Earth Date: 29/11/2553
Location: Orion Space Station
I had to let the simulation run overnight as it was only thirteen percent through at 1:00am and is still running through now. Hopefully there will be over two hundred solutions to work with. Kate has been racking her brain trying to get her head around Nex programming, we don’t use much but what we do is very complicated.
Today also marks the three hundredth anniversary of the Cataclysm and the start of the month of fasting. We are only able to eat at the eleventh hour each day, and then it can only be five gallons of nutrition shake. Being in a cramped, compartmentalised space station with another species who don’t share the same beliefs will be very hard. Especially when I'm right next to the mess. Still at least there will be a stockpile of food in a month.
I've managed to negotiate a maintenance ship to check over that old hive, in exchange the Earthans get to retrieve the black box from their wrecked dreadnought in the Omega Centauri. They won’t like what they’ll see. But once again they’ll be humbled. A win win move really and I had to consult the Empress to make sure she supported it.
Lord Soul of the United Western Lands approached me today and said that we have their full support for previous aid we gave them in maintaining their neutral state whilst we prevented WW3.
Unfortunately the current schematics for the Earthan Gate of the HSL have been proven, by the simulation, that it can’t connect in any solution to our gate. Thus I must assist the engineering and design team in increasing the ability of their current plans.
Kate has also begun fasting as have many of my research team. Strange, most Earthans ignore my customs but these seem to understand and respect mine. Though its not as hard on them as it is for me, I can see my relationship with my team possibly being more than professional.
A new module is being added tonight which will house my new bedroom and recreational area. That way I can sleep more naturally and can utilise the full length of my appendages.
