It came out of nowhere.
The ship’s sensors should have been able to spot it hundreds of miles in advance, but this time they didn’t. I was relaxing in the pilot seat, nursing my exotic fruit drink, listening to pleasant music, and dreaming of the exotic forests and legendary beaches of Planet Caledonia. After thirty years of working in space, I decided to retire there. I was a seasoned space explorer and a former officer of the Confederation space forces. I’d fought many battles, studied many new planets, and met some interesting people during my travels as a planetary prospector and a teacher. I survived asteroid storms, energy leaks, and confrontations that killed many others. I didn’t scare easily. I’d seen people die horribly in combat. I saw stars die. I had nerves of steel forged in a desire to survive and prevail. I thought I’d seen it all.
