((Is everyone ignoring the point that my second character has locked all exits and even closed the blast doors, including both the entrance to the hangars as well as the landing bay doors))
"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance,
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe,
are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves."
- Carl Sagan
