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. It was one of the most beautiful scenes […]

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 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 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 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 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 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 […]
