Childhood is gone. Illusion is abolished. The world is laid bare, full of unpolished people and unfulfilled destiny. But that is not your concern. Because on your piece of paper there will always be written orders. There are only the orders and the following of the orders. There is only the Lariat, and its closing, and human destiny made manifest. Welcome to adulthood, Claire. Welcome to the World Navy.
This episode of Mindframe is the Prologue to the story, and it follows a day in the life of Captain Bill Campana. He is a captain in the World Navy, and he is in control of a Razor Class ship whose mission is to travel to the Oort Cloud on the far edge of the solar system to grab a massive comet and bring it back to a mining station. His duty is to bring back vital water and minerals for the construction of The Lariat, but when he comes out of his travel cove, he discovers that his mission may be in jeopardy.
