F3 Epsilon Station Status Log

Universal Date Code: Mu 6893
Lt. J. Briggs

Report on loss of Epsilon Station:


Log begins. Lt. J. Briggs, service number 432-89045-A, recording.

Epsilon station suffered a catastrophic failure in its Quantum Inversion Reactor at 20:00 hours, local station time. Instruments indicate that magnetic wave pulse function were taken offline for two minutes. This caused instabilities in the exotic matter at the core of the reactor, normally corrected by the magnetic wave pulses. 


Instruments do not indicate the cause for the wave pulse generator to have gone offline. However, the magnetic wave pulses resumed functioning after the two minute interval. Unfortunately, there was a frequency variation in the wave pulses that led to catastrophic and irrevocable cascade reactions of the exotic matter. The order to evacuate the station was given at 20:05 hours. The station was successfully evacuated using escape pods and personnel shuttles by 20:10. Epsilon station exploded at 20:12.

Engineers Kimball and Richardson were questioned, but report that while they noted the failure of the magnetic wave pulse, they didn't have adequate time to examine the cause of failure. The cause will never be adequately investigated due to the loss of the station, but recommend examining all Type III Quantum Inversion Reactors for design failures or maintenance fatigues. End recording.


"I can't believe they bought it. You're one lucky bastard, Kimball. Next time I tell you not to redirect the mag wave pulses to heat your food, you better listen to me."
