This is an abandoned exploration settlement, where a science team were sent out into deep space to find answers to those unanswered questions. Are we alone in the galaxy ? Where did we come from ? Can Aliens make a good cup of tea ?
Things were going great, samples were being collected, everything was fine, until one of the science teams went missing . . .
LEAVE A LIGHT ON 1/4
It’s been an exciting journey so far. Commander Norris and the team are saying that these geological features and the data we’ re getting back from them could rethink the way we look for alien life or terraforming planets for habitation.
The whole team has gone to analyise the latest site and take samples. I’m holding the fort. As the Habitation Engineer it’s my job to make sure everything in camp is working correctly and the habs and equipement are
Not as exciting as ground breaking geological science, but essential for a project this far out in space.
LEAVE A LIGHT ON 2/4
Something doesn’t feel right. I’ve lost contact with the science team.
Their last transmission was to report they had reached the site and were starting the analysis.
That was 10 hours ago.
If I’ve not heard anything in the next couple of hours I’m calling this in.
LEAVE A LIGHT ON 3/4
This is Expedition JSPR-003.
Communications lost with science survey team.
12 hours since last contact.
Command do you read me’?
What the hell?
Command come in, are you there?
Someone please pick up!
LEAVE A LIGHT ON 4/4
This is so messed up. The comms are completely down, I can’t get a signal in or out. Something out there is disrupting the communications.
It’s now been over 24 hours since last contact and I can’t get hold of command. I just have to hope one of my messages got through.
I’ve decided to go and look for the team. I have to find out if they are OK, I can’t leave them out there if they need my help.
I’ve set a repeating message for the rescue team, leaving a light on so to speak.
With luck I’ll be back soon with the rest of the team.
