Some Diner, across the way from Lake Michigan
I took another sip of my coffee, mostly to disguise the lump that had just formed in my throat. Eventually I managed to compose myself so I could ask him my next question. “You don’t really expect me to believe that do you?” “You’re the investigative reporter” he replied “Go do some investigating.” “But you’ve given me hardly anything to go on” I said, trying to keep my voice calm. “Look, you found me, I didn’t come looking for you, if they found out I was even sitting here, I’d be a dead man. Besides I’m not about to break all those military oaths I made.” “So why tell me any of it then, if you’re so keen to keep it all a secret?” “Some things need to not be a secret no more” “You talking about the rumours of extra terriestral life?” I said, raising an eyebrow “Like I said, you’re the investigative reporter.” He sat back and curled his mouth slightly into a smile. “OK, fine, just tell me one thing.” I leant over the table so I could lower my voice. “How the hell was your sub in the bay one minute then 5 minutes later, on the other side of the world?”
Take up the role of an elite crew member upon the new Aurora prototype submarine and learn it’s secrets as well as those that aren’t quite of this world… Systems will need to be tested, new propulsion systems pushed to the max, the onboard Artificial Intelligence taken through the turing test. Then just the small matter of preventing the apocalypse within the time allowed. Are you up to the challenge?
