Seems I'm not alone out 'ere after all. Little fella could well just be a figment, but if he is, then he's a bloody good one.
Dunno whether I'm bein' targeted, or something more sinister. Heh, sinister. Wait.. both of those are sinister. Oh.. anyways, someone's on ma tail and makin' me nervous, like.
Yeah, I know, tin foil hats.
You gets to a point where you don' know whether you're just lost it already or it's layers of foil. But, either way, I came across somethin' strange; more strange than my last week or two have been, I mean.
So, I was requestin' more information on the Z's journey, thems Children of Ra.. well, you know, thems. Obviously I got some attention, which is fine, I'm nearly 20k out here and even with the best jump drives, you ain't catchin' up with me.
Well, so I thought.
I guess. Well, I probably shoulda thought this through a bit more. Ain't everyone gone home. Listening posts! Idiot. Honestly. I visited a fair few. Abandoned. Maybe. Seems to be anyway. Wouldn't take much to leave an AI or some such in a Sidey there to relay and track, would it?
Then again; ask all you want about Ra... well, you know, and why would they track me? I ain't got nothing to show 'em. They can't be that paranoid that they'd go round picking on noones just cos they ask a few questions about routes, crew, loadouts, dates, planets... oh okay, maybe they could.
In any case, I'm long outside the Formadine and I'm sat not
on a moon, shadowed, not by another moon, not at the primary star, not. Hah. Either ways, I got double encryption and some long distance pinging goin' on - yeah, I'm broadcasting this since it'll be harder to read if my ship gets toasted.
Questions I might be askin' about now:
1. Is the fella real? He's quite the talker, if you can understand him. If not, then my imagination is fantastic.
2. If he's not real, is he a plant? An AI on my girl? She says not. Guess she would though.
3. Somethin' in me? My head, like? Maybe at the last stop - the station.. not the... well, guess it could be the look outs. Dunno how though.
4. Bein' broadcast in my ship from local, like? A cloaked ship? Anyone got those? Damned if I've ever read about 'em bein' real.
I'm resting up for a couple. Then I'm making some blind jumps; if that don't shake em, nothing will. Fella says "Hi". I think.
P.S. You mighta guessed the last log weren't me.
