I have been on board the PRS Exsuscito for seven days now, and I believe I have finally discovered a clue towards the cause of our unexpected change of course. Dr. Miyake and I worked together briefly when we were younger, and after I complimented her work and gave her a few details on what I was doing, she seemed satisfied to trust me.

"I agree that this ship obviously has a mission other than resolving the longitude problem. Being at the university, I do not hear too much from those academicians - why, only last week, they simply strode into my workshop without a moment;s -" began Dr. Miyake.

"yes, yes," I said testily, "I have no especial love for the Academy either,but there is not much space here and I am getting cramped, so if it would please you to get to the point?"

"I was. While watching them inspect one of my clocks, a worker overheard the academicians talking about how they needed to 'legitimise' their expedition in order to reduce suspicion," said Miyake.

"Well, that tells me nothing!," I exclaimed.

"They also said that the horologists would be required to prevent another fatal accident," she added cryptically.

For once, I was silenced, slowly digesting this worrying development, but I was shortly interrupted by a cry of alarm from above.
