Time Travel Successful

A note to future and past readers: I know I have been remiss in adding entries to my research log book; and much has happened in the last month, indeed! The reader will be disoriented, I can wager, by the out-of-order entries as they will be occurring. However, this may well impress the nature of my experience during this amazing time, for I have been traveling through time myself! The physical effects of time travel using my method seem to be minimal: indeed, it is rather the mental effects that seem to be more severe than I had anticipated. The mind seems to have difficulty tracking and ordering memories and perceptions once it has undergone time travel. So, now the reader can join me in my sense of time disorder. I will attempt to supply local temporal time and date mentions in my entries; it will be up to you to place them in an order that more resembles the normal time flow.

IT SEEMS THE UNIVERSE is in control of my destiny and details, and it seems to be conspiring for my success. The controls for the Time Bending Unit still need much calibration and adjustment: I set them to jump 10 years into the future and instead ended up 500 years in the future, in the 24th century. As near as I can asertain, I have landed in the year 2350. Also, either Caledon is the site for a large modern campus in that year, or else the TBU (Time Bending Unit) is also displacing space as well as time. From my crude attempts at geolocation by stars, I seem to be several hundred miles northwest of Caledon. Or mayeb the stars have moved beyond my understanding in these 500 years.

I have found what seems to be a 24th century college campus or science center called “Star Fleet Academy.” Wonderous technologies are in use here as common, everyday items. No one is amazed at the precision and durable construction materials, teleportation, talking machines of wonderous and endless information, and weapons of light. They all take it for granted. I have obtained clothes of the style and type commonly worn here, and I have attempted to blend in. Still, I suspect my wide-eyed wonder at nearly everything I see will give away the fact that I am not of their time.

24th Century Star Fleet Academy Cadet
After becoming almost uncontainably excited at the prospect of not only a successful time travel experiment, but the limitless knowledge that abounds here, I decided to actually enroll in the academy and learn all I can of the technology to take back to 1895 Caledon with me. I will learn all I can as quickly as I can. Mr. Drinkwater and Mr. Kukulcan will have a hard time believing what is here – I shall endeavor to arrange them a trip here as well! And the stories I can now tell at The alling Anvil will have a decidedly different slant than my 1880’s seafaring tales! Or perhaps I will not be able to tell them at all for I may be considered a madman. For now, this log book is my only avenue of record and telling of my adventures.

The academy seems to have some kind of military significance, as the ranks are all of military history. I have enrolled successfully as a cadet, and explored much of the facility. I will log here what I find.
