What an exciting day! My first trip with this new cargo vessel, a brand new hyperdrive and lots of space - more than my previous one had! Enough talk, en route for the first pick up. Just one short jump away.
This can't be happening! Just a few seconds of use and the hyperdrive malfunctions. It blew up and most of the ship's systems are dead. There is no secondary power supply. I'm stranded in unoccupied territory. Sending a distress signal...
No answer to my distress call yet. Keep trying, but losing energy fast.
Not sure if I've been here for hours or days, but feeling quite lonely. I must be in the middle of nowhere, no answers to my distress calls...
This will be my last entry. Life support systems are at critical. It's bitter cold and oxygen level is low. I should have spent some more money on backup systems. Captain P., out.
