(Seeing a population boom and lack of land on Earth, the Global Space Agency constructed the space colony Terra Venture to find a new home for humanity. And now, five days before departure, Willy Crowmeowme arrives at the GSA base, to report in for his new duties as a special training instructor.)
Willy (thinking): I doubt anyone else arrived by limo.
(Willy walks over to a man in a GSA uniform.)
Man: Can I help you? Willy: Special Training Instructor William Crowmeowme reporting.
(Willy hands the man his duty assignment.)
Man: We've been expecting you. I'm Mike Corbett, second in command of Terra Venture. Willy: Nice to meet you. Mike: I understand more members of your family will be joining us. Willy: They'll be arriving with the other civillians, in a few days. (thinking) Even though they wont have seen me in a few years. (aloud) Has the livestock been shipped up to the colony yet? Mike: Not until Monday. Why? Willy: I've got a horse. Want to make sure he's OK. Mike: So, you have several black belts, and you own a horse. Anything else? Willy: I can write computer programs. Been doing that for years. Mike: Talk to our science division about that. I'll introduce you to one of our science officers later.

(Mary, now 16, has returned, and is a HIgh School Graduate. She is interested in biology) Rainbow: Right on cue. This is for you. Mary: A ticket? Rainbow: For Terra Venture. We think your talents are best for that place. Mary: I can't go. I Have so much to learn. Melissa: YOu will go. We cannot teach you anything else. Rainbow: We will drive you there. The launch is in a few days. <tbc>

(Rainbow, Melissa and Mary head for the nearest NASADA shuttle area) Rainbow: Hopefully, you will be able to find a place for humans to live. Mary: If I do, I will contact you. Melissa: From what I hear, the lines are crowded with those trying to sneak in. <tbc>
(Among those waiting are Alfred and KK. Both are now 18, thanks to time travel. KK has recently graduated high school, while Alfred is a college graduate, with a few degrees, thanks to a heavy course load. He only had time for Bree on weekends and between semesters, but they made it work.)
