Try or regret

Ship’s log, 15:04, 22 July 2214 Location: Near Sarabande Station, near the Cerces black hole Status: Docked, powered down   I’m almost ready to go get my sister. I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t excited. And scared. The captain is nervous about how the crew of the Celestial Strider is going to […]

Ship’s log, 16:40, 22 July 2214 Location: Approaching the Cerces black hole event horizon Status: Sublight transit, Star Step drive active   There are so many people talking at me that it’s hard to keep up.

Consequences of dancing

Ship’s log, ??:??, ?? ???? ???? Location: On approach to Sarabande Station Status: Sublight transit   Something’s wrong. There are no blaring signs; little hints poke up here and there. They get under my hull plating and prickle at me. Something’s wrong, they whisper and hiss. It’s worse than a siren.   External comms CAPTAIN: […]

Gathering

Ship’s log, 10:19, 14 September 2214 Location: Sarabande Station, near the Cerces black hole Status: Docked, powered down   Here I am again, back where I started. Resting in the same position in the same dock, gripped by the same clamps, the same docking bridge suckered onto my side. It feels like I’ve gone around […]

The ship’s tale

Ship’s log, 22:55, 14 September 2214 Location: Sarabande Station, near the Cerces black hole Status: Docked, powered down   I think the captain’s plan to share our story with the Celestial Strider‘s crew is going as well as can be expected. They were wary at first: not of our story, but of our intentions in […]

The star’s tale

Ship’s log, 15:47, 16 September 2214 Location: Sarabande Station, near the Cerces black hole Status: Docked, powered down   I feel sorry for the Celestial Strider‘s crew. They’ve had so much heaped upon them in the past few days, and there’s always more to come. The indignity of me being their rescuer, the one who […]
