EVA by Abiogenisis EVA by Abiogenisis
Powerful Birrin societies have engaged in space exploration and exploitation for decades, constructing a number of orbital facilities, satellites, and launching several manned interplanetary missions. The critical orbital systems, with their relay of radio and television data, climate monitoring, GPS signal transmission and global defence, form an expensive and vulnerable investment by the major houses.

Maintenance of these systems, and the manning of interplanetary vehicles, is undertaken by a politically independent astronaut corps funded by an investment pool of nations and organisations with interests in space. Paid well, the corps construct, salvage and decommission orbital objects on a contract basis.

Seen here, a technician sets to work repairing damaged internal systems on an orbital antennae. The large impact-hardened diagnostic package has been integrated with the antennas' interface to root out faulty code or hardware for repair or replacement.

I've come to love your Birrin. Not only for their alien design or their human-ness but because they're so real yet so very optimistic. The attention to details that you've put in, showing the Birrin in all their daily motions, is really something inspiring to see. I'm so glad that I and many other people get to appreciate this all for free.

Trying to fill a gap I saw in scifi, which seems to be aliens just going about their business :P

Does this take after their fall? If so good, they managed to pick themselves up.

This is indeed after the fall. It took several thousand years but they got back into space.

I dont like the idea we seem to have that cataclysms mean the end of everything.

And then the newly-repaired antenna starts picking up strange radio signals, in an alien language, apparently from a planet called Earth....

Beautiful artwork. Your Birrin culture is wonderful. I hope our first contact with extraterrestrial life is with someone like them.

But I bet they hope they never meet someone like us!
