To Colonia and Beyond - Personal Log - Day 9.
Repairs complete, liftoff successful, but I don't think the gear will ever come down again. What a racket they made when I retracted them. Assuming I make it back to a dock, I may need to belly-land this thing. I can't even imagine what the repairs will cost.
I've resumed my course straight to Sag A*, and all appears to be going well. I'm only scanning and mapping the most interesting systems, and making a note of the ones I think people should come back to document. I purged that data from my systems and documented them the old-fashioned way. I've gotten my name on enough systems for now. It's time to let a rookie get some glory, and I've got just the system for them to do it; all I need to do now is get home so I can give this list to them.
Verity, end log.
