2114/11/10 second engineer's log // six months have passed since landfall and our mining operations are well under way. i've heard rumours that the europium deposit is unlikely to have formed naturally, although no one dares to say this out loud. who could have left such a structure behind, on a barren rock like this? anyway, i have other things to worry about. our quantum racks have seen a considerable loss in performance again, more than usual fluctuations can account for, and our eigenstate modulators are already struggling to compensate. if we run out of processing power, we could be in serious trouble.
