Date: 8th September 2165
It has been two
days since the attack on Central Five by the Arkelions. We made a
blind hyperspace jump to escape the carnage and as far as we can
tell, we are three hundred light-years from the nearest human
colony; our hyperdrive has been burnt out and our food rations
are running low.
Repairs of the
lower aft decks are moving along smoothly although several
corridors throughout the ship have been rendered useless by micro
factures on the outer hull, shields are back online and so is
most of our weaponary, never know what kind of trouble we could
run into out here.
The crew are on
edge, who can blame then we just escaped from the annihilation of
Humanities most powerful Starbase. There is little hope that
anyone else made it out of that battlefield. I just hope Earth
got the warning we were able to send before the Arkelion fleet
ETF Chiron, signing out.
