At approximately 20:00, Fort Jonathan was assaulted by a solid-state radiation storm, as torrential waves blasted open the airlock and saturated the command circuits. After securing the blast doors, The Division Admiral made the decision to wait out the storm inside. Our team used the extra time as an opportunity to improve conditions in the fort by finding storage solutions for the ever growing number of primary and navigational thrusters. Soon, the radiation vapors had passed leaving only the ominous flashes and rumbles of doom emanating from an even deeper space, still unknown and not understood by our modern sciences.
On the launchpad, three daring ding dongs braved the elements in an attempt to tame the wild beasts of the sky. Fortunately for the Starchasers, the monstars flew off but not before bippity boppity booping poor Truth Seeker from his cockpit. Medi Bag and dirty sock were quickly deployed and though quite bloodied, TS was clear for takeoff.
Our assignment was simple: travel to the Northern Quadrant of the New Bedford System and discover a location previously unexplored by the Starchasers. The course was littered with splintered oxygen filters, smashed to bits by comets but these were not the only obstructions along our path of discovery.
At the border of the DNB and the fishlands, under the interstellar byway, a nest of sleeping constructicons impeded our path. All attempts to circumnavigate the slumbering mechanical giants appeared to be thwarted by a complex maze of security grids. Luckily, we discovered the back door. Yes! There's always a back door. Through which we, the mighty Starchasers were able to hack the grid! “You see, the guy who made the software was called Jeff Jeffty Jeff. Born on the first of Jeff, nineteen-jeffty-jeff." …or maybe we just climbed over it.
Ultimately, our mission was successful. Stellar cartography charted a course rife with opportunities to delve into the unknown areas of the quadrant. Most notable among them, the Acushnet Nebula Sawmill Historical Satellite. A fairly isolated region of space which may prove useful in future missions.
