Greetings, Weekend Writing Warriors! I am dusting off (another) WIP with the working title: Annie’s Song. The next few weeks I will share from a passage which has been written from the POV of Gravais, the captain of a faster-than-light scientific starship ship, which is transporting a new Team which has been assigned by the FOSB (Federation of Sentient Beings) to study a newly discovered planet.

The dimensions of the Starship were slightly off. Like the designing committee could not quite agree on the set of biometrics that were to be accommodated. The rooms and passages were broad and high ceilinged, but all the consoles, controls and readout panels were set oddly low on the dull grey walls.
Captain Gravais surveyed his small kingdom with satisfaction. His recently roused Navigator and Engineer were taking care of business on the bridge and he was on his way to supervise the awakening of his passengers from SpaceSleep.
They had arrived together on the shuttle from Federation Headquarters nearly eight decades ago, and had travelled together in suspended animation. At the cryotanks, he checked the life support monitors, and keyed in the reanimation codes.
Erit na Rakh was the first to recover.
