Secrets under skin

Ship’s log, 19:45, 28 June 2214 Location: Approaching Feras orbit, Lambda 1 system Status: Sublight transit   This system is thick with ships. I thought there were a lot the last time I was here, but that was nothing compared to this. The beacons are bleating constantly, trying to guide ships into the correct orbital […]

Volunteer

Ship’s log, 20:16, 28 June 2214 Location: Feras orbit, Lambda 1 system Status: Docking approach   On the outside, I move serenely, sweeping around to docking bay Alpha 62. They’re squeezing me in between a freighter and another scout-class, the clamps extending at an awkward angle to account for the bigger ship’s bulk. I should […]

Breadcrumbs

Ship’s log, 13:14, 30 June 2214 Location: Feras orbit, Lambda 1 system Status: Sublight transit   I can’t believe we left them behind. Lang Lang and Cirilli, and my Wide Load. Members of my crew. The drone who is piece of me. They’re missing and I feel it, but I power on through the orbital […]

Terrorist

Ship’s log, 14:52, 30 June 2214 Location: Feras orbit, Lambda 1 system Status: Sublight transit   The pieces are set. I have almost reached one edge of the parking zone, high above Feras’s metal surface, while a squad of five fighters weave their way through the traffic towards me. There are charges hovering between us, […]

Warrior

Ship’s log, 15:12, 30 June 2214 Location: Feras orbit, Lambda 1 system Status: Evasive manoeuvres, sublight transit   I’m surrounded by a mess of ships. They’re all fleeing from the area where we set off bombs, spraying away like debris. They rub and jostle at each other, as if the expanse of the solar system […]

The final piece

Ship’s log, 17:39, 30 June 2214 Location: Nowhere/everywhere Status: Step drive active   Corporeal objects are not supposed to be outside the universe. The lack of substance here picks at me, trying to even the balance between us by spreading my atoms equally across this non-place. My surface blurs. I feel like I’m leaving a […]
