What is Real?

Chief Engineer’s Personal Log
Stardate 1010.1

Last time I spoke to Senkar, 10 years ago now, he told me that if I stayed my current course they would make a murderer out of me. I never imagined his words that day would have an element of truth.

The Void Lords’ realm was unreal, looking back on it none of it seems like it could have been real. From the impossible sky to the invisible bridge, the lift between realms, and the Hall of Worlds. As for the Void Lords themselves, a species living in a realm of which subspace is a part, cataloging worlds to add to their archive could easily be a plot out of a bad novel.

It was real though, I just have to look at the planks from the crates, at the cutlass Jorsh is carrying around to know that, and the worlds in the Hall were not tokens or models but in some way were the planets themselves. And because of that the entire population of one of their cataloged worlds is dead. And I killed them.
