I N T O T H E V O I D try to save myself but myself keeps slipping away [hr] As steadily as it began, so too did it fall apart. It began with the captain. Next were his two officers. Third to go was the cook. The rest soon followed. [hr] October 17th, 2053: The team had been chosen at the last minute, but that didn't change the fact that they were the best at what they did. If that's true, mused Hark, why didn't we send these guys in the first place? The dossier they'd all received - top secret, classified, etcetera etcetera - had been delivered this morning. A man in a gray suit had walked brusquely up to each target, had politely spoken a few choice words about the (classified) mission they'd been tagged for. And what a mission it was. Deimos was scheduled to go offline in less than seventy-two hours. That meant that Hark would have to politely rush briefings and prep. And then we send 'em to sleep, and we hear from Deimos in seven months. At that point, it was up to Deimos to ensure they were on course. And in another seven months, they could get down to work. A long wait, a very long wait, to be sure. They'd get there, eventually. The Oppenheimer was slow. But it was their only option. Like we have many, thought Hark. And then they could finally figure out what had happened to the Volkoff.

We go live to Adam Wade at UNASA, Cape Canaveral, for his report..." The Globe and Mail excerpt, May 17th, 2050 "...the UNA Volkoff is, of course, the experimental spacecraft designed for research on black hole phenomena in our solar system..."
