March 3rd, 2552 Planning
Tow Truck Driver/Lab Rat/mechanic’s apprentice – Katherine ‘ConV’ James Reporting
Okay, I know that the plan is the first casualty of actually trying to execute it. I wonder if that’s why execute is the word we use— anyway, today is 9th day, and while we’re taking it easy today, we’re planning. We’re throwing caution to the wind and we’re running numbers and analyzing data.
I’m not ]exactly sure what they’re looking for but I know they have four likely planets to explore and the first is going to the Valkyrie’s team led by Dancer, but my view of the mission has been from a pilot’s standpoint.
Today I got to learn, and see a lot of the other possibilities. If we can establish a base that supplies us with raw materials, or even a haven for us to relax and breath actual air, we will be steps ahead of the game and let’s face it— it’s always good to have a fallback point where, if everything else fails, you have a place where you can land and start again – or at least, you know— not die in space.
All in all, it was a rather productive day off.
