The Wretched, Day 4
Day 4, salvage ship The Wretched. Flight Engineer Crowley reporting. The engines…I have no idea what to do with them. Most of the day was spent crawling around them again, looking at even more of what’s going on. I swear I walked through the manual 10 times before lunch. I’m even more confused than before. More lost than yesterday. I didn’t mess with anything this time, no sense in ruining it any further. I had just hoped I would learn something, get a better idea of what I fucked up even if I didn’t know how. Instead I had a thought about the other systems, the ones I was working on two days ago, and I got the scanners working. I think. They’re scanning but there’s something that keeps showing up, something big. Is it the monster? Probably, but it disappears at random. Maybe because it’s a plant…does this have to do with the same problem that led us not to detect it in the first place? Or are the scanners broken still? I only hope I can get something else working…maybe external cams…so I can check. I can’t go out there to fix them. It’s still out there. And if they aren’t and there is also something that big out there? I can’t. I won’t. It has to stay out there. This is John Crowley, the last survivor of The Wretched, signing off.
