You decide that, perhaps an escape route is in order in case you're suddenly trappedin a small room filled with fire. Or acid. Or suffocating gas. Or a sudden explosion. In hind sight there's a good chance that something unfortunate could have happened. You take the rather iconic looking wheel lock, thinking briefly about a malodorous pirate captain trying to steer his ship in a terrible and harrowing storm. With a great heave, you get the wheel to turn, just ever so slightly. You heave again. Once more, just a little give. By the seventh heave you're arms ache and but you've reached sweet success! The lock clicks and the door slides to the right, a surly sound squeaks out from the hydrolics as they're forced to reverse against their standing orders. You peek out beyond the door and find it is equally dark without as within. You're little light slicing through still darkness to reveal sandy terrain stretching out before you. There are no stars above you, just more opaque darkness. Dark and still, the world seems to greet you with unembellished indifference.

You restart the computer system. The process is fairly simple, but you find it remarkably similar to brute forcing the door. You open up the electrical panel, some of which seems badly burned, and cross the computer power imput directly into the battery reserve. It's a quick and dirty way to force a hard restart, which is protocol in the case of an electrical surge. Which... is basically what you're causing. And it works! Sort of. In a shower of sparks the computer lights up, as do the normal lights, but you come to discover the computer has been badly damaged. Luckily it appears the damage is far from recent and is almost probably totally not your fault even a little bit. At least, that's what you'll write in the report.



Your good fortune doesn't end with you not blowing yourself up however! You manage to locate the emergency PDA-704 and flip on the switch. The screen lights up, and with a sound you're definitely sure is a robotic equivalent of a yawn, two eyes appear on the screen.
