The mission (Part 3)

Neil returned his glasses to his personal locker. By this point, he was almost recovered from being in stasis, and he was starting to feel more and more comfortable with his new body. He went to the computers to see how his crew was doing. As it turned out, not well. The automated breeding program had not gone as well as hoped. Very few of the crew were going to be awoken in young, healthy bodies. A few would be stuck in older, infertile bodies from previous generations. Others didn’t have a body at all; they would remain as brains on the ship for the time being. It also seemed that the incubation systems aboard the ship would not be able to be used for future births. That meant that once they touched down on the planet, all females on the ship would need to start reproducing with as many different males as possible. This was needed to produce a sizable population with adequate genetic diversity. Neil’s face went white as he realized that since he was in a woman’s body now, he’d be pregnant for the rest of his adult life.

  1. Wow, what a story! It looks like Neil is in for an interesting life unless he can somehow get the incubation system repaired! LOL
