: "Michael, finish launch, destination unchanged", the officer spoke
: "Well Mr. Cameron, we're about to have 45 hours of doing nothing before
: "45 hours before visuals..." Ralph was doing some quick
"Ah, fuck them." Ralph thought to himself. He was not gonna let it get to him too much.
He kicked back in the chair and produced a small bottle from his left overall pocket. He unscrewed the cork and let the strong aroma from the bottle fill his nostrils. Even though he was used to it by now, he winced slightly at the strong smell.
"Mr. Cameron, I must remind you of UESC policy; no liquor of any kind allowed."
Ralph looked up at the spook. The disapproving look on Ralph's face made the spook look away.
He remembered the day he had told his dad he wanted to create his own destiny. Seemed almost laughable now, as he sat onboard a vessel to a location unknown to him. He could only guess what his next assignment would be, and he hated guessing games.
"Whatever you do, whatever your occupation, excel in everything you do"
His mom was a devoted Christian, and she had told him that the phrase was from the Bible. He wasn't very religious himself, but he had deep admiration for his mother's strong faith and he had lived by that phrase his whole life.
The starport shrunk behind them, until it was only a tiny dot surrounded by the void emptiness of space. And suddenly it was gone, too far away for the human eye to see, only surrounded by pitch black darkness, the vessel continued it's journey towards it's destinated coordinates. The bright green letters on the vessel's console spelled out the name of one of Mars' moons, "Deimos".
End of chapter one perhaps?
