Intro Four: Blue

Stepping out into another time was a really weird feeling. It did not matter if it was your first time doing it, or the last. It always felt odd.

The air was different. John breathed it in in deep gulps. A noticeably higher level of oxygen per breath. Not just that, but it smelled different too. This air lacked the additives and nutrients that home had. And the ultraviolet radiation was greater. The control centre had been right to advise him to wear a sunblock and carry vitamin tabs.

John looked up to see that the sky was blue. Heh. Now that was something that people at home had not seen in a long time, he thought, and felt an unexpected jump in his heart-rate. He missed the old sky of home already. This was going to be a long trip.

Intro One: Drip
