You awaken… your eyes adjusting and your memory foggy…. Finally you see something a red blinking light through glass. You feel suddenly cold, very cold as if you are completely frozen. You realize that you are in a cryotube and being awakened. You hear a computerized female voice saying:
“EMERGENCY. EMERGENCY. CRYOSLEEP INTERRUPTED. STARTING IMMEDIATE WAKE-UP PROTOCOLS.”
it appears that you are being awakened earlier than anticipated and due to some emergency. As you awaken, you realize that your cryotube is vertical and you can see into the room. It’s a small cabin with just a chair in the room and a cabinet on the wall. The cabinet appears to have a contact recognition lock. and a screen with words on it. There is a single door on the opposite side of the cryotube that you are in. You still don’t know why you are here, where you came from or anything before awakening.
“PLEASE BE AWARE YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM CRYO-SICKNESS. YOU MAY FEEL ILL AND YOU WILL SUFFER FROM MEMORY LOSS. AS YOUR BRAIN THAWS FROM THE CRYO-SLEEP YOUR MEMORY WILL RETURN.”
You are starting to feel warm and the door opens on your tube, allowing you to take your first steps out. The screen on the cabinet reads “place any digit on sensor”. You do so and as the cabinet opens to what appears is military grade equipment. There is a mirror in the cabinet and you notice that you are without apparel. You see a Military Uniform with the Truane’s Star Expeditionary Service badge on your right shoulder. You see a name also on the uniform. Instructions to put on this equipment is listed on the screen.
You put on the helmet system combined with some type of personal computer system. As you put it on hundreds of thoughts come flowing at you all at once. You kneel from the onslaught and then the ground buckles beneath you. You hear explosions and realize that you are not on planet but on a ship.
What do you do now? Where do you go?
