Though I gave up hope quite some time ago, it seems my request for a transfer has finally been approved.
This was my fourth request I believe, but I should't complain about that, since I finally got my wish granted.
And hey, extra bonus, apparently they decided to give me a long overdue promotion!
Petty Officer First Class!
Nothing too spectacular, but it seems like a sign that I am once again being noticed by the administration.

[...silence...]

I mean, Jupiter station had it's perks and I loved being stationed there, but after all this time, I think it was time for a change of scenery.
I hope that at Kepler Station I can be of more use than in Sol. There is nothing wrong with chauffeuring visitors, hauling cargo and helping to carry out inspections in the stardock, but I feel like my skills were wasting away.
I miss the old days on Earth where I would go out with my team, relying on our skills and our experience to rescue and recover those poor sobs that decided to wander where they should't have.

[...silence...]

Is that why they selected me for this transfer?

I know Kepler isn't exactly on the frontlines, but being stationed there will no doubt be far more interesting and rewarding than Jove-duty.
If I read my transfer file correctly, they could put me to use in one of the MedEvac teams. That should bring back memories.

If not, I suppose shuttling crew and cargo around Kepler station can't be worse than doing in around Jupiter station.
Maybe I should use my time to brush up on my first aid, though.
Let's see if I can figure out who I should contact on Kepler for a medical refresher course or something

[...long silence, some bleeps in the background...]

Oh, that's right! Old fishface is on Kepler too! I forgot where he transferred to last time! I should have kept in better contact with him..
This might get awkward.. Or it could be a fresh start in our friendship.

[...silence...]
Man, I'm bored.. Kepler is further away than I thought.. how much longer?

sigh

Let's go do some good out there!
