June 27th, 2552 – Reverse engineered or co-designed
Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting
Today, Druckab promised he would tell us more if we allowed him to look at what we had.
I have to admit, it was a little hard trusting him after he tried to kill me, but For him, that hasn’t happened yet— if we’re lucky, maybe it never will happen.
I don’t know, but he went from concern and consternation to outright laughter as he reviewed the 7.5.
“I did not think you all would understand that much of our technology but it would see that you did not reverse engineer the ship,” he explained pointing to a small folded ball that was at the center of the ship.
“We haven’t figured out what that one is for,” Fipps admitted, anxious for an explanation.
It turns out that folded ball is Tiri – it is a luck/fertility symbol the Parathaph have in all their ships.
So— at some point in the future we started working with the Parataph.
All I know is, the fire and destruction never seemed further away. I hope it stays that way.
