Synopsis: An oddball group of astronauts are sent into the unknown with little experience and problems ranging from minor to Ursa Major. Will the crew of the Celestion-5 go down in history as humanity's first travelers to Neptune, or will lousy luck, personal problems, and military mismanagement be the doom of these future stars?
Newest Chapter: Emil starts the day off with one mission: to give Leon a happy birthday no matter what horrible life-upturning circumstances are happening. But first, he has to run some errands.
Lorenzo turned back to him, pressing the same two buttons in reverse. “Accompany Ranger Summers to the loading dock while I keep watch for his brother. Have him open the package there. Do not enter the upper area of the ship until he does. And make sure you wear your helmet and gloves while he does it, just in case.”
“Just in case what?” Emil stood back up.
He rolled his eyes. He remembered alright. “Any envelope might be anthrax. I thought Dad phased that one out. So wait, do you think Rookie’s mailing in poison? Rookie??”
“If the other one is up to something, it only makes sense that Ranger Summers would be involved.” Lorenzo reasoned, though Emil would hardly call it reasonable. “Or maybe he mailed it in under his name.”
Emil sighed, genuinely sad for him. “Lorie. I know you’re worried, but I’ll be fine. I promise.”
