January 14th, 2552 Backfire Pilot 237, Reporting Remember how I mentioned that there were different castes, and they don’t talk to each other? It’s more that they tend to issue orders to each other and no one is listening. Case in point, the Military was running the investigation into the explosion and at about 02:00 […]

January 13th, 2552 The stick Convict 237 Well, two months after launch and any progress we’d made as individuals has been forfeit. We’re all back to washing dishes, doing laundry, and cleaning areas no one else wants to clean. Worse, the guards are being particularly focused on keeping us away from anything that could be […]

January 10th, 2552 Ship Shape isn’t all that shapely Pilot Katherine ‘Kat’ James reporting Now that we are officially in unknown territory we’re working our way through systems checks.

January 9th, 2552 9th Day Pilot Katherine ‘Kat’ James reporting Today is our 9th rotation, an official fleet day off, which is to say everyone only works as much as necessary to keep things running smoothly. We get a few extra hours for leisure, and this, our first 9th day, was also the day we […]

January 8th, 2552 Exhaustion has its benefits When you’re too tired to rise to the bait one of two things happen – you either end up being the victim or they leave you alone because your lack of reaction kinda takes the fun out of picking on you. It also helps if they know that […]

January 7th, 2552 The more you know… They say the more you know the less you understand. Personally I want to find whoever ‘they’ are and slap them in the back of the head. After our morning inspection and commisary duties, we were to report to our assignments for the day. In my case, I […]

January 6th, 2552 Cross-Training Wrench Monkey in Training- Katherine ‘Kat’ James Reporting It seems that my apprenticeship to the chief mechanic had been planned before I was even accepted to the Vision Project. Chief Charles “Cookie” Pentecost, told me that the justice department had forwarded our psych evals along with recommendations on how to best […]

January 5th, 2552 Identity Pilot Katherine ‘Kat’ James Reporting Sometimes I think I put that there just so I can remember who I am. I am so tired of being called Convict 237. Then again it’s better than being called by the charges I was convicted of. The more I learn about my fellow consriptees, […]

January 3rd, 2552 Colorful Kat again Each section of the ship is color-coded. If you lose your way, all you have to do is find your line and follow it around the ship back to your area. There are, of course, variations on the color – patterns and shades where things overlap. Medical, for example, […]

January 2nd, 2552 Home Pilot Katherine ‘Kat’ James Reporting I say, pilot because that is what I am. Unfortunately because of how I came to the crew of the Valkyrie— my official designation is Convict 237. The ship’s mechanical staff call me two-thirty-seven, the guards call me Two-Three-Seven, as if I’m too stupid to deal […]
