“We’re now seeing the base of Byrne Island!” a reporter said.
“The spaceship Truth will take off for the space tomorrow, then travel to Centaurus, Alpha Galaxy!” another reporter announced.
“We can see from a distance that this base was built on top of the Pacific Ocean, and it is…”
“Journalist Anglica from CBS, reporting to you live!”
As many warships and merchant ships came to Byrne Island, there were also ships from the journalistic companies that had arrived and were reporting on it. Helicopters were also landing at the airport, and everyone was finishing the last bit of work.
Transportation robots were moving quickly, bustling about and going everywhere on the ground. They kept entering and exiting the portal of the base and the cabin door of the starship.
As for those crew members who came to Byrne Island the first time and had now returned, when they saw the spaceship Truth, they were all amazed. Just as they got out of their helicopters and walked to the spaceship from the airport, they found that it was truly a giant spaceship that was beyond their imaginations.
They were especially amazed at the inside of the spaceship, as it was a spacious city, not like the usual interior of a small spaceship that looked like a tiny coffin! Many of those who had just entered the spaceship immediately became engaged in intense discussions.
Everyone present was a top-tier genius, and although none of their specialties was astronomy, they knew that it was practically a miracle to be able to make such an impressive and giant spaceship like this, which could actually fly into the outer space! As they entered the spaceship, they were amazed by everything that was going on inside of it.
The moment they entered the spaceship, service machines came up to welcome them, then immediately led them to the residential area. These were intelligent robots that could communicate with people, and the guests couldn’t stop asking the robots questions in order to test their functions and levels of intelligence. After seeing the results, which were very impressive, they all gasped in amazement.
A group of twenty-something people entered the cabin, including Wang Yi and Zoey. When the elevator reached the residential area, everyone was stunned when they looked down at the portals that were connecting the blocks of buildings. They all started to ask questions at the same time…
“Oh my god! What are those things?”
“Are you sure that this spaceship was made by the earth people? Are you sure it’s not a UFO that was left by aliens?”
“My god! Are you kidding me?”
The elevator went down along the transparent tube and stopped at the entrance of the residential area. Then, a streamlined car that looked like a can stopped at the door.
A group of people then got into the car, which was floating! It didn’t follow a railway, but it still raced forward like a high-speed train. It got close to the residential area at the center, while traveling past building facilities that looked like factories, research centers, and warehouses.
Suddenly, the group of people raised their heads and saw the portals and bridges that were connected with each other. The robots were walking around on them and the materials were piling up. After seeing this, the group of people continued to move forward in the car.
After they got inside the residential area, they saw about a dozen people, all of whom were dressed in white, standing in the hall of the area. They were clearly waiting for them.
Each of them was also wearing a special silver bracelet. These bracelets were were different from the temporary ones that they had before. It seemed that the new crew members who had just entered the spaceship were the old human beings, thus differentiating them from those wearing white.
“Greetings, everyone! I am the acting captain of the spaceship Truth! My name is Gu Chaoran. Welcome! We’ll be working together for a very long time from now on,” Gu Chaoran said.
He then added, “I am happy that you have joined and will soon become a part of our community! From now on, this will be your home! Now, we are all brothers and sisters!”
As Gu Chaoran walked forward to greet them, he looked passionate. Then, a middle-aged Asian scholar, who looked young and energetic yet had some grey hair, said, “I am Xu Hai! This spaceship is kind of different from our expectations. It is such an enormous spaceship, and the technologies you have are way beyond our imaginations!”
Gu Chaoran nodded, then replied, “That’s because you guys just arrived, so you don’t know a lot about this place yet. But, you will gradually learn more, and you will soon discover that the technologies and power that we master here are far beyond those of most worlds.”
After this, many of the people present raised some questions, and Gu Chaoran patiently answered them all. Wang Yi then said, “It’s been my lifelong dream to explore this space, and before I arrived, I was thinking that we might live in a cold and lifeless spaceship, similar to a coffin! I also thought that we might be frozen in a dormant cabin most of the time! But now, everything seems great! Is this where we’re going to live from now on? This place looks exactly like a human city, as I even saw streets and all sorts of living facilities! This place is amazing!”
There were similar discussions being had among all of the newcomers…
“Based on my calculation, a spaceship of this size can hold more than 100,000 people! Moreover, this is clearly a spaceship that was made for colonial purposes. So… Why are we the only ones here at the moment?”
“It’s indeed bizarre! This doesn’t look like a spaceship that is used for exploration. Instead, it looks like a spaceship that was made for an interstellar colony. Based on the technologies we know about, it’s almost inconceivable to build an exploration spaceship to undertake interstellar travel, not to mention a colonial spaceship as fancy as this!”
Gu Chaoran didn’t answer these questions. Instead, Molly, who was standing next to him, said, “We’re not going to live here! These are not our designated living quarters!”
Everyone was shocked to hear this, and Wang Yi, who was clearly unsettled, asked, “Then… Where will we live?”
Molly then said, “There are 43 people present here, including me. Once the spaceship is launched, we’ll all be promoted to members of the management committee of the spaceship Truth. We will then be the controllers and managers of the entire spaceship. So, we will live on the upper level of the management section in the control sector.”
She then added, “As for the lower level, the captain will make different arrangements regarding that. For now, everyone here will be a member of the management committee of spaceship Truth. Soon, you will be put in various important positions in the spaceship!”
Gu Chaoran nodded, then said, “We have arranged for you guys to meet here because we want you to know some information about the spaceship Truth first, and also, the temporary identification bracelets don’t grant you access authority to the management section and control section. The service robots will give you new identification bracelets for access to those later.”
He then added, “For now, you can walk around the spaceship and familiarize yourselves with the environment. If you need anything, you can ask the service centers and the service robots for help. There are all kinds of service facilities, restaurants, sports and game centers for you to enjoy, and they’re all free.”
He smiled, then concluded, “You can also call a car service! We realize that this all new to you, and as it is an actual city of the future, it might take you guys a long time to familiarize yourself with this place. But, there will be a welcoming ceremony for you all on the upper level tonight, which should help smooth the transition! Please arrive on time!”
After he finished telling them the basic information about the spaceship, he prepared to leave. As the acting captain of the spaceship, this was the busiest time for him, as the spaceship was about to be launched. In fact, he had only come down from the upper control area for a brief moment to greet the group because they were very important people.
Zoe then asked, “Who is the captain you are talking about? Is it Anthony? I want to meet him!”
As Gu Chaoran turned around and looked at Zoe, he immediately recalled her name and said, “Zoe Sharp! Is that really you? Well… Don’t worry! When the captain wants to see you, you will surely meet him!”
