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.

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

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.

They have enough in common to know to be afraid of us.

Inspiring.  I think I'm going to go and fetch some old drawings of mine, and see if I can upgrade them, now that I see it can be done.
