Stars Beyond the Universe Tape
The astronaut awoke in their small escape pod, sitting up and stretching before tallying what day it is. It should be about day 573, plus or minus a day or two. They grabbed an automatic meal pack from the chute, and sat in front of the controls, communications filled with chatter. Their pressel broke 396 days ago, barely functioning with a flickering static connection as their happy voices bled into his cold cabin. He could see the lights of their ships, twinkling in the distance like a star, and the virtual isolation of the communications device was driving him near insane. He couldn’t smash it, though, for he’d be truly alone then. So instead, he lay back down, idly sighing as he drifted back to sleep.
