The ninth installment of my Zombies-in-Space Six Sunday Serial. This one finds Ryan in a very awkward position.
As always, this scene picks up immediately following last week’s six sentences, so if you want to catch up or need a recap then just follow this link.
Onto the story…
Ryan lowered his weapon to approach the control console. Normally, three people would be needed to restart the reactor but, either through good fortune or good design, it was possible for him to reach both the ignition switches and his cerebral interface could input the commands. Unfortunately it required him to be pressed against the reinforced glass of the display with his arms fully extended.
He’d never felt so exposed.
His implants interfaced with the Drake’s computer, and he mentally entered the restart codes while his outstretched hands maintained contact with the switches. Until the ignition sequence is accepted he was entirely at the mercy of fate, and she was ever the fickle mistress.
