Brave New Verse

Captain's Log #3

Well, finally got the whole “red eye” thing figured out. Turns out I was the one that cracked it not the Doc, not that I’m saying I knew I’d be the one to do it or nothin’. So because we’re exceptional the disease takes hold—if the person ain’t already an above average joe then he’s gonna stay the way he is.

We ran into some shit with Reavers. An abandoned boat and we got taken by surprise. Not real sure Reavers got it in’m to make a plan and execute it like what went down on that boat. Seems to me there’s another player…someone who got the jump on us. That, or the gorram cat figured out how to turn into a guy and forgot his boots in the cargo hold. Maybe crazy is a side effect of red eye…

Lance is still sporting his baby blues; kinda a bit worried he hasn’t jumped on the band wagon, it makes him more fragile than the rest of the crew. But that said it’s his choice so I can’t force it on him, wouldn’t be right to. And as always the Dr and I aren’t seeing eye to eye it feels like. Probably don’t help I made fun of him and he got to see it first hand with his ability through Natalie’s eyes. Guess I’d be right annoyed too. But in my defense he is a bit of a dick.

The new ship is pretty outrageous. The Kid really outdid himself.

Captain's Log #2

Been too busy to use this gorram thing—too much happenin’. We’ve got more info on what all this “red eye” disease is and even with all the info I’m at a right loss as what to do about it. Part of me thinks the brass is right and that I should turn myself over to them—less of a danger to myself and the rest of the verse. Other part of me wants to kamakazie into an alliance facility and take’m down with me.

I’m still worried about the kid and worrying about my crew so much I’m right stand-offish with’m. Can’t help but wonder why me. And Why are the Feds doing this.

I feel like it’d be better for the crew if I took off with the cruiser and led a merry chance for the Feds—give the crew the chance to start fresh. Hell, they don’t right see me as their captain anyway. I appointed Shin first mate. Guess the others already thought he was and if they thought he was he may as well be; that means he’s doin’ a might better job at leading than me right now. Not sure I’m pleased about that.

At least I’m findin’ jobs for us, but I’m startin’ to wonder if that is even worth it—I mean the kid could just wire us a boat load of money and we could fly around the verse like some sort of band of super heroes and right the wrongs. That ain’t a half bad idea, ‘cept I ain’t got the first clue how to be the good guy. I started by leaving the men alive that could ID me-that’s something a good guy would do right? Not murder when you don’t got to, but I ain’t even sure that was the right thing—now they’ll have more intel on me. So by doin’ the right thing I put my crew in danger, which in turn don’t make it the right thing. Right?

Seems to me I was better suited a grease monkey.

Captain's Log #1

So gonna give this thing a try, Jesus I’ve never really done a log and not really interested in starting, but feel like this is more of a will. From my understanding the Alliance are coming after me and the kid. So I may need these logs as a kind of monument. Shit, that’s depressin’.

Nobody’s done right by the kid thus far and I’m after fixing that. I’ve had a right messed up up bringing so I’m sure I’ll mess him up too—I mean my Mom literally drove me, well piloted me, INTO battle not from it, but my way of thinking is that if I want anyone in this verse to stand up and do right by me I need to do right by this kid.

I’m not real sure about my other passengers and for all I know I’ll wind up murdered on this ship before the Alliance even gets to me. Shin is probably working for some Tong or off a paid bounty for my head—although I actually like the guy, course that may change if he back stabs (or shoots) me. As far as the doctor…well I was dead set on hating that SOB for turn tailing and running when a kid like Adam was in danger, but I guess I’ve done my share of screw ups so I’m after giving him a chance; also can’t say he’s hard on the eyes. Regardless, if he gives me an excuse one way or the other…can’t actually decide if I would take a bullet for him or put one into him.

I’m also right pissed off about what these Alliance pricks did to me on that station. I don’t know what happened, not sure I want to know even if I could and ticked off I’m too chicken shit to want to find out more. I need to know, but doesn’t mean I want to know. Kind of hope the doc falls through and ends up being just something nice to look at.
