One Cycle Down…

One year ago today the crew of GalacticMu sat at the cockpit and wondered if they should press the red button.

“Do it,” Sunday said.

“But the rebustable bolsters aren’t online,” Leesa warned.

“Whatever you guys want to do,” said Mike.

“I want it!” Sunday yelled.

“Okay fine, press the button.  I hope you’re prepared for a full plasma purge.”  Leesa tapped at the mainframe keyboard.

“Well, I don’t have a course prepared yet, anyway.”  Sunday pulled out the heaps of maps and glared at them.

“Maps?  No one said there were going to be maps,” Mike said in a shrill voice.

“Captain, I’m an engineer, not a – oh, there we go.  They’re online.”  Leesa smoked two cigarettes at once in celebration.

“I guess we don’t need to know where we’re going just yet.”  Sunday’s eyes drifted back to the button.  “And we’re fully stocked with Dorritos and kippers.”

“And coffee.”

“And puppies.”

“Oh, fuck it.”

    … and all the while, unmentioned,unacknowledged, The Atmo, space scow extraordinaire, has faithfully followed in Gmu’s toxic wake purifying The Void of her detritus, flotsam and jetsam. The Atmo’s crew, unbespoken heroes of The Ether indeed.

    Oh, I love you guys, even though I’ll forget to read you for weeks at a time, sometimes. You make me just a little bit happier, simply by existing.
