OK, I’m sore.
We had the Zero-G races today. Everyone joined in; I guess everyone gets a bit bored in Jumpspace.
I didn’t do as badly as I had expected; I wound up in the top half at least. Saahna won, which I expected, and Dr. Korvusar came in second. I’m sure the fact that they were the ones who set up the course had nothing to do with their win. I still think they had a hidden shortcut somewhere.
The surprise to me was Gherome Kapar; he came in third. I found out later that he had lived in a belt for a while, before moving to Fugitak. I guess that’s why Fugitak may have seemed like an improvement to him.
Kyla also did surprisingly well. Well, she wasn’t in the top half, but she navigated the course easily, squealing in delight the entire time. She’ll be a natural.
Jeorge wasn’t so lucky. He got sick almost immediately and refused to go into the Cargo Bay again. Atana stayed with him so didn’t participate either. Of course, being eight months pregnant probably had something to do with her bowing out as well.
Jami stayed with Amada, who she managed to coax through the course, but it didn’t help her time. Do’rex made his run but didn’t seem that interested and headed back to the bridge almost immediately.
Varan had more trouble with the course than I had expected. He supposedly had his Zero-G cert; it’s kinda necessary for a Steward to be able to get passengers to evacuation pods if something bad happens, but he acted like he hadn’t been in zero-g before. I’m going to have to talk to him about that.
So yeah, I came in 4th out of 9. I’ll take it.
The rest of the day was taken up with a “celebratory” dinner. I took the Kapars on a tour of the ship (with enough gravity returned to the Cargo Bay to let us through to Engineering) and they seemed to enjoy it.
Beyond that not much happened today. So yeah… we’re in Jumpspace.
