My name is Starcrescendo. I came from a city named Buffalo which resided in the state of New York within the United States of America on the continent of North America on the planet Earth within the Milky Way galaxy in what we called the Local Group. I hope this gets to someone. I found this transmission channel and am broadcasting my travel log in an attempt to chronicle my journey home – or if I don’t make it home – in hopes that my last thoughts shall somehow make it to my family. I wonder if anyone will ever read this?
I woke up this morning lying on the ground outside the wreckage of a Spacecraft. I have no idea how I even ended up here. I remember spending a quiet but uncomfortably hot evening at home watching television. I may have drifted off to sleep, but then I woke up here. Seems like getting into a Spacecraft would be something I’d remember.
I am on a strange planet appearing to have fallen out of the Spacecraft. I luckily have a Spacesuit that is allowing me to breathe normally. I fear without this I would not have woken up alive to begin with. I also owe my life to this Spacecraft that took the impact of the crash. It is badly damaged. I’m not sure if I can repair it. As luck would have it, I am equipped with a number of tools that might help me to do that. They seem intuitive enough to use, although I’m sure I’ll settle into the particulars in due time.
The first tool is a Jetpack. I never thought I’d see one of these in real life! This model doesn’t even need refueling, but it can’t be used for too long at a single time.
The Spacesuit which I mentioned seems to have an internal temperature regulating system so that I don’t burn or freeze while within it. It is also equipped with a Life Support system which shall hopefully keep me alive.
The Spacesuit has some sort of device on the right arm. It says it is a “Multi-Tool” and is indeed a combination of multiple tools including a Mining Beam, a simple Scanner that identifies locales and items nearby, as well as a Visor which identifies flora and fauna. It’s all very futuristic.
I ran around a bit and played with the new tools just to get an idea of how they work. Normally I love playing with new tech but since I’m just trying to survive at this point I just need to know the basics.
The Mining Beam will be particularly useful. Apparently, the Life Support system needs to be continually recharged in order to function. The local flora produces Carbon (C) which the beam can extract into a form I can recharge the Life Support system with. It seems like there are bountiful resources of Carbon (C) and Iron (Fe) all over, but I don’t want to cause damage to this planet so I will be sure to only take what I need.
The world here is way different than back home. The air seems lighter, and there are hardly any trees around, just plants. Not a structure or person in sight. I wonder what happened on this planet?
While looking around the Spacecraft for clues I found a strange red orb. I did not understand what it was trying to tell me, but I understood that its name was “Atlas”. It shined brightly and spoke to me without making a single noise. It spoke to me within my mind in a strange language, somehow interrupting and overriding my thoughts. Then it disappeared just as fast as it had appeared. It was kind of scary. Is this an alien?
I need to find out where I am and how to get home. I found crafting schematics within the Exo-Suit (that’s what I’m calling my Spacesuit from now on) for the items I will need. To fix the Spacecraft, I will need to apparently travel to across the planet to obtain various resources.
