When we first accepted this mission I expected a nice calm journey into the stars, seeking out new life and new civilizations. Instead, I lay here in this damn med bay waiting for the burn bots to finish their job. And yeah – it hurts! Worse yet, I bet the rest of the crew is raiding my stash of space coke while I'm stuck in here! I hope someone remembers to keep stocking the autostill.
The system we wound up in, one that most of my cohorts except Tomi had been to before, is pretty damn weird. While we've found traces of ancient people, there is no one here. At least, not that we have found so far. I still have no idea what's going on with the artificial planetoids and hopefully once we get done exploring it will give us some answers. Did I mention I was shot – and that it hurts? Once we found the tunnel to get below the metal … door? Whatever… we quickly came under attack. I have to hand it to the crew – they handled themselves really well. Me? Not so much. I tried to take cover and then got shot… a few times. Lucky for me Ashley acted quickly and patched me up as best she could while the rest of them moved in. I tried to rally, myself and everyone else – and I got shot AGAIN! This time it was more than we could fix in place with just medkits, so once the bot was dispatched we returned to the ship. And, here I wait.. wondering how much of my stash will be left. Why didn't they outfit these things with morphine buttons?
Obviously my first time around as a captain with this rag tag bunch of heroes didn't go exactly as planned, but it wasn't all that horrible either. I just hope I can heal up so we can figure out what is down that hole. If it's more security bots I'm going to be super pissed. Maybe there's ancient drugs down there!
