Sent to Pandemonium to obtain a blood sample from target. Planet intel states it will be hostile survival jungle territory. Taking Kellen…the two of us will survey on foot as the tree cover is too dense to take the ship down. Planet is aptly named, Kellen and I encountered lots of hostiles. Target, who we found out is named Michael, assisted us and took us to his “home”. We discussed things the best we could, his Basic was a bit broken, but it was obvious he possessed superior intellect as he began learning the language just after a few hours of working with us. Decided to bring Michael with us, seemed too cruel to leave him on the planet. He acclimated extremely quickly and showcased unreal powers. Also saved our asses a couple times on the planet on the way off…reallllly glad we brought him now. Encountered HUGE hostile on our final click back to the ship, whole team had to disembark ship and help take it down. DT and I synced up to defeat it.

We set course for Fortress 1, but after providing intel about Michael’s telepathic abilities we were rerouted to Fortress 3. I sent a message to Kyle Roman, Defense Minister, asking:
“Did you know”, he responded with “I don’t have time for games. Do I know what?”
“Did you know you’re my biological father”
“Where are you?”
Ronan and I went to dinner again, chatted about Kyle and my family and what it all meant. Nice to have someone to be open with. I know my crew is a lot more informal than most, and I like it that way, but it’s still important for them to see me as somewhat “untouchable”, again Kellen’s advice. That way when the hard call has to be made, they’ll do what they need to do. Anyway dinner was nice, and Ronan eluded to hoping I shared more with him than the rest of the crew, I told him that should be obvious….but kind of wondering if at this point he’s just looking for a good friend. I mean, I’m pretty sure I got friend zoned. He asked if he could meet with Kyle when he showed up, I agreed, but am not really sure what that’s about.
Kyle showed up while we loading up supplies and he and I talked. Turns out he didn’t know that his DNA had been used. I did a blood test in our ship lab and confirmed that we are in fact father/daughter. He actually seemed kind of glad to have family and said that although he’s extremely busy with CyTech defense he does plan to make time to get to know me if I would like to get to know him. His willingness to be a part of my life was actually pretty relieving, I hadn’t realized that having family felt…well, kinda nice. I’m still beyond pissed at bio-mom for her part in this, but on Kellen’s suggestion of giving family second chances I’m going to do just that. Anyway, after Kyle and I had our chat I took him to meet the crew. Thankfully Michael wasn’t there (telepath around Defense Minister = not smart), but the others were. Introduced him to everyone and Ronan asked him if he could “court” me. I’ve got a solid guess as what the hell that means, I really really should have read up more on IG culture…mental note to do that asap. Kyle seemed either pleased or impressed, or both?, at Ronan’s up front nature, hopefully that’s a good thing. Regardless, I’m glad it went smoothly with Kyle, Bio-mom sure fucked up, but at lease Bio-dad seems like a good guy.
