Today myself and twenty other men and women left Earth on our four year interstellar journey. For the first time in humanities history man is going to leave the confines of the solar system and leave our footprints on an alien world. Our mission is simple, travel to the Gliese 581 system and on Gliese 581 g, a planet that is like Earth in nearly every way. Our job is to collect samples and study the effects of prolonged exposure to the alien but habitable atmosphere. Simple. I'll update later, currently running tests on samples retrieved from probes already on the surface of Gliese 581 g

Due to an unforeseen problem occurring with life support myself and nine other scientists and important crew were placed into a forced suspended animation state 3 years ago to preserve oxygen and other vital supplies. When I and the others awoke we found that the reaming crew had all perished due to unknown causes. Life support was fully functioning suggesting there had been no malfunction in the first place and, supplies had not been touched. It's as if they were keeping us from something. I ran some tests on what was left of the crew and found no reason for them to have deceased. This has left a few of us unnerved by what happened when we were asleep. I'll update later, currently trying to understand what happened in those 3 years we were asleep.

Sorry for the lack of updates. Recently the crew have taken a turn for the worse. Suspicion and paranoia have taken over. The death of ten crew have began to haunt us and keep us fearful of every one aboard this ship. The captain assures us we are but months away from Gliese 581 g and that he himself has no idea what occurred while we were asleep. He and his flight crew seem different than when we met before the 3 year gap. Although they were frozen with us they were the last to do so, protocol apparently. This means they could be suffering from what the others did, before they died. The rest of the crew are also slipping into madness. It seems that whatever killed those ten people has either returned or was frozen with us. Lying dormant. I myself feel a hate towards the others. I feel as though, soon, I will commit acts that will deem this mission a failure. Yet I somewhat want this. I will update later, I have to administer the crew Valerian tablets to calm them down.

This expedition was a lie. The whole fucking thing was a lie. It's been twenty one years. Twenty one fucking years of floating through this black nothingness. That thing, that thing that killed those people, it came back. I went to sleep again. I dreamed dark dreams. I heard them. I heard the rest of them screaming, calling for help, no one came no one. It killed them. It killed them all. I couldn't allow the thing to get me. I disabled all the other sleeper pods, when they tried to sleep it would not let them. When I awoke I put them all in the Air Lock. Sent them into the darkness. I survived. Soon, soon I will go home. Find home. I will...Someone outside, I see faces on the glass, they are calling my name, I see you...I can see them floating through space, calling me...//:[FILE CORRUPTED]://

I found it. I found Gliese 581 g. it's beautiful it's //:[FILE CORRUPTED]:// I see now, I see why the others had to die. They had to perish. Mankind has no right to spoil another world, another //:[FILE CORRUPTED]:// They were weak. Here I am a god. I am //:[FILE CORRUPTED]:// My time has come to fade with the others. I have seen this world. I have been blessed with it's majesty. My body is weak from my in and outs of prolonged sleep. I have no way to land //:[FILE CORRUPTED]:// I will orbit forever. Gazing at it. Protecting it.
