The ship’s unpreparable, but rescue’s on the way.
Yes, without our communications grid we can’t contact Mission Control. And yes, since this sector’s uncharted they won’t know this moon exists.
But I’ve talked to the crew, and we agree there’s hope. Mission Control knows what sector we’re charting, and when we don’t return, they’ll scramble a search party.
Not great odds, but far from insignificant, so we need to hold it together as long as we can, and there’s no use blubbering about it.
Now; draw a straw. We’ll need to eat if we’re going to keep our strength up…
