The Survey Vessel Victoria’s Song may be found in orbit of the planet HIP 17125 A 3.
A series of four Ship Log Uplink points can be located along the hull. Deploy your ship’s hardpoints and use the onboard Data Link Scanner within 200m of each post to scan them and retrieve the logs. In addition to the text, each log is accompanied by an audio recording:
SURVEY VESSEL VICTORIA’S SONG, COMMANDER’S LOG 1/4:
Some of the crew are not happy we’re working for the Feds, but this deal is too good to pass up.
With all the expansion going on in this region, we need to make sure we’re in at the beginning to secure the contracts we need.
This Survey mission is just that. A simple rock hop, scanning for minerals.
SURVEY VESSEL VICTORIA’S SONG, COMMANDER’S LOG 2/4:
We arrived in orbit around planet A 7 A a day ago, it’s been all hands on deck to make sure all the equipment is ready for launch down to surface.
While the majority of our planet scans just showed the usual mineral data, there is one area on this rock that is giving off some unusual readings.
If there is any profit to be made from this trip, I’ll bet my ship it’s going to be found there.
SURVEY VESSEL VICTORIA’S SONG, COMMANDER’S LOG 3/4:
We’ve stumbled onto something big. I don’t know what it is, or who built it, but we’ ve definitely hit the mother load.
Aries Dark Region DB-X d1-63 is gonna have our names on it.
First things first, I’ve got to make sure all this is by the numbers. I don’t want this going south because we didn’t fill in the correct paperwork.
I’m calling it in.
SURVEY VESSEL VICTORIA’S SONG, COMMANDER’S LOG 4/4:

Repeat we’re an unarmed survey team on a registered mission.
