Day 21--Overheard Conversation

Okay...a day behind, but here it is:

To State the Obvious

To state the obvious: space is huge.
We need to get busy. We need to explore.

Why not a colony on Mars? We're
the Empire masking as Rebels.

The planet strikes back. Earth
strikes back. Can't you feel it?

Thunder like rockets launching.
The sound of doom.
