July 10th, 2552 – Fireflies Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting First planet to be explored – Skip’s planet of one-thousand fireflies. The feeds looked so pretty and everything looked perfect. Skip’s remote landed at twilight and there were fireflies everywhere and what looked like floating lanterns.

July 9th, 2552 – Politics and Big Sticks Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting Today we got a lecture on Parataph politics and power struggles – the hung-over edition.

July 8th, 2552 – Drunken Liaison Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting It would seem we are a very bad influence on the galaxy at large – and our Parataph Liaison in particular. I think Druckab understood why we had to break contact and the fact that it wasn’t really safe for him to report […]

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.

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.

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.

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.

July 1st, 2552 – A blast to the past Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting You know— having people able to slip in and out of spaces is bad enough, but when its you, slipping in from the future, especially after you’ve told people in no uncertain terms that you’re not to do that with […]

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.
