Robin's log, 3/13

We've only had one new arrival since my last entry, I-pin. I'm still trying to figure out what ties us all together. What is it about us that someone would bring us here? The biggest commonality we have is Earth. We're all either native Earthlings, or were brought here from Earth, or both. Another commonality is that we're all fluent in English. I think both of these are important; it's significant that this colony was clearly built by and/or for English-speaking Earthlings, most likely humans. So far we've been grabbed from a range of time of a little over 700 years... I'm not sure whether to think that's a big window or a small one, and I don't know whether it's significant. I find it interesting that most of us were brought from a very narrow eight-year period, from 2006-2019. My gut tells me that has to mean something, but I don't know what it could be. It's too early to say whether there are any other significant patterns, or any patterns at all.

On our survival here on the colony: unless a whole horde of new people show up very soon, I don't think we've much to worry about on the food front. The kelp and snails are thriving, although the prawns never hatched. The chickens are laying nicely, and we've got a nice flock of chicks as well. We've been getting greens, and the first of our fruits and grains and beans will be ready soon. It'll be time to collect seeds for the next generation of plantings soon as well. A note, since I didn't think of it and someone else might not: we don't have bees, so we need to remember to pollinate by hand.

We had a bit of a setback when the chickens somehow managed to escape and ate a significant portion of our youngest sprouts, but I think we'll survive. No one's yet owned up to leaving the door open. ...Mysteriously, within the same few hours in which the chickens escaped, one of the chicks seems to have turned into an adult rooster. It seems likely that the two events are related; in any case, I'm completely baffled. If anyone can shed some light on this, I'd appreciate it. ...And does anyone know where a bent, rubber-ended lever came from, and how it ended up putting a dent in the corridor wall outside of the hangar? ...It's probably not important.

Escape efforts continue, slowly. Still no reply on the radio. Isis tells me the effective communications range is about 20 AU, so... we're looking at other objects in the Kuiper belt. Other colonies or passing ships. I'm planning on building a ship, starting with making and storing the fuel, hydrogen and oxygen. ...It's going to take a while. Cyril attempted to locate the signature left by certain types of teleportation devices, to see if we could figure out the location of the device used to bring us here. No luck. Shadow's been looking for the source of the field that prevents him from teleporting away, including x-raying the entire tether. No luck.

On the subject of Shadow the Hedgehog: be careful around him. I don't think he cares one way or the other about the well-being of anyone else on the colony. He has and may attack without reason or warning, and when used as a weapon that Chaos Energy of his is not something you want to be on the receiving end of, trust me.

Shadow, I assume you're reading this. I don't know if you thought that was funny or if you really could care less, but I repeat: don't do that again. Do not attack me or anyone else on this colony in any way or for any reason. This is the only warning you're going to get.
