From the Logs of BASIL

Brief: Write a monodrama (A play for only one performer.)

Excerpt:

The Cousteau has just completed a humanitarian mission to the planet we refer to as Aquaria  Three, though the native population – a race of sentient marine mammals not far removed from the Terran cetacean species – has a different name for their world. The organic beings among our crew have been unable to reproduce the name, but I have managed a close approximation that the locals told me was ‘close enough for krill.’

Notes:

This piece is a sort of prequel or companion to a short story written a couple year’s ago: A Winter Tale
