It starts out like any other wake-cycle in the Silver Shrine, the Last Bastion of the Silvites.
Eefina wakes up in her private apartment, in her soft and comfy sleeping capsule, and stretches as she heads to cleanse herself for the day.
The first strange thing she notices is that the light screen on the way to the dining court is malfunctioning. Instead of decorative scrolling glyphs, it's flickering between flashes of a... drawing of some kind of weird wheeled land-truck?
The second strange thing that happens is the SUDDEN EXPLOSION that destroys the light screen entirely, ripping open the hull of the Silver Shrine and exposing the corridor to the vacuum of space.
Eefina is not prepared for a spacewalk at all.
Decompression sucks her out into the void, and she gets to enjoy an unimpeded and deceptively peaceful view of the planet below for the several long seconds it takes for the nitrogen in her blood to sublimate and wash away her consciousness. Her last thought is that the Silver Shrine, her entire life and world up to this point, looks so very small and fragile in comparison.
