vp0e44-κ reports a broad-spectrum radio communication detected from
the direction of VHE-0d3 (idx.51 Pegasi). Signals intensity is dim and
slowly increasing. Manual reconstruction, modal translation, and
transcription for message performed by vp0e44-κ. Requesting automatic
signals reconstruction, modal translation, and transcription.
Initiating systems attention requisition. Relay client 0003
designation assigned.
Signals frequencies listed below. Requesting historical mission
archive read and write access.

                                                          Crew Status
Aster-Α reports having had a disturbing dream again.
vp0e44-κ reports feelings of excitement about the signals discovery.

miniVISR 0x798α reports all crew member assessments indicate sleep
cycle completion, recreation period, and vp0e44-κ's recent signals
discovery have increased crew morale indicators by an average of 12%.

miniVISR 0x798α announces the games tournament round 2.

Crew consensus established the following conditions:
Each round of competition shall require a different game. No
Card-games and chess-alikes unless neither or both opponents are
swarms. The two lowest-scoring contenders will move ahead from the
first 3 rounds. The games shall be ordered in reverse chronological
order from contemporary to ancient.

Round 2 - μ-μ Rocket
Players race to organize supply chains for Silurian remittances being
sent by rocket to competing factions at the Silurian colony on Luna.
The rockets cannot launch until they are full, so each player must
direct the flow of cargo for successive rockets in the alloted time.
The winner is the player who successfully launches the most rockets.
Opponents can interfere with each other by employing the Grumpy, an
orbital laser platform. Opponents can also assign spies to distract
the rocket pilots with surprise Purr attacks, as well as by jumping
upon the control panels to redirect the rockets and steal the cargo
for their own faction.
