After my return, I tasked Tau to snoop in Federal Navy databanks to find records related to my "accident" back when I was 21 and flying for the Federation.
I spent my time supporting the sudden uprising of a previously harmful independent faction at my home system, we easily crushed the Empire and took control of 2 starports and the system. This proved to be beneficial as I'm now out of reach for the Imperial Navy and the shipyard got updated too, thus I can continue my operations from here. I haven't learned much of what is now part of the ship, other than the FSD and booster can't be removed, but I am not concerned as if it was hostile it would already have killed me.

Somayaji Terminal - Passenger lounge
I'm trying to find someone who would pay me a nicely for a basic trip, not a lot of folks wanting to pay. 28mil for a trip to Colonia, yeah no. I go through an endless amount of bad contracts until 1 strikes my eye
|Contract type: Long range||Dasha Watson wants to go to Collection of Wonders
|Passenger type: Famous explorer (First class)||Distance: 11.5kly
|Time limit: 4 weeks||Reward: 30 small payments of a million credits
Collection of Wonders? How nice, gonna kill 2 birds with one stone. Getting that finally off my bucket list and make 30mil for free.
"Jerome, I've found something
"What is it Tau?", I ask
"Holo documentation about your accident
I rush to the cockpit and I'm greeted by a hologram of me before the crash
It then fades into a FDS travelling through hyperspace and abruptly being slapped out and into an earth-like planet, after which a garbled recording shows me being pulled out by a machine, though the operator isn't seen. End of recording
"You'll need to do some ahem
investigating in the Imperial Archives"
"Affirmative, would you like a cup of Fujian tea before departure
"Yes, thank you Tau"

I conduct a tour of the system, and then start the return trip. But not with any haste, I still have 3 weeks 5 days left on the clock.

I have no idea what to do while waiting for more info, so I'm trying to make a quick buck with anything
Might take a tour around the bubble at some point, or look for more answers
