You know, I think one of the worst parts about being here is there isn't actually that much to do. The rest of it - being cooped up here with more or less the same group of people for months at a time - isn't all that different from what I do back home, but there's always something to work on or fix or figure out how to improve, and we kinda don't have that here. Working in the engine room's more like maintenance than actually fixing problems and boosting warp yield or trying to figure out what to do to make sure another Xindi attack isn't gonna rip through the hull plating and kill everyone. And fixin' up the washing machines whenever they get burned out kinda isn't as mentally stimulating as cobbling together some makeshift communicator outta the broken remains of an alien shuttle and your phase pistol.

Back when Rex was around, we used to do little projects and stuff to help pass the time. Nothing too crazy or anything, just little things to give us something to do, and I miss that. [Also he just misses Rex in general but. :c]

I guess what I'm saying is if anyone wants to do some kind of project - which will probably need your warden's approval if you're an inmate, just to be on the safe side - I'd be happy to lend a hand or something.

And I think I'm gonna try to build a treehouse in the CES. We all know it can't produce man made stuff, and people go in there and wreck up the place enough and it always looks fine afterwards, but I wanna see if it'll keep something added into it, and a treehouse sounded like a decent place to start off. If anyone wants to help, I'd be happy to have you.
