It had, been chaos, The Captain now reflected as she stood, amidst her surviving crew. 6 days had passed since that horrible day. So many gone. So many lost. Again. Was it the ship that was cursed? Was it her? Some other member of the crew? Lost so many… Aurelia Holmes, River Waters, just to name a couple and that’s just who they could currently know about. Several pods were still unaccounted for. Around her, debris had being moved to make shelters, they were salvaging the medical bay, so their Medical Staff would have a place to treat the wounded and the dying. For now the makeshift Medical tent would do. The survivors were in tents, in makeshift shelters from the pods, and what shuttles they had managed to salvage. She knew, that despair would soon set in. Engineering had salvaged what they could from the wreck of the Elysium, and even more stuff was coming in day after day. No chance of fixing this catastrophe this time. No chance.
Her left leg ached. The wound from the piece of metal that had speered it was well bound, and she used a branch as a cane. There was no way of communicating with the rest of the galaxy. They had discovered that rather quickly. The Ion storm had struck on their 3rd day, and had fried the communications balloon they had tried to launch. Phoenix was about to retreat to the Command tent when a voice called out. An ensign from Engineering ran up, panting, stopping a respectful distance from the Captain. “Yes ensign?”
“Sir… the computer is online… its… giving us a weird date.”
“Define ‘Weird’ Ensign.” she considered the salvaged unit from the Main Operations section.
“Sir.. according to the computer, based on the star alignments its 2374…”
Phoenix stared at him, and in silence followed him to the Engineering area, which was a tent with hull plating used as walls and doors, as fast as she could. Things just got worse!
