The Martyan Craft Alights

The spacecraft door lowers with a soft “shshshshsh…”.

Having just recently awakened from a long cryogenic slumber I gaze, bleary-eyed, out upon this strange new world.  It’s a bright symphony of blues, and greens, and browns and blacks. “Hello World!” No answer…   …except for birds…   …chirping.

I descend the stairs feeling a little weak, a little clumsy, and stiff. To the left lies a stunningly beautiful countryside.  A breeze tugs me gently in the other direction.  In the distance, to the right, lies a majestic cityscape of concrete and steel…  …and that astounding blue sky circumrounding it all.

One small step for Marty. One  giant leap for Martykind!” My first tenuous step touches down on pliant Earth.

Turning around it dawns on me that I don’t know where I’m going.  There’s a vast unknown sphere to explore and I’m only seeing the tiniest portion of it.  I wonder what lies on the other side?  What’s on the inside?  What are the worlds found inside each of the inhabitants?

It’s almost too much to contemplate.  Where do I begin? Where do I go? During the approach I observed that there’s a single great star that illuminates this entire world.

This must be a world familiar with the concept of “one”.  That’s a very good thing…  …as long as they include me.

I don’t know if it’s just the aftereffects of cryostasis but I don’t have a clue what I’m going to do next.  I feel certain about one thing though…

…This is gonna be good.
