Dr. Mary Kirkish: Seven years ago I was stationed on Mars. We were always getting false leads on artifacts supposedly buried beneath the Martian soil for thousands of years. Nothing ever came of it. And then one day our sonic probes picked up something three hundred feet beneath the surface of Syria Planum. We didn't know what it was. Except that it wasn't a natural formation. And given its depth, it had been there at least a thousand years. It was in the middle of Martian winter, so it took weeks just to dig half of it from the ground. But that much was enough to give me nightmares for the rest of my life. It's the same ship we have been seeing on the news lately, the one that looks like it came straight from hell.
