December 20, 2236
This Revised Travel Warning for the Democratic Republic of the Moon provides an update on the Station's security situation. Following the recent attacks on the Post-Julian Extrasolar Port, all travel to and from the Democratic Republic of the Moon has been restricted by the U.S. Government to authorized Station personnel and their families.

It is nothing short of a prison, except you are the only inmate and the warden never takes a break. Ever.
I do not exactly remember when I let fear occupy my being but I remember the exact moment when I realized I was ruled by it.

Then I was awakened from a nightmare by my
