I had... I was gonna make my logs on a site basis. You see, there are four known research sites out here on the lip of the Rift. There's some other named systems too, 'n all but these are very real, very empt... well, seemingly empty sites just, well, just left there. Abandoned. I said so last time, and I'll say it again. Creepy as all heck.
Now, my ship has been givin' me the heebies the past few jumps. She lost some thruster capability back at Gorgon, and then at Alpha I had some weirdness going on with a junction or capacitor. To be blunt, it wasn't what I "fixed" persay as things 'been getting a bit worse. I had a power outage between Beta and Gamma. Flat out, just died. Even the ol' breathers capped out and left me seein' my own air. Stupid thing is, it all came back a few minutes later.
Wanna know the weird bit? The girl didn' notice.
You know what I mean. You reboot your girl and she comes back online. Sings her song as she wakes and gets that old ring of shield pinging away happy. Not this time. Power went, power came back. Were it a blip, well, that'd be a thing wouldn't it? A hicup in a god damned space ship. That ain't a thing, by the way. Ships don't cough.
Mine did. For minutes.
My girl, she woke and her shields were still up.
Ahm.. well, I'm gonna stop there. I hear something in the cargo rack I need to go invest... what the hell is that?
Next log will stop you comin' this way. I guarantee it. D
