I'm no expert on writing fiction, so I'll just say it's good enough to get me interested and looking forward to its continuation.

Dig it! I'm glad you're doing this -- I am too and are we insane?!?! lol. You're off to a great start (I saw the second part to this -- I'm hopping over to read that next!), and keep it up! :D

Sounds like a good beginning. Esp. like the "mears" for Mars-years. Good touch.

One thing Heinlein did so well was to be able to drop a detail into a story (best examlpe: "The door dilated") w/o explanation & let context establish it. (Few cowboys ever paused to explain their Colt .45's, after all...)


Might be a good idea to have some sort of sealant sprayed on those lava-tube walls... cut air loss via fractures as well as avoid silicosis, etc.

Don't forget to take care of the atmospheric water vapor (w. dehumidifiers) - don't want to waste water, after all...

Do they really need an elevator in 0.3G? unless heavy equipment is coming up & down, I'd think a ladder more than adequate.

Best of luck w. the story!
