Personal Log - Expedition Day 1

Personal log, Commander Timothy Hooker, Research Vessel Curiosity, 25 June 3305. Expedition Day 1. I spent most of the morning overseeing preparations to the ship prior to launch schedule. The navcom required an almost complete overhaul, and several other supplementary systems were removed or bypassed....

Germination

So much has transpired over the last few weeks, it's been too much to stay updated in these log entries, but I presume it's time to get caught up. Arbor Caelum has been growing faster than I anticipated. When I had that dream, I never would have expected it to materialize so quickly. Here now, I've got...

The Last Three Months In A Nutshell

I did try to take some shore leave for a while, but some of the work I did a while back started turning the gears of this company that I work with. Surprisingly they're expanding rapidly and I guess I should roll on back out with the Mallet to set out after it. However, I wonder if any other lonely pilots...

A bump in the night!

Commander's Log: 25 June 3305, 03:30 I awoke early in the midst of a deep sleep, perhaps the best sleep I've had in weeks, to the most disturbing and frightful noise I've ever heard - thud Now, I realize how silly this sounds (er- reads). Really? Thud? But honestly, think for a moment. You're in deep...

Under Siege

Log entry numero uno, here we go. I don't keep it a secret that pirates don't like me, I've hunted hundreds of them. Not to make the galaxy a better place or anything although that is a nice bonus I guess, but the pay just seemed good. Only, over time the pirates stepped up their game so I thought...

Week in Review

Here are this week’s main stories.

The role of President of the Alliance has been abolished following a majority vote in the Alliance Assembly. Prime Minister Mahon stated that the move was intended to prevent any further abuse of power, given Gibson Kincaid’s recently uncovered crimes. The same assembly session also named Admiral Tahir West as the newest member of the Council of Admirals.

4,000 former Imperial slaves have poured into Port Isabelle, the capital of Eotienses A 3, after being forcibly freed by activist group Autonomy. The emancipated individuals have made camp in a number of public buildings, begging for food and credits. There have also been reports of clashes with local residents.

In other news, an appeal for materials from Evangeline’s Elite Expeditionary Force has concluded successfully. A new megaship, EFS Archangel, has finished construction and is now operational in orbit around Shana Bei 6.

And those are the main stories this week.

Imperial Slaves Stranded

Four thousand Imperial slaves have been left stranded on Eotienses A 3 after being forcibly freed by emancipation group Autonomy.

Independent journalist Gwendolyn Nash reported for Vox Galactica:

“Since being set free outside Port Isabelle, the former slaves have been without food, shelter or income. Many complain that they cannot return home without completing their indentured servitude to pay off debts or fulfil contracts.”

“In desperation, thousands of newly homeless have poured into the city. Many public buildings, such as the Imperial Museum of Culture, have been turned into makeshift camps, with large numbers also begging on the streets.”

“Police and support services are struggling to cope with the unexpected influx of immigrants. Already there have been several clashes between citizens and the emancipated, and such incidents are likely to escalate until a solution is found.”

Alliance President Role Abolished

The Alliance Assembly has permanently dissolved the role of President of the Alliance, following the recent revelations about Gibson Kincaid’s multiple crimes.

Summarising the vote, Prime Minister Edmund Mahon said:

“Recent events have made it clear that the presidential position is open to misuse, which places the integrity of the Alliance at risk. Following a thorough debate on the matter, this Assembly has voted – by an overwhelming majority – to remove the role from our constitution.”

“The defunct Office of the Alliance President will now be restructured. Many emissaries will be retained to serve as the non-political ambassadors they were intended to be. Councillor Elijah Beck has volunteered to resign in order to oversee the new department.”

“We hope that this unfortunate chapter of Alliance history has now been brought to an end.”

An earlier vote held during the same session has selected Admiral Tahir West of the Tionisla fleet to join the Council of Admirals, replacing the disgraced Frederick Yamamoto.

Evangeline’s Elite Expeditionary Force Appeal Ends

An appeal for materials from Evangeline’s Elite Expeditionary Force has concluded successfully.

Following coordinated efforts by the galactic community, a large number of deliveries were completed to Chu City in Shana Bei. The new megaship, EFS Archangel, has now been completed and is currently undergoing final quality checks from the technicians involved.

The group’s commander, Archangel Evangeline, provided the following statement:

“Our command group is preparing the EFS Archangel for her shakedown cruise through the system. On behalf of Evangeline’s Elite Expeditionary Force, we salute the galactic community for its support and generous efforts. Without their assistance, this would not have been possible.”

Contributors to the campaign can now collect their rewards from Chu City in the Shana Bei system.

Otto Lilienthal

Otto Lilienthal (23 May 1848 – 10 August 1896) was a German pioneer of aviation who became known as the Glider King. He was the first person to make well-documented, repeated, successful gliding flights. Newspapers and magazines published photographs of Lilienthal gliding, favorably influencing public and scientific opinion about the possibility of flying machines becoming practical. He died of injuries sustained when his glider stalled and he was unable to regain control; falling from about 15 m (50 ft), he fractured his neck.
