Perspicacity

Ship’s log, 09:00, 4 October 2214 Location: Sarabande Station, near the Cerces black hole Status: Docked, powered down   Undocking sequence started Umbilicals disconnecting   It’s finally time.

The net

Ship’s log, 09:23, 4 October 2214 Location: Near the Cerces black hole Status: Sublight transit   Most of the time, sublight transit is quiet. Dull, even. Journeys across vast tracts of empty space are generally done in straight lines, under constant acceleration or coasting once the optimum speed has been reached. No corners, maybe a […]

Cake

Ship’s log, 14:33, 4 October 2214 Location: Standard orbit distance from the Cerces black hole horizon Status: Orbiting   This isn’t at all what we had in mind.
