Book Two in the Empire Saga, stand alone short story, prequel to Nehemiah, LLC.

Mark and Michelle sink everything they have, everything friends and family could invest, in the giant gas-collection balloon ship Sojourner Now it is a simple matter of surviving to suction a full load of Methane from Titan. Massive gas storms, a tiny life pod that might not keep them from freezing, and the looming shadow of government seizure of ship and cargo "for the greater good" might interfere with their sleep even more than equipment failure, loneliness, and sleep deprivation.

Primary systems for braking thrust to establish parking orbit around Titan have failed. Switching to primary backup controls.

Several seconds passed. Neither the husband nor the wife stirred in the darkness. The computer continued.

Backup systems for braking thrust to establish parking orbit around Titan have failed. Switching to redundant systems.

Not again, sighed Michele.

She smiled weakly at Mark. Both jumped out of bed and dressed silently. The stark, straight, barren walls behind them began to glow with an even light. Mark and Michelle Connors were both in their early forties, alike enough to be brother and sister. Taller than average, they both had brown hair and blue eyes. Mark wore a brief beard, and Michele kept her hair long and loose.

How many times have all the automated systems failed? asked Michele.

Fourth time since we left Martian orbit, said Mark.

But it hasn't failed completely this time. Yet.

Main redundant system has failed. Switching to reserve redundant system, said the computer.
