Divided Destiny, pt. 06
Evening had come upon this region of
. From one of the Evacuation Transports, Fate stared out into the black void. The lights from the vehicle lit the general area around it, a few meters at most. Beyond that it was almost pitch black. The single moon in the sky did offer some illumination of the barren terrain but it was nothing compared to the artificial human lights. A look out the other windows allowed her to see the other vehicles that drove in the convoy. Amongst the Evacuation Transports a few Cargo Trucks and ConVecs were visible. Part of the convoy had sped on ahead, taking with them the essential structures kits and workers to start construction of an outpost before the rest of the of colonist arrived.
The atmosphere inside the transport was tense. The only words spoken were in whispers between the scientists. More than likely they were all trying to figure out the same thing she was: just what had happened at Advance Lab #03? With an unknown number of days to the outpost site, Fate figured they had better get this out into the open and try to figure it all out.
She cleared her throat, catching all of their attention, "I'm sure you are all wondering the same thing I am." They answered back in silence, a few averting their eyes. "Does anyone know anything?"
Some eyes wandered over their peers. Others stared down in an attempt to avoid the question. "I-I overheard some scientists from the Advance Labs a few days ago." All eyes turned to the one who had broken the uncomfortable silence. "They were saying something about accelerating the pace of the experiments of some microbe."
"Is that why they pulled so many mico-biologists?"
"What could they have been engineering it for?"
"Some kind of bio-weapon?"
Theories were thrown around and the noise level in the transport began to rise. Only Fate had decided not to participate. Instead she sat on her seat and pondered the new information. What could have been so secretive about this microbe? They had all the Advance Labs on high security protection for this thing. Just what were they trying to engineer this thing to-
"Terraforming." Her random comment caught most of the other scientists' attention. "The microbe was being engineered to terraform the planet."
"A terraforming microbe?"
"How could it terraform a planet?"
"I thought they were going to try try and engineer plants?"
"After the last failed experiment? Doubt it."
"Just what had they hoped for thing thing to do?"
"Is that what destroyed the lab?"
The scientists continued to debate amongst one another about how this microbe was related to the earlier announced terraforming plans. Fate's mind drifted back to those nightly expeditions from the Advanced Lab. If they were experimenting with some engineered micro-organism they would have needed field data in order to judge how fast it would complete its task. Then that would mean they had been been conducting experiments off-site for weeks. Was this the first time it had gotten lose? Had it already started to spread into
's ecosystem? Whatever was the case, it was free now and more than likely beginning to spread across
at this very moment.
