The Captain got us to sea with only a short delay. His plan had been to take aboard as many containers as possible, but curtailed that notion in favor of a few select ones with foodstuffs.
Once underway and with our course set southward, Tomas and I brought the government guard up for questioning.
Tomas doubts his truthfulness, but I thought him quite forthcoming. He had held up all alone at a barracks outside the city. There he found the communications that pulled him back to the ship. That marks the limit of his knowledge.
I know more. The container transferred to the warship was a weapon resupply.
