Navigational Somnocartographs of the P.C.A. Due Return, TD+17
Captain Zincovovich conducted a rare though impermanent experiment as the Due Return traveled through the hive-like structures of TD+17. He ran the directional output of N.O.M.A.D's navigational sensors into software designed to record the sleep-output of humans. Much of what was gathered simply mirrored the data found on visual sensors which were running during the ship's onward motion. However, Zincovovich was also careful to process the sensors' 'quiet information', generated when the ship was at a resting state. Despite the relatively static nature of the visual records created during this time, the somnocartographic software captured a number of elegantly simple motions, perhaps the ship's dreams of potential maneuvers.
