A Taste

Commander’s Log (November 2, E3032)

Rumors of recent apparent interceptions has caused many raised eyebrows from the outskirts of the alpha colony on Terminus along with scoffs from a few of the more experienced in the IS hall. The most recent intelligence gathered suggests that this may be a valid report of interception of our communications, and as such I have ordered a precautionary encryption be placed on any and all official records. The Work-Class take this as proof of the rumors they have heard and a threat to transparency; the IS insists the precautions are unnecessary and a dangerous boon to paranoia. I have determined that the precautionary encryption remain in place only until such time that the possible interception is disproved. In the highly unlikely event an UCB or PEL is found or the interception is proven, discussion with the IS will be necessary to decide the proper course of action.

3 years 47 days.

This is a glimpse inside the world of Project Orbit: an entry from the professional log of Commander Franklin Brewer. Faced with the bleak and harshly unknowable future of the colonies, he is the acting executive branch of the fragile society that dots the Terminus system.

As time goes on I'll be posting more and more about the history of Terminus, but I'll leave this post as just a brief snippet. More to come, I promise.
