We used the Slide Projector.
I led the expeditions into Slidescape-36.
They told me not to go, the Director should not put himself in danger.
I told them to fuck off.
I’ve seen action before, and I had to witness this myself.
To find some meaning in all of this.
I couldn’t sit on my ass, alone with my thoughts, my memories.
Anything but that.
Those who survived were deeply affected by what we found there, by what Darling brought back...
It changed everything.
Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen.
But I did find my meaning in that desert.
A sound, like a needle, drilling in, cutting through the containment suit, reverberating in the base of my skull, my whole being.
Darling said it was nothing.
But he was wrong.
It’s been there ever since.
Growing into a certainty, into an understanding of what’s at stake here, what kind of a threat we’re facing, and what must be done to stop it.
