Over a quarter of a million terrans live onboard, conditions are cramped but there are communal locations such as bars, cafeterias, gyms etc. Oracle Ji'ala Whitesone "Just a few short hours ago we lost Gehn Falkenstein." Ji'ala stared into the nothingness, her heart full of sadness. She stood upon a small podium, completely circular it emitted a blinding white light that engulfed her. The rest of the room was pitch black as the holographic projector displayed her image to every visual receptor in the fleet, her voice projecting through every audio channel. "Gehn was an agricultural specialist on the 'Rising Sun', a ship widely known for its agricultural research and development. For the past few years the team Gehn was a member of has been developing a strain of Bavilian Wheat that will provide as much as twice the current nutritional value that it does today. Like all of us, he was considered a valued member of the fleet. At roughly 0400 hours this morning, the hydroponics bay on the Rising Sun suffered a severe radiation leak, at the time five members of the research team were at that location running tests." She let the news hang for a moment, giving the fleet a moment to absorb the information, her demeanor calm but saddened. "Gehn, who was the designated as the team leader during the session, sacrificed himself to save the lives of his four colleagues, who despite absorbing almost lethal doses of radiation, will make full recoveries thanks to his actions. Terrans are not immune to tragedy, we face it on an almost daily basis. But when it strikes, when we lose the ones we love, the people that make us who we are, it is always to an honorable death." For a moment Ji'ala found herself thinking of Jhon, her husband who died himself over twenty years ago. He too had scarified himself to save others, he too had died honorably. "We live that we may serve, and we die that others may live." One of the deep rooted truths of their society, they were all taught to believe it, to achieve it. Only through true altruism could they achieve their mission, and through their mission create a new utopia. "Gehn Falkenstein is a testament to the inherent goodness within us all. A way of living that we strive to live up to all the days of our lives. It is what separates us from all other civilizations in the galaxy, that each of us would willing sacrifice their life to save another. And so today we pay tribute to Gehn, to a hero that symbolizes everything we have achieved already, and everything we seek to achieve in the future. In reverence on his selflessness I ask that each of us now hold a minute's silence to reflect upon Gehn Falkenstein and his actions today. Thank you." The Oracle stepped off the podium, vanishing into the darkness and six million souls fell into silent unison.
