It turns out there was a reason we haven’t seen any new jump points in the area of Tequila Sunrise: The Ani had a fleet parked on the dark side of another planet’s moon laying in wait. The only reason they didn’t attack was because of whatever we encountered that caused grown adults to act like violent, paranoid children hit them harder.

From the looks of things— they took themselves out.

There is no way the Ani, or the rest of the Parataph are going to believe we had nothing to do with this. Druckab has pretty much confirmed that it was unlikely they would believe us.

I believe his exact words were, “No, you are on your own with this one.”

Always good to have a strong diplomatic backup.

Since there is no way this can end well, we decided to make the best of it – we kept our cameras going at all times and proceeded to investigate. Not sure what we’re going to do with the video, but the science and technology we can reverse engineer? It will put us ahead of the curve for the first time since we warped here on a wing and a prayer.

Fipps hopes to get some of his computer guys in there, and G-man is hoping we can get some intel on what the Ani fleet was doing there.

As it is, we are cycling techs through every eight hours – the plan is: 8 hours on the job, 2 days on the skiff. The only problem is — we’re running out of room on the skiff.
