Mission: Echoes of the Damned: Pilot Episode.

Henk was lying on his biobed waiting to be released from sickbay. For the moment he was working on a letter to his father. Although he couldn’t stand the sight of being with him, he at least could sent a letter to his father, letting him know he was alive.

Dear father,

You might have heard of the tragedy with the West Ridge. Don’t worry about me, I survived. I’m the only one who survived. I’m rescued by the crew of the USS Genesis.
I know we never got along, but I just want to let you know I’m still alive.

Henk Ó’Brein

Henk again sat upright. Slowly he looked around sickbay.
~I need to get out of here. I need to find all these people.~ Henk thought.
He slowly slid down of the bed. Trying to stand on his feet. His legs where a bit weak, but he could walk. Slowly he tried walking to the door. Halfway there he collapsed.
“God..” Henk cursed.
A nurse came an helped him back to his bed.
“I cannot even walk.” henk whispered.
He looked at the PADD and picked it up.
“I cannot even save seven hundred people. It’s all my fault. If I saw these things on the scanner this all wouldn’t happen.” Henk whispered. “It’s all my fault.”

Henk looked at the PADD for a couple of minutes. Slowly anger began to build inside him. As he looked at the PADD he saw al the faces of man, woman. The faces that angered him the most was of the children. suddenly he threw the PADD across sickbay. With a loud bang it smashed again the wall.
“I don’t deserve to life. I should have died with the rest of the colonist.” henk whispered.
