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...
- Captain Johnathan Ardean
- Science Captain Dominic Wolcott
- Dr. Sigmin Frein Astrophysicist Emeritus
- 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.
