Hope here… I took a much needed day off today and leisurely strolled on the island after learn… learning about Yu. I don't know what I was doing. I was just walking and thinking. Should I even bother trying anymore? Not only am I trying to brave the elements and starvation, but I'm up against aliens and infected with an unknown bacteria as well.
I guess what I'm trying to say is I didn't have the courage to put an end to it all myself. Is it really more courageous to take life head-on because I didn't have the nerve to jump off the cliffs or use of my survival knife one last time? I have no idea.
Thankfully the Sunbeam is coming, otherwise I would be here for the long haul.
Flora note: The seeds of the bulbo trees have a very high water content and also provides some nutritional value. They remind me of coconuts back on Earth. I took a sample of one, but I need to be mindful of space.
I can see why our previous visitors holed up here.
I found a strange purple tablet in one of their bases that is clearly alien tech. I wish I could say this surprised me more, but at this point — it didn't. I'm not exactly sure what it is used for at this point, but it seems to be inert and safe to carry with me. Perhaps if I knew Yu were alive then I would be more enthusiastic.
I don't know how I am to get over this endeavor. It feels as if part of me as died already…
Listening to the logs, the people here previously were Degasi. Just like us, they were obviously trying to make a profit, but from mining and trading raw materials.
I wish I could analyze everything here more efficiently, but I am overwhelmed. There are so many questions about this planet, but now the Degasi, in a deeper underwater base at that? So much has happened in a very short amount of time. I don't even know where to begin. I won't be around much longer to find out, so there's not much point in stressing on all of this right now. I suppose the best course of action is preparing for the Sunbeam's arrival. I need to gather up the special enzyme Peeper, my samples of plant life especially the brain coral, and quarantine all of my inventory. I can't take any chances.
I will say that one of Bart's logs was particularly worrying. He mentioned he was so ill that he was having visual hallucinations. I can only presume he was infected with the same bacteria, which means what I have is likely fatal. His log suggests the other two members of the group met their end as well, whether it was from illness or trauma is unknown.
At least I know I am up against time itself. It's possible that the Sunbeam's medlab can synthesize a cure, but I am not optimistic. I just want off this planet.
I better be off.
I saw a cave system at the base of the island. I will explore that and then regroup at the life pod. There is nothing for me here. I suppose it's possible that Yu got on board the ship according to Keen's log, but the odds of survival without a radiation suit are zero and I'm not even factoring in the quantum detonation in the area.
I'm off to the caves then returning to my life pod to figure out my next step. Hope out.
The vent, strange Peeper, the violent alien underwater near Keen's location, the purple tablet, and this gate must be all connected somehow. I have not seen those warping aliens on the island. Did they build it?
There… there seems to be no way to activate it. I guess I'll just have to keep my eyes open. Sunbeam won't believe this. If nothing else, its location can be used as a bargaining chip if I need it.
