The road trip to the abandoned colony ship gets underway

It's starting to get dark.

Just a bit further, Florence. I always know when it's time to stop and make camp.

Hey. This looks like a good spot.

Mr. So

There you go.

Ahhh. Nothing beats the taste of electricity made outdoors.

How do you like your steak?

Rare.

How rare?

Stop. That's good.

Maybe I shouldn't have bothered getting out the grill.

That's a bright star.

That's not a star. It's an ice asteroid.

They drop about one a month. It's part of the terraforming effort.

Oh.

Do you suppose it has anything to do with this large “X” we've stopped by?

RUN!

Helix! We've camped in an asteroid drop zone!

I vote that we panic.

I also vote that we panic.

Sam, we shouldn't panic.

Two votes to one. The motion to panic has been carried. Screaming and flailing may start immediately.

AIEEEE!

Panic! Panic! Panic!

I'll try contacting the asteroid bureau and see if we're actually in any danger.

She's not panicking, Sam. We voted to panic.

Just not a team player, I guess.

When in trouble, when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout!

When in trouble, when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout!

Sam, panicking like this isn't going to get you anywhere.

She's right, Helix!

Let's go panic in the truck!

Yea! I mean “AIEEE!”

You're getting awfully close to the canyon edge.

No worries. I'm navigating by G.P.S.

Panic! Panic! Panic!

You are aware the Global Positioning System is only good to plus or minus 30 meters?

Plus or minus 30 meters? Why? Is that significant?

Yip!

Yi! Yi!
Yi! Yi!

Hey, I've discovered a new shortcut.

Sam! Do you know how close you came to getting us all killed!?

No.

But we didn't get killed, we're ahead of schedule, and we've cut miles off our trip. So everything worked out, right?

If ignorance is a bliss, then knowledge must surely be an ulcer.
