June 24th, 2552 – ReFit and RetroFit Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting Today, I got to be a mechanic. It didn’t take Fipps long to figure out what needed to be done with the limiter – he actually had the plans from the scans we’d done of the 7.5 before it, and the Twilight […]

June 23rd, 2552 Guidance. Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting I don’t know what Druckab was expecting, but what he got was definitely not it. First, he expected me to be some scientific genius, I’m not. Second, he expected really sophisticated research. I know – he was on board the Twilight of the Gods, he […]

June 21st, 2552 Regulator. Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting It feels really strange saying this… working with the Parataph we have found a way to regulate the Fipp’s device and limit the frequencies and waves we use to travel. We also worked with them on their equipment to make sure that there would be […]

June 20th, 2552 A New Understanding. Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting Tower and I never had our talk, I ended up hearing about it from the infirmary with Dr. Takahashi monitoring my vitals while Grthara, the Parataph healer soothed my mind and made sure that we were drifting away from the Apocalypse rather than […]

June 19th, 2552 Meet the Old One. Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting In light of the new concordance, carefully disguised of sheer terror of doing something wrong, we met onboard the Parataph command ship. Her name translated into something like Star Dragon, or Dragon eater of stars— they’re language is a little tricky when […]

June 18th, 2552 Slipping along a slippery path Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting Last night was a very long night. The hardest part was getting the brass to listen and not go off half-cocked. Yes, the sanctity of the fleet was violated, yes there was an attempt on my life… they focused so much […]

June 17th, 2552 Slipping along a slippery path Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting So, it’s a good thing that Parataph do not understand my position here. It’s a good thing that I am surrounded by Einherjar since they showed up… Last night around 02:00 SBT (Ship Board Time) while our fleet and that of […]

June 16th, 2552 Instant Pre-play Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting This is so surreal it isn’t funny. The Parataph had put me and Druckab in a room with a panel of experts, theirs and ours. I basically have a lawyer, a diplomat, and a very protective, yet diplomatic Einherjar in the form of Tower […]

June 15th, 2552 Internal issues Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting Well, it seems that The Fates aren’t the only ones who travel up and down their own time-line. Unlike the Fates the Parataph follow things linearly so there is no all at once meeting of the minds – but rather a survey of where […]

June 14th, 2552 Internal issues Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting I have no clue what the Old One told The Enemy but things have seriously changed. First, their name actually translates closer to Nemesis than Enemy, and to be honest the two words meant the same thing to me, but I’ve learned that there […]
