“The fuck is that?” Minner asked, the sweep of his hand encompassing the large screen in front of our eyes which displayed our current location.

“Look like … frozen grass to me,” Shelly said, her head cocked to the side in thought.

“Freaking huge grass,” Minner added, stepping forward. “Is the ship’s camera magnifying, Captain?”

I ran my fingers lightly over the control panel, my eyes searching the landscape in front of me for some clue about what I was seeing. “It doesn’t appear that way.”

“So our ship is roughly the size of a titmouse in a field of frozen grass,” Minner stated, “while we are the size of ants.”

“I think that sums it up succinctly,” I replied quietly.

Several of the crew members murmured curses under their breath, quietly looking around our defunct ship for an exit strategy that wouldn’t come.

“Look,” Shelly whispered, pointing a shaking finger at the screen where something large was cresting the hill in front of our ship.

Clearly the grass wasn’t the only thing that was oversize on this foreign planet.
