THEY’RE NOT COMING back for us.

— They are! You fool, they are!

No, they’re not. You’re logician enough; you should know this. If they were going to come back for us, they would have by now, fait accompli. You’re in denial.

— Look, God damn you: the equipment was wrecked in the explosion. They’ll have had to rebuild. They might not have our precise coordinates. Maybe it’ll take a day, maybe a week, maybe a year. But they’ll come back for us.

I don’t share your optimism.

— No, you don’t. You miserable paleontologists: we’re all dead, dried bones to you.
