Because inventrix‘s Mastodon instance is tootplanet, and because Catterfly has been making a tootplanet a day, I’ve been writing a series of little 500-character-or-less survey logs of planets for an exploration ship.
There’s a thread of them here: https://tootplanet.space/@aldersprig/79825
And here’s one
Star Log, Sec. 7, Sub. 13
We came upon a lovely system-2 planets in our search parameters, orbiting close together.
The further one sported vast ruins, but only around the equator. They were taller than anything back home, almost belting the planet-but no radio signals, no signs of current occupancy. We sent several probes. We may send a team when we loop back around.
The closer planet showed life just above stone-age. We sent a stealth probe, nothing else.
