“This is really good. You guys want to try my pizza?” Chris said, with only one of the original four slices still on a tray in front of him. “None for me, thanks” Alexander said turning to look at Matthew. Matthew shook his head from side to side, as he chewed another piece of sushi.…

Dropping down close to the planet’s surface, Mars became a three dimensional world with canyons and mountains strewn across its landscape. The Resurrection dipped between the peaks and valleys and the landscaped zipped on by, but was nearly unchanging. Like a desert that went on forever, Mars was aptly named the Red Planet. Chris was…

A chirp finally broke the silence, and Alexander turned the communications system on. “Beam me up ship.” Chris’ voice echoed slight. A moment later, Chris was standing on the bridge wearing dark grey, knee length shorts and a red hooded sweatshirt. “How is everyone today? Anything cool happen while I was gone?” His voice raced…

Looking back through the transparent section of the ship, the transparency contracted back to the a small portion of the front, and still standing next to his cousin, Alexander ordered the ship to fall back to Earth. “The first thing we will need to do is figure some of this stuff out, and determine where…

As Alexander filled in Chris, he kept looking at his brother for verification and Matthew just kept nodding. Unlike Matthew, Chris seemed to take the news quite well, and when Alexander got to the brain implant story, he paused awaiting a shocked response, like the one he had received from Matthew. “Cool, can I have…

Alexander rubbed the back of his head. The thought of the implant being in his head was creepy to him as well, but he didn’t really want to show it. “Well, it does allow me to control the ship with my thoughts, and it allows the computer to send me information if I need it.”…

Matthew had just gotten to bed off an overnight shift at work. Exhausted, he roused slightly and looked at his phone. He hadn’t even been given a chance for an hour of sleep. Confused at where the voice was coming from, he responded, “Who is there?” Alexander excitedly burst into Matthew’s bedroom. With the blackout…
