I'm making my way home. Finally.
Don't get me wrong, I love winging with my Silverbacks compatriots, and I'm going to miss the..uh...well, missadventures
back in Arexe
. And, according to the latest wave, looks like war's afoot in Baijungu and we might be expanding again. But, as I sit here in a little layover in Sacaqawea Space Port
, my mind is already drifting to my permanent home at Colonia Dream.
I'm sure there's considerable dust that's collected all over my apartment. I didn't know how long I'd be in the Core Systems--I'm already much, much longer than I even guessed
--so I didn't bother hiring someone to take care of things. Thankfully, I don't have any pets that I had to worry about. But I'm anxious to get back to my sky. I miss
my sky. And, of course, I have a lot of work to do once I get back, not the least of which is trigger the transport of a hell of a lot of modules I had engineered while I was in the Core. Oh, sure, we have engineers in Colonia, but for some reason they can't do high-level upgrades....still! I know getting all this stuff shipped out is going to cost a bundle, but I simply can't get that stuff in Colonia. Such is life in the Wild West. Or the Wild Center, as it were.
Although I do have an AFMS onboard to fix modules, I didn't do as much neutron star hopping as I anticipated, so the FSD didn't take enough damage to negatively impact my trip. So, I saved the repairs for when I pulled into port. Once they get done sprucing up the FSD, I'll be lifting off for the second half of the trip home.
