The Breakout Ship
by George Watson
Everyone is told that the 'Breakout Ship' was an unoccupied alien spaceship found abandoned and drifting near Pluto.
The creatures on board would have given us all the technology they had, if we had asked.
We killed them!
The stolen technology allowed mankind to 'Breakout' of the solar system and once we were into the galaxy we found nothing but empty dead worlds and many unseen dangers.
