how's those happened

in the first place.

It was a random

localized event, sir.

There is no way to detect

spontaneous stellar flares...

until it's too late.

It was bad luck.

Alright, Faris,

I don't believe in luck.

I'm not interested in luck.

I prefer that we be

more capable...

and prepared than lucky.

Observation, reflection, faith...

and determination.

In this way we may navigate the

So let's get to work ok?

Dismissed. Thank you.

C-62 open.

Seal C-62. Open Airlock 17.

Open door to terraforming bay.


Tensions are 15% down.



Copy that.

Wasn't my idea.

Jake have this dream of us

building a cabin on the new world.

Like pioneers.

A cabin on a lake.

There is a lake in the
