The situation was desperate or we never would have attempted it.

When our ship crash landed on the icy planet we thought we were doomed—until we discovered the underground ocean beneath the frigid mantle.

Using the supplies from our ship and the scientific knowledge stored in our databases, we set out to transform ourselves into beings who could live on this world. It was either that or die. We did not have enough supplies to survive for long.

Now we stood at the edge of the ocean, knowing we had no choice.

As one, we dove into the water.
