Entry 10 - Losses

March 22, 3303, Godwin Installation, 10 Canum Venaticorum I have been running into more combat situations of late where I've had to fight rather than flee. In most cases, it is a lone pirate - I usually have the aid of the local police forces in those situations. In one instance I made a navigation error and found myself in a combat zone - the Forbidden Seas took on severe damage before I was...

Entry 9 - Moving Up In the Galaxy

March 18, 3303, D'eyncourt Gateway, Lalande 27055 My second excursion was more successful. I arrived at the Mic Turner research base in the California Nebula almost two days ago and spent a little time there refuelling and talking with the locals. The scientists were pleased to see me - as well as some of the data I brought in - but the local administration gave me chills. I expected Mic Turner...

Entry 8 - Recentering

March 16, 3303, Taurus Dark Region - en route to the California Nebula After the incident at Lalande 27055 on the 15th, I felt I needed time to recover and center myself. I had more than enough credits to upgrade my frame shift drive, an operation that took about a day for the engineers at D'eyncourt Gateway. The new 4B drive almost doubled my jump range. After a short test cruise, I decided...

Entry 7 - "Out, out, damn spot..."

March 14, 3303, D'eyncourt Gateway, Lalande 27055 How things can change in a day. After leaving Velas, I made my way first to Payayan to sell the bulk of my data.  I'd reached "cordial" status with the Independants of Payayan while earning funds for upgrading the Forbidden Seas and I thought they could use the survey data.  From there, I made my way to Lalande 27055 to take advantage...

Entry 6 - Back in the Bubble

March 14, 3303, Sohl Installation, Velas I'm writing this at 4 AM ship's time so I hope any readers will forgive my grogginess. I just docked at Sohl Installation in the Velas system, an independent polity on the outer edge of the Bubble, for repairs, resupply, and some much needed rest. Also cargo offloading. On one planet on my return leg I found a destroyed SRV with scattered canisters...

Entry 5 - I've arrived.

March 12, 3303 (Supplemental) Hip 63835 ABCD 1 I arrived at Hip 63835 almost an hour ago. The system has a beauty and a wealth of objects unlike any other system I've visited to date. I counted at least three black holes, two brown dwarfs, gas giants, water giants, and icy and rocky bodies. In addition to the O class star itself, there's a red dwarf companion - so no shortage of fuel so long...

Entry 4 - Mediations on illusion.

March 12, 3303, Wregoe XC-Z C27-8 A 1 Which is more illusory, distance or nearness?  I've had close to two hours to contemplate that question, and I'm leaning towards the opinion that distance is more illusory than nearness. I'm two jumps away from my destination on this expedition, currently resting on the first landable high-metal content planet I've found on my journey so far.  It's my third...

Entry 3 - First Excursion

March 12, 3303, Yourkevitch Terminal, LHS 2482 I am stopping at this station to pick up some final provisions before setting out on my first expedition. Since my Frame Shift Drive is still factory-grade, I've aimed for a modest goal, a blue star known as Hip 63835, approximately 266 light-years from my current position. My route gives me 37 jumps to reach this star. It's entirely possible...

Entry 2 - An Invitation

March 9, 3303, Azeban City, Eranin The past few days have borne fruit - my surface survey work at Meliae 8 D and Eranin 2 was noticed by the Pilots Federation, and I finally have earned my Scout's wings. I received notification while I was still on Eranin 2's surface. Almost immediately after my promotion notice, a second message arrived from someone calling herself Felicity Farseer. The...

Entry 1 - The Right Name For the Right Job

March 6, 3303 D'Eyncourt Gateway, Lalande 27055 Commander's Log, first entry: After some effort, and making a small name for myself among some of the more democratic Alliance factions, I have amassed enough credits to purchase a vessel suitable for the exploration voyages I long to make.  The Cobra Mk III has its limits, but I believe with the right outfitting, I will have a vessel that can take...
