O'Hara nodded and looked to Day, saying, "Take us away."

She gently guided the ship through the atmosphere a second time. The captain glossed over the bridge before leaving for conference room B. He felt like everything was bigger, colder, harder. I'm probably just tired.

In room B, O'Hara moved a chair to a steel plate bolted to the wall. It served him as a small table, where he placed his personal computer and looked over his reports. He was confident that a procedure similar to the first extraction was required, but four, smaller teams were comprised to acquire all the beacons at once, so he set up the teams according to everyone's strengths and weaknesses. Swain, Zakowski, and Royce comprised team one. Imes, Becker, and Mickelson were team two. DeReaux, Fitzpatrick, and Tulley were team three. O'Hara, Martinez, and Campbell were team Go get 'em killa, a title he picked to entertain Marty.

"Holy cow, holy, freaking cow!" Swain was going bonkers. "Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Oh, my God." He was screaming and running through the corridors of the Phoenix. "Captain!"

O'Hara poked his head from crew quarters, expecting the worst. "What!? What happened?"
