The Beginning :)

From above the unknown planet looked rather homely and friendly. The first scanning of the atmosphere made with an on-board computer showed that it was breathable.

The shuttle landed on the coast of a sea, or maybe a large lake, or maybe even an ocean; a sandy beach was stretching to the right and to the left of the shuttle. Running upwards and away from the water, it changed into green hills and forests fenced by distant mountains. It was a cloudy day, and it was probably rather warm up there, in the hills, but here on the coast a chilly wind was constantly blowing from the sea, bringing in a mixture of smells, mostly pleasant ones. Large birds - probably some sort of local gulls - were flying low over the water, crying shrilly. All in all, it looked not too unlike Earth.

The sun broke through the clouds, and in its rays several other shuttles could be seen landing on the beach or going through the atmosphere to the surface of the planet.

- Pleasure to meet you, Mr McBayne. Or can I just call you Allan?

- Allan would be good. Anyways, who cares for last names here... - he smiled again.

- You have a point here, - she agreed. - As for bird-watching, that was not part of my job description, indeed. I was in public service. Not much to tell about that, though. What about you?

- Rocks and ole' bones, - he said. - Got a degree in biology, but happened to become more of a digger. Cretacia, Jurassic an' all. Still, Earth geological knowledge won't be o' much help here, I'm afraid.

- The planet doesn't look too different from Earth, - Stella observed. - So your knowledge may still prove very useful.

She looked at the hills and mountains.

- Why don't we go up that hill and have a good look around?

- Agreed, - it sounded more like 'ah-greed', really, - let's go and search for some live... mm, body in this vicinity. - Allan turned around, inviting Stella to follow him.
