January 18, 2012. Preliminary checks confirm field integrity. Standing by the Captain's order for cycle and departure.
Proud of my men for their work, long hours, personal sacrifice. This jump back a mere 18 days will validate all our theories of sliptime. We will greet the future and the past as eager and unrivaled explorers, conquering heroes of time-space and idea-legend.
Getting ahead of myself. Still excited we caught the pod January 1; in moments we'll cycle, the field will release us back in time, and we'll emerge as the world's first time travelers.
—Aye, Skip; cycle aye!
