“ENSIGN GEHLEN,” SHE SAYS, AS THE SURGEON-BOT PREPARES FOR AN OPERATION, “WELCOME TO THE OTHER SIDE.”

KOA EMERGES, TRANSFORMED. HIS HAIR IS CUT AND GROOMED. HIS UNIFORM IS BRAND NEW, SMART, PERFECTLY FITTED. HIS ONCE-RUGGED FACE IS NOW SMOOTH AND CLEAN, AND FITTED WITH SLEEK BIONIC INSERTS.

KOA GEHLEN IS NOW INDISTINGUISHABLE FROM HIS DREAM SELF, THE DASHING SPACE HERO HE HAS ALWAYS WANTED TO BE. HE HOLDS HIS HELMET UNDER HIS ARM, WAVING TO THE CROWD BELOW WITH THE OTHER HAND. HE RELISHES HIS HERO’S RECEPTION, FORGETTING, FOR A WHILE, EVERYTHING HE HAS GIVEN UP. HE IS VICTORIOUS AT LAST.
