It's over now. The last run just ended couple of hours ago. After three successful voyages our beloved starship ESS Odysseus is set to be commissioned starting tomorrow.
It's a sad moment. Everything we have been aiming for during the past two and a half year is now coming to an end. It was an amazing journey. We accomplished something great, something that will be discussed during the years to come.
Looking back to our first drafts of plans its amazing how far we got. We had some "ambitious" goals set back then and I think we greatly surpassed every single one of those. We definitely overdid ourself. I think none of us imagined it would turn as great as this.
Tomorrow it's time to tear everything we built down. But I've heard our special effects team still has one more surprise on their sleeves reserved for us. The ship will go out with a blast.
It'll sure feel sad to walk through the setting one last time before that. But luckily we had some talented photographers there as well documenting every moment of the journey.
