    Since the link was only about 8 sectors from the Sol System, however, and since there existed a secondary link which would deposit us in the immediate vicinity of Arth in a matter of hours, I foolishly decided to risk an encounter rather than spend weeks in hyperspace. The more skilled the Navigator, the less time it will take and the less risk your crew will face. Needless to say, it is highly confidential and is, if you will excuse the old cliche, For Your Eyes Only. Text Window: Object Constituents: Displays the composition of the alien vessel. As it happened we chose initially to trrravel in a downssspin dirrection with a 14 degree corewarrd orientationnn. In front of each of you is a Captain's Technical Reference Manual.
