Oh man, I so want to watch/read/listen to this story!
I just stared it for him yesterday
THE END OF FLESH
BY JOHN RIDLEY
Galaxy EGS-ZS8-1, a dim glow of the edge of the universal expanse, more the 13.4 billion years old, is now fading from existence. Old even amongst all the galactic spirals in the universe, is now dying.
Suns and stars extinguished, planets gone cold and frozen and gravity fluctuating and fading as celestial bodies break loose from their orbits, crumbling and spreading into dust.
A lone spec streaks at near light speed in the darkness. hardly recognisable in the infinite black. Hardly a mile long with a large rotating midsection, this life boat from the planet Islara carries some of the few survivors this galaxy spawned.
An unseen eye travels the corridors of the vessel, though well lit corridors till it reaches a large hatch. Emblazoned on it in the alien tongue is “DANGER-AIRLOCK”. Suddenly the air moves and the sound of the
fabric of time and space rend aside as a strange object become material in the hall. (A small Egyptian obelisk about 8 feet tall”")
Inside the TARDIS the Scout masterfully sets her craft down. She beams as she looks over to Garnet.
“How’s that eh? Landed her on the head of this needle travelling at light speed. not too shabby.” (Hope you don’t mind the way she speaks here...if that’s not how you want her to come across please edit the dialogue)
“Impressive. Your new regeneration has an increased hand eye coordination.” Garnet moves to the door side of the console “ I guess you plan to explore this vessel?”

EEP! Should I not have seen this?
Nope...nothing in the text gives away any plot
interesting use of the alexei leonov from 2010: odyssey two
It's a favorite ship of mine
That's a good-looking lady.
No..... I don't think I ever heard of that. It's a video game I take it
An expansion to Sword of the Stars II.
I've never heard of it
4X game whose schtick is that all the different factions have different means of FTL. The titular "End of Flesh" refers to the in-universe AI getting rowdy, rebelling and becoming the new playable faction. They have some fun lore and I enjoy the opening cutscenes but I've not played any of them.
Ooh, now that's an interesting premise.
