“Why are we doing this?”

“Uh, what?” Matt looked up from checking his gun (again) and gave McCravey a slightly worried look.

“Why are we doing,” the scientist waved his arm encompassing the gateroom and Gate Team 5’s assorted team members, “this?”

“Because they told us to?” Matt started to hand McCravey the extra glider kit then remembered what had happened last time and clipped it onto the geologist’s rucksack himself.

“Yeah, but why?” McCravey tugged on the shoulder straps (again) and frowned as the marine finished adding an extra first aid kit beside the glider. “Ninety percent of the stuff we find out there just wants to kill us. It’s like climbing mountains just to see if there’s a dragon on top of them.”

“I thought you liked dragons.” Matt shouldered his own pack and gave Amy and Ant a ready-to-rumble nod.

“On paper–”

“Alright kids, quit griping,” Trish herded her team into position as the gate whooshed open. “We’ve got a galaxy to explore and new and wondrous versions of space chicken to catch for dinner.”

“Mmm, dragon the other other other other white meat.” Matt grinned and ducked through the horizon before McCravey could retaliate.
