(Music – Chaika’s theme by Chris Gregory)


This is Valen Solarin, engineering lead lunar mining. Seeking urgent status update on… well, earth.


Chaika. A science fiction audio drama.



Nothing has been heard from the Mars colony since before Earth went silent. Maybe… Maybe they all died too. And all I will find is their bones. I could be the last. The last human. (beat) I cannot stay. (calls) TROST?

(TROST entry beep)




Could you… Um, could you prepare the shuttle?


Affirmative. Long or short range journey?


Oh, long. Very long.

(Footsteps, spaceship doors opening, HYGGE entry beep)


(in Danish) Velkommen. [Welcome] I am HYGGE. How may I have the pleasure of addressing you?


It’s Chaika.


Chaika. Russian for seagull. Call sign of Russian cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova. The first Earth woman-


-in space. Yes. My… my mother gave me that name.


(LEQU entry pop)


Probably time you got to know some non-human people.

CHAIKA: Oh, you mean like you?

LEQU: Yes, I am a delightful acquaintance.

CHAIKA: I… Yes, I am sure you are.


HYGGE: You frightened her.

LEQU: Ah, she’ll get over it. (beat) She has other things on her mind.

VALEN: Repeat, priority communication to moonbase- (breath) Get back to me and tell me this is just a glitch, all right? Please.
