We’re getting closer and closer to “little blue”, the code name for our destination. I’ve slept poorly through most of our journey, tossing and turning, worrying about the safety of our crew, stressing out about our mission.
I guess it’s only natural, it’s not every day you get selected to lead the expedition to save your civilization. I usually enjoy these long space journeys, the long silences, the endless expanses of space stretching out in all directions, the stars reflecting against the window of the command deck, but this time I’ve been wishing that I was home safe on planet Jörg. I’m not sure if I’m the right Jörg for the job. The only thing that keeps my spirits up is the dream of a warmer planet, a planet where we are finally free from our never ending winter.
