Log entriesEdit

Captain's log, supplemental. 
I swear that sometimes news travels faster than light. And the news from the Imperial capital is certainly unexpected. Our mission remains the same, no matter who's sitting on the throne. But in the space of a few weeks, we've seen four different emperors. This new one certainly sounds capable. As my first officer is fond of saying... Fascinating.
