Chief Engineer’s personal log
Stardate 917.8

Meditation helps this time. There is that at least. Working to exhaustion helps too.

Talia noticed something is wrong. I suspect she is not the only one. But this is not something I can talk with her about. It is not really something I can talk with anyone on the ship about.

I wish I could spend some time with Adept Varen, but he is over 40 light years away. Or speak with Selak. Text messages across half the Federation are an inadequate substitute.
