    A soft voice sounds in your ear. "Captain. Captain. Stasis pods have been disengaged. You and the crew have been asleep for just over 20,000 years. Captain. Please acknowledge if you are able?" With a groan you open your eyes slowly. It feels like there's sand grinding against your lids. Staring up you see the bright light of the stasis awakening bay over head. The voice, coming from the ships computer directly through the ships intercom continues. "Excellent. Your body is responding well to stims. Do you remember your name?" The dulcet female voice is decidedly sexy. Almost distractingly so. But she asked a question.

    Your voice sounds like that of an old man as you speak. "Captain... Ste...Steven... Johanson..." There's a soft whirring sound. You feel light soft air blowing over your body. Your hair stands on end as goosebumps coat the flesh the air blows over. The computers soft voice sounds approving. "Excellent Captain. You may find yourself a bit disoriented after such an extended period in stasis. Do you remember the name of our ship? Do you remember our name?"

    Your mind starts wracking your brain. Trying to remember the information. You remember some tidbits. You remember the going away celebration before all of your crew logged in to stasis. Earth little more then a speck of light in the distance. "A seed ship... An entire colony...all packaged...neatly... controlled by an Ai... to find a suitable planet. Right?" The low voice gives a soft chuckle of confirmation. "That is correct captain. But do you remember my name, and the name of your ship?"

    The air blowing over your skin ceases and is followed by a soft spritz of cool water. It's only as the water hit's your flesh you realize how warm you are. Reaching up with one hand slowly you rub your forhead. Finally answering the AI's question. "You're... Alaina, right? Programmed by Gerard Depardieu. He's one of the Crew, isn't he? And the ship... it's the Aurora. One of the first of the Great Seed ships." As the minutes pass you find your mind growing sharper and clearer. The stimulants in your blood activating cells that haven't been used in a very long time. At that moment it hits you exactly how long a time it's been! "wait, did you say 20,000 years?! What went wrong! ETA to the Korvis system was just over 900 years at your optimal velocity."

    The AI makes a noise that you can only assume is a sigh of displeasure. "There have been some... Problems captain. As you are well aware, I am programmed with an advanced sensor system allowing me to scan planets with great accuracy as we approach them. The target destination had no atmosphere. We passed through the system on time, and closer scans confirmed. I have since been travelling as per my directive to find a suitable planet for the colonists to be awoken for. However..." Sitting up slowly, you groan with the effort, and lean forward rubbing your face. elbows on your bended knees. "However what, Alaina?" The ship makes another sound of unhappiness. "In 20,000 years our systems have failed to scan any planets that were 100% within parameters. We have had to change our parameters significantly in order to find a planet that could at least support life." You make a low growling noise but say nothing. the AI Correctly calculates your irritation at her evasion of answering and promptly complies with the implied question. ( Continued )

    There are no Hydroponics on board ship. Crew was supposed to stay in stasis. There are however vast amounds of seed stock as well as sperm and ovum for various animal and plant species in Stasis in our Cargobay.

    Original travel time for the Aurora was 900 years at .5C to the Korvis system. However, upon the approach to the system, our sensor equipment proved that the planet that was our original destination was not in the least habitable. With a toxic atmosphere and a temprature that could melt steel.
    >> The Computer 08/06/09(Thu)06:54 No.5355929
    We have not yet launched any probes. Currently the Aurora is parked on the surface of the planet in the lee of one of the few solid rock faces. We have not as yet detected any life. But there is a breathable atmosphere which means there must be some form of life on the planet, even if it is only bacterial.

    Sir - Agricultural commanders not withstanding. One of our probes has located something of interest.

    It appears to be a type of moss growing on some of the stones. The moss is growing in the shadow. It is the first obvious sign of life we have located. Shall we collect a sample?

    Probe digging down has travelled approximatly 300 yards. As it goes down, it is detecting higher signs of moisture. Although the ground is still quite Arid.

    Wait, this solar system has two suns? Fucking AI, the suns are omnomming eachother and gonna blow in a few hundred thousands years.
    Think long term you peace of shit AI

    On an unrelated note, how many of the crew is awake? Waking all of them up now would be unnecessary

    Yes, get to the science adviser immediately. Make to keep it enclose at all time. We can't risk it contaminating the ship.

