Spaceship

Coma like consciousness resurfaces Enclosed in a capsule shaped sleep chamber A few vague abstract shapes pass and repass Overhead LED lights flash response Feeling for control pressure area Oxygen floods now obsolete chamber The glass frame clicks and glides swiftly open Stepping out Grayson squats to do knee bends "Hi" and a friendly tap on his shoulder confirms First Mate Adams has likewise awakened Refreshed after a dry crystal shower He meets up with his colleague once again The onboard computer interrupts with update logistical data read out Which lasts approx. eleven earth hours Grayson takes up his first watch duty role Familiarising relevant complans Compiling notes on configurations While studying the moon's crater surface Alien report flashes up on screen Sentient. All O.K. No import flares Star Planet Ogilvy one light year away "Hi Grayson", greets Adam's approaching frame "Any adverse affects from your nano sleep?" "No Doc", Grayson responds positively Then automatically checks his stun gun Noting Adams back view does not compute A pulsating neck protuberance glows red Horror struck Grayson then sees it turn purple As he raises his gun to eye level Adams then turns unexpectedly Seeing the lazar ray hone in on him Smile freezes and registers shock on his face. Dated: 9th March 2014
