Meanwhile, aboard TB5:

Virgil waited, pumping
in air quietly, bringing the pressure slowly up.

The first person to emerge from the hole in the hull was dressed
all in black, some kind of body armour over his spacesuit. He wore no identifying
marks. Virgil channelled the video directly to his brothers, Gordon included.

“Who the hell are these
people?”

Two more people emerged,
one possibly female. The first attached a device to the airlock between the
docking port and the main command module.

The moment all three were
clear of their ship, Virgil opened the exterior airlock.

Highly pressurised air shot
out the end of the docking port like a gun. One man was thrown out immediately,
his body spinning into space.

“One down, two to go.” He whispered over Scott’s comms.
