General remarks: Praise to Her Imperial Rightness, our Shield and our Salvation!  Preparation made for entry to planetary atmosphere. Landing location chosen in large, unoccupied lake near capital city, approved through preliminary communication with acting-consul Jenks. Captain’s emotional state has been stabilized with only minimal intervention from Medic.

aA12.46.27 X15-f 0.12.46 Varris IV Destroyed Exploded 1 “goose” Red-orange

General remarks: Praise to Her Imperial Rightness, our Shield and our Salvation! 

Descent maneuver was proceeding smoothly when a local life form somehow entered engine shaft despite three layers of shielding, whereupon it proceeded to explode in a flurry of “feathers”. Engine appears to have over-compensated for the disruption leading to a feedback spiral. Still unknown why backup engine and backup backup engine failed to kick in. Engineer managed to single-handedly save all members of crew by using energy blasts from gunnery rig to slow descent in absence of engine responsiveness. In the process, Engineer destroyed Estien Lake, the primary freshwater source for the capital city, Estarte. This appears to be a source of distress for the local inhabitants. Captain has declared she will deal with this after she has exterminated all members of the enemy species in vengeance for Ship.

General remarks: Praise to Her Imperial Rightness, our Shield and our Salvation!  The enemy has been eliminated! Careful targeting with planetwide laser systems has disintegrated all extant members of the “goose” species. Medic requested one be spared for observation, but her request was overruled by Captain. Civilian casualties minimal, only 300 civilians killed. Acting-consul Jenks has requested an emergency meeting, presumably to discuss appropriate honors and rewards

General remarks: Praise to Her Imperial Rightness, our Shield and our Salvation!  Acting-consul Jenks insists squad issue “apology” and offer “compensation” for “dreadful, tragic loss of life”. Gunner has requested to attend funeral proceedings, as Gunner is deeply fascinated by grief. Acting-consul Jenks insists that no squad members attend funeral proceedings.

General remarks: Praise to Her Imperial Rightness, our Shield and our Salvation! 

Gunner attended funeral proceedings despite requests from Acting-consul Jenks to abstain. As the ship brig is currently destroyed Gunner has been restricted to a circle of boulders arranged by Captain. Although the boulders can be easily lifted by anti-grav beam, Captain says leaving the circle will result in Captain using antimatter beam to personally dissolve every joint in Gunner’s body and then she’ll demote her. It is still unclear how Gunner managed to mortally offend both the Astral Hyperchurch and the House of Psychic Nobles. Gunner says she was asked to offer a statement to “the press” and said nothing offensive at all.
Acting-consul Jenks requests all remaining squad members avoid “the press” at all costs.

General remarks: Praise to Her Imperial Rightness, our Shield and our Salvation!  Medic is still upset about not being allowed to keep one enemy goose for observation and is now sulking. Gunner is still in makeshift brig. Captain is sending messages to Central Command but thus far only the occasional conjunction has made it past the auto-censor. Engineer has requested Logger join her on a supervised visit to Cultural Landmark, as she is very bored with no ship to maintain.

General remarks: Praise to Her Imperial Rightness, our Shield and our Salvation! Captain did not express disapproval when permission for the trip was requested. (Captain was distracted by trying to use the antimatter beam on the communicator. Engineer says Captain was not paying attention to basic theology classes if she has forgotten communicator is indestructible). 

Trip to Cultural Landmark a success. We were accompanied by an entire squad of civilians in pladtir-bubbles under strict orders to not touch anything, that means anything. Engineer observed many sculptures including “chairs” and “staircases”. Logger asked Acting-consul Jenks if she could be permitted to observe a civilian ingesting nutrients and one of the civilians accompanying us acquiesced to consume a “cookie” in our presence. Engineer’s morale was greatly improved. Logger plans on asking Captain to allow the rest of the squad a chance to participate as well.

General remarks: Praise to Her Imperial Rightness, our Shield and our Salvation! As Engineer and Logger were returning from trip, two grav-cars swooped into our way in a pincer motion. Logger opened fire, Engineer ripped approaching grav-car in half. Acting-consul Jenks exhibited strange biological reaction in which foam emerged from his mouth and consciousness briefly ceased.

General remarks: Praise to Her Imperial Rightness, our Shield and our Salvation! She who is Holy and Just, Pure and Impeccable!

The grav-cars appear to have been attempting an assassination. Acting-consul Jenks says their destruction is the first act of positive utility we have performed since our arrival. Captain reminded Acting-consul Jenks that we have also eliminated a hostile enemy species. Acting-consul Jenks says the long-term impact on the ecosystem as a result of the goose extinction remains to be determined. Captain says the elimination of traitors, infidels, and hostile species can only have positive impact. She has inquired when the reward ceremony will take place. Acting-consul Jenks says he will consult with local council members and also asks when we are going to do something about restoring Estien Lake.

General remarks: Praise to Her Imperial Rightness, our Shield and our Salvation!  Estien Lake recovery scheme appears to be doomed due to levels of radiation measured in soil.

Medic has discovered mutated life-forms from the radiation in Estien Lake. They appear to be composed mostly of concentric rings of fangs and are supposedly highly toxic to carbon-based lifeforms. Medic’s improved morale from this discovery has had knock-on effects on all of us, even Engineer has started talking about the possibility of tinkering with creating a black hole generator while we are stuck here anyway. Engineer mentioned the possibility of requisitioning materials for this attempt to Acting-consul Jenks. Acting-consul Jenks exhaled and inhaled atmosphere rapidly, and then reminded Engineer that we will be relieved of our mission in two solar cycles. Engineer asked how we would leave the planet if we no longer have a ship. Acting-consul Jenks has promised to arrange something.

General remarks: Praise to Her Imperial Rightness, our Shield and our Salvation!  Captain says she has no faith in Acting-consul Jenks’ ability to provide proper award ceremony. She says she will be arranging to hold a parade to celebrate the elimination of the gooses tomorrow before our departure.

General remarks: Praise to Her Imperial Rightness, our Shield and our Salvation! May She dwell forever in Glory and may all proclaim Her Grace! 

Before we finished the cleanup effort of the debris and corpses from the aftermath of Captain’s parade, we were hailed by our new ship, Her Kindness is More Munificent Than The Vastness of the Stars. This was the ship delivering support forces to Vannis, and we have been granted control of it for the return journey. There were some unfortunate difficulties encountered in maneuvering from the planet’s gravity but nothing we were unable to overcome. Engineer says the matching crater provides pleasing symmetry with the ex-lake, anyway. Captain says she will never do a detour like this again and hopes to never encounter another civilian before she is granted war eternal in a dreadnought.
