THE PURPOSE OF THE SYSTEM
The System guides, the System protects, and they will heed its call.
The habitat appears defenseless, but is it? There are strange gaps in their communication, strange odors that no one can place. The System has given them their orders and has an explanation for everything.
But that explanation is called into question when members of their team start to getting killed. Those remaining have to ask themselves the unthinkable: is the System out to get them?
A science fiction story about a mission gone wrong in the vast depths of space.
The Purpose of the System is a short story by Clint Westgard
