July 7th, 2552 – No Going Home Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting The problem with jumping, with creating the well and stepping into it – is the fact that it leaves ripples. Ripples that can be followed. It’s why we took to jumping short distances and doubling back. I realized I could shift home […]

July 6th, 2552 – Looking forward Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting While it’s nice to leave the crazy party behind us- we know it could catch up with us at any moment, and it’s really hard to look forward when you have to keep looking over your shoulder. Fipps and the rest of the […]

July 5th, 2552 – Three Strikes and we’re out Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting It’s amazing how quickly the fleet can make a decision when they’re under attack. Three attacks – one by a group claiming to be the true representatives of the Parataph, one surgical strike by the Ani, and one attack by […]

July 4th, 2552 – Never study physics from a philosophy professor Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting Today Druckab vanished for half the day- but when he returned, he was a lot more forthcoming. I’m guessing that he spent the morning reporting in to the Parataph command and they’d given him the go-ahead. It seems […]

July 3rd, 2552 – Tangled web Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting So – it turns out that being second cousin, twice removed to Druckab means that I am protected, by him and his clan. The irony here is the fact that his future self tried to kill me, but that hasn’t happened yet, and […]

July 2nd, 2552 – What have we gotten ourselves into? Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting One of the nice things about having Druckab on our side is the fact that we now know a lot more about the Parataph, the Ani, and how we fit in in this stretch of Space. The Parataph are […]

June 30th, 2552 – Sparring Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting Today, instead of studying our technology, Druckab spend the day observing us. He watched our interactions and tried to understand the nuance in having a mechanic/Pilot who’s a convicted criminal. It seems that the Parataph unceremoniously execute their criminals and keep their disruptive tendencies […]

June 29th, 2552 – Lost in translation Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting Today Lilbit pretty much Dragged Aziz to see me. It’s the first time I could talk to him since we’d parted ways and he was confused when I told him about the Parataph, and the vision of fire. The thing was, he […]

June 28th, 2552 – Liaising on a Wednesday afternoon Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting I really don’t like the fact that, while the Parataph fleet has moved on, Druckab can communicate with them almost instantaneously and that they can pretty much slip in whenever and wherever they want. I like it even less when […]

June 27th, 2552 – Reverse engineered or co-designed Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting Today, Druckab promised he would tell us more if we allowed him to look at what we had. I have to admit, it was a little hard trusting him after he tried to kill me, but For him, that hasn’t happened […]
