Starship "Limitless Journey"

When I first heard about the idea of sending a ship to explore the cosmos beyond our Milky Way, I thought ‘Wow,what a great job that would be!.
And of course the space tech’s were lined up 10 deep.
All of humamity got to watch the vids of the ship Limitless Journey thats what she was called, being built out beyond Saturn.

It was something that myself and I’m sure many others had dreamed about all our lives. And just watching it being built, thinking and talking about what might be discovered, that alone was a thrill.

After about a year, an ad came out saying they were still looking for crew, they’d hired the tech’s, and they were filling out the rest but they had to have a special talent.

A special talent, man, what did that mean, kinda wish I had one.

I think my friends were getting pretty fed-up of me talking about how great it would be, how I wish I’d have got the education needed for such a trip.
Well’ finally one of them said ’ You should apply,who knows!!
Ya, like I have a chance.
Still I could always say I applied.

So I got a ride out to the spaceport, lined up with some of the weirdest looking dudes, I mean there were people in costumes, Klingons, Trekies of every description, all kinds of alien races, it was one big party.
Waited about 8 hrs finally got to fill out an application, man’ there were some strange questions on that form.

I copied some down,

(1) Do you believe in Aliens?

(22) Are you a scifi fan?

(31) Do you think UFO’s have visited our world?

(84) Do you think our space program is antiquated?

And the last one of 100….

Would you sign on for a one-way trip?

I answered YES to all of them.

Hey’ I wasn’t going to get hired anyway, and they were strange questions anyway.

So here we are 5 years later, somewhere beyond the Milky Way…………In a Galaxy Far Far Away.
Ya, I got hired as photographer/historian, ‘blew me away’.

So much to see and record, and with the advanced Cryogenics we have lots of time. We can sleep for a year, wake up refreshed.
And the ship just goes where the solar winds take us.

You might ask ’ will we make it back’ hell no, at least I hope not. I don’t miss Earth one bit.
I’m living my dreams every single day I’m awake. Sending lots of pics back to Earth.

We haven’t met the Borg yet, I was hoping for 7 of 9, but I’m sure we’ll meet up with the “Enterprise”.
Maybe even “Voyager” in the Gamma Quadrant.

And lastly,the really good thing about the crew……we’re all scifi nuts, all 2500 of us.
