Confirmation
“Mister Sorenson.” Lieutenant Williams let herself into the Corvin, a blast of cold air and light dusting of loose snow following her. Alex had been idling around in the shuttle for a few hours, going over diagnostics and doing a little bit of fine tuning h...

Heist
Alex had a fully functional aircraft at his disposal, but no permission to use it. He could very easily have just gone for a flight, as there was no actual flight control in the dyson shell to stop him, but he wasn’t officially very close to the top of the ...

Work
The storm raged for two more days before it died down, leaving the expedition further behind schedule than anyone had anticipated. Over a meter of snow made even the most simple installation difficult, and the portal’s interpretation of what constituted a w...

Named
“All right, all persons are accounted for. You really sure you want to stay there?” Williams set her tablet down and gave Alex a pointed look through the portal, wind whipping heavy snowflakes around him. He gave an exaggerated shrug so it would be easily v...
