A New Year, A New Start

6th January 2158:

I have decided to start this New Year by setting down my thoughts and experiences; if things go well I will be acquiring a new ship and starting a new life. My great-great-great grandfather was a merchant captain during the early years of the twentieth century, and his diaries and memoires became something of a reference to the life of a ships’ captain during that turbulent period. I cannot hope to emulate him but I hope that my poor scribblings may be of interest to some future scholar or reader, in piecing together the jigsaw of our own times as we expand through the Solar System.
