Captain here. Our Dilithium Hamsters started to malfunction last night as we approached the home base. The trip was meant to be a short run to Planet Westercon. We have landed on an outer moon that has little atmosphere.
Upon landing, the Dilithium Hamsters disintegrated. The distress signal has been activated but the gerbil running it is weak and unable to keep the signal wheel going for much longer.
As the captain of this ship, I am doing ny best to keep morale up amongst the remaining crew. Rations are few and the oxygen is low. Send help.
