TAGE: Space Fantasy/Adventure (Dark)
Nobody said it at your goodbye party, but you knew what they were all thinking. You’re never coming back. Deep down you know that’s probably true. Only 1 in 5 ships survive their first year in the wolfpack. (They call the four man crew aboard “Fighter Defense” ships “Coffin Cousins” for a reason)
Not that it was much of a party anyways. Rations, curfews, and a seven day work week tend to put a damper on fun. You thought you’d use this time to run wild, drink, and rebel. Instead you find yourself deep in thought. You’ll be slipping the surly bonds of earth soon. Soon you’ll be traversing the stars, weightless, and free. You’re afraid to die, but after seeing footage of Alpha Centauri awash in flames you’d rather die up in space than trapped on a doomed “Marsed” planet.
Fear and anger are a curious mixture. These days it seems that everyone’s consumed by one or the other. For you, even the chance to strike back at them was motivation enough to join. While you don’t buy into the propaganda and you’re to smart to believe the reports that mankind is “winning the war” you couldn’t help but agree with the late Commander Modi when he said, “I refuse to starve to death in a bunker. I will not be worked to death in their factories. My death is my own. The Kamikazes… the Spartans, these men understood how to face an enemy”.
Tomorrow you’ll meet your shipmates and board the American made “Reuben James”. Good Luck.
