By now it's clear that Mission Control does the bidding of admin, another name for the US Government agency in charge of space flight, and Commander Field is starting to see some cracks in the moral universe that Mission Control works so hard to support. Admin is running hundreds of missions all over the solar system, many to mine on Mars, large asteroids, the Moon, which of course is the Lunar Sparrow's mission. Commander Field calls this out as colonialism, but Mission Control maintains that the nations flying the solar system do not own the celestial bodies they are exploring -- only the materials they take.
Their debate is interrupted by a strange presence that Commander Field senses on the surface but which Mission Control cannot detect.
