It appears you are drifting in space, alone. You don't know when you got here, how you got here, and most importantly, you seem to have either no knowledge of this sector, or a bad case of not-knowing-any-sort-of-context-for-whatever-reason syndrome.
Additionally, you seem to not remember whatever you call yourself, which probably makes the latter all the more likely.
This should be resolved immediately, and then you should resolve the no knowledge of this sector part.

What do you call yourself, and additionally, what will you do?

RE: Warcends
'Nancy' is the nickname, and cross-referencing the databanks with the stars to determine your location is currently your game.
Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.

Darius has a nice ring.

DISCERN location. Identify stars, and nebulae. Get familiar with the location.

Still as alone as it was an hour ago.
You consider three names:

You settle on 'Nancy'. You like it.
You then get to work on doing stuff.

Databanks accessed!

Error: Hull cameras not precise enough for resolving stars!
Suggestion: Upgrade hull cameras at station.

Bummer. Seems like you will have to go to a station. If there is one around here, at least.

Attempting to locate sufficient landmarks...

One landmark located! Asteroid field, 12 O'Clock.

That's good! You will, at the very least, be able to mine for stuff to manually repair your ship. And there may be a mining station nearby if the field is large enough, and you will be able to do stuff for it in exchange for credits, and possibly reconstruct and/or buy better parts, if it is large enough.

Yep. You don't even know what you were trying to do with that, as your hull cameras are still too weak to pick up even the brightest of stars.

SYS. OVERVIEW:
Overall System Rating:
No Issues
Overall Hull & Module Integrity Rating:
Slightly Damaged
Net Energy Production/Consumption:
+400 MW/h
Energy Production/Consumption Deviation:
-300 MW/h
Reason for Major Energy Production/Consumption Deviation: Heavy usage of hull cameras drained a considerable amount of Megawatts.
Suggestion: Refrain from heavily using hull cameras unless it will resolve something of extreme importance.
Current Battery Charge: 700/5000 MW
Time to Full Charge: ≈11 hours
Time to Full Charge at average Energy Production for last 5 hours(
+550 MW/h): ≈8 hours
Overall Suggestion: Reconstruct at a Station.

Mine asteroids so you have resources to build stuff.

(given there's no 'life support' or othr organic sillyness system in the list, One assume's we're the ship directly not some pilot inside.)

>Alright let's mine some asteroids for resources.

>Try to use cameras sparingly but don't shut them off completly yet (we need to avoid collision). Lower power to the cameras progressively as we get closer to target. Also as long as we're nowhere near collision risk, we can just use bursts of vision.
(.. You'd really think you'd pick up bright stars over asteroids, really, but ... who kno whow those cmeras are dmage, software might be bugged to)
