CHAPTER 9: Black Shark
It was time.
Calmly I took the glass I was holding and took it to a small counter by the corner of the main room.
That was supposed to be the "kitchen".
It might sound rather...strange for you, who are reading this diary, but that coffee made me remember sensations I thought I had long forgotten.
Have you ever tried synthesized food? It is terrible. Most of it simply tastes like...something wet, without flavor, unsalted. I could even define it...as gross. The worst: I was used to it.
Rarely Marcus allowed me to leave the Section 31. The few times he did, it was because I had been assigned to a mission, just like now, or because I had to go to the Archive, the great façade which hid the Section 31. Officially I worked there, so of course that periodically, there I had to be seen. Since it was an Archive, I would use those opportunities to search for files that could b

CHAPTER 7: "Engineer"
One of the intercoolers of the impulse engines had stopped working, meaning the corresponding impulse engine had to be removed, otherwise it would eventually overheat and damage the ship.
Since there were nine engines like that and a central one, removing a secondary one would not be a problem.
I knew we were not safe. If the pirates located us and decided to enter the asteroid field we would be doomed. That is what I thought at the time, but I had no idea only hell awaited us.
I pulled a tool crate close and started removing that heavy metal box that was the secondary impulse engine, it was as big as a man's torso. If overheated, the damage it could cause would be fatal.
Weeks before, I had studied how those worked. They were also part of the ship's self destruction system, if they were set to overload, a violent explosion would occur.
That secondary engine had a blue fu

Chapter 6: "Commander"
When I got to the main room, the four civilians and Daniela were staring to the criminals I had taken down minutes before.
As soon as Daniela saw me, she rushed closer.
I frowned in confusion and tilted my head trying to understand what was happening.
One of the men from the crew was holding a phaser against one of the pirates, who was spread on the floor, clearly lifeless.
The same with the other pirates.
I took a deep breath and calmly asked.
"Why did you kill them? I knocked them out precisely to not kill them."
The man was desperate.
"THEY WOULD HAVE KILLED US WHEN THEY WOKE UP! THEY WOULD HAVE ATTACKED!!"
I rubbed my forehead.
"If you all followed my orders taking all the phasers and watching each one of the criminals, you would have complete control of the situation."
The man was shaking while holding that phaser.
"You are different fro
