In the beginning…

Imperial Cutter "Temeraire"
Jameson Memorial, Shinrarta Dehzra
64.43 ly from Sol

It’s the foraging for materials that has been the hardest.

When I made the decision to go on this crazy, wonderful adventure I little suspected the amount of sheer slog it would take to get the Temeraire ready for flight.
