From Mica’s Diary:
I had managed to get a good rest after a furious bit of scanning that had me uncovering a Ladar site (no Fullerite C540 though, more of the C70/C72 variant) and 2 Sleeper cruisers. I had wisely avoided getting close and had powered the ship down a few hours ago at a safe spot.
There’s a lot of signals in here and it gets frustrating having to re-scan each one down only to find that its a Gravimetric signal. The asteroid belts here aren’t fantastic and Jar would surely complain about the lack of high-end ores.
I do find a “Average Frontier Deposit” that has an interesting gad cloud swirling in the midst of the rocks. Without better science equipment, I dare not venture closer and enjoy the sight from afar. As of my current scans, I have found:
2 x Core Stronghold (Anomaly)
1 x Minor Perimeter Reservoir (Ladar)
2 x Average Frontier Deposit (Grav)
1 x Common Perimeter Deposit (Grav)
2 x Ordinary Perimeter Deposit (Grav)
2 x Unexceptional Frontier Deposit (Grav)
I’m beginning to wonder if there is anything else to be found! I decide to do a quick check on the wormhole exit and when I exit warp… I’m dumbfounded by the emptiness where the wormhole is supposed to be! I had known that wormholes were unstable and had prepared for the outcome but knowing I was “stuck” didn’t made it feel any better.
I now have a new goal.. to find a way out of this without landing myself in serious trouble when supplies ran out. Jar’s gonna have a good laugh when he finds out what has happened!
