Zero: Hello, universe. This is Icarus ship 184-31A, resuming broadcast after some minor technical difficulties. Internal relative time is 21,946,623.685 Earth years post-launch.
Zero: The stellar fragment is shining, the weather is absolutely PERFECT, and life is continuing in its beautiful endless dance.
