Source Melchizedek.0294 Approach β Hyi Ascension 00h 25m 45.07036s Declination –77° 15′ 15.2860″ Distance 24.33ly Equinox J2000.0 SOL Year 3781, QEC adjusted [Autotranslator enabled...] Jerome Somerset Pasani, Warrant Master ::: Cryogenic stasis was interrupted for wardroom officers and Specialist Janssen as of 0430. We have drifted slightly off planned course due to unexpected thermal radiation from a celestial event the crew is monitoring. The β Hyi system has been increasingly active in recent months and Janssen believes the solar radiation has unbalanced our infrared venting, causing a 0.002° drift. Over the intervening time, this was enough for autopilot to raise the alarm. Melchizedek is quiet and in good working order. Her full crew of 44 are stowed safely and all systems are green. Lower-fore botany systems show some minor abnormalities which are marked for follow-up. Bot arrays all read nominal with no traceable degradation in standby power. We have slowed our descent to just over 1G in anticipation of work-shifts. This will put us slightly ahead of schedule if we remain at present deltas. Still, we're just over four months from system and there is some debate whether it would be advisable to reenter cryo this close to the destination. Our food-stores are in good order, especially for just the wardroom. Doctor Idjani suggests we remain out of stasis for at least two weeks before being reassessed regardless. QEC has been adjusted for our drift and seems in working order, though we haven't received any new transmissions from relay one in quite some time. If the crew do remain awake in the months ahead, you can rest assured of further updates. Anyone awake out there? .
