The crew consisted of four Dray males and two Dray females, plus me. The small nature of our specialty ship was due to us wanting only certain
minerals and not much else. Total mission time away from base was ?? not even one sleep cycle..
I never pictured myself as a space miner but it was actually enjoyable and I kind of liked the Drays.
Good lizard looking birds one and all.
Upon return I saw a Nordic (Falongsaid) crew getting ready to ship out for another mining mission. One of the females was so good looking it brought
tears to my eyes and a hardness to my soul, or some such thing? Needless to say I leaped at the chance to volunteer my observational skills and once
again was, “welcomed aboard” !
You really do have to be careful with the whole 'telepathic thing' but I had already figured out the knack of only transmitting my focused thoughts
by staring at someone when I wanted to communicate. Emotions were a bit harder to stop transmitting and that may be one of the reasons Layla smiled a
big toothy grin at me when I was volunteering my services..
This ship was a true mid-sized cargo ship that stretched 10 'figure a mile' long (one yowl) and 3 miles high (jute som yowl bone) and with a girth
of close to 6 miles (jute hoke yowl sun) wide, so we were able to transport much of everything a true Inter Galactic USSB Empire (Ooops did I say
Empire?) would need locally at our home base.
(One yowl is 5437.4 feet in a conversion from feet to yowl.)
I kept figuring we would do some kind of mapping mission but after 1.28 billion years of going pretty much everywhere (as one can imagine) they had
some rather detailed maps already that existed in the 'Main'.
Layla and I got along most favorably and all I can say is, you have never had real 100% sex until you are telepathically joined. Feeling what the
other person feels as they feel you is everything and even more than it is cracked up to be. She called me her first virgin which 'I was' in this
new way of doing things !
“I never want to go back to the old way that is for sure”.
The old way is like washing your feet with your socks on. Yep, the feet get wet but half the tactile sense and 99.99% of the real enjoyment of bonding
is lost. I guess you could say lust, love, and procreation are one thing while true bonding is on such a higher level it is not even in the
Speaking of lust ! I was in total lust for the whole trip which thank ?everything? lasted for more than a few hours ! 12 sleep cycles before we
returned to base as we traveled to many different locations; but my sleep schedule was some kind of messed up during the whole mission. I really do
not know how long we were gone that would mean anything to you without a conversion ?
You see my sleep cycles now average once every 36 Earth hours. I am up and productive for 32 to 33 hours and then I start to get sleepy unless I am
doing something quite 'interesting'. . I usually sleep for 3 to 4 hours depending on what I was doing and how strenuous my activities were during my
awake state. During one time period with Layla's crew I was awake for 67 straight hours and when I finally did go to sleep it was for a solid 9
hours! I begrudged the time asleep but my body/mind really needed it! To say being with Layla is 'interesting' is obviously a super understatement!
I am glad I checked the conversion, for I had not realized what kind of sleep habits I now had or how far I could stretch the cycles if the
need/desire arouse.. hahahah Layla slept for 10 hours like a brick, “I win, I win”!
After our return I found that Layla and I were joined telepathically in some sort of a mutual way so that I could always call her name and she would
answer even if separated by galactic distances; all without the obvious staring. Trust me better than a darn cell phone. Our feelings and sights could
be sent no matter where we were or what we were doing. They called it pair bonding.. I just called it good.
With psychic abilities you can skip all the preliminary B.S. of an earthly relationship that we have to go through and truly find what most on earth
would call your soul mate. All because of the ability to psychically connect. Pair bonding between (however many souls) last a life time and is not as
easy to come by as my lucky happy experience. Layla had never pair bonded with anyone either so we were both virgins in the Pair Bonding Department.
If the Bio-Chips brought us together, or a natural mutual psychic attraction, you gotta figure; something made me have the all consuming hots for her.
WHATEVER THE CAUSE, THANKS!
Auto Probes and Droids:
Where things in the Multiverse might be of scientific interest or a hazard to navigation in a given area, the auto Probes updated the data based maps
with constant feed back and the current dimensional happenings in real time which is transmitted through the Bulk via relay Droids to the MAIN. If you
were looking for something in particular, all you had to do was think it and the chip in your brain would tell you everything you wanted to know, with
directions, and even pictures; all with the latest information just as if you were there and watching in person if you so desired . In-depth overviews
or the real nitty gritty with the math and everything could be pulled up, or just the basic overview, depending on how much detail you wanted to
