Captains Log Terran Stellar Auxiliary Forces Construction Ship Asimov Stardate 140215.2236
The Bio Mechs seem to of resumed the peacefull ignoring of the Asimov, I just wish we could understand theses giant creatures a bit more, there is a lot of them that seem to transit between sector 0 and 4, passing through our sector. Sector 0 is inaccessible its where the TSN Sorcerer vanished admist warnings of an unstable wormhole. so perhaps some answers can be found in Sector 3. We finished construction of some gate parts this week and with help of the TSAF John Bradfield we started to install them onto the gate control system. Stabilising the jump point is proving incredibly hard, I’m thinking that we may have to call in a Research Vessel at some point. Not that its likely to be sent here for months.
The The 4th Light Division Headed out to Euphini Sector 1 with the intention of deploying some basic infrastructure - some Comm’s Buoys and Sensor relays, as well as to locate the gravity well detected in that area. The Gravity well was not to hard to locate, turns out it was a Black hole partially hidden by a nebular, The hole seems stable enough and should not pose a major navigational hazard, there are some interesting reading from some of the asteroids that will warrant further investigation at some point. Unfortunately there was a malfunction with the Probe launcher system and only one probe was deployed, to sector 9. Fleet Captain Xavior hopes to locate the TSN Sorcerer or some news of it.
We also located two of the Crystalline entities known to the core as Space Monsters. They seem dormant so we will observe the old saying: Draco dormiens nunquam titillandus. We also located a few Krelien ships out here they have been expanding in this direction for some time so thats not too surprising and it might explain where the Skarens dragged Monsters from during the Long Bar conflict. We are still unsure on how they acquired the Shield tech to do that.
Finally it appears that the Pirates that inhabit the Expanse have detected the TSN’s Presence in this sector. A Number of Radio Messages where intercepted after one a Pirate ship escaped assault, see Enclosed.
This is Papa 01 to all Syndicate ships, TSN forces have been sighted in Sector 1! I repeat TSN ships have been sighted!
To All Syndicate Ships, Order 7 is in effect, Dispatch Ships to alert the Forward Bases at Krisenda and to locate the N’tan Ambassador.
We are now awaiting the results from the Sector 9 Probe to establish a Nav point.
All this was not without loses, the TSN Hawk took some serious Damage in addition to replacing the normal parts, we had to rebuild its Entire starboard Sensor array and replace to energy converters on its Port side Beam array. The TSN Pegasus also needed its Primary Impulse Manifold replace. so our spare parts store is looking a bit space.. still a supply ship is due in on stardate 210215
Deep space, it can do funny things to you, Especially on Valentines.. ah Henrietta.. why did you have to stay at Port Arthur?...
We have been stationary now for the best part of a month the spectacular view of the nebular we are hiding in has become routine, the repair and manufacturing crews have been taken to playing a game where by various objects are hidden within view of the main lounge view port and points are scored for locating each item. There has also been a spate of.. well TSN command would call it graffiti on one of the lower decks, in fact I feel they are almost artistic.. one of the advantages of being technically a civil ship though means I can ignore that. The mood is otherwise good. though the loneliness of command presses on me on occasion.
Note to self, Consult regulations on “art” within a ship.
