THWACK [Mini] Mission: Kiwi Syslog Server


Our five-year mission through deep space includes all we could ever want: adventure, trials, tragedies, and triumphs. The journey and discoveries along the way are replicated food for our soul. But sometimes all you want to do is dump the crew off at Risa, so you can have some peace and quiet. While everyone's on shore leave, you can finish researching a fascinating rediscovery: Kiwi Syslog Server.

Finally, with the crew away, you have the time to breathe and brush up on some new skills, so you can step into the captain's ready room with confidence. Pull up a screen, sit back, and grab one of those blue beverages—you know the ones. Remember, the doctor said it's not prohibited if it's used for medicinal purposes.


Use the mission’s resources to complete the tasks and answer the questions for a chance to win!

Correctly answer each question during the week and you'll be entered for a chance to win the weekly prize.

Correctly answer all 10 questions over the course of the month and you'll be entered for a chance to win the grand prize.

150 points are being awarded for each correctly answered question. There are 10 questions, which means you can earn a maximum of 1,500 points for this mission.
