July 10th, 2552 – Fireflies
Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting
First planet to be explored – Skip’s planet of one-thousand fireflies. The feeds looked so pretty and everything looked perfect. Skip’s remote landed at twilight and there were fireflies everywhere and what looked like floating lanterns. It was one of the most beautiful scenes I’d ever seen— until the explosions started.
It seems that the fireflies are a little more dangerous out here. Fortunately, they only took out the remote. Skip had been piloting it back to his ship when the fireflies all landed on the remote and well… they lit it up.
No, in case you were wondering – the was not someone out to get us – this was just nature out to get everyone. We’re looking for a landing zone without exploding insects and suspicious plants.
