AN ANTENNAE ARRAY BUZZES WITH ELECTRICITY AND GIVES OFF A MILD GLOW AROUND ITS SUMMIT AS DUSK LAYS ITS SHADOWS ACROSS THE LAND. ITS GENTLE HUM IS MATCHED BY THE CRICKETS, THE ONLY INDICATOR THAT THE OTHERWISE BARREN LANDSCAPE IS NOT COMPLETELY DEAD. THE TALL GRASS THAT STRETCHES FOR MILES IS WILTED AND DRY; THE MOUNTAINS IN THE DISTANCE ARE SHROUDED WITH SMOG. THERE IS NOT A SINGLE STAR IN THE SKY.

A FEW PACES AWAY FROM THE ANTENNAE ARRAY IS A SMALL, DECREPIT HOUSE WITH A DIM LIGHT SHINING THROUGH THE TATTERED CURTAINS. INSIDE, A BOY OF PERHAPS ELEVEN YEARS DAYDREAMS AS HE DOODLES PICTURES ON SCRAPS OF PAPER. HIS FANTASIES SEEM TO CENTER AROUND A SINGLE CHARACTER, AN ASTRONAUT. IN THE REST OF THE HOUSE THERE IS MOSTLY DARKNESS, GRIME, AND SPARSELY FURNISHED ROOMS.
