The Prime Director
Jeff is intrigued by an interview he read about Nasa’s one and only Planetary Protection Officer. Her job? To protect OTHER planets from us and ensure the galaxy isn’t contaminated by microbes, particles, or other detritus that might ruin it. Anthony hopes for the same attention to detail in his own life, and everybody hopes we don’t ever accidently create avacado creatures.
