So here I sit, on Eoch Flyuae LL-N C7-239 1, a dusty, tiny, metal rich and deceptively high gravity fireball 20 some odd light seconds from its sun. I'm in my SRV inspecting the bottom of Galaxy's hull for damage as I misjudged the gravity of this world just a teeeeeeny bit and slammed her into the surface going upwards of 100k and thank God for shields, let me tell you... the hull monitor says 52% and I don't see any serious breaches from outside, so I suppose I'll get some shut-eye before resuming course tomorrow. Heading back to the bubble now, to Lemmy's Rock. 18,800 ly to go.
Also, flying the Asp X long distance is nice compared to the Spartan DBX. Nice living quarters, comfortable for two, space for four. Decent size galley. A small medbay with a robot to treat minor injury. All my equipment from Discovery, plus a star-gulping fuel scoop and the medium size cargo bay makes for a mighty comfy home away from home. Discovery had maybe 15 square feet of room to live in. That I did for 21,000 long light years. This ship really isn't bad. It's really worth it being a touch slower.
(Also, I probably would have died on that planet in a DBX, just saying.)
