Captain’s Blog: Star-Date 6132012; This planet is about to become alive via us. Mankind is about to become gods. I am here with my crew and my new ship Akheilos. We are planting the seeds. Injecting this planet with the building blocks of life. Just think, millions of years from now some intelligent life form may be praying to us. Maybe I will answer them someday. This thought makes downloading my consciousness into a fully synthetic body very tempting.
Captain’s Blog star date 5052012-wp: The mysterious haunting sound has gone silent. I have found no life on the surface except large colonies of a kelp like vegetation floating on the seas. This planet has very thin ozone layer, and its sun has a bad habit of releasing waves of gamma radiation. The kelp seems to eat it up then turn it into oxygen. I have sent my harvesting drones out to gather the resource.
I decided to put my starship in orbit and fit the Solo-Pod for underwater exportation. The drop into the sea from space was rough ride, but the repairs I made earlier are holding up. The kelp has a root system! Long straws pipe oxygen down to the dark sea floor. I hit my lights in the darkness and was amazed to find familiar looking creatures. Thanks to the kelp I can use the Solo-Pod’s water jets to refill my tanks and stay underwater for as long as needed.
