Bad News Comes in Threes

***** OPERATOR MESSAGE *****

Greetings, soldier. I understand that you're probably suffering from freezer burn, so I'll get you up to speed quickly.

You're on board the Dawntreader, a deep space exploration vessel. Our mission was to travel to Alpha Centauri, some 4.3 light years away. The entire crew, myself included, have been in cold sleep for the entire journey.

Something went wrong. You wouldn't be awake otherwise.

We launched on March 3, 2023. According to the onboard AI, it's now June 18, 2044 and we're hundreds of light years off course. But that's not the worst of it. Our power systems are drained, the main reactor isn't functioning, and the ship is irradiated.

Your combat suit makes you my only choice. Anyone else would be dead as soon as I cracked the seal on their cryo-pod.

I've patched into your communications systems and will see what you see. Make your way to the reactor and see what's going on. We need to restore power.

Good luck,
Lt Ayame Miyamoto
Senior Information Operator
