Something that makes me a bit sad is the knowledge that I’ll never be someone who sits in a spaceship, strapped to a seat, and then gets deployed onto a planet’s surface from the upper atmosphere. I know, I should keep my hopes up and never say never, but I remain fairly convinced this is unlikely to happen. Clearly I’ve no desire to then be involved in the ensuing war. As soon as I landed I’d scarper off and hide until it was all over. But that exciting deployment moment looks awesome. Oh, and the getting to go into space part. I raise this vital discussion in light of the trailer to celebrate the launch of Section 8, which features such a moment.
It also features a moment where someone says, “We are completely engaged,” which might be the best phrase ever.
