Several maggots showed for tonight's mission despite the cold. Pilots suited up to head to the Lexington System via the minuteman deepspace wormhole. A few pilots bailed out early after experiencing several mechanicals within only 3 light years. The mission looked grim consisting of many inexperienced pilots and ships falling apart. We had orbited the DavisConstellation three times in search of Painbunny who said "we're still back there" over the radio. We finally regrouped, resurveyed our craft, and headed through the wormhole. After crossing the Arlington System line several pilots disembarked and removed space clothing. We then carried on to Lexington and decided to try out flight formations on Planet Mass Ave. We had made it 7 light years when "MECHANICAL!" yep, several ships started to experience plasma casing failures. We made repairs and then returned to the fort.
