December 21st, 2552 – Theory Proving
Consociation Pilot Kat James Reporting
More stupid Void games scheduled for today.
One of the things that Phipps wanted me to try is to open a gate once we’ve cleared one of the void paths. Nothing big- just something where he can get some readings and then he and the other scientists can debate about how many void jump points can dance on the head of a pin.
The trip was uneventful, and when we exited the void, we jumped 3 feet to the left. Instead of the Gumbo taking on damage, the area around us was just a little more real and a little less void.
It lends credence to the theory that we can punch holes in the void, and give it pockets in normal space, but we need to buy the scientists time to figure out what, if anything this means for us in the long game.
I just hope they get what they need and don’t want us doing anything crazier— like opening a jump gate in the middle of one of the pathways.
