July 6th, 2552 – Looking forward
Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting
While it’s nice to leave the crazy party behind us- we know it could catch up with us at any moment, and it’s really hard to look forward when you have to keep looking over your shoulder.
Fipps and the rest of the science team are working on two very different problems now – First is making sure that we aren’t blindsided when ships with hostile intent show up. We also want to keep people from slipping into our ships at will all the while keeping our ships from slipping into each other.
And then, there is our original mission – exploration and finding planets with useful resources, places with reasons to explore. It’s why the brass chose Skip’s space since it offered the most possibilities.
Fipps has assured me that they have made the hulls slip-proof and that no one will be bothering us, but the lizard that preens me my ears and uses my hair for his nest says otherwise.
