Time seemed to pass by slowly for the colonists of
. It had been about a month since the unexpected evacuation of their main colony. The first week or so was especially hard for them. Only the essential structures were erected and online from the structure kits they had managed to evacuate with them. Like their Eden brethren, most had to stay in the tubes between structures until Residencies could be constructed to accommodate them. Though their future was foggy, morale remained fairly stable. They all understood that there would be some hardships living on an un-terraformed
. Although the volcanic eruption was unexpected, natural occurrences were something that they had expected to test them and their determination.
Since the evacuation, the colonists rallied together and helped out in anyway they could to get their colony back on its feet. Recently a second mine had been constructed and was generated a high yield of common ore. The increase in ore provided vital building materials for the construction of new structure kits, including Residencies. A small handful had been finished a few days ago. Priority on housing was given to large families and those with children. Friends and co-workers came together to share the few available rooms until more kits could be made.
A particular blond pushed his glasses back up the bridge of his nose. "You alright Nanoha?"
He received a groan in response.
"Work's that bad?"
"You could say that. I love teaching the new workers the ropes, but these young ones...urg."
Since the evacuation, resources had been tight. Even with the new mine operational they needed a lot more common metal to get the colony operational again. As a result, their remote control system wasn't at 100% operation yet. It could handle a handful of vehicles but not as much as it used to. Until they could get a Robot Command Center structure online many of the automated tasks would have to be done manually. That meant training up a lot of workers to handle the various vehicles that colony depended upon.
"I'm sure you can do it, Instructor Takamachi."
"Oh very funny. You make it sound like I'm some kind of drill sergeant or something."
"Ma'am, yes ma'am!"
She sighed and shook her head with a slight smile, "So how are things at the lab, Yuuno?"
With no University, many of the students who were in their last term were brought into the labs to assist with the reconstruction of
's database and whatever projects were being worked on at the time. For may of the students they looked at it as an opportunity to gain valuable experience and a leg up in being assigned to more high profile projects once they did graduate.
"We're almost done with rebuilding the database. Some people had been taken off the project to work on some of the projects that were saved during the evacuation."
"Oh? Do you know what's going on in that other lab then?"
Last week they had to build a larger lab facility at the edge of the colony. The interior was spacious from what she saw of the plans and they had been requesting a lot of automotive parts recently. Plus they had installed warning lights around the entrances a few days ago when the structure was not to be entered. What they were doing in there when those lights were on she wasn't sure.
"I'm not sure myself. We've been pretty busy at the lab with our own work so I haven't heard anything about the projects in there."
Before either could say anything else, a shout came from behind Nanoha.
"Gather up everyone!"
Nanoha looked over her shoulder before turning her attention back to the phone. "Looks like they're calling a meeting. I'll talk to you later."
"Alright. See you later."
She hung up the phone and jogged over to join her co-workers on the floor to see what the meeting was all about.
"Listen up! It appears that the council has green-lighted a recon mission to the original
colony site." People turned to one another, whispering theories about the mission. "As such, they have requested drivers to operate the vehicles they plan on sending in. Since the reason for the evacuation is unknown all control will be done remotely from retrofitted Evacs. The primary recon team will consist of four scouts and several of a new vehicle they had recently developed. What they are not even I was told. Though what I can tell you is that this will be a dangerous mission even if it is by long-distance control. This is strictly by volunteer only. If you want on, come talk with me. That is all."
A) Sign up for the recon mission
B) It sounds too risky. I'll pass.
C) Change to Fate's PoV
