Half the squadron returned, but they maintained radio silence with the rest of the fleet and made a b-line to the Valhalla. There was a flurry of activity from each of the other ships, with the exception of the Twilight of the Gods, which is pretty much running on a skeleton crew made up of members of every other crew.
It meant that we are still in the dark and it seems the fleet is just as happy to keep it that way. At least we’re all in varying degrees of the dark.
They haven’t told us anything but Fipps and I were able to watch the ships return, a flurry of ships shuttle people to the Valhalla and back, and still no word.
The only thing I can think it means is that they found something on Dancer’s Retreat. Fipps has been going over every bit of data to see if he can found out what would cause this level of— reaction, but even Cooke and Mac aren’t saying anything and they’ve been on the Valhalla since the Valkyrie broke orbit.
The only thing I could get out of them was that the exploration team found something ‘interesting.’
Nothing deadly, dangerous or clandestine— just interesting. I hate ‘interesting.’
