After Beagle Point.....after Beagle Point.... Nobody mentions the return. The overwhelming fatigue and loneliness. The constant DARKNESS. The void receding behind to be replaced with more and more void.
I have begun tinkering. The Cargo bay scoop has been malfunctioning, I have been recording myself notes and then playing them back to try to gain some form of human interaction, it seems to help...but then maybe I am feeding the madness.
I lost my wingman months ago now, after the turn coat tried to strangle me in my sleep I crushed his skull and sent him out of the airlock still choking on vital fluids. He was my brother.....
Now, alone and 25000 lyrs from the closest human....maybe I should have followed.
The only thing keeping me is my faith.
I am on the final approach to Beagle Point now. It's been a long journey but I have loved every minute. 56 jumps to go
57 Jumps to go!
A bit late but I was in a patch of nothing but Neutron stars about a week ago on my way to Sag A* panicked a few times as came close to entering the cone upon system entry. Left that maze behind me thankfully. Now I am only 120 jumps from Sag.
After coming close to a few stars my auto pilot shit itself today. No big deal really but I need to stay on top of my modules or they won't last.
So rumor has it that systems with AA-A have special astronomical bodies. It's a bit out of the way but worth looking into I think.
So its arrived. Tomorrow I will set forth on a cosmic journey like none other, finally get to see Sag A and Beagle point then hopefully make some fresh discoveries.
Safe travels commanders.
