Justice is being carried out with due compassion. Our projections show the Halmen-Gloria disruption holding at 7 points for several months to come as counseling proceeds. Harvesting projections are likewise lessened in accordance. Our third planet survey work has been delayed. Specialists Brewer, Hanks, and Ostergarten continue in cycle shifts, but Specialist First-class Janssen has been temporarily removed from duty. Our chief navigator has also requested a temporary leave of absence in response to Shuttle 04's loss. I have granted the request to avoid further complications from the unauthorized entanglement which has developed with Janssen. Our Right Doctor Nguyen has transitioned back to the 4th Planet and resumed her work here. The secondary nature of the beta site on the third planet has less critical timing and these disruptions are not expected to have a lasting impact. Our pre-seeding efforts have been completed and our full seed cycling is underway. We were scheduled to complete the first seed-cycle today, but events have delayed completion an estimated six ship cycles or 10 days standard. Second seed-cycle preparations are underway and will launch promptly. Our technicians note that as second-cycle is almost entirely automated we will have our first opportunity for mass liberty & rest. I am consulting with Doctor Nguyen on the best way to handle this downtime in accordance with recent trauma. Ecclesiastic prayer meditation has increased for the crew on an order of 12% as measured by system logs. Our people are dedicated to their work and trying actively to overcome the challenges of human emotion. I have made myself available for special counseling as desired by any of the crew. So far my offer has not been utilized, however. In other reports, stellar cartography has continued their charting of the local stars and planets and have identified a total of 13 possible worlds for seeding within range. These planets are being ranked for their suitability for eventual habitation by prioritizing gravity, rotation, and natural resources. We have the equipment and staff to accomplish all of the 13 options if they remain viable upon closer inspection. I am considering using shuttle crews to perform remote surveying akin to that on planet three once second-seed begins in earnest here. This system is ripe with resources and should prove to be a rich home for humanity's future. Earth stations, we have not heard a QEC response since our awakening from cryosleep in transit. Our messages seem to be reaching other ships entwined with the SOL/Terra L4 RS001. Please return. .
