Start log. This is Project Leader Dr. Armon Eminus, overseeing the first official test of the Aglidica Temporal Avulsion Craft, here on referred to as "ATAC-1." The date is October 23rd, 3428. After years of research and development, I believe our objective to induce time travel through mass manipulation will become reality. I'm aboard the ATAC-1 with pilot Marc Suremn and co-pilot Adam Menimot. The 17 other members of the project team are in orbit around Kolnami III, surveying what is sure to be another groundbreaking achievement for the Aglidica Innovations Corporation. We're all ready to begin here, Marc, spin up the engines and I will walk you through using the Temporal Distortion Drive. Log, begin survey mode.

[10.24.3428|07:08:40] Scanning for life signs... 0 of 20 members detected.
[10.24.3428|07:10:01] Scanning for ATAC-1... Not found.
[10.24.3428|07:11:58] Scanning for Survey Station Kolnami III... Unrecoverable debris found.
[10.24.3428|07:14:22] Scanning for deceased crew members... Unrecoverable debris found.
[10.24.3428|07:25:06] Analyzing spacetime anomaly:
-Scans indicate a volatile flux of various cosmic energies within the rift.
-Attempts to probe spatial and temporal coordinates within the rift provide impossible results.
-Visual analysis shows numerous stellar objects, many of which are host to colonized planets, accelerating towards rift epicenter at high speeds.
-Preliminary casualty predictions are in the billions.
-Trend analysis show that rift will stabilize within 90-105 days.
-After stabilization, space will be inhospitable and impassable for a considerable radius around rift epicenter.
[10.24.3428|08:43:19] Salvage mission complete.
