The Fine Art of Dining & Diplomacy

Mission Log: Kitsune Yamashita

[Feb 12, 2386 14:13:47] (Sec Lev 12)

Loc: Victory New Baeldra Hectora 1 (Rhynoa)

Estimated Safe Launch Window Time: T-312 hr

On arriving at our destination it is not difficult to be amazed. Ardree has not stopped gawking since we got here. I can't blame him one bit. Our hosts are friendly and hospitable. We ate together and though my hosts speak English well I find we drop into telepathic conversation while we eat. Modyah has what looks like a major piece in the puzzle we face. How do we move a planet, the orbiting satellites and the asteroid belt including our new found base. It is a cylinder 2 meters high and 1.25 meters in diameter. It can be tied into the sphere to aid generating a well defined and stable field for the Chimera drive transfer. Specifications will be made available to Tyriceus ASP.

I am attempting to get some tests run to see if we can eradicate the Phaerian ninites all our human crew have been infected with. As noted concentration of for Victory crew is dramatically higher than levels of the crew of the Thucydides. I will forward logs to our Chief Medical Officer on the base.

I have much to do and little time. I plan on getting the gift back to the base with all haste and then I have to give a kid a ride home. The Iddree need to be informed and convinced they must save their planet one more time. The pieces are falling in place and the puzzle is coming closer to completion.

Return To Rhynoa 001

Ship Log: Kitsune Yamashita

[Feb 13, 2386 13:47] (Sec Lev 12)

Loc: Banshee New Baeldra Hectora 1 (Rhynoa)

Estimated Safe Launch Window Time: T-313 hr

It felt good flying again. I have to say getting back to Rhyoa feels like home. Our trip was uneventful and Ardea is a good traveling companion. We both look forward to see how the Gendauw live.

The view as we flew in was amazing. The word gets used far too much to do justice to what the small group of refugees have accomplished. A gleaming city alive with activity. Granted it is almost completely robotic, however I have spotted large scale construction zones. We may have met some true friends in the universe. Advanced ones with a common foe.

Landing coordinates received and we are landing on the top of an extremely tall building. Time to take her in.

Perfect landing, passive transponder activated

We are leaving the ship.

Loc: Victory In orbit Hectora 1 (Rhynoa)

Estimated Safe Launch Window Time: T-320 hr

I've gave orders and made appointments to handle the monitoring of surface communications. It should also help in the search for missing crew-mates. I have an appointment with a guy, Sergei-454. He is a fellow student of the game. Time is short and I need to meet Ardree and take the old Wave-rider aka Banshee and pay a visit to Modyah and the remaining members of the Gendaow on Rhynoa.

Always remember to never forget to always remember to never forget...

[Feb 12, 2386 10:11:47] (Sec Lev 12)

Loc: Victory In orbit Hectora 1 (Rhynoa)

Estimated Safe Launch Window Time: T-315 hr

We made it into orbit and I have turned over surface communications to the bridge officer. I have done a data dump on all the records gathered from planetary monitoring since insertion. The language files must be made available to all crew members.

The transmission to the planet has started chatter from stranded crew members of the Thucydides. This should help shorten the rescue mission. Reminder: High security measures are authorized. all rescued personnel must be scanned. NO EXCEPTIONS.

The Wave-Rider has gone through system check protocol, I have an appointment on the surface and will return when advised. Rendezvous at coordinates locked into navi-system.

Goddess Gambit: First Move

People of Rhynoa. I am speaking to you as a bearer of terrible news and bright hope. The bad news is your planet will cease to exist due to a destructive wave front rapidly moving toward your world. Data shows impact will occur in 24 rotations of your world.

I am sending all collected information to each government and population centers. Please examine them in detail. We must all work together to save your planet and people. Contact us for any further information and any observations.

It is important we hold a conference to coordinate this effort. For too long your people have been divided and in need of healing. In the coming crisis internal conflict has no place. I await your response and look forward to working with you all in this time of danger.

Surviving Interesting Times

Personal Log: Kitsune Yamashita

Loc: Asteroid Base near Hectora 1 (Rhynoa)

Estimated Safe Launch Window Time: T-324 hr

The Chinese have a curse. "May you live in interesting times." Life has been beyond interesting lately. Some events are so powerful you must flee or stand your ground. We stand at the edge of destruction. The last chance to save so many from extinction. In case you have not noticed the lights are going out and darkness is at the door. Earth may be lost. Nye-Orin and Utosha are under attack and I hope some will survive.

Why the Phaerians attacked poses some questions. We know about the Phaerian attack and near extermination of the Gendaow. We now have star maps for the other side of Phaerian space. For such a cautious and calculating species why engage in a two front war? The combined technological leap involved in the Chimera drive and the EHTOU project may have forced the Phaerians to attack prematurely.

Oh yeah... time to update squire logs and translator/planetary communication feeds.

  • Initiate integration of Leaders Biographical information on Rhynoa from ongoing monitoring/archiving program. Run... Cmplt.
  • We need to know the whereabouts of the following crew of the Thucydides. A hard look for their ID transponders is needed. Their assistance is critical at this moment. Sent...
    1. Captain Johnathan Ardean
    2. Science Captain Dominic Wolcott
    3. Dr. Sigmin Frein Astrophysicist Emeritus
    4. Kasmir Denibrago EHTOU system Integration specialist
  • Send archive access to Doctors P. von Swantz and Asham Rashid for evaluation. I need to know what makes them tick. It is time for a conference with the locals. As our orders were written, There was an implied order to give aid to sentient beings. We have no choice. We do not know why, but we do know Human Rhynoans are 100% the same as the Terran genome. With the Phaerian genocide looming the more of humanity we can rescue becomes an important concern.Sent...
  • Request to use the Victory for rescue/reinforcement of crew members of the Thucydides. In some cases creation of a military team to retrieve tactical assets we have left on the surface. Sent...
  • Shower and eat on-board the Victory. Sake and chocolate, priceless.
  • Note to myself. Check up on Tyriceus. We need a miracle and if any human can do it, I think that man is Aston. Who knows what Modyah can add to the mix. I feel we are opening the door to a new paradigm. I just hope we can seize it and leap through.

Our overly medicated doctor has relieved me from duty and ordered me to sleep. I know he's right, but I can see the countdown timer and know we can waste energy, mass but we can't waste time or opportunity. I think I have found a way to rest and keep working. Sharing thoughts with Ardree can be restful. It's time to dream up a solution to this mess. That is after I tell him the facts of life.
