I  arrived a short while ago at a refuelling and servicing colony on my way to Colonia known as Eagle’s Landing. It is bathed in the blue hue and slight glow of the Eagle nebula, the base itself located on the first moon of the second planet. The gas giant hangs in the sky, silhouetted by the host star, a deep black as though it is a hole in space. Even now when I see this, from this fixed point of reference, standing upon this dusty rock, it reminds me of why I am out here. It isn’t just about money. It is about these fleeting moments in time when the universe grabs you by the collar and says… ‘Look at this! Look at all of this.’ It is too often the opinion that these barren rocky worlds that are exposed to the void are uninspiring and ugly, but as I stand here I feel like I should take a photograph to capture this moment.

I took my SRV out of its hanger in order to visit the main facility, grab a bite and see if the local bar was a dive or not. Turned out that perhaps not unexpectedly for a place this remote that the bar was not open 24hours and the canteen was really my only hope for sustenance outside standard ration packs. People can call me insane but, Eagle’s landing serve the best Synthetic sausage and mash I think I have had outside of my homeworld. Imperial style spiced gravy, the synth meat has quite a pleasant texture. People tell me real meat is the only way to go, but I lived on synth for so many years, to me, it is not the garbage the richer of this galaxy speak of. It was a moment of pleasure for me to sit back, take a beer and eat. The locals were mostly friendly, though isolation goes both ways, people can be welcoming of newcomers because they are glad of a change from the tedium. They of-course be hostile because they do not want an outsider interfering with their routine of tedium. Eagle’s Landing when I visited was leaning slightly toward the latter. I was not unwelcome, but not exactly greeted with a friendly smile. Maybe it is because I appear so obviously Imperial. Anyway, if you visit, go to building 2 to the main canteen locally called “The Can” and get the synth sausage, its awesome, and don’t worry about the locals unless you feel someone is going to fight you, or buy you a beer. Most likely you will just be left alone.

I will remain here for maybe another day or so before I set back out. I will note down any significant events that occur. I doubt there will be much, thus far I have not seen another commander here other than the local long haul import export people… I do not envy them, but they are no doubt truckers of the hardest metal.

I think I will skip the next outpost on the way to Colonia and head for Gigarin Gate, It is located in Gru Hypue KS-T d3-31.
