“I woke up today on a starship.
The computer says I’ve been asleep for 312 years, out so long that all my memories have been erased by time itself — I don’t even know my name.
As I search the haunted corridors for answers I discover that I am Captain John O’Neil. My ship adrift and broken, it orbits an alien world somewhere at the edge of the universe. My partner is missing, the Pilot, asleep in her cryo-chamber, and my Navigator is dead — murdered in his sleep.
Did I forget to mention that the Earth has been destroyed and we are the only surviving members of the human race?
Sorry, I’ve been forgetting a lot lately.”
Oneil, John A. —2499 A.D.
