+++FILE DESIGNATION: Lord-Captain’s Personal Logfile+++

Our survey of the planetoids orbiting the cold remains of Ozymandias is finally complete. Plans have been set into motion to exploit each of these worlds to the highest degree possible. After the debacle on Nun, Renatus has made it her personal mission to rid that world of its verminous inhabitants. I have given her my blessing to proceed with the design and implementation of a tailored virus, which we can put use on a planetary scale at a future date.
The exploration of Kaph was particularly profitable. We discovered and disabled several ancient combat servitors, two of which I am having Enginseer Kalin renovate for use as personal guards. The rest, I will put into stasis for sale or trade at a later date. Nicostratus assures me that they are worth something to the right collector. It would please me greatly to learn that he is right. On Kaph, we also discovered a significant network of long-range atomic warhead delivery systems, some of which had not been fired. With the help of Enginseer Kalin and his acolytes, we were able to determine that some of the devices remain effective. These were recovered to the ship for future use. An excellent find!
Next, we explored Tsadi, the final habitable body in this part of the system. It appears the ancient residents used this place as a site for their unholy research. At the center of their operations, we discovered a structure dedicated to producing a “transubstantiation veil” into the warp itself. In order to prevent others from tapping into the horrors of this place, I ordered the linear accelerators destroyed and the main test chamber sealed. We also dropped warning buoys to warn future travellers away. I hope to the God-Emperor that they listen.
My next step is to put one of those atomics to use. With the God-Emperor’s blessing and a little bit of luck, the Wanderer won’t be plaguing us for much longer.
