Captain’s Log, entry 1
Upon learning of a possible saboteur onboard, I enact security protocols to regularly patrol mission critical systems.
Ensigns Yang and Stan report having landed on the comet and discovered that it’s an old drivespace navigation beacon. From it, they recover two jump points: One further away from the galaxy, perhaps where our original forced jump was intended, and the other point would return us home to Sol.
Space Emperor’s Log, entry 2
Our chief medical officer, Hudson Smith, accompanied by a member of security, head towards systems to fix our image capturing sensors. On the way, they are attacked by an unknown person in crewman clothes. Security and I pursue the attacker, while Hudson Smith prevents his escape by activating the escape pod he was attempting to reach. The saboteur is disabled and thrown into the brig.
After a suspicious amount of time, ensigns Yang and Stan return from the comet beacon with a slightly damaged shuttle, though they report no difficulties.
Space GOD Emperor’s Log, entry 3
Our chief engineer, Oliver Smith, reports that with the addition of some non-regulation modifications, the jump drive should be good for one more activation.
We are given no time to consider other options as three modified cargo ships approach to weapons range. I sound the red alert and we take position on the other side of the comet, hoping to buy time until the jump drive finishes charging.
We receive a transmission from the ships, proclaiming themselves as Bad Sky and ordering we turn our ship over under salvage rights. They inform us they’ve “already captured the other ship”, and I answer by returning weapons fire.
The crewmen all perform admirably, and we hold our own until the jump drive activates. We reach the Sol system, and I report our position. Seven hours later, Captain Blackwood arrives and escorts us to UCC Headquarters.
Regular Old Ensign’s Log, entry 4
All onboard officers meet with Admiral Ross and Liane Mohini. We bring them up to speed on what transpired after our forced jump from the simulated battle. I learn the shuttle we deployed before the forced jump did indeed recover the probe, and I proclaim our flawless victory over both the standardized and unstandardized portions of the test.
We nearly forget to mention the message discovered in the FTL software left by BS Aardvark.
After the meeting and some well deserved rest, we report to Captain Blackwood, who arms us and gives us our new orders:
We’re to accompany Admiral Ross and Captain Blackwood on the Deliverance to rescue our fellow cadets from Bad Sky.
