First message from Fastrack One.
We docked with the ship that will take us to Mars, and were greeted by the crew that’s been testing all systems for the past year. After a few days, they’ll board the shuttle that brought us here and head back to Earth. Until then it will be very cozy.

One of the first things I’ll do is synch my mascot costume with the ship’s computer. That will mean that all of its functions will go through me, and I’ll alert everyone in case there’s a problem requiring attention.
Remora and Samantha will go to the water tanks where Remora’s parents have lived while growing algae for the crew to eat. There will be a brief reunion before they head back as well.
Then the real countdown will begin, to the moment we fire our thrusters to propel us to the red planet.
