Sleep. Needed. Deep.
“Set Condition 1SQ”
Awake, suddenly alert.
“Man Battle Stations Missile for strategic launch”
Up, Awake, dive into the poopie suit, run aft, swinging through hatchways before they close.
At the Panel, electrical busses are green.
You could turn them off… Stop the launch with one switch, stop the madness….
If it is 1SQ, then your family, your world, is gone.
Screw it. send ’em. Missiles away!
