The Robert Sketch -

"Robert R. Robert Sketch"

DERBY, Veterans Museum - During the darkest hours of the Tanak Wars, the discovery of the first Jump Port on Earth afforded opportunities for diplomatic couriers and, eventually, military assistance. At that time entire ships went through the jump gates, requiring the steady hand and intuitive reactions of a skilled pilot/navigator. The most famous of these was Robert Robert Robert, a savant whose talent was in the practical application of the Mandelbrot and chaos theory mathematics required to navigate star ships through the gates. This years "Robbie Day" celebration will feature the unveiling of a Historical Document that was previously believed to have been little more than military scuttlebutt - the original anatomical drawing of the Jump Gate at Antarctica Station. Seen here, above the CAD image that went into every flight manual at that time, it was so accurate that the drawing itself, as well as the military post containing the coordinate parameters of this portal, has become known as The Robert Sketch.
