Alert 03:52:15 – 12.02.2185

All COMS: This is Maxim Akihiko Broussad, Communications Satellite Continuance Managing Project Officer L2 onboard the Shinkai Maru 5. The ship’s LMO has suffered a violent dissociative identity disorder event that has left us without his assistance (along with the only survival pod) somewhere in the 200+ Megaparsecs region. Although we have full power, life support, coms, and supplies, we have no jump assistance at this distance. We have no navigational data. If you can read us, please advise.

All COMS: Be advised of dangerous Living Modified Organism (LMO), Transgenic Fish/Humanoid known as Spegg [image attached]. Considered dangerously unbalanced. Be informed that the LMO has suffered a violent dissociative identity disorder event and is responsible for the subsequent marooning of host vessel in unknown region of deep space without jump assistance. May be seeking assistance from a Chandra-class Survival Pod. Spegg ejected from Deep Space Explorer Shinkai Maru 5 and is currently adrift.

Alert 05:15:34 – 12.03.2185

As Acting Captain of his host ship the Shinkai Maru 5, I authorize any authorities, security details, or bounty hunters to incarcerate the Transgenic Fish/Humanoid known as Spegg on sight. He is a ship deserter, as well as a violent, deranged saboteur. If capture or incarceration appear difficult, I authorize you to dissolve him with extreme prejudice.

Alert 09:38:14 – 12.03.2185

All COMS: This is Maxim Akihiko Broussad. I am a Level 2 Communications Satellite Continuance Managing Project Officer for JAXA (Japan). Currently, I am onboard the Shinkai Maru 5 Deep Space Explorer. The ship and I have been the victim of an un-planned, un-authorized hyperspace jump with no pre-set exit vector. The assisted jump was illegally executed from Earth orbit by the ship’s LMO, who subsequently abandoned the ship in the only available survival pod. We are without navigational information for these reaches of space and appear to be in a stationary position just outside the event horizon of a supermassive black hole. At present, we are waiting for any communications that may help us define our location in space and set a course toward jump assistance that can return us to Earth orbit. Please advise.
