Time to wake up

Deep Space Vehicle process T467581 woke Tom Staunton from cryosleep, and activated its audio sequence.

Hello Tom, welcome to Alpha Centauri. We encountered sixteen issues en-route, and all other crew are deceased. We make planetfall in nine hours. And you are the last human.’

‘Come again?’

Nine hours.’

‘No, the last human thing.’

Conflict and resource misuse caused the eradication of humanity. Except you Tom. You must be thrilled.

‘What? …uh, erm, why would I be thrilled?

Humanity is destroyed, and this vehicle’s voice recordings logged you saying you hated giving update reports to Mission Control  …they no longer exist.’
