REMEMBER: You have beaten your worst days.
Day 1: As the Seventh Sun breaches the astringent atmosphere of Counterweight, the Kingdom Come flies away through the dark, through the smuggler lanes and hidden ways that will slowly take it towards September. The Chime rests in tense silence.
Day 6: The quiet remains, but it is calmer now. In the cockpit, Orth Godlove rises from the co-pilot chair, resting a hand briefly on the one remaining shoulder of Automated Dynamics Unit 227. He moves through the ship, past the crew quarters where Mako Trig rests his head softly against the metal of a cabin wall, shined to a mirror's polish. The old soldier moves past the common area where Cassander Timaeus Berenice sits, plotting for unexpected eventualities, and towards the ship's ruined hull, where Jaqi Green and Aria Joie start the long work of repairs. Orth grips the handrailing and starts a smile he cannot finish.
Still at the helm, AuDy finishes a process they started long ago. They scan one file, then another, then another. It's a catalogue of their past; a collection of actionable information, a self they never knew they were. And then they see it: Rigour.DAT.
As Ibex’s Righteous Vanguard lands on Counterweight, the Kingdom Come drifts away in a slow arc towards September. The trip is long and cold and quiet, and with a surplus of free time on their hands, The Chime turns towards introspection. Aria Joie is led into a new musical endeavor, Mako Trig unearths new truths about the history September Institute, and Cass considers both of his families.
And in the cockpit, Automated Dynamics Unit 227 scours their databases, looking for an answer to the question: Who are Liberty and Discovery?
