Show these images to anyone and they will recognize them right away: Seyllin I, the planet destroyed little over four months ago by the sheer force of a dying star. Or at least that is the official conclusion. One thing is certain, as good as the images I recorded are, they don’t do the reality justice. It really shows how insignificant we humans are as part of the universe. And how important it is for us to try and understand as much of that same universe as we can so events like this are not repeated.
What brought me to Seyllin was not sightseeing, but the First Seyllin Conference hosted by The Synenose Accord. During this conference several members of the Accord as well as guest speaker Evanda Char presented their findings to the public and sought to spark discussion and heighten interest about the Sleepers. While the whole thing lasted an hour longer than the official closing time never the less it was well worth attending in person. I received a lot of new information — as I have found reliable public sources to be scarce — as well as new food for thought.
And the after party wasn’t too bad either. Got to know Amaterasu, whom aside a friend of Inara’s seems to also be the lover of Reimei whom I’ve lately been talking a bit with at the Last Gate. Apparently Ethan lets them stay there. Speaking of Ethan, I couldn’t help but notice he didn’t manage to make an appearance. Wouldn’t surprise me though if something had come up to prevent that, his busy schedule makes mine look like vacation. Seem I will have to send a message to Evanda though if I ever want to get my question answered. She was kind enough to come to me at the Starscape Lounge but got distracted by an old aquintance whom I assume she hadn’t seen for a good while. Knowing that situation all too well I can’t hold it against her.
