He looked up at the tachyon accelerator, trepidation welling up from deep inside him. And while the accelerator itself was huge piece of technology, the complex it was housed in was massive and required enormous amounts of power. For a brief moment, he wondered if he was doing the right thing. And even though he had volunteered for the assignment, with one foot now on the steps leading up to the acceleration chamber, he was more then a little uneasy about it all. And just then his mothers voice was in his head once more, speaking about not taking unnecessary risks. Let the little people take the chances. she had said. You're much too important to be risking your life on petty things.
“Ready, Colonel?” came the firm baritone voice of General Kellar as he came up from behind and laid a hand upon the younger mans shoulder.
Turning to face the general, “Ready as I'll ever be, sir,” Galen said.
Looking at the younger man before him, the general leaned in a bit closer so that only Galen would be able hear him, “You know, son, you don't have to do this. A dozen men and more have all volunteered for this assignment, same as you. I could just as easily as let one of them go and test this monstrous contraption,” the general nodded over to the accelerator.
“No,” Galen said solemnly and without hesitation. “Not in a thousand lifetimes would I step away from this now. Especially when I'm just about to leap off the edge.”
Looking Galen in the eye and taking a more serious tone, the general began, “Your mother…”
“Isn't here, sir,” Galen said quickly as he cut the older man off. A man who was a mentor to him. “And even if she were, I'd be stepping through this thing just the same,” Galen had said it all in haste. And instantly regretted that he'd spoken to this older man that he so strongly respected, all too firmly.
Sighing, he spoke again. “I'm sorry. But I know what you're doing, sir, offering me this moment to step back, to step down and away from this responsibility that I volunteered for.” Galen then looked up at the accelerator, “This thing has never been tested before, at least not with a live traveler. Sure, on paper it works great. And it works exactly the way it's supposed to every time with a rock or metal or some other inanimate, inorganic object. But now were talking a person, something organic. And there's no guarantee it's actually going to work the way they say it's supposed to because this will be the first time a person is being sent. I could die. My atoms could be spread across a dozen parsecs of space…”