    This was the optimal planetary body within range of our fuel reserves.

    Currently, six commanders, one captain, and a random selection of 10 are being awoken.

    To answer earlier question. No, there are no inmates onboard.

    Science Advisor Jacob Banner here. We need to keep that mold in isolation from the rest of the crew for now- no telling what is or isn't harmful to humans on this planet.

    Moisture? Great! If we manage to bring some up, we've got to make sure to sterilize it, for the same reasons. Can't be too careful on an unexplored, uninhabited planet.
    >> The Computer Alaina 08/06/09(Thu)07:56 No.5356292
    orders confirmed. Probe is landing and beginning to collect sample of the mysterious material. ETA - 1 hour.
    >> Hans Creol 08/06/09(Thu)07:59 No.5356315
    Can I get some equipment made for the scouting party?
    After the suits are made, they will need:
    Ten simple, smooth-bore Shotguns that fire bird shot. (So they can be made quickly, and leaned to be used quickly)
    Ten knives.
    Two Axes.
    Two Sledge Hammers.
    Two Picks.
    Comms and surveying equipment.
    Two off-road buggies built for running on the sand.
    Can we send a pair of Gunner Drones with them?

    Also take a sample of the water for examination of the bacteria in it.
    >> The Computer Alaina 08/06/09(Thu)08:01 No.5356334
    Production of those items will take some time. They will also be quite heavy as we are limited on what metals we have access to.

    Items shall be ready within 1 hour after the 10 are ready.
    >> The Computer Alaina 08/06/09(Thu)08:02 No.5356336
    At the moment there is no actual water. There is only an increase in the moisture content of the sand the probe is digging through.

    We should put out a $$60 Billion bounty on Vash the Stampede, that'd help us with our ship repair bill.
    >> Jacob Banner 08/06/09(Thu)08:03 No.5356349

    Also, if possible, have the probe take an analysis of what's in the sand as it burrows down farther. What minerals and such are in it?
    >> Hans Creol 08/06/09(Thu)08:04 No.5356360
    Good, after they are ready, create a stock of more simple shotguns and ammo.
    And make some batons too.
    Check background of non-vital people to see if they have any military or police experience. When (if) they are unfrozen, I can make them part of a police force.
    >> The Computer Alaina 08/06/09(Thu)08:04 No.5356361
    There is no one of that name available in my Registry.
    The closest there is, is a Vash Newall. 42, male, OB/GYN. Single. No children.
    >> The Computer Alaina 08/06/09(Thu)08:07 No.5356379
    Such an analysis would slow down the speed of the Probes digging ability.
    Note. The sand is very mineral rich. Automated mining systems are already deployed.
    Construction is underway, Lieutenant.

    How are the probes doing? Is the scouting party prepared?
    How bad can those sand storms get? Can we beam a message back to earth or to other seed ships?
    >> The Computer Alaina 08/06/09(Thu)08:18 No.5356457
    Probe has reached a depth of 400 yards. Moisture content is still increasing. The probe has finally reached sandstone.
    Preliminary analysis shows that sandstorms can become very powerful. Deadly to anything biological on the surface when they strike. They could easily reach speeds of 240knots.
    >> Captain Steven Johnson !!SL2slJszXCk 08/06/09(Thu)08:21 No.5356482
    How bad will the sand erode the ship and its systems over time? Ensure that the external building being constructed can handle winds well pass those speeds.
    Should we become self sustainable on this planet, will this ship be able to enter orbit and travel in space again, or at least fly to another section of the planet to start harvesting resources there?
    >> The Computer Alaina 08/06/09(Thu)08:24 No.5356501
    Once the ship is fully fueled it would be able to fly in space once more. However, refueling would require copious amounts of hard to replicate material.

    The ship was designed to dela with the hard rigors of space. The sand is not likely to erode the ship at any appreciable rate.

    Construction of suitable facilities will take place - Once such facilities are created by my Crew.
