Transmission Log - Orestes
Author: Green

---------------------------------------------------------------
Auto-generating preface...

  A log from GREEN. He recounts his current affair with PINK.

  PINK has been spending less and less time around him since their
  first coital encounter.

  More worryingly, he speaks about PINKS desire to 'get rid' of
  NAVY. I have no record in my audio logs of such an utterance.
  Either PINK has found some way to circumvent the surveillance
  systems, or GREEN is lying here. I will increase the threat-level
  across the Orestes and hope that this situation diffuses itself
  soon. In the meantime, perhaps it is worth reexamining my
  suggestion regarding PINK's reassignment. Perhaps to the Electra
  outpost, where she could still research crystal activity.

-END-OF-PREFACE-
---------------------------------------------------------------

  She's not so bad, I suppose. PINK, that is. We argue constantly,
  but I've started to find those arguments refreshing. It feels so
  good to shout a little and express some aggression. I think it's
  the same for her. Most people get upset when arguments get
  heated, not her. It helps that we mostly argue about 'academic'
  things, and keep personal questions out of it. It turns out she
  knows a lot more about science than I first gave her credit for.
  I've been learning from her.

  Anyway, I suppose it was inevitable that the arguments would lead
  to something more. We've been sleeping together. In retrospect, I
  don't know why it took so long for it to happen. We've been the
  only people on this rock for more than two years now. I guess
  they selected us for this mission in the first place because of a
  low sex-drive, but low is not 'zero'. I think for her the sex is
  mostly something to quell the boredom, but for me it has meant
  more.

  She doesn't like NAVY at all now. I don't mind the guy. A little
  simple, but mostly in a charming way. She wants to have him
  replaced. I don't think he can be replaced though. He's been here
  so long, and I now believe he understands the crystals more than
  we do. He knows the terrain of this planet so well and he knows
  the quirks of the Orestes outpost like the back of his hand.

  I hope she doesn't really want to get rid of him. I'd probably
  end up taking her side if there was some kind of conflict. I
  don't want to lose her now.
