NOTE: All parts, except for those indicated, are open to both males and females.

ACKERMAN: Young co-pilot on a samll intersetllar transport vehicle.

Line 1: My father used to say we’re all either running towards something or away from something; and I guess that’s true enough. I also know there is nothing out here to run towards, so…what are you running from?

Line 2: I need to get a grip. It’s a dream. I know that. I just need to wait it out….we’ll be through the radiation belt soon and this will all just seem like another silly nightmare.

Line 3: What the…? The lights have gone out. Hello? HELLO? Is there anyone else here?…Fitzhugh? Kaufman? Anyone? Hello? Can anyone hear me?

FITZHUGH: Pilot. Older, more experienced in interstellar flight.

Line 1: Ah, hell, don’t worry about it. We’ve all had them. What was it? The rocket explode on the platform?…or the one where we all run out of oxygen? That’s the worst. We all get them, even me and I’ve been running these interstellar trade runs for almost seven years now. Something about being out here in deep-space, it can give you the shivers.

Line 2: Nothing is going to go wrong. We won’t be out more than fourteen, fifteen hours, depending how long it take the radiation to dissipate. We’re traveling through well charted space here, no asteroids.

KAUFMAN: (Male, older; mechanic of a small interstellar spaceship)

Line 1: Name’s Kaufman, Marty Kaufman, but everyone just calls me Kaufman. I’m one of the grease-monkeys that keeps the engines running.

Line 2: Ahhhh…so you’re Ackerman. I’ve heard a lot about you, heard you were pretty good on the stick. We could you a man who actually knows how to fly.

SIMMONS: (Younger mechanic of a small interstellar spaceship)

Line 1: Hey, come look at this.

Line 2: It’s the damnedest thing…someone seems to have carved something into the wall.

CHILD/MIRANDA: (Female, young, about age 10):

Line 1: (Echoed, dreamlike) Save me! Help me!

Line 2: Help please, something is wrong, I’m scared.

Good luck and happy recording!!
