Landfall Space Mission - Creative Writing
It is only our forth hour in space on our one day mission and already I am starting to feel a little home sick. I have done a lot of travelling before this mission, to fight wars and battles, but not to space. I have done all of the tests but none of them even nearly compare to actually being in space. My body is feeling so light and it?s as if I don?t have anything inside me. The greatest thing about space though is the incredible view I have of all of the planets and stars from the side window of the control room. There is no sight on Earth that compares to it. The planets look so colourful and bright, enough to make my mouth drop wide open with excitement. I am on this mission with three companions, Lloyd, Peter and Billy. Lloyd is the captain and the one who makes all of the main decisions. He is a big strong man in appearance, but inside you can tell he is a big softy.
Peter is the brains of the group and if anything goes wrong with the ship, he is here to fix it. He has a pointed nose and big round glasses. Then there is Billy, he is the one that does the cooking and cleaning. I myself am the soldier of the group and control the weapons on the ship. Our mission is to reach the planet Cyclops which was recently discovered only a few weeks ago. ?Dinners ready?, shouts Billy from the food room. There are three rooms in our ship, the control room, where all of the main computers and weapons are, the rest area, where we can relax, and the food room. I unbuckle myself from my seat in the control room, and suddenly my body starts to float on air. It?s great, scary, but great. I make my way into the food room, struggling on my way, and I find myself walking normally, without floating. ?Why am I not floating in here? I ask ?This is a specially designed gravity controlled room with gravity? says Peter ?Oh? I say puzzled. I sit down at the plastic table and begin to eat my meal. It consists of a watery, pasty substance with a glass of green liquid. I know that this was the food to give us everything we need each day to survive in space. Suddenly an enormous bang on the side of the ship topples us all over. ?Incoming fire!? shouts Lloyd, ?Go and take care of them? he shouts at me with a stern look. I run into the control room and look at the radar to see that there are two small fighter ships on our tail. I activate the shield generator to full power and aim my torpedo cannon at the first fighter. I soon have it in range and blast a missile at it. It hit it and the fighter ship explodes. I quickly move my second missile, aim at the fighter, and fire it. The missile misses by a few metres. I quickly aim a third, blast the missile at it and hit it in the dead centre. It explodes into flames. I go back into the food room where the gang congratulates me. I don?t feel like eating anymore so I go to the rest area to have a think. I start to think about home, my eyes feel heavy, I need to sleepâ??â??â?? I start to think about how it would be on Cyclops. ?Quick come to the window and have a look?, said Billy, Peter ran to the window and shouted, ?It?s amazing! It?s amazing!? Feeling excited I get up and rush to take a look at what they had seen. I see a red planet shining without any moons; all of us stare in absolute amazement, I can barely wait to get down there. ?Everybody to landing positions? Lloyd commands and we all take our seats at the control panel, ?Steady as she goes? Peter says. We are now flying above the planet in ready to enter its atmosphere. ?What was that?, I shout! A small piece of rock or some kind of material in a strangely perfect ?X? shape, lit in a bright green colour whizzes passed the window. Without giving it a second thought I continue to focus in preparation to enter Cyclops?s atmosphere. The ships speed rapidly starts to increase, I hold onto my seat gripping hard, we are heading towards the ground. ?The engines have failed! We?re gonna die!? shouts Peter. Oh no I think to myself, this is it we are going to hit the ground, I put my hands over my face. ?Wake up! Wake up!? said Lloyd, I can hear his voice and feel him shake me. I open my eyes and with a sigh of relief realize that I have been dreaming. ?We are here, we are here? I get up and follow Lloyd into the control room. Peter and Billy are at the window. ?Quick come and take a look? says Billy ?It?s amazing! It?s amazing? shouts Peterâ??. I?ve been here before, things seem to be repeating themselves, ?Stop thinking like this it?s just a coincidence? I tell myself. I take my seat with the others in ready to enter the planets atmosphere. ?Hey what?s that glowing green thing in the shape of an ?X? " Lloyd shouts. I feel my body shiver, I am cold all overâ??â??.It?s actually happening for real
