Engineer Journal Entry 371
The flora around the Exodus is starting to mutate. The once patchy green and yellow plains around our landing site have started to give way to a very aggressive blue grass species. While it is quite pleasing to the eye, it is also discerning because it is not the only change. The trees are starting to get thicker and darker in color. While some of the originals are still holding on, many are entering a phase of unprecedented growth and change.
I believe this to be caused by the emanations from the gleam engines on board the Exodus. However, it may also be from the stasis drive we have constantly running to suspend the new colony ship while it is being built. I haven’t been able to detect any oort or petrol leaks from either, so we can rule out physical contamination. I have made the search one of my top priorities, but only time and testing will tell.
On an unrelated note, the town is starting to really come together. Our fields are producing in excess and our colonists are finally finishing some of their projects. This is opening up hands to work on some of our more ambitious projects! I look forward to what the next couple of years will bring.
