Early in 2002, the Phoenix finally departed Abbai, returning to Minbar for a short break and update to her weapons systems (inspired by The Legend of the Rangers). She returned to service to fight one battle with the Centauri, a fight which left the ship relatively unscathed, but the crew devastated by an unexpected loss.
Several players joined the game -- a few for only a brief time, but others remained. Another player rejoined the game after several years' absence.
The logs posted in October of 2002 have gone missing. Two have been reconstructed from earlier drafts; sadly, the others appear to be gone for good.
