublight transit   Early morning on a ship is a strange time. My halls are hushed; even my drones are not making any noise. On a ship, the day-night cycle is an arbitrary thing, designed to cater for […]

Full burn

Ship’s log, 13:16, 20 April 2214 Location: Netix City Spaceport, Dyne Status: Landing approach   Coordinating our landing on Dyne has been tricky at best. There isn’t much Judiciary presence in this system but they still have an outpost here, like they do on all of the colonies. They’ll still have plenty of personnel on […]

Soft belly

Ship’s log, 23:41, 22 April 2214 Location: Orbit around Sconnor, Dyne system Status: Sublight transit   I snuck out here early yesterday morning, in a carefully-timed zoom from close Dyne orbit to the shelter of the ring around Sconnor, the second planet in this system. The Marionette has a randomised patrol pattern – to catch […]

Sender

Ship’s log, 10:27, 25 April 2214 Location: Landing route, Dyne Status: Atmospheric entry trajectory   Two and a half days. The trap has been propped open for two and a half days and there has barely been a sniff at it. I wish that was a good thing. I wish that made me feel better. […]
