3. Everything must go

The engineer looked at the figures and sighed.

“The whole system’s overheating - it’s a runaway feedback loop.”

“It’s a fine balance - look at S2 that completely melted and S4 that ended up freezing”

“I know, but I was always fond of S3 - some of our best work there”

“Looks like we’re going to have to flush the whole system and let it reboot - we’ve done it before”

“It’s a pity - thought we’d got it right this time”

She sighed again and hung a sign on the planetary biosphere controls for the pale blue dot that simply read:

“Everything must go”
