Space is big. Space is very, very big. There’s not a lot out there either. The chances of Chris & Dan finding anything, or even having a place to stand is pretty slim. They’re pretty much dead in space thousands of light years away from home and any other humans. It’s tragic.
Well, “recruited” is kind of a strong word. Dan gets hired to work in the cafeteria and Chris helps out in HR. Still, they get business cards that say “Central Intelligence Agency” and that really impresses the ladies, ya’ know?
