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. The Ani are part of a Separatist movement that wants to break with the Parataph as a whole and the rest of their people on general […]

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 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 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 […]
