The Daedalus was supposed to be perfect. It had the perfect crew, the perfect technology, and most importantly, the perfect mission - colonize Mars. Tamara Moore was one of the six astronauts selected to build humanity’s new home. It was all she’d ever wanted. For Tamara, getting to Mars was one of the only things that kept her going, aside from her half-sister, Brooklyn.
Tamara had waited her entire life to step foot on Mars. She’d spent years training. She’d given up everything to be on the Daedalus. But before she could achieve her lifelong dream, everything fell apart in a perfect storm. Their ship landed 75.3 kilometres away from their planned location, leaving them stranded with a malfunctioning space craft and a dead crew member. Life on Earth was easy. Surviving on Mars was not.
