❝Welcome to Sacrosanct. Please watch your step.❞
❝There are free chemical showers to your right.❞
|It happens in the space between one breath and the next. You can feel as your insides start pulling in a different direction than your feet, and then the ground vanishes beneath you, as your body dissolves into a cloud of particles.|
It only takes a moment, if moments existed right then. The rubber sheet of spacetime reaches its limit and then you're back, every atom returned to its proper place, except everything else has changed. The air rushing around you is cold as a freezer, and when you land, it's only to crash into a heap of scrap metal and spacerock.
|A chance spacetime tear has started to interact with the orbital's teleporter technology, says the station AI, and now it's dumping random material into the central zone every few minutes. No one knows how to fix it. The AI discourages you from filing a maintenance request. |
Before you ask, no, there is no one here who can get you home. And no, you can't leave the star system either. You can try, but you'll always wind up back here. It's just you, the station rings, and the big planet below.
Better get comfortable.
