Who: Arthur Kirland and You
Broadcast: n/a
Action: Various places, see headers
When: 22nd-26th

[The Pathstone might not have been damaged as much as some ships in the fleet, but there were still repairs to be done. And with their former 'super genius' captain (whom he'd never actually got around to meeting, so he'd have to take his crewmates' word on that) missing in action, they were left to Arthur as the engineer. Who knew he'd be so thankful for the augmentation. A space ship was nothing like the engines he'd worked on before.

Arthur was in and out of the ship itself while he worked, either working on repairs inside or ones to the hull and outer systems from the Solace docking port, somewhat splattered and smeared in engine oil. Do excuse him.]

I'd better be able to find some decent tea after this.

Solace: Parks
When he wasn't working on his own ship, Arthur'd taken up a job maintaining a few of the Solace parks. Replacement parts weren't cheap! But on the bright side, Arthur actually liked gardening. Even if these parks all lacked some proper English roses. Still, it was nice to be back in nature after being on a ship for the better part of a month. Well, sort of nature.

He paused from replanting an incredibly generic looking flower to watch the park's resident bird splash around in a birdbath, smiling at the sight. The Brit didn't look up until he heard footsteps behind him, the bird flying off.]

Who: Kai Gracen and Open
Broadcast: Fleetwide
Action: Caprine
When: Now

Look, I think it’s great that we all survived, and that there was some coordination was obviously fundamental to that. So was rescue.

Still, this whole experience brings up a rather pressing question. Do we have a basic battle plan?

[ A pause, and then Kai’s voice dips sardonic, sarcastic. ]

Or at least an entertaining one? Maybe that’s where we failed. Being rescued was more amusing than anything we’d managed to come up with on our own.

We’ll have to do better. Ideas welcome.

[ For anyone that would be looking for him, Kai's in the kitchen with a glass of some kind of liquor he'd gotten on Corona, and the bottle is about half-empty. He really didn't like how close they'd come to losing the Caprine. ]

Who: Erik Lehnsherr and you
Broadcast: Fleetwide video
Action: the Heron, docked on Solace
When: now

[The video feed opens in one of the ship hangars in Solace's hub - the business end, judging by the many crates and boxes stacked against the wall and the audible power drilling in the background. Erik is also there, actually making a fleetwide video intentionally for the first time. He's not interested in making it last long, so he gets right to the point.]

For those who are still repairing their ships or looking into the services here, it's worth mentioning that it's possible to hire power tools and do the work yourself. Most of the shops won't; they prefer to sell their own services. But there are one or two places that hire out their equipment by the hour. Having watched some of the shops work on other vessels, it's just as good an option, and likely cheaper for some.

[He pauses for a moment, shutting his eyes with faint irritation.]

And. If anyone is in need of space-grade duct tape, I have spare rolls... several dozen of them.

[Bulk buying has never been this exciting, folks. Those looking to catch Erik in person will find him walking around the outside of the Heron in the hangar, or working on fixing the twisted, bent parts of the shuttle dock door outside the ship. And yes, that crate of duct tape is there too.]
