Date: 5/25/6913 Recap for new recruits: As you know, the dolphins left Earth for reasons unknown to us. Their last message to us included the phrase "So long, and thanks for all the fish" and something about a "treasure" floating around, but we are unclear on what. The eggheads back on Earth had decoded their message to the attached image. I hope you all can figure out that it's some kind of solar system. As we traveled, Earth has made a few more observations of this system. First, the planets seen to move counter-clockwise around the star. Second, with respect to the image, planets seem to move 1 space per day. Third, the moons travel clockwise around the planets, making a full revolution once every 4 days. Fourth, the system is pretty small, so our current technology can travel to any point over the course of 1 day. Current status: We have finally arrived at the system. Our sensors are still out from yesterday, but we managed to land on a planet. Upon landing, we exited the ship and saw a book set out at the base of the ramp, as if someone knew exactly where we would land. Unfortunately, a bowl of petunias was crushed by our ramp lowering, but the book was in great condition. Inside the book was the following note. "Welcome humans! You've finally made it. Sorry for the poor connection, we are heading through a space tunnel at the moment. Anyway, the 4 images in this book were created by our astronomers over drinks at some restaurant. The first one should be pretty similar to where you are now, with the rest hopefully becoming clear as you travel to them. Anyway, you'll need to work quickly or the pictures will get all out of whack and some kind of time traveling destroy-the-universe stuff will happen, which is undesirable for all involved parties. Before you get your hopes up too much, the treasure is going to be a random person floating in the expanse of space. Please be of some use and pick them up in a timely manner. Oh, almost forgot, when you get to the last location, the guy will be 1GS, which means [static]"
Not sure exactly how it happened, but the note turned into static. There's no time to be confused though, there's a potential time-traveling
bug feature to deal with! Oh, and some guy floating in the vast nothingness of space that we should probably save, even if he hasn't ever done anything for us.
