The Exploration Conflict

08 APR 3305 05:29:31 Galactic Standard Time

Jumped from the Sol bubble to Colonia. Not sure how to describe the experience.

Man vs. Himself?

Man vs. the Universe?

Man vs. Machine (please don't tell Jacques)

If anyone needs me I'll be at the bar.

Payday

13 MAR 3305 approx 05:00 Galactic Standard Time

There's something extremely satisfying about coming back in a really beat up ship.

I finally earned my Elite rank with the Pilot's Federation. I've got the intern Jr. Acting Ensign some shore leave. By which I mean I found a daycare to stash him briefly while I run some quick missions to reorient myself with humanity. I'll celebrate with civilization until I'm sick of it again and go out to find my solitude. Don't worry, I'll bring along a nursery compartment.

HEY MA! I'M IN ORION'S BELT!

... I should call her. It's been a while since I've spoken to ma. I should probably tell her she's a grandmother now.

Good thing we solved the problem of time dilation way back or this 10,000 light year journey would have ended in a real tragedy.

The center star of Orion's belt contains a black hole. I can't help butt make a puerile joke here.

Formadine Rifting

8 MAR 3305 01:02:23 Galactic Standard Time

After being served papers from a little indiscretion I had in Ceos, I have decided to go on another deep space expedition. Unfortunately she was clever and stowed away a little dependent that I didn't discover until I was well out into the Plaa Eurk sector.

So me and the Jr. Intern Acting Ensign have been checking out this Formadine Rift hulaballoo.

After encountering this, I decided to nope right on out of there. I can't risk it given my new little asset.

One of us had to change their drawers after that, I won't name who. As a side note, the little bastard is surprisingly perspicacious for a newborn. He gives me the dirtiest looks. Often it turns out to just be gas, but it's uncanny how it comes after I make a wry comment to him.

As a note, it really annoys me that Rocky Ice planets are right next to Earth-like worlds on the frequency scanner. Talk about a tease. Who designed this thing?!

Geological discovery

17 DEC 3304 05:23:44 Galactic Standard Time

This is new; I received this after doing some surface mapping on a metallic planet: Planet with markers saying, "Surface Signal - Geological"

Closer inspection revealed sulfur dioxide steam geysers! enter image description here

Back to the Black

16 DEC 3304 21:22:51 Galactic Standard Time

After some entertaining bounty hunting stints in the Winguardium Murderosa and some drunken party bus antics in the Verka Serduchka, I've decided to try out the new probe and scanner upgrades with the Sacagawea.

I have to admit I'm impressed with the new technology. I guess when the hyperlane infrastructure gets a little better we can scout out locations for miners. Scanned planet featuring ring hotspots

I'm backtracking on some of my catalog both in the hopes of finding interesting new discoveries as well as making sure my mark stays fresh in the history books, of course

Palin Run

13 JUN 3304 02:32:41 Galactic Standard Time

After completing some scientific missions, I decided it was time for some ACTION! So I took on some Thargoids, a bunch of pirates, and now I'm back out in the void.

Dr. Palin wants me to go 5000 ly from my homeworld of Chemaku before he'll talk to me about thruster upgrades.

No problem, the race is on!

It's lead me to some Neutron Stars and I have to appreciate the tremendous boost they give. Check out that 227 ly jump!

Orio-Persean Gap Survey, Day 13 Supplemental

27 MAY 3304 20:35:23 Galactic Standard Time

Okay, I have to admit this is cool. Pictured up and to the right of the Sacagawea is this planet's twin, a terraformable metal world with a nitrogen atmosphere.

Orio-Persean Gap Survey, Day 13

27 MAY 3304 19:59:37 Galactic Standard Time

There's a certain amount of mental stamina that one needs for missions like this. Though every time a negative thought like, "I'm literally flying around in circles" pops up it gets balanced with finding a terraformable water world or gas giants harboring life.

I HAVE decided to change my mission parameters slightly and head further "down" toward the galactic plane. The star field is denser there and at worst it'll be a change of pace.
