It was a quiet “night” on the CS Falcor. Most of the crew were asleep, the lights were dimmed, the diagnostic and navigation read outs that normally beeped loudly were quiet. They weren’t even using the FTL Drive, simply powering through the vacuum without the risk of accidentally phasing through a planet in their sleep. In their bunks, some of the crew snored, others dreamed of home planets, and one listened to Valhyxxian Rain Sounds. All in all, it was calm, dark, and mostly silent. Until now.
An alarm rang through the entire ship. Lights flashed on, doors automatically opened, and rain sounds were interrupted. A slightly robotic voice permeated the ship.
“Mayday beacon detected. 1.27 lightyears from current position. Pilot’s BioSign required for FTL jump.” After 5 minutes, it repeated the message. It continued to repeat the message every 5 minutes until the BioSign was entered.
