For most surveyors, the numbers were the point. The data from the deep space probes was distilled into numbers and graphs detailing mineral composition, solar arrangement, and location charts. Entire systems could be noted as "unremarkable" because their numbers didn't meet minimum thresholds. Unless there was a very anomalous result, most surveyors wouldn't even bother compiling the visual scans. But for Nadia, the visuals were the point of the job. Or at least, the reason she took it on. In her opinion, she'd seen more of the universe than just about anyone she knew. The sights didn't have to be spectacular and breathtaking, just seeing the farthest reaches of exploration filled her with a grand sense of awe. Her body may be a small thing in a small frigate slowly crawling through the stars, but her mind and her awareness was intergalactic.
